just to be clear, thru December last season they were no more than 9 points out of 1st overall. Even though there were about 10 teams bunched together, it doesn't mean they weren't at or near the top. When you are 9 points or less from #1, you are at or near the top.

 

I get it, but they are a much, much, much better looking team this year than any of the last few years. Not saying there won't be some slumps along the way, but comparing last years team to this years team is an apples and oranges scenario if there ever was one.

I agree with your sentiment, but you can't say the shoot out doesnt matter. Imagine if we were just .500 in shoot outs.

 

I should say a part of the game that shouldn't matter because it's just a stupid part of the game today. Sure, I'd like to win, and I wish we were better, but the whole team sucks at it, and if it's the worst of our problems this year, which I believe it to be, we're in pretty good shape. Especially come playoff time when overtime is decided by playing a hockey game again.

 

On a random note, any chance your user name is a Wire reference? If so, bravo.

Worst part about this is that the stupid Howard shootout thread is bound to take on new life. I'm surprised it's survived. I get that it sucks that he's not a great shootout goalie, but we can't score consistently in the shootout either, and it's the stupidest thing to be pissing and moaning about, because it's the damn shootout! Howard is great in the parts of the game that really matter and we've got to have a thread about thef****** shootout. Ridiculous.

So apparently the power of positive thinking doesn't always work. So sick of the stupid shootout. Just a stupid, obnoxious way to "lose."

I think Howard pulls it off tonight.
