    Kuchy may get a game, because the league may actually want to avoid the backlash resulting from the appearance of special treatment to stars if they let him off. Also, the league may be sensitive to the fact that it came at garbage time, and they want to avoid donnybrooks during those times. His hit bears little consequence if it is just a matter of getting thrown out of a lopsided game with 5 minutes left. Finally, hitting a player on his knees along the boards is a particular no-no; the guy is at his most prone. He wasn't falling to his knees at the time of the hit, he was already down.

    I think all us would like the 31st pick, but every other bone in our bodies wants TB to get its arse kicked.

    Torts pulling this off would be a great reply to that article that came out re: millennial athletes who don't respond to yelling and friction, but prefer warm milk, excel files and V-bucks.

    Here's my truth on Torts. He's a great coach. Not the best ever. Not elite. But great. Not the best coach always for every player all the time. But who is?

    He doesn't like media. Media don't like him. He's an introvert at heart. So media makes up a narrative because he pisses them off.

    All the other shit about how he can't coach offense is bullshit. Good players who have offense don't need to be coached. They need a system that allows that offense to flow freely and sometimes Torts system doesn't do that. Boo hoo. He wins games.

    If Gabby can score 40 twice for him, any talented player should be able to do the same. Love Torts.

    I’m loving this.
    Not because I’m bitter about Tampa, but because what Kekalainen did at the deadline required stones the size of dinosaur eggs and I’d love to see him rewarded for it.

    Or both. I want all the first-round picks the Rangers can get their hands on, but I'm also A-OK with Tampa flaming out early for the lulz.

    Did somebody post that particular article here, in which they claim, among other things, that yelling and motivational speeches no longer hold any value?

    I can't find it on the Athletic. I assume it's from the Athetic, anyways, it fits their MO.

    I was wrong
    'Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov has been suspended for one game for boarding Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Markus Nutivaara during Game 2 of the teams' First Round series in Tampa on Friday, April 12, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.'

    This is what I expected per my previous post. It would have been two games in the regular season. It might serve to pull the Bolts non-stars to raise their games a notch. There is often a very short term benefit to losing a star that way.

    Cooper's lost this team. He can't go into the locker room and fire these guys up for what should be an amazingly defensive shut-down Tortorella-style hockey.
    Enjoy the third period guys.

    Yeah totally. It's crazy how a team with the right mentality and particular match up can completely shutdown one of the most dominant regular season teams of all time.
