well, I think I found a team in the East that I like now! at Talbot The Turtle (and from the way you got your ass kicked later, you should just keep turtling)
Fa-Q Mario! If your team was the one kicking ass and winning the hockey game, you wouldn't had said a single word! It's just too bad your whiney ***** Crosby wasn't out there to get his head ripped off!

Is that relevant?
I don't have to be a forward to critique a forwards play. Don't deflect simply to justify Howard's positioning on that goal.
IMHO, people who have played the game seem to have more relevant analysis when it comes to hockey. Thats just my observation though.
Do goalies let in weak goals or make mistakes on positioning? Yup. Just like defenses blow coverages and forwards turn pucks over. IMHO, if you are going to chew Howard out for crap positioning, then chew the D out for not covering the man in the slot. A lot of blame to go around on that goal, and the idiots blaming one party and only one party for that goal, is dumb.
I dunno, jmac has been pretty solid. Im more confident w/ him in net right now than howard.
Oh come on. It's not like Howard has been letting in really soft goals. He hasn't been perfect, but he also hasn't been any worse than our defense and overall team play. when the skaters pick up their play, Howard will be fine.
If he rushes back, we're even more screwed than we are without him. If he's not at 100%, it won't take much for something to go wrong (and let's face it, that's the story of our season thus far) and put us even further behind the 8-ball.
I'd rather suffer through games right now to be assured that when he does take the ice, he's totally and completely healed.

Actually, Nabby not reporting is like getting offered a job with a law firm, accepting the offer, and then being told to report to McDonalds Monday morning to work on the fry station, because that's your new job.
I don't know anyone who would take that deal, yet you're acting like it's illogical for him *not* to show up and work the fry station.
I like the GP concept, but for something supposedly several months in development with allegedly professional comic writers involved, it's been disappointing. The whole thing seems like some college art student spent the whole semester partying, and had to cram the whole project into one weekend.
Well, now that we're to the All-Star break, what's the verdict on Salei from LGW?
