My ESPN standings app is currently putting the Coyotes behind Minnesota even though the Coyotes have more points.

I understand it though.

I love how he throws up his arms as if to say "Who me?" and then gives him a half assed cross check while on the ice.

I don't think he meant to get him in the face, but even slashing a guy in the midsection isn't good.

For sure, but his instinct was to seemingly try and wriggle out of the foul. Like, come on dude.

The Wild are the first team to allow 20+ goals in their first three games since 1989 LOL.

Even the dreadful '92-'93 Senators under Bowness haven't been worse.

Another NHL record beaten by the Canucks: first time in NHL history that a team blows four multi-goal leads in its four first games and end up losing all four.

Yikes. The purple one was much better IMO.

I'm still afraid of the Stars' one, especially if Razor is again in the commitee.

Here's all of them. The Vegas one glows in the dark.

My favorites are Florida, Minnesota, and NYR. Several look just like their normal jersey like the Flyers.

Same as Troy. I do like the Flames one too.

AAA: FLA, MIN, NYR, CGY.

Success: EDM, DAL, SJ, PIT, LA, VAN, SEA, WSH

Meh: WPG, TB, TOR, ANA, BUF, BOS, NSH, STL, AZ, CAR, CBJ, OTT, VGK, PHI, NJ, NYI

Fail: MTL (WTF with this non-sense powder blue?), DET (second fail, only a workmark with no logo sucks. And there's no black in the Wings' color palette), COL (this logo is dull and the colors belong to the wrong franchise. COL and NJ have the same Rockies' colors), CHI (dull as well).

I think that's supposed to be the Expos?

Cool idea I guess but it still sucks LOL.

I at least give Montreal credit for trying something different. This is the jersey line created for silly ideas. I think it would have looked better had Florida not gone with the same base color only with a better overall end result.

Yeah that's the problem with O6 franchises that never changed logo or design: they have to be new rather than retro. But MTL had others logo, they could have used the original CA or the CAC one.

Or they could tap into the Wanderers or whatever that other Montreal team was.

The Flames' one is cool. So is the New York Hockey Rangers.

The Sharks one is retro enough that I hate it and like it at the same time, but SJ using a font that pre-dates their existence is good enough for me.

I could talk about how the Stars should be using the Oakland Seals logos instead of the Sharks to try and draw Troy offsides, but that fruit is too low-hanging.

I'm anti Minnesota. That's the extent of it. Anything else used works for me.

Even in the win, Fleury's save percentage was .885.

Which is still a great improvement. His next starts will give more indications about a potential Khudobination.

Yes they still gave up 3 goals but it's a slight improvement.
