Pavelec is stoning Geno left right and center. Holy cow.
I want to see how Philly does this year. Giroux was huge for them last year, but so were his 2 linemates, Jagr and Hartnell. Jagr left via UFA and now Hartnell is missing likely in the 1/3 range of the season. How will Giroux play without those 2? And with already suspect defense I expect them to be on the bubble.

Man that last minute of the Bruins game was funny.

Seguin tried twice for an empty netter.. Missed twice.

Chara hit the post.

Almost every Bruin got a crack at it, nobody scored.

Not exactly powerhouses. I hope it's just because of their competition. I don't want to see them succeed lol.
Exactly... like Montreal, I want to see them face some tough teams.

I don't see him as a top-pairing D-man. He's just... good... in all areas.

Decent defenseman but he's no where near as smart as Pietrangelo.

I can't believe people compare him to A Pie. There is no way he'll be that good.

These boards sure do overhype prospects.
Man - that's some bitter haterade going on. 3 games, 3 points for Dougie. He's looking pretty good for only being 19!!

So Ovechkin still without a goal - just one assist. He looks like he has just completely lost his edge, lost his motivation and that intensity he used to play with. Looks uninterested.

How is saying he reminds me of Brent Burns a bad thing?

Not exactly hating.

Dougie's skating isn't up to par and he's clearly being sheltered, he looks lost in his zone.

Yeah seriously lol. I wonder if that's it...I really do...I think he loves Washington and wants to win with them, but honestly the organization is a mess IMO. Their goalies are wildcards, they can't seem to find the right coach, and their franchise forward is in a major funk. This might be the year McPhee gets the axe if they can't turn it around.

No thanks.

9.5M cap hit.

That's like 15% cap hit on ONE PLAYER that isn't even playing well. He'll take a huge overpayment to get despite that fact.

I still think they're too good to not make the post season.

Outside of Pits, Ny, Bos and maybe Buffalo (i think Miller can carry them), the east is wide open.

Definitely not hating Dougie. I said he's good in all areas, just not great.

That's a player who was #1 in the world not that long ago. A player who scored 65 goals once, and 50+ numerous times. A player who just this year looked great in KHL.

You wouldn't take Crosby because he might get a concussion after any random hit?

He's playing 20+ minutes a night in his first 4 games. Sheltered lol.
