Yyyyeah I'm watching Ducks-Jets tomorrow night. Selanne's return to the 'Peg and HD stream on GameCenter is just too much to pass up.

I hate to admit, but yes. Same plan here. Can't miss this one! I'll be watching TV broadcast here, but ..of course.. lurking Wild from GCL at the same time!

Again, faith is being tested... Are we true? Am I true?

I just pray Koivu is only out the one game and hopefully we have him, wellman, and Butch back for Vanny, otherwise were gonna get blown out.

A slide would certainly hurt but it all goes back to the expectations at the start of this season(for me at least). I'd honestly be more disappointed if Fletcher made another ill-advised(Barker) knee-jerk trade to try to make a quick fix(Kobasew) than to watch things spiral out of control.

I sure as hell hpe to god Fletch has learned his lesson about knee-jerk trades.

But then again the owner might not have. THAT is what scares me. IF the owner pushes him to do something.

Yeah, this was a rebuilding season? And this far it's gone pretty nicely..
Hope they remember this and don't turn it to season of destruction.

Doesn't sound like it's too bad, hopefully he just misses a game or two.

All I ask is that the guys don't come back until they are ready. These injuries suck, and we desperately need them in the lineup. But the LAST thing we need is for a guy to come back early, aggravate the injury and make it worse, only to make the recovery twice as long. I'd rather have them sit a few extra games (and heal properly) now rather than missing weeks or months by bouncing on and off the IR when the race to the postseason really heats up.

One of Coyle or Zucker on the other hand... Though, just having a decent feel for the character make-up of those two, I can't see either doing that to their school.
well we don't have to worry about that anymore

Good stuff. From what the pbp guys were saying last night about Butch, it sounded like he could have played but Yeo decided not to as a precaution. He definitely could have helped, but I'm not too messed up about it.

Hopefully it's just Almond to Housty to make room for others.

Well Koivu being on the ice is a big sign. Hopefully with him back in the lineup centering Heater and Clutter, the team actually shows up against Vancouver and gives them a fight.

How is it such a big impact for missing koivu that the team doesn't seem to do anything right on the ice!

Sounds like my epic rant from the end of the last GDT, only highly condensed and scrubbed of all profanity.
