Just got back from the Columbus Blue Jackets vs. The Colorado Avalanche game.

That was saddddd.

I'm glad I don't enjoy either team.

5-0 Avalanche.

Kings beat Chicago! There is still a chance for them to be in the playoffs!

I would've liked their chances better if LA got Rick Nash instead of Carter, but considering that Columbus beat them without Carter, I guess they made the right decision after all,{winning 4 out of their last 6 games} or rather just delayed the inevitable that Nash will be gone after the season.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

The one reason that Nash wasn't traded and Carter was instead, I think you will find is cap space. Nash is a massive hit at $6m and Carter is substantially less than that, for a shorter term.

I'm not so sure that Nash will be gone after the season, because the problem still remains. Sure, it's one season less for the contract, but Columbus need it off their books, badly and I'm not sure that Nash can justify that kind of spend from any NHL franchise at the moment.

I think the difference is more that Columbus actually wanted to get rid of Carter. They were unsatisfied with his attitude/performance and he never wanted to be there in the first place. Moving him made sense for both sides. Nash is different; he is their franchise. Trading your captain, best player, fan favourite and generally the only bright spot your franchise has ever known, is a completely different type of deal. Columbus never wanted to get rid of him, (Nash requested a trade), and based upon what they were asking for in return, I doubt they ever seriously expected anyone to bite.

Fair point. I think that there needs to be some form of major shake-up in Columbus and they are hoping for some help in the new CBA that's beeing mooted at the moment, to get out of the basement. Either that, or get someone good in the next few drafts, like Edmonton. Oh, wait.

Hold your horses, you've not won anything yet. We've still got 2 weeks to go and you could finish 4th in your division, still outside, looking in. There's any three of six teams can get in the playoffs (LA; Dallas; Phoenix; San Jose; Colorado and Calgary) and they're all within 3 points of one another.

Come back next week, maybe you've managed to get up there and stay there by then :P

So I'm living down in South America right now. I've already been going through hockey withdrawal but there is no way I can miss the playoffs with the Rangers playing so well this year.

Can anybody recommend a good site for watching games free? The problem I've always had is that poor video quality makes it nearly impossible to see the puck on a lot of streaming sports sites. Looking for a site with good video quality if anyone knows of one. Thanks.

Well, I think that the playoffs are officially slipping from the grasp of the Avs now. Still, we've built a platform for next year. A healthy Duchene and Landeskog will certainly help this franchise go far, as will a more settled Semyon Varlamov, who could backstop us nicely.

I'd love to see playoff action, but with the amount of games that we've played and the way everyone around us is playing, we're about to hit the buffers, as everyone else is getting into playoff mode.

You're still in the same division as the team that has been dominant for the past and has been the only ones in the division to make the playoffs. Still, always another year

After being shut out by L.A Calgary's chances of making the playoffs are looking tight. I was hoping the Flames and the Jets would both make it in.

Again, see the previous post, being in the same division with the Vancouver Canucks who have held the Northwest Division title for the past 4 years means that it's really hard for the other teams in that division to make it. That and the other western conference teams have been playing better. Unless you're the BlueJackets.

Bump?

So who do you think has the best chance of winning the cup this year? The Sharks are looking pretty good. I would love to say the Flames (since I'm a fan) but even the Leafs have a better chance right now. Hopefully Iggy wakes up soon.

It's far too early to make these sort of decisions - there will be lots of injuries before then and teams can and will change on a seemingly daily basis.

Sure, Tarasenko, the Blues rookie looks good for the Calder at present, but hockey players blow hot and cold, so let's see it play out a little more, first.

I'll be giving verdicts on who has chances, when we're down to 16 teams with a shot at the cup (and I'll probably be wrong)

The Sharks might actually get it done this year since they have less games to choke away and might find themselves in top form come the playoffs for once.

Yep, the short season will definitely be an advantage for some teams, and also hurt some, mainly the teams that take awhile to get the natural flow of the game going. But yeah, great to see Marleau still has his game. Hopefully Iginla shows some more energy tonight against Chicago. It's hockey night!

What no-one gives a shit about the playoffs? Lame.

