Hee hee. I can't remember the Preds ever having a legitimate goal scorer. Like the best you guys had for the last 5 years or so was Erat and JP Dumont, Fischer perhaps (I may be totally forgetting somebody)? Oh wait Radulov but that didn't work out and Foresberg was destroyed by injuries when he showed up for a few games. Shame. He's my favorite player and I was excited when he played against us but those ankles man...
Seriously has Nashville ever had a 40 goal scorer on their roster?

Oh looks like people have stormed back into the thread. My post was intended for n8rockerasu.

P.S.
That Backes phantom hit to the head was baffling. As a Wings fan I felt a little off after knowing it contributed to that game.


Nope...never had a 40 goal scorer. Most was Steve Sullivan, with 33 in 2008-2009. Yeah, that Forsberg trade didn't work so well. They gave up a lot to get him too. They had Paul Kariya for a few years too. They've had a lot of good players, just either not the right guy...or not at the right time.

Radulov is just a dick. I think he sees himself as an Ovechkin...without actually having to earn it. What the team is left with is a bunch of blue collar, two way players who work hard, but just don't put up a lot of goals. I'm still happy to have a team full of hard workers, but somebody has to step up and be "the guy". I'm hoping Hornqvist could be that guy if they can keep him healthy. He's been right around 30 a couple times...in less than 82 games.

I agree. I saw they called up a goalie. It's a mix of poor goal tending and soft D. How Stamkos turned over that puck still makes me scratch my head from last night. I say rebuild the team as well. Keep Stammer, Pouliot, Vinny, St. Louis and Conacher. Honestly, Conacher can hang with the big boys and I see him and Stamkos being the future of the team. Maybe they also need a new goalie coach as well. Just rebuild the whole organization. Vinick has the cash to do it.


A lot of fans seem to think that this goalie coach that they have is awful and frankly it wouldn't surprise me. When old man was playing goalie for us the past two years, he attributed his struggles to the goalie coaches suggestions. He said that once he stopped listening to the coach his play improved. I mean honestly, we worked how many years on Mike Smith? Then he goes to PHX and succeeds. Seems to happen to us. I also think part of the problem is that we have an offensive minded team but our system is geared more towards defense. I love Boucher but it may be time for him to go as well

Have to laugh at the Sabres breakdown in the third. Nice juicy rebound on the tying goal by Elias. Then Miller gets the worst of it in the shootout.

LMAO...who the Fuck are you? 2 points separates the #4 seed and the #11 seed. You act like they're just getting bombed out. As for hoping Chicago starts a 10 game losing streak, it would put the conference back into balance. And personally, it would just be funny after the start they had. If that bothers you, I've got some salty nuts you can suck on.

If we're not 12, why rip on the Preds and make fun of me for hoping that the 1st place team in their division goes on a big losing streak? Seems a little personal and uncalled for...especially when you're not even a fan of said team.

Didn't realize that the Wings only won one game against the Blue Jackets this year. What the hell? We gave the Blue Jackets 4 wins. Almost half of their wins.

Not sure why the old thread got closed...or if slickkill had any say in it, but there's definitely plenty more hockey to talk about this season. Lets start with this one



Perry given a 5 minute interference major and a game misconduct. Suspension surely to follow.

I gotta say, while the hit may not have been the most vicious ever, it was late as hell...which to me warrants any impending punishment. The timeliness of the hit is probably more dangerous, since the opposing player has let down his guard and is looking at the play going the other way.

And for those needing a refresher on Perry's head hunting history, he had a 4 game suspension for throwing an elbow on Claude Giroux back in 2009. You could probably argue that because of how hard he was coming into the corner, some contact was inevitable, but I think he saw and opportunity to light the kid up and went for it.

The last suspension was in 09? That's a long time ago. I really don't know how to judge this one. If you watch in real time from the time the puck leaves Zucker's stick only 1 second passes by so I wouldn't consider this the latest of late hits. Could this be considered a blindside hit? Probably that. He never saw Perry coming and gets caught at a point where they are intersecting from the side. I don't know. If Zucker saw him this probably would have turned out differently. Don't envy the job of the player safety department on this one.

Wasn't all that late of a hit, he should have been looking where he was going and not at the puck he just sent backwards.

Clearly targets the head, will definitely be serving time.

It looks like a tough one to call when it comes to the timing of the hit. However it does look like he did target the head and I'm not sure if it is just due to the impact or what, but it also looks like he came off the ice when he hit. Not as bad as the player from Phoenix during last years play offs, but it does look like he came off just a little bit. However like I said that could just be due to the impact.

The thing is, Perry should have been thinking about what was going to happen as he came stalking into the corner. Either A) Zucker gets rid of the puck...in which case, he's getting there late. Or B) Zucker continues along the boards with the puck, giving Perry his back, causing a hit from behind. I just don't see how Perry thought there was legal contact to be made there...and it definitely looked like he put a little extra oomph on it. It's hard to say whether he "launched" himself because it doesn't look like his skates leave the ice until after he makes contact...but I could see an argument for him pushing off as well. If anything he timed his "launch" perfectly.

And you can say it was "only one second", but Zucker had enough time to be looking at where he was trying to pass the puck and then turn back toward the direction he was moving before the hit came. But it wasn't enough time for Perry to lower the intensity of the contact? Whether he specifically targeted the head or not, I think he saw the opportunity for a big hit, and was going to go for it regardless of where the puck was or how the player was positioned.

If I read correctly the NHL put both players at fault. Perry for the obvious reasons and Zucker because he should have been paying attention. They didn't come out and say it like that however the wording “In spite of the fact that all players need to be aware of their surroundings,..." makes me think in a way they are saying it is partly his fault.
