It's super weird that there's hockey today. Weirder still that they have had no real pre-games to speak of. Pens/Flyers starting up cold in the middle of a pandemic is either gonna be the most listless floating or a bloodbath

Cautiously optimistic about the Habs this season.
It seems good on paper and from what I've seen and read about in the off-season, but ya never know.

I'm mildly excited for the dumpster fire of Covid Cup. Going to be super mad at checks roster Mike Matheson and Cody Ceci tonight and continue to wonder why Kaspy Kap isn't a 90pt forward. If both teams were anywhere near prepared Flyers/Pens could be a really good game. Tonight though going with gong show baby!

Ekblad and Yandle together:
61.55 CF/60, 52.78 CA/60 = 53.83% corsi for

Yandle without Ekblad: (numbers are krangled, built on powerful napkin math since I've lost my grip on the fancy stat community and couldn't anywhere to get the /60 numbers for a Yandle without Ekblad dataset)
53.3~ CF/60, 64.1~ CA/60 = 45.7% corsi for

that's uh. that's horrific shot bleedin', folks

https://evolving-hockey.com/ has an insanely useful combo tool (unlike Natural Stat's which is questionable). With Josh Brown - 48%, Pysyk - 39.5%, Stralman - 44%, and Matheson - 44.4%. Excluding Ekblad you're looking at a low of 46 CF/60 and a high of 54 CF/60. With Ekblad/Brown you're looking at 55-58 CA/60 and the remaining 3 other defenseman it's 65, 70, and 70. What's really wild about Yandle last year is the 55% actual goals for vs 45% expected outcomes. 10% spreads are sustainable right?

Chicago is worse than Detroit (in hockey, not as a city overall).

Prediction: fired up by the success of the Bills, the Sabres are going to win several early games in the season, giving everyone hope, before inevitably sliding down the rankings and finishing 6th in the division.

As a Pens fan, I hope McDavid is stuck playing with scrubs like Kassian his whole career
but as a general hockey fan, I would love to see what he can do with a winger with even a modicum of skill so I hope the kid makes it

He is playing with the Nuge this year!

JP is playing on the third line with Ennis and Turris to start. Probably gonna be fed soft o-zone starts. Tippett did a good job sheltering certain lines/d pairings last year and with a deeper team I expect he'll do a lot more of that this year.
