  1. I am guessing the league will suspend the rest of the season and start back up with playoffs in a few weeks. Where the teams stand right now is where the playoffs will start. (IMHO of course!)
  2. Not sure about that. In 1919, the Spanish Flu caused the league to shut down and no one was awarded the cup.
  3. I am not up on all contracts and such so asking, isn't Ned signed to a NHL contract next year? I thought I read it was a two-year this year and NHL next. Thanks!!
  4. If we could just have the same team on the ice that we had against PIT, there should be no question. Problem is, our consistence is not that good. Keys to the game? 1). Play our game 2). Don't chase 3). Block out the goalie.
  5. My thoughts for tonight's game: 1). Get back to basics: Smart passes, minimized passing, more shooting 2). Mix it up: Carry puck in more, dump less, hit more 3). Block the goalie: Get people in front of the goalie and block his view. Simplicity and getting back to basic's is a must right now. We are trying too many fancy things. Play some good ole hockey and let everyone know we are pushing hard. (As always, just my opinion!)...GO CANES!
  6. Can we please stop playing the boards so much?! We dump in and don't hit. Then we wrap it around and around and around. All the other team needs to do is stand against the boards and wait. Pucks jumping sticks, players running into each other, out of position... Time to switch up the style some if we are going to continue playing. At one point Skjei was looking around like, "where am I supposed to be?" Love ya', Roddy but we need more than one style! Maybe we should study films a little more to find their weakness?
  7. Glad to see that. I think he is more deserving tonight.
  8. First, we don't have Zamboni's...we have Olympia's! (LOL) Secondly, who do you think will be in net for us tonight? (and no, not Ayers!) Thanks!
  9. Yeah, I just saw the replay of that on YouTube. It was not Dzingle's fault though. Trocheck's skate got locked in the ice.
  10. Time will tell but not sure we bettered ourselves. Just hope Trocheck is healthy and physical..which is what we need more of!
  11. Looking around at many different websites, it seems we are being tied to a lot of defensive players come trade deadline. I would think forwards or centers would be more what we need with the defense we have...other than Gardiner. Thoughts? Also, I read that the Blackhawks will mostly likely be selling a goalie. Thoughts on that one too? Thanks everyone! Just getting the feel of what everyone thinks!
  12. Before we talk too much about Faulk going, can we get rid of Murphy first? He's coming up soon as a UFA but this is Dahlbecks contract year. Let's drop Murphy, sign Dahlbeck, and then talk about what's left (IMO). Dahlbeck is a big body and will move people around. He still needs some experience but beats the socks off of Murphy!
  13. I feel Skinner is not safe today and that an injury was said to get him off the radar. We will know by 3pm but I think Skinner might be traded today. (Just a personal feeling!)
  14. Murphy is not a NHL'er, just like Boychuk wasn't/isn't. We need to shed this guy and pick up a hard hitting D-man. We have puck movers in Faulk, Hanifin, Slavin and even Pesce. Now we need some "stay at home" D-man that will knock anyone out of our goalies way. Murphy is not that guy at 5'11" and 185lbs. He gets pushed around more than anything. We need someone equal to Byfuglien or Burns to handle the guys that target or young stars but can play too. (my wishlist).
