OK settle down, Alex.  It's just a sweater.  It's not your first NHL game.

I don't want Alex to settle down.  I want him to skate just a little faster, hit a little harder, pass a little better and score a lot more because he's so geeked up.

In fact I'll call it:  Tuch with 4 goals tonight.

So, I was looking at the standings to see where the Blues stand, and noticed this random stat: there are 12 teams with a record of .500 or worse, and the Sabres are the only team with a + goal differential (+1), and the closest team following is the Wild at -5.  Expanding the criteria to teams with 20 or fewer points (there are 17), again, the Sabres are the only team with a positive goal differential (Panthers are even).

Is this just a fluke stat, or does it describe something meaningful about this team that belies its recent losing streak?

I noticed the same.  It means they win big and lose little.  I do think that if the injuries resolve and they can stay healthy they will be a Win Big team again and will climb back into the playoff hunt.

this will sound weird but... he's not wrong.

Blind squirrel, nut. 

Honestly, and this will sound weird, but I kind of see Ollie as part of the Eichel core.

On the other hand, if we trade him WHO WILL SCORE OUR EN GOALS?  Won't someone think of the EN goals?

morning skates are a tradition that should be no longer. What's the point?

Practice.  Perhaps you've heard of it?

I'm sorry for being an idiot. I've never heard of practice. Interesting. Then definitely continue. Happy Thanksgiving

They call it a morning skate but it's a practice session.  Doing a morning skate in the middle of a back-to-back likely saps too much energy though so teams usually skip it or make it optional.

Well im not an expert, but I can imagine it would losen up some muscles.    But maybe there are better ways of doing this than skating.

Just remembered that there was a player that would do some rope skipping before every game, think it was Datsyuk.

@Eleven with the GDT and an apparent typo (or an inside joke I am missing) in the topic title.

Goat head night.

Can’t lose.

Can(‘t) lose?

See the title from last night. It can be debated whether 11's follow on is in the same vein. Scholars will study this well into the future.

Score goals? When does VO score goals anymore? Quinn can take his PP spot and then when will we see VO score? 

I think you can trade for Grans, I don't think you can trade for a savvy vet at this time. 


VO scores EN and PPGs - he is the ultimate specialist.  LOL 


You are probably correct, we are probably not going to find a worthy to sign vet unless a bad team starts purging already.  But what do we do with Grans?  Send to Rochester?  rotate with Krebs and the other spare forwards?
