John Scott being an all star is fucking disgusting. He has no place in the NHL and probably does not belong in the AHL either. He should have never had the privilege of being voted for in the all star game.
There are several stars left off the ASG roster because of this incompetent wannabe 90's enforcer who is outdated and the game has left him behind. How the fuck does this guy get in over Crosby, Datsyuk and Getzlaf? These guys are world beaters and fucking John Scott gets in, that's outrageous.
Pic related: It's this fat fuck who weighs 300 lbs, and belongs on /r9k/ rather than playing hockey. This is all your fault 4chan.
>he hasn't been on /hoc/ for a relevant (read: not juniors) international tournament
>How the fuck does this guy get in over Crosby, Datsyuk and Getzlaf? These guys are world beaters and fucking John Scott gets in, that's outrageous
because literally nobody cares, not the fans or the elite players that have to play a meaningless meme game while they're buddies get time off
this is fucking great man. the all star game should from now on only be mediocre washed up never-weres. we get to watch meme hockey that's so fucking terrible it might actually be good and the star players finally get to fuck off for like a few days
I love waking up to good news.
Who here is excited for a Capitals versus Kings final this year?
> Muh Kopitar
They're not Bruins/Canucks tier yet, but I can't think of anyone outside LA who likes the Kongs. Accept the fact that people wanna see enforcers back and deal with it.

Thanks for roasting the ducks Leaf anon. I'll see you guys at Saturday 4 PM at the Shark Tank.
What will the score be on CBC's Leafs Night in Canada game?
>bag of pucks for a pending ufa and a guy thats determined to make one last run for the cup that is retiring at end of season while still holding half their salary
wew lad, thought you canadians were knowledgeable about hockey
If he doesn't retire then the Flyers are stuck paying for half of him. Which isn't a big deal. He is pretty cheap and good enough for the 3rd line while Carter is out.
Schenn will be a great replacement for Matt Greene.
All of this paid 50% by the Flyers for a meaningless draft pick and a player Sutter was never going to play
I'd much rather have a meme ass all-star game that was hilarious like the shit Ovechkin did last time, desu. Having a couple John Scotts could be pretty great if they have the personality to bring entertainment to it. I'm just worried the meme will translate to the All-Star Game becoming the John Scott Game.

Reminder that the Pittsburgh Penguins goal horn is LITERALLY a brony anthem:
For always giving the Kings what they need to win a cup? Yep.
You realize Hextall is literally brilliant right? After this season he just freed 18M in cap space for them. That's fucking incredible and even has a new prospect that has some promise.
>goalie stops that shot
>Putin sees is he can stop this one
I'm happy to see him back, lad had 6 goals before he was injured, which was almost keeping pace with the blessed 4 at that time: Lar-kun, Goose, Tatar, and Abby (pbuh)
Not to mention, the pure memeing potential is well worth it.
>beaners/armenians damage controlling for almost 24 hours now
top fucking kek
That's good, haven't heard much about the picks lately.
Anyone know how some of the other prospects are doing, like Mantha and especially malkin lite?
>only -30c and the refugees are already complaining
GM of the year?
I'm just comparing the value of their positions. It's quite obvious you're a shit team without a good goalie. Scoring can be done by anyone. I understand Stamkos is an elite scorer, but stopping pucks is way more valuable.

I know successfull business owners who have to move back in with mom. Everyone lives with mom at 30.

You think Trump likes hockey? Will he annex Canada and put them out of their misery? Will that finally fix Canada's meme economy and with it the salary cap?
>implying we can stop the massive flow of dumb beaners from central america sneaking kids across and abandoning them
Tbqph aside from Mexico you could nuke central america and the world wouldn't change. Dirt poor, shitty ass country. No education. No skilled labor. It's the Africa of the Americas. Fuck them.
>beaners are still salty about hexy's dick in their mouth
W A L L
Fuck Hondurans desu, they just walk around with those little meme rattails and act like they're cartel affiliated, even though they fled their home """country """ where every third person is murdered annually.
Mexicans can stay as long as they don't act like that, they aren't like those stinky smelly jungle spics.
That means you are safe for now, Kings fans.
First and second generation Mexicans are pretty god tier tbqh. Hard working, really friendly, willing to help you out if you need it, and make some fucking awesome food. Third generation has been utter shit tier though.
Depends if Johansen stops being such a lazy self-entitled whiny cunt or not. Also Jones likely has a higher upside, desu. He's only 21 and defensemen usually peak late. He could potentially be really, really fucking good.

