The Penguins still seem incomplete. It’s impossible to get a read on a team five games into the season, and you can’t put too much stock into one game, but for all of the nice moves the Penguins made over the summer they’re still in a position where Rob Scuderi and Craig Adams are taking semi-regular shifts for them and Evgeni Malkin is skating on a line with Pascal Dupuis and Brandon Sutter . 2. Even when the Oilers are good, they’re still kind of bad. Let’s say this up front: The Oilers probably played a little better over their first four games than the results would indicate. They were also probably outplayed by the Capitals on Wednesday during their 3-2 win. But a win is a win and the Oilers are in no position to be apologizing for how they do it, but I can’t think of anything more fitting for this team than their game-winning goal on Wednesday which ended up being a beautiful play that was preceded by a comedy of errors . 3. Frederick Andersen is off to a great start. John Gibson gets a lot of the headlines in Anaheim for being the goalie of the future and one of the better up-and-coming netminders in the league, but they have another pretty good one in Andersen. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/10/23/7044427/nhl-scores-penguins-flyers-corey-perry-hat-trick

Kings support Voynov’s suspension after arrest – heraldstandard.com: Headlines Ap

Kings GM: NHL should educate after Voynov

(Note: the shellacked rule probably wont apply to teams who are at risk of nightly shellackings like, you know, the Sabres.) The Philadelphia Flyers dropped what must have been a demoralizing 4-0 defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday only to beat the Penguins in Pittsburgh 5-3 last night. On paper, it seemed like Pittsburgh would be an easy choice to win big, yet now the Penguins find themselves a mere game above .500 this season. History can repeat itself, but dont get stuck assuming it will, either: I think it can be dangerous to put too much weight in past experiences, particularly in an age of turnover for rosters and front offices alike. Still, the Penguins and Flyers factor into this consideration in an interesting way, as well; Philly is now 10-1-1 against Pittsburgh at the spiffy Consol Energy Center. I wouldnt wager my life savings (seriously, stop laughing at mentions of my savings, thats not very nice) the next time the Pens host the Flyers (especially since its happening on April Fools Day 2015) but I might not bet against the Flyers, either. Contract year motivation: Anyone whos been following the Dose knows that in a contract year is one of my favorite draft-day and waiver wire tie-breakers. Not every player maximizes his earning potential when theres a ton of money on the line, but enough guys have conveniently (or luckily) bumped up their production in such a way that its difficult to deny the pull of such factors altogether. That said, with GMs becoming more and more comfortable with the limitations placed on them by the salary cap as the years go on, fewer and fewer true difference-makers get all that deep into their contract years. From T.J. Brodie to Bobby Ryan, early extensions are becoming more and more common. Contract malaise: Some guys are so talented and/or driven that they dont slow down one mile-per-hour even with their long-term future secured. Id wager that others might not be immune to that crossing the finish line feeling, even if it could very well be subtle or even subconscious. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/dose-human-element-074800170–nhl.html

Especially in Edmonton, where they probably dont have the disposable income they do in Toronto, where they apparently go through hockey sweaters like most of us go through Kleenex. What We Learned Anaheim Ducks : Bruce Boudreau on Sami Vatanen , who scored two power-play goals on Sunday: Last year, he never hit the net when he shot the puck. Its been five games in [this season], and hes hit the net twice. Thats a real big improvement. Arizona Coyotes: Its anticipation that makes Keith Yandle such an effective player . No word if that includes anticipation for an eventual trade to the East. Boston Bruins : The line of Loui Eriksson , Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly is apparently the Swede Emotion line, and were always going to applaud an Aerosmith reference over the alterantive Boston cliche. Which is the Swede Kelly-Line (Ba Ba Ba good times never seemed so good). Buffalo Sabres : If they had their druthers, Sabres fans would send Drew Stafford packing right now , apparently unable to wait until the trade deadline like the rest of us. Calgary Flames : Hey, just because Lamberts off WWL this week doesnt mean were not running Johnny Gaudreaus first goal this season: Carolina Hurricanes : The Canes could get Andrej Sekera , John-Michael Liles and Jeff Skinner , back into their lineup vs. the Jets on Tuesday. Eric Staal wont be back until later in the their road trip, perhaps vs, Vancouver. Winnipeg Jets : Looking disinterested at the lowest moments of the game does not a winning team make. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/what-we-learned–an-etiquette-guide-to-throwing-your-nhl-jersey-in-protest-143803121.html
