Here's how to deal with a rebuild:

- Pay a lot of attention to the moves they're making, it's going to be the most exciting part.
- Read respected people (beat writers or bloggers) on how the actual team is performing on the ice, at least with young players or players who will be part of the next good team.
- Only watch games occasionally, when you've got nothing else to do. Don't try to force watching more than what comes easy, you don't want to do that to yourself. Only go in person if someone offers you an extra ticket or if you can get a group of seats on the cheap for you and some friends. If it's a real rebuild, they should be readily available soon.

Your cautious optimism is well placed. Things will get better. But it'll take some time so be prepared.

Looks like Pirri is getting dealt today, LN7.

They said that yesterday.

Only reason I want to keep him is his near guaranteed shootout shot.

This deadline has been a dud.

McKenzie made it sound like they were just collecting offers and going to pick the best one. I guess we'll see.

I mean I don't doubt he'll be traded, but rumors have been going since yesterday from both Fialkov and Richards, our two beat writers l for the sentinel and herald. He was supposed to be traded yesterday, so I wouldn't be surprised if Tallon is trying to drive the price up and could pull out.

Lots of waiver claims!

Re: Pirri

There was no room for him, now that we have Hudler. However, if there's room for guys like Quinton Howden, there's room for Pirri's shootout shot, which is the reason why we've won so many shootouts. Not worth a 6th round pick.

The Flyers continue to be the all-time worst shootout team and it could end up being what keeps them out of the playoffs. Fun!

That used to be us. I would venture to say the Florida Panthers might have the worst shootout record if we didn't count the past two years. Now, we have so much shootout talent we can't handle it. We got rid of Brad Boyes and Brandon Pirri, two of the NHL best shootout shooters, because Bjugstad/Barkov 1-2 combo is freaking unstoppable. There's an array of great #3 options with Smith/Trocheck/Huberdeau that are also all still ++ shooters.

It's weird being successful in hockey. I'm still not comfortable with it yet.

Buffalo has nominated Ryan O'Reilly for the Masterson trophy, I guess for perseverance in the face of driving drunk into a Tim Horton's.

Kind of hard to say, if you don't cover the team. I'm sure he did deserve it/isn't a total piece of shit. People make mistakes.

Moot nomination. Nobody preserves the game like a 44-year-old, team point leading, record breaking 60+ point all star by the name of Jaromir Jagr.

Man, the Blackhawks are really doing everything in their power to be the league's villains. Extremely easy team to root against at this point.

I would like to point out that zero Canadian teams will make the playoffs. A traditionally "southern" Washington Capitals team is about to win the president's trophy. The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Panthers are neck and neck in a first place battle, and the Detroit Red Wings are poised to miss the playoffs for the first time since the 1990s. Granted, they might make it if the powerhouse Boston Bruins continue in free fall.

What fun the NHL has been this year.
