    Mainly meant that if they sign him 3 years, he's 26 and then they can sign him long term then, thus keeping him for most of his prime. 27-33 are on average the best years for players.

    It's only his third year the NHL, and he has been inconsistent at worst. If he was bigger, he'd be a much better goalie. Still has potential though.

    Dallas fans are really crying about the penalties (purely because of the discrepancy imo).

    With Benn, I remember reading his agent wanted a 3-4 year contract for slightly more dollars, and the team wanted a 5-6 year contract for slightly less dollars. Looks like they reached a pretty fair balance to me.

    well that was a well deserved loss

    the goal being waved off could've gone either way, bias aside, its unfortunate it happened, but it worked out in the end and didn't matter

    Well according to the Preds boards, we played possibly the most uninspired game in the history of the team against St. Louis. Apparently the team showed more effort in the expansion years when they were already out of the playoffs.

    There is also some serious concern Rinne is having some issues. Dude hasn't been able to stop anyone in 1 vs 1, breakway/shootout mode.

    That is some Datsyukian level shit right there. Hawks are good man. Real good.

    Reading recaps of the Edmonton game last night with the barrage of penalties is hilarious. Didn't realize the NHL schedule a three team game yesterday.

    Mezaros is out for at least 4 weeks due to a shoulder injury which is going to hurt the flyers bad. I'm hoping somehow who they have steps it up. Also Darren Helm is going to play tonight! I'm

    That Karlsson goal last night was pretty nice and he said he didnt even get the right shot. Glad to see he's the real deal and didn't just have 1 good season.
