    The leafs will take the division this year. That's 8 points that we've become accustomed to that probably won't be ours this year.

    Tampa will be tough and most likely to win the Atlantic but leafs will be a handful for any team in their own end

    I did find it interesting that Peter Tessier and todd Cordell pick the leafs to go to the finals.

    It's a good rule -- can't wait to see how many "off side video coaches" get fired this year

    I won't lose hope till that final buzzer, as long as they make the playoffs they have a shot, just have to play a little harder and not rely on talent as much. Defensive depth is a concern for sure, Letang needs to have a nice, healthy season.

    I think the Blues are really, really close. Of course I have been saying that the past two seasons.

    Montreal has more shorthanded goals than evenstrength goals.

    Best post from the GDT: even when the habs have goals disallowed, they can't score more than 2.

    Thankful for Auston Fucking Matthews this thanksgiving.

    Leafs outplayed them for most of the game, the better team won.

    I think people just don't want to be there to see Patrick Kane....

    ....I can't finish the rape joke, it just feels bad.

    Matthews in OT last night reminded me of Sundin scoring his 500th

    As soon as he touched the puck and started moving you knew he was scoring and the game was over

    He traded Forsberg for Erat.

    The man obviously has no fucking idea what he's doing.
