Just in time to lock up Dumba's 750% error rate at 10 mill a year and reward Zucker's 13 goals a year a great big raise. It's shaping up nicely!

While you were speculating, Dumba had 3 more shots blocked ... and they caromed past NTG.

Suddenly, sunk back to fifth in the division, just like that.
14-10 record (sucks)
Dubnyk is 9-8 (sucks)

"That's a great game by us," said Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk. "When we play a game like that, that's just not going to happen again."
Dumb statement.
Play it the same way again, you'll lose again
Right now we have a goalie who gives up at least 4 a game.
Right now our offense cannot score more than 4 a game.
See a problem? I do.

SEA ISLAND, Ga. -- The NHL will add a 32nd franchise in Seattle, the league announced Tuesday, following a unanimous vote by the Board of Governors.

The Seattle franchise will enter the league for the 2021-22 season as a member of the Pacific Division. That will trigger a realignment that will send the Arizona Coyotes to the Central Division. The cost for league entry will be $650 million, up 30 percent from the $500 million paid by the Vegas Golden Knights to enter the NHL last season.


Awesome

Say goodbye to Greenway, Ek, etc ....

tick .... tick .... tick .......

The American Hockey League announced today that Iowa Wild goaltender Kaapo Kahkonen has been selected as the league’s CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month for November. Kahkonen is the first player in Iowa Wild history to receive an AHL monthly award.

Kahkonen allowed only 10 goals on 248 shots in eight starts during November, going 5-0-3 with a 1.21 goals-against average, a .960 save percentage and three shutouts.

Kahkonen’s month included three consecutive shutouts and a franchise-record stretch of 222:22 without surrendering a goal. After making 29 saves in a 2-1 shootout victory at Rockford on Nov. 3, Kahkonen blanked Rockford on Nov. 7 (28 saves) and Milwaukee twice on Nov. 14 (20 saves) and Nov. 16 (38 saves). He stopped 31 of 33 shots in a shootout loss at Milwaukee on Nov. 21 and was the game’s first star – his fifth first-star selection of the month – with 34 saves in a 3-2 win at Manitoba on Nov. 24.

A fourth-round pick by the Minnesota Wild in the 2014 NHL Draft, Kahkonen has a record of 6-1-3 in 10 appearances with Iowa this season and leads the AHL in goals-against average (1.45), save percentage (.950) and shutouts (3, tied). The 22-year-old native of Helsinki, Finland, played the last three seasons in the Finnish Elite League and won a gold medal with Finland at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Kahkonen will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming home game in recognition of his achievement.

As long as we hold on to Dumba and Brodin we'll be fine, just fine.

Opportunity missed.



Daniel Sprong may finally get his chance to be an offensive force in the NHL. Just not with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 21-year-old winger was traded to the Anaheim Ducks on Monday for defenseman Marcus Pettersson, ending a brief career with the Penguins that was limited to 42 games over three seasons. Pittsburgh drafted Sprong in the second round, 46th overall, in 2015.

Sprong played 16 games with the Penguins this season, registering four assists and a minus-7 rating. Pettersson, 22, was in his second season playing with the Ducks. After appearing in 22 games as a rookie, Pettersson played 27 games with Anaheim this season, with six assists and a plus-4 rating. He averaged 14:01 in ice time.

Daniel Sprong tallied 261 points in 199 QMJHL games, and had 65 points in 63 AHL games, but didn't get much ice time with the Penguins. Gregory Shamus/Getty Images

Pettersson will be a restricted free agent with no arbitration rights this summer. Sprong is in the first year of a two-year deal that carries a $750,000 cap hit, and will have arbitration rights after the 2019-20 season.

Sprong has long been championed by Penguins fans who wanted to see a greater role for the forward. He was an offensive dynamo in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the Charlottetown Islanders, scoring 261 points in 199 games, and he had 65 points in 63 games for the AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins last season.

But Sprong was buried by the Penguins and coach Mike Sullivan during his time in Pittsburgh. Sprong only averaged 9 minutes and 40 seconds of ice time in his brief NHL career. He only cracked 10 minutes of ice time in two of his 16 games this season.

Sullivan would say it was situational, to a certain extent.

"We're trying to put guys on the ice that give us the best chance to have success in certain situations. And so, the way the schedule has unfolded to this point, there have been times where we have shortened the bench," Sullivan told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in October. "It's not always our intent going into games but certainly performance has some influence on the decisions the coaches make."

Sprong averaged 1.66 points per 60 minutes at 5-on-5 over 24 games in the last two seasons. Sample size being what it is, that ranked him 10th among Penguins forwards.

Same expansion rules to be followed as they did when Vegas came in. Exact same.

Seattle will play in the Pacific, Arizona will move to the Central.

If it's bold the Flyers want, Fletcher can be bold. Sometimes that meant a home run like trading fan favorite Cal Clutterbuck and a third-round pick to the Islanders in 2013 for Nino Niederreiter. Sometimes that meant a less successful trade, like sending Brent Burns and a second-round pick to the San Jose Sharks for Charlie Coyle, Devin Setoguchi and a first-round pick in 2011.

Then there was the move that would define his time in Minnesota: signing defenseman Ryan Suter and winger Zach Parise to 13-year, $98 million free-agent deals in 2012.

Those signings were meant to be the cornerstone for a championship team. But while Fletcher's teams made the playoffs in a difficult Central Division, they never played for a title.

"It is an honor to join the Flyers, an iconic NHL franchise, and I would like to thank Dave Scott and Paul Holmgren for entrusting me to guide the team forward," Fletcher said. "Adding to my excitement is the high level of talent that is in place, which sets this opportunity apart and will pay dividends as we move the organization ahead and ultimately compete for a championship."

Zucker gets back on the board
Greenway was outstanding
Held on even after we stopped playing offense
Another important two points on Thursday now
Simply cannot let up. Have to have all of these.

Seattle must be drooling over the prospect of an expansion draft deal with the Flyers. In case anyone is interested, Alex Tuch has 8 G, 12 A, 20 pts and is +7 in 21 games after missing the start of the season.

Which Tuch's current pace projects out to 31 G, 47 A & 78 pts over 82 games. Not to mention, he is big and physical. But, hey we protected Brodin and he is so ... he does ... anybody?

9. Minnesota Wild

Previous ranking: 7

Over the past two seasons, Charlie Coyle has been struggling to find his game. Being exposed in the expansion draft could be the motivation he needs to find confidence again

Why doesn't he get 4th-lined or "boothed"?

I don't understand.

Too nice?

Tough one in Calgary.
Sucks that they are figuring it out there
One more West team to overcome.
Stalock was the only thing keeping that thing under 6-0
They're scoring about 8 a game lately, and he kept us in the game.

Got real ugly at the end ... glad to see the boys rally around the cheap shot on Koivu
Dumba almost ended one of their guys' careers coming out of the zone with his head down
One of their dingleballs comes off the bench and goes after Dumba (who refuses to fight) and chaos ensues.
if we had a guy leave the bench for that, he'd be gone for a month. What say you, Bettmann?

Keep doing one of three and we might start seeing some better drafts for the future. Not too up on the present currently so may as well hope for the future.

The wheels are falling off.....
Duh-Oh-Duby back to stay?
Miko done with a bump knee?
Nobody able to take Miko's spot and no quality centers in the pipeline?
Every team in the league knows Fenton is between a rock and a hard spot so it's going to be hard to make a trade that will actually help.
Starting to look like bottoming out just might not be so bad......
