    They were great sweaters until the last iteration in Hartford when they went with darker "cooler" colors.

    990 straight games and 400 goals for Phil tonight. He took so much shit in Toronto for being the best player on freaking awful teams. I'd put him in the HOF but such a large portion of the electorate is GTA based that he'll never make it.

    Hell of a record. Way more impressive than Ripken's baseball streak.

    Interesting. I would take one of McDavid, Matthews, Makar, or Kaprizov for the future before Tkachuk.

    Kaprizov and Tkachuk are close for me. But I'd lean Kap on the contingency that he can't go back to Russia ever.

    So, a player is ineligible to play because of a bullying incident when he was fourteen? Why not use the hair pulling of little Susie Q when he was 7 as well?

    Wtf?

    I haven’t followed up on it but all I can figure is there’s more to it, otherwise I’m like you

    It’s more than just a typical case of bullying though.

    “In 2016, Miller and a classmate were found delinquent in an Ohio juvenile court on charges of assault and a violation of the Ohio Safe Schools Act. The pair were accused and found guilty of urging a developmentally disabled African American classmate, Isaiah Meyer-Crothers, to eat a piece of candy that they had wiped along a urinal, repeated bullying of Meyer-Crothers, and repeatedly calling him a (racial slur). Surveillance video also captured them kicking and punching Meyer-Crothers”

    Also fair to point out that, according to a lot of people, has shown no remorse and never apologized to the victim or his family.

    I sure as hell didn’t see this coming. Still a long way to go, but one hell of a way to start a season.

    Ovechkin now has the record for most goals scored on the road and most game opening goals.

    403 goals on the road in 652 games. Gretzky had the record, but did it in 742 games.

    Just had a hat trick last night to get him to 800 total. 3rd best all-time, 1 behind second place Gordie, and only 92 away from Gretzky's all-time record

    The way St Louis is going I’d put about the same money on winning the cup or missing the playoffs altogether
