    Kovalchuk Returning to the NHL?

    It just keeps getting better. https://www.tsn.ca/los-angeles-kings-captain-anze-kopitar-on-ilya-kovalchuk-it-s-not-a-great-situation-1.1397101
  2. The Makos have a pretty aggressive forward lean. He could be a little too far over his toes and not getting enough mid blade pressure to get the bite needed to hold the turn.

    Gudas for Niskanen

    Interesting deal between the Flyers and Caps, swapping Gudas and Niskanen.
  4. DiPietro is a fine example of an organization making a huge mistake and then compounding that mistake. The Isles fell in love with DiPietro's puck handling for one decent year of college hockey and dealt a known cornerstone goalie for the chance to draft him. Then they doubled down on stupid with his contract, that they are still paying.

    Mandatory Helmet for Young Children?

    Almost any rink I've ever gone to now has posted signs that helmets must be worn by anyone under X years of age.

    CCM V8 Helmet Fit?

    I was a small in both the V08 and the 310.

    Garage sales in Columbus?

    Columbus will continue to be a revolving door franchise until they move on from Tortorella. Players can only last so long under his go-go-go and everybody blocks shots regime before they get burned out.

    Officials for 2019 Playoffs

    For a guy who didn't believe in fate, Morpheus sure put a lot of stock in a prophecy and things happening the way they were supposed to.

    Nailed it.

    Brooks Orpik has retired

    I couldn't stand Orpik. "Opportunistic" hitter that wouldn't back up iffy shots.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    I've never seen a player fan on more one-timers than Pastrnak did throughout the playoffs. I speculated early on that perhaps his earlier hand injury had something to do with it but who knows. Between Pastrnak's whiffs and the poor decision making by him and Marchand, it seems to be somewhat of a miracle the Bruins did as well as they did.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    There was nothing egregious but just about every trip up and down the ice had its share of regular season penalties. Both teams know this going in and it does limit offensive chances.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    I think O'Reilly was the hands down choice and the voters got it right, no matter how hard NBC was pushing the Binnington narrative. I think I would even have selected Pietrangelo over Binnington.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    To be fair, it wasn't refereed, it was watched by referees. Everyone knows going in that game 7 will be essentially free reign which is what makes scoring first so important in a game 7. It is almost impossible to mount a comeback when hooking/holding/interference are all legal in game 7. Not a complaint, just an observation. If someone had gone to Hollywood with the script that the Blues wrote this season they would have been laughed out of the office. From last place on January 3rd to lifting the Cup on June 12th, that is an amazing story.

    David Perron

    Not exactly the way this Bruins fan wanted to be 6 degrees to a Stanley Cup champion but congratulations to David.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    O'Reilly was the clear choice, Binnington would have been the cop out selection.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    Blues wrote a great story, last place to Stanley Cup champions.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    You knew whoever got the lead would win in an "anything goes" game 7. Impossible to play catch up hockey when interference and the like are ignored. Good on the Blues for getting the lead because it would have been the same had roles been reversed.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    I like Heinen's game. He does a lot of the subtle things well. The only possible change I see would be inserting Grzelcyk if he gets cleared to play.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    As history has shown, game 7 will probably be one of the loosest games in terms of penalties. I think they'll fall back on the standard of whether the action took away a scoring opportunity or created a scoring opportunity. Anything else, unless absolutely blatant or dangerous, will be play on.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    This is sounding a lot like what was being said after game 3. I wouldn't write-off the Blues at all.

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    All a matter of perspective. The Bruins had much better energy and did a good job of protecting and eliminating open ice. Once again, the team that played with more jump won the game. Game 7 will be interesting. Will the Bruins steamroll the Blues in the opening 10 or will the Blues play another great road game and spoil the party?

    As the great orator Deadpool exclaimed, "Who fucking cares?"

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    If I just say "you're right" will you shut the fuck up about this?

    Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues

    Revenge mode for an uncalled trip? No such thing. The Bruins will be too concerned with forcing a game 7 than anything else.
