    Sabres at 10 in a row.  

    Been a long bunch of years.  This is terrific.  The Skinner-Eichel-Reinhart/Pominville line is lethal
    Read the ESPN article this AM on 'Worst to First' Sabres and thought of you and other long-suffering Sabres fans.
    Good for you all.  Deserve some good play after this rotten stretch
    Thanks.  Its great that the arena is lively again.  It has been a crypt in recent years, which is strange because the seats have been filled.

    I have not been paying attention.  Buffalo is leading the conference, Dahlin's stats are good.  Is he impressive?
  • MayDay10MayDay10 Posts: 9,668
    Leading the league! (im not betting it lasts, but they are banking points for playoff qualification).

    Dahlin is looking anazing right now.  Every game he looks better and better and he may have played his best game last night.  Its hard to believe he is 18 and wont be 19 until April 2019.

    Here is him in overtime defending on Karlsson, another Swedish D-man he was in awe of/star struck in their previous meeting



    then on the other end of the ice, right after, here he is, setting up the winning goal, while making a behind the back pass to himself on the way

    And this goal by Ristolainen last night....  it was basically right in front of our seats.

    He looks good.  It's good to see the Sabres find some winning ways.  Make it more interesting when long-suffering teams start to put it together...Toronto as well.  Should make the leafs rivalry better...

    Yeah, I like it.  Especially when its a hockey market, like Winnipeg and Calgary too.  I always root for Edmonton as well.  Might be a changing of the guard from Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Los Angeles... and soon Washington.  

    I still think the Sabres are 1.75 seasons away from their 'contention window'.

    That's awesome.  We checked out a game there earlier this month against the Senators when we were in town for the Bears-Bills game.  It was a good time...that place has to be rocking lately

    Seattle hockey in 2021.  Arizona moving to the Central.
    I've been waiting for decades! I cursed the old Sonics owner (and the team) when he renovated the Key Arena to be basketball only in the late 80's. The NHL wanted to be in Seattle then, and would have awarded us a franchise if we'd had a venue. Well, we're about to have a world class venue, and we exceeded all expectations for season ticket deposits, so bring it on. Bummer that it won't be 2020, but that gives us plenty of time to get the new arena done, build the organization, do some scouting and build a roster. Now for a name. I just hope it isn't something like the Sockeyes.

    :lol: seems better than some of the suggestions that are floating around the city. I'd prefer we embrace our legacy and be the Seattle Metropolitans. We're already engraved on the Stanley Cup. First American team on it. We can do it again 105 years later.

    Pretty cool.  Sucks for Arizona...they're getting hosed being pushed to the central.  So much more travel for them now.

    I suspect they might be Houston-bound anyway

    Yeah good point.  The chances of them still being in Arizona then are pretty slim.  Is Houston really the top contender for them?

    I really thought Moosejaw had a shot.  You haven't lived until you've been to Moosejaw.  Oh well, NHL's loss.

    had a band trip there once as a teen. it was....uneventful.....save for the "hand in the warm water" trick we pulled on one of our hotel mates.

    the problem is, Saskatchewan does nothing for the television footprint, and neither does Quebec City, and most of those people are already NHL consumers as it is.  Houston is the 4th largest city in the US with many potential eyes to chase. 
    Although, I suspect Quebec City might someday get the Panthers (or maybe even the Senators, lol).  The problem is, the NHL wants a more wealthy owner.

    Phoenix is the eastern most city of all the Pacific division teams. I thought maybe Edmonton was the easternmost, but ya know, the earth is round, not flat like a map.  But I too figure they won't stay in Phoenix too much longer.
    Phoenix 112*04' W
    Edmonton 113*30' W
    Calgary 114*04' W

    Yes, but you would figure that any chance Arizona would have, would be helped by fostering rivalry with driving distance teams like Vegas, LA, and Anaheim.

    My Jackets cants hold a lead to save their asses. Up 2-0 on NYI, loss. Up 4-1 on Calgary, loss. Tonight up 3-1 on Philly, now tied at 3. Sanheim scored the last two Philly goals which are his first 2 of the season.

    Man the Wings are surprising me with each game- no way did I expect the turnaround.  I loved last nights game...and of course had to point it out to my Bro inlaw (Major Leaf fan).... They, like the Jackets KC, have been blowing their leads as well.   It drives me nuts too.

    I hope Mickey Redmond didn't jinx them with all the playoff talk lol

    I'm stoked, the wife got me a Frk#42 DRW t-shirt for Xmas... man that guys got a wicked shot and needs to be played more.   With all the injuries I hope he gets more ice time.

    Hamilton 9-13-05; Toronto 5-9-06, Toronto 8-21-09, Toronto 9-12-11, Hamilton 9-15-11....

    Every Blackhawks game should just start at the 10 minute mark of the 1st with the score 2-0 other team.  I mean, that IS how every Blackhawks game starts, so just cut the first 10 minutes off the clock and go from there.
