Nuuuuuuuuuge! Breathing life into the Oilers. Good for him. Solid guy, both on and off the ice.

Is it weird that I'm a little upset that my team is winning so much? I had my heart set on a year of painful rebuilding.

You'd be joining the rest of the country in that feeling

Hey, if the playoffs started today, Derek Dorsett would be playing hockey, and Connor McDavid would be playing golf.

Badly, I might add. If he wasn't so freakishly good at hockey, he wouldn't have much going for him.

The VGK start a hefty 6 game road trip to test their record setting vaulted start, against the Islanders of New York tonight & Rangers tomorrow. They will face 8 of their next 9 opponents on the road...what a brutal stretch. The team is currently 8-1-0 16pts.

So McDavid's girlfriend posted a Halloween picture of them on her Instagram. They're dressed as Trump and Melania. Of course, people are either saying it's funny, stupid, or incredibly offensive.

I'm on the side of not giving a ****, except for her caption for the picture. First it was "Make America Great Again" and then she changed it to Mr and Mrs Trump. I think she's just an idiot and doesn't understand why her caption is the problem, not necessarily the costume. It's hard to tell if she likes the two of them or not. I'm guessing not, but it doesn't come across that way.

TL;DR, McDavid's girlfriend is pretty, not smart and could have played this out better.

Blues beat a hot LA team and retain unbeaten Home Ice. Btw our new scoreboard is gorgeous.

Trump's a national shame, but he's OUR national shame. (I got nothing?)

Eventually, the comments dove into how "racist" McDavid is for dressing up as a racist. This coming from people who posted hashtags like #mayonnaiseass to describe white people.

I know it's so hard for some of you to believe; but, yes it's true...the VGK is on a 3-game losing streak. 1st in franchise history & 1st 3-game road losing streak; all against franchises they have never defeated. Their next contest will be Saturday, against the Senators of Ottawa...another team the vaulted Knights have never beaten.

Blackhawks, Bruins to face off in 2019 Winter Classic

https://www.nhl.com/news/2019-winter...ed/c-293098132

Quote:
The 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® will feature the Chicago Blackhawks® and Boston Bruins® outdoors on Jan. 1, 2019 at Notre Dame Stadium, home of the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the National Hockey League (NHL®) announced today.

The New Year's Day matchup will be Chicago's fourth NHL Winter Classic appearance and Boston's third.
It's sad that only like 6 of the 31 NHL teams are ever allowed to participate in the Winter Classic.

btw, I spoke to Chris (who runs the SHHFHL), and he's aware of your interest, and will send you an invite next season.

After 12 years, I think I'm starting to enjoy shootouts.
It was thrilling last night and fortunately Ducks won.

Big win by the Knights in OT 5-4 over the Sharks of San Jose. The Knights are 14-6-1 through 21 games, with 29pts; just over a quarter of the way through the season.

I think this team is a playoff team, even if they don't finish as high as they are now...which if the playoffs started today, they would hold the 3rd seed in the West. They are just 4 win shy of what someone <cough> thermobat said would be an 18 win team....minus a catastrophic collaspe.

Vegas Strong Baby!

The issue with the Golden Knights is that although they are playing WAY over their heads at this point, and currently sitting at 3rd in the Western Conference, they specifically took a lot of guys in the expansion draft, like James Neal, who were on expiring contracts with the thinking that they could just sell them off at the trade deadline to contenders for picks/prospects to speed up their build.

So now they face the dilemma (if they're still in contention come the trade deadline in March) that if they hold on to these guys for a realistic 1 or 2 round playoff run, they most likely lose most of them for nothing to free agency over the summer. So next year and for likely a few years after, they're going to be abysmal.

They're essentially mortgaging their future for the sake of qualifying for the playoffs in Year 1. I think you may see the GM and owner at odds over how to proceed with this.

The best time to be bad in a place like Vegas is during the first few years. After that you'd want to see them building towards something sustainable on and off the ice.

10 in a row? Then it's a record, right?
Flyers losing streak record was 9 as of 2006.

Lol, if Russia doesn't have a team at the Olympics, the third-tier players that Canada sends might actually be in contention for gold again.

He's a good player... just having a mediocre year in Jersey...
Is he on their 3rd line?
