    I don't understand Tort's recent lack of faith in the fourth line. In the double OT game on Tuesday the 4th line played 6, 8, and 8 minutes. I don't think they saw a single shift in the 3rd period or 1st OT. The Jackets have good depth - their fourth line is by no means a liability. So bummed about being down 3-2 to the Caps. After going up 2-0 in the series, I didn't have any inkling that my tickets to game 6 would be for an elimination game in favor of the Caps.

    Columbus & Cap forwards, some up to 26minutes/game average, with the OT played.

    I said last man back (checking), not the first man back. I get how it can be interpreted multiple ways though. In my opinion, there came a point where Subban stopped recovering as well after his turnovers. In his first few seasons and in junior, he’d be the first man back even after he was the one to turn the puck over because of his anticipation and blazing speed. I noticed even when he was on the Habs that this was starting to fade away a little. I was saying that in response to how he recovers well after making mistakes, although it seems that the comment was specific to how it’s a myth that he’s not good in his own zone. I agree that P.K. is solid in his own zone. It’s more the offensive blue line turnovers and neutral zone turnovers that can prove costly (for any player). I just found that P.K. used to recover better from those situations than he does now.

    Thanks, sounds good. Be nice if at least 1 Hab prospect is there.

    It was Ellis. Pk pinched in to force a play that didn't pan out. I am happy for Sven, like Hudon and Carr: he can provide secondary scoring

    https://www.nhl.com/video/andrighettos-late-go-ahead-goal/t-297850294/c-60028603 Looks like Subban was the last man back on Colorado’s game winning goal today. PS: I don’t miss him but I liked Andrighetto. Everyone was fine with the trade but I think Andrighetto for Martinsen was one of MB’s lesser trades.

    Funny, his coach uses him like the best defenceman on the team. And the fact was he excelled when paired with Emelin. And the fact is he did play more than half the season with Emelin... we've already seen this from the ice time charts. Why do you argue against numbers that are easily verifiable. Fact Subban played more minutes with Emelin than Ekholm. The NHL tracks this,

    Yes yes Subban played with emelin to start the season while Ellis was hurt because Ekholm was moved up the line up to play with Josi. That doesn’t change the fact that Ekholm is PK’s Partner... and has been for the last 44 games of the reg season as Ellis didn’t miss “more then half”... PK’s season took off once reunited with Ekholm and those 2 became one of the best shut down pairs in all of hockey. Pk is a worthy finalist and i don’t need to be told PK’s fantastic. I know so. But like I said pk has Ekholm and Jones has Werenski both head and shoulders better then doughty and hedmans partner. Added to the fact that there’s an argument to be made that PK isn’t even the best D on his own team... I love PK but I’ll have to give the nod to doughty then hedman.

    SSM is the strongest team in all of Junior Hockey and were my pick to win not just the OHL, but the Mem Cup. I was shocked that OS took them 7 games. Hamilton was my pick to win the conference, but I think Sault Ste. Marie spanks them in the OHL final. The west is stronger than the East overall.

    I hate them both. Like you I hate the Bruins more, and i live in the middle of Leafs country and have more annoying Leaf fans as friends than Bruins fans. In most circumstances I'd hope the Leafs would win the series. But with the draft pick, I want the Leafs OUT. That said, I'm cheering for the asteroid.

    The thing is Toronto would lose in the second round for sure. Boston has a much better chance of going deep.
  15. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    I like to watch the city of Toronto suffer when it comes to sports. I can watch Boston suffer in the second round.

    Bitten 1g(3) 1a in 7-1 blowout, up 2-0 in series. Verbeek no pts but Sault wins up 1-0 in series. Anyone follow the OHL playoffs? Are one of Hamilton or SSM likely to make it to memorial cup, or not that strong a teams?

    The Bruins and Jacobs are worse IMO.
  18. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    I hate the leafs, Toronto, the Toronto centric media, but i despise, loathe the Bruins, their organization, their owner and everything they stand for. As much as it hurts to say so, I’d pick the leafs over the Bruins - unfortunately the Bruins will win, but IMO, the Toronto rivalry is media driven, but has been dead since 1967. The Bruins rivalry is real - they are the true enemy.

    I want the leafs out because we own their second round pick... so the sooner they are out, the higher that will be. if they make the conference finals, its not good for our pick. Same with Washington.
  24. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    We're all rooting against the Leafs harder than any other team, even against the hated Bruins, right? We want the coverage to be sad, and to avoid the arrogance and smugness that so quickly surfaces. We want the Leafs to be losers forever, don't we?

    Subban is playing with Ekholm now. He didn't during most of the season. Ekholm played with Josi when Ellis was hurt, which was more than half the season. Subban played a lot of minutes with Emelin. This again says a lot about how much the Preds rely on Subban defensively and how much they trust him. When Josi's partner was hurt, they were sure to make sure that the player beside Josi was one of their big 4 defenceman.... while promoting a bottom pair guy to play with Subban, and still trusting Subban and the bottom pair D to take the toughest zone starts and opposition.

    Burns scored almost 30 goals last year, which was like 10+ goals more than the next highest defenceman. thats the difference. When the offense is overwhelming, it is hard to argue against. Carlsson's offence wasn't overwhelming... he was barely ahead in points, and his lead was based entirely on secondary assists, as hedman and Subban beat him in primary points.
  27. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    Subban's most common linemate this season is Emelin, over 200 minutes than Ekholm: http://www.naturalstattrick.com/playerreport.php?season=20172018&stype=2&sit=5v5&stdoi=oi&rate=n&v=t&playerid=8474056 Doughty had Fobort the most, Hedman had Dotchin and Stralman.
