@NHL: It needs no introduction, here's Damien Brunner's SO goal that won the game for the #RedWings tonight. Watch: http://t.co/UCWZOVro

I was hoping Detroit would be bad enough early in this short season to be desperate enough to want to deal for Omark and reunite that Swiss line. Might get a middling draft pick at least. Winning tonight doesn't help.

Flames lose and start the season 0 and 2. Always nice to see.

He and Kipper are notorious for their slow starts.

Indeed. You think they would have learned from the last few years...

Oh well, we've all seen this script before. Start off crappy, get hot in the middle, fade down the stretch and slot into that wonderful 9th spot.

...and then go way out in left field for a draft pick.

To be fair, Sven was a very good pick.

Hah, I can imagine. What's Michaels going to be like if the Oilers ever get super good? Yeesh.

I certainly noticed the Cowtowners beaking about our "Hobbits" a lot less after he was picked.

He got excited even before Hemsky scored. And I don't mean Rod Phillips' raise the voice excited, I mean over-the-top Jack Michaels excited.

I actually enjoyed his call on that goal.

He really went all in on it though. If Hemsky hadn't scored it definitely would have sounded silly.

Maybe in retrospect it seems overblown but while I was caught up in the tension of the game I really appreciated the enthusiasm. It was an exciting win and he conveyed it well.

I'm normally not the biggest Jack Michaels fan but I really did enjoy his call yesterday in the shootout.

It's possible to convey enthusiasm without being way over-the-top, or to at least wait until the event (goal or save) has happened before you start going crazy. Phillips did it all the time.
