@THNKenCampbell: There's no way you can convince me bottom feeders are tanking. They're just really bad hockey teams. My blog. http://t.co/8ctHmWLQmr

 

He doesn't seem to understand the concept of tanking at all lol. Of course players and coaches aren't tanking, they're fighting for jobs. Tanking comes from management.

 

But sure Ken - that's just "creative roster management" - not a tank job lol

To tank or not to tank. That is the question.

I bought some Maple Lea Tea.  It cost a fortune and didn't come with a Cup.

Even when spotting Buffalo the lead the leafs can't tank properly.

"When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

To think we lost Buffalo in a shootout as well and were are 2-2-1 vs Toronto with one win coming in OT.

This season is like Survivor: NHL Draft.  When you win too much, you get voted off the tank.

"As for preparing the Wings to play the Blue Jackets, this was Babcock's reply: "We come in here, we try to make everyone look like the '68 Montreal Canadiens," he said of the Habs team that won the 15th Stanley Cup in club history. "Doesn't matter what their record is. That's what we try to do. But they don't believe us.

 

"The bottom line is we know we've got to get better. We aren't firing on all cylinders right now, like we were two weeks ago, so it's time to get our game back, and that's what we're going to try to do today."

 

 

I think he means, "think of every opponent as the '68 Canadiens".  Not "make them look like the '68 Canadiens", which admittedly, we've been doing the last couple of games.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
