08:27 AM ET 11.02 | In KHL action, Dynamo Moscow was without Alex Ovechkin but the team still beat Donbass Donetsk 4-2 to stay top in the West. NHL draft No. 1 pick Nail Yakupov scored two goals as his lockout team Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk completed a 4-2 comeback win over Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod. The Edmonton Oilers forward first made it 1-1 on 34 minutes after Torpedo's lockout signing Alexander Semin had opened the score 10 minutes earlier and Yakupov popped up to seal the game with a late empty-net goal. He now has 10 goals and four points from 13 games in the KHL. Neftekhimik is sixth in the East, while Torpedo retained fifth position in the Western Conference.

In Soviet Russia Lupul is playing for Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg, a bottom feeding team. He will feel comfortably at home.

While polarizing and inconsistent the Eagles haven't shown enough suckage to qualify.

The selection committee pointed out that they made the playoffs in '04, '06, '08, '09, and '10.

This obviously is not up to To***to standards.

I honestly feel bad for them. Well not the Eagles fans.....just the Flyers fans.

Doubtful, if they wish to continue to use the name Chiefs. I would likely be viewed as politically incorrect....Whereby our sports teams can only be grammatically incorrect.

Trust me, the fans are just as fed up with the Eagles and their mediocre performances.
