I'm trying not to be negative. 2 nights ago, we were down 3-0, came back and tied it. We all know the history. This can be done. We are not dead yet. 40 minutes. 2 goals. Get the next one. Lets see what happens.
Rolling around in his twelve million dollars, counting down the weeks until he's due another ten million.

Stop making excuses for MDZ. What happened to his grandparents is rough, I know. But if his head is someplace else he needs to realize this and take himself out. A strong player knows his limits. Not everyone can pull off a Jordan, Favre or Woods.
Sucks when you're the best team in the league for the regular season (okay actually 2nd best, but we had the most regulation and overtime wins) and you get bounced by a team that wouldn't have even made the playoffs if they had half as many shootout wins, but hey that's the playoffs. A not so good team that gets hot can make it all the way. Anyway, this series turned when the Rangers couldn't win game 2. That would have been huge if we could have held onto that lead in game 2.
Maybe playing with a playoff-type intensity every game in the regular season isn't such a good idea. For one, your team will be burnt out by the time the real playoffs start, and two, other teams turn it up when the playoffs start, while your team has nothing left to give.
But im incredibly proud of what this club accomplished this season.
Its not over, yet. But im preparing for the worst.
Be heartbroken when the clock reads 00:00 and we're on the wrong side of the score...
I believe. I will always believe. it could be the worst 40 minutes of the season...I don't care. I won't give up until the clock reads 00:00 and then I will have a few drinks...hit the beaches for 12 weeks and start all over again then...
I want Gaborik, MDZ, Dubinsky gone next season. Rupp needs to be eating popcorn in the press box every game, Boyle needs to be used properly on the 4th line, AA and Hagelin are 3rd liners, San Jose probably wants to shake things up, Gaborik, MDZ, Dubinsky for Pavelski, Clowe, Murray
