  1. Lol at Columbus for mortgaging their future just to get blown out by Tampa.
  2. I think it’s in Washington’s best interest to go all out for a win tonight. There’s still a real possibility that NYI could win the Metro. NYI plays Florida tonight. If they win and WAS loses, then they both play each other Saturday, with the winner winning the Metro. Washington winning tonight will guarantee the division no matter what.
  3. Toronto can still get home ice in the 1st round. Granted, their remaining games are against us, TBL, and MTL. TOR has the row advantage over Boston.
  4. Ran into Erik Cole this morning at my bagel shop I go to every morning before work. Just wanted to say hi and ask what he thought our chances were. Wasn’t expecting the full analytical breakdown he gave me. It was like he was be interviewed by NHL network. He said we statistically have the hardest schedule of all teams in the hunt (I disagreed) by a small percentage. Said if we do make it, it’ll definitely be because we deserve it. He also echoed something myself and a few others have pointed out. He said he felt Columbus made too many changes, and he feels like it’s affecting the product on the ice. I think he thinks they’re the most vulnerable team.
  5. Pittsburgh is definitely the team to cheer for. As much as I would love it if they were the team to not make it in, they have too much veteran leadership and pride compared to the other teams to not make it. Our route into the playoffs is through Montreal or Columbus, likely Columbus due to Montreal having the easier schedule. Columbus not playing well, while having to go up against Pittsburgh x2, Boston x3, NYI x2, Calgary, Montreal, Nashville, and ourselves (Not to mention Edmonton who recently beat them 4-0) is our best chance to gain as much separation as possible.
  6. Think our schedule’s rough.... Look at Columbus’ next 7 games.
  7. Pittsburgh and Columbus play each other next.
  8. I’m going to laugh so hard if they end up missing the playoffs. Columbus doesn’t have an easy schedule ahead of them, and I question if they made too many moves to mess up their chemistry.
  9. Apparently they got some crazy good prospect for him.
  10. Mandy I believe Jamie Been is out with an upper body injury.
  11. You think Calgary’s going to the finals? I don’t think they’re a team built for the playoffs.
  12. Toronto doesn’t want to part with their shiny toys. There’s articles out stating that they don’t want to trade Nylander or Kapanen, let alone any of their big guns.
  13. While I would absolutely love if these scenarios happened, there is a bit of a flaw in how you get to your conclusion. When it comes to STL, they are in a similar situation as Carolina is, which is low on offense and strong on RHD. Doesn't make too much sense on their end to trade their most talented offensive player for a position of strength. The odd thing about STL is they were heavily speculated as being interested in Hamilton during the offseason, but probably not a the cost of Tarasenko. As far as Duchene, I would even add to the package you offered to get him, if it were a guarantee that he extends here. It is heavily rumored that he wants to test free agency. He knows he's going to be the most sought-after UFA, and he could likely sign a bigger contract on July 1 than any offer currently being thrown at him. We would turn into, well the Ottawa Senators if we were to trade a lottery pick for a guy that won't sign. This franchise is not in a position to make that kind of a gamble.
  14. I’ve seen seen speculation STL had interest in Hamilton before we acquired him. They could’ve initially asked for Hamilton, then tried to switch to Slavin, and we said nah.
