NHL 2015/16 - Period 3

Recommended Posts

Dennis Wideman had his suspension reduced to 10 games by an arbitrator. The timing said the hit on the ref was "unintentional". He's already sat out 19 games so he'll get a reimbursement check for 9 games.

Wiedeman's text that came up was sent to gregory campbell, colin's son. Hmmmmm

The amount of foolery this process has gone through to avoid discussing the concussion is really something. Like, if we actually pretend he wasn't concussed (and I totally buy that he was), literally nothing else about this makes any goddamn sense and you'd be in the clear saying ban him for a year or more.

 

What a mess.

Referee in question, Don Henderson, will miss the rest of the season with a concussion.

I never really noticed this before but Ryan O'Reilly is probably the most Irish looking guy I've ever seen.

Malkin out 6-8 weeks. Our odds of getting Isles-rags in the first round just went up.

Also Jack Eichel is awesome. Buzzer beater for the OT win. They also had pizza delivered to the booth and Mayday gave the delivery girl a $2 tip. Stay classy!!!

So, here's the thing with the Blues.

 

After yesterdays win against the Stars, the Blues are now tied with Dallas for 1st place in the Central, as well for the 2nd most points in the NHL. They have now won 6 in a row, including wins over both Chicago and Dallas. This all happening when the Blues have lost the most man games to injury then any other team in contention. Overall, great season.

 

But we also seem to cough up late leads in the 3rd like clockwork, play waaaay too safe when they have a lead, ,and are still the Blues, so I expect everything to go wrong come playoff time.

 

On the OTHER hand, that means we've had the lead late in all those games.

 

I don't get this team man.

The Caps can no longer set the points record

 

If they win out - they still fall one short of the Canadiens 131

Montreal had 132 (60-8-12). Detroit holds the wins record (62-13-7) but got "only" 131 points that year.

Yeah - I have fat fingers

 

I meant to say they would ONLY get to 131

Has there been a better trade in the last 5 years than the Isles sending Nino to the Wild for Clutterbuck? Best Isles trade since acquiring Butch Goering from LA for Billy Harris? Seriously Cal is exactly the type of player who you need to win games.

What can I say: my hockey mancrush on Cal is up there with Eichel, JT and Jagr at this point.

Going through the Islander trade history is a museum of horrors, though I am pretty partial to Ray Ferraro for Doug Crossman

I haven't paid a ton of attention to stats this year, but i just looked at the Red Wings point totals.

 

Thirty-six year old Henrik Zetterberg is leading the team in overall scoring. He has 12 goals.

 

Pretty sure that's bad.

First half of the season, they scored at a decent pace. Since then, every single guy not named Pavel has gone in the tank.

Time for Nordiques Nation to organise another boycott campaign (for those of you who don't remember one of the key thing that caused the WHA merger to go through was a Canada wide boycott of Molson as they owned the Habs and were blocking the merger).

 

What I have heard is that they are keeping Quebec in their back pocket in case the Carolina or another teams situation goes bad

They had an interesting disc about expansion on the radio. This would be the first post salary cap expansion draft and how would it work, with the cap and no move clauses and so on.

I remember back in the Sens expansion there was so much collusion and foolery, based around the rules of what qualified as a NHL goalie. A bunch of teams moved goalies around for "future considerations" to do What's Best For Business and the Sens wound up with just awful goaltending even by expansion standards. I'm sure that's one thing they will want to avoid ever happening again.

 

The no move clause thing is fascinating because it looks like it might bite a few teams in the ass.

It was pointed out that the nhl has never done expansion/expansion draft the same way twice.

Sometimes teams could get the 1 pick, sometimes they couldnt. And so on.

I will not let you sully the good name of Peter Sidorkewitz! He actually made the All Star team so that was actually their "strength".

What are the odds for long-term stability in Las Vegas for the NHL? I can't see it working but the novelty factor will last longer because of the constant roll-over in out of towners.

It will be stable depending on how rich the guy is owning the team.  I just dont see how far they can go with expansion at this time since Las Vegas is the only city ready to roll the dice right now
