    It's funny that everyone is saying Pierre because he is a big dumb goofball while someone like Steve Simmons who is a bitter, vindictive, borderline-terrible person is getting little traction.

    Okay, while Pierre is definitely a bit of a weiner, he's generally harmless. Shitheels like Steve Simmons who actively try to stir the pot, antagonize players, and on occasion just straight up make shit up are the worst part of hockey media.

    It's funny that everyone is saying Pierre because he is a big dumb goofball while someone like Steve Simmons who is a bitter, vindictive, borderline-terrible person is getting little traction.

    I'm sure there are other local guys in this list that are similar as well.

    Okay, while Pierre is definitely a bit of a weiner, he's generally harmless. Shitheels like Steve Simmons who actively try to stir the pot, antagonize players, and on occasion just straight up make shit up are the worst part of hockey media.

That defense was beer league level, I understand that it's Gretzky and you have to cover him, but why would both of D'men go towards him like that an leave Kurri wide open streaking up the middle? Also, that was a gold star "there was an attempt" at a save. I'm pretty sure every dude in beer league these days is better at making a save these days than that. No wonder scoring was so high back then.

    Having said all that... the handles were sick and that no look backhand pass by Gretzky was sex.

    It's an amazing pass, but my god are those players caught looking like pylons there. The backchecking winger that stops skating next to Kurri, and the other 2 that both close in on Gretzky, but not really, and are stuck in no man's land.

    Also the goalie diving out of the net entirely to try and cover deek angles I guess, but that was also par for the course back then.

  • ArtSmass
    -3 points Mar 20,2019, 5:21pm

    I'm sure I'll get plenty of downvotes for this. That defense was beer league level, I understand that it's Gretzky and you have to cover him, but why would both of D'men go towards him like that an leave Kurri wide open streaking up the middle? Also, that was a gold star "there was an attempt" at a save. I'm pretty sure every dude in beer league these days is better at making a save these days than that. No wonder scoring was so high back then.

    Having said all that... the handles were sick and that no look backhand pass by Gretzky was sex.

    I needed to figure out if 4 was an unusually high or low, so I looked up Anaheim's goaltending draft picks' wins (Anaheim also joined league 1998 20 years ago). Ducks also have just 4 goalies that fit this criteria

    John Gibson 2nd Rd Pick 2011 (39th Overall)

    Martin Gerber 8th Rd Pick 2001 (232nd Overall)

    Ilya Bryzgalov 2nd Rd Pick 2000 (44th Overall)

    Mikhail Shtalenkov 5th Rd Pick 1993 (108th Overall)

    Mainly shocking that Bryzgalov was drafted before Martin Gerber. Bryzgalov drafted at 20.0 years of age, Gerber drafted at 26.7 years of age.

    Pointless factoid of the day: Marc-Edouard Vlasic wears the most non-branded equipment in the league. Bauer did not pay this licensing fee for Easton after buying them out, so their logos had to be covered up. Pickles wears an Easton helmet, Easton pants, and Sher-Wood gloves.

    The weird part of this to me is that the NHL Regulates stick color so people don't get an unfair advantage but then they pull the colored logo off of Bobrovsky's stick which seems like it makes less noticeable on white ice and against white pads,

    Great year for me. Was living in LA then and was shocked by the King’s’ rally. Went down to Staples center for Game 6 of the finals just to be around the atmosphere if they won. Grabbed a beer and this guy came up to me and we had a brief conversation until the conversation went like this:

    Him-“how would you like to go to the game?”

    Me- “sorry I don’t have money for that, which is why I’m here.”

    Him- “No no. You don’t have to pay me. Two of my friends didn’t show so I have extra tickets and you seem like a good fan.”

    I had never been so amazed. Turns out the guy was the oral surgeon for the Kings back in the 90s and the tickets were 10 rows behind Marty.

    The Central Division was incredible that year. They just dominated the standings and I was so excited to see them all meet in the playoffs. I was so certain one of them would win the Cup.

