This is the NHL, guys, where some people become winners, while others become losers.
My job is to determine who meets which standards every week. This is exactly what we are going to do today.
fasten your seatbelt. The following are the winners and losers of the NHL after the winter break.
Winner: Dave Tippet’s real estate agent
I am not sure if Dave Tippett owns a house in Edmonton or if he is just renting a house. I mean, considering that the job security of ordinary hockey players is better than that of Supreme Court judges, this is most likely the former. If this is the case, Tippet’s real estate agents will salivate, because when he is inevitably fired, they will sell commissions from the humble residence of the troubled bench owner.
Before I list any statistics or delve into the team’s lineup structure, I want to make it clear that the Edmonton Oilers are “going all out.” This is a team that is in the first year of competition. It has two of the best pure scorers in the game. Their lineup is so high that their income on LTIR is close to 8 million U.S. dollars.
I made a warning to emphasize this fact: Oilers are now rubbish. Direct garbage. Fool.
This team-which also has two of the best scorers in the NHL-currently ranks fourth in the league’s weakest division and has only won two of the past 13 games.
Why is this happening?
So, what are you looking forward to?
It is regrettable that Ken Holland chose to surround him with a list of generational talents. McDavid and Draisaital ranked first in the league with 53 points and 53 points respectively. The next oiler behind is Ryan Nugent Hopkins. His 26 points are exactly half theirs and only three goals in total.
So far, only two other Oilers have scored double-digit goals, Zach Hyman and Jesse Purjujarvi, who have played with Drasaital or McDavid most of the time.
And these are just statistics. I can discuss how the Oilers’ expected goal fell off the cliff when their energetic duo was off the ice, or how bad their goalkeeper was (I’ll let Tippet tell you that in his next press conference ). But this will only bore you.
This is the real problem.
In the year after entering the Stanley Cup bidding, the Dutch team’s vision for modern competitors featured a four-year contract for Cody Sisi, trading for a talented young RHD of Ethan Bell, and The assets were invested in the Black Hawks’ resurrected body for Dunken Keith and his bloated contract.
Every bit of struggle the Oilers have experienced this season is worth it. Tippet’s real estate agent was extremely happy.
Winner: Tony X
I love this guy. Very.
In just five years, Tony X went from real-time discovery of hockey on Twitter to one of his tweets being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame (personally, I think they should be in contact with “white people have been hiding” hockey from us’ but I did not get a vote) being chased by celebrities, such as he is a famous celebrity.
Yes, Tony now obviously has the same surname as Don Draper himself.
I will let this person tell the story better than me.
Follow your dreams, kids. In the end, you may become a professional fan of your favorite team, and Jon Hamm lays his fantastic Emmy-winning head gracefully on your shoulder.
Losers: Happy couple who got married at the Red Deer Hotel in Cambridge on December 29
Look, love is a beautiful thing, it appears in various forms.
Love can be a gesture, a song or a simple word. Love can also be a December wedding held at the Red Deer Hotel and Conference Center in Cambridge during the pandemic, and at the same time an international hockey championship, when the weather reached -29 degrees Celsius.
Who do we want to judge?
However, what I think this happy couple did not expect is that this event, which symbolizes the eternal commitment to love each other in disease and health and to support them for the rest of their lives, will also be a fatal blow to their deaths. The 2022 World Youth Championships.
It’s hard to blame them, really. These two incidents happened to collide at the worst time, and it was not the fault of the couple. Moreover, at the peak of the outbreak of highly contagious variants, the International Ice Federation did not consider placing its players and staff in a hotel that is not open to the public. This is certainly not their fault.
Alas, as the years go by, those important footnotes will inevitably disappear in history-like tears in the rain. For this, I can’t help feeling sorry for them.
Loser: A goalkeeper who thinks he can play
Steve Dangle put it best: if you are a goalkeeper, go for goal.
Alas, just like what I do every time he tells me not to participate in Mad Online™, no one is listening to Steve right now. In December, almost every network administrator in the NHL was made to be the third on their team. Play like a defender, just to be humble immediately.
In fact, the past week brought two most shocking examples.
Chart A is provided by Mackenzie Blackwood. He forgot that he was in a hockey game because the long dumping ball reached his crease, causing him to lazily like a fly hovering around lemonade in the hot summer The puck was slapped on the club of Lars Eller in Washington, who handed the ball to Connor Sheary to get a quasi-empty net.
However, it is not like Brian Elliott (Brian Elliott) decided to issue a cross-ice breakthrough pass to anyone from his own hashtag, which immediately gave Barclay Goodrow After breaking through, he inevitably profited from it.
I know it’s fun to try new things. But for Pete, guys. Stay in your network.
