    The Flyers defense is going to get destroyed by the Nash line.

    I just clued in that it was gabby-richards-nash. That's a nasty top line.

    Well, glad I was wrong so far. Hope the Flyers can keep up the pressure.

    Was in 2nd row directly behind the net tonight for Caps/Habs. As a goalie it was great to watch the goalies (Price twice), but god damn is it disheartening to be a Caps fan right now. :(

    Looked like Lindros, Messier and Fleury instead of Gabby, Richards and Nash...terrible. The team lacks chemistry and I'm going to hold on the theory that the role guys they gave up in order to get and afford Nash will be the downfall of this team. Doesn't help to open the season with Bos 2, Pitt2 and Phi 2. I will be at the Leafs game Saturday night from my dad's new seats...curious to see where they moved him.

    :slayer: this is awesome.



    Its been FOUR games. Four. On top of a one-week training camp, Nash being injured while playing overseas and none of your important players putting time in during the lockout. Shipping off guys who already had chemistry and slotting in a top-liner who needs time to fit in is going to result in some bumps along the way. If they keep this up for another couple weeks, then you can be concerned.

    this. Besides, LOTS of teams are having bumpy starts. It's somewhat inevitable at this point.

    I've noticed that they're not being particularly physical either. Seemed like the Flyers out hit the Rangers and there was not much of a response.

    Also, on the 5x3, the Rangers controlled the play for the majority of the time. But they weren't creating opportunities besdies a great one from Nash. I don't know what the hesistation was.


    a good news spot for the Rangers, is Taylor Pyatt. Best Ranger through 3 games.

    Yep.

    Look at the bottom 11:

    VANCOUVER 1 1 1
    COLUMBUS 1 2 1
    CAROLINA 1 2 0
    DETROIT 1 2 0
    PHILADELPHIA 1 3 0
    NY RANGERS 1 3 0
    FLORIDA 1 3 0
    PHOENIX 1 3 1
    CALGARY 0 2 1
    LOS ANGELES 0 2 1
    WASHINGTON 0 3 0

    Vancouver, Detroit, Philly, NYR, Florida, Phoenix, LA, Washington were all playoff teams last year. Heck, Carolina picked up Semin and J. Staal and were supposed to be better this year and they're terrible thus far. Calgary and Columbus are the only ones in the right place there. Give Torts some time, I'm sure he'll work out some changes - NYR's roster is too good to not be effective.

    Talk about extreme hockey karma for Edmonton... get a disallowed tying goal on a garbage call with 1 minute left, Yakupov pots one with 5 seconds left and Gagner wins it in OT. Check out the highlights on NHL.com if you can, ridiculous game. Hilarious celebration from Yakupov and well worth the watch:

    Sharks are looking pretty scary early on, but I don't have a lot of faith in Niemi as a #1. Glad the Flames managed to actually win one. Nice for you to see a home win, NYI - although I'm still confused if you've reverted back to NYR fandom or not.

    Come on, gents... I can't be the only one watching hockey around here.

    the Sharks look poised for yet another excellent regular season.


    I've missed the past few games due to social obligations, including what looked like a great win for the Rangers. And I'll miss tomorrow's Flyers game due to more social obligations. Meh.
