Really surprised at this one. He's going to be a backup on the Isles instead of a backup for the B's. Also surprised that the B's let him go. Guess they didn't want to pay him. He made 600K last year and the Isles signed him for 1.3.
So now they have 3 backup goaltenders with 1 game of NHL experience between them. Yes you read that correctly, 1 game between all of them !!
Guessing that Niklas with be the backup.
Come the hell on B's, it's worth an extra 600K to of kept Johnson
It's been an icon with the driver being popular with everyone. But it's time will probably be numbered now because of better and faster tech.
From what I have seen here and other websites, it looks like a good deal of people are not aware of the exact realignment and how the teams are seeded for the playoffs this year. Here is a break down of all the info.
Things have been way skewed with favs hitting at a huge rate this year. This past week a shift to the normal is starting to occur. So far this year dogs have only hit at a 39.6% clip, which is up from 36.28% from 60 days ago.
This past week the dogs have hit a 46.15% rate.
For the new bettors and casual bettors in the forum this year, this it what the NHL always is. A couple of dogs hitting almost every night. Usually the biggest dog is a great play blind every night.
This is why you saw me play my usual take anything above +130 strategy at the start of the year. This year it got just crushed like it never has before. Maybe it's the short season, the lack of a decent training camp made the lesser teams at more of a disadvantage ?? Not completely sure, but I am sure of parity like we usually have for the rest of this year.
Now with that said, we are coming up on teams that are just flat out of it and are just going through the motions. So pay close attention to that.
The Avs and Calgary are hitting that spot. Florida is in that boat also, even though they took out the Devils last night, plus the Avs won. But too little too late.
It's much more than the B2B angle, in fact that is the least thing I am looking at. The Wings are coming off two huge wins at ANA the past two nights. The lowly Yotes will be very tough to get up for. The Yotes are on a 5 game losing streak but look at who they have played. LA twice, the Nucks, the Blues and a very hot Jackets team.
Also the Wings will play a road against the Sharks in a few days, so this is the prefect look ahead game for them.
Paper says the Wings should win by a couple of goals. But you gotta look deeper than that at times.
Or I am off my rocker and you will all hit this game hard and it will spit out money like an ATM.
