You're supposed to break a bottle on the new roof anyway to christen it.
Just buy two.
Ha.
:)


Lol, doing that to the Macallan would be alcohol abuse. ;). I may splurge for a bottle of the 18 year sherry oak instead of the 15 year fine oak I've been enjoying for the last 14 months or so.

More time for Smith, I know everyone is in love with Dekeyser and rightfully so, but there is something about this guy that tells me he's going to be a stud. His puck-moving was great last night and did a great job of keeping the crease clean.


Agreed. Smith is showing why everyone was so high on him as a prospect. They are both foing to be rock solid, imho.

Well then... The groins are back at it again.


Could be, though I don't recall hearing about a 48 hour goalie IR before. Could they be making sure Jimmy gets the rest just in case Monster gets hurt as he's been prone to do over his career? It also shows some respect to Mrazek, imho, and lets him know he's not left to rot in GR.

I was out with the wife last night, watching the dvr of the game now, and for all the grief I've given KFQ (deservedly so), the guy has veen improving from his fairly solid second half of last season and I thought he looked damn god based on what I've seen so far.

Franzen had a hell of a game before he got hurt, and I had to laugh at the Franzen hate before he got his goals. I'll be one of the first to call him out when Mule switches to ass mode, but give the guy credit. I agree he's playing the best he has in ages (Oh wait, I don't have the option to attend live so I need to start a charity or something).

Howard has also been playing well, shootout notwithstanding, but if you can't score it isn't just on the goalie. Here's hopng Monster stands tall today.

Seems to me like Rob Ford is sharing his stash with the Toronto media.

Nice to see no Bad Pass Goals so far by Howard  :lol:


How is his "Average Saves Under Pressure In The Last Minute Percentage?"

:D

Brendan needs to Kronwall his kid brother.

You can't leave a guy that wide open in the slot.

Some good pressure by the Tatar line that shift.

The Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco line should stay together. If that's our third line drawing weaker d-men, look out.

What are the odds we could give the Quincey bashing a rest...ya know...since he's not even in the lineup tonight.


Sorry, I didn't mean to start it with my Smith looking better without him comment. FWIW, I also felt Q was better without Smith, they didn't mesh well, IMHO, to the detriment of both.

Is Smith not paired with Quincey? I think that he was much better when not paired with Kylef****** Q (think of the Dennis Leary NyQuil routine) last season. Just a bad player combo with toxic chemistry imho.

Smith has been strong from what I've seen in the 2nd.

I hate how a lot of people write off Jensen. If Sproul, Ouellet, Marchenko, and Backman, wern't so good, everyone would be excited about him. He's played well everywhere he's been.

This is the first good look I've had at him. Didn't he get hurt at camp in a fight with Tyler Bertuzzi last year? I think that's why he is somewhat under the radar.

I definitely am liking what I see from him.
