    Oilers 3rd jersey = bad. Very, very bad. Very bad.

    Sabres 50th anniversary jersey: good, very good.

    Sabres returning to royal blue in the 20/21 season = GET THAT SHIT IN MY VEINS RIGHT NOW.

    Yeah the utility belt aspect is kinda... eh? It's not the same as the elbow lines which are fine.

    It’s....ok.....I guess.

    I’ve always liked their black third jersey the best. I know, I know. Black jerseys are boring, but I always thought the Jerks’ was pretty sharp.

    It's not the first time the canes have done that style for the waist striping. Their old 3rd jerseys had something similar.

    also nhluniforms is the best website. I spend way too much time there.

    The Athletic has an interesting article by Ian Tulloch in which he tries to look at ways to quantify "toughness" in a hockey player, in ways that actually impact the game. Obviously a lot of it is going to be intangible and hard if not impossible to measure, but one interesting point that was made was with regards to Hits. Individual Hits For (how much a player is giving hits) is not a great measure of effective toughness because if you're skating all over the ice laying a ton of hits it's an indicator that your team isn't in possession of the puck very much while you're on the ice.

    on the flip side, Individual Hits Against tells a different story. If you're getting hit, not only do you have the puck (or just had it), you're hanging on to it in the face of an oncoming hit instead of dumping it/tossing it away. As Tulloch puts it:
    The reason I’m such a fan of the latter is that it fits my definition of what a “tough” hockey player needs to do – take a hit to make the right play. It’s easy to level an opposing defenseman on the forecheck after they get rid of the puck, but it’s brutal taking a hard hit in the corner to help your team maintain puck possession.

    Evolving Wild ( https://evolving-hockey.com/ ) actually has/tracks that stat, and if you filter for Forwards with at least 200 minutes played, there's some interesting names, but nothing that really surprises me

    ezUR0x0.png

    Now just getting hit on its own isn't necessarily a huge selling point, but the players that are up there in hits received while still putting up decent goals and points/60, that's where the magic happens.

    As a Leafs fan I'm pleased to see Trevor Moore both in the top 10, and the first player in the list over 2 points/60, especially since the Leafs have him under contract for $775k for the next two seasons. When you look at it this way, it makes complete sense why Babcock immediately fell in love with him. Of course, right below that you have Nic Dowd, absorbing almost as many hits and putting up even more points/60, and the Caps have him for another 3 years at $750k, which seems like a pretty sweet deal.

    Darren Ferris is predictable almost to the point of comedy, and Darren Dreger is utterly shameless in shilling for Ferris.

    Saw "Seattle Dragons" trending and got concerned because that would be a stupid name for a hockey team. But it's just the XFL team.

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    Hot take from hockey Twitter: "Pierre left to become HC of the Seattle team"

    (not real)

  • FearghaillFearghaill If there is nothing but what we make in this world let us make goodRegistered User regular
    god, between that and Nick Kypreos/Doug MacLean not getting renewed at Sportsnet, it's like an extinction event for hockey dinosaurs

    shame the Cherry rumours were false though

    From what I understand, Pierre will still be on the NBC broadcasts, just not on the ice or doing interviews.

    I imagine when Rielly doesn't have another career year I imagine the media will be all "is he washed up!?"

    Well technically Cici is making more than Gardiner next year so that makes sense.

    Well if I had the money I would buy the coyotes take them away from Glendale. Move the team to Minnesota and pay to build the new stadium
    That solves so many issues with that team

    Minnesota already has the Wild, do they really need two mediocre teams?

    When the hell is Brayden Point going to sign! I think we've done some decent trades and am looking forward to some beefier offense this year but the lack of him signing is really annoying. Our opening preseason is the 17th.

    I know, but as a Tampa fan it's bugging me. Also every post by the Lightning is replied with "You choked in the playoffs" or "Sign Point". Getting tired of both and just ready to start a new season.

    Get used to it now because the choke is all people are going to mention for years to come.
