The Penguins always play better under Sullivan when they have at least five guys on IR.

A lot of superfluous camera angles on the ESPN broadcast that don't really do anything besides be distracting/make it hard to see the puck.

yeah, I like the "rush" or whatever the hell they called it that showed a "new" angle. Come on guys. There's been a lot of work put in to get the best camera angles available to broadcast games. There's probably a reason those angles aren't being used anymore.

If you bet under (it was 5.5) you were smelling like a rose with 8 minutes left, and then all hell broke loose.

Has there ever been a team with 50% of its goals as ENGs at any point during the season? I have to imagine the 1-0 lead and ENG to make it 2-0 has happened at some point in a season opener but 3/6 is wild

If you take Chuck out of the equation, Tappen, Jones and Sharpie was so much better

5 man booth is a bit much for non-football pregame

Nice to have a guy like Gretzky on the broadcast, but geez someone needs to tell him to shut up when someone scores a goal. Twice.

That Ovechkin Backstrom commercial is phenomenal. Ovechkin really is the Peyton to Brady's Crosby.

How is there only one game today, the first weekend of the regular season? It doesn't make any sense. And that game is against two teams who played last night......

Habs now 0-3. No Price or Weber. Draft is in Montreal and Shane Wright is the consensus top pick. Hmmm.
They likely won’t have that pick due to the Dvorak trade. Arizona gets the better of MTL’s two first rounders next year unless both picks end up in the top 10. It’s highly unlikely Carolina is in the top 10.

Edit lol Habs already down 2-0 to SJS less than 4 minutes in tonight

Montreal is an early season disaster, 0-4-0 having been outscored 15-3. Only team without a point. Chicago is another team in an early crisis. 0-3-1 and haven't really been competitive. Both situations were fairly predictable. Montreal sucked last year and lost Danault, Price and Weber. Chicago sucked last year and made a bunch of headline moves but seems like a classic case of a year or two too early. Colliton is probably on the hot seat given the unrealistic expectations.

The Sabres on the other hand are a cushy 3-0-0. Surprising, but they've also had an easy schedule. Montreal, Arizona and Vancouver. 6 of their next 8 games are against non-playoff teams so it wouldn't be crazy for them to hang around for another couple of weeks before the bottom falls out.

I really hope you are right, but the nhl.com article about the Dvorak trade says: "The Coyotes will receive the higher of the Canadiens' two first-round picks in the 2022 draft and a second-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft for Dvorak. If either or both of the first-round picks is in the top 10, then the Coyotes will receive the lower of the selections."
