I've been waiting for this thread to start!!

Got my yahoo fantasy keeper league draft tomorrow night with ribs and beer ready to go!

My sens are going to be abysmal this year. Maybe I'll bet against them for 82 games and make some money.

#12 1 year ago

Tickets to a sens game in Arizona should only cost you 6$ USD and you can get a hot dog and beer included with the price!

#15 1 year ago

Picks for the finals

Sharks and Lightning.

Hopefully my predictions fare better than last year lol

Boston's getting spanked on opening night!!

Quoted from Deaconblooze:

Let's go Blues!!
It really stinks to be a hockey fan in WI. The NHL package is expensive, and blocks any "in-market" games (that I frustratingly can't even watch!).

Quoted from rollitover:

Fleury has been yanked before,
and he'll get yanked again.
Now that I think about it, I wonder who holds the record for most "yanks" in a career? Do they even keep track? Interesting thought.

Not sure which goalie has been pulled the most in their NHL career......but Andre "Red light" Racicot comes to mind.

#41 1 year ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

Thought his name was Andre? Anyway, kudos to Haminic for sticking up for a rookie on your team (Dube) of the Flames that took a borderline hit from Gudbrunson (canucks) on Wednesday nite..he broke his jaw after fighting a bigger man in Guds..I can respect a player for always backing up a teammate

Yes....andre is correct. Thanks for the correction

#47 1 year ago
Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

Tavares and Matthews have been red hot to start the year! I'm not a leafs fan, but I have a few of them in my fantasy hockey pools, so they are exciting to follow.
I feel Morgan Rielly is being a bit overlooked though, as he's never usually mentioned along with Tavares and Mathews. Rielly has 10 points in 4 games, with quite a few being power play points. I feel like he's set for a monster year too.

I bet you William Nylander isn't pleased with the Leafs hot start, lol

Gretzky unfortunately loved to play at maple leaf gardens.

I remember seeing Gretzky get robbed by Peter Ing during a penalty shot at Maple Leaf Gardens.

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Get back in a fantasy league has made me follow much more games around besides my Pens

That's what I love about hockey pools!! My yahoo keeper league pool is a ton of fun and we regularly trash talk each other.

My team name: In The Fast Laine

#73 1 year ago
Quoted from Jackontherocks:

We have a trash talk text message for us on our phones it stacks up with a ton of nonsense

I'm assuming you use yahoo as well?

The only reason I ditched my flip phone for a smart phone was for the fantasy hockey pool, lol

Maple leaf gardens is now a supermarket?!?!? What the heck!!

So found myself flipping to the flames/Av’s game last nite..Av’s up 4-1 after 2 periods..the boys from cow town came back w 5 straight!! Wtf...not a fan of either team, but to score 5 in the 3rd? Damn...

She was a barn burner after the 1st period that's for sure!!

#100 1 year ago
Quoted from TheHueManatee:

She was a barn burner after the 1st period that's for sure!!

Another high scoring game with Colorado/Vancouver tonight

- 7 goals in the second period
- 4 goals in the third period

Don't step away from the TV too long to grab a beer!

6-6 going into OT

#101 1 year ago

Sabres beat Ottawa 9-2 this afternoon. You can't argue scoring isn't up in the NHL!

#103 1 year ago
Quoted from rollitover:

Or goaltending is down?

Well I know there have been some goalies complaining about some of the equipment changes they have had to endure.

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/impact-smaller-nhl-goalie-equipment-scoring/

Smaller goalie equipment may help with the high scoring. Combine that with bad goaltending, which we've seen.....and it's no wonder the goals are up!

5 SENS players sharing an uber ride didn't realize they were being recorded as they were trashing the coaching staff.

I've always liked Hitchcock. He's got sharp elbows

Laine with 5 goals last night. That's 3 hat tricks for the month of November. Like a boss!!

#150 1 year ago
Quoted from rollitover:

Spectacular!
A lot of players
don't get 5 in a month.

And by scoring 5 goals he made some dude in Manitoba a millionaire!! (50K a year for 20 years)

Nick Kypreos had a good take on the Flyer's and how their hockey culture has changed. I think he made some good points.

Hey Bacon, your boy Leivo for traded to the Canucks!

It's all Nylander fault lol

#173 1 year ago

Leivo just scored a goal for the Couv!!!

I think he will do better in Vancouver

#174 1 year ago

Looks like the Calgary vs Columbus game had 5 field goals lol

#177 1 year ago
Quoted from newovad:

I hated when Dallas had to play in the Pacific. Those 9:30 Central start times were the worst.

I used to live in Atlantic Canada and they we're an hour behind Eastern time. The 7:30pm west coast games would only start at 11:30pm AST!! They would wrap up around 2am

#179 1 year ago

Fucking karma strikes Tom Wilson!!

