Nothing could symbolize those lines as well as that pic you posted. Well done, sir, well done!  :D

Spent 5 minutes looking at pictures of tanks to find just the perfect one. Time well spent IMO.

I'm hoping the new NHL websites TOI thing is broken.  It has McDavid playing 26 minutes midway through the 3rd period.  It also has Tavares at 29 minutes.

Must have been broken in-game. Says McDavid finished at 16:18 and Tavares 19:04.

Some good news: The Habs won at least. 2 in a row for them now.

Mostly good night. Habs, Jets and Flames win, Leafs lose. Oilers lose. Sabres pick up 1 point.

Toronto now in just a 3-way tie for last.
We need McDavid to haul the sad sack Oilers up the standings.


Check's today's scores.

Oh dear.

7-1. Well McDavid at least scored.

Marner is done with the OHL. This league is absolutely beneath him at this point.  The Leafs are making the wrong decision if they send him back to Juniors next year.

At this point even giving him 10 minutes a night on the 4th line with some PP time would be better than the OHL next season. There's no way he going back again.

Ovechkin hits 30 goals.   That makes it 11 straight 30 goal seasons to start his career.  Only two other players have done that (Mike Gartner and Wayne Gretzky).  The Capitals also won their 38th game of the year.  Braden Holtby won his 33rd of the year.  Brodeur holds the record with 48 wins.

And one of those seasons was the lockout year.

So I know that it gets thrown out there too much, but is Karlsson generational?

That word means different things to different people. To me Sid and Ovi are the only generational players in the league, with McDavid having that type of potential. The term though is also somewhat biased against defenders and goalies.

Karlsson's really impressed me this season. I think it was late last year there was a discussion about him and I said in a general ranking he'd probably fall in the 3-5 range of defenders for me, but this season he's clearly leading the pack. And that means there's a solid chance he wins his 3rd Norris trophy by the time he's 26 years old. I can't check but I imagine there's not a lot of defencemen in the history of the league who can say that. That's 3 in 5 seasons, and a pretty serious Achilles injury/recovery that took place in the years he didn't win.

Karlsson has 59 points in 53 games.  He's on pace to hit 90 points this year.  The last time a defenseman did that was Ray Bourque in 93/94.

And Bourque was 20th in the league then. Karlsson is currently 2nd in league scoring. Since some people have a hard time calling him the best defenceman in the league I'm just going to call him the best NHL player who doesn't play forward or goalie.

Man, there have been a whole bunch of guys who should be contributing a bit of offense who have pretty much disappeared over the past month or so.  Holland, Gardiner, Lupul of course.

Bozak was goalless in 15 games prior to NJ. Parenteau has 1 in 12. Komarov has 2 in 18.

If anyone's interested, I have another complaint about a commercial in heavy rotation during the game.

The Scotiabank one right?  Tell me it's the Scotiabank one.

Wow, mindreader! Damn right the Scotiabank one.

So the kid goes to see the scotia financial panther cause he needs to see his family, or something, and the panther says "I've moved some stuff around and saved you a bunch of cash" - and he's all happy? Wtf? Isn't the obvious question why the bananas that hadn't been suggested a long time ago?

That's exactly what bothered me.  WTF did I have to come in and talk to you about something that would take 20 seconds to do and save me 1500 bucks?

It'd be one thing if she said something like "we've moved some of your investments around to free up some cash" or something like that, but no - the direct statement is that we've come up with free money. It doesn't imply anything but complete incompetence.

I've been thinking this literally all season. You people really get me!

And down goes Matthias. I guess we don't need trades to gut the roster after all.

Nice one-timer from Phaneuf. If we do keep the 1-3-1 PP set-up he shouldn't be the one on the top of the umbrella, he should be on that right side of the middle.

How many TMM penalties have we taken this year?

I remember someone saying we were top-3 or something in them this season.
