Bobby Ryan with a hat trick in his first game back after substance abuse program. A nice story for sure.

That's just a bit of an exaggeration :lol: :lol:

What those numbers show me is a team that has given up.

Like the Norris, a lot of this gets baked in pretty early based on who starts the season hot thanks to all of the quarter and mid-season polls for these things.

I don't have much of a problem with the top two.

Makar is going to win and he should. There was a very long stretch where he had a legit argument for the Hart.

Gurianov wasn’t even a regular roster player til like 10 games into the season. And he still gets benched for 1/3 of every game.

Looks like the Islanders are abandoning their failed Brooklyn experiment.

They just need to cut bait with Barclays and admit it was a mistake to leave.

The NHL needs to seriously overhaul their schedule making process. All of the northeast teams get serious breaks because of their light travel schedule. They should be forced to play far more back-to-backs compared to teams like the Stars for it.

They talk about parity but then give uneven playing fields to the teams based on location and don't even try to balance out the difference.

Also, remember when Reilly Smith was our bar for a failed prospect? Dickinson and company make Reilly Smith look like Gretzky.

Reilly Smith was never a failed prospect. He just had bad luck in limited minutes in his rookie season. The advanced stats were pretty clear that he was actually really good.

With the NBA suspending it's season, it is probably inevitable the NHL does the same. Going to wreak havoc. Lost revenues, higher escrow for the players, no rise to the salary cap next year, cats and dogs sleeping together ...

I have to think they likely find a way to have the playoffs start six weeks from now. It's not too difficult to use a points per game rate to set the standings through today for the purpose of playoff seeding.
