ok...
from the moment Blackwell was called up I knew he would be the sacrificial lamb
with regard to expansion - it was obvious... and ok

now.....
please figure out if Chytil is worth a flyer on Eichel....
pedigree I know I Know
not sure what the further upside of Chytil is (he's a serviceable 3rd line player)

tick tock :mrgreen:

not sure if going after Wilson again is in the best interest of the club come October
but for sure we have more character guys in the room who will not allow folks to take liberties

new coach already had this guy and I assume he completely understands his role on a team
I don't think we need an enforcer most nights but if they get into the tournament
then I'd want him dressed every night taking a normal turn on the 4th - hope he has enough
skills to handle around 10-12 minutes a game but be ready to sit for a game or three
every week as the season rolls along... need production from every spot most nights
I'd be willing to sacrifice some scoring in the playoffs for toughness - but we have to get
there first and currently we're still built to out score you rather than kick your ass

this coach knows that to succeed deep into the playoffs we need a team that can play
every game style well and excel of course at the skills where most of the talent is
the only Rangers team I never saw pushed around was the Messier bunch, but the last
one that went to the finals had a bit of grit... just not enough

Igor gets the big contract :shock:
$5.66mil per for 4 years :shock: :shock:

his sample size is still small and I don't know :-k :-k :-k
he has shown brilliance but has also been fragile

the most important factor of any player is... availability

Thanks Henrik - I wish you got your name on the cup as well
You're all class and world class at that

(personally happy there won't be pictures of you playing games in the NHL wearing anything but a blue shirt)

:clap :clap :clap

He’s a first ballot Hall of Farmer
at the height of his career he was universally recognized as the best in the business during his era… not winning the cup will have zero impact on the HOF

Giacomin never won the cup either and he’s in the hall

But there are others whose careers include notable accomplishments and achievements but who, for one reason or another, remain on the outside looking in.

Here's an alphabetical list of my 15 best goalies not in the Hall of Fame:

Tom Barrasso

NHL Seasons: 19 (1983-2000; 2001-03)
Teams: Buffalo Sabres, Pittsburgh Penguins, Ottawa Senators, Carolina Hurricanes, Toronto Maple Leafs, St. Louis Blues
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (1991, 1992); Calder Trophy (1983-84); Vezina Trophy (1983-84); Jennings Trophy (1984-85)
Noteworthy achievement: One of four goalies to win Calder and Vezina trophies in same season - and he did it before his 20th birthday.

Lorne Chabot

NHL seasons: 11 (1926-37)
Teams: New York Rangers, Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, Montreal Maroons, New York Americans
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (1928, 1932); Vezina Trophy (1935)
Noteworthy achievement: His 1.51 career goals-against average in the Stanley Cup Playoffs includes a 1-0, six-overtime win for the Maple Leafs against the Boston Bruins in 1933. It was the longest game in NHL history to that time.



Roger Crozier

NHL seasons: 14 (1963-77)
Teams: Detroit Red Wings, Sabres, Washington Capitals
Accomplishments: Calder Trophy (1964-65), Conn Smythe Trophy (1966)
Noteworthy achievement: First player to win Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP despite playing for losing team.

Ron Hextall

NHL seasons: 13 (1986-99)
Teams: Philadelphia Flyers, Quebec Nordiques, New York Islanders
Accomplishments: Vezina Trophy (1986-87), Conn Smythe Trophy (1987)
Noteworthy achievement: First goalie to score a goal by shooting the puck into the net; he shot the puck the length of the ice into an empty net against the Bruins on Dec. 8, 1987.


Kelly Hrudey

NHL seasons: 15 (1983-98)
Teams: Islanders, Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks
Accomplishments: Helped Kings reach Stanley Cup Final for first time (1993)
Noteworthy achievement: Made 73 saves for Islanders to win "Easter Epic," a 3-2, four-overtime victory against the Washington Capitals in Game 7 of the Patrick Division Semifinals. It's still the longest Game 7 in NHL history.



Eddie Johnston

NHL seasons: 16
Teams: Boston Bruins, Maple Leafs, Blues, Blackhawks
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (1970, 1972)
Noteworthy achievement: Last goalie to play in all of his team's games; he played in 4,200 minutes in 70 games for the Bruins in 1963-64.



Curtis Joseph

NHL seasons: 19
Teams: Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Maple Leafs, Red Wings, Phoenix Coyotes, Calgary Flames
Accomplishments: King Clancy Trophy (2000)
Noteworthy achievement: His 454 wins are sixth all-time and the most of any eligible goalie not in the Hall of Fame. Won at least 50 games for five of the six teams he played for (all except Calgary).



