    America's Team?

    Not quite, but there were a whole lot and we were really loud! It was impressive. I don't think the staples center will get as many folks out tomorrow given the cost and weeknight.

    ECQF : (8) Pittsburgh Penguins vs. (1) New York Rangers

    I actually dislike the Rags more than the Penguins these days, but the thought of rooting for the Pens causes me quite a moral conundrum.
  5. Injury forced me into beer league retirement about ten years ago, but I would still buy a Montreal 88 HMP if I could find it, just in case I ever laced em up again.

    3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

    The Wings are entitled to that spot on the ice as much as the opponent. It's called positioning and it's an important part of the game. The whining is just jockeying by coaches to get calls, but it is mischaracterizing the play and strategy which is entirely valid. from the rule book: As a side note - Lids was the king of using his stick to make himself "bigger" as is now forbidden in the rule. He would just hold his stick parallell to the ice in front of him.

    Red Wings Road Fans Appreciation

    We've had some good rivalries and playoff series with the Kings, Ducks, and Sharks in the past so Cali fans also know it is going to be a good game every time now. I gotta say, though, I moved to the east coast for the nine previous years, and coming back to LA I've noticed that Kings fans are insufferable. Even worse than in the Gretzky era.

    Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

    I don't know if I would go as far as all that, but there is some truth in there. Jimmy seems like one of those goalies who has exploitable weaknesses. They don't always show themselves, but when he does s*** the bed, it is usually with bunches of similar goals. Like high rebound control or blocker side in the shootout. It's like he has occasional lapses in his fundamentals but he isn't able to immediately plug the hole.

    2/24 GDT : Red Wings 0 at Kings 1

    I was at the game last night. The ice was so sloppy, the puck just was just bouncing everywhere and would not settle for the guys. I would not be surprised if the ice crew did that on purpose to slow it down. The Kings big defense also make our guys too timid to go to the front of the net, and they seemed hesitant to shoot with no traffic too. Still an entertaining game though.

    12/16 GDT : Blue Jackets 1 at Red Wings 0 (SO)

    On the bright side, his shootout save percentage went up.

    Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

    ouch. i think a Shooter Tutor could muster up 3 saves.

    +1 I miss the villains/foils/heels (you may call them trolls) that kept things interesting and entertaining. It seems much more serious and a bit neutered lately. The curse filter added to that sentiment too, but of course the state of the team hasn't helped either.
