my name is john carter



The Las Vegas Golden Knights are the best team in western hockey. They have the best home record in the league. They have not lost in seven straight. Welcome to your 2018 NHL! Let's check out the standings:





And now let's talk about how cool the Lightning-Golden Knights Stanley Cup games are gonna be!

Let's revisit this fantastic example of fortune telling from seven weeks ago.

quote:

Matt Duchene trade leaves Senators in clear win-now mode

After falling one goal short of reaching the Stanley Cup Final in the spring, the Senators have established a clear window of opportunity that covers this season and next. Beyond that lies the summer of 2019, when Erik Karlsson, Duchene and Derick Brassard are all due to become unrestricted free agents.

They're 6-14-4 since.

It would be great if they didn't completely cash out by having 10 outdoor games a year, but it's the NHL so oh well. I just watch one a year and pretend it's still a special thing.

That reads like when an advertiser wants to say Super Bowl but knows they technically can't without paying royalties, so they use an alternate name.

What, Me, Corsi?


Duchene is 3-3-6 since the trade.

Landeskog and MacKinnon both had three points each just last night again the Islanders, 2 goals and four assists.

Certain players have flourished since the trade, this is now definitely MacKinnon's team. After last year and how the draft went I'm thrilled with how the Avs are doing, even if we're not terribly close to the playoffs.

^Last I saw, Wisniewski didn't even think he was going to make the roster.

Wait, the WC is a home game for the Sabres?

In NYC.

Just because a city is in New York doesn't mean New York City is a home game.

They have some deal with the city where they don't have to pay property taxes on MSG as long as the Knicks and Rangers never play a home game anywhere else. Dolan saves a fortune.

It's because the Rangers have an exclusivity deal with MSG.
