Next to Ehlers you mean?

 

I really like Samson, but I made it no secret that I wanted the Sabres to draft Ehlers.  I had watched him often here in Halifax.

 

That said, maybe not #2, but I wanted Murray to trade back into the high first round to take him ... not sure how he would have managed that though.

He is on pace for 66 points but has a horrible D game. As fast as Kane but just like Kane, he needs to learn to use his linemates better.

From the "friggin league is bending over backwards to make sure the leafs make the playoffs" files, the Bruins have possession in the leaves zone when their player loses a blade and the refs blow the whistle. Blatant.

#Sabres 0-4 vs. #Bruins while #Leafs were 4-0. Major difference in standings.
 
 
Yeah, no ###### Harrington. That couldn't possibly have anything to do with your boy Byslma getting outcoached by Julien, right?

Meanwhile Julien has Montreal 8-2 in their last 10 and looking like a real threat in the East. Man, what a difference a coach can make  :rolleyes:

He has the great pleasure of playing with Crosby, but Conor Sheary has had a tremendous year. In fact, his numbers closely resemble Jack's.

Sheary: 52 GP, 21 G, 28 A, 134 shots, +25
Eichel: 53 GP, 21 G, 28 A, 218 shots, -9

21 of Jack's points on the power play, compared to just 4 of Sheary's.

He's got waaaaaay less shots than Jack. The kid is a finisher. He's a garbage picker, but he's a finisher.

Absolutely. Completely different kind of player from Jack, which is why it's pretty neat that some of their stats are so similar. He's a guy I'd love to have on Jack's wing, in fact.

A young Moulson???  I think that is about right.  When his legs go, so will his game a la Moulson.

Maybe, but Moulson is a car with 200,000 miles on it. This kid just pulled off the dealer lot.

At the very least 200,000... but in his day he was a great Tavares collector.

anybody see the hit in the Leaf game versus Columbus that Torts as all upset over...it looked like maybe a 2 minute boarding call bu nothing more...Risto's hit was not even close to anything that should have even been a 5 minute penalty never mind a hearing. strange cause the refs miss obvious calls then call stuff that is so borderline...

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.

I hate to say this, but that was a pretty routine slash.

Sidney's just even better at those than most.

In a league that hands out punishment based on injury/result rather than intent/transgression he should have received a penalty at the very least. A punch in the mouth would have been sufficient. But yeah it is routine in this league for those slashes. This one caught the finger just right. Or wrong depending how you view it.

Fairly certain he was more worried about locating the rest of his finger.

Ottawa's owner is calling for a year long Crosby suspension for it. It's more likely Method gets suspended for interfering with Crosby's stick then Sid getting anything, even with this being the second game in a row where he has been dirty and gotten nothing.....

More injury-occurrence bias. That slash probably doesn't reach the top-30 dirty things Crosby has done in his career. Hell, he probably has a dozen slewfoots alone.

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