OK that's nice. Now **** off to your own board.

Guys, Ottawa doesn't even play defense. They just let Craig Anderson save every shot, assuming the other team gets any shots, which they won't, because the Erik Karlsson-led offense keeps other teams in their own zones for 60 minutes per game.

Also, Karlsson's slapshot is so scorching hot that it will blaze you to the ground and you'll be begging for the cast of Backdraft to put the fire out.

Legitimate question; does anyone on this board go other boards to talk ****? It seems to happen frequently around here.

I go to the boards of teams I root for.

Caps board (full)
Avs board (full)
Buffalo board (Bills thread only)

I had a really difficult time restraining myself from commenting in the Buffalo board thread about how their season ticket prices are going up for next year (STHs notified on Fan Appreciation Day).

I'm not saying I don't go to other boards; I like reading opposing fan's insights. I just don't go to other boards and spout off a bunch of nonsense. Drives me nuts when I see it here.

Kevin Kolb and EJ Manuel. Yikes. On the plus side, they're not Marc Sanchez.

I see the townsfolk don't cotton to strangers in these parts, so I'll just tip my stetson politely and leave, but first: Y'all should know that Ottawa gives up tons of shots on goal, more than any other team in the NHL. So if they're trying to trap, they're not doing it very well. They also shoot more and score less than anyone. They have very, very little scoring ability. Without great goalie play, they're sunk. Nice talking to ya.

I think you'd have to read this board with some frequency to properly appreciate the dynamic around here, but thanks for illustrating why I don't want to play them. Boring offensively, and a great goalie. Sounds like Montreal 2010 2.0.

I'm sure someone following a team captained by the kind of dbag who'd slapshot another team's captain after the game knows all there is to know about character issues.

I believe I was banned from the rangers forum the last 2 years during the playoffs. Totally worth it

NHL.com breaks down PPs by situation, but not PKs. Best I can find is that behindthenet has the Caps giving up 2 3-on-4 goals in 3.5 minutes of 3-on-4 play... but then that might not be updated with last night's game too. I can't remember, honestly.

Thanks. So sounds like my recollection is correct. Not playoff relevant of course, but sheesh.

As an FSU alum and somebody who follows the noles, I have no idea what these scouts see in him.

It's not that we mind outsiders so much, but more that when said outsiders come into town guns blazing, we tend to shoot first and ask questions never.
