I get that in previous years, we used to lose these kinds of games. People are so used to being negative that they cant be happy with taking two points we didnt deserve and adding them to the bunch of points that we do deserve. When a team trails, they shoot more. When a team gets 2 long 5 on 3s and a 5 minute powerplay, they'll probably have a lot of shots. We won the game anyway. Let's be happy about that!

The Predators just aren't the same without Rinne. Hopefully, the Canadiens can capitalize on the Tuesday and go into the break with an extra two points.

I wonder if the book is out on Ben Bishop, as he has been really average thus far this year. 2.37 GAA and a dismal .911 save %. Is this just a string of bad luck? I hope he continues his poor play tonight :)

That Slovak goalie is also undrafted. Incredible. He went through two drafts!

Duclair has talent but still has a long ways to go to become an NHL regular. He had more than a few puckhog moments during the last few games, and I bet something like that would drive Alain Vigneault up the wall. He played on a line with arguably the two best forwards of the tournament in Reinhart and Domi. Boy am I not happy to be seeing Reinhart in a Sabres uniform for the next decade. He will be Sam F in no time. Nurse really stepped up his game when it mattered. This is the kind of guy Edmonton needs if it eventually makes the playoffs. Gavrikov, the Russian captain, is undrafted. Some players improve from one year to the other but holy smokes, I wonder where this overager will go in the next draft. LA drafted Tanner Pearson as an overager in round 1. I think another team will take this guy in Round 1 too. Timmins should not take any heat for the 2013 NHL draft. De la Rose, Fucale, Andrighetto, Reway, and even McCarron were all excellent picks. I wager no other team had a better day.

The Canadiens are beginning to remind me of the New England Patriots when it comes to ridding themselves of useless players. It's much more difficult in hockey because contracts are guaranteed but Bergevin is showing a deft ability to move deadweight and I think that Emelin may be the next to go with Tinordi taking over that spot providing a physical element. The Canadiens moved up in the draft's 3rd round this past year to grab a hulking physical defenceman. Bergevin knows it's a priority and it will probably be resolved at some point in the near future.

About the McCarron trade, the Knights were very-well positioned to make the Memorial cup this year but had two players stay with their NHL teams, Bo Horvat and Nikita Zadorov. I guess the Hunters figured they were not gonna win the cup this year and set their sights on the future.

"People are so stubborn and can’t admit they’re wrong so they hope he fails just to prove a point. Suck it up people is my advice and admit you were wrong. It’s really not that hard." By the way, this is the answer to 90% of the debates on this forum. Moarbig debate = Check Therrien = Check PK wants out of town and Bergevin and Therrien are ruining him = check And one for nostalgia sake...Zenon Konopka = check

+1 Therrien's record since his return is 99-53-15. (With David Desharnais as number 1 centre!) And people want him fired!

Two of the players he traded for Carter and Richards are top 5 selections! Jack J was acquired in a trade but Brayden Schenn was taken 5th overall. Kings also drafted Thomas Hickey 4th overall but he was a bust. The Kings were terrible for a long time, drafted terribly and kind of lucked into Doughty and Kopitar. The year they drafted Doughty, they drafted defenceman Colten Teubert. Two picks later Ottawa snagged Erik Karlsson. They did pick up Voynov with their early 2nd that year so it wasn't a lost cause, but they whiffed a hell of a lot, especially on defence. They were a bad team until they got a great coach. Quick got hot in the playoffs and we all know the rest. La made the playoffs that year by 1 point. If they miss the playoffs that year, we wouldnt be holding them up as an example team.
