    That particular play wasn't dirty by NHL standards. Good punch though. You don't often see guys get dropped like that in hockey.

    I didn't tune in till half way through the second. Man I missed that? Wilson does need to calm his tits. He's going to get Gregg Williams'd out there if he keeps this up.

    The Senators put an end to their 8 game losing streak Ducks are on a 9 game losing streak and the Flyers are on an 8 game losing streak. Sucks to suck.

    Fucking lol

    Pretty cool how the Sabres had a 10 game winning streak and are now barely hanging in playoff contention at the all star break. Classic Buffalo.

    The Sabres are a team I root for. If they play the Leafs or Isles in the playoffs, things get different. But I like that franchise.

    A team that has had Hasek, LaFontaine, Mogilny, Andreychuk, and more cool people? My posse.

    He's having some REALLY bad games. I hope that this ship rights itself after the allstar break.

    The 3-3 mini tournament is such a godsend for the ASG.

    Before the switch, I watched the ASG on fast forward the past decade. This year had lopsided games, so it wasn't the best example, but overall the format is wonderful.

    In the 90's, the skills comp was - without a doubt - my favorite night of the NHL season. It was rough for a while starting in the early 00's, but they have done a good job of improving it. They got rid of the "wacky" shootout, which was awful. Now they just need to either trim or eliminate the passing competition (AKA get rid of the mini net portion). That is the one remaining albatross event.

    I never said to dump him. He's just had a rough set of games. This is normal. Seen it before, and he usually bounces back gets silly again. The general fanbase tho? Yeah. In laws said this over the weekend to fire reirdon and replace holt. LOL.

    You’re right. I’m just salty af right now.

    It just seemed like the goal/save differential was too much to deny. It didn’t seem like other teams had that many more shots on goal.

    I'm mashing up the Caps fans on here. @logosteel didn't denounce Holtby, but he also either praised or didn't deny Wilson. @The Great Danton had a bad opinion on Holtby, but has the foresight to know Wilson is a butthole.

    As a goalie, I'll always be sensitive to goalie hate. Holtby - he's very good. He gave up some "eh" stuff in the past couple weeks, but he is still one of the best, and some of his questionable stuff is because the team's playing comes and goes.

    Adding to the Holtby love - he very rarely gives off body language throwing blame elsewhere. A "no chance" goal goes in, he does his water bottle ritual, and gets back to it. More D-blamed goals - he gives an unhappy head nod but gets back to it. Compare that to Lundqvist. Any tiny thing goes wrong, Lundqvist is spreading his arms in a "I give up" motion, or glaring at his D. Seriously - go back and watch the highlights of any goal against Hank. I'd say 80%+ of the time he's visibly shaming his teammates.
