Bill Daly....I think I hate that smug bastard more than Bettman. Amazing they just blatantly lie about s*** whenever they feel the need to. Probably has something to do with us being the best fans in the world.
Yeah I know, but I missed the game so I'm "excited" to see him tonight. Btw, looks like he had a good game against Rangers. Scored and recorded 4 hits too.
Ah, ok. His goal was pretty flukey (refs missed it and played continued for about 90 seconds), but they don't ask how, just how many. I couldn't stop laughing though because I know it probably gave Babs a stiffy and now he'll play the last 70~ games.
And Nyquist didn't have a point in the preseason. Who cares? It's the preseason. It's not an indicator of anything.
That doesn't make sense. Preseason or not, a SO is a SO. It's an indicator that on a 1-on-1 situation Nestrasil has the capability to score on Rask. It also probably didn't hurt he actually scored a legit goal that same game too.
I'm not going to read the novels above written by some, but how is everyone so quick to forget Nessy scored in the S/O on preseason game AGAINST F****** RASK? Don't you think that might have had something to do with Babs choosing him in the S/O against the same goalie?
The first line probably won't last long. Babcock has pulled Abdelkader from that duty before, which makes it even more confusing that he keeps putting him up there. I guess because Franzen won't use the body he figures that line would be too small with Nyquist up there. That's the only reason I can think of.
I'm really hoping Franzen has a different kind of year. He said he doesn't want to be labeled as lazy, and while we all known his tendencies, when that guy decides to take over a game...he certainly does. Here's to hoping he has that attitude all year. I for one am excited what may be unleashed.
