    Re: NHL 2013

    Whats going on with the Blues? Last few games I've seen a 6-1 loss and 5-1 loss. I haven't watched the games, just saw the scores, do they have injuries?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Hey, you know who's totally not worth what he gets paid? Rick Nash. Did not understand why the Rangers went after him and I'm positive this doesn't end well five years and $39 million from now.

    Halak is out, but that's it for injuries. In a major funk right now, but I think they'll bounce back. It's almost like that bad penalty call in Detroit let the air out of the balloon because they haven't been the same team since.

    Ya, seems like his style of play and injuries have decreased his abilities. His prime was probably in his younger seasons. Hence why I think no team (including the Rangers) were prepared to give up marquee talent for him. Unfrotunately, his contract number is still a pretty big hinderance.

    I'm always leery of not-terribly-prolific high scorers on bad teams. Basically they get run out on every PP and they're constantly fed the puck and they don't really have to do any work in the corners or get back. To Nash's credit, he's willing to hit and go into the corners, but he's not the lights out scorer they traded for and will be paying for a very long time.

    I think, albeit in a shortened season, the Rangers are among the bigger disappointments thus far.

    They were a good bet for a slow start. Not a lot of young firepower on that team. Their all-out pressure game should be more effective as the season wears on.

    What the heck is going on with my team. It's like after that penalty in Detroit, they've been soft. We've allowed 5 goals three games in a row. I don't think the Blues had more than 3 games all last year where they gave up 5 goals.

    I don't know, but they'd better get back on track soon. The defense has been embarrassing.

    For the record, the last win was the game I attended. Just pass that bit of information on up and see if the team can't manage to make sure I'm in attendance more often. I'd be willing to do my part to help the team.

    I think mostly shows the Blues goalies' are really nothing that special. Elliot is a big guy, covers bottom of the net real well, but if you get him moving, with odd man rushes and such, he doesn't pose much of a challenge. Blues' defense was amazing last year, I expect it to rebound (but hard to imagine it will be up to last year's standards because they were just too good). But their defense makes the goalies, not the other way around.

    Re: NHL 2013

    The Columbus Blue Jackets have let go of GM Scott Howson.


    "Scott Howson is a caring man who gave everything he had to the Columbus Blue Jackets over the past six years," said President of Hockey Operations John Davidson. "This was a difficult decision but one that I thought was in the best interest of moving our hockey club forward. I have enjoyed working with Scott and want to thank him for his service." The Jackets currently have a 4-7-2 record and sit 13th in the Western Conference, but under Howson the club has finished among the bottom 10 teams four times in five years. Feb 12 - 8:25 PM

    Source: TSN.ca

    Per Rotoworld.
    "I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14

    For starters, I'm happy with the Blues win, but what's everyone's take on the Karlsson injury? Matt Cooke's skate takes out his Achilles and people seem to have mixed opinions as to the intent or not on Cooke's part. It does look pretty ugly on the replay and regardless of the intent it's a shame to see a player of his caliber go down like that.

    Re: NHL 2013

    I meant to mention this yesterday but the Blue Jackets got a heck of a talent evaluater in Jarmo Kekalainen. This guy was one of those gems I thought a team would get if they ever took a chance on him as GM. He was the brains behind the Blues draft and development system for 8 years I believe. John Davidson and Doug Armstrong relied heavily on his advice and the Blues were excellent during his time here at getting gems later in the draft and finding those kind of players that turn out to be diamond in the roughs. He also has a pipeline to European hockey and seems to do well at scouting European players. In my opinion, this is a great hire for the Blue Jackets and I wouldn't be shocked if they're a major mover and shaker after a couple of drafts.
