just keep saying that might be it to every scenario, and when we find out which one it is, you can say, yep I knew that was it  :lol:

 

I would've gotten away with it if you hadn't POINTED IT OUT TO EVERYONE.

Game. Over.

 

Boo. Yeah.


I think we really miss the Western Conference.

Lashoff deserves a goal.

Oh man, DBZ was so great. And by great I mean terrible. And by terrible I mean great. (See: my board name.)

I love Z's sticking-his-tongue-out goal-celebration face.

Keating with an Office Space reference. Ozzie has really improved, much less robotic.


I don’t want to be that guy, but….I really hope that they don’t need a 5-3 to score their second goal of the game. Know wha I’m sAYen’ dawg!!!! 

 

Well, it doesn't necessarily have to be that we only score one goal. Like, we could lose 9-8. nawmean??

It's so cute when Quincey shoots from the point.

I keep getting glimpses of Sheahan's jersey and think it says Shanahan. Then I get really excited, then I remember it's not 1998.

Then I cry.

 

You too?




#2480646 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Dabura on 03 February 2014 - 04:22 PM

I still think Ott is worth a shot. With no one really knowing what's up with Datsyuk, and the jury being out on Weiss, and Helm's health a constant concern, and Andersson being very vanilla, and Sheahan being a call-up kid, and Glendening being a call-up kid, and Z's back a major issue, and Franzen being a vegetable, it might be worth investing in some more center depth. Which reminds me: as long as Randy Carlyle is the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Nazem Kadri is on the block.

(Salo and Timonen are both Finnish. So maybe they'd like the idea of playing on the same team, maybe even the same pairing. And we could bring up Pulkkinen and make all our Swedes feel uncomfortable.)

This interview was back in November before we saw most of the young players.  Disregard.

 

Oh, I know, but I think my point still stands. All he ever talks about is where the focus need to be, and he's made it clear that it's scouting, drafting, player development, our homegrown youth. Our kids. Granted, this one quote in question has been taken out of context somewhat. But, even so, it's a weird thing for him to say. He's made a conscious effort to "go young" with our D corps. Nyquist was a stud in the playoffs, and, either way (whether he and Tatar are destined to be studs or duds), he's made it incredibly clear that he doesn't want to fight for UFAs or swing any big trades - so, as our aging core inevitably declines, what's the compensation mechanism that will keep us competitive? Wouldn't it kind of have to be kids? Isn't that kind of what every GM in the league has figured out? Doesn't he say as much in every interview he gives? And didn't Yzerman, Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Kronwall et al. start their NHL careers as kids?

 

*shrug*

Guys, this isn't on the refs. We spotted the Caps three goals in the first by playing the absolute worst "hockey" we have ever played. As always, we do it to ourselves.

It needs to be said: we are a disaster. Yeah, five goals, great. But six goals against.

 

Remember when a game against the Panthers didn't feel like Game 7 of the SCF?

What's reassuring is that their "downs" haven't really been that bad.  Normal for players of any caliber.  And they seem to bounce back from droughts, unlike, say, Brunner.  They're the real deal.  Let's just hope they're not playoff chokers now, haha.

 

Well, we already know Nyquist can be clutch in the playoffs. Tatar, I feel like he was born to play on The Big Stage.
