You mean to tell me that the 71-72 Blackhawks didn't give up a single power play goal in 78 games?

You are fake news.

Yeah, I wondered about that. Maybe they had a different way of keeping records or some *poo poo*. You'll note that there are a lot of 100%ers on that list.

I had no idea the Stars were that close to the all-time record. Now I hope they beat it.

Ok, yeah, it looks like maybe the NHL didn't keep records of PK until 1988:

Of note: the 99-00 Stars had the second-best PK in NHL history. We've come full circle.

Team Ruff also lost the Puppy Bowl to Team Fluff like 93-36.

Looking at the schedule I don't see Ruff getting fired until after the TBL game on the 18th. I'll actually be at that game, so I may get to help with the "send off" party!

Cowlishaw: Well, it's pretty simply. Lindy Ruff will be gone at the end of this season, assuming the Stars don't win a playoff series. Ruff was Nill's hire. Every GM gets one coaching change and then it's on him. So the clock starts ticking on Nill after Ruff leaves. Nill has been very good for the most part. But he hasn't addressed goaltending when he needed to, and the results aren't what they should be for this team.

Sounds like Willie is done in Vancouver after this season.

Willie's taken a bottom-three lottery team roster and made it into a bubble team. But someone had to be the fall guy for a decade of shitty drafting and free agents.

This. I want someone who's never been tainted by this franchise before.

The roster is awful, but no one is going to celebrate a guy taking a bad team and coaching them up all of two spots in the standings.

Most likely. Paul MacLean, also possible. But if Willie is really done in Van, I hope he'd be a consideration.

I believe he is an assistant coach for Ottawa. Not that that would preclude him from being hired.

Sheldon Keefe would be perfect. His teams emphasize speed, skill, and skating, and the guy is like a year older than Sharp. He's also developed all of Toronto's amazing young talent, which has them lightyears ahead of where they should be in their rebuild.


So naturally Nill will hire Bob Hartley instead.

We already have more than enough leadership with Benn, why not make him a player/coach?

8. Don’t know how things will shake down in Dallas and prefer not to guess. But I wonder if Ken Hitchcock will end up there in some role. Some connections remain.

Gonna need a wide angle lens if you want to fit Hitch in the frame these days.
