Recommended Posts

Tampa Bay has a 10 point lead...on the second best team in hockey AND a game in hand!  Still only have 8 regulation losses on the year...talk about a juggernaut...

And they did this without their starting goaltender for a month.

The 1995-96 Red Wings had a total of 13 losses for the full season.  They lost in the conference finals.  They came in second in their division the next two years and won a Stanley Cup each year.

We went on a long run with Biron as our starter when Miller was out back in the post lockout days...probably not that unusual

Stamkos, Point, Kucherov, Gourde, Johnson, Palat, JT Miller and Killorn upfront with Hedman, Sergachev and McDonagh on defense.  Other then Skinner, Eichel, and Dahlin, which Sabres would even make this team?

Reinhart. Risto.

Reinhart, maybe (not fast enough) and Risto, I doubt it, not good enough defensively and they have bone crushers and Sergachev and Hedman to add to the offense.

Just remember who delivered one of those losses to them.

 

But yeah...that team is good.

And hopefully another in the very near future.

Ever look up Louie Domingue's career stats?  🙂

Let's just say Tampa's offensive capabilities were able to keep pace.

Or how about when Eddie Pasquale got a start and allowed 5 goals with a .792 save %. Tampa still put in 6 and won. It's not fair.

 I remember watching him with the Yotes when we and they were tanking.  Their announcers loved him and I think they actually used the word Dominguator as an homage to the Dominator (Hasek) when Domingue made an unbelievable save.

Yup.

That's my point even if you win that thing it really means nothing, although Washington won it and the SC last season.  I wonder haw many PT winners actually won the SC.

Can I get a #fanctstatguy, or a #nonfancystatguy to look into that, please.  Thanks.

Edited by New Scotland (NS)
the Sabres won the PT once and were smoked in the CF

Oilers 86-87, Flames 88-89, Rangers 93-94, Stars 98-99, Avs 00-01, Wings 01-02, Wings 07-08, Blackhawks 12-13, Caps 17-18

Thanks Geeky.

That's more than I would have guessed.  Has the PT only been around for about 25 years?

How many hitters does Tampa have? Are they tough enough? I'm trying to make a point.

So the PT winner also wins the Cup about a quarter of the time.  Considering 16 teams in the playoffs, that's got to be the highest rate of winning of any seeding, so it's not insignificant.

Was that the Flyers game?  I think I was listening to that on radio.  Walked into one rink with Tampa up huge and came out a few minutes later and Philly had tied it and then TBL found a way to win.

But yeah.. their offense is insane.
