Man. That was a good win.
nice thread, Kayla.
Watch out Eastern Conference. We have a legit claim as the 2nd best team in the league this year(took Chicago to overtime of game 7) and we're coming for you!
Ok, probably not, unless we fix the defense. But it's gonna be fun to watch some new teams and bring back some old rivalries(Toronto, Boston, Montreal).
nothing new is changing within Eastern Conference where the Penguins are, except that Columbus has joined the mix, other than that, nothing new or any new rivals lol and I believe Winnipeg moved over to the Western Conference.
Tie Domi and Warren Rychel's sons getting drafted today makes me feel old, I can even had Popeye Jones's kid getting drafted by the Preds to that list too.

Is the title of this thread really necessary? In another thread posters are concerned how the negative posts reflect on Carrie, you don't think the title of this thread won't reflect on her???? Carrie is known as a person who doesn't regularly swear and yet we have to look at a title with a derogatory term and swear word for women?????
What's wrong with the title of the thread? I don't see a problem with NHL thread (a full season!) 2013-2014
Marty Brodeur getting to announce the Devils drafting his son was cool.
Heard about Alfie to the Red Wings. Say a prayer for Sens fans.
Wonder what happened with Alfie and Sens management. wow
It will be weird seeing Vinny Lacavilier in a different uniform and particuliarly a Philly one.
and Sens pull a trade for Bobby Ryan right after Alfie leaves. hm.
It's like a feeding frenzy today around the league.
Don't surprise me Iginla went to Boston, but I'm surprised at the 6 million they paid for him for just one year. And knew Matt Cooke was going to leave too, since he's with Minnesota now, but did not see us signing Scuderi back to us after being in LA for 4 years. But I'm happy to see him back in a Penguins uniform. I'm happy that we signed the players I wanted them to re-sign or extend their contracts.
If he can stay healthy the Weiss signing could be a really nice one for the Wings.
While not the biggest news from Ottawa today, the Sens picked up Bobby Ryan from Anaheim, who a few years ago lost to Mike Fisher in a Predator-Duck fight lol
The Sens essentially offered Alfie a blank cheque. They were willing to spend money on him, I don't think that was the problem. I think what it comes down to is they're not willing to spend that kind of money on other stronger players to support him.
This whole situation is so rough. I'm furious about how it happened, and how screwed over the Sens were. But I hope he gets a Ray Bourque kind of ending.
Or that the Sens win the cup.
Still tons of respect for Alfie, but lost a little bit of it on Friday.