Here's my predictions:

East
Pittsburgh over New York Islanders in 5
Montreal over Ottawa in 6
Washington over New York Rangers in 5
Boston over Toronto in 4 (Yeah, I know, but I'm being honest)

West
Chicago over Minnesota in 6
Detroit over Anaheim in 7
San Jose over Vancouver in 6 (So tempted to change this to sweep now)
Los Angeles over Saint Louis in 5

So I've already got two scores wrong, but I have a shot at the results in them all still...

Plus the Avs get the #1 draft pick, so they had better draft Seth Jones, as we really do need defencemen!

I've never seen such a terrible ref job than tonight in these playoffs. The Senators are getting blowjob after blowjob from the refs. These refs are just letting everything through for these guys. So many cases of obstruction, bad calls and that fucking first goal by the sens in the third period... give me a fucking break!

The Senators didn't win any of these games fair. They should have went out in 4, or MAXIMUM in 5 but instead they are leading the serie 3-1. Fuck that shit...

Tonight's game between the Penguins and the Senators was great! The Penguins were in control all game long, too bad they couldn't keep their advantage and score the winning goal in overtime. I'll watch the next matches for sure :)

Wow, the season is going on and NO ONE has posted here. I'm admittedly a casual fan (I follow Hurricanes hockey pretty passionatly, but when it comes to the rest of the league I'm usually out of the loop... Pissed off over the Penguines game BTW) so... Think this thing can get rolling again? XD

Flyers played bad in game 1 near the end with way too many penalties. Not to mention the fact that the Refs ignored all the hooking and tripping the New York Rangers were doing. Refs helping to decide the outcome of hockey games. With that said, the Flyers should have found a way to win even if the Refs are helping out New York.

A play on the Bruins playing like a dirty thug. He should be suspended for this shit. Don't know what the Red Wings player did to deserve a cheap shot like that. If the other player was playing dirty then fight him like a man, don't be a queermo and land a cheap shot like that.

I disagree, the may be up on the leaderboard but I don't see them even winning the conference. There are much better teams in the East right now.

This year, San Jose Sharks are going to win that Stanley Cup, and no team will be able to compete with them, not even my loveable home team...

I don't think the Sharks are going to win the Cup. There are way too many really good teams in the West. They're third in the Pacific, which the Ducks lead by a lot of points. Unless the Ducks, Kings, and Blackhawks start sucking, the Sharks aren't even going to win a Conference Championship for a while.

The West will probably have the Cup again this year, but it won't be in the Pacific this time.

He was being sarcastic. I actually think the Sharks can do it if we get a little more consistency before the playoffs start. The Pacific has been tough for the past eight years or so but we've thrived in it. Grant it, Anaheim and LA have both got better and the Sharks probably won't be winning any division or conference titles anytime soon but we can go toe to toe with the West in the playoffs.

Everyone talks about how great Anaheim is in the regular season, but they suffer from the same problems the Sharks do, they can't produce in the playoffs. How they ever won a cup is beyond me.

To be honest, if the Sharks didn't choke to LA last season I think we would have won the cup. Anaheim didn't look good at all and I think we could have taken Chicago. And the East might as well not exist in the NHL when compared to the West.

Oh, didn't catch the sarcasm, but, yeah, the Sharks aren't consistent at all. They switch from being in the wildcard spot to second or third in the division almost every week. Once they can hold a spot for more than a while is when I can see them getting their first cup.

Everyone talks about how great Anaheim is in the regular season, but they suffer from the same problems the Sharks do, they can't produce in the playoffs. How they ever won a cup is beyond me.

The Ducks are a different team now than they were win they were winning Cups, I think. I couldn't tell you their problems specifically, but I just tell people who don't know that they're "not a playoff team."

And the East might as well not exist in the NHL when compared to the West.

Totally, besides the Penguins, Habs, and maybe the Bruins and Lightning, the East doesn't really show up when it comes to facing the West. This year I think the Islanders have a good shot at making it far in the playoffs, but they haven't got the playoff experience of making it every year that teams like Boston and Pittsburgh have, so they probably won't get close to gold.
