    People were riding his nuts so hard in my fantasy draft. TBH I'm not sure how he produced like he did in PHO. Never seen him as the elite player he gets billed as so often.

    he once put up back to back playoff shutouts in anaheim as a backup. his reputation really stemmed from that, solid performance in phx behind a defensive system solidified it and he's never been placed in a vacuum (ie philly w/o pronger) to prove his worth before.

    i never thought he was hot stuff, especially when he came out with his "im not playing in winnipeg if the coyotes move" thing. then you hear him get pimped as the best UFA, dumb organization with goaltending issues trades for his rights, then bryz laughs all the way to the bank.

    that being said, even without bryzgalov, philly did well to get schenn + voracek + couturier + simmonds. was couturier a draft pick part of the richards/carter deals?

    Wow. All the Canadian teams are just... BAD right now. Okay, the Leafs are playing decently, but no one's buying that.

    Related note, Tim Connolly is supposed to return tonight. Over / under on how long he lasts?

    Fuck my life in re: pool. Jets and Flyers are playing it's somehow 9-8 Jets. 17 goals. I have Ladd and Giroux. 2 points between them. SERIOUSLY!? Even Blake fucking Wheeler has 3 points.

    What the hell was up with that Flyers Thrashers game? No one felt like playing defense or stopping the puck?

    Caps finally lost. Too much to ask for them to go undefeated for the regular season. The Oilers have some really good young players, but the Caps absolutely dominated that game 5 on 5. Shame so much of the game was played with a man advantage. Some lame calls and non-calls both ways.

    Yup. Oilers definitely didn't deserve to win that one. I loved the penalty where the dude threw the puck. I mean, how fucking stupid are you? It looked like he was playing horseshoes.

    I had the TSN broadcast on, and I couldn't stand the broadcasters hyping up RN-H at what seemed like every possible moment. Really annoying.

    If anyone is deserving of hype right now it's him. No one thought he was NHL ready so I think most of the buzz is a function of him proving everyone wrong.

    Gee thanks Oilers Homer. No, for everyone who isn't an Oil fan it's unbelievably annoying. TSN are pretty terrible but not as bad as Mark Lee and the CBC guys.

    What else are they supposed to talk about when the Oilers are playing? They don't really have any other major storylines...I could see your point if they were filling up sportscentre with RNH talk but to complain about the hype while he's playing is just odd.
