Patrick Kane with another assist tonight. 21 points so far. I love seeing him tear it up.

The Islanders could be for sale.

This would be great, as just about anyone would be a better owner than Wang.

New building, new owner, one of the best young players in the league and several other good young pieces. Things could really turn around for the franchise if the right ownership group steps in.

Just shows you how completely random this league is and how much parity exist. Two teams that drafted in the top 5 last year are well on there way to the playoffs this year. While the top 2 teams last year are doing horrible and barely hanging onto 8th place.

My god the Colorado vs. Edmonton game was awesome. I love the pace, trading chances, and energy.

Jealous we don't have a team like that.

If the Kings continue to suck, it could be a potentially amazing draft for Columbus considering they have the Kings 1st rounder.

The Blues fight for every inch on that ice. They make you go through hell just to get a SOG. In that regard, they're the anti-Sabres. Buffalo is content to just sag back and let you fire away.

I know it'll never happen, but then NHL should have all hockey be 4v4. It's just better.

All seven games in the NHL yesterday were one goal games. We had three games that ended up 4-3 and three games that ended up 3-2. Unfortunately the Rangers and Capitals had to be different and couldn't break the dead-lock as the Rangers won the game 2-1. The 4-3 games had the away team winning. Too bad the Jets lost to the Bruins at home otherwise the 3-2 games would have had the home team all winning. All games played in the United States ended in regulation with the lone game played in Canada ended in a shootout.

So it was a very close Hockey Day In America yesterday. Ok, one game was played in Canada - what was up with that? Blues should have hosted the Canucks. Guess it was returning the favor as last weekend for Hockey Day In Canada - the Red Wings hosted the Oilers. At least the Blues won so all the United States teams won and we didn't have our day spoiled with a Canadian team win and we didn't give them a win like they did for us last week as the Oilers lost to the Red Wings.

I guess it's possible considering how few games their are, but really it shouldn't happen. I'd expect them to come on strong and probably make the playoffs again. They're only 4 points out of the final two spots and have 2 games in hand over those teams. The big wild card to me is whether Edmonton starts to turn it on a bit as I could really see that happening as the season progresses.

Yep, and it's been that way since I started watching hockey. I guess part of it is I see those players less, so watching them play in a neutral situation is a treat (this is my first year having GameCenter Live as well), but really Western teams have played a more entertaining brand of hockey for a while now.

I agree. This is the first season I got Gamecenter as well, and I`m enjoying it quite a bit.

Lindy Ruff hockey.

That's barely an exaggeration either, dude is a huge proponent of the collapse, except he does it without the crease clearing defense, elite shutdown players and high-pressure, structured forecheck + puck pursuit schemes of the teams who implement that type of system effectively. As a result, we're an absolutely ******* possession team.

Throwing this out there: Should they still select All-Star teams to give the deserving players the honor despite there obviously not being an All-Star game? It'd be for the entire season rather than the first half as normal, but it'd be a similar amount of games in question. I think they should do it, perhaps by player vote rather than the typical fan vote since there won't be a game anyhow.

They already do the end-of-season 1st and 2nd team All-Stars.
