Sid Crosby, still pretty good.

Poor Ryan Strome.

The Devils will have a sports betting lounge in their arena:

Was Babcock's system holding back Roman Polak's offensive creativity?!

No.  But the Leafs don't get to play Anaheim very often.

Poor John Gibson, man. I think he's about to flip out.

So this has been bothering me for a while. Goals scored are obviously the only stat that really matters, but most sites show shots on goal, pp opportunities, face offs won/lost and hits. While these stats are interesting, they provide little info as to which team was the dominating team. Are there not more revelant stats available? Puck possession, offensive puck possession?
Itís also possible Iím not going to the right websites.

So the Habs are 6-2-2 with wins over Pittsburgh (twice) and Boston. Price has a .922 Sv% and 2.13 GAA while Domi has 11 points in 10 games and Tatar and Drouin each have 8. Don't think anyone saw that start coming.

Pacioretty has just 2 points in 10 games with Vegas.

Anyone think they can maintain this over the year? I don't see it unless Price stands on his head.

Well I'd imagine their offensive numbers, particularly Domi's, will settle down a little bit as things get going. But to their credit their possession numbers are good (51.5%, 10th in the league) so that's a positive sign for them. I mean there's really no way they maintain that type of winning percentage throughout the year but if Price stands on his head (and really he's very capable of doing that) they could end up a lot higher in the standings than most predicted.

Good, I want the Leafs to eliminate them in the playoffs

Apparently, the Hurricanes will go with 3 goalies.
