I'm afraid this thread is just going to devolve into the "Jeff tries to keep his expectations in check" thread these next three weeks...

Ok, now you've become delusional.  Dubnyk is playing very, very well.  But the wheels may fall off sooner than you'd like.  It may not be until next year, but the Vezina and Hart trophies are year long trophies, not last third of the season stuff.  Even still, I'd say Price is ahead in both. 

I'm now watching us battle LA/Calgary for the last playoff spot.  You guys are in, IMO.  But I don't think anyone wants to play us if we make it.

I'm interested.

In a 3peat!

I shall endeavor to prevent that.

I think that last wildcard comes down to us and the Flames, who oddly enough we host at home for the final game of the season for both teams.  Could be a very exciting game. 

Completely agree you guys are the ones chasing the Hawks now.  Too many injuries for us again - our #1C and our team catalyst in big Buff.  + crappy goaltending =  :'(

Not bad, but you guys are really just one goalie injury away from relying on .906 goaltending against The Blackhawks, Blues, or Preds. :P



I'm kinda hoping for an injury to a goalie right now  :-X  That would allow us to call up Hellebuyck from the AHL and he might be our only hope, to turn a phrase.  Blech, our goaltending sucks goat balls.

Hellebuyck is the answer.  At least that would be my expectation but you are completely correct about our goaltending situation.  Our best solution to an injury to Hutch is an AHL rookie.  Ah...yeah.   :-\

And yes, I'm hoping for a Hawks tumble.  We'll see better in about two weeks where we stand as everyone will have played out their games in hand by that point.   As it is, that makes me nervous.

So, Leopold and Stewart for us.  Not a bad haul I guess for not giving up much.

Leopold is a nice 6/7 defenseman that will allow us to send one of Folin/Dumba back to Iowa for bigger minutes and more seasoning...  a 3rd pair Leopold/Prosser isn't great, but at least we have a bit of injury protection since our D-corp has been hurt (or mump'ed) quite a bit this year.

Stewart... not sure.  Could be great if he's going to play hard and get gritty, and dig in... but he hasn't really done that since he left Colorado.  :-\  Maybe he'll just hang out in the press box for a few games until we figure out how to best use him...

Have I thanked you guys for taking Dumba ahead of Trouba?  Because I feel like I should.   :-*

We did all our damage before today, but quite a haul.

Gave up:
Kane
Bogosian
Kasdorf
2016 3rd
2015 conditional 6th
Klingberg (not that one)

Got:
Myers
Stafford
Armia
Lemieux
Buffalo's late 2015 1st round pick (either from NYI or St. Louis)
Tlusty
Stempniak

Yeah, I'm ok with Chevy's work over the past couple of weeks  ;D

Tres bummer.   :'(

Looking forward to Wild Vs. Nashville tomorrow.  Will be a much better test of Dubnyk and the Wild than the fodder we've been chewing up in our post-All Star run here.

[McConaughey]Alright, alright, alright.[/McConaughey] 8)

Man, my squad right now... 

So, so scared of the eventual day when Dubnyk remembers he's not a 1.68 GAA, .934 SV% Goalie.  :-\

Meh, take it for what it's worth.  He may not remember that until September and if that's the case, it could be awfully sweet.  Hot goalies steal cups all the time, this might be it for the Wild.

Wait, is Rose getting a scope or does he have a meniscus tear?

I read meniscus tear yesterday and that his season was over.

Both a scope and a meniscus repair.  I don't think anyone's done a meniscus surgery/repair by anything other than arthroscopic surgery in probably 20+ years.  That's how long ago I had my first one and I've had two more since. 

I'm kind of surprised they're talking season over for a meniscus but I guess it depends on the severity and location of the tear.  It must be worse than peripheral.

Whatever happened with Northstar? Did he ever get released?

Nope.  I don't actually know what happened.  "Cancelled" I think, but definitely not released.

Yup, but just timed it well to find it on Amazon.  She never showed up locally. 

We only ever saw wave 1 on the pegs, nothing after that, except in the last two weeks at one Walmart they had the Guardians of the Galaxy wave.  I don't recall if She-hulk was on that wave or not, she wasn't at the store.  That wave, along with Wonderman I was able to score off HTS right around Christmas time. 

So I'm caught up to the point of only missing Bishop now.  Have checked multiple stores where I found the rest of the wave and none of them have put anything out. 


Gave in.  Since I was ordering the LOTR EE BluRays from Amazon, I snagged the red She-Hulk figure at the same time for $10.99.  Couldn't get the timing down to find it on HTS. 

I think the only thing I'm missing that's out and non-exclusive is the Wonderman figure.

Thanks Justin.

Just a single case.  This retailer is kind of weird in that they put stuff out and if it sells, great.  But the restock rate is shockingly slow, as in months.  So I'm trying to stumble onto other stores in the same chain in hopes of finding Bishop. 

I didn't think there was anything new about Hawkeye at all.  I haven't looked real closely but I can't even find the differences between Dark Hawkeye and just Hawkeye. ;)

Interesting find last night. 

Wandered into our largest grocery store called "Superstore".  It's part of a nationwide chain run by Loblaws and the chain stores go under a variety of names, depending on where you are in Canada.  It's kind of like a poor man's Costco, carrying everything under the sun minus the auto stuff, but in summer you can buy a lawnmower there if you like.  They always have a toy section too and I've bought some SW stuff there over the years.  It's always more expensive for toys though too. 

So I took my traditional walk through there and they had the old, crappy Marvel toys they've had for months.  But in the diecast cars section  ???  I stumbled across the latest wave of Marvel Infinite figures and was able to pick up Black Cat, Beast (blue) and both versions of Sandman.  I left behind the grey Beast, the black and neon green Spidey figure and the Hawkeye figure.  From what I could tell everything is 2x per case except Black Cat and Hawkeye. 

The bummer is the price.  These were a whopping $14.99  :o  so after tax they were a silly $16.94 per.  Ouch.  I'd been waiting to get them off HTS but they (all but spidey) disappeared last night from the site.  It's about all I collect these days so I sucked it up and bought them.  My understanding is that U.S. retail is going to be $12.99 on these so I guess it's not that far out of line with the tumbling Canadian dollar.

by edit: I looked around online and it's showing the wave to contain Bishop and Daredevil as well.  No sign of those guys at all on the pegs.  Could be I missed them.  That would suck, because Bishop would have brought me right up to date on what's been released.
