Roman Polak just left the ice on a stretcher after an akward head first fall into the boards. Stars have already lost three players to injury half way through the game.

Can’t say I was very productive at work today with the afternoon Prague game on.

 

Konecny schooled Keith and Crawford with a sick dangle and backhand though.  So much for a possible slow start for him after holding out.

Is Jack Edwards ever not a total piece of shit?

 

Can't believe the call he made, or that he stands by it even after the guy got stretchered off the ice.

Called Polak's injury "bad hockey karma."


But that's his bag.  He always creams himself celebrating injuries to opposing players.

Fleury is awesome. I can never decide if he is overrated or underrated or properly rated, but he is a first class human being.

As an Oilers fan. Yes. Next year too. After that they should be in pretty good shape.

It’s going to be one playoff in six years for him. If they aren’t on track in the seventh year he’ll want out guaranteed (if he doesn’t already).

Crazy some of the “little” moves Chiarelli was allowed to make on his way out. Moving Strome (a serviceable third line center that they’re now desperate for), trading for Manning (Expensive contract minor leaguer who happened to be the guy who injured McDavid his rookie year and McDavid called him out) and signing Koskinen to a ridiculous contract literally two days before he was fired.

And I’m a guy that supported the big blunders he made (Hall, Eberle, Lucic). Man what a mess. Fuck.... I think I’m done for the season.

They asked Fleury why he gave the stick away: 

 

“It was broken right? No? We’ll just say it was broken.”

 

lol...glad he's no longer a Pen so I don't have to hate him.

Yeah, agreed on all of that. But, it was horrific management that hired him in the first place. 

“Oh, the guy who traded Tyler Seguin for a handful of scrubs? Let’s give him the reigns and see what happens.”

To be fair, he built a cup winner in Boston
