That's some impressive chirping from a team's owner -- calling out the league's best player as a dirty whiner.

Ironically that's still nicer than what he said about his own team's best player

He has been outspoken that he will not let Karlsson play in the Olympics. Normally, this is due to injury concerns. But with him? His quote is, paraphrased, that he's concerned with injuries and, plus, he's Canadian and Karlsson is Swedish; if Karlsson was Canadian, he might let him play, but why would he help beat his own country / team?

 

Yeah, piss off the guy that should be in your rafters some day.

When Buff and Morrissey got hurt in the third last night, we had our top 7 out.

Buff Morrissey Trouba Enstrom Myers Postma and Chiarot.

Our starting D tonight could be scary.

Why didn't Methot hit him square between the eyes when he turned around after him@!#@@ I swear, if he did that to me and then tried to blow it off like nothing happened, it wouldn't have been pretty. Yet he continues to get away with it. Perhaps somebody needs to give him another concussion to help put things in perspective a little bit. 
 


Just as ROR should have gone after him after taking a stick to the beanbag. If someone sticked me there, I woulda broke my stick over his face. Crosby is a scumbag plain amd simple. Mario played with class for Pittsburgh, Cindy not so much. Some team needs to bring up an AHL goon to take him out before the playoffs start.

Absolutely. It would probably net a suspension, but I bet it would certainly get the beanbag piñata issues out in the open.

So now Crosby's agent is saying that the Sens owner should be fined for his negative comments against Crosby.

Expect the NHL to investigate and fine Melnyk now for those disparaging and hurtful comments. Those comments probably hurt like cutting a finger off.....

There is no 2018 draft thread yet. Check out Rasmus Dahlin: https://twitter.com/...2053319&page=14

 

Arguably better than Karlsson at the same age. Made a WJC appearance at 16 years old, playing in the SHL at 16 years old. 

 

Between him and Andrei Svechnikov, next year's draft is back to being insane. 

 

Also, this goal makes him the youngest player to ever score a goal in a playoff game in the SHL.

Trouba came back for last night's game and played almost half the game. I like the way our team plays when we have a lot of D out!!!! The forwards are helping out a lot more and the D are playing much more conservative.

That dog looks a lot like my first Golden. The white face and the color and curl of their fur.

I saw the replays.  Anthanasiou (sp) went in all alone from the side and came across the slot.  He was checked from behind just as he shot, and in getting checked put a shoulder to Lack's head.  They took him out immobilized on a backboard but he was released from the hospital last night.

And I hate it when defensive players do stuff like this. Sometimes you just have to let the goalie make the save and bail you out. Trying to get a piece of a guy who is already around you and subsequently putting him into your own goalie is just so damn careless. Guys on our team have done that to Lehner a few times this year. Don't push players into your own goalie!

I don't see how those facts are relevant - points scored by Jagr before I was born have no bearing on his performance next year at ages 45-46.

 

We're already slow as ######. He's on a beach right now. He's not coming here and we don't need him

Don't push players into your own goalie! 

 

The replay will make you even madder then.  Athanasiou picked up the puck near boards at the blue line, then swooped across the slot, moving more east-west than north-south by the time he got to the goalie.  The defenseman, skating straight down the middle of the ice, got to Athanasiou just as he got to the crease.  Athanasiou's path would have took him close to, but not into, Lack; that is, until he was hit from behind into Lack.  Considering the relative speeds of Athanasiou and the D-man, that was a LOT of momentum transferred into the mostly stationary Lack.


And the defensive play was for naught anyway since Athanasiou scored.
