Unless one of them agrees to actually shoot, it would be just a punch of passes back to one another:

I'm so irritated.
I set up a second HF window and refresh it every few minutes after the second time that happened.

If I have a real long one, I do it in a text editor then paste it in. I've been burned before too.

I learned from CBS to always have a back-up too. I just highlight and copy after every paragraph if it's long then that way I can just paste it if i get a crappy system glitch...

As for the tread, great stuff guys! Here's my 6 bad & 6 good

Bleak spots

1) Not a fair thing to say, but Bouchard... I know it's not his fault so I'm not blamming him, but I am disapointed that we had 4 million sitting on the shelf all season. (I know we free'd up some money putting him on Long Term IR but I would have rather had him.. On that note, was him on IR how we could afford Kobasew?) I believe he & Havlat would have meshed well... Hopefully next season...

2) JAMES SHEPPARD - thats all I need to say... I'm at my limit with this kid. I know he was thrown into the system all wrong but I hope Fletch can pull another Latendresse style of 1 for 1 trade.. Maybe a change of scenery will do him good

3) Backstrom - you guys already said it all

4) Havlat - again, you guys already said all that needs to be said here too. "Hopefully next season" about sums it up...

5) Boogaard...? I mean really did you expect anything more from him? I agree we should just put him on the powerplay and have him camp right in front of the net.. I t may work, it may not but it would be funny as hell watching the D trying frantically to move him!

6) Injuires in General.. I know I touched on this in #1 & I know Fletch said that he's going to take a serious look at the problem this off-season but as far as dispointments go, never having our full team on the ice was a major disapointment to say the least...

Bright Spots

1) Mikko - Glad he keeps improving every season, thats definitly what you want to see out of players! I would really like to see him hit the 30 goal mark tho, I know he has it in him!

2) Latendresse - Doesn't really need explanation, but glad to have him, hopefully this season wasn't a fluke & he continues to give a big middle finger to his critics by lighting the lamp even more next season...

3) Bruno - We already love him and always will because of 2003 but the fact that he keeps putting up superb numbers makes us love him even more.

4) Mittens - ehhh, I was a little disapointed when we originally signed him but I feel he's been a decent pick-up. There's always room to improve but I think he has been fairly decent...

5) Wellman & Prosser - Good snags, excited to watch them develope. I already love watching Wellman skate, I love his speed! "I wanna go fast!"

6) Khudobin - I really liked his poise and I was really impressed with what I saw from him in his short playing time. Maybe we can see him a little more this next season because he might be a solid yet cheap route to go in the future..