Thank you Ryan Reaves!

** The League just announced there will be no discipline for the hit

#182 1 year ago
Quoted from meSz:

the announcer saying it was blind side hit ..... he's partially right .... it was a hit to his side!

Wilson admiring his pass. Shoulder to shoulder....clean hit.

I don't take pleasure in guys getting hurt.....but it's nice to see a cheap shot artist get put in his place.

#184 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Body shot putting him down like that?.

I think his head hitting the ice is what put him down. Wilson will make sure his chin strap is tightened next game.

Looks like things in Dallas are getting heated between the Stars CEO and Benn/Seguin. Airing some dirty laundry like this in public won't bode well.

https://globalnews.ca/news/4800937/dallas-stars-jim-lites-jamie-benn-tyler-seguin/

Let the trade talks begin!!

#207 1 year ago

The All Star competition used to be fun and interesting to watch. Now it sucks

The all star game has always sucked.

The only All Star weekend I watched in the last 10+ years was when John Scott was selected. (I just wanted to see the disgusted look on Gary Bettman's stupid face)

#208 1 year ago

Ovechkin is skipping the all Star game and will serve a one game suspension for it. I know it's probably to take a break with his family and rest....but it's a nice slap in the face to the NHL.

#209 1 year ago

The best thing about the Flyer's this year is Gritty!

https://twitter.com/GrittyNHL/status/1082453698696097792?s=09

#218 1 year ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

I’m hoping that my young stud rookie Elias Pattersson is healthy enough to make it. Some of these ‘fans’ in the Couve are pissed w the bs non call and what these refs are doing/not doing to protect these stars..he got tangled up w Kotkaniemi of the habs and fell awkwardly: mild sprain to his knee. It happens, but to want blood and wish bad things on Kotkaniemi..c’mon, really? It’d be cool to see another nuck win mvp 2 years in a row. Boeser is pretty good, and showed everyone last year at Tampa..

Yea that was nothing but a fluke accident. Kotkanniemi even skated over to check on Petterson after the fact.

Big news of the night....

Lucic finally scored a goal in North America this season!!

#222 1 year ago
Quoted from Malenko:

Now I keep reading that the Flyers are shopping Wayne Simmonds around =(
That'd probably be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

That's why I grabbed him in my hockey pool.

#223 1 year ago
Quoted from meSz:

I wounldnt mind having Simmonds on the Penguins!

Doubt that'll happen since they are division rivals.

#229 1 year ago
Quoted from Spinape:

Lucic with 2 last night! Possible All Star candidate

1.5 million a goal this season

#237 1 year ago
Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

Can anyone stop Tampa?
Jake Gardiner lustfuly benched and booed all period. The latest Larry Murphy who will Win 2 cups somewhere else. Nylander is next..1 goal in 19 games. I felt embarrassed for Jake.

Nylander deserves the boos.

Leaf nation loves to scapegoat. Ask kessel and phaneuf

#240 1 year ago

Fun fact: William Nylander and Jaroslav Halak have the same amount of points this season.

#244 12 months ago

Oilers GM is blowing things up before getting canned.

He signed Koskinen to 4.5 mil annually and bought out Spooner (who they just traded for just over a month ago).

Oiler fans in the city are losing their minds!!!

#248 12 months ago

correction: Spooner was placed on waivers. So was Rattie

#250 12 months ago
Quoted from Spinape:

Spooner I get, but why Rattie?

I don't get Spooner because they traded for him. Why did they even bother make the trade?

What a....

giphy.gif
#251 12 months ago
Quoted from Spinape:

Spooner I get, but why Rattie?

Rattie I think got waivered because he didn't perform like he did with McDavid in the pre-season.

#255 12 months ago
Quoted from Spinape:

This should have happened a long time ago! I would hope no other team hires that man

I still have no clue how a GM that was going to be fired was allowed to sign a rookie goalie to 4.5 AAV.

For context....this is what the Oilers roster looked like 3 years ago.

Nothing will change until the likes of Nicholson, Gretzky(s), Lowe, McTavish etc....are gone.

Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

What a great night of hockey! The Couv rolled over the Avs on CBC’s second game. Hope Vancouver makes the playoffs

They just might....? I guess Edler won't be trade bait after all

#272 11 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

Edler has said many times that he luvs the Couv..but will he waive his NTC? The boys played well in Denver last nite..part of me would like to see the boys make the playoffs, but they won’t do shit..another good draft pick is what this club needs

I thought I recall hearing rumblings earlier on that they wouldn't object to using him as trade bait for a team looking for a rental and then Edler would return to Vancouver for next season.

But what's more important right now? Making the playoffs or building for the future?

I tend to agree with you hwyhed. Trade him to a contender, get some picks and then get him back next season.

