Minnesota Dubnyks are also kicking it. 11 wins in a row.
They also only have one loss that exceeded a 1 goal differential (6-3 loss to the Islanders no less).

If there ever was a team that could really capitalize on more scoring with a JvR...

Columbus right now has 5 forwards on pace for 70 points or better.

And both are the two 2000 NHL expansion teams.

He's getting seriously outplayed by Greiss, and I imagine the Islanders are hoping someone will his contract off their hands for free.

Well, that'll be something if the Islanders go through the season banking on Greiss. It also sounds like there wasn't any love lost there either.

I wonder what kind of say Tim Murray has in Buffalo in light of the revelations today from the Bills GM, he has basically said it's the Pegulas making every big call, right down to who plays and who is hired and fired, he is not part of the conversation either.

Yeah, I just read that myself. I suppose I figure that there may be a little more deference for the specialized skillset that hockey comes with from an American owner who maybe didn't grow up around the game and so Murray isn't part of anything similar.

I hope so anyways because that just sounds like a trainwreck.

Would certainly help explain some of how the Sabres' rebuild has played out.
