Des Moines is in Iowa

Maybe you're thinking of Des Plaines? I know I confuse them a lot.

But yeah, three AHL teams in Illinois. One right over the border in Milwaukee. And three others within road trip distance in Cleveland, Grand Rapids, and now Des Moines.

Unless Quick plays above his head like he did last year, the Kings won't win the Cup.


Randomness in the NHL? The same good teams last years are good again this year. The middle of the pack teams are the same middle of the pack teams and the teams with lotto picks are again around that range.

Games in hand is fine but the Jackets already have those 2 points... DAL could get them

Soon to be only two teams in Illinois, with Peoria almost assuredly going to be moving.

But I'm not too worried about Columbus if we face them. Our problem this year has been starting a bit too lightly against them by taking them for granted. That won't be an issue in the playoffs, imho.

Dallas has the tie breaker over both CBJ and Detroit. As I said early in the week, I fully expect Dallas to be in. Then it just comes down to whether CBJ can bump Minnesota or St. Louis, a tall order for sure.

Over an 82 game season things even out. In a 48 game season there is more variation. That much should be obvious.

And in a 7-game playoff series just about anything can happen.

Yeah it is. Police resources are better served in the Boston area than in arena security and traffic control right now.

It's a great game, but it's still just a game.

Looks like 4/5/6 is going between LA, SJ and STL with MIN, CBJ & DET playing for 7/8 with DAL as outside chance

Ryan Clowe gets a fresh start and has looked really good for New York. He would have looked great taking shifts in the top six as the player we all want Carbomb to be.

Agreed, however he cost a lot and is going to be too expensive on his next contract

Oh I wanted him strictly as a rental. He's going to get paid 4+ this summer.