#275 11 months ago

I don't know what's worse....

a) Edmonton being 3 points out of a playoff spot

b) Edmonton being 3 points away from being in last place

The Western conference is a dumpster fire

Hurricanes post game celebrations. Wow....this garbage is cringe worthy.


#290 11 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

What are they celebrating? Just being outside of the playoffs..or that they still have a franchise in Raleigh?! Still waiting to see what happens on the trade deadline upcoming..who’s gonna be sellers/buyers..

I really hope they make the playoffs. I'd love to see Brad Marchand (or other pest) pull a similar styled celebration during a 1st round matchup with the Hurricanes in their own barn.

#293 11 months ago
Quoted from Malenko:

Naw, fuck that big nosed piece of garbage

Oh he's a goof....dont get me wrong. But he would be the type to do something like that.

Does everyone forget Lindholm mocking the Carolina fans after Calgary beat them?

This shit will carry into the playoffs and blow up in Carolina's face. Hockey God's never forget

#296 11 months ago
Quoted from mymalibu:

I hear ya Hue and hope that the mocking by Lindholm does not come back to haunt the flames....

He was being booed by the fans all night everytime he touched the puck. (He played for the Canes last year)

I think him celebrating after the win was just to rub salt into the wound of the fans and show them their celebrations are ridiculous. And I don't blame him one bit!

#339 11 months ago

Dallas trade their 2nd and 3rd for Zuccarello.

First game he plays for them he breaks his arm. Out 4-6 weeks

#343 11 months ago

The twitterverse is speculating the Senators are holding things up by asking too much for Stone.

I think that's why the Jets grabbed Hayes. They gave up on a deal with the Sens

#344 11 months ago
Quoted from Malenko:

I'm pretty shocked at the Nyquiest deal. I'm also hoping Mark Stone fills the void a team wants for Simmonds, so he can stay a Flyer. I met him at a Flyer's charity even and he was awesome.

Rumour is Flyer's want a first rounder for simmonds. Teams losing interest....

#347 11 months ago

Stone to Vegas. Waiting for NHL approval

#349 11 months ago

Simmonds to Nashville!

#351 11 months ago

edit: Johanssen to Boston!

Hartman and 2020 4th rounder for Simmonds. (Turns into a 3rd if Nashville makes it past the first round of the playoffs)

#359 11 months ago
Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

I think you meant Marcus Johansson from New Jersey to Boston for a 2nd and 4th. Johanssen would’ve been rad but no way Nashville parts with him. Johansson should provide nice wing depth for Boston at a reasonable price.

I sure am off this week.

Thanks for the correction

#360 11 months ago
Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

#380 10 months ago
Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

More bad news in ottawa...new arena spot kiboshed and just fired guy Boucher this after pierre dorion talking out the other side of his mouth last week. Sounds like decision came from Eugene melnyk. Marc crawford announced as replacent...for now according to Dorion...but could be permanent. Nice thing to say and what top notch coach would want to go to ottawa ? Low times for hockey in this nation's capital

Ottawa won't have an NHL team in 5 years time from now. They'll relocate.

#385 10 months ago
Quoted from Malenko:

They can move to Seattle and take up the SuperSonics moniker.

Seattle has already been officially announced as an "expansion" team with its own group of owners.

Ottawa will relocate...mark my words. To where is the billion dollar question.

#388 10 months ago
Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

Rabid fans In woodbridge vaughan

GTA expansion will never happen. MLS won't allow competition so close to home. Heck.....even Hamilton is deemed "too close" for MLS.

The fans are rabid though....ill give you that

Quoted from hwyhed:

Why there isn’t a team in Quebec, I dunno..yet there’s still teams in untraditional markets w shitty attendance #’s..Florida and Phoenix err Glendale.

Quebec city would make a lot of sense. They have a gorgeous barn that only has a junior team playing out of it. My friend was there last week for a hockey tournament for his kids. They had 8,000 - 10,000 people show up to watch peewee kids play.

What was Tortella thinking?

Not sure! But Tort's in on another level when it comes to coaching. I'm sure it's all part of his diabolical plan to motivate his team to get into the playoffs.

Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

Carolina might have the toughest remaining schedule....

Let's see if they can "surge" their way into the playoffs.

#414 10 months ago

Arizona is making a solid push for the playoffs. Not bad considering they are a pretty banged up team right now.

Quoted from TheHueManatee:

Tort's was playing mind games with Boston last night. Giving them an uncalled power play and subsequent power play goal out of the goodness of his heart. lol

Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

Andersen has pretty much single handedly killed my fantasy playoffs. Pulled in two games in a row now. Doesn’t help that I also lost letang, Pasternak and tarasenko to injuries as well.

A guy in my fantasy pool is freaking out. He also owns Letang/Tarasenko/Anderson/Bfyuglien.