MacKinnon should definitely be #1 in the draft. Bustak0v is finally improving. It seems like Jagr and the veterans in Florida are really helping him a shit ton.
Drouin is a walking meme though,.
Oh boy, more mega autists to add to the filter.
Steve is just playing the long con and sabotaging their team before coming home to GM for Detroit after Kenny retires tbqh.
>implying us fans want philly to make the playoffs
We /Tank4Laine/ now
Also, you got fleeced in that trade. Schenn is a decent 3rd pairing defenceman who tries to force plays and causes a lot of turnovers. Then there's Vinny, who can't even outskate Eric Gryba lmao. Have fun with the garbage
I'm sorry how many cups does your hew franchise have? How many playoff appearances? How many spics and nignogs are in Florida even know hockey's a sport?
>tfw grandpa is on 9 % kidney support.

Sorry to hear that, I hope they'll be fine and that /hoc/ can be a decent way of getting your thoughts on other things from time to time in the meantime.
I thought jones could have gone 2nd but more realistically 3rd behind barkov and Mackinnon. Can you imagine if Florida had Ekblad and Jones? Fuck me that's a scary defense pairing.
At least you retards finally look like a real hockey team.
Consider the following
>philly is shit
>coaches are shit too
>plus shit fans
And then there is the Kings
>great coaching staff
>mediocre players flourish
This is why the Kings won the trade
Examples: Carter and Richards :)))
>mfw the thought of Luongo with a good blue line in front of him and an offense that won't let him down

