For anyone who cares - Dallas and Pittsburgh played a terrific game last night.

For anyone else who cares... the top of the Central Division is beasting.

Paid Kane and Toews.

Ended up in salary cap hell. That and their goaltending ain't what it used to be.

Not that anyone is shedding many tears. I like them there.

Chicago's current plight is possibly both a good thing and a bad thing for the NHL.

3 years ago they won the Cup for the 3rd time in 5 years and now may not even make the playoffs which says volumes about parity, long term dynasties like TO's in the '60s, Mtl's in the 70's, NYI and Edm''s in the '80s aren't possible in the Cap era. That's probably a good thing.

Chicago after winning it's 1st Cup had the players to win at least for the next 5 years, it was brilliant management but they couldn't keep that team together. They had to move Ladd, Byf, Campbell, Versteeg and others to stay under the Cap and they're still doing it. If you can put together a roster as good as their's was you should get the benefit, that Chicago didn't become a dynasty is probably a bad thing, I think.

Nobody has ever said life is fair.

Losing 6-1 to the Yotes is never a good thing.

No. It's not.

Anymore than losing 6-0 to the Cannots at home is.

Look out now, the Coyotes have won 4 in a row. 30th place, here they come!
Beat Edmonton 1-0 today. Another big performance from Raanta.

I feel so bad for the Yotes... I really hope they can win the lottery this year and turn it around and have
something sustainable. I'm one of the few people that believe that market can be a success and
completely turned around.

Hopefully they can build an arena downtown Phoenix that both the Coyotes and Suns can share.

I'd rather the Suns move North, but that's just me. :wink:

Why? Look what Vegas did in their expansion draft. Not sure why anyone would want the Coyotes over an expansion team.

Stars season is over. Not officially. But - it's over.

Folded like a cheap towel.

But I am.

Hopefully we can live up to the expectations when we break into the league in 2 years. I hate rooting for crappy teams. :wink:

As you well know by now, the Mariners have ruined the sport of baseball for me entirely. I've become completely apathetic to it. So much so...that I took up the sport of soccer in it's place lol. Give me a decent hockey team, or else.... :D

Yeah I guess I'm a Golden Knights fan if I can ever get to Vegas to watch a game.
