Quote from: L K on Yesterday at 03:35:33 PMUnless the NHL pays the players a bot load to try harder I don't think you can fix the all-star game.  It's pretty much unwatchable
The 3 on 3 isn't too bad but it's never going to be more then a scrimmage because no one wants to get hurt.
But these guys are loaded with skill, show it. Last night's shootout challenge wasn't much of a challenge. No gimmicky crap just come in and show us a move or two.Im glad I was out and recorded the skills fiasco last night...made for a quick zip through when I got home.

Hopefully they can make the skills competition a lil better the they are now...

Went to the Marlies game last night and gotta say Holmberg can flat out fly. McMann too. They've got some pretty good prospects down there. Steeves(2 Goals last night) is a nice player and really liked Rifai's game on D. I wonder if they sign him to a contract next season. SDA is probably their best puck carrier/passer. He does everything at top speed.
Woll looks different this season. He looks so poised in the net and very quick for a big guy. Oh and he won again stopping 25 of 26 shots bringing his record to 13-1-0 2.36GAA, .930SV%.

Is this good?

I would not be surprised if part of this is due to the new ESPN service for streaming out of market games in the US.

I am a Toronto maple leafs fan living in the US and all I want to see are Toronto maple leafs games. Last year there was NHL center ice this year there is ESPN+.  It seems like there are so many more games that are blacked out for me and/or not served by ESPN+.

I would easily be willing to pay double or triple the fee in order to get all of the games in one place. But I can't.  So, instead, when I can't get the games through the ESPN feed, I have no choice but to resort to watching a feed I can find on the internet.  I don't want to.  There must be a better way to serve the consumer ants to make money. I want to give them money!
I heard that today on the radio. It's a huge problem and will def turn people off.

Quote from: Highlander on February 02, 2023, 11:46:12 AMI wish someone would put Holl out of my misery.
Holl's 2nd in both shot blocks and hits. Is our best PKing D man, plays regularly against the other team's top guys and makes 2M per. He has played well above his pay grade this season. Him and Gio are solid and making under 3M. Why the dislike?

Samsonov

(Note: I only watched the first period and a half)
I could tell. Nylander was a -3 and Samsonov let in 4 goals glove side... All stoppable.

Love that Samsonov spoke to the media...He didn't look to pleased but glad he didn't hide away. Quality guy.

Quote from: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on February 01, 2023, 10:15:00 PMI hope Dubas gets the message that was sent tonight — this team won't compete with Boston without some significant changes.
He doesn't need a message. He's not stupid, he knows what they need.

I wonder if he really does, though.  I worry that he's unwilling to move out some people because, you know, the team is 3rd best in the league or whatever the standings say.
Almost every team going for it rarely trades a player off their roster. They add players. I would love for him to grab a guy like Crouse.
Who's he going to move out?

I hope we can acquire a 1st line Center
Matthews will be back...if you're expecting one in a trade you're going to be disappointed.

Tap to Simmonds for destroying Greer.

Quote from: L K on February 01, 2023, 10:01:33 PMAt least now we can play Simmonds four more shifts to end the game and do nothing.

Leafs are now going to be 6-5-2 in games that Simmonds dresses. 
He won't be dressing in the playoffs... hopefully

This. I'm surprised at all the Samsonov bashing. He's been incredible value, and if the expectation is that he was going to be prime Hasek every game, then I think that disappointment was inevitable.
There's no bashing. Nobody is saying he sucks and should be fired into the sun. He's now having a bad game after a great 1st period
