On an unrelated note, my friend started following the Kings last year (before the playoffs). She was telling me that she was going to an autograph signing this past weekend which included "Gag-knee". I had to take a deep breath and let it go before calmly telling her how to pronounce his name.



Yup, our 2013 went to the Wild because we made the ECF. Currently we have:

2013: 1st*, 2nd, 4th, 6th [3rd = Zidlicky, 5th = Loktionov, 7th = Ponikarovsky]
2014: 1st*, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th [4th = Ponikarovsky]
Didn't even have the 3rd to give. Giving the Kings a decent body for Gagne would of been to much.

So glad Cole is out west.

as i've said before, the atmosphere at nashville games is better than any i've been to (and i've been to quite a few at this point).

And you're not the only person I've heard that from. I'll look to bond with Preds fans through our mutual dislike for Minnesota.

They have always been my favorite team in the West. Before this whole fiasco.

I wanted Ryder too. I'd still take Jagr.

One of my main targets would b Ribeiro.

How on earth did the Habs get a draft pick AND Ryder for Cole? Damn, Nieuwy isn't exactly Stevie Y-caliber.

Haha Cole! Bye bye ********!

Now I can root for Montreal, and not feel sick to my stomach. Always hated that POS. Most recently his hit on Larsson last year and no suspension, his big mouth during the lockout, and his actions in our game this season against them. Among other things in the past.

Sometimes I would try to watch all the goals from the nhl.com boxscore which I do for the Devils if need be, but doing it for the other teams takes forever because of the commercials and for some reason nhl.com's videos always take forever to load for me.

I dno why I rambled that much but basically I'm just asking if there is an easy (and free) place to see highlights for all the NHL games the night before. (That also isn't a super long segment, I'm not looking to spend like an hour watch random people's analysis or anything lol)
The best I can give you is NHL.com has highlights for every game. You usually have to wait a half hour/hour after the game ends. Though you have to watch the 30 seconds advertisement like you were saying.

You could go to individual teams websites, and watch them without the adds. It would be less of a hassle to just watch them on NHL.com though.

I like that trade for Montreal, Ryder is good. Didn't think Dallas would trade him.
Ryder is also well acquainted with playing in Montreal because this is his second stint there.

Nieuwy definitely needs to smarten up. I just don`t get it.

Yzerman hasn`t really been that good though.

One way or the other, I`m just happy that ****er is now out of the EC. Thank God... and Bergevin.

NHL memo details new realignment plan for 2013-14 season

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...4111--nhl.html








I know this was discussed a long time ago but still.....Our "Conference" will be very tough should this get approved for next season.

This new realignment plan is just utter ridiculous. HATE it. Don't know why they have to overcomplicate things and change something that already works. If it aint broke don't fix it.

I just don't see the logic. Detroit and Columbus are closest yet in separate conferences?

Carolina should swap with Detroit if you want that to make more sense imo. But yeah, that's a damn hard conference for us.

Logically, Detroit moving east makes sense. The whole time zone thing and for the most part travel too.

But then Detroit doesn't really play their 'rivals' in Chicago and Colorado. Not to mention Chicago is pretty close to Detroit.

It's freaking impossible. I'm trying to figure out a "good" solution and it's hard.

Couldn't care less what they do with the conferences.

Just don't mess with the playoff system. That isn't broke, so don't try to fix it.

It is going to be very difficult to see 1 or 2 teams in the conference miss the playoffs after playing in such a tough one all season.

But when they add QBC and whoever else in, things will definitely change in a few years.

Remember when a meteor hit the arena in Chelyabinsk?

I think you need to see this. Especially the end, but watch the whole thing.

Look for the Carolina Hurricanes to trade for a veteran defenseman over the next few days.
