Questionable is great news, since he was expected to miss 1-2 weeks, and a lot of people were thinking maybe even longer.

Good to see Ras back. Hopefully he can get going here. I'd love to see what he could do in a top six role, but that can't happen with elite top line winger Justin Abdelkader...

Yup, based on comments Blashill made yesterday, it seems like Larkin's just about ready but they want to be 100% sure he's 100% good to go.

Definitely good to see Rasmussen back. Sucks that Bert's still out tho.

The more, the merrier! Welcome aboard! :pizza::drunk:

Thanks! Been lurking for a really long time and decided to join in on the fun. Don't expect too much of me though, I'm lazy and don't post much. Mainly use different forums as a source for news.

All right boys. Let's go on a run here!!  I will very very disappointed if you don't win your way out of a top 10 pick. Because a top 10 pick is the last thing this team needs. HYPE

Today is the 102nd anniversary of Boots McDingle's one and only hockey game.

The year was 19 dickety 17. NHL players had gone off to fight for the French and the league had a shortage. Arena security wasn't as tight back then, and a homeless man wandered away from his burning trash barrel looking for a place to puke. He ended up in the old MSG, specifically in the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs water closet. An hour before puck drop (they called em puckleberrys in those days), the Leafs coach learned the news that one of his players had contracted cholera during the long and dangerous trek from Toronto to New York. If he didn't replace that player, they'd have to forefit. So ole Boots stumbled out of the bathroom, drunk off his own puke, and was signed right there on the spot (drunkeness was a sign of athleticism in those days). Wouldn't you know it, on his first shift he made NHL history by becoming the first player to crap his pants on the ice. He was assessed a 2 minute minor for getting his poo on the ice (poop was runnier in those days), but on his way to the box he asked the referee for spare change, when the ref declined ole Boots bit the referee, resulting in a 10 minute misconduct. Boots was so drunk he confused the penalty box for an outhouse which resulted in him being tossed from the game. He left the arena and went back to his burning barrel after collecting his one games worth pay of the NHL minimum $.55. It would be 82 years before another NHL player would enter a game at MSG intoxicated and immediately leave after the game to get drunk while standing next to a burning trash barrel (Theo Fleury). And that's the story of ole Boots McDingle, the worst player to ever play in the NHL.
