The thought of edm getting to finals is sickening. Defense sucks, goalie mediocre, 5v5 not good and could only run 3 lines last period. A product of 2 players and gift power plays

The league office and the Board of Governors are desperate to have a Canadian team hoist the Cup--especially since this is the 30th anniversary of the last time it happened. With that said, to your point, Edmonton is a garbage team and last night's result is the perfect example of everything that is wrong with them and why it will take WWE-style cheating from the officials to drag them through the second round.

On paper, now that the Bruins aged like red wine in a sauna in the first round and went gently into the good night, Toronto should be the team that emerges from the East. The goaltending situation is problematic, and Bobrovsky is one of two goalies in the East who is capable of stealing a series by himself (the other was Shesterkin), but even still, if Toronto gets slightly better than average goaltending they should beat Florida. But of course, because it is Toronto, the odds are that they will fuck it up badly is very high. Ilya Samsonov looked tight and broken in Game 1--like he knows with Bobrovsky in the other net he has zero margin for error. Murray is probably not coming back until next week from his concussion and he sucks now anyway--2016 and 2017 were a long time ago. If you are the Leafs, you might want to consider putting Woll out on the ice and see if you can't catch lightning in a bottle. He is unlikely to do worse than Samsonov's .850 save percentage.

And of course, the Devils got destroyed last night. Granted, they got destroyed at home twice by the Rangers, but I think this is a different situation. The Rangers situation was probably the result of the Devils figuring out what playoff hockey is like and let's face it, Brind'amour is a much better coach than Gallant and while the Canes roster looks like cobbled together dogshit, they actually play the system Brind'amour wants to play.

Well, I guess we are about to find out if the Canes are as gutless and soft as the Rangers because that is the only way the Devils can climb out of this hole.

Every Devil game is a blowout by one side except one. Oddest playoff run I have seen.

Well, I guess we found out last night that the Canes are not as gutless as the Rangers. In other news, Joe Woll will take to the ice to try and stave off a sweep of the Leafs by the Miami Pussycats. He wasn't bad in this relief appearance in Game 3. Was basically left hung out to dry on the OT goal by a D that refused to actually defend anyone.

And Joe Woll comes up big in extending the Maple Leafs season for at least one more night, stopping 24 of 25 shots in a 2-1 win.

Woll did everything he could for the Leafs tonight. 40 saves/ a .930 save percentage, but at the end of the day, the Leafs are going to Leaf.

The Dallas Stars vs the Vegas Golden Knights and the Carolina Hurricanes vs the Florida Panthers is the perfect encapsulation of the ruin Garry Bettman has visited upon the NHL. The TV ratings for both semi-finals will be lower than a Tuesday night on HGTV and no matter the combo that emerges for the Final we will probably be looking at ratings that approach WNBA-level awfulness. But at least there are Four Sunbelt teams--two of whom have good attendance (Carolina and Vegas--Dallas is a very easy ticket to get most nights) and one who makes BC basketball look like it has a frothy and dedicated fanbase.

It's funny how every 15 years or so there are people wearing crisp new Panthers tshirts and hats around South Florida for about a month. Other than that, you wouldn't know there was a team in the Everglades.

Correct. The Florida Panthers are the Phoenix Coyotes with a wealthier owner. If Alex Meruello owned the Panthers (which would actually be fitting as he is from Miami by way of Cuba), the Panthers would have been bankrupt by now. Instead, Vinny Viola appears content to take a bath on the Panthers almost every year without nary a complaint.

Drury really is hot garbage as a GM. And he is going hire John Hynes. The Rangers need a Rat Dog elimination program across the entire organization.

could be season or rangers thread but certainly sounds like gabe is sticking around:

https://theathletic.com/5300773/2024/03 ... n-college/


CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — Gabe Perreault is not the sort of young hockey player to be motivated by spite. That he dropped from being a projected top-10 pick last June into the Rangers’ laps at No. 23 could be the source of “prove-em-wrong” energy. But Perreault, though he doesn’t turn 19 until May, has a very mature outlook on what went down in Nashville nine months ago.

“You don’t want to think about it too much,” Perreault said after practice with his Boston College team late last month. “Maybe you can use it a little bit, but there’s lots of guys drafted ahead of me who are going to have great careers and some won’t. That’s just how it is every year no matter where you’re picked. I’m not looking to compare myself to anyone, I’m just glad I ended up with the Rangers.”

Just don’t think that will happen anytime soon. For those Ranger fans dreaming of Perreault jumping into the lineup during the postseason like Chris Kreider did a dozen years ago, there are lots of reasons why that won’t happen. But a lot of those reasons — Perreault’s size, for one, his age and the fact he hasn’t played in nearly a month as the NCAA hockey tournament looms for the No. 1 Eagles — are actually good things in the long run.

This has been a special freshman season for Perreault, who was leading all of college hockey in scoring when he was injured. His 50 points in 30 games are still among the top 10 scorers in the NCAA — fellow freshman and linemate Will Smith now leads with 58 points and Ryan Leonard, another freshman and linemate, is right there at 49 points — and the line with Smith, the fourth pick last June by the Sharks, and Leonard, the eighth pick by the Caps, has been one of the most impactful lines in college hockey this year.

The trio comprised the top line for the U.S. National Development and Training Program squad as 17-year-olds under now-Rangers assistant coach Dan Muse so it was a natural they’d fit together in college.

