You guys this kind of just hit me. Hockey's kind of a stupid sport. It depends WAY TOO MUCH on luck. You look at those BJ goals and it's just throw it at the net and maybe we get lucky and it sneaks in. So often in hockey the less skilled team wins. Why? Because it's a crap shoot of pucks bouncing off people, sticks, skates.
Oh yeah also the Leafs never get powerplays. That would be a way to make sure skill wins. When the less talented team is constantly hacking, slashing, holding but the refs are never willing to call it.
On a whole I've become a little disillusioned with the sport.
I feel like I've been saying this for years but the closer two teams are in skill and the relative importance of an individual goal, it makes it much more likely that luck is going to play a huge role in a series. Or just a bad result because of a funky matchup. A lot of weird things happened in these play-in series and I don't know how much we should take away from any of it.

I moved to BC two years ago, impossible to get a Doctor here. What BS on what we pay for healthcare, no frikken doctors.
Canada has as many doctors as the US per capita.
We really should aim higher than the US as a comparable.

Did Skynet/Agent Smith/Ultron/Thanos have a point?

I know this will probably fall on deaf ears but is there anyway people could maybe make a concerted effort to not post speculation or whatever sensationalist claims they find out there? Even if some of this stuff is true, you should be asking if repeating it actually helps anyone. If this is a genetically engineered bioweapon that changes...what, practically?
I'm sure there will be plenty of time for conspiracy theories and wild accusations but right now with so many people worried and confined we need to remember that while we're urging people to self-isolate in order for the good of the community and our physical health, we also have a responsibility to look after each other's mental well-being. Paranoia, panic, the instinct to find scapegoats...none of these things are productive now and they especially won't be if things get worse.

I appreciate it's one paragraph of what I'm sure is a longer conversation but that's basically just straight-up gibberish.

Andersen with 3 or more goals given up in 6 of his last 7 games. I just don't understand why we are riding him into the ground during a stretch of hockey where he has not been good
Should have pulled him already but probably storm off and pout. Pick up your f'n game.
What makes you believe that Andersen is the type to storm off and pout?

McKenzie saying he had asked for a trade
Yeah Friedman said the same a month or two ago as well.

Muzzin looks like crap this period. I wonder if he's 100%.
Yep he's had a bad period.
Hard to do anything with cramps that bad, let alone play professional sports.

This is why Dubas has held off on getting a team puppy.

I can't remember for sure, but I've heard Ristolainen's name bantered about. If indeed he was available and not just being shown out there for interest, I'd be trying to get him to solve our problems on RD.
I would gather, that a trade with Buffalo would be hard to do, but I like his style. He's only 25 and the points seem there. I was actually surprised to hear his name, but things are ready to esplode in Buffalo, any second!Quote from: herman on February 04, 2020, 08:08:53 PM
You need a big strong RHD who can block shots and take the body and clear the net.
