Why does it seem like goalies can never make a save when the shooter is falling down/sliding on the ice?




Maybe they lose sight of the puck. It blends in with the uniform?

Rangers fire head coach Tom Renney and assistant coach Perry Pearn. Maybe this is the wake up call the Rangers need, by showing that no one is safe, and everyone needs to do their part. However, it is my philosophy, that no matter how good of a coach you have, if you have a sh*tty team, you will continue to have a sh*tty team.

Homey don't play that. Torts is a quote machine. He gives the players no leash. He is a no-nonsense type of coach. He shows the players his system and they better play it, Are the Rangers ready for a coach like that?

Crosby can get all the 100 point seasons he wants to get. Its not going to stop the Red Wings from repeating as Stanley Cup Champions...


And I love how people here still don't acknowledge the fantastic season that Malkin is having... Because Malkin is STILL better than Crosby, and it will always be so.

San Jose will fold like a single mother on laundry day come playoff time.

The playoffs this year will be fun to watch because of how competitive and similar the teams are becoming. In the West you have Detroit, San Jose, Calgary, and Vancouver. Those to me are just the top dogs not to mention any team that comes into the playoffs on a hot streak. The East is so clumped together with even the elite teams having questions. The Caps, Bruins, Philly, Carolina, Pittsburgh, Devils, pretty much one through eight could win the Eastern conference crown. In regards to no one acknowledging Malkin's season, that simply isn't true. He's very often referred to as his team’s best player. I almost see it as Ovy, Malkin, and Crosby are pretty much three of the most talented young guns the league has ever seen. At any given time during this current or any other given season you can make an argument of who is better. I myself have decided to forgo that argument and just enjoy the fact that all three are in the league at the same time. Not to mention along side other great young talent in the NHL.

Malkin is better than Crosby right now, he's more clutch in my opinion. Look at what he did last year when Crosby was injured, he stepped up big time and provided insane offense while he was gone.

Also, in my mind...a healthy Marian Gaborik is up there with the likes of Crosby/Malkin/Ovechkin...

I can never understand the effort put forth to distinguish the best in one sport. There are no grouping of rules set to garnish a player "the best". Our generation seems to have this whole issue with deeming someone the best, creating comparisons. The comparisons are ridiculous. Every comparison at its root will be biased and have some sort of personal declaration attached to it. I am a die hard Pittsburgh fan will I ever willingly admit there are better players than Malkin and Crosby probably not. That is why lately I try to stay out of the same beat down arguments/discussions of whom is the best player.The same question is asked daily all over internet message boards: who is the best hockey player, football player, baseball player, etc.. It's an opinion; Marion Gaborik is a great player his level of excellence will differ from person to person, reason to reason because it's an opinion. Just like Ovechkin, Crosby, Malkin, Parise, Kovalchuk, Nash, Datsyuk, Iginla, Getzlaf, Thorton, Richards, Hossa, Heatley and whomever else garnishes best player in the NHL merits. I hesitate to attach the term great to any player until they lead every feasible statistical category in the NHL.

In my opinion, I think Ilya Kovalchuk and Marian Gaborik are the two most underrated goal scorers, and 95% of the time they get no recognition when talking about the top offensive players. If they played on teams like Malkin/Crosby have, or like Ovechkin has, they could both EASILY put up the same numbers as the so called "Top 3." Kovalchuk has had 5 consecutive 40 goal seasons, two of which were 50 goal seasons. But, he has never been able to put up the big assists like Crosby/Malkin. And a healthy Marian Gaborik, is a deadly Marian Gaborik. 77 games, 42 goals+41 assists, on a not-so-good team. So far this season, 12 games, 13 points... And interestingly enough, both free agents after this season. It'll be very interesting to see if Gaborik stays with the team that he practically built, and if Kovalchuk will do the same, or move on to a better team to try and win a championship.

I agree, look at the teams they play on...and look at the teams the others play on. Atlanta is not a good team, and they really have no point getters in their line up minus Kovalchuk and Slava...
Minnesota has been a defense first team since they arrived in the NHL. They struggle to score goals, and provide offense...but Marian does that single handed. He had a 5 goal game last year, i think.

Put Marian on an explosive team, and he will be a threat. same with Ilya.

Yeah, he scored 5 against the Rangers(I'm a Ranger fan BTW). And it was the single best performance I have ever seen. There was absolutely no stopping Yo Gabba Gabba during that game.
