fair assesment. At least maple leafs lived up to expectations unlike tampa bay. I feel like tampa got betrayed by the russian mentality of their star players. They expended too much energy during regular season and now when it comes down to bussiness they cant handle getting outplayed (actually they outplay themselves)
2019-04-16 20:31
+1, also i dont like what kucherov did, honestly missing your best player is a big hit, even if you have that many good players on ur team. Tampa just doesn't have a lot of poise, which imo is the issue then again GODWILD beat them 3 - 0 with a hat-trick from GODSON ZUCKER

You know the only reason why Kucherov did something that ugly was that young defenseman he could not go pass by so he needed to do something stupid. Respect to NUTIVAARA \,,/

I mean, from what I saw, wild weren't too shabby this season. Do they not make the playoffs usually or what?
2019-04-16 20:34
they do but dont get past round 1
2019-04-16 20:54
they usually make playoffs, then just dip in round 1, tbh trading fiala for granlund was kinda slow, wild also has a hard time drafting, imo there best pick in recent history was dumba, and all time koivu (good players, but not outstanding) They did get kaprizov, but idk how he'll pan out, or if he'll even come to the NHL

2019-04-12 16:19
#28
 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
Barkov is not even close and kucherov had a fluke season, I'd say mcdavid is a whole level above the whole league. I doubt kucherov is ever gonna have a season as good as this one again, while I know for a fact mcdavid will continue scoring over 100 points with ease.
2019-04-12 16:21
barkov is better on defending and btw aho, lundell and petterson has got potential to be the best
2019-04-12 16:24

 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
While they have the potential, Mcdavid is already the best and hasnt even reached his full potential yet. None of them come close to mcdavid's level of skill. Nobody in the league is able to do stuff that McDavid does. Nobody else can handle the puck while maintaining such a speed. He is the fastest player in the history of nhl.
2019-04-12 16:26
i mean he is the best overall rn but for example pavel bure was easily faster than him
2019-04-12 16:28
#33
 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
Lmao, not even close. Mcdavid is easily faster than bure was. EDIT: with the puck mcdavid is the fastest player in the nhl history without a question. And without the puck its a little bit closer but he is still the fastest skater ever to play in nhl.
2019-04-12 16:35

Switzerland meme_jesus 
Also: Connor McDavid is the fastest ever recorded in NHL history both in-game carrying the puck, and he has the fastest ever time in an all-star skills comp red line to red line. In game carrying the puck he has hit 41.02 kmh. The second place guy is Pavel Bure in game going 37 kmh, this is done by tsn and Sportsnet they use new technology to show how fast players are going from ALL video tape era's.

41 km/h with the puck my friend. I think that's insane. For example some players can't even reach that speed without the puck.
2019-04-16 21:46
Ouh with the puck maybe, i am not a good ice hockey player, so hard for me to judge, you know how fast they can skate without the puck?
2019-04-17 07:52
#279
 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
Id say honestly about the same speed. Mcdavid maybe a little faster like 44km/h but everyone else like 41km/h at best. There was a speed measurement in all star skating competition and some players werent able to match that speed even without the puck.

