Holy crap, there were a lot of Leafs fans there last night. I usually like it when Leafs fans show up - they get the Joe rockin', but there were some trolls in my section. I was a little overly joyful they had to make the trek home disappointed.
Leafs' defense played extremely well last night. I'm not surprised we struggled to score. I wasn't thrilled when they pulled the trap out of the old bag of tricks a few times, but their backchecking was nothing short of stifling. Wings played very unevenly - moments of brilliance along with moments of WTH, but a surprisingly good 0-0 game through 3.
I wouldn't mind seeing Phaneuf choke on a Timbit sometime soon though.
I can't add a lot to what harold has already said, but I will chime in with sometimes posts are deleted because they're responding to a post that needed to be deleted and to leave it would make no sense.
I deleted a whole page from the Howard thread. I knew that thread was going to be trouble the minute it was started, but did what I could to keep it alive because it had the potential to be a good discussion. I will guarantee that I personally have never deleted a post simply because I disagreed with the opinion stated therein. If I delete a post, more often than not it's because it contains a personal attack, or more recently contains information Matt would prefer not be available on LGW for legal reasons. Personally I would rather refute an opinion than delete it. If we all thought the same way, it would make for poor discussion.
Another suggestion I'd like to make is to PLEASE PM a mod if you have any questions or concerns - don't post in GD threads. It will be deleted because it's off topic (not the place for those types of conversations), not because we're power-hungry. Seriously, cleaning up off topic or personal attack posts is not in my top ten ways to spend an evening.
Please express your opinions about the game, not about other posters, their ability to see, whether they ever actually watched a hockey game before, their parentage or whether they're the briefs or boxers type.
Saw this after the period ended, so I don't know if it's on or not because it's all commercials right now, but if it's on, it's here. It's the official Wings radio station, so you may want to bookmark FFR.
