Did anyone see that dance that Mikko Koivu did when he scored the tying goal tonight? Definitely don't see that everyday. I wonder if I can find a video of it haha.

I hate the main board. A bunch of idiots trying to prove to everyone how awesome their teams are by posting bragging posts/threads.

EDIT: Example - "Kane for Calder Consideration" or "Top 10 Hockey Players" with Lemeuix ahead of Gretzky and pens fans trying to make a case for it.

Good for Shanny...


NHL TO ANNOUNCE HIRING OF BRENDAN SHANAHAN
Quote:
Brendan Shanahan has found a job.

The recently retired NHL star will officially be hired by the NHL today.

Shanahan's title will be Vice President, Hockey and Business Development. He is expected to work both with Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly in the NHL's New York office, although he's also likely to be involved with executive vice president Colie Campbell's Toronto-based hockey operations department.

I'm sure JXC is pleased, but Randy Jones had 9 points and is a +2 in 11 games. (4 Goals, 5 Assists)

He'll now proceed to have his shot blocked, fall down, and get benched.

That is also confusing to him. Did Randy Jones just decide to get better (which is something that his insane logic dictates as a possibility) or does he now just play on a team with a system?

But, I've also heard that, despite the points, Kings fans have already noticed how ****** of a defender he is. He's still a positive plus minus but how many defensemen score than much in 11 games and end up only being +2?

Yeah, I remember a few games ago Kings fans were *****ing about him and already had grown sour of him. I'm not sure if their opinion of him has changed or not since then, but I'm pretty sure most Kings fan recognize how inept he is at defense.

One of the very ineptest. And then they pair him with Jack Johnson, like some Horseman of the Apocalypse come to wreak further havok on Jack's +/- .

But he can sure score.

I guess I'm one of the few that aren't really surprised, as based my previous posts on the matter. Interestingly enough, everybody laughed at Jones that he was going to go and sit on the bench in LA...he's playing 20+ minutes.

Selanne's out several weeks with a broken had.

Tough season for the Ducks so far.

So, what's up with the Emery situation? Will he be able to find his game back? Was he the reason the the last few loses?

He's part of the reason.


Scott Parse giving Briere a run as an early favorite for goal of the week.

I still think it would be awesome if we could get a hold of Jagr from Russia. I know I'm dreaming, but sign him for cheap enough and get him back in the NHL. He's too good not to be in the NHL lol.

Im assuming you have Richards?

No way. Marleau may be awesome right now, but Goaltending is so valuable in fantasy, especially good ones like Thomas.

he got benched last night. 1 goal game against a team who owns then (calgary) and terry murray took him and planted his ass on the bench for the entire 3rd period. Search rich hammond's blog for more. I thought he had been doing decent but i havent seen as many kings games recently

I'd think about it, there's going to be a pretty serious goaltending controversy up here if there isn't already, Rask is looking incredibly good and Thomas is 35 and who knows how his style will hold up considering the wear and tear he puts on his body?

So Brodeur reached 103. How many of them were against the Flyers?

i said this last year, thomas reminds me of cechmanek. Lots of flopping, little technique, but very awesome for a while. Unless youre brodeur though, goalies like that the book is written quickly on.

I'd do it, but it's a close one. Marleau is going to rack up a lot of points on that line of his (at least as much as Richards I think).

Rinne is having a great year and playing behind a very good defensive team. Thomas isn't playing vezina-like last year, has a great backup to contend with, and has an odd goaltending style combined with old age.

I think Rinne will have a better year.

It's close, but I'd do it. I'd see if you could get a bit more out of him though.
