If a team that's been to the stanley cup final the last two seasons has been floating around between ninth and eleventh place for fifty games is considered to be managing pretty damn well, then I don't really know what to say.

That's because you can't factor in the losses they've had and how they've managed to stay in the race...if they were in the Eastern Conference they'd have an easy playoff spot. A lot of good teams have done much worse due to injuries than Detroit. Pittsburgh last year barely got home ice (they lucked out with that NYR-Philly game which came down to a controversial goal), where as the season before they dominated and easilly got home ice. They didn't have nearly the level of injuries that Detroit had this season, and I would say that Detroit has managed well for what they were dealt. You're comparing this season to their 240592485098 other dominant ones where shit didn't really go wrong that often, not to the fact that they had a ton of key injuries. I feel like I'm repeating myself, and that your next post is just going to repeat yourself.

Now that NJ picked up Kovalchuk, I'm really wondering what in the fuck Darryl Sutter has in mind for the Flames. He must have something up his sleeve, because if he intends on leaving the team the way it stands right now he's out of his goddamn mind.

I'm hoping he goes for Lecavalier.

Flyers inconsistent, uninspired, lazy, underachieving play.

Oh hold on thats no surprise with this core.

Crazy how Jokinen, Giguère, Phaneuf and Kovalchuk all move in a few days! Whos next?

Ray Whitney will go somewhere are at some point. A decent rental player... rumors have him go to the Pens to play with Crosby...

Also Kariya might move.

The Devils making a blockbuster trade for Kovalchuk is a HUGE surprise. Especially considering that he will likely be a rental, since I dont believe the Devils will try to sign him long-term

I don't imagine the Devils payroll is through the roof, so you never know, they might try.

The thing with the Bruins is that they traded Kessel, their best sniper. Also they lost Krejci, Savard and Bergeron all at the same time at some point. Losing your first 3 centers is pretty much a season ender :\

Glad to see the Habs fight it through though. We lost Markov for half of the season, now Cammalleri is out... Losing your PP quarterback and your best sniper sucks!