Nikolai Khabibulin

NHL seasons: 18
Teams: Winnipeg Jets/Coyotes, Tampa Bay Lightning, Blackhawks, Oilers
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (2004)
Noteworthy achievement: Had 16 wins, 1.71 goals-against average and five shutouts in Lightning's run to Stanley Cup in 2004.



Chris Osgood

Teams: Red Wings, Islanders, Blues
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (1997, 1998, 2008); Jennings Trophy (1995-96, 2007-08)
Noteworthy achievement: At age 35, he was 14-4 with a 1.55 goals-against average, .930 save percentage and three shutouts in Detroit's run to the Stanley Cup in 2008.



Mike Richter

NHL seasons: 14 (1989-2003)
Teams: Rangers
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (1994)
Noteworthy achievements: Only goalie since 1940 to win Stanley Cup with Rangers. Also was voted MVP when United States won World Cup of Hockey in 1996.



John Ross Roach

NHL seasons: 14 (1921-35)
Teams: Toronto St. Patricks/Maple Leafs, Rangers, Red Wings
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (1922)
Noteworthy achievements: First goalie in NHL history to be named team captain (1924-25).



Al Rollins

NHL seasons: 9 (1949-57; 1959-60)
Teams: Maple Leafs, Blackhawks, Rangers
Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (1951); Hart Trophy (1953-54), Vezina Trophy (1950-51)
Noteworthy achievements: Won Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player with last-place Blackhawks despite leading League in losses (47) and goals allowed (212).



Tim Thomas

Accomplishments: Stanley Cup (2011), Vezina Trophy (2008-09, 2010-11), Jennings Trophy (2008-09), Conn Smythe Trophy (2011)
Noteworthy achievements: Save percentage of .938 in 2010-11 is the best single-season mark by any goalie who has played more than 40 games in a season since 1955-56, the first season for which information is available. Was 37 when he won Vezina in 2010-11; he's the oldest winner since the award was changed in 1982 to honor the NHL's best goalie.

John Vanbiesbrouck

NHL seasons: 20 (1981-82; 1983-2002)
Teams: Rangers, Panthers, Flyers, Islanders, Devils
Accomplishments: Vezina Trophy (1985-86)
Noteworthy achievements: Youngest goalie in Rangers history to start and win a game. Vanbiesbrouck was 18 when he made 29 saves in a 2-1 win against the Colorado Rockies in Denver on Dec. 5, 1981.



Mike Vernon

NHL seasons: 19 (1982-84; 1985-2002)
Teams: Flames, Red Wings, Sharks, Panthers

making the hall is about being the best among your peers
Henrik for a decent period of time was head and shoulders above the rest of the goalies in the league

on the list above only
Tom Barrasso and Curtis Joseph stand out to me as surprises they weren't in the hall
I don't know enough about Chabot to have any feel about his game compared
to the others he played with in his career

the rest of them had nice careers and good playoff runs
but they did not dominate the way the king dominated the league for a good 5-7 seasons

alright...
so management has decided we DO need a captain

I say....
Capn' Kreider should take the mantle

papers say the staff is looking at Trouba

I'll go with Kreider (even though he disappears for weeks at a time during the season)
I think he has the temperament and the skills media wise to pull it off

do not give it to Mika
dark horse - Rooney - but I don't have a good feel for his leadership in the room

:-k
so we have a 19 year old who has to go back to Juniors because he only played 18 out of a possible 24 games (75% of the games played by the team) last year is ineligible to return to the AHL but a kid who only played in 45% of his squads' games (say... 20 out of 44) because that team was able to get more games in due to the pandemic is eligible to forego the Juniors :shock:

some of these rules about player control are just meaningless
the kid proved he could play with men last year because our management ran him out there
almost every night but some kid who played less than half that amount for its team can still
be held in the AHL?

well coach
that was an inauspicious beginning
I know I know (pre-season / exhibition games)
but
a winning team and culture goes out to win every time on the ice

we cannot win if we do not score
simple as that

<<
saw a little more toughness when someone got railroaded - good start on that
Goodrow was correctly tossed for his hit

lots of moving parts
always tough to wrangle an opinion on players I'll see once

I didn't blame the goalie on any of the goals
but I did see some defensemen not look to see who was behind them as the icelanders scored

some things never change

not a good look opening night coming out the chute

the power play threw it around nicely in the 1st period but didn't get any grade-a looks
the power play goal in the 3rd was anti-climatic ** a big body should be able to tip one home

Paging mr's panarin, zibanajad and strome - where were you?

Kakko looks more and more like a solid top six guy
he got caught in no mans land on one of power play goals against -- he'll learn
