    good article in last Sunday's NY Times on the Knights and their player contract strategy. Bottom line: they build for the long term with their core group.

    Thank you, Keith. Minus 8 right now and have a couple cold water pipes frozen (no damage). Was in Las Vegas two weeks ago, accompanied Wifey who attended the SCCA National Convention Seminar at the Southpoint Casino Hotel - thought of you. Never played a hand of cards, and couldn't hit a decent video poker hand either.

    Whodathunk?
    Philly has been hot lately, and we'll see them 7 PM this evening on NHLN playing da Bruins!

    No one can figure out Flyers. Three weeks ago GM stated everyone but Giroux was trade bait. Still a long long way from playoffs. Canes open 5 game road trip tonight vs. Pens. Say good night Rod. Janet and I were in Sarasota for awhile and we ran into family members of "Rocket" and "Pocket Rocket" Richard. very nice people living in Vermont. Had a good talk about the original six days and first 10 years of "expansion. I did see Henri in action several times. And where have you gone, Larry Robinson?

    Just before this thread went dead on timeline alone......
    That is neat, Keith, that you and Janet got to meet the Richards. -envious!- :)

    Flyers on a roll.
    Tampa Bay continues to steamroll all opponents.
    Should be a decent two months finish to the playoff matchups.

    Wow, the Knights came to play tonight (except when they were on the power play, they still looked lost there), and beat the Lightning at home in a shootout. They really need to build off this win and get the going again.

    Anaheim in complete MELTDOWN -- they are only one point ahead of the last place Kings, who have sucked all season. Blanked tonight 4-0 by the Senators of all teams.

    Anaheim has a -51 goal differential, worst in the NHL-- by 19!

    The Knights play a ton of home games the rest of the season and have one of the best home records in the league. But Calgary and the Sharks are also playing well.

    Yep. Either will be hard to catch. I’d like to see the Knights get up to second in the division, but I don’t see it happening. They’ve been too inconsistent. Can’t win if they don’t figure out how to put it in the net more often.

    One of the other teams has to go into a tailspin. We might have been through ours.

    I’m curious about the trade deadline.

    In terms of trades, think they’re in a tough position. They won’t get anyone for the people we need to shed, and (IMO) it’s too risky to start moving our better players around.

    We need a good back up goal tender. No way you can go the rest of the way with Fleury playing every game.

    Agreed. The question is, what price will they have to pay to get one?

    Curious that Pirri was benched tonight.... just sayin'

    I think Coach views Pirri as a double edged sword. Good offense, questionable defense.

    Famous quote by 50 goal scorer Pierre LaRouche way back when: "They pay me 2 million to score goals. When they pay me ANOTHER 2 million, I'll stop them, too."

    He's cooled off, and while I don't think hid D is as bad as some people say, but he's not a 2-way player.

    Really entertaining game tonight on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada (HNIC). Leafs at Montreal. Overtime!
    Trawna is so loaded with talent. Salary cap will soon come into play there. FAST game.
    Calgary at Vancouver on right now - 2-2 end of first.


    Harry Neale, professional hockey coach: "Last year we couldn't win at home and we were losing on the road. My failure as a coach was that I couldn't think of anywhere else to play."
