No, he's had enough rest. If we take care of business these next 2-3 games...good chance the Pittsburgh and Washington games arent necessary. Hank can get some time off then. Losing tonight would be to waste a rather large gift the Isles just gave us, so I want my best team out on the ice.
Actually I'd rather sit him against Boston and/or Philly (assuming we win tonight.) Considering we're likely to have 4 days off after the final regular season game vs. the Caps I think he should get a little work the last couple of games of the season (vs. Pitt and Wash.) Having a week off heading into the playoffs might be too much time.
Given a choice, I'd rather lose to Philly than Montreal. For us, two points is two points, no matter where we get it, but I'd prefer that Philly have the home-ice advantage on the dangerous Pittsburgh team.
Plus, I would rather play it safe and take my two points in Montreal because we have enough of a lead on Pitts. If we win tonight, we'd need to win one of 4 games and have Pitts lose one of 5 games to hold on to the first place. That's easy enough, but first we must not let tonight slip.
You guys think Torts will play Lundqvist the remaining games? You think he cares about the President's trophy? Last time the 2 top seeds were in the finals was 01 and it didn't happen for years before that.
I think he means the difference in being 1st overall in the league vs 2nd overall in the league doesn't matter that much if second place is in the other conference, because the chances of you losing home ice advantage in the finals is pretty slim
I'm not saying it can't be done, but it would be hard to get a large group saying it the same way.
You kind of combine "Thanks" and "for" together. It's easy. If everyone got in rhythm, it would sound perfectly fine and normal. If I could send a voice file, I would show you exactly what I mean and how fine it sounds.
