He has plenty of skill and a decent shot he just seems to lack motivation and drive.

He has had Ovi to aid in his offensive stats but arguably is a different player without Ovi.

But its likely a pipedream to think he would rack up the same points without Ovi.

Bourque is beasting...

I wonder if Stamkos or Callahan get blamed for choking?

Personally I don't see the Caps' PP under Oates as really all that different than it was under Boudreau. Moderate different positioning of Green/Carlson and Ovechkin but what everyone is trying to do and how they are doing it is pretty much the same.

Stamkos had the puck for 6 seconds in the entire first.

Did Tampa ever get screwed.

Also, Yzerman is a cold killer.

Gratuitous Ovechkin bashing in order to elevate the Canadian hero of the moment. Goddammit, I hate that ****.

i thought that was funny. how does stamkos playing 200 feet make him a better goal scorer? maybe more complete player, but not better goal scorer

Healy is a retard.

Now Stamkos' GPG was .67 and Ovechkins was .65, but that was a full season...

On top of that Stamkos has had 2 very similar GA/20 seasons of being over 1 GA per 20 minutes of ES ice time, but both them had his teams on ice shooting percentage nearly 12 where as Ovechkins was under 6.

and Stamkos isn't even good on defense.



Watching the LA/SJ game...Kopitar is the EXACT kind of player this team needs. I love Backstrom (favorite player on the team), but I'd trade him + something else for Kopitar in a heartbeat.

except last month, or when he plays more than 5 games in a row without ovechkin.

How are they better and how can you tell from them playing each other?

I can just watch and see, I haven't seen any team in the east play at this pace yet. Can't you just tell by watching ?

Review wouldn't matter, by the letter of the rule the correct call was made.

The lone representative of the old SE Division, the Blotz, are down 3-0 and ready for an early sweep exit. How the rest fared:

WPG: last in division
FLA: next to last in division
CAR: next to last in division
WAS: 5th in division, first loser in wild card race
