I disagree. Think it was a fine goal, the whole point of the shootout is to try flamboyant stuff, even if it doesn't directly effect the scoring of the goal. Why go strike down a player when he does exactly that?

what? the shootouts are for showboating?

no, sorry.

they are a 1v1 where the object is to score/prevent score and thus, help determine who will win the game.

i watched that live last night and was like "whoa, what was that?" but it didn't bother me. looks like he actually flubbed the shot and got lucky. it was exciting, tho. the problem is, as bmac put it, what if he loses the puck doing some bull**** like that and loses the game for his team? no, it ain't what shootouts are about, though that type of stuff might make the league reconsider getting rid of the shootout.

The difference is the kid is playing in his first NHL game. Walking in like you own the place, while impressive, is gonna put a target on your back. I guarantee you he's gonna be receiving some big hits in the coming weeks. He better hope he's not going against Philly anytime soon.

All i'm saying is, if you do that in your first NHL game, guys are going to welcome you to the NHL the "proper" way and he and his teammates better be ready for it. There's a reason there aren't a ton of ego's in hockey, and that's because it's a humbling sport. And this kid has yet to be humbled.

But i take nothing away from his obvious skills. The goal was sick, and if that kid was in a Panther's jersey doing that, i would've crapped my pants out of excitement.

Alright, let me correct myself. The shootout allows players to try flamboyant moves and what not. I personally like the creativity in the shootout.

I really don't see the big deal about the goal.
It's not as if he completely fooled the goalie with his spin-o-rama AT CENTER ICE.

Ellis had a real decent shot to stop that puck, and he didn't. Tampa Bay's goalies really suck. Like...if their goalies were halfway decent, they'd be a top team in the East. Sort of like the whole if we had an elite forward, we'd be a playoff team, as well. They're the Panthers, in reverse.

i just dont get the whole argument about it. things like this makes the shootouts more fun and entertaining, so why are we complaining?
and just so u know, omark isnt a humble guy. he just oozes confidence. He knows what he can do, and he wont try anything he feels uncomfortable with. this is his style of play, this is his game. if we had him on our roster id be psyched, and im 100% sure every one of yall would be too.

Yeah. Poster El Nino on the main boards claims to have inside sources saying the Cats were high on Boyd. We'll see I guess.

rolston on waivers now. i highly doubt we will make a move now, but if he's put on re-entry waivers its 2.5 for 2 years. i used to like him a lot, but that was like 6-7 years ago so im not so sure about him now.
what do u guys think?

Definitely not at this point in his career. Five years ago, I would have definitely give him a thought, but we don't need a guy on his way out of the league in the near future.

Just watched the HBO 24/7 capitals/penguins and it is excellent. I recommend you do whatever you can to watch this.

I highly recommend watching the documentary HBO is doing on the winter classic. It's pretty funny and it shows the Caps locker room during the Panthers game.

Edit: Guess I should have looked before posting. I agree with RR!

watched the first installment last night. very cool. great exposure for the game.

anyone else think boudreau's a bit of a clown? not incredibly articulate and, fss, how many F bombs can you drop in one speech to your players? also, in the first clip, he's got half the hoagie he was eating during the interview still on his lips.

Not good for us. Not only did Tampa get better, but there goes another team who could've been a trading partner for Vokoun.

I really don't know how much of a market there is going to be for him with Tampa now having a goalie and Ottawa struggling.

Honestly, I'm completely shocked your knocking a coach, but that's exactly what I thought. He made himself look awful, imo. Bylsma oth, looked like the exact type of coach you want on your team.

Yeah, he didn't look good in the first episode but my opinion changed by the third episode.

This is a loss for us in every way. Tampa gets better, doesn't need a goalie, NYI gets worse which also hurts us tank wise.

As of now it is bad but a goalie could get injured on a playoff team.

For me, it's not wanting our cross-state rivals to succeed that much.