Kucherov has had 100 point seasons 2 years in a row, and this last season he had 12 more points than McDavid. So i would say McDavid and kucherov are pretty even
2019-04-12 19:22
#91
 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
Kucherov also has a better team around him. If really mcdavid was in kucherov's positions his points would sky rocket. Mcdavid is still a level above anyone in the league.
2019-04-12 19:23
#94
 | 
Libya Neroz44 
Yeah kucherov has a better team around him, which is why Mcdavid averages 3 more minutes a game than kucherov. TBL splits more time between the lines because they have very good depth. If kucherov was playing as much as mcdavid, he would have way more points.
2019-04-12 19:25
#96
 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
Not to say that mcdavid missed 4 games this season. And yeah, if kucherov had more minutes then he'd have more points. But if he had the same amount of minutes as mcdavid in Edmonton he wouldnt stand a chance. It makes a big difference having a way better team around you consisting of players that have no problem scoring from a good pass.
2019-04-12 19:27
#97
 | 
Libya Neroz44 
I mean honestly neither of us know how well kucherov would perform on EDM, but the fact that he got 12 more points while playing around 150 less minutes is enough proof for me that they are definitely comparable. But then again most my knowledge is from playing fantasy hockey and watching games here and there. I don’t consistently watch either one play.
2019-04-12 19:31
kucherov is the better play (18-19 season), but mcdavid was the more important player, imo steven stamkos was the most important player of the lightning
2019-04-12 19:34
#99
 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
Well if you'd seen mcdavid play then you would definitely know what im talking about when I say that McDavid is level above anyone in the league. He can do stuff that nobody really can. And imo 4 more games > 3 more minutes a game. I do consider this a fluke season from kucherov tho, doubt he will have the same amount or more points next season, while I only expect mcdavid to have more points. I guess we'll see next season. Really can't start comparing players just based on one season.
2019-04-12 19:35
McDavid is definitely the most skilled player in NHL right now, kucherov is great elite player, but McDavid is like messi in football, Kucherov maybe like Cavani or Aguero to compare. Kucherov have the best team around him, so he automatically gets advantage in points. McDavid plays in team where only good players are Draisaitl and Nugent-Hopkins. However Pavel Bure was faster than McDavid, i dont care about that video tape bullshit you mention before, but if you watch Bure, when he played, you can see it he was faster. And i think every hockey ppl can confirm this.

Switzerland meme_jesus 
All the analysts say that they saw bure and they know that McDacid is faster. He also has the fastest recorded speed in a match. Not only that, but the equipment is also MUCH better than when bure played and it gives mcdavid a big advantage. It doesnt even make sense anymore to say that bure was faster than mcdavid. He wasnt.
2019-04-15 14:32
You obviously dont know what youre talking about. That on show purposes made speed competition in all-star happening doesnt tell how fast can a player accelerate and skate straight forward in a game.

Bure last played in 2003. If that guy saw him play im guessing it was in his prime when he was actually fast, so around the year 2000. If he was like 10 yo around that time, then it means he is 28-29 years old. If he is that old and sitll on HLTV then that's really fucking sad. I was only assuming for the better.

2019-04-12 17:31
Dylan Larkin, Forward. As a link to the new-wave of speedy forwards, Larkin holds the claim of being the fastest skater in league history. Aided by a skating start, Larkin turned in a record lap of 13.172 seconds during the 2016 NHL Fastest Skater competition.

With a head start? Go watch mcdavid's best time vs larkin's best time and you see that larkin had a head start while mcdavid was starting from standing still. Just shows that you don't know much :)

youtube.com/watch?v=symFOXEZitM Larking started from the blue line and the timer started at the red line, while mcdavid was starting normally from the red line along with the timer. Larkin should have never won the fastest skater of all time in the first place. Shit show.
2019-04-15 17:06
With all respect, im pretty sure you are some 16yo mcdavid fanboy, who ignore all the facts that doesnt support your wishes. Im 100% sure you never saw bure play, and im sure you dont know much about hockey at all, just pick mcdavid to be hes fan becouse hes the best atm.

Dont you understand that mcdavid is just faster? Even the equipment got better so bure has no fucking chance. Idk if bure would be faster in the current equipment but just because of this the winner is already decided. Dont try to tell me that you are better than some fucking professional analysts that are getting paid for watching this fucking game. They were growing up watching these players dont you realize? Even the coaches admitted mcdavid is the fastest player they've ever seen. Your words have no weight here kid, you can say anything you want. McDavid is faster than bure was. /close
2019-04-15 17:26
:DD Youre funny mate. That the equipment is slightly better this days, doesnt mean he couldnt be faster even with old equip. The difference is not that big. Also stating that "all analysts would say mcdavid is faster than bure was" is actually just bullshit. People who saw bure live, tell exactly opposite.

They saw bure live. Go and google some discussions on this topic (mcdavid vs bure speed). Because i didn't see Bure play that's my only source along with some youtube videos, and almost all the analysts think McDavid is faster, including some coaches as well.

F*cking kids always only looking at the points they make... Can a goalkeeper or defensemen ever be as good as McJesus or Nikita Kucharuvka who just scores 100 points but doesn't help the team in their defense at all? I would still say McJesus is currently the best but he is not far from Barkov who rules the whole ice. Only things McDavid is better at is speed and shooting but everything else goes to Barkov. You will see Sasha will carry Florida finally to Playoffs!

