    Need a Detroit win as Arizona seems to have gone in the tank. 

     

    I think we need to lose all of our remaining games in regulation....looking ahead at Arizona's schedule, they're unlikely to win more than one game from now until the end (the Anaheim game)...and even that game could easily be a loss.  The boys need to commit to the tank...maybe the goaltenders let a few past them on purpose...whatever.  Screw integrity...finishing bottom 5 needs to be the one and only goal at this point.

    if there was any doubt Drouin was in MSL's good graces, this will probably be a one too many "faux pas" for #27. He is more than gone:

    Suspended for being late to a team meeting

     

     


    The bum deserves to be pressboxed for the remainder of the season.  I'd like to think that'd be the case if not for the slew of injuries, but who knows with this guy, the way he's always coddled.

  3. I don't think it would be fair for the Flyers to hold his son's actions against him, and could possibly leave them open to a wrongful dismissal suit.  The only person who this should reflect badly on professionally is the athletic director at Mercyhurst College, should Briere not be kicked off of the team for his actions.

    I'm starting to think that RHP isn't a fluke.  I highly disagree with the people that have said that he is similar to Gally.  I always complain that the Habs are often way too close to the goal line/crease.  However, RHP doesn't do that. i.e. he gets it.  He seems to know to be slightly farther away from the crease and in the slot which important for: a) people can actually pass to him; and more importantly b) he can take a decent shot at the net with a good chance it goes in.  

     

    Although it's a small sample size up to this point, RHP looks very good.  His shooting % isn't sustainable, but he sure looks like he's got more goal scoring ability than Gallagher.  Let's hope he keeps it up.

  5. It's always so half-assed...the NHL never fails to display that it's just barely one of the 'major' sports whenever it puts on an event.  Poor production values, D-list celebrities judging, D-list music acts....every single time.  They'd be further ahead to streamline the production and stick to the actual skill events, and make them ultra-competitive.

  6. Between now and the next time we play the Sens, someone needs to sit Xhekaj down and explain to him that it's okay to take an instigator penalty during a tank year.  Tkachuk shouldn't be able to get that close and run his mouth, then be saved by the linesmen without eating any punches. 

  7. Caufield out for the season news was a real gut-punch....my one reason to watch games in their entirety on the regular in this rocky season is now gone.  This is great for the tank I guess, but I'm still pissed.  The 'hockey gods' can go F themselves!

    Sorry Gally, but no big loss.

    He is toast, as far as top six goes.

     

    Just too slow now and can anyone even remember the last time he took a goaltending interference penalty or 'accidently' fell on top of any goalie, as he once did in his youth?

     

    He's toast, period.  Injured all the time, ineffective when he is healthy enough to play.  If he were a horse, you'd take him out behind the barn and put him down.

    ...Two controversial overturned goals for the States will leave them pissed off to say the least.

     

     

    I felt like both were cut and dry calls that were made correctly; the first was a player in the crease making contact with the goaltender's head while in the act of shooting, and the second was a player pitchforking the goaltender's pad into the net after he had saved and covered the puck with said pad.

    If that exact game is played 10 times, usa wins 9 of them. A bad call by the refs on the first interference and millic was phenomenal.  Canada got very lucky tonight.

     

    I'm not buying the notion that it was a bad call.  A player should not be able to hit the goalie in the head with his ass while standing in the crease, then sweep the puck in, and have the goal count.
