Even in a down year for the Hawks, we still get one Luon6o night.

The Hawks have unleashed the supertards of the last two years. There were five Canucks in the box for a couple seconds. If only this were the start of something big. It's probably more like that Johan Franzen game that Detroit had against the Sharks before getting eliminated last year.

I find myself surprisingly into the Kings this offseason.  A combination of thinking it's hilarious when the Sharks lose, that guy eating the salad in the front row of the playoff opener and not having any animosity whatsoever towards the Kings has really turned me into a fan.

I really wish I was there tonight. At best I'd be able to go to a Western Conference Final game, not any sooner, but I don't think we're going that far. Winning a series would be huge, our fans have suffered a long time and deserve it.

I had the opportunity to go to the Sabres game on Easter...which sounded great on paper.  Now that I think that will end up being the day they get eliminated by the Flyers...I passed.

Penner should be forced to sit until Kopitar comes back, because clearly he doesn't give a shit unless he's playing with one of the best centers in the league. Fuck that useless asshole.

Miller and Boucher put on a goaltending clinic in the last few minutes.

Briere was standing dead in front of Miller all alone and Miller caught the shot off the end of the stick.

Ennis went in on a breakaway and Boucher got a pad on it.

Right back down Miller got a stick on a shot to cover up.

Excellent stuff.

An absolute gem from Miller.  Maybe his best performance of the year.  He made a lot of very difficult saves.  Career highlight reel stuff

Considering the Phoenix based fans who

A.) Actually exist

B.) Actually care about hockey

...well it's probably not that many of them but most will become Kings fans and I don't know how to feel about that.

lol

I can't wait to see what happens when they have to sit through seasons of a bullshit team that can't bring in any good players. A few months ago our announcers said they absolutely dreaded the trips to Winnipeg, just totally buried the city and basically said it's the worst place on the continent they've ever been.

Okay, and Phoenix is so fuckin' great? It's a big asphalt blemish on a desert. It's filled with old people, Mexicans, and, if my acquaintances are any indication, girls who got teen pregnant back home in Wisconsin/Illinois/Michigan and decided to start a new life with bad tattoos and massage therapy school. At least Winnipeg is an actual city with arts and culture and a sense of community and all that other stuff that springs up when it's cold outside. It's basically a marginally colder St. Paul.

I'm not trying to defend Phoenix or anything but at least you can go outside during the winter and bar hop/do things that get guys like Patrick Kane in trouble but also contribute to players wanting to play in a city. Winnipeg's going to get their team back and they should, but let's not pretend players are going to want to go there when that couldn't be further from the truth. Players don't give a shit about arts and culture, they're meatheads who dump a puck down the ice and chase it for a living.

Unless they're Swedes and Finns who play smart, skillful possession hockey. No dump-and-chase for the Red Wings!

For whatever it's worth, Ed Olczyk (OUR broadcaster) is a former Jet and, when pressed, has had only positive things to say about the city and the NHL coming back to it. Winnipeg will have plenty of bars and underage girls willing to have sex with hockey players, so the city does indeed meet the two biggest needs of an NHL player.

For all the talk of "players wanting to play in a city," which worthwhile free agents actually show up to Phoenix, Miami, Atlanta, all these pissant warm-weather cities with shitty organizations in them? The most desirable location in the NHL is such a shithole that they use Eminem to improve their image.

Well, in the last two years I think Ray Whitney's the only guy who's signed a contract in Phoenix without being traded there first. Of course that has a lot to do with their ownership though. Jovanovski signed in Phoenix too. No money, no free agents, obviously. I mean I can understand why nobody would want to play in Atlanta, but otherwise, why wouldn't they? Given that all of these teams have been in horrible financial situations since like, ever, there's really no way to know whether or not they'd come if one of those teams could somehow find magical money and give the players an opportunity to win. The Ducks are backed by someone who came up with magical money! They signed some guys and the owner got in trouble. Success.

And there are shitty organizations like the Rangers who provide location alone as a drawing card who can get almost any free agent they want despite not being able to put together a functioning team. That team is a great example of players signing somewhere just because they want to play in New York.

I never got the Winnipeg fetish hockey fans have, like it's some magical place that makes our lives better. It's a small city in the middle of nowhere that nobody would have heard of if not for the NHL and Chris Jericho. I guess it's cool to root for them because it's a nice non-threatening market, and it's always comfortable to have some of those in your league.

I don't think anyone knows about Winnipeg because of Chris Jericho.

Anyways, my understanding is that the Peg actually has a pretty decent club/bar scene. It's cold, but it's not like they're trying to get people who grew up in Louisiana to move there. Hockey players are mostly guys from Canada and Scandinavia and Russia. They can handle Winnipeg.

It was just an example and everyone could get in trouble in their hometown.

Well of course they can handle it. That doesn't willingly mean they're going to go there when Winnipeg gets into regular bidding wars for their target of choice during free agency. I'm not saying they'll draft guys who beg to be traded, it'll just be tough sledding trying to improve their team through that avenue.

The franchise does have a player who was drafted but held out because he didn't want to play in that city. I refer, of course, to Blake Wheeler refusing to report to Phoenix. They're not going to get into bidding wars for free agents. They're probably going to be like the Predators or Sabres and run a competitive but mid-level operation that drafts well and unloads its stars for more prospects when they're up for giant raises. Still, they'll make a lot more money than the Coyotes did, which will trickle down to the rest of the league.

Canucks GM runnin' scared from mean Hawks fans if there's a sixth game. Haha.

If the Jets come back I hope they get a brand new look. That old logo is terrible. I guess I'll have to buy the PHX third jersey with that cute coyote running across, too.

I kinda like having another team so close to the West Coast, as well. Maybe the Panthers can move to Vegas to take their place.

Maaybe better than Essensa. They're pretty similar actually, but nowadays it's hard to win games with someone like him tending goal on a permanent basis.

Bryzgalov wasn't going to go to any cold weather team though, doesn't really have too much to do with their organization or anything like that. I've felt all along that he was going to wind up in Tampa Bay even if the Coyotes were to stay put.