“We didn’t put them together at first,” BC coach Greg Brown said, “but after a couple weeks we did and they scored about 15 seconds into a drill. So it’s like, ‘OK, they do read off each other pretty well.’ And it’s not just with the puck. They really help each other defensively, which is great for me because they find ways to be defensively responsible. If you look at our analytics they’re always in the positive area as far as chances. It may not be textbook but they find a way to be very effective at both ends.”

Choosing the college route has turned out to be the right path for Perreault. His father, Yanic, was a high-end scorer in the Quebec League — 87 goals in his overage year, when he was taken 47th by the Leafs — and Jacob, Gabe’s older brother, played in the OHL before being selected 27th by the Ducks in 2020.

But Gabe Perreault never had the size to go with his skill. He’s listed at 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds. The 40-ish game college schedule fits better for his development than a playing-heavy schedule in Canadian juniors. “I needed that schedule to be able to get in the gym more,” Perreault said. “It still definitely feels like the right decision.”

BC has a history of small, skilled players who matured here on their way to pro careers. The Johnny Gaudreau comparison comes up plenty — Gaudreau might have been smaller than Perreault when he arrived at college in 2011, a few months after the Flames drafted him 101st. Gaudreau had a stellar freshman year with 44 points in 44 games but no one was rushing him; he stayed two more years, went straight to Calgary and was third in Calder Trophy voting in 2014-15.

Even Kreider, whose 2012 playoff run with the Rangers was impressive coming off a national championship with BC, didn’t leave until after his junior year despite being a similar physical specimen to the one he’s been for over a decade. The game has changed for first-round picks and high achievers in amateur hockey because of the salary cap and factors like social media — it’s much easier for young players to compare themselves to their peers even if they don’t play in the same league — but Perreault, with the guidance of his family, Boston College and the Rangers, seems to understand that patience is key.

“He’s got a really good hockey IQ and he’s only 18 years old, he’s nowhere close to what he will be physically,” Yanic Perreault said. “I think the adjustment this year has gone really well. He learned a lot under Coach Muse at the program and he’s a great fit with Coach Brown and BC. There’s no rush to think about next year.”

Especially when Brown, a Rangers assistant under David Quinn for three seasons, sees the comparables to Perreault’s game right now.

“You can’t compare the way he thinks the game directly to an Artemi Panarin yet, but it’s that kind of thinking ahead where size isn’t a factor,” Brown said. “Johnny Gaudreau was another guy that could use his brain to not let the battles get turned into battles of strength. Gabe’s able to win a lot of puck battles by getting body position early because he’s outsmarted the other guy. And he sees the ice so well that the passes are off his stick before someone can close and pin him. He has an elite hockey brain to negate whatever the size disadvantage may be.”

There’s a reason that the Penguins’ first ask when the Rangers inquired about Jake Guentzel before the March 8 deadline was a high pick plus Perreault. His remarkable first post-draft season has likely vaulted him to the top of the team’s prospect list, maybe even ahead of Brennan Othmann, who is having a solid first pro season in the AHL.

But there is certainly no rush, even if the Eagles finish this season with an NCAA title. Perreault may return to action by Friday’s Hockey East semifinal against UMass; whether he does or not, this is the beginning of a process towards him becoming an everyday contributor as a pro, not the end.

“It’s been easy to focus on the task at hand,” Perreault said. “It’s great to have the Rangers check in and they’re having a great season, but you have to focus on what’s in front of you.”

The Caps are an AHL-level team that made the playoffs because the bottom of the east is hot garbage and they got three weeks of unsustainably amazing goaltending from Charlie Lindgren. Ovi, Carlson, Oshie, Backstrom and Van Riemsdyk and Pacioretty (who is my neighbor and renting Lars Eller's house for the season), are essentially all withered up and finished and guys like Sonny Milano, Sgarbossa, Aube-Kubel, Strobe, McIllrath (a former disastrous Rangers 1st round pick around 2012 or so) and Bear are basically career AHL guys. Even Tom Wilson looks like the miles have caught up with him as he turned 30. If the Rangers don't do anything stupid this should be a sweep--five games tops if the corpses on the top lines have a throwback day where they play like it was five years ago. I am truly looking forward to the Caps season next year--the way this roster is constructed they should be historically bad.

It was a shocking moment when I realized that was the Dylan McIlrath playing for the caps. I have to give him credit for only having 75 career NHL games over 12 years and being in the 2024 playoffs.

I would like to believe the refs allowing the caps to headhunt and do whatever they wanted last night gave them their best shot at a victory in this series. I would also start Quick in game 3, you need to keep him sharp. :ace

angrydick was right, ovi is completely shot. just out for a casual skate cashing those $11m checks.

not too much to read into last night or the series. first 2 periods were very meh but handled a bad team. re wilson, i think valiquette said it well during the intermission 'the thing about him is he's an absolute idiot'.

hopefully the fishsticks make brindamour work a couple of extra nights

A lot more scoring in game 1 than I would have thought.

We did look sharp (always worried about having that much time off).

The picture of Jason Bateman with Michael J Fox at MSG yesterday kind of makes me think we are a team of destiny this season. :ace

Game 3 is going to be interesting. The Rangers were the better team in game one across the board. In game two Igor kept them in it until they turned it on about seven minutes into OT and pretty much dominated through the rest of the first and into the second OT.

The one thing I am noticing about this Canes team, other than the fact that they are despicable across the board is that they are also dumb and overly emotional—probably why Tony D has stuck there after washing out everywhere else. If this goes to a game five, the Rangers ought to bring Eric Lindros to drop a ceremonial puck just to fuck with Brind’Amour.
