The Avs had **** defense the last 4 years first off. Second, the Hawks have not had as **** of a defense outside of last year. They have had poor goaltending though, which Crawford has certainly been a part of (sans last year).

Crow was fine his rookie year. We've seen one bad and one great year from Crow since then, although this year isn't looking too great its not over yet.

The Avs defense is good this year.

The Hawks defense was TERRIBLE in Crawfords sophmore year, Crawfords rookie year was great when our team defense wasn't and last year was great. This year he hasn't been quite as good, but he has been decent.

Varlamov has his crap games and soft goals just as often as Crow.

Our defense lets up just as many quality scoring chances as Colorado does.
Varlamov was amazing for the first ~2 months. He has been average since then.

Because Colorado's terrible defense has finally caught up.

Semin caps the Canes victory over the Blues with an actually impressive "empty net" goal.

Scrivens just barely passes 100 straight saves before Boston finally finds a crack and gets one by him.

I think Bryzgalov can kiss his NHL starting career goodbye at this point

He blew his last chance with Oilers and is now getting outplayed by Scrivens

Might have been smarter for him to wait it out or sign AHL contract at this point. Going into Edmonton a team in absolute disarray wasn't smartest move in hindsight to try and prove your worth to NHL teams

Might catch on with a team as #2 next year at very cheap rate (Maybe even remain in Edmonton for that role) but no team will view him as a potential #1 with his failures in Philly/Edmonton

was at the leafs game tonight...kessel in with the hattie. their 'uwt attends, leafs win' streak continues on since last year's playoffs.

i like bernier a lot. i've decided they can probably get away with Bozak as their 1c if they find some way of shoring up their defense. they need to stay in top 3 for the atlantic (technically 2/3 spot, because their chances of passing boston this season are exactly 0). if they can manage to draw the habs or tampa in the first round, they have a decent chance of winning the series...esp. if they draw the habs. if they're wild card they'll draw boston or pittsburgh and, i suspect, buh-bye.

Ryan Callahan was offered a 5 year $30 million contract that he turned down because he wants 7 years $42 million?!

Toews and Kane extensions might be pricey than I thought...

The team that signs Call to that type of deal is really going to regret it. For years 5-7 that deal would be an anchor.

Still plenty of time but early in 2nd period it is 3-1 Caps over Red Wings

Wings currently out of playoff spot and have 27 games remaining after today

I will be shocked if the Wings miss playoffs in first year out East

Sucks to see Detroit earn a point, though.

Jets keep on winning.

Noel's gotta be in the same boat as Gretzky right now. Team immediately turns around once someone else is put in charge. Don't see how anybody would give him a coaching gig now.
