It's a wonder he lasted so long there. I'm sending my CV because the bar sure isn't set very high.

Howson should've been fired ages ago.

The Flyers came remarkably close to acquiring Ryan (in fact for a few moments they believed they had a deal in place) at the last draft and have wanted to get Bobby in orange and black since he was a kid playing hockey across the river in South Jersey.
If you recall, Homer was pissed about something at about the middle of the first round.

Oh man, the goal the Stars just scored... I'll try to add youtube ASAP, that was an absolutely hillarious bounce of a puck from the boards to the back of Dubnyk and then to the net

It's not a conspiracy or anything, so we can rule that out.

As a fellow goaltender (just slightly below the NHL), I feel for Dubnyk on that one. No worse feeling than losing view of the puck and scrambling to catch sight of it again.

Just watching the highlights from the Caps-Panthers game, I can't wait for this week's thread on the main board about Florida's impressive attendance record and capacity percentage.

There are rows upon rows upon rows of empty seats (not just their idiotic "Red Zone" section which are the premium lower bowl sections behind the benches that allow a ticket holder the option to sit there or to be wined and dined in a separate section-this according to a defensive and deluded Florida Panthers fan I've had the misfortune of encountering)

I have nothing against the team or their fans but clearly this organization is cooking the books.

Did that goal bother Dubnyk? judging by the score it looks like it changed the game.

Uhhh. Ok.

I hope he plans on getting up to speed on a brand new and unfamiliar CBA (And likely prospect/player group) really, really, quickly.

Browsing through the thread on the CBJ forum earlier, a good amount of them seemed to be okay with him.

I think with the way Howson was going, they could have promoted the food distribution manager to GM, and they would have been happy.

Hextall is going to slash Tambellini in the back of his legs if he walks past the CBJ table.
