    Funny to look at the standings in the Eastern Conference right now... Atlantic has the top 3 teams, followed by the ENTIRE Metropolitan division and closes out with the rest of the Atlantic teams.

    Looks like Metropolitan will get all of the wild cards again this year.

    Not really shocking... the teams that make up the Metropolitan have usually been competitive. The only one that wasn't is Columbus, and they have gotten MUCH better the last few years.

    A big chunk of the Atlantic are the teams that used to be in the division with the Caps that the Caps crushed every year, so that is most of that bottom grouping. The only shocker there is Toronto, and again they have been improving the last couple of years.

    Oilers are 0-16 in coaches challenges this year, for and against.

    Kari was supposed to start against Chicago tonight, but Hitch last minute changed his mind and Bishop is in. Guess they like Kari against Pittsburgh tomorrow, if I'm not mistaken he has a pretty solid record against them.

    Should be a good game, though Pens are currently short a center so I am expecting them to recall somebody.

    I didn't get to watch any of that but we needed that win! 5 in a row! Listened to the radio broadcast the whole game.

    Looks like last night's NYI/DET game might have been one of the games of the year :eek:

    I honestly wish I owned something in yellow to wear to the PK Subban game tonight. Also partly out of Habs protest, good thing I am going for free.

    Was a great game all around, though I think you guys got two goals from Maata :lol:

    Unless you were looking for goaltending :lol:

    Rumored trade pricing for some of the guys available for trade is hilarious. The Sens are looking to move Dereck Brassard. Guy is a solid center, but they're apparently asking for a first round draft pick, a top prospect, AND another NHL player for him. He's also 30 with only a year left on his deal at a $5 million cap hit :nuts:

    To be fair they took on Gaborik who has 14 points in 30 games this season and has a cap hit of $6 million while retaining IIRC 25% of Phaneuf's salary. Only thing they really saved was if they buy out Gaborik after the season it will save them some money from what I was reading.

    Ironically the Pens played against Phaneuf on Tuesday... and will do so again tomorrow against LA :lol:

    Holtby is a dumpster fire in net right now. I have no faith he can stop a breakaway, not sure I remember that last one he actually made a save on. He is been awful most games this year. I really wish they would play Grubauer more.
