Leafs were offered a few major-league centres

The Leafs were offered a few major-league centres in their dealings before settling on Anaheim’s Peter Holland. The reason they didn’t trade for a veteran third- or fourth-line guy was because they felt there was no upside in doing so. With Holland, a first-round pick in both the OHL and NHL drafts, there is a belief he could become something. He has size and a good shot. Now it’s up to him …

Holland was coached in minor hockey by his father, whose nickname is Dutchy … Testing my memory here, but I don’t remember another NHL team losing its top three centres at the same time at any time. Do you?…. And no, the fact Tyler Bozak and David Bolland are hurt and Kadri is suspended is not why the Leafs should have held on to Mikhail Grabovski. One aspect has nothing to do with the other. Why can’t people get over this? .

    Great game tonight between the high flying Sharks and the Stanley cup champs. Chicago is clearly serious about repeating. With the short season last year, they’re still fresh.

      Chicago also had something to prove after being smoked by Nashville.

      Also, I may be behind on the times, but I figured out how to stream every nhl game HD for free. If any of the rest of you are too poor for cable like me and want to know how to do it, let me know.

    Always looking for a different source as lots are up and down or freeze too much, lol. Please share

    It requires a bit of work, but it literally has every game HD and my load times have been awesome:

    Download this: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ (It’s safe, google it if you want to). If you’re on windows 8, or just a 64 bt windows in general, make sure your folder you save it under is Program Files, not Program files (x86) or w/e.

    then go to this link (IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY DOWNLOAD A FILE WHEN YOU CLICK IT, THAT’S OK): breadwinka.com/hockey.luac

    Then go to your program files – > VideoLAN – > VLC – > lua folder -> sd folder… And now paste that hockey.luac file in here.

    If you’re on mac, download vlc and the hockey.luac file and go to your applications folder, ctrl click vlc, select show package contents, click contents -> Mac OS -> click share -> click lau -> click sd, and then paste the hockey.luac there.

    Now just open VLC, open playlists and there should be a hockey playlist. Games won’t show until ~30 minutes before game time, but when they do just pick the resolution you want and voila.

    Sounds sketchy I realize haha.

      You also can usually choose from either team’s broadcast announcers which is pretty cool. And if it’s going slowly you can just lower the reso which is a nice addition too.
