    Yeah but Murray will probably turn it around, Niemi's career should have ended at the buyout :lol: If you're lucky, Penguins will bury him and get a backup worth a crap.

    Our next goalie in line would be Tristan Jarry, who isn't worth a crap yet either. Supposedly a good-looking prospect but not ready for the NHL. Maybe we could trade him to Winnipeg for Steve Mason. :lol:

    Hopefully... guess we'll see what happens :lol:

    I was really surprised when they signed Niemi... and terrified when they started talking about him playing 30+ games this season :lol:

    Yeah Jarry will likely be good but he is not NHL ready yet and sitting the bench as a backup would not be good for his development... Steve Mason :rofl:

    I'd be curious to know how many have been PPGs, and at some point a comparison between last season and this season's PPG %.

    To clarify (since it is too late for me to edit), NOT PPG efficiency, but how many of total goals scored are PPG vs 5-on-5.

    Yep I got what you meant... seems like they are calling significantly more penalties this season in an attempt to increase scoring.

    Only Dallas can find a way to lose to an expansion team in their first game :lol:

    Could be worse, you could have lost 10-1 :rofl:

    Also Fleury having a .978 save percentage last night might have helped too...

    Yeah Fleury won the game for them. Stars plain outplayed them, just had some unfortunate moments.

    Pens actually showed up tonight... 4-0 with half a period left against Nashville.

    Despite the long-standing rivalry it is nice to see Ovi rolling again :yesway:

    Make that 4 goals tonight, 7 in two games. I like hockey first and foremost, so there are players I like on just about every team.

    Nashville had to be licking their chops coming into this game... and got pitched a third scoreless game in a row against the Pens :lol:

    Looks like Kari is still spotting the other teams 2-3 goals every game he plays...


    edit: Kari feeling really generous, spotting 4 goals this game!

    And so it begins... Ian Cole is out indefinitely after taking a puck to the mouth against Nashville :(

    Yeah that was ugly... I figured he was going to be out for a long time when they said there was some jaw damage. Hopefully he makes a full and speedy recovery regardless of when he gets back on the ice.

    There had to be, he couldn't have caught that more perfectly in the mouth if he tried. Definitely one of the uglier ones I have seen.
