Gotta love being the underdog; but
...this article makes me want to jump of a cliff into a tub of acid.


Things in it I dont agree with:

-Giving Tampa the edge in net over the habs: Sure Khabulin got 3 shutouts against the offensive powerhouse of the ... wait.. offensive powerhouse? Not quite... I watched alot of the series and NYI didn't throw too many challenging shots his way.
Theo's been improving since the beginning of the playoffs.

-Giving Tortorella the X instead of Julien. The writer of this article seems to be giving Julien the edge in his breakdown; talking about how he masterfully handled his team and the media after the Ribeiro and Kovalev incidents... then at the end he decides to give it to Tortorella even though he often overcoaches... :dunno:

-He calls the habs ability to kill penalties unspectacular and adequate... I guess the fact that the habs haven't allowed a PP goal since game one must have escaped him.

- INTANGIBLES; Oh man... his breakdown is all about the habs... and he gives the advantage to the Lightning. Why? :loony:

This guy also chose Boston to destroy the habs... Hope he's proved wrong again.

Check out the article and post comments if you have any...

Well, all i gota say is, when we are on our game, we are better than the Islanders!

Lets hope that translates into a winning of the series.
