The NHL announced on Jan. 5 that the new divisions will be named after league sponsors for just this season. So get used to hearing: Scotia NHL® North Division, Honda NHL® West Division, Discover NHL® Central Division and the MassMutual NHL® East Division

Congratulations to the United States tonight. It was closer than you might have wanted, but when you get two and the other guys get nothing, that’s a well-deserved win. Good job, the future looks a little brighter for you guys.

watched the first 2 oilers canucks games (im an oilers fan who lives in vancouver, so very relevant to my interests), pretty decent. mcdavid with a nice hat-trick last night after not scoring any points the night before. glad the hockey is back. will enjoy all the games against canadian teams this season.

Fenners' Pen (jim in vancouver), Friday, 15 January 2021 18:31 (four months ago) link

Yeah, all canadian division is very cool stuff. I think some of the teams are a couple of years away (OTT, MTL), but they're all decent to good.

Jimi Buffett (PBKR), Friday, 15 January 2021 18:34 (four months ago) link

this might be the closest to an all canadian league we'll ever get

north and east division probably the toughest, i'd say

it bums me out it happened right before seattle was about to get a team, because this happens to be probably my second favourite team vancouver has had

Wayne Grotski (symsymsym), Monday, 18 January 2021 20:52 (three months ago) link

they really shoved a bunch of good teams into the east, the group of death. it will be hard to assess relative strength with this setup, it's like college football or something

Wayne Grotski (symsymsym), Monday, 18 January 2021 20:55 (three months ago) link

last night the penguins, for the third time in franchise history, scored while shorthanded two men. goalie casey desmith got the lone assist for his first nhl point

here's 16 minutes of 3-on-5 goals: https://www.nhl.com/video/5-on-3-shg-in-nhl-history/t-277350912/c-5385637

surprising number scored by defencemen. feels like half of them are either by the flyers (usually mike richards) or against the rangers. modano's was the most impressive imo

mookieproof, Wednesday, 20 January 2021 18:44 (three months ago) link

Yeah, Richards was a SH monster. My favorite Flyer for a couple years there.

i guess this is the obvious choice, but definitely the sedin era

i'm younger so i lived through it and was able to experience all of the excitement, though

having said that, it must've been something else to see cpt canuck or the russian rocket play

hard to say...the bure/linden/kirk team was very easy to love when I was a kid, the sedins/luongo era came with a bit more angst (and some incredible moments). Canucks always seem to have one or two transcendent players, and eventual heartbreak of course.

Team looks way better after playing Ottawa three times in a row huh

Wayne Grotski (symsymsym), Friday, 29 January 2021 23:00 (three months ago) link

penguins have one regulation win

also they are 5-3-1 (and bad)

My one Caps fan friend seems to think they got taken advantage of but Mantha is a hell of a player so

never thought i could think less of caps fans

Kind of feel Foligno will sign back with Columbus next year anyhow.

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 03:52 (one month ago) link

Kinda surprised the kings’ big 3 didnt take a chance to be moved tbrr

Im assuming they were offered a chance to move

tough to gauge all the possibilities

i mean taylor hall is a former mvp who has two goals this season, a fat salary, and had a no-trade clause. buffalo got shafted (or did they?) because that was the market

his fault for wearing a single-digit (non-nine) number as a forward imo

sounds like the caps did well to get mantha tho

mookieproof, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 04:24 (one month ago) link

...and when panarin stuck up for his mate, wilson grabbed him by the hair and slammed his head to the ice, injuring him.

brutal: https://defector.com/guy-boucher-where-is-he-now-ottawa-senators

The highlight of Guy Boucher’s time as Ottawa Senators head coach, a job he held for almost three seasons, was getting to the Eastern Conference Final in 2016–17, then losing in double OT of Game 7. The lowest point of his tenure came in November 2018, when a bunch of his players laughed about how much the team sucked as they rode in a car to a hotel.

College
Parros played four years at Princeton University, where he totaled 52 points and 119 PIM in 111 games. He was named team captain for his senior season in 2002–03. While at Princeton, Parros majored in economics and wrote his senior thesis on the West Coast longshoremen's labor dispute.[3] In 2010, he was chosen as the fourth-smartest athlete in sports by the Sporting News.[4]