    Then a Coyotes team which hadn't won a playoff series in decades (when they were in Winnipeg) knocked out two of them and a Kings team which couldn't score all year had one of the most dominant playoff runs in my lifetime. Hockey is weird.

  • thereeledeele

    Great season - I remember going to a Kings Blackhawks game just before the trade deadline and trying to get a “don’t trade Dustin” chant going as LA was closing out a 4-0 victory. Brown had a hat trick amidst rumors of him being shipped out - you can see in the chart the Kings are 16th - as if to say, “I’m here to stay, let’s do this.” Instead, Lombardi acquired Jeff Carter and the Kings squeaked into the playoffs in game 81, then went 16-4 and beat the top three seeds in the West before earning the Cup vs the Devils. Great year, thanks OP.

    This is the salary cap working as intended. While I'm sad that my team has been impacted by the cap a lot because we were very reckless in pursuit of cups and the rebuilding process is painful, I'm glad that there is parity in the NHL that doesn't exist in Football or Basketball. Good GMs and coaches still perform better than bad ones under these conditions and teams can wax and wane but ultimately, the draft lottery and salary cap have kept things competitive and exciting. It's good to see that no team has to be terrible forever unless they're from Canada.

    Great year for me. Was living in LA then and was shocked by the King’s’ rally. Went down to Staples center for Game 6 of the finals just to be around the atmosphere if they won. Grabbed a beer and this guy came up to me and we had a brief conversation until the conversation went like this:

    Him-“how would you like to go to the game?”

    Me- “sorry I don’t have money for that, which is why I’m here.”

    Him- “No no. You don’t have to pay me. Two of my friends didn’t show so I have extra tickets and you seem like a good fan.”

    I had never been so amazed. Turns out the guy was the oral surgeon for the Kings back in the 90s and the tickets were 10 rows behind Marty.

    The Central Division was incredible that year. They just dominated the standings and I was so excited to see them all meet in the playoffs. I was so certain one of them would win the Cup.

    Then a Coyotes team which hadn't won a playoff series in decades (when they were in Winnipeg) knocked out two of them and a Kings team which couldn't score all year had one of the most dominant playoff runs in my lifetime. Hockey is weird.

  • thereeledeele

    Great season - I remember going to a Kings Blackhawks game just before the trade deadline and trying to get a “don’t trade Dustin” chant going as LA was closing out a 4-0 victory. Brown had a hat trick amidst rumors of him being shipped out - you can see in the chart the Kings are 16th - as if to say, “I’m here to stay, let’s do this.” Instead, Lombardi acquired Jeff Carter and the Kings squeaked into the playoffs in game 81, then went 16-4 and beat the top three seeds in the West before earning the Cup vs the Devils. Great year, thanks OP.

    This is the salary cap working as intended. While I'm sad that my team has been impacted by the cap a lot because we were very reckless in pursuit of cups and the rebuilding process is painful, I'm glad that there is parity in the NHL that doesn't exist in Football or Basketball. Good GMs and coaches still perform better than bad ones under these conditions and teams can wax and wane but ultimately, the draft lottery and salary cap have kept things competitive and exciting. It's good to see that no team has to be terrible forever unless they're from Canada.

    3 constants in life:

    Death, Taxes, and the Edmonton Oilers being at the bottom of the standings

    Considering the trajectory of teams since this, Buffalo and Edmonton really stick out as teams that consistently struggle. I have confidence this will not continue, late bloomers if you will.

    Hey, that's the last time the Ducks were bad. We drafted Hampus Lindholm that year. Good thoughts!

    I think this was the year the Leafs "18-wheeler going right off a cliff" year which landed us Rielly.

    Starting the season with Jacques Martin, promoting Randy Cunneyworth as interim head coach, having Trevor Timmins as head scout and having a terrible everything happening that year, just 2 years after going to the ECF.

    That season might have been the closest the Habs ever was to experiencing Sens hockey.
