Nashville's color guy is Terry Crisp, and I think he takes two double Jacks during every commercial break.

And Fel, you can start the thread if you want. We can always go in there to bust heads

I've been thoroughly impressed with Gilbert over the last week or so. Seems what Oiler fans were saying is true. The more he played the better his defensive game was and he's a very good puck mover.

I've learned to never underestimate a hockey player's toughness.

They mentioned there's been a heat wave in Nashville lately.

The Wild must be enjoying being able to waste a power play cycling between their D-men without being booed the whole time.

Well I don't think we'd be able to get any high profile d-men to sign here during FA so if we want to sign a d-man I think trading for a d-man's rights is about the only way we're going to get one. I think Carle is a solid top 4 PMD and would help us out quite a bit.

His voice is kind of... Goofy sounding, but he hasn't said anything idiotic. It's a refreshing change from Minnesota's TV crew.

honestly Legwand? trying to help us win is not welcome right now. nice to see the game getting a bit feisty here, now just need Nashville to score a couple so I can sit back and enjoy the chippiness and 0 points in the standings.

I really do like Gilbert.
He's one of the few D we have that can actually make the first break-out pass consistently to the Forwards stick.

I've heard Philly fans complain that he's overpaid at nearly 4M per season. Not living up to his hype.

Why would Carle be more inclined to sign with us a week or two before he hits UFA? I just don't think its worth trading a pick for a UFA rights.

Heatley was playing better D than I've seen from most of our defensemen all year. Pretty solid.

Wish someone--anyone--would have dropped the gloves with Weber at the end. that can only benefit the wild.

i'm surprised by how much I like Gilbert...but the huge cynical part of me says that's only because everyone else looks bad.
We'll see next year.

unless you intend to make him an offer so good he can't refuse I can't see trading for UFA rights, and the only time I'd want to see us overpay like that is if we're hopefully one player from a serious Cup run.

Well if not Carle then who do we target via either FA or trade? I don't care what anybody says, we definitely need to bring in a top 4 d-man this off-season. I consider Suter or Weber to be entirely off-limits as they wouldn't want to sign here and because trading for their rights would cost more than we'd be willing to give up.

Yeah, but with the same group almost...Schultz wasn't able to look good at all, so still a great trade.

Though, I don't think it's as much of an illusion you seem to assume it is.

bloody Islanders; last week they were winning iirc and I was hoping we wouldn't have to worry about them, they seem to have found the tank we lost though.
