If Ovie had that he would have both the Ross and the Richard.

Holy Dung, I can't believe both Crosby and Stamkos got to 51 co-winning the Rocket. Incredible, Crosby seriously has done it all now.

I was watching this last night, thinking, those guys could be unbeatable if Luongo is hot.
Just incredible game by the Sedins. And what a goal...

Best line in the league, easily. Even Ovie/Backstrom can't compete with that kind of chemistry.

This is the best goal this year. As a matter of fact, this is also the best play of the year. Just unbelievable skill on this play.

I know I have negative bias toward the Sedins, but let's see him pull that stuff in the playoffs. Was there any real need to go between the legs other than to hot dog it? When Vermette did it it was out of necessity -- the only way he could get the stick and the puck above the goal line to put it in. When Malik did it it was in a shoot out. What was the reason here? Calgary is out of the playoffs and were already being embarrassed enough.

Too much for what I'd care to give up - Cowen, Elliott and Michalek probably, to start.

I thought I'd throw this in here since it's not thread worthy just funny.

The star player and "50 goal" man that SJ got in the trade they clearly won according to "experts" didn't even hit 40 goals this season while playing with Marleau and Thornton all season.

Well, you see, the going go tough, like most here predicted. The style of play out West is quite different. How many goals did Dany get in the Finals?

I wonder if he needs one more season of sub 50 or even sub 40 before they stop calling him the 50 goal man. For the contract he has he is way overpaid for what he brings. 39 goals and 82 points? Alfie was more than a point a game and Spezza was close with 57 points in 60 games.

more importantly, he merely matched last year's goal totals. 82 pts is nice, but weren't they annointing this as the coming out party for Heatley? That he'd have career highs? yeah, no.

Same 'experts' who probably predicted the sens would miss the playoffs

And that the Leafs would finish above the Sens.

Sometimes I wonder...

They still stand by those predictions though. The Sens are still considered a huge surprise and only got where they did due to some magic on the part of Clouston.

Not sure how they defend the Leafs prediction other than they way underachieved.

Diddle, I owe Neely a 24 because of the Leafs. I thought they'd be a lot better. Closer to 8th than 15th or whatever disgraceful position they ended up in.

And to think, Boston Bruin fans are excited about 2 things now: playing the Sabres and the Lottery tonight. General Hockey Talk - Injuries, signings, factoids + other news from around the league - Page 6 489887

I just got back from Thrashers practice facility where players
and physicals and exit interviews. I talked to most of the players
(missed a few I hope to get tomorrow) so that should keep us going while
the NHL is in the playoffs.

Slava Kozlov pointed to the coaching staff for the reason the
Thrashers failed to make the playoffs. He certainly played his final
game, after eight seasons with the franchise, on Saturday night. His
parting words were biting. I will let you take what you want from what
he said. Here are some of his quotes:

* “Every year you guys ask the same question [why did Thrashers miss
the playoffs]. To me, this was the best team in 11 years of the
organization. This franchise had the best players. Right now, they can
not blame [Ilya] Kovalchuk or [Slava] Kozlov. They have to take
responsibility, because I think ownership did everything right, signed
good players, they have a good goalie, good defense — but something is
missing. I think we are missing from the coaching staff. Looks like they
have fun, but unfortunately in the NHL you have to work. You have to
prepare for every game. There are lots of good teams in the NHL and you
think if you are a good team if you see the roster. That doesn’t work in
this league. You have to do homework and work hard. I think I can put a
big question mark that they weren’t preparing.”

* “I worked with good coaches. It’s not about me. I don’t think I
deserved how they treated me this year, but I don’t want to complain.
Whatever happened, has happened. It’s not my fault or Kovy’s fault that
we are not in the playoffs.”

* “I think I’m a winner. If we make playoffs then I can say yes coach
made the right decision to bench me and don’t play me. Right now I
think he didn’t play me, we didn’t make playoffs. I feel pretty good. I
played here for eight years. Nothing against the team or the
organization. It’s just between me and the coach. I have lots of friends
and I have a lot of respect for this team.”

* “It’s just between me and coach. I don’t want to say any bad thing
about coach, but I don’t have any good thing to say.”

* “I felt pressure since training camp. Coach told me he has pressure
from upstairs. I talked to [GM] Don [Waddell], he said he never talked
to the coach. Somebody is lying. I don’t want to know what happened and
who is lying. I feel like I don’t deserve to be treated like that. Right
now, it’s over. The last game, I have lots of support from the fans. I
don’t know maybe it was because I’m not coming back next year or it’s my
last game but it was nice last night.”

* “This system, for two years they tell us it’s going to work but
unfortunately everybody knows what we are going to do. Our breakouts, we
make two, three passes in our zone and we don’t beat anybody. I saw
that in the New Jersey game. New Jersey just waited in the neutral zone
and we make two or three passes and make one mistake in neutral zone and
boom, they counter attack us. …

“I’m very positive (this group of players could win under a different
system). It’s not the system, but the way they feel the game. We lost
lots of games by one goal and I feel when it’s a tight game, like
one-goal or tie game, you have to start playing two or three lines.
Nothing against players like [Chris Thorburn], [Eric Boulton] or [Marty
Reasoner], but to get the feel of the game you have to use your key
players more. When it’s 5-1, you can play everybody but when it’s a tie
game you can judge a good coach from the great coach. The great coach
sees how the team is playing, who has to play right now, what do you
need to change right now. Not after the game or before. I think we
missed that part.”

To be fair, I wanted to talk to Anderson after the interview with
Kozlov. I was told he would not speak today and would be available
Monday. I will talk to him then.
