Re: The Official 2018-19 Season Talk Thread

After last night, Thornton tied Howe for 9th most assists in history. And Crosby passed Lemieux for most games played in franchise history.

And no surprise, Ducks finally fired Carlyle.

...and yet again. Wild player hits his own teammate with a stick, causes a nose bleed, and Flyer's Dman in the vicinity gets a 4:00 minute penalty.

Maybe we need to get some of these guys a Whistle Sensitivity Training Program or some such ****!

SkyJudge where art thou?!

Malkin got 1 game for the wild high stick to Rafflís face.

I think itís a good message to send. I donít believe the incident was intentional. Malkin had just got punched in the back of the head (funny that thatís no big deal in hockey), and he kinda turned around to whip his stick at Raffl in retaliation, I think Raffl was further from Malkin then he realized so the stick didnít hit his shins and stop but went unimpeded until it hit his face. Oops. Even so, canít be done or tolerated and one game is more symbolic then punishment. I... actually agree on the NHLís handling here.

Love it!
And in true hockey fashion, there's many people, specifically old timers who hate seeing any kind of entertainment and emotion.

I have no issues with that, but I've seen people in the media like Brian Burke rip that stuff.

I like things like those celebrations, and types of atmosphere teams like the preds and knights bring. Imo, people against it are part of the problem hockey has with attracting new fans because they want to suck the fun and personalities back out of the game

Re: The Official 2018-19 Season Talk Thread

Oilers and Flyers swap out Talbot for Stolarz. Talbot is on an expiring deal, while Stolarz will be a RFA.

From the Oiler's perspective, after overpaying Koskinen (Chia's parting middle finger), they can't really keep Talbot, and they're getting something for him. For the Flyers, I guess they get some stability in net for the stretch run? It's not a significant cost for them as Stolarz had seemingly fallen out of favor with the organization. Could also be a bit of a "try before you buy"; where if Talbot hits, they'll have the inside track on resigning him.
