Good read

Also, being tired is a lame excuse. Thankfully, Howard agrees:
 

"They won in every statistic tonight," Howard said. "Every battle. I'm not going to make that excuse that we were tired or anything like that because I kind of think it's pathetic. We need a better effort out of all of us."

Bottom line, we were terrible. I can only hope it serves as a wake-up call. We can't just coast through the season.

To win in Boston tonight the PP's gonna have to execute.

 

This.

 

We got lucky last night. And even the Sabres game, if Vanek hadn't hit iron on that one shot...

 

Point being, gotta bring our A game tonight, and for the full sixty. And that whole our-power-play-is-our-enforcer business better start, y'know, being true, and stuff.

 

The Bruins are a very good team that very nearly took the 'hawks to seven in the SCF. I like that I've not seen or heard a single "We basically won the Cup, sort of" from anyone in Bruins Land; their fans (and players, I'd say) are generally classier than they get credit for. (No, I absolutely will not miss tangling with the 'hawks and their legion of braindead bandwagon fans 80 times a season.)

 

A win tonight would be huge for us, a nice early statement.

I wish we'd picked up Semin.

#2441570 ESPN Poll of Anonymous Players

Posted by Dabura on 04 October 2013 - 01:32 PM

So how do they figure that we'll both benefit most and be hurt most by moving East?  Benefit is obvious with the time zone and less travel.  Do they figure that we'll be out-matched by the tougher Eastern teams?
 
As everyone knows, I firmly believe the WC > EC. But, if you look at our division...man, it looks to be very, very competitive, and only more so as time goes on (i.e. some of these teams are only going to get better). As competitive as the previous Central had become, I'd say it was probably less scary than our current Atlantic, all things considered.
 
So maybe that's what they were thinking?

I feel like Elias Lindholm is a future Red Wing. There's something...inevitable about it. IMHO.




#2441284 Tampa names St. Louis Captain

I think it's ultimately the coach's call.




#2441282 Patrick Roy goes crazy on Bruce Boudreau

Posted by Dabura on 03 October 2013 - 08:21 AM

Also, the really funny thing here is that everyone and his mom had been making jokes about how Roy's going to go after someone (as in the turtle brawl) in his very first game. I don't think many actually thought it'd happen, though.

 

"AAARRGGHH!!! CURSE THIS GLASSY, PLASTIC-LIKE MATERIAL WHICH CONTAINS ME!!!! *POUND-POUND*"




#2441220 Oilers Name Six Alternate Captains

Posted by Dabura on 02 October 2013 - 10:32 PM

It's almost embarrassing if you're not named an alternate...

 

I was tempted to post almost the same exact thing, word for word, earlier today.




#2441200 10/2 GDT : Sabres 1 at Red Wings 2

Milbury just called Datsyuk amazing, like, six times in the span of two minutes.


Offense looked great the first half, definitely sloppy and slow the 2nd half though. Hard to tell which is the real deal

 

I think a lot of that had to do with the penalties (at least three of which were terrible calls). We were gassed.

I miss Nyquist.
