Minny will be dogshit this year but I think they can finish above Chicago if healthy because the Hawks D is garbage.

Avs will be good but Comcast, Dish, and DirecTV won't show it because Altitude is in a snit with them and man fuck.

Nick's predictions are pretty close to what I'd say. I could see the Isles / Panthers finding ways to miss the playoffs and Philly / NJ / Montreal being in the mix. In the west, Winnipeg is the big question mark. Arizona, Vancouver, Minnesota, Chicago, maybe Edmonton are in the mix.

I think Chicago could surprise. But yes, their D looks like garbage on paper.

In the east I like NJ to improve into playoff contention. Mtl should be about the same as last year. No idea what to think about the Isles or Panthers.

I'll pick Tampa, Carolina, Colorado, Vegas as the division winners.

Leafs allowing a goal 25 seconds in with Cody Ceci looking real bad, you love to see it folks

Jim Hughson with some real Shit Logic regarding Matthews “putting a little problem behind [him]” and comparing the situation to Patrick Kane winning the Conn Smythe

Hughson was apparently referring to the embarassing Kane partying pictures that came out in 2012, not the sexual assault allegation which was later but it still made my skin crawl and is perhaps the worst example he could use, in addition to the dumb implication that being good at hockey is a good substitute for some sort of self reflection/personal growth/being a good person.

Winnipeg is probably too high if this kind of D-corps becomes a regular thing (projected pairings for tonight with Sami Niku injured and Buff out):

Morrissey-Kulikov
Heinola-Pionk
Bitetto-Poolman

Ya that looks pretty dire. Bitetto was absolutely terrible for the Wild last season. Classic Fenton move.

Andreas Athanasiou not practicing again for #RedWings. If he's not the ice tomorrow, probably won't be ready for Saturday's opener, Blashill said previously.


Larkin's in a non-contact jersey after going off the ice during practice a few days ago. If those two guys are out of the lineup, wooooof

Quote:
Fenton said, “It’s kind of a strange thing, but I told him that he’s like a lizard, the way a lizard takes his tongue and sticks it as far as it does and retrieves what it was trying to do. When you look at Mats, he’s not the tallest in stature, but he uses an incredibly long stick and he reaches into piles and comes out with things. He’s so natural, fluid, smooth. He comes out with things and he’s able to make plays.”

People made fun of the analogy, but Zuccarello understood what he meant.

“It’s just the way it came out, it was funny,” Zuccarello said. “But in a way it got me closer to the boys. The whole team calls me, ‘Lizard,’ now, so it’s fun and almost got me more into the group right away.”
