They got blown out by the Islanders. Also lost Dansk to injury earlier in the game.

Seems Vadim Shipachyov has to pay back 2 million in bonus' before he signs in KHL, or wherever...

NHL.com changed the formatting on their stats pages a little and they've somehow made a terrible product even worse.

At this point I'm effectively convinced the NHL doesn't want us to know their stats.

I noticed that this morning as well...I'm not sure who manages their user experience at NHL.com, but it's terrible.

We're about a month into the season and the bottom-3 teams are Arizona-Edmonton-Buffalo. It's 2014 all over again!

Looks like Oilers are well on their way to a Franchise Defenceman.

So it's Crosby vs. Ovechkin again, but more of a race to the bottom.

A bit of context to Ovechkin's project:


Just based on the way things seem to run in Russia, if you're not actively rooting for the established government, especially as a celebrity, you're gulagging behind.

So, apparently Shipachyov has gone back to Russia...Vegas still doesn't have their money.

I'd think that the current climate towards Putin in America might have slightly affected Ovechkin's public statements what with him making millions of dollars playing in the Capital of the US but...well, it's fair to say this isn't exactly pulling the rug out from under my belief that he was a super astute political commentator.

So what does this say about McPhee that he gave somebody he's calling not good enough to be a NHLer a 2-year, $9mil contract?
