Washie is mounting a fierce comeback from being down 2-0 to the BeeJays.

3-2 now after a couple of really quick goals in the 3rd for Ovechkin and crew.

Makes me happy. Washie is one of the teams I put money on tonight.

Jesus. Ovechkin gets his second goal and the Caps are now up 4-2, all of them coming in the third.

I almost feel sorry for the BeeJays.

Lol, I just checked the score not too long ago and it was 2-1 BJ's. For a second, I thought: "Well, good for them."

That was short-lived.

You know Joe Bininati's voice grates on me, but once you get past it you realize hes actually a pretty good play by play guy.

Damn I wish we could get rid of Dumb and Dumber.

Hey neat, the Jets won and made me some more damned money.

Wonder if I'll ever manage to get back to 500 vcash.

And ****, best month in Franchise History for the Jets. 10 wins in December.

**** I'm jealous, lol.

They look so ****ing good. Awesome cycle, and it's so obvious what their OFD do for them. I'd kill to have Byfuglien on the Wild. I honestly think they've got at least a shot at putting up a (hilarious) SE division title at MTSC.

Habs are probably the worst NHL team right now.

Something major needs to happen.

I used to hate his voice whenever a Cap scored. Now it doesn't bother me much.

Rick Jeanneret's voice bothers me. Very much. Especially when the Sabres score.

They need to gut out the small old dudes taht dont do anything and start a youth movement. Not fully on oilers-style, but kinda a reload like we're doing next season. It's really too bad, b/c i've been sorta rooting for them as my third team since i watched that Rocket Richard movie.

Well Vanny lost last night. That's damned good news for us if we want to get back to form and give them a race for that last NW Division title.

Wow Scott Arniel needs to go. Team sucks, he can't communicate with the media, it's embarrassing to watch.

I just dont understand how he's hanging around. Maybe hes got incriminating pictures of the owner? I cant explain it.

Well that's what they get for firing Martin right when the team was starting to put things together.

Cunneyworth's like a fish out of water though. They've gotta find his long-term replacement, like, yesterday.

If the language "issue" is the excuse they use to bring in someone new ASAP, I won't complain.

Well I personally think the language thing is stupid. you find the best guy available, and if its that big of a deal, make it mandatory for him to learn french.

If you can't watch/hear what he said for whatever reason:

Quote:
"You've got skilled players, but on 4 on 4 where you think that skill would show up, It hasn't necessarily treated you kindly.."

"They have skill too. If you didn't notice. They had all their skill out too. They made a skill play and I don't think Mase saw that one where they had traffic in front, they threw a wrister up top that found its way into the net."


"But throughout the season, have you noticed something on 4 on 4..."

"Have you noticed that on 4 on 4 we've been beaten up on 4 on 4? Goals Against? I don't think so, I'll go and show you the stats on that if you want. That hasn't been a problem for us, but it was tonight."


"You've been outscored 8 to 1."

"Is that what it is? Okay, well I guess you guys have all the answers and are just waiting to jump so, I guess we'll have to work on that too. So just keep piling it on, whatever you want just keep piling it on."

That is one frustrated coach.

Why does he still have a job?

I'm wondering if our good friend Todd Richards would take his spot if Arniel was fired.

Oh I agree. But it's a convenient excuse they have ready and waiting if they want to get rid of him ASAP without people raising questions about whether they dumped him too quickly.

Somehow I would actually look at that as an upgrade.
