The chances of finding a RH dman who would be comfortable on the left side is extremely slim. The NHL isnt EA sports.

Semin re-signed for five years, $7M AAV.

And the thread was very quickly filled with Leafs fans who think Kessel is better (and some even say much better) than Semin.

Well that's just the ***** being the *****. Outside of us I enjoy seeing them lose to no greater team then Detroit.

And yet they're gonna get Kessel re-signed for <$6M per year as well. No worries though. They're gonna sign Getzlaf and Perry trade for Bobby Ryan and wait for Kadri to become that illusive #1C.

They got their next game vs. Columbus. I don't know what to think about that. Bobrovsky can alone win the game for CBJ.

Columbus has been great lately. In their last 10 games they've been 7-1-2, which puts them third in the NHL in that category, only behind Pittsburgh (10-0-0) and us (8-2-0).

Is anyone else hearing rumors about Leslie Alexander wanting an NHL expansion franchise for Houston?

It was beautiful.
Went back and watched the last few minutes on GameCenter...beautiful is right. Their tears are delicious.

Next expansion is going to be to "slam dunk" cities, not to a boom/bust like Houston. Seattle getting a team is somewhere between a likelihood and a poorly-kept secret at this point. Québec will be milked for comically large relocation and/or expansion fees. Prior failures like Atlanta, Phoenix, and whoever flops next (Dallas? Miami?) have made everyone a bit more conservative about the whole "new markets" thing.

I might be the only one, but I'd rather our 1st lane stay as is. The cycling from that line is great, even if it isn't that flashy. (part of this success IS coyle)

Meh. You could score 800 goals like the top line did last night. Big deal.
Or, you could have Parise-Koivu-Filppula-Iginla-Broduter-Metal Crosby as the top line.

And before you make your decision, you should know that Metal Crosby comes with a bluetooth deep fryer pizza cannon, and instead of having skate blades it uses circular furniture mover pads co-developed by the space program and the makers of Booty Pop.

Except I stopped hearing the rumors about Seattle getting a team about two months ago. Right at the same time as I started hearing Houston as the next "expansion" not for a relocation.

In the end, this will all be determined by who has the fattest checkbook...

Seattle could, and should get a team. They just need a good rink placed in a good spot.

There are a lot of midwesterners that live in Seattle, as well as Canadians. Seattle is also a huge weekend destination spot for Canadians from all over Western Canada. That, and many people in Seattle like more alternative sports to football and basketball, etc. I could see the Hipsters getting into hockey. There's a reason waterpolo and soccer are so popular over there.

Little known fact: Seattle had the first ever U.S. Stanley Cup winning team. Not that anyone there knows that...

It was a joke. He will be claimed a way before he even gets to Wild.
