"Unelected and Unaccountable" - 2.16.09 - Nashville vs. Ottawa
 
Quote:

The Senate is referred to as the "upper house" of Parliament, and the House of Commons is sometimes referred to as the "lower house". This does not, however, imply that the Senate is more powerful than the House of Commons, merely that its members and officers outrank the members and officers of the House of Commons in the order of precedence for the purposes of protocol. Indeed, as a matter of practice and custom, the Commons is by far the dominant chamber.

Just out of curiosity, what prompted you to pick Mahovlich (I assume that's who you mean)?

Cody Bass is the player he's referencing in the injury report

No, that's a GOOD thing.


Tonight has not been our night in any respect.

Ottawa was in our mug all night long, we couldn't do **** all ... see you on the golf course first week of April boys, if not sooner

We had a real stinker of a game against a team that's playing very good hockey right now. We're 7-3 in February and 8-4 since the All-Star break. I'm willing to win 66-70% of our games from here on out if it means an occasional ugly loss.

everytime we don't get points, is really bad for our playoff hopes ... we have zero games in hand on anyone ahead of us in the standings with the lone exception of Anaheim, but surprise surprise they're sitting in 9th as we speak

We were 5 points out of the playoffs with 10 games to go last year. And we made it. Anything can happen.

It's true that the teams ahead of us last year crapped the bed down the stretch, allowing us to pass them, but you never know. Luongo might have another kid ;)

predfan24 02-17-2009 01:06 AM

I knew tonight was gonna be a bad night when the drunk rednecks sitting next to me started yelling at Dumont to get in a fight while we were on the PP:laugh: They also kept saying " We can't let a team from a gay country like Canada beat us" :cry: If only they knew the majority of a our team is canadian. Those idiots, me being very sick and the Preds ****** play probaly contributed to what I would say was the worst game to attend so far this year.

Seth Lake 02-17-2009 01:22 AM

Something Santos said on the radio prior to Thursday night's game against St. Louis was incredibly true and remains true today.

He was talking with Trotz about the record needed to get into the playoffs and said that the only thing they both agreed would be completely true without fail was that they won all 26 games they had remaining.

It is cliche, but everyone has to take it one game at a time and take care of business when they have the opportunity. It remains true today, if the Predators go undefeated from here on we would probably be in 5th come playoff time. We cannot rely on others to help us, we must take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself and not dwell on the past. Everyone except for the team that takes home the Cup has plenty of opportunity to reflect on their season during the summer.

sparkle twin 02-17-2009 01:47 AM

No energy at all. The building had no life either. Saturday you could feel it, the arena was buzzing, tonight though, just dull. And then the team comes out flat and takes a penalty in the first minute. That was it, Ottawa got going and The Preds were never in it the rest of the night.

Oh and, outworked, outskated, out everything all night. I know Ottawa was hot right now, but so were we, no excuses.

RollingPredFan 02-17-2009 07:31 AM

Just brutal. Sullivan looks washed up. Dumont won't shoot the puck and also is playing awful. Our PP is beyond abysmal, yet we keep trying the same people and getting the same result. Its frustrating if we could just score a little more this team may do some things, Rinne can't play perfect every night.

Nitrous Mafia 02-17-2009 08:38 AM

Okay, you're right, maybe I'm glad I didn't get to watch this.

jstreet 02-17-2009 12:29 PM

the pp is embarassing.


the building was dull because we never had anything to get excited about.

It's hard to get excited when you know what every "rush" is going to lead to and you know exactly what is going to happen when the power play unit takes the ice.

that is hilarious - i love going to rinks in the southern US - the energy, noise and atmosphere are great. I want to visit Nashville and see a game next year - if I still have a job :help:

You should see how quiet our arena in Ottawa is -even if sold out !

It was a great game to see Shea Weber - who will be patrolling the blueline for Canada at the next olympics as well.

PredsMan 02-17-2009 01:14 PM

Dumont is playing awful.

what's his deal? why doesn't he shoot?

Last nite he had several prime chances, and always passed. And most of them ended up turnovers.:help:

The Erat stigma has been passed ?

Seeing where Erat is definitely in the top three (Weber, Erat, Legwand I would guess - not looking it up) for shots on goal since the All-Star break, I would have to say...yes.

Personally, I think Dumont has been suffering from post-concussion syndrome since he took the leaping roundhouse to the head by Burrows earlier this season. Much like Mike Smith in Tampa, I really think he has felt generally OK, however not quite at full speed, and I truly believe he is not sitting out because he knows his importance to this team. That leads to him pressing harder and the cycle continues a downward spiral. Can't prove it, but that is my feeling.

Now on a more practical note, JP has to feel the pressure to get the puck to Sully and Arnott when on the ice together. Have you ever seen the looks on the faces of the two of them when they don't get the puck in a scoring opportunity? They throw their eyes to the sky and curse up a storm. Neither of his linemates go to the net giving him no help there. Both of his teammates are commonly seen standing right next to each other across the ice waiting for a pass. If JP shoots the puck, it better go in, because if it doesn't the best result will be a save and stoppage of play. Shooting to create (generate a rebound opportunity) would be pointless because neither of his linemates are going to crash the net and if he misses the net, the team is screwed because Dumont will be in too deep to backcheck and Arnott and Sullivan simply don't do that, ever.