Blues have way more playoff experience, as well as they are very hot right now. Calgary rarely has been doing anything in the playoffs. 2016 failed to make it, 2017 swept by the ducks first round, 2018 failed to make it. But yeah I think the chances of flames winning is about equal with blues.

1. Jagr 2. Elias 3. Krejci 4. Hejduk 5. Straka Edit: I was not taking into account goalies
2019-04-12 19:19
Bro, you must have Pastrnak on on your list even tho he is still young, Also idk why Krejci there so high. I would put on my fast list 1.Jagr the legend ofcourse 2.Elias 3.Hejduk 4.Pastrnak 5.Straka Most likely Pastrnak will be higher on the list after he been playing some years more, hes definitely one of the best goalscorers in NHL already.
2019-04-15 11:12

He can’t be a best player until further into his season, I’m sorry. Krejci is up there because he has had a great career
2019-04-15 15:41
I never said best, Jagr and Elias are long way to go, but pastrnak is definitely better than krejci

“TOP5 players all time”
2019-04-15 18:45
Yeah, and its pretty easy to say pastrnak has shown already more than krejci during his whole career. Pastrnak is exceptional talent, Krejci just a average professional player. With all respect to Krejci, hes career high is 23 goals, meanwhile Pastrnak scored 38 this season despite of missing almost 20 games cause of injury. He also scored 34+ on 3 straight seasons, and been going only upwards season by season.
2019-04-16 11:11

Libya Neroz44 
He has 653 career points so far, I’m not even going to other to check Pastrnak. You don’t know if a player is the one of the best of all time (of this country) or in general until they have played more games.
2019-04-16 15:08
Yeah he have 643 points (194goal) in 850 game, meanwhile pastrnak have 284points (132goals) in 320 game. Krejci been played 10 seasons already, Pastrnak only 3 full seasons ofcourse he have more points. But being playing longer doesnt make an average player to a star. Krejci is an average player, Pastrnak is a star.
2019-04-16 17:13
#202
 | 
Libya Neroz44 
But pastrnak has only played 320 games so he can’t be one of the greatest yet
2019-04-16 18:44
Theres no reason why. But i wouldnt put him above hejduk and elias yet. He already proved himself to all and shown already way more than krejci ever could in 10 year. After time he probably will be the 2nd after Jagr, but for that he need more years for real.
2019-04-16 19:30
1. Jagr 2. elias 3. Krejic 4. patrnak 5. voracek (idk czech hockey that well, did i miss anyone?)

McDavid has only played several seasons, you can’t even determine if he is goat. But he definitely has a chance. Maybe one of the best offensive players to play the game. We will see.

2019-04-12 19:22
True saw some of his highlights, smooth hands. I think it will be though for him with only 75 kgs to play C. Even Pettersson with his 80kgs looks too skinny for hockey player. I hope that NJD picks Hughes, in that case leaving Kakko to one of my favorite teams, haha.
2019-04-12 20:36

Probably around a 10% chance. It’s possible, but they have been getting outplayed by the islanders. The penguins have had lots of experience in the playoffs, so they need to use their talent and experience to win one game at a time. But the islanders are looking very solid right now.

Meh, I think whoever wins the series has good chance of Stanley cup. The western conference is weaker than the east. My personal favorites in order are 1. Bruins 2. Capitals 3. Maple Leafs 4. Blues 5. Jets 6. Flames 7. Islanders 8. Predators 9. Golden Knights 10. Sharks 11. Stars 12. Blue Jackets 13. Lightning 14. Penguins 15. Avalanche 16. Hurricanes
2019-04-15 19:01
Golden knights should be higher. I think they will win in the west

