  1. I've thrown down the gauntlet to my league mates that they need to throw $5 in a jar any time I beat one of them head-to-head in SV this season. I have Ziegler. That's it. I figure I can afford to bring the beer to the draft next season. Maybe a case of Carling Black Label, if they're lucky.
  2. I'm not sure how anyone can say (or write) with a straight face that the expansion rules didn't favor the Knights. Just look at last year's rules compared with past expansion drafts: 1992 (Ottawa, Tampa Bay) 14 skaters, 2 goalies 1993 (Anaheim, Florida) 9 forwards, 5 defensemen, 1 goalie 1998-2000 (Nashville, Atlanta, Columbus, Minnesota) 9 forwards, 5 defensemen and 1 goalie ... OR 7 forwards, 3 defensemen and 2 goalies 2017 (Vegas) 7 forwards, 3 defensemen, 1 goalie ... OR 8 skaters, 1 goalie Also, in past expansion drafts teams didn't have to deal with a salary cap.
  3. I'm guessing TV is driving it. HNIC surely wanted the Leafs on both Saturdays, so there would need to be a two-day break sometime this week either between 3-4 or 4-5.
  4. Good call. The Wilds had one goal in a four-game sweep by the Ducks in '03. I couldn't figure out how to show that on Hockey Reference because I couldn't get it to do a single series rather than an entire postseason. That Sens-Flyers is the record for five games. The Bruins are on opposite ends of the other two records ... Outscored 17-5 in six games by the Leafs in '51, then outscored the Canucks 22-8 in the 2011 SC Finals.
  5. Also, the Kings were the 11th team to score as few as three goals in a postseason (not just one series) of at least four games, although Chicago did it last year against Nashville. Amazingly the Flyers scored just two goals in five games in 2002 against Ottawa and Patrick Lalime. They won Game 1 in OT 1-0, which means they scored one regulation goal in five games ... Lost three straight games 3-0, then 2-1 in OT in Game 5.
  6. Quick's 1.55 GAA and .947 SP were the best ever for a goalie who was swept in a four-game series, per Hockey Reference. Take away the two goals in 21 seconds Vegas scored late in Game 3 and his GAA was 1.11.
  7. Seventh OT, delayed penalty on Lumbus and Orpik misses Ovie's pass back to the point and it slides down the ice into an empty net.
  8. It's rare (nearly impossible) for me to fall asleep during a late game but my wife threw me a surprise 50th yesterday and I passed out in the third period at 1-1. Vegas, unbelievable.
  9. I had to drop Melancon since Donaldson became my fifth DL already this season with 21-man rosters (S. Perez, Odor, Samardzija)
  10. How many Bryant boatloads would that be?
