General NHL News & Views / Anaheim fires Bruce Boudreau
« on: Yesterday at 12:23:02 PM »

#NHLDucks have relieved Head Coach Bruce Boudreau of his duties, Executive Vice President/GM Bob Murray announced.

Ottawa's next coach?

Keefe said the entire team was told before the playoffs began that there would be lineup rotation due to depth and that even the core guys could expect to sit some games.

I think it's one of those cases where you take them at face value and don't read too much into the scratches other than the team being just outrageously talented.

I mean at one point one of the Bridgeport announcers said they believed the Marlies 4th line could be a first line on several other AHL playoff teams.

But in Soshnikov's case he is legit injured so that's why he's not in the lineup.

We're in OT right now. Oshie thinks he scored a goal, ref calls it a good goal. Puck definitely doesn't look like it went in. Checking now.

edit: Well there's an angle showing it's good. We'll see.

How does that ref call it a goal on the ice?  There's no way he can see it in from where he was.

4 goals on 12 shots for Bridgeport - Marlies heavily outshooting them and down 4-1.  3 for 4 on the PP for Bridgeport.

AHL Live is getting trashed on twitter for having a feed that is primarily showing the crowd and not the game.  It's also appears to literally be a guy with a Videorecorder from the 90s.

AHL Live generally (or maybe even always) just shows the jumbotron feed and puts the radio feed over top of it. It's overpriced garbage.

But this was worse than that.

On paper I think I like the Caps more but I'm having a hard time seeing Pittsburgh not win this.

I dunno, Holtby?

That's a big advantage for Washington, for sure. Offensively, they're pretty even. Pittsburgh may have a slight edge in depth, but, it's still pretty close. Defence and goaltending are in the Caps' favour, and that's likely to be the deciding factor.

Just looking at waronice, I really don't know how much of a defensive advantage Washington has.  5v5 GA/60 was 2.0 for Pitt, 1.9 for WSH.  Pitt was the better 5v5 CF team and Pitt's goaltending looks real good too.

The legit Draft Lottery Simulator. Now with more tension, suspense, and fury.

The NHL should honestly just air someone using that site for the lottery. That's how it should be.

That person just can't be me because I was having terrible luck just now.

Winner: Montreal Canadiens.

Yeah I think I will just close that now.

Gretzky turned out okay being clearly better than everyone at all levels he played at.  Not that I'm saying Gretzky is as good as Marner.

This is basically a Marner highlight reel:

Some of the nicest didn't even end up as goals.

He heard your criticisms and has responded with 3 points.  Still 10:00 left to add to it.

EDIT: And a 4th point.

Capitals are Capitals-ing.

They were literally all over Philly and lost 2-0:


BTW, shot attempts were 82-27.

Same stuff Phillies pitcher Stumpf was suspended for recently.

Ok Blue Jays Talk / Chris Colabello suspended 80 games for PEDs
« on: April 22, 2016, 04:11:29 PM »


Blue Jays 1B Chris Colabello suspended 80 games without pay after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.


Colabello has been suspended for testing positive for dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, a performance enhancer

He's basically saying the he needs luck to win a first round series.

Well lots of people have shown how hockey is one of the sports most prone to randomness so it's not wrong.  And he didn't say they need to be lucky to win a first round series, but that in a short, 5-game series whichever team wins will need to be lucky as well as put themselves in a position to benefit from any good fortune (i.e. by outperforming the other team in the areas that they can control).
