WE NEED SOME BALLS AND IT LOOKS LIKE SMITH'S BALLS HAVE DROPPED IN TIME FOR THE PLAYOFFS.
If you think that the softer, offensive game without physicality is gonna fly in a division with Goalie Killer Lucic and the keystone cops, the Toronto Maple buttnuggets, and a tougher Ottawa team, you've got another thing coming. It's one thing to play Boston, Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa once every other year, and completely different to play them 4-6 games a year.
I wouldn't spend 333 million a day dealing with a guy with grenades who knows he's going to be dead. There's no way you let this kid get away after you killed brother the same night. No way.
No, but you would spend 333 million to ensure he didn't go around setting up more explosives in random places to kill more people. If you tracked the play by play on the Boston police scanner yesterday, there had to have been 20-30 reports of suspicious items, triggers, other things.
And you can't put a price tag on public safety or crowd stability.
Five million dollars for a goalie who can't steal a game? Please.
2011 2nd round. he stole 2 of the 3 games leading into game 7.
Earlier this week vs Colorado when the Wings collapsed a 3-0 lead into a 3-2 lead, who outright robbed their chance with less than 30 seconds to go? Sure as hell wasn't Cheveldae.
How many games has he kept us in THIS SEASON ALONE while our offense has sputtered around in circles and given up horrific turnovers and breakaways?
2010 after the olympic break when Detroit was in 9th place, who stood and delivered a rock solid performance in the pipes to get us to the playoffs even though Lidstrom, Z, Datsyuk, and others were hurt that year?
