    To bad to see that on Schmaltz. He's a good young player. All the best to him in recovery.

    Why does it seem there are so many crap teams this year? Other than the top 10 or so, there really isn't much of a middle anymore, just crap. Is it the crap coaches and even crappier GM's or is something else at play? I used to enjoy the parody in the league but I have't seen it as much anymore.

    surprised Price didn't get the 'flu' just before the break.
    misses same amount of games, but no salary lost via suspension

    Brent Burns on a 90 point pace as a 33 year old. what a beast.

    Even worse, that is not a particularly dangerous schedule.

    Once their other lines started slumping, that seemed to be it.

    That said, there are a lot of 1 goal games there.

    There are 5 good teams, a bunch of mediocre ones and then utter crap. It isn't really exciting.

    Down Goes Brown is still making stuff, but you're right, I haven't seen it on here as much lately.

    Kooch slowed down a lot in the second half last year. Wonder how he does after this.

    They had 11 one-goal games prior to Dec. 8 (when their shit run seems to have started). They did lose 4 of 5 games between Oct 24 and Nov 2 and all those losses were by a goal.

    It's a bit of luck but only having one line capable of doing anything on a consistent basis will eventually bite you. The rest of their forward corps behind Landeskog-MacK-Rantanen looks like something the Oilers throw out there.

    (1) I think the fact that they are made from recycled ocean trash is pretty awesome.
    (2) I like the look of guys wearing their teams emblem during all-star games. Looks better to me than when they all wear an "all-star" jersey and frankly, I'm WAY more likely to buy one to wear to games for my team.
