I agree with you completely. This is why I stopped posting in this thread. It's filled with moronic homers who only watch their own team (I'd be surprised if they even did that, they probably just go look at the final score) who know nothing about hockey and are always talking about how their team (LA Kings, Anaheim Ducks, etc) are sucking or how the Bruins won their game on the given day.

I will attempt to add to the discussion though.

So which surprise teams do you guys think will drop down in the standings? Right now we have Ottawa, Florida, St. Louis, New Jersey, and Minnesota all in a playoff position half way through the season. None of those teams played in the post season last year. Florida has started to slump and Minny was slumping earlier. Neither of those teams stick out to me as playoff teams. I'd like to say that Ottawa and New Jersey are in. I'm iffy on St. Louis. For the past couple of seasons they've always had a stretch where they were simply dominant, winning games left and right. The last time they made the playoffs was in 08-09. Based off previous history and collapses, I don't think they make it.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

I find that insulting, I probably watch the Canucks more than the Ducks(sadly) and plenty of other teams as much as I watch the ducks because I get a lot of games on. And I'm sure most Americans don't get many hockey games other than their local teams because it isn't as big over there, so maybe all they get is mostly their team.

As for who will likely not make the playoffs, I can see the Wild and LA not making it in the west. Wild were red hot in the start of the seaosn and playing great, but it's gone down hill from there and I don't see them making it until the end of the year. LA doesn't seem to have the offensive weapons to make it, or at least their offensive weapons are underperforming, they can only depend on Quick for so long to keep them in games. Basically, unless their goalies maintain their great play all year and don't have any bad stretches, I don't see them making it in the end. Same with the Wild, their goalies were great in the start of the season, but have slowed down since and their offense hasn't been able to make up for the goals they've allowed in.

I feel that either Panthers or capitals will make it in the East, Ovie is underperforming and they have a bunch of injuries that have completely fucked them over which has caused them to go downhill a lot, but it was kind of the same thing last year and they made that huge run near the end of the season and got first place.

I have a feeling Toronto is going to grap that last spot for Ottawa and Ottawa come ninth or something barely missing the playoffs. They are a streaky team so you never know when they might start failing again.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Panthers or Washington have to make it as someone has to win the division and I can't see it being Winnipeg, despite it being a good story and what not. Carolina and Tampa are all but out of it at this point. For me I'd say it'll be Washington but that's more or less just because it SHOULD be Washington. I'm not sure about Ottawa tbh. They are winning because they're scoring, not because they're keeping them out of their net so if their goal scoring suffers even a little they may sink fast as they win a lot of close games. If I was betting I'd say New Jersey misses the playoffs out of the current 1-9 in the east.

St. Louis is the best team in the league since the coaching change are they not? They were for a while anyway. They were projected to be a good team this year so it's not really surprising me where they're at right now. They may drop a spot or two but they'll be in I'd say. West looks like it'll be a whole lot more interesting then the east come crunch time once again. It's hard to predict right now. Minnesota will suffer with Koivu out, that's for sure. They'll probably drop out for the time being. There's no one team that's that much better than the others 7 through 12 in the west. This is much like last year though, except it was basically 6 through 13 in the west last year that were pretty much on par much of the year.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

I'd watch more games/teams if I could but Hockey isn't given the same treatment as any of the other sports so I can only watch whats on the local channels. Only reason I support The Wild is because I generally have no access to Blackhawks games unless they happen to be in the game of the week (or whatever) on VS/NBC Sports until the playoffs and the Wild happen to be the local team.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

There's more you can do than watch games then. Sports Centre is great for keeping up on what's going on. I know as much as I do about as many sports as I do because of sports centre.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Americans don't have sports center, well I'm pretty damn sure they don't. ESPN is their sports center, and they don't pay any attention to hockey.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Yeah, i'm 90% sure I don't have that channel. I pretty much only have Fox Sports North (if I could watch the other Fox Sports channels it wouldn't be a problem) & VS./NBC Sports.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Isn't ESPN's sports news show called Sports Centre too?
