I think Noel needs a week off. All you ever see of him now is him being angry or depressed and ratting on players.

And Ladd lost all the little respect I had for him. (which was gained in that 30 minute documentary before the home opener)

And my memory eludes me, but what did Dudley do when the Thrashers began their 3-16 slide or whatever it was in January last year?
Rick never got the time to finish what he started, he was only GM of the Thrashers for one year (Apr 10' to Apr 11).

Thank Rick Dudley for our best forward (Wheeler) our toughest D man (Stuart) and for signing backup Mason.

And the sad thing is, we'd be stealing from the Ducks.

Should be an exciting 1-0 Shootout victory for one team tomorrow.

McLean has nothing positive to say about anything outside of the GTA, he rags on WPG every chance he gets. Remember May 31, after the presser the HC crew is doing their thing and he just had this scowl look on his face, the only comments he made were about how small the arena was. If was so smart he would still be a GM, he is just stirring the pot that is all, Noel said nothing wrong, the team has no go to guys. I trust Noel and Chevy are doing the right things behind the scenes.

I just think that they really need to win this game. Last game was a disappointing loss, and if the month of January showed us anything is that these guys are affected by bad losses. They need to put it behind them, go in with a winning attitude and show up for 60 minutes of hockey.

If they do that, they'll win no problem.

Then that momentum will carry over into the home stand. Hopefully its as good as December's.

6.5 to 7 hours, depending on the traffic at the border.

There was something called the "Twin Cities Invasion" and the people who set it up put together tickets, hotel rooms and a bus ride into a package for people to buy. Was pretty cool.

Noel needs to run the correct lines and use the chemistry hes seen throughout the season.

Kane should be playing with Little and Wheeler
Burmistrov with Antropov and either Ladd or Wellwood
GST is fine
Fourth line is just the leftovers that you hope can help your team out.

I'm a bit confused - I listened yo the Noel comments and it just seems like he's commenting on his frustration with putting special teams together...

Perhaps people are taking this a bit out of context?

Wow, you guys really eat that publicity stuff up.

I work at a radio station and have to say most of you bought what the reporters were selling in a HUGE way.

I admit Noel has been emotional on several occasions with the media and he does need to turn it down. Except everyone is reading into the whole "I coach what I have" thing waaay too much. It's a phrase I've heard many coaches use and this is a prime example of you buying into exactly what the media is selling. I'm not saying they aren't exactly correct, but they're trying to pull you to one end of the spectrum to sell you a story. I've had to write pieces like this and they know what they're doing.

Coincidentally Noel is edgy with reporters for a while and bad stories about his coaching come from reporters. Strange coincidence.

As for the actual meat of what he's saying I do agree with the sentiment that he has to tone some stuff down. This is an emotional time and it's clearly seen when the Coach and Captain both make strong sentiments that they may need some outside help with the team.

A lot of you are REALLY reading deeply into this though. It's kind of like high school English class. The author wrote "and the curtains were blue" the teacher wanted you to explain the symbolism of the blue curtains actually signified the narrators deep depression, when in actuality the writer just meant that the curtains were ****ing blue.

Maybe I'm jaded because I work in media, but when people start regurgitating a strong opinion from an article and start putting a thousand types of meaning and significance into a phrase like "I coach what I teach" and those opinions line up with the reporters I can't help but think I'm right.

I promise to keep rocking the Bieber Beaver if the Jets start putting some wins together.

Maybe if I punish us all a bit it can be our pennance for a playoff drive.

Agreed. The phrase, generally, isn't a dig at the team -- it's usually a way of dodging reporters trying to work something out of a coach along the lines of trade sound-bytes (or the coach thinks that's what they're angling for). It should, more often than not, be read as "I'm not going to comment on what we need to trade for."