Kingsbro here, haven't been on in a while
Just wanted some Jersey advice. I want to get another Kings jersey, but (like before) I can't decide who to get. I really want a Kopitar jersey, but Doughty is also an option, then I could always go for the classic Gretzky
>mfw I downloaded NHL Legacy for 32 bucks (regular 80 in this shit country),
and after roster updtates, still no updates in Live The Life mode, which is all I play in this shit.
I'm playing in the WHL but I wanted to see how mcjesus was doing but he doesn't even exist. What a waste of 32 dollars
post yfw there's a game-worn Eichel jersey bidding for over $6000 on NHL Auctions RIGHT NOW
I only want to buy one jersey for now though. Should I risk it and get the Kopitar Jersey or play it safe with Doughty
The jersey i already own is a 2015 Stadium Series Toffoli jersey. I liked him a lot last year, thought he could really break out this season. Damn, I love being right.
Here's 10 reasons why you're wrong.
>Extending Leighton for 3.1/2
>Giving Chris 'Broken Brain' Pronger a 7-year deal
>Trading Simon fucking Gagne for Matt Walker
>Giving Randy Jones a 5.5m contract, then waiving him immediately, only to pull him back up and have him claimed by the fucking Kings while being stuck with dead space
>Signing Vinny at all
>Trading Scottie Upshall for fucking Carbomb
Homer was straight up the worst GM the NHL has seen in a long time desu.
Maybe this is just the poor (not really lel) college student in me saying this, but
Save your damn money and stop making impulse purchases :^P
If you have a jersey already then that's all ya "need"
This. Holmgren really fucked the team with the AMac contract and that'll probably define his time in Philly but other than that (no one could've predicted Vinny's falloff/Pronger's injury and Bryz was something Snider wanted to happen) he was pretty good. Just too many NMCs and overpaying for mediocre players.
>Pronger to a 7-year deal
>trading for Matt Walker
Kek evry tim
Pronger was already old as fuck and busted by the time Homer re-signed him. The physical style he played his entire career really fucked him up. Giving him a 7 year was absolutely retarded.
>Giving Chris 'Broken Brain' Pronger a 7-year deal
>implying he wasn't still god tier when they signed him
Doesn't even show up if you google him lel.
>Giving old players long ass contracts ever
Fucking retarded m8 and this is why you should never be a GM.
EA is shit, stop supporting them dammit
Just a thought brah
Hello, are any teams out there looking to trade shit players?
i-it's just genetics
they didn't pump him full of drugs in america
that's just how his jaw naturally looks like
>Richards to the Capitals
Jesus fucking Christ, still can't get over this. The Caps were fine before, now they're going to force an old, washed-up Richards into the 4th line center role to do basically nothing, hoping to give him life.
It's a 1 year 1 million dollar contract. The caps have literally nothing to lose. If he sucks it's only 1 million for this year. I honestly don't think it's a bad move. He might not be that great but he certainly provides leadership.
no i meant the mom of sami and kimmo if they turned out looking like that with a father like this
That's probably an insult, but if not, huomenta to you too...
Gaborik was 32 when the trade happened and was still playing at a respectable level when the trade happened
Lecalvier is almost 36, hasn't had a decent season since 2012 and gets scratched for career AHLers
I think it means "goodmorning" in finnish.
I implied you just woke up because Lemmy died like a week ago
to be fair, Lecalvier has never played a decent season with the Flyers. His play dropped off right after he left Tampa, so maybe put him with somebody with competent abilities and he might turn it around
I still don't have high hopes for Vinny. Schenn was a good pickup, now that Greene is out for the year.
He's played top line minutes with Giroux and Voracek. He's had lots of chances to play on a very dangerous PP unit. Any situation you put him in, he's an anchor to his linemates. Gun to his head he couldn't win you a faceoff. Other things Vinny can't do:
>battle for pucks in the corner
>make smart defensive plays in his own end
>score you goals in any situation
Guy's a late bust, sorry bud.
I think he could be an alright 3rd pairing guy if he was paired with someone okay. He was gone at the end of the year anyway so at least they got something for him. Obviously given his draft position and then the first trade for him two different (one of then Holmgren though) GMs have seen a ton of potential in him so there might be something more there.
His career is effectively done. He's never going to make money like he used to. He's won his cup and gold medal, I don't think he cares about playing anymore. Unless he's short on cash I don't see him playing much longer.
>tfw all these autists are talking about millionaires making more millions and I'm stuck here making less than freeloader welfares make and my grandpa and grandma are on their death bed. fuck
I just got 950 eurobucks from the welfare people for the simple reason of being broke (no disabilities or anything) and am browsing some weed to order online :)
He's 30. I would imagine he still wants to play hockey. Obviously he won't be playing any top line minutes or making 6 a year but he can still play in the nhl. I don't think it's a nice feeling going from Olympic gold and Stanley Cups to where nobody fucking wants you. I'm sure he wants to be a regular nhl player again.
Don't bully, that's all they have to be hopeful in Buffalel.
Just listen to how hard their play by play announcer loses his mind on this Eichel goal
>tfw I'll probably never see that again in my life.
Jesus Christ, that was ten years ago.
Holy fucking shit I still can't believe Hextall was able to trade Vinny
Probably the most useless player in the NHL 2bh. Slower than Eric fucking Gryba lmao
I hope so. Memearin should be disqualified for being 24, and Lar-kun is better than Kikel and Domi atm.
McMeme maybe if he comes back and gets hot, Bettman is probably flicking his bean just thinking about it.
>Johansen: literally the happiest guy in the world
>Jones: smiling through the pain
McMeme won't win the Calder he has way too much ground to make up. It would be better if he's injured for longer which makes him inelligeable and he can win it next year. But at the end of the day it's irrelevant because he's far and away the best player out of those names.
I don't think you understand. He was the slowest player on the Flyers roster. Think about that. People were saying Lucic wont do good in the WCF because he's so slow. Vinny's only decent quality is his shot, but he never gets a chance to shoot because he's complete shit otherwise. Kongs fans are just doing damage control because they lost the trade.
Would bett-yid allow a player who wasn't the top scorer win it if he did well outside of an injury?
Or better yet, would he give the Calder to a player who had the most goals/best plus minus but didn't constantly touch the puck before Patrick Kane scored a goal?

We have some of the top forwards in hockey, saad, Jenner, hartnell
We still have great players in the ahl like Rychel, listen we have great players but we don't have the right chemistry
>Johansen impressed with linemates during first practice
>Jones on the other hand, has a thousand yard stare in his first media photos
I'm genuine happy for Johansen, especially since it took him 4 fewer years to move compared to Rick Nash
the BJ's have been not so delicately dropped into Nick Foligno's hands.
He needs to become an actual leader instead of top Kekalainen's on-ice spokes person.
Bob can't save us and made it clear that he won't.
Saad doesn't deserve to be leaned on either.
tl;dr: Good fucking luck Jones. Give your teammates hell.
I was never taught growing up so I am only self taught. I can only do crossovers in one direction but can skate backwards just fine. Never cared to learn more since all I do is play shinny with my buddies.
Why isn't Germany a more elite hockey country like Finland and Sweden. If they can produce one talent like pic related, surely they can produce more.
Anyone else think he looked like the Great Hambino from Sandlot?