Libya Neroz44 
Blues are a more experienced team Flames are a more skilled team Predators are a more experienced team Jets are a more skilled team Basically every team I have given a higher chance to win the cup got 6 or more points in the regular season than the Golden Knights. Teams like Predators and Blues have made playoffs very consistantly and have lots of experience, aswell as having a better season the the Golden Knights. The Jets and Flames dont have as much experience in the playoffs, but imo have a much more skilled lineup than the knights. The Golden Knights have only been to the playoffs once, and yes they did make it far, but imo that was a fluke. These are my personal rankings, so im going off my ideology, but i really think that they are pretty accurate. Now that i think back on it, i would change 6->7 Flames 8->6 Predators 7->9 Islanders 9->8 Golden Knights

Imo the golden Knights are worse than blue, jets, and predators. Only reason I have them at 6, is because they only need to play 1 of the 3 team I named, where as the other team all have to fight for a spot in the wcf.
2019-04-16 20:49
idk, vegas has some decent center depth, and imo no other team in the league can keep up with there speed, i think theyt'll shred slow, teams like boston, sharks, etc. Also with imo the best goalie behind rinne. bob, and price (still top1 imo, but close to being dethroned) They can do some real damage

Nashville compared to Vegas 1st Line Forwards - Predators better 2nd line forwards - Golden Knights much better 3rd line forwards - Slightly favors Golden Knights 4th line forwards - Predators better 1st line Defense - predators much better 2nd line defense - predators much better 3rd line defense - golden knights better Goalie - Predators slightly better
2019-04-16 20:57
true, i think it'll be a challenge beating nashville, since nashville can keep up with there speed unlike sharks (which imo is why i think they're gonna win the series)

If they don't win The Cup, they should trade him now to get very good price and they already have Saros waiting to take that 1st goalie seat

That is what I’m thinking, I’m just wondering what they can get for rinne, and how much confidence they have in saros

They should get a 2nd or 3rd round pick and some prospect or maybe a 2-3 line forward But we will see, they still have a change if they can beat Sasha Radulov & Miro "HeisQ" Heiskanen B)

First overall pick will be Hughes 90% chance, but I feel like kakko will be the better player at least in the first year. I also think kakko fits in NYR better than Hughes, as well as Hughes fitting in better on NJD than kakko I definitely want podkolzin to be picked by the hawks. The hawks need a right winger. With podkolzin we could have the following lines Saad-Toews-Kane DeBrincat-Strome-Podkolzin Keith-Gustafsson Jokiharju-Boqvist Blackhawks should make the playoffs next year, and with young talent coming up, I think the blackhawks should be able to make the playoffs consistently throughout the next 5 years. Right now I’m not confident in Corey Crawford, but we will see how he performs.

did you like Grabowski back in the days? that's my belarusian nigga
2019-04-17 12:27
he's had some odd years, doing really well then just dropping like 20 points the next season
2019-04-17 15:59
yeah and then injures didn't let him play in WCups, feelsbadman

when he was 27 he got 58 points, which is solid in the nhl. I thought he would be a solid second liner, but I guess he got injured?

1) thoughts on Rangers? do they have any chance for the playoffs next season? 2) Georgiyev or Lundqvist?
2019-04-17 16:03
rangers have a bright future, and now have the ability to draft kakko, even tho imo they should draft byram. Lundqvist imo, but gerogiyev could be there future in net

Rangers have been going for a rebuild. Then getting second overall pick decreases the time it will take to get a strong team. They have lots of young players, and when they all start progressing into solid players, the rangers will have a good team. If I was the GM of the rangers I would want Georgiyev in net, so that he can get more experience and become an elite goaltender, but lundqvist is probably still better and from a coaching perspective you want your better goalie playing. Georgiyev will definitely be their goalie for their rebuild into a good team. Next year time will probably be split
2019-04-17 19:03
+1, imo i would trade henrik to a team planning on making a playoff run so he has a chance, i feel bad for players like him and joe thorton

Pretty solid team. They will struggle against blues, and if they manage to beat the blues, they have an even harder task against the predators. But they are not a bad team.
2019-04-17 19:10
+1. If they go against preds they need to be at their 100%. Even then its gonna be hard matchup..

Ok then if you are playing comp in csgo. You start the round with 5,250 as a t. You buy a p90 (cuz u a silver) a decoy, a he grenade and 2 flashes and head and body armor. You get 2 kills 1 with p90 and 1 with a he grenade your teammate plants the bomb and you lose the round. How much money do you have starting the next round?
