I love the Players' Tribune. It's infinitely more insightful than any interview in the history of sports.

"There are guys who are good. There are guys who are great. Then there are guys who make you want to leave the rink and go put your skates on and be like them. Bure was one of those guys."

Really well put. Heyday Lindros was that guy for me.

Loved the Provorov shout-out, seems everybody who has ever played with Provorov understands how great he actually is/will be. If he stays healthy and with the Flyers he could go down as one of our best Dmen ever. Provorov also seems like a born leader, he's got that Timonen leadership it seems where players just respect him and follow his lead. Would love for him to get the C one day even if he's a Ruskie

Great pressure in the first no goals though so I expect to go down early into the second.

Incredible play by G and Couturier to set that up.

Assuming all goes as planned, he'll probably fall in Timonen/Desjardins territory.

And it irks me to this day Timonen doesn't have one second All-Star Team nomination to his credit whereas total shits like Green and Phaneuf earned no shortage of praise at their peak seasons.

By the end of next season, Ovechkin could/should have as many shots on goal as Gretzky. The difference in efficiency, though, is 17.6% (Gretzky) to 12.4% (Ovechkin), or 264.628 goals.

I'm not sure if he's going to be able to overcome it.

Honestly if we just fix our special teams we can make the post season. We look fine when it's 5v5

Which is odd, because up until recently it's been the special teams doing all the heavy lifting.

I've been ignoring them the last 3 games and they win. Maybe I'll keep that up.

I will take the credit. I dropped Elliot in my yahoo keeper league over the weekend.
Elliot and the Flyers win 3 straight on the road after that. because, of course.

Goalies are bigger and can actually move these days though :colbertsmile:

I’m not touching my roster or looking at anything until we can communicate with each other again :colbert:

I hear you. I was talking about my yahoo league. Every move I have made has come back to bite me in the ass in both leagues.
injuries and some poor roster decisions have hurt me. Namestnikov being the main one. Did not see that coming at all.
I am still going to do drop adds. I mean Flyers hasn't even fixed the salaries and the correct cap number ffs. I have to use that roster link in the middle of the page still to view my roster correctly.
I know not many feel bad for me, and that is fine. Just venting here since we cant do it on the board for the league.

That Couturier GWG is the kind of goal I did not think he was able to score. Absolute laser.



Spicy pass by Giroux too.

That pass and goal was absolute insanity. Couldn't believe my eyes on the replay. Hey they won four in a row, and the U.S. isn't completely an irredeemable pile of shit (only mostly). Seems like a good night in america.

Just watched the condensed game, Couturier and Giroux are really fun to watch and I'm glad Konecny got a goal even if it was flukey.
