    The fact that you have Crosby to begin with is a joke.

    As for calls? I haven't watched the Pens enough this year to really say if they've gotten a ton of calls in their favor or not but I do know that Malkin dodged a suspension a few weeks ago because he is Evgeni Malkin.

    You're not the douchiest team in the league though. Flyers/Habs/Canucks can battle it out for that title.

    Yeah I will agree with you on the Malkin play, he should have gotten a suspension on that one.

    The Sabres still need to finish the season strong, but tonight was a great start with a dominating performance over the Capitals. Ryan Miller was standing on his head out there, much like he has been for the last month and a half. The offense was also solid with 5 goals.

    2 gimmes and 3 tough games.

    Washington's road is a little bit easier but every time they look like they're about to tear ................ up, they throw up a stinker.

    I'll be rooting for you guys to pass the Sens.

    Yeah I hate the Pens more. Alot of it has to do with the fact that the Pens have ruined several Rangers seasons (where as the Rangers have never beaten the Pens when its really mattered)....the fact that I've felt the Pens have gotten preferntial referee treatment in two different eras, Mario/Jagr and now Cindy/Malkin....I dispise Crosby and think he's a crybaby who gets away with alot of stuff on the ice.

    I think the Buffalo Sabres get 8th in the East.

    Who are you got in the West Ben?

    I think the San Jose Sharks win the Pacific Division and the Nashville Predators, Chicago Blackhawks, Dallas Stars and Los Angeles Kings getting in.

    Ugh I don't even want to think about that. Hopefully whoever is 6th beats whoever is 3rd and then the Bruins play the Pens in the 2nd round.

    Depends on how much longer you go the lottery route.As it stands right now, your core is pretty bad. One prospect won't change that.

    You're in a better position than the Leafs though, so at least you have that going for you.

    To be honest, I'm really enjoying the fact that we're even having this debate (who's in worse shape Toronto or Montreal?)

    And that seems fairly likely given that Florida has a -19 goal differential.

    WTF? I thought the Barclay's center couldn't fit an NHL rink, let alone be ready RIGHT AWAY with an available ice surface

    Oh its no debate, Toronto is ................ed way worse than Montreal. I don't think Price is that good, but hes miles ahead of Reimer. That alone puts them in a much better position going forward.

    Both teams need to address leadership issues. Both of these teams remind me of the mess that the Rangers were the year that Torts took over, the difference being that our Goalie was good enough to have us in the playoff hunt.

    Even bigger joke is that the Devils, with their 14 shoot out wins will be lucky enough to draw that 6th seed.

    Then again, if things go as they should the Rangers would draw the Devils in round 2. No Bruins or Pens en route to the ECF? Works for me.

    How much do you think "Burkie" is going to be throwing at Parise trying to get him to Toronto? 8 per? 9?

    He should try to get Ryan Miller. You build a team from the back. Goalie -> blue line -> forwards.

    Why would Buffalo trade him? Let alone to a team within their division?

    Cory Schneider is the guy Toronto should be look at going after. Hes a really good goalie who deserves a chance to start.

    There ya go. I knew I was forgetting a FA goalie. Plus that will leave Vancouver with Luongo alone for the next 9 years

    Hes a RFA so Toronto would have to either trade for him or offer sheet him.

    The UFA class for Goalies is awful this upcoming off season. Vokun is at the top of the list (at 35 years old coming off of an injury plagued season) along with 42 year old Dwayne Roloson.

    Toronto is ................ed

    They should have just not traded Tuukka Rask for Andrew Raycroft.

    If Boston can sign Parise or Suter and we need the cap space, I'd trade them Tim Thomas, and we're in the division. (Of course Bruin fans hate when I suggest things like that).

    Never really been a fan of chasing need. They should push for Schultz and use Gardiner as a recruiting tool there. It's sort of building from the back, in the way that if your defense is strong enough, and you deploy a solid defensive system, you protect your goaltender. See what Edmonton would pay for Phaneuf since no defenseman in their right mind is signing there, and then go hard after Parise AND Suter, even if you have to overpay for both.

    That takes any real or imagined leadership responsibility away from Kessel.

    Wait, does Mike Komisarek really have a NMC? WOW. I'd have had him in a Marlies uniform months ago.

    It once again disgusts me to see teams being rewarded for being in the #6 spot. Flyers are 4 points ahead of the Devils for #5. What is the Flyers reward going to be? They will get to face the 2nd best team in the East, either the Rangers or Penguins in the 1st Round. What do the 6th seeded Devils get? They get to play the Southeast winner, likely the Panthers, who very well could have the 7th or 8th best record in the East?

    In the West what reward will the Redwings and Predators get for being better than the Blackhawks and being the 3rd and 4th best teams in the West? They get to play each other in the 1st round. Meanwhile the Blackhawks will get to play the Pacific winner which has 4 teams separated by 1 point. So it is likely that just 1 point will be the difference from being the Division winner and the 3rd seed, or not making the playoffs. So good for the Blackhawks and Devils. They certainly deserve to be rewarded for having a lesser season.

    Just look at how goal differential for that 3rd place team sticks out for both conferences:

    East:
    #1: +41
    #2: +63
    #3: -19
    #4: +56
    #5: +28

    West:
    #1: +52
    #2: +44
    #3: +1
    #4: +48
    #5: +17
