So apparently Jack Campbell was not on the list when it came to considering who would be the goalies going to the Olympics. So not even the #4 or 5 option lul.

So I wonder how ****ing good did he have to play to make the list lul.

Good thing for him is NHL players aint going to the Olympics

I mean it’s not that surprising. He’d only been the 1A for less than 20 games because he only stole the lead job partway through last year, and he was backed by the best team in a weak division, and then proceeded to not win the first round (not his fault, but he didn’t clutch up either). His track record was not really that good. A career backup finally moving into a tandem role at 28 isn’t exactly a no-brainer for the USA. Hellebuyck/Gibson/Demko were no-brainers, and the last two spots were probably 2 of Knight (young up and comer who everybody had pegged as the breakout candidate), Bishop (Vezina calibre if healthy), Quick (veteran), or Petersen (young goalie taking the reins as the 1A, which is more appealing than an older goalie doing the same). There really wasn’t much reason to have him on the long list. I would have gone with Hellebuyck/Gibson/Demko/Knight/Bishop personally. And I don’t think that all NHLers not going to the Olympics is “good for him” lmao

Bellows has 11 pts in 34 career games averaging 4th line minutes. All of his points at 5v5. No PP time despite that being his biggest strength. Everyone assumes he’s a bust because he hasn’t gotten a fair shot, he can definitely be a 2nd liner who puts up 20-25 G , 45-50 Pts. I bet he could be had for a 3rd rd pick , possibly less.

I’m assuming this is about Montréal’s former front office, because otherwise this is very confusing.

On the topic of logos, is there anyone on here who's not familiar with the duality of the Wild's logo?

Minnesota Wild

How it's a forest landscape but also the head of a bear.

Feel like it's just one of those experiences that we all share, where you didn't notice it at first but one day it's either pointed out or just clicks in your brain and you're just blown away. You don't see it until you do and then you can't un-see it.


Really? People missed that? I mean, not to sound obnoxious, but of course it's both a landscape+bear head. That's the point, isn't it? Because they're both "Wild?" (Also should be noted if people haven't noticed it that the mouth of the bear doubles as a river for the forest)

A lot of people don't notice. I didn't for a few years after I started watching hockey. Of course it's the point and the intention of the person who created it, but how many NHL logos do you see that with? It's an easy thing to miss if your brain initially just sees the landscape. You just accept it for what it is and don't care to look any further.

It's a brilliant logo, no doubt about that

Good thing we didn't. Ever since he was moved to top 6 LW, he has been so much better then when he played as our 3c. Honestly would not shock me if he gets back to 40 points.

I mean it does differ a bit, playing with Tavares and Nylander instead of the likes of Ritchie and Kase lol. If he doesn't get 40 points with these guys it would be a disappointment.

Man, CF is so slow today, definitely not because it’s Christmas Eve/Christmas ( depends on Timezones )

Yep, but still during his time as a 3c he was with Engvall and Mikheyev. So I often give him a break as these guys are a tad inconsistent

With Ritchie and Kase got to think he would do better as both those guys be better than the guys above. RN I think 35-45 points is in the realm of possibility but either way been pretty happy with his play.

Merry Christmas to everyone, coming from the Maritimes where it’s actually midnight.

Only @justaBoss ahead of me, he’s probably opening gifts with his family as we speak, or sleeping like a lazy f*ck (don’t worry bro I do the same, but probably like 10 times worse, my sleep schedule is worse than Blake Comeau’s career).

Man to bad for Trotz and his grizzled old ways as imagine Oliver Wahlstrom doing this during an actual game. It would be talked about for days.

Question to everyone here

Who is the best player in the world outside NHL right now? Was having a discussion with my brother about the issue tonight, and I promised to ask some feedback from some other people watching hockey (you guys basically lol).

When Kaprizov was playing in KHL he was the easy answer but now we're in a bit of a pickle as we haven't really reached any kind of consensus on this matter. Is the best one even playing in KHL, or perhaps in juniors or possibly in University or something like that? Maybe in Switzerland.

Throw me some ideas about the issue. I'm positive we could figure out better names than Vadim Shipachyov.

Additional note: anyone answering Blake Comeau to this question deserves to have wet socks on them for the rest of the Christmas week lol