Bad week for plenty of fantasy owners.

#454 10 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

Watched the Oilers/Knights game..... Oilers gave up 6 goals with 3 of them being a result of turnovers and 2 odd man breaks...... they just shoot themselves in the foot. It's like watching the Penguins!

At the end of the season most teams are battling hard to get that playoff spot.

At the end of the season the Oilers battle hard to get that #1 draft pick.

#457 10 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

This is what the Penguins did in the early 2000s hence they got Crosby, Malkin, Fleury, Staal, (gulp) LeTank. It worked out well for the Pens (3 Cups). So hang in there as the Oilers are a few #1s away!

The same formula doesn't seem to be working for the Oilers whatsoever!!

List of recent first rounds picks...

Taylor Hall (2010) *traded for nothing
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (2011)
Nail Yakupov (2012) *traded for nothing. Now in KHL
Connor McDavid (2015)

Doesn't really faze me as I am not an Oilers fan. Just a guy who enjoys watching the "good ol' boys club" in Oiler management fail over and over. It's almost poetic!

#461 10 months ago

Malkin is out and listed week-to-week.

#467 10 months ago
Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

A chance babs will be toast if the Leafs whimper out of the playoffs. I'm told the players don't like him but he's won cups and so has tortz and Kernan, probably the hardest of all asses

It's because Babcock doesn't coddle his millennial players. I can see some clashing between him and Dubbas behind the scenes. Not all is right is Toronto and the facade is slowly beginning to melt away. In a few years it's going to look like the 2000's all over again.

Quoted from meSz:

As for the Oilers ..... I feel the Office is their issue. They let some good talent go for little in return. I retract my statement for them

That's exactly it!

Nicholson stated at the ticket season holders meeting two days that getting a top 2 defenceman is a priority. One of the season ticket holders quipped "that's what trading Taylor Hall should have got us." lol

#470 10 months ago
Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

Did you guys hear about the press conference oilers ceo bob Nicholson had? He basically said that the reason they missed the playoffs was Toby reider. He actually said that if reider has scored 10-12 goals, they’d have made the playoffs.
So not only did they throw a third liner under the bus for the whole season, they basically said they’re not worried about changing anything for next year. Minus reider of course

Hue setup the hockey pool again?
Unclaimed prize from last year! [quoted image]

I finished 1st in my pool for the regular season.

Pavelski, karlsson and fleury injuries have crippled me for the playoffs and I'm duking it out for a 3rd place finish now. Doesn't look good as I'll most likely end up being the bubble boy finishing in 4th place and outta the money

Oh thehuemanatee!!

It's kinda funny that John Tavares flees the Islanders for the Leafs in order to play for his childhood team and try to win a cup.

Only for the Islanders to advance to round 2 of the playoffs the following year while the Leafs get bounced in the first round.

I'm looking forward to UrinatingTree's youtube video on the Leafs losing game 7, lol. Should be epic.

#640 9 months ago
Quoted from drfrightner:

That was the WORST very very very WORST thing I've ever seen in Hockey. A five minute major for a stick check because one of the Shark players told the ref he got hit in the face. NO WAY! Vegas totally got robbed.

If that's the worst thing you've seen in hockey than you haven't watched much hockey, lol

#643 9 months ago
Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

Anyone want to take bets on where the leafs go from here now? I think its safe to say that Kadri and Gardiner are gone, and probably one or two other guys due to the pending cap crunch. I think Babcock is still safe (for now), but only due to his overall career accomplishments. He really seemed to have trouble making proper matchups to the bruins lines.

They have handicapped themselves cap-wise with the contracts given out by Dubbas. And that's not even counting Marner getting signed to big bucks in the off-season.

I said it a few months ago in an earlier post but this year was their shot. The window is now closed until the huge contracts get moved elsewhere.

I think Babcock and Dubbas don't see eye to eye and Babcock will be shown the door after next year when they get eliminated in the first round again. Once Babcock gets shown the door the whole thing will unravel.

Still tied up after the 1st OT period.

Shots are 53 to 26 in favor of St. Louis. And that's considering Dallas blocking almost 30 shots!!

I’m taking the Blues. Would like to see the Canes upset Boston but not sure they can pull it off.

I like the Blues team and hope they win but have a feeling San Jose will beat them and win the cup. All because Ron Burgundy made fun of them this year.

All that surge nonsense is a joke and their "fanbase" proved that tonite. #karma

Now we just need Boston to get swept in the finals

#815 8 months ago
Quoted from SewerUrchin:

For the Blues , it would be an incredible storyline. We last made it to the finals in 1970 and swept by Boston.
Not sure how this last fiasco will effect them the rest of this series , though.

It must be real tough being a Blues fan.

Could this year be the year?
