    Ahem...#87 might have something to say about that.

    ? Did I miss something?

    Best vision from 1st overalls in last 10 years? Crosby and it's not close?

    Overrated Sarcasm

    I forgot Sid was 2005, my bad Laugh1 And you bolded Duchene so I was kinda confused

    I guess last night, up by three goals, Lindy Ruff called a timeout with like 15 seconds, and then had Scott on the ice. They haven't forgotten Lucic running over Miller.

    Yes he is huge.. but he can't play. His skills are his fists. He plays about on average 3.5 min a game. You can't play 4 lines using him for his 5 shifts a game. At the end of the short season the Sabres may pay for that with some overworked players.

    They have tough enough guys in Kaleta (I hate that guy), Foligno, Orr.. why do they waste a space on a goon. Not many teams are going that way now... was that a good move for them. They got him because of Boston? Who else is going to fight that guy?

    But yes, the next game will be good between the Bruins & the Sabres.

    I just hope Ruff doesn't send Scott after Karlsson they way Torts sent Boyle after him last season. We don't have anyone to fight Scott... I would not want to risk an injury to Neil to find out.

    Boston and Buffalo just hate each other, haha. Hopefully every team in the NHL just beats the crap out of one another. The way the Bruins plays as well... they will be out of gas come the playoffs.

    Yeah, what a move by Ruff. Pay back Lucic for concussing Miller by sending Kronk out to concuss Thornton. Yeah, that was a lesson Boston won't soon forget Facepalm

    Still, to make sure it doesn't happen, I think Karlsson should do a pre-emptive strike: a slapshot to the windpipe.

    Watch at around the 1:15 mark. Malkin, on the way down after a slash from Staal, clubs him on the helmet with his stick. No penalty was called. I wonder if it'll be looked at.

    Another move I agree with. Hockey is a game of respect unlike a lot of other sports, especially inside the locker room. You live and die with the guys there. Montreal is turning the corner as we speak and will be a team to contend with in short order.

    Yep. Same with Yakupov's challenged mid ice goal celebrations.

    Literally no way Scott could ever catch Karlsson.

    Hockey is a team game, when you separate yourself from the team you look like an idiot.
