    Waiting for the Winnipeg Jets/Edmonton Oilers game to start.

    I find it hilarious that the city is nicknamed Winterpeg, yet they can't play due to the sun.

    Johnny Boychuk is complaining about Sid the God's clean hit on him last night. He said that anyone who did that to Crosby would be suspended, but I guess he doesn't pay attention at all. Dubinsky is the only one to ever get a suspension, and he blatantly cross-checked Crosby in the neck to earn it. Jason Blake once got a $1,000 fine for spearing him off a faceoff nearly 10 years ago. Other than that, nothing. Not even when Downie put him in a figure four leglock that one time.

    Great hit followed by a goal by Sid.

    The stupid Leafs finally won. So yay.

    Defense still needs a lot of work though. If they get that sorted soon, look out.

    Jets injuries so far:

    Little, Stafford, Perreault, Matthias, Armia, Myers, Stuart + Trouba refusing to sign. Five forwards who were all on opening night roster, plus three regular defensemen from last year. Man the Jets are exciting to watch. So many third period comebacks already (even if they lost in OT to Washington, and with 30 secs left to Washington).

    Going to be a fun year watching these young kids play and develop!

    I can't believe the Habs lost 10-0. It's all PK Subban's fault! Al Montoya is a trooper.

    Yeah, that Montreal/Columbus score is something else. I laid down for a nap last night and woke up after the game was over. To say "the wheels fell off" is an understatement.

    That concussion did nothing to deter Sidney Crosby from continuing his World Cup of Hockey play. This is almost close to his pre-injury self in 2010. The inclusion of Hagelin on his line only makes him more lethal right now. In just eight games, he's the league leader in goals and quickly added himself back to the Art Ross discussion. Not only that, but Murray is holding strong in a SCF rematch right now.

    It will be interesting how Piss gets rid of Fleury. Apparently he has to waive his no move/trade clause to be drafted to Vegas.

    The Fleury situation is one I'm already sick of. You are correct as that is one of the options to move him. There's about three or four options. One is to trade to one of the teams on his list, however, he could have fucked that over during the summer by putting the approved list of teams that don't need a goalie. The other is to bribe Las Vegas with picks to not pick Matt Murray. I can't see that working as why would someone pass over a franchise goaltender in his early 20s. The last one is to buy him out of his contract.

    Rutherford has been stubborn since his injured goalie situation with Carolina. I just hope Pittsburgh doesn't make a dumbass decision, and trade Murray. The media here is awful when it comes to Fleury. He's honestly treated a god, and constantly reminded he's the nicest guy in the world. Steigy was calling Murray's first game, and said "Fleury has been phenomenal, Murray has been solid." I guess he's unaware that Fleury's stats have dropped drastically since the start of the season.

    From what I have read Piss can protect Murray and Vegas can select Fleury as long as Fleury accepts. But, I might be wrong. Who's knows if Vegas even wants Fleury. Decent cap hit, but he has slowed down tremendously.

    Although Rick The Dick has had a solid start to the season it will be foolish for the Rangers to protect him.

    By the way useless McIlrath has finally been exiled by the Rangers. Could have selected Tarasenko...

    Trouba finally signed earlier today. Two year bridge deal, $2.5 mill this year, $3.5 mill next year with arbitration rights. I expect that the Jets will still try to trade him before the expansion draft. I'm just happy to have him back, he's a fantastic defenseman.

    Man right now it sucks to be a Vancouver Canucks fan, seriously nine game losing streak. Hopefully they'll turn things around with a win over the Rangers tonight.

    @RT, is this what it feels like being a Toronto Maple Leafs fan the majority of the time?

    Aside from their few bright spots over the past 15-ish years where they actually made the playoffs, yeah...pretty much.

    I personally like the position the Canucks are in. Makes it more likely that there could be a deal to be made with Benning. You know how those trades go for him.

    The Penguins broke the Leafs, and they are gassed. You could see this coming from around the midway point of the first. At Sully Dojo, they are not trained to be merciful.

    Murray is playing like a god too.

    My only complaint about the game is the refs so obviously favouring Crosby, but that's every game. Corrado got called for something Crosby did earlier that led to the 2nd goal.

    However that wouldn't have changed the outcome. Maybe the Leafs dig deep and keep it close enough to force OT but the way they played defensively (fuck you, Hunwick) wasn't going to hold up through the 3rd period. Probably still would've ended up 3-1 on an empty netter or something.

    Pittsburgh looks like a team that can repeat this year if they stay healthy. Just smothering offensively. And Murray is such a joy to watch.

    Andersen played really well tonight too, which was nice. He's found his form despite Toronto's defense being ass.

    Jets literally have half the Moose team called up.

    Injured:

    Stafford/Little/Armia
    Connor/Perreault/Matthias

    Stuart/Myers

    Not a bad 2nd and 3rd line. Also decent bottom pair defense. With the injury bugs hitting all the vets, plus Connor, at least lets the young kids play!

    That was such a shit show. I hated everything about it, team name/logo included. They should be embarrassed.

    Best comment I saw on Twitter: "That logo looks like one of the generic "create a team" logos you get on video games." So true.

    "Golden Knights?" Nevada is called The Silver State. It's even on their fucking license plates. It's a terrible name.

    Vegas Golden Knights. Literally anything would have been better. Someone threw out calling them The Flamingos as a joke on reddit (even designed pink uniforms and everything) and even that was better.

    EDIT: Found it. BarDown even did a story about it on TSN: http://www2.tsn.ca/bardown/Story.asp...s%3F&id=587426
