Awesome. Rather him be there than not. Good experience.

I feel that all this post regular season experience will damage our prospects. They are going to come here expecting to be winners and will not know how to handle mediocrity

I believe the complete opposite. They're gonna come here with a winning attitude and that attitude is gonna rub off on everyone who is used to mediocrity.

Great! Welcome Matt!

Wow, I didn't think Hackett was that well-known. Good for him. :handclap:

I'm surprised because the last two games Hackett played he left the ice injured but then again if the 3rd goalie is playing Canada's screwed.

I'm pretty sure he was kidding. At least I hope he was. Sarcasm detector might be malfunctioning.

After this last season I don't think anyone's sarcasm detector will work right until late July at the earliest.

I was kidding, I do hope he is healthy and plays

Hmm hoping that I'll bump to him wearing my Mikko Koivu third jersey! :laugh:

Even if he is just 3rd in the goalie line, it's still awesome!

We have a winner in that kid!
