There was some talk that Donato was going to replace Heinen (who has 0 points in 5 games), but this probably works out to be a plus for us.

But when I want to post something to the effect of "wow, Zaitsev looks bad tonight," I don't really look up the numbers to back it up - I just post it.  If someone challenges it - even with numbers (i.e: "he's plus +2 and has a goal and an assist.  I think he's playing great!") - I don't take it personally.  It doesn't really invalidate how I feel.

I'm personally offended that you think anyone in the analytics community would ever stick up for Zaitsev... and with +/- to boot!

;)

You make one jerkish throwaway semi true quip and everyone loses their minds...

Sorry for being a jackass, I thought it was clear I was being obtuse for comedic effect.

You live and you learn.

The mods here do an excellent job compared to most cess pools online, anyone having a pop at them is out to lunch.

We have mods here?

My time is mostly spent deleting all of Frank's sub-par posts.

Our 3rd centre next season will be Tavares, Thornton, or Nylander. You can take that to the bank.

They'll try for the first two, and if they strike out it'll be Willie.

Babs had these lines for Game 5's morning skate as well but swapped Plekanec and Kadri prior to the game.

In a do or die game though, I think he'll stick with the shutdown centre he's trusted for the past 2 seasons.

That's literally something that would have been said in that Moneyball scene.

Honestly not sure how a doctor would have cleared him to play but ok... good performance by Coots.

It's the Flyers. Do you remember Eric and his concussions?

Eric probably doesn't.

•Regarding Komarov, Babs said that he's only at 85% right now and that he hasn't been told by the medical staff that he's available (even though Komarov said he was ready to go)

Medical staff is definite on our team.

I bet it's just Dubas wearing two pairs of glasses.

Speaking of being a dick about numbers, was there a statistical model on this earth that had VGK anywhere near what they've accomplished this year?

There was actually at least one model from a prominent stats person that predicted that Vegas could be really good this season... but that was PRIOR to the actual expansion draft and based on Vegas picking guys that the model/fancy stats liked. After the expansion draft that model had them as bad as everyone else figured.

The Oilers are apparently signing a soon-to-be 30 year old KHL goalie because he put up good stats while playing on that SKA super team. Goaltending problems = solved.
