    And we all know that Corsi is more important than actual point production since the Cup is awarded annually to the team with the best CF%.

    The incident happened sometime between late in their game against TBL and before they boarded their flight home a few hours later. Bobrovsky was pulled in that game after giving up 4 goals, and as has been his standard practice, he went directly to the locker room instead of remaining on the bench. Their GM says there is no friction between him and Tortorella. So my speculation is that something must have happened in the locker room, maybe what began as an argument between teammates turned into a physical confrontation.... would be my guess.

    Because apparently we're not mature enough to discuss transgender issues without it becoming "weird".

    I agree, the drug trafficking narrative has run it's course.... however... I couldn't afford to disappoint my fan base @New Scotland (NS)

    What's your definition of "production"? Eichel and Skinner are 18th and 35th in league scoring, respectively. Rantanen and MacKinnon are 2nd and 4th... because they have Landeskog, who has more goals than either of them.

    His development is important to the organization. My concern is that while he has a very hard shot, he's not a natural goal scorer, in fact, the last time he score 20 goals or more in a season was back in Bantams. Doesn't matter if he's getting open and taking shots if he can't hit the broad side of a barn. I agree, ideally he develops into a middle 6 guy who can put up 12-15g, maybe the odd 20g season. A third line of TT, MIttlestadt and Nylander would be fun... assuming they figure out how to defend. Yeah I liked his game against NJ, but I'm greedy... Eichel is hitting prime and needs a trigger man to compliment Skinner. I just don't think TT is that guy. Give me a Toffoli, Tarasenko, or Kessel type of player and watch their production jump another level like the MacKinnon line in COL. This needs to happen while Eichel is still young.

    Safesport violation? TT needs to get better at using his teammates in transition. All things considered, it's a relatively easy thing to fix, I'm hopeful Housley can teach him.

    Our house was TP'd while we were in Canada for a week over the break. Some neighbors rallied and kindly cleaned up our yard, but still finding TP all over the property, in the pool filter, stuck to the solar panels, under the grill, in the fire pit, etc. This is like the 4th or 5th time our house has been hit. Middle schoolers, SMH.

    My sources indicate Bobrovsky is a key player in a “highly organized” transcontinental drug-trafficking operation centralized in the northeast United States focusing primarily on heroin distribution. He is suspected of manufacturing and selling narcotics to fellow NHL players, NWHL team managers, and executives.

    Eichel passes to Thompson on the breakout. Thompson holds onto the puck toeying each and every player repeatedly until his shift is over.

    10 min is 12 shifts, or half a game roughly. That CF number has more to do with their opponent than anything else.

    I agree, but I don't think his style of play meshes well with Eichel... there's only one puck to go around. Eichel creates, Skinner cleans up, they need a trigger man who can find soft spots and fire away. Maybe Thompson can become that guy, but he needs understand his job is to get Eichel the puck, find an opening in a scoring area and be ready to fire.
