When we all live in the Metaverse, NFTs might be worth something. They’re just reasons to throw away money in the real world.

Not that it will change their minds, but you can always show them the per capita data that shows how big the discrepancies really are:

Man this team lately...
Is just say take it all in stride. Everyone getting COVID, getting shutdown, going west on a road trip, missing our 2nd pairing, Kase...there's over 1/2 a season to go...

Yup. They’re in a rut. It happens. They’ll get out of it soon enough.
Yup, Jack included.

It’s also not like they’re playing all that poorly. Teams are just capitalizing on their mistakes more.

Goalies need to face shots to build up a rhythm and get up to game speed. Lulls between action, where they have to go from 0 to odd-man-rush is not easy.
True but neither goal was difficult...and WTF were JT and Willy doing in that last shift?

First goal was a clean shot from the slot. Those are high percentage plays. The second one was bad, though.

Sportsnet: No one knows hockey like Sportsnet

Proceed to show bland 3 minute long intro to Leafs game
And we've got Gary Galley analyzing the game again...?

That explains the belief that the Rangers being near the top of the league in hits and blocked shots is a good thing. It only translates to them being the worst possession team in the league.

Montreal being the place where Francophone players go to retire and keep the team in the mushy middle would be the most hilarious outcome to this whole situation.

There’s a much bigger talent gap in the East than there is in the West, so the overall league standings are a bit misleading.

The gap between the 8th place team and 9th place team in the East is pretty nuts. Right now 8th is on pace for 107 points. 9th place, Detroit of all teams, is on pace for just 83 points. Every other team in the East is below .500. I know generally speaking it's believed teams in playoff positions by this point of the season make it there, but I doubt we've seen a gap that large in a very, very long time.

In the West there's 6 teams that the 8 place team in the East would either be tied or beating in points percentage. Both the Wild Card teams in the East would be leading the Pacific division in points percentage. The current pace to make the playoffs in the West right now is 96 points, and there's still 4 teams on the outside that have a realistic chance of taking that spot.

Yeah. The good teams in the East are very good, and the rest of the East is bad. Being able to feast on the likes of Montreal, Detroit, Buffalo, Ottawa, New Jersey, etc., is inflating the point totals of the Eastern playoff teams. In the West, there's really only 2 terrible teams - Arizona and Seattle. There are a lot fewer "easy" nights for teams in the West.

Oof, the Oilers let Ottawa score 5 in the 3rd and lost 6-4. McDavid 0 points, Draisaitl 1 assist. Definitely time to inject a dude with tons of baggage into the line-up.

Can he really make things worse?

Not the prettiest, but it’s two points in the bank.

Where do you stream that LK?

It's an HBO thing so it's at Crave.

Yeah, I was afraid of that...damn it...now I'm going to have to get Crave again for this and that stupid Succession show that everyone is telling me to watch.

You'll love Succession.
