the number 1 overall draft pick Austen Matthews has made history by scoring 4 goals in his first ever NHL game unfortunately the rest of his team mates didn't show up and the Maple Leafs lost the game 5/4 in O/T .

EA sports has predicted that the Canucks will finish the season dead last with only 63 points, looks like its going to be the 1970's all over again

lets hope they get a decent draft pick then

wasnt lookin to good when the 'nucks first goal of the new season was into their own net on a delayed penalty call with the goalie on the bench. they managed to win in a shoot out 2-1

then again last night they spotted the hurricanes a 3 goal lead before coming from behind again in the 3rd to win 4-3 in o/t

they managed this stunt only 3 times all last season

50th anniversary year for the Blues.
Tried and failed to get Winter Classic tickets yesterday. Turns out only around 100 were for sale for the general public. That's after Cardinal, Blues, and Blackhawk season ticket holders got there hands on them.

I havent watched an entire period yet. Did manage a couple of over times tho.
The Canuckleheads are on a downward trend and cant be bothered to waste 3 hours on them
so I have officially fallen of the bandwagon

I'm not a watcher either. I mostly just check if they win. Every time I turned it on last night they gave up a goal so I gave up.

2017/18 season is almost done and I have not watched a single game the Sedin twins are retiring and
I don’t recognize anyone on the team anymore
I guess I’m officially a non fan

Final standings for my Fantasy Hockey teams this year.
Four 1st place teams
One 2nd place team
One 3rd place team.
Not too shabby.

The playoffs start today. Anybody think Nashville can actually pull it off this year? Looks like they should breeze through the first two rounds at least.

Picking the Pens for the threepeat, eh? Bold. Maybe not as bold as picking San Jose to go that deep, though.

And yeah, you did. In how many of those leagues did you own Rinne? 987

I didn't own Rinne in any of them. I got lucky with my goalies. I picked up the Winnipeg and Tampa goalies when Talbot and Holtby were sucking.

...And the Pens threepeat quest ends. San Jose is done too.

Nice job picking Tampa though JC. I got the Preds in game 7, but Winnipeg could still keep your bracket from being totally shot if they can win another five games.

In the 12 total playoff series between the Penguins and the Capitals, this was only the second time the Caps eliminated the Pens. This is also only the third appearance by the Caps in the conference finals. Even my lowly Sabres have been there more times. Kinda makes me want to root for them... kinda.

This upcoming final four, regardless if Nashville or Winnipeg takes the last slot, is going to be the most exciting semi final in recent memory. Each team has a great story.

Yeah, after getting every prediction correct in round 1, I took a beating in this round. Sigh.

Didn't know I'd be needing a defibrillator for the Finals. Can hockey scoreboards account for double-digit team scores? scared

They tape a broken piece of hockey stick in front of the other number, so hockey scoreboards go up to 19. :p

At this point it doesn't look good for the Caps, Maturin. Sorry to say, but what real chance do they have against a franchise with such a rich historical tradition of winning? I mean, the Knights have quite literally NEVER lost a playoff series!

And with such a classy opening ceremony too. It was like watching a medieval tapestry coming medievally to life, plus sequins.

Yes, it's pretty much over for the Caps, now that there are only up to six more games to play. But I'm always glad to root for brash young upstarts over tradition-bound old fossils, so Go Caps.

For that matter, the Golden Knights have only lost a total of 3 playoff games, EVER!

The Caps can still pull it out. They were down 0-2 against Columbus ( I know Vegas isn't Columbus) and they came back to win the next 4 games.

I'm so conflicted about who to root for. I want both these teams to win. I'd be rooting for either team were they playing against anyone else, except the Sabres.

GO SABRES!

As I said, if the GKs win it'll be the sports event of the year. Still the case. Ironic that the Caps finally reach the SC finals and smack right into this phenomenon. Oh well.

Ty, Big John. :) Total hats off to Vegas. What a season.

But getting to see Ovechkin's pure joy at the end of the game and then when he hoisted the Stanley Cup for the first time ... very happy for the Capitals

In May of 2017, after the Caps were yet again eliminated by the Pens, I made the following post on facebook and a friend responded. I'll post it right now.

Quote :
Who would you trade to get Alexander Ovechkin? Of course The Washington Capitals are going to want a lot. So the trade I'd settle for is:

From Washingtn to Buffalo - Ovechkin, Orlov

From Buffalo to Washington - Kane, Reinhart, Baptiste, Fasching 2017 1st Round Draft Pick


Richard No, but I'd consider Reinhart for Noah Hanifin.

John Youwouldn't try to get Ovi at all?

Richard Not with that deal.

John Obviously. But the question is Who would you trade to get Alexander Ovechkin?

Richard Why would I trade for him? He's not leading them to the Cup. Too much. If Ovie can't lead that team to the cup he won't lead the Sabres there.

John Not necessarily. Best player he's ever had to play with is Backstrom, who has never impressed me He's solid but without Ovie I don't think he'd be an elite talent. Think of Ovie on a line with Eichel, Ovie, and OReilly.

John  It's a team game my friend. Most Cup winners have multiple all stars on their team.

Richard Washington is built to win the Cup this year. If Ovie can't win with a team this deep he won't with a team thinned by trading for him. The Sabres need much more on D and more scoring depth.

John So the best you got is Reinhart for Hanifin? Both so young and unproven. It's a gamble which probably wouldn't be a game changer.

Anyway, this thread is about what you'd do to get Ovi,. You took a pass on it and I respect (and disagree with lol) your opinion.

Richard No, I wouldn't trade for him. Clear and simple.

John Yes, Rich. I understand how you feel.

Richard I wasn't sure, you said I took a pass on trying to put a trade together for Ovie. I wouldn't trade for him at all.

Today, over a year later, I posted the following.

Quote :
John What were you saying about how Ovie can't lead that team to the cup?

The Caps are doing a Homeric odyssey with the Cup that has included swimming in a fountain and getting drunken tattoos. I have been very supportive.

Then I looked up who Lord Stanley was.

Hockey is now dead to me.

It has to do with Thomas Stanley *1st* Earl of Derby, his horrible wife, Margaret Beaufort, and her son, Henry the Even More Horrible VII. I was having a very pleasant time at the pub drinking Guinness and discussing the Caps and then we looked up Lord Stanley and then things went downhill, just like history did thanks to Lord Stanley Cup's 16x great-grandpa.

And I feel bad if I ruined Canada Day but the Stanleys ruined everything else. You probably know my friends Jane and John, who are from Canada and play recreational hockey here in States. I don't understand why they didn't tell me about Stanleygeddon since John's dad was a Ricardian too.

I also feel bad about Justin Trudeau, who is very handsome. The parade is in a few hours but I'm not going because you know what? No. Someone has to draw the line, plus I have my piano lesson.

LOL poor ExDel can't be referred to the old R3 thread for perspective.

Oh, poor all of us. That thread was very nearly too much fun.

Had I known what was going to happen, I would have grabbed that thread as we were fleeing.

It's not a Netflix historical, ExDel; it's the actual moment when everything went terribly wrong. We're all still trying to put the pieces back together.

Alex Ovechkin's speech at the parade today was the stuff of legend. Congrats again to him and the Caps for winning the RIII Cup.
