    There are not going to be any goalies you take over the top 10 offensive players in league history, is all I'm saying. I'll usually take the scorer over the goalie, though. Sundin or Lundqvist, I take Lundqvist.

    His Corsi relative to his OZS hasn't been particularly good the last two years. In 2012 he was the best possession player in the game.

    Crosby had some turnovers in the Washington series, but he also drove play when he had the puck. More positive than negative there.

    I didn’t. Someone else did. Fwiw, I’d take a lot of centers + avg goalie over Lundqvist + Stepan or Zibs

    Lunqvist sucks. There's the plain truth.

    I might take you more seriously if you could actually spell Lundqvist correctly.

    My apologies, I used the word list and thought it would actually have his name correct.

    I was on NHL Sirius radio the other day after a CAPS fan called all excited to play TBL.

    "RangerFrank in NY calling. First of all, CAPS fans must be excited that the Rangers are FINALLY out of the playoffs after having eliminated you from Round 2 over the years. Enjoy your few minutes in the sun! The NY Rangers southern affiliate team also known as the Lightening will rock your world. Anyway, I don't really care who wins as long as it is any team other than the Capitols."

    WAS proved me wrong last night, but there is plenty of hockey left to play.

    Game 7 of the ECF is still something. Granted, McD and Girardi were -2 in game 7, the former rangers overall had a good play off run and could be going to the SCF if they got better goaltending tonight.

    Imagine if this was us. Trading away two good prospects, a 1st and a conditional 2nd and not making the SC. Would not be "still something". Especially how embarrassing they got knocked out being shutout for over 2 games. Kinda remind me of the Conference final in 2015 when we got shutout in the last two home games.

    Good. Now we dont have to hear about south Rangers anymore this year.

    Looks like even after putting up a PPG pace to finish the regular season with TB, JT Miller still found a way to play like garbage in the playoffs.

    Yes, very much so. Felt like we'd seen this movie before.
    Worse still they got physically manhandled as well as offensively stifled. If you're Tampa, you almost have to take a semi-rebuild pill like we did. The answer they paid for was not the answer.

    What emerges for me is that defense and toughness still has a role in winning Conference and SC finals, and if your lineup is not willing to pay the full price of winning up and down, top to bottom, you might as well whistle Dixie, because someone with the equivalent talent level who wants it more is going to wrestle it out of your hands.

    Our rebuild is just at the beginning, but as we go along, we have to make sure they folks we have in place by the time we contend are not wusses (I'm not talking about fighting; I'm saying its not enough to have oodles of skill/talent, you have to be wide awake all the time, confident, want it so bad, have resolve, determination, grit, and willingness to go far, far above and beyond to get the ultimate prize— those are qualities over and above skill that seem essential to me as we rebuild — it sounds almost as impossible to put that all together as winning a Stanley Cup, doesn't it).

    If I am going to add a disclaimer it's that I have not seen enough of the Golden Knights to really know what they are made of, do they have an overwhelm of talent that makes what I just wrote irrelevant? (and/or do they have that level of grit and sacrifice already) Either way I guess we'll see?).

    Speed, talent, and a huge desire to win. Some of those guys definitely go to the dirty areas.

    Whole third period was just giving me flashbacks of 2015. Down 2-0, and can't even generate any offense. the caps shut them DOWN. it was kind of karma in my eyes, they did it to us, and then it happened to them. And in 2015, the Rangers went for it then too, just like TB did this year.
