Same. At least to start the game. Maybe it makes me a bad fan.. but after the Islanders scored their third goal, last night (Moulson, I believe -- which is just awesome, too) I was basically just pulling for Strait to get a point to sort of further rub it in.

And yeah... WB/S is, to me, a massive area of concern, in general.
Like I said earlier, I was bullish on him almost immediately, because I figured that at WORSE, we had a 5/6 guy on the cheap and wasn't a liability, with good skating and good puck management. Paired with the right guy, he could have been a decent #4.

In other words, he was already an NHL'er, a guy who was a little too good to be in the minors, with potential upside.

Lovejoy? Jesus ****ing Christ, he is what he is and will NEVER get better.

I'm gonna hurt someone in my league game tonight...
