Also, we get it Randy. You're mad at the media over Grabovski, but you don't need to put him in the shootout ahead of Kessel just to prove a point to everyone when he's clearly cold. We know you're a better coach than Damien Cox would be.

Seriously, could we just start the playoffs NOW?! PLEASE?! Toronto vs Montreal in the Stanley Cup Playoff's.. its what dreams are made of!
Reports are Jimmy Howard about to get a 6 year $32M extension.
Reports are from Aaron Ward. Grain of salt with this bitch.
ive seen many reports the same vanilla, if they did thats a pretty good signing by the wings.
Reports are trickling in that Forsberg will be skating with the team on Saturday and possibly playing on Monday night. Should be interesting to watch.
the Kings almost pissed away the game tonight, got a 2 goal lead then took a 40 minute vacation, it's a good thing it was only Colorado
My Hart Standings if the season ended today:
Ovi and Toews could swap if he stays hot and the Caps stay hot.
So as the start of the 2013-2014 season is less than 6 months away, is anyone else getting pretty intrigued by the whole Phoenix situation? The team is bleeding money, there's no one in place to buy them anymore (like virtually at all - I haven't heard jack in over a month) and keep them in Phoenix.
Relocation is the obvious choice, but with the new realignment in place for the next 3 seasons.... where?
Quebec City is the easy answer, but that'd fuck up realignment. Kansas City was mentioned in years gone by... not a good hockey market. Seattle won't be ready for a team until at least 2014-2015 season.
Coyotes may legitimately continue to bleed the desert dry for another season until the NHL can figure out wtf to do. The only way I see them going to Quebec is if they are forced to stay in the Western Conference... which would just be the worst travel schedule imaginable. There's no way Detroit goes back to the West (marcelos may have a heart attack from rage). Columbus may move in the near future too, who knows.
Any thoughts? A decision probably needs to be made within the next 60 days.
If Ovechkin stays as hot as he's been and ends up managing to win the Rocket Richard and Art Ross by more than just 1-2 goals and 5 points, I'd say he wins without a doubt, as unfortunate as it may be for Tavares (who has been exceptional this year). He'd need like 20 points in the last 7 games though... so.. incredibly unlikely. Crosby may still win it, for all we know... been out 2.5 weeks now and still has a 5 point lead.

Remarkable stat I came across: There is exactly one forward in top 60 leaders for TOI per game, and he is 11th overall so that means he is miles ahead of the #2 forward. I think it would have taken me a bit to guess who it was.
The answer is Kovalchuk at 25:13 a game! More than defensemen Girardi, Chara, Kronwall, Keith etc etc.

I'll never get too excited about Phoenix moving until it's actually official. If/when they do go, I'd like to see them in Seattle rather than Quebec though.
where did the rest of the red wings fans go? conscript, irony why are you leaving me alone!
