I will gladly eat my words on that. Mase looked shaky early, but really stepped up. Good for him.

And I have been very impressed with Spals.

I went to the Caps v Jets game and watched the Caps dawdle around the ice and get smoked. I managed to get through the entire game without looking at the scores of other games. Got home at 10:30 and started the Preds game on GCL. Great game and a huge W on the road. My impressions:

• Spaling had a fantastic game. Great hustle, good goal, great forecheck, kudos all around.
• Good lord I missed Bourque. He kind of botched the breakaway, but he positioned himself to get a breakaway and was vrooming around the ice. Our bottom 6 is much better with him.
• Josi had another stellar defensive game. Really happy with him thus far.
• Star of the game is definitely Mason. I went in worried and came out much more comfortable with our back-up or if Peks (knock on wood) ever gets injured. Happy for him.

Suter being -2 and on the ice for all 3 GA is just icing on the cake. And the Wild PxP guy is awful; Gabriel Bouchard and he called Klein Weber like 6 times. Huge homers as well.

The only thing I'm really pissed about is the fact that Fox Sports South had on my TV schedule they were going to show the game. I turned it on, and it was North carolina basketball...Ugh....

It's funny to read the Wild's board and see how they perceive their team to be so much more talented then ours.

I will say their 3rd best offensive players as better than our best but our defensive group is better, and I like our offensive depth.

Let's see.....


Philly is not winning. They could really use a Weber defensively.


Detroit is falling apart like my rusting car.


Suter was a -2 and on the ice for all 3 goals. Also loved watching him dive head first into a net in a failing attempt at preventing a goal.

We talk about the central being a 4 team race, but the team left out is Detroit.

Their PP retired, their defense retired. And their stats are beginning to look like Columbus last year.

I'm happy, so far.

I think that was Spurgeon diving; Suter had charged back up the ice at all possible speed (he'd been at the half boards and Spurgeon was the ONLY guy on the point, which is why Erat got the break), and with a herculean effort got there just in time to watch the Marty Party.

New knit cap, too, but I wasn't wearing it during the game.

anyone else find it amusing it looked like Suter threw his arms up like he was celebrating when Legwand scored?

Pretty much sums it up. There are so many people/fans that project Minnisota to all of a sudden be a top 4 team in the west with the additions of Suter and Parise. It just doesn't work like that. Other than their 1st line, it's all very "meh". Book is still out on Granlund. Cullen, Seto, don't scare anyone. Brodziak looks like a hell of a player though, I really like him.

You make the call. IMO, it looks like he puts his hands up to cushion his collision with Legwand, then stops and skates away, but I can see it both ways.
