2013-2014 NHL Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Phil Kessel has been absolutely dominant the past month. Hattrick so far tonight, second player in the NHL to reach 30 goals. This is the best hockey I have seen him play in his career, finally using his body to create space. Kessel is a big reason the leafs have been the hottest team in the league.

Olympics are over and the NHL is back. Buffalo beat Carolina last night in the first game since the Olympic break. This was a makeup game, their previously scheduled game was postponed.

Wings back in action tonight, Toronto starts the stretch run tomorrow. Not sure how the Olympic travel and games will effect the returning players. Many teams dealing with the same issue.

Happy to have the NHL back, I am excited for the remainder of the season.

The radio stations are blowing up in Tampa about St Louis wanting a trade...he has a no trade contract, so if he does, everyone looks at him as a cry baby..more to come

Because Stevie Y (GM Lightening and Team Canada) did not choose him to be on the Olympic team. Stamkos went down, so he was able to play on the team. His coach said today, does he look like he wants off the team during practice. But lots of rumors flying around.

Analyst Ray Ferraro called MSL a baby and that he should suck it up. It wasn't his coach who passed him over, it was his GM, who players rarely see anyways.

Kessel scores less than 8 minutes into the Leafs first game back. Patented snap shot. Really fricken happy to have Leafs hockey back.

Ryan Miller had 2 assists last night.

Stephen Weiss has 2 assists this season.

To be fair Miller has played a lot more minutes this year :silly:

Eddie Lack getting the start over Luongo in tomorrow's Heritage Classic. This on the heels of an unhappy Ryan Kesler being shopped. The Canucks organization is a joke sometimes.

I still can't figure out why Yzerman didn't include St Louis on that olympic roster. Saw this coming after the feelings were hurt.

Horrifying flashbacks to the Jiri Fischer incident. As Rich Peverly of the Stars has collapsed on the bench tonight and is receiving medical attention.

Leafs just played 3 games in 4 nights in California, got beat good by the Sharks but were able to beat the Kings and Ducks in regulation. 4 out of 6 points aint bad for that stretch. Leafs now have a 3 point cushion between them and the 3rd place seed in their division.

Really enjoying this season coming down the stretch. April is all sorts of awesome...Baseball starts, The Masters, snow melts and NHL playoffs.

The Leafs are Cup final contenders. Neither Boston nor Pittsburgh are bullet proof. The Leafs are capable of beating either. They could use help from another team upsetting Boston or Pittsburgh so that the Leafs could avoid having to beat both of them.

I dunno. The leafs just surpassed the 2007 Thrashers team to have the worst 5 on 5 shot differential of any team in the analytics age. Doesn't seem like a good recipe for success. This year's Buffalo team is also worse than that Atlanta team, but Toronto is way off. Could hit -1000 by season's end.
