damn, that's unfortunate, but sadly probably the right call.

Canes ppd tonight, perfect example of league inconsistency.

PHI has 3 players in protocol.

MTL had 10 and still played vs FLA because of the cross-border travel implications being unknown (IMO).

that the league is postponing games due to attendance restrictions in Canada. If they're really serious about getting in a full 82-game schedule, they should be playing these games ASAP when the teams are able to. They basically seem to be betting that Omicron will be over by February, but that's not a guarantee at this point.

Just cut off ten games at this point. Make it a 72 game season.

No idea how PIT is as successful as they are, I always liked Mike Sullivan, but my respect for him as at a new level.

If I'm starting a team today and can pick any current coach I think he's my coach.

Good move for EDM IMO....though they still need a goalie and some D.

With the Coyotes  
pjcas18 : 1/13/2022 9:53 am : link
win last night, the Canadiens are now dead last in the NHL and teams ahead of them (Coyotes) have less games played.

MTL with a -54 goal differential is second worst to Arizona (-55).

I thought it would be bad, but not this bad. the amount of injuries has been laughable, but it's not just that.

Other than Arizona they won't catch anyone. Ottawa is 2 points ahead of MTL in the standings (they are just ahead of ARI), but OTT has 6 games in hand on MTL.

I know tanking isn't really possible in the NHL, but any of the top 3 this year and next year can help turn a franchise around.

Shane Wright and Connor Bedard (though I don't love his height) would be a good start, lol.

roster revealed tonight at 5pm on ESPN2

Only leak I've heard is that Bobby Ryan did not make it. I was hoping he did after his "famous" snub in 2014. He was 26 then, now he's 34.

If you want to understand the frustration some of the players feel, that's it exemplified. You miss one Olympics for whatever reason (like Ryan in 2014), and then the NHL doesn't participate (2018) and then you miss your window.

Habs prospect Kaiden Guhle makes it - maybe take some sting out of not finishing the WJC (he was captain and Canada was a heavy favorite) and well as 2023 (yes 2023) draft prospect Connor Bedard. Johnson (CBJ), McTavish (ANA), Power (BUF), Guhle (MTL), all from WJC team (off the top of my head)

Plus a whole bunch of names from the last decade.

Staal, Richards, Heatley? These guys were all-stars a decade ago, lol.

Schneider's goal was a nice one  
Greg from LI : 1/14/2022 11:11 am : link
A quick wrister from the slot, beat him glove side. Looked good overall in his debut.

Tristan Jarry over Shesterkin on the All Star team is a joke.

such a strong top 5 this year (maybe more). Looks like a strong class.

two picks that turned into Lundkvist & Henriksson.

That trade is one reason I'm not exactly bullish on Gorton as Habs GM. Even at the time it raised eyebrows not just second guessing.

is a massive snub.

I think one player per team representative is stupid in hockey.

hopefully they get rid of that rule eventually.
Also Friedman says the Rangers might be a dark horse for Chychrun  
Greg from LI : 1/19/2022 4:37 pm : link
Which is interesting.
I do think it's cool  
pjcas18 : 1/19/2022 7:37 pm : link
that there are 30 all-stars who are 1st or 2nd time all-stars, but many of them wouldn't be all-stars if there was no rule about at least one representative per team.

and how is this just Patrice Bergeron's 3rd all-star appearance?

But Claude Giroux's 7th?

As much as I hate the Bruins, Bergeron is criminally underrated.

He's a sure fire hall-of-famer IMO, but can't make an all-star team.

Jake Allen  
pjcas18 : 1/21/2022 1:55 pm : link
out 8 weeks, there goes trade deadline deal (if there was gong to be one) for him.

- Eichel not close to returning. 1-2 months away.
- Oilers have now lost 7 in a row.

Best 1-2 combo in the league with McDavid/Draisaitl and can't win.

How much longer until McDavid demands a trade?
