settling right into that sweet spot of just missing the playoffs and getting a mediocre draft pick. well done. hope for once they aren't dumb enough to indulge the notion that they're one player away and try to pick up a few pieces. they should be dumping d-men at the deadline.
Probably going to be making a blockbuster trade for an average goalie at the deadline. Anyone with a decent future will be gone from the club.
can cross off a few names from the list that usually make the rounds in the Flyers rumor mill. Kane, Bogosian, and some other guy traded from Winnipeg for Stafford, Myers, a first and a few other guys. Kane, Bogosian, and Myers have been mentioned as potential Flyers targets before. Kind of glad they won't be getting any of them. particularly Bogosian because I think Bogo as a nickname is as [email protected] or [email protected] than Coots.
The blockbuster deal involves 8 pieces and includes the following:
TO BUFFALO -
Evander Kane, Zach Bogosian, unsigned G Jason Kasdorf.
TO WINNIPEG -
Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Joel Armia, Brendan Lemieux, 2015 1st round pick.
Armia and Lemieux are two of the Sabres top wing prospects. Armia was a first round pick drafted in 2011, and Lemieux, son of former long-time NHLer Claude, was a 2014 2nd round pick. The Sabres are believed to be trading their lowest 1st round pick in 2015 (they have three - their own, the Islanders, and the Blues).
have to trade Coburn, Timonen, Streit, Grossmann, or some combination of those to recoup some of the terribleness that Holmgren visited on this team's assets with the MacDonald trade.
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Sunday that the team has acquired defenceman Cody Franson and forward Mike Santorelli from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Nashville’s first-round selection in the 2015 Draft, and forwards Brendan Leipsic and Olli Jokinen.
Alex Ovechkin had himself a night on Sunday. The Caps' captain had four points leading the team to a 5-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in Anaheim.
Ovechkin's two first period goals helped the Caps keep pace with the Ducks while his two assists to Andre Burakovsky helped the Caps clinch the win.
Not everyone, however, was impressed.
Anaheim captain, Ryan Getzlaf, was very vocal in his criticism after the game going so far as to call Ovechkin's play "embarrassing."
Why was he so frustrated? Said Getzlaf, “I didn’t know he was going to dive the way he did tonight all over the [expletive] ice. That part of it is a little embarrassing, pardon my language. He’s a great player. He’s going to score goals and make plays. That other stuff’s embarrassing.”
You can see a video of Getzlaf's comments here courtesy of Abbey Mastracco of Fox Sports West.
It was a frustrating night for Getzlaf who took two minor penalties, one for a slash against Ovechkin in the first period.
After Ovechkin hit Getzlaf into the boards, Getzlaf responded with a slash. Getzlaf evidently felt Ovechin went down a little too easily and the two captains exchanged a few words and a few shoves. The two were eventually broken up by the refs. Getzlaf received the only penalty on the play.
Simmonds with a nice goal and having a very good year.
Black goals matter.
the flyers beat the best teams in the league and lose to the Buffalo/Hurricanes
