I guess getting Kari goaltending every third game is better than getting it every game.

Roope seems....not very good. Seems like an instant turnover every time he gets the puck.

Thank God Nill for our secondary scoring. He recognized they needed to improve it during the offseason, and he answered that need.

At least we didn't lose 8-2 like the Flyers. Christ, what a bunch of *fargin'* losers.

I walked home from my buddy’s place so I had time to calm down. Y’all have already covered the glaring lack of secondary scoring when we aren’t being given PP’s (100% tonight though, baby!), and how much Nichuskin *fargin'* SUCKS, so I’ll add this:

Although I respect Monty’s balls, I was not at all a fan of pulling Bishop with 4 minutes left. I feel like in theory that could have been enough time for us to get within one (based on how the momentum was going at the time) and THEN give up the dagger ENG.

The game was really over the moment Heiskanen shot the puck into Andersen’s glove. Everything was leading up to that moment and I guarantee you he wants that one back. The look on his face on the bench was very telling.

Anyways, give Bishop a rest and dress Khudobin next game. And we might as well just let Honka play forward in place of Nichuskin. I’m dead serious.

Nichushkin is officially a bust in my eyes. He looks exactly the same as he did in 15-16. He is weak, loses puck battles, and has horribly weak shots.

Wasn’t happy with the early goalie pull either, for that exact reason. And not happy with Val, but it’s one game. The Stars hung with TO for half a game, even though TO was the better team. TO forced those mistakes, but the turning point came when Benn took a stupid penalty and put them on the PP. TO’s PP ouught to be illegal.

Apparently TO doesn’t ever ice the puck either ...

The other thing was that Bishop hardly played the puck at all. Maybe twice, whereas the game before, he played it countless times. That’s TO completely controlling the puck.

Toronto is also the #1 offensive team in the NHL (even without Nylander), so there's that. They're going to spend 99% of this season making other teams' defenders and goalies look like ass.

Good breakdown on the role of the puck-charging forward, using Zack Hyman's awesome game against Dallas as an example:

Hyman was offside at least twice because of his nose.

Not the first Hyman breakdown I've ever seen.

Both of you are terrible people.
