Around the NHL / Re: Penguins hire GM Rutherford, fire coach Bylsma

Wow, the Oilers would only be lucky enough to pick up the scraps the Pens just got rid of.

Byslma would be an excellent associate coach (he is better than Eakins will ever be) and Shero would have been exceptional as well.

Oilers Discussion / Who should the Oilers Draft with 3rd overall pick
« on: April 23, 2014, 02:34:35 AM »
Its probably one of these four -- > Bennet, Draisaitl, Reinhart, Ekblad

If Ekblad is gone I would pick Bennett.

I see it:

1. Panthers - Ekblad
2. Sabres     - Reinhart
3. Oilers       - Bennett
4. Flames     - Dal Colle
5. Islanders - Draisaitl

OKC Barons / Re: Barons could clinch 8th spot tonight
« on: April 18, 2014, 08:22:43 PM »
They did clinch with a 4-3 OT win.   :)

C.J. Stretch netted the game-winning goal in overtime as the Oklahoma City Barons clinched a berth in the 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs by defeating the Iowa Wild 4-3 Friday night at the Cox Convention Center.

Trailing the Wild late by a score of 3-2, Oklahoma City’s Roman Horak scored the game-tying goal with just 2:01 left to play in the third period to force overtime. With the game tied at the end of regulation, the Barons picked up one standings point, which was enough to secure a playoff spot with earlier losses Friday by both Rockford and Charlotte.

Anton Lander assisted on all three Barons goals, with Andrew Miller having two assists on the night as well.

Oklahoma City got on the scoreboard twice late in the first period. The first goal came when Miller picked up a loose puck in the high Iowa slot and promptly tipped a pass to his left, where a trailing Austin Fyten whipped a wrist shot past Wild goalie Johan Gustafsson at 13:24 for a 1-0 Barons lead.

David Musil added the second Barons goal of the first period, receiving a Lander pass near the right circle and sending an upended puck through the legs of Gustafsson at 18:19 to put Oklahoma City in front 2-0.

Iowa found its stride midway through the second period. At 11:35 of the frame, Wild winger Brad Winchester sent a turnaround backhand pass to Tyler Graovac in the Barons’ slot who fired a shot past Bachman to cut the Barons’ lead to 2-1.

Thirty-nine seconds later, Graovac shuffled a pass from behind the Barons net to Jamie MacQueen who ripped a one timer from the left circle that snuck under Bachman to tie the game at two.

Iowa took the lead late in the third, when Graovac threw a centering pass that caromed off the skate of Barons defenseman Brandon Davidson to Iowa’s Kurtis Gabriel who chipped the puck past a sprawling Bachman to give the Wild a 3-2 lead at 15:08.

Horak’s game-tying goal came on Lander’s third assist of the game, and Stretch’s goal in overtime secured the win and two official standings points for the Barons.

Sheesh rare for hockey players to play the cocaine game. I hope he sorts himself out.

Drunk, high at 5:30 A.M. , you would think their season was over.

Around the NHL / Gillis Gone
« on: April 08, 2014, 02:41:54 PM »
Canucks relieve Gillis of his President and GM duties.

"On behalf of my entire family, I would like to sincerely thank Mike Gillis for his hard work and the many contributions he made on and off the ice during his tenure," said Aquilini in a statement on Tuesday. "The Vancouver Canucks had success under Mike's leadership, and we nearly reached our ultimate goal; but I believe we have reached a point where a change in leadership and new voice is needed.

"I also want to thank our fans for their support for the Vancouver Canucks through a difficult and frustrating season. We haven't met their expectations or ours. We are committed to bringing the Stanley Cup to Vancouver for our fans and we will continue to do everything possible to reach that goal."

This is a big game for OKC, they are winning 4-3 with about 15 minutes left in game. Shots at this pint are 37-17 for Barons.

If you would like to listen.

Listening to radio is kind of fun :)

Fedun sets up Curtis Hamilton with 34 seconds left in game, he makes it  5-4, Davidson hits the open net to make it 6-4.

Barons are in 7th place. Woot!

Thumbs up Barons and Todd Nelson.

Ovechkin got his FIRST even strength goal in 17 games., just wow! I don't think he had an even strength point in March, just wow! You just can't win with a player like him if he is your leader, and takes all the cap space.

We are looking good again, there seems to be a LOT more effort in these last games for some strange reason. I really like what Larsen is bringing up front, this guy should get a permanent spot up front.
