Playing a simpler game will do such wwonders. I don't get why we have to do stupid no look passes or make huge rink wide passes 25 hours a day and 8 days a week. Make the smart simple plays, we will Oohh and ahhh when goals are scored cause of it, and when good D is played.

Wonder if Rupp and Orr will renew their love affair tonight? Rupp bested him in a couple of their first fights, then Orr laid the smack down on him in a game vs the Devs. I think Rupp was out of the lineup after that one. Orr back at the garden ill bet hell be looking to go with someone.
Damn, everytime I see that video, I wanna hit something. Those commentators making fun of Sauer after the hit, who may never play again from this mind you.
for ****ing real... classless move by an otherwise classy organization. clean hit or not, if you see a guy laying on the ice you keep your ****ing mouth shut. they teach you that when you're 4 years old. one of the announcers clearly wanted the other to stop talking and realized the severity of the hit. that video makes me sick. clean hit or not, you don't celebrate over an injury.
i really hope we don't have an early fight, we can't afford to lose the momentum tonight
The opponent tonight is not the Toronto Maple leafs. We are neither blessed or condemned by the injury to Joffery Lupul. The opposition goaltending is almost as irrelevant to us as the eventual back up we have sitting on the bench whether it be Henrik or Marty. Oh no no. The opponent tonight is a team that was said to be among the elite in the league this season with the potential to be one of the best that this league has seen in the last decade. The opposition to the New York Rangers tonight is of course, The New York Rangers.
totally agree with this.
Every game we've lost this year has been almost 100% about our failings than the other team flat out beating us.
I don't know man, Marc Staal probably isn't going to be in the minors anytime soon.
1 game for conditioning. The kid will be back and giving players headaches with his puck control.
It's hard to call a hit beauty, when a player is injured. but it was pretty damn clean, I'm sure Sauer doesn't have any ill feelings towards Dion. It's a physical game and things happen, he wasn't looking to injure him. See the De Costa comments after his encounter with Phaneuf.
Yeah, it was a clean hit. I have nothing against the hit. What bothers me is the reactions of the commentators after the incident.
I don't think they expected it to be that serious because Sauer did get off the ice pretty much on his own right away. If he was laying there like Savard, they probably wouldn't have been that pumped up.
