Yea, I was exaggerating on Nash a bit. He has played well at times, but he seems snake bit in the goal department. I'm trying to get at the fact that he should be a driving force on this team. He just hasn't seemed to totally find his game yet. Of course, now that I said that he'll have two goals and two assists tonight... at least I hope so!

They arent good.

The Rangers make them look good though.

Like the stones by the new guy, but the last GDT was Machinehead and resulted in a win. Call me crazy, but I like to stick with what works.

Only way Zucc sees just 7 minutes is if he gets hurt, or we spend half the game on the penalty kill.

Yes, because we all know that fourm posters have such a dynamic effect on the outcome of a game... No wonder why we had a 54 year Cup drought. We didn't have HF Boards!

No way. He was on the line that created the game winning goal. Are you out of your mind?

He's gonna be on our first line tonight.

Zucc-Step-Nash
Clowe-Richards-Cally
Dorsett-Brassard-Hags
Pyatt-Boyle-Asham

Look for Boyle to be double shifted though. 4 line C and winger on another line if someone is underperforming. He'll get close to 17 minutes tonight, if not more.

I predict a very large scrap tonight. Bodies flying. Low scoring game.

Superstitions are funny, I can understand rituals I used to have one, guess what happened when I quit doing it... The Rangers win and lose regardless of what we do if superstitions worked we'd go 82-0.

If I was going to play that angle on this one I'd have to say I like the idea of a new poster doing the GDT, maybe he is like that young player who steps it up for the PO's?

My dad has to be the most superstitious person I know, he didn't like it when I told him one of my HS teachers told me superstitions show a lack of education. Which I don't believe, because HS teachers don't know ****.

Anyway he has all the standard superstitions and then there are things like not wearing yellow because it's unlucky, not putting your hat on the bed (which is the only one I picked up), and not closing a knife someone handed to you open. Seriously it's ridiculous. Gives me an idea for tonight. Might put all my hats on my bed.

Im not too crazy with them, but I do have some superstitions for sure, especially when a team I follow is in the playoffs. I think most of my superstitions come from playing sports my whole life. Tape my stick the same way every time. Touch the sign before leaving the locker room etc etc.

The problem with Zucc is that the Caps are going after him, they keep messing with him behind the play. Looks like they're trying to put the hobbit out of action. But he can always run and hide behind Nash

Superstitions are important to some and it does have relevance. I think energy can help the outcome of a game to an extent. Call me crazy.

Yeah they are a breeding ground for that kind of stuff, think it's more of a ritual to get you mentally focused than anything. Except for guys like Roy who wouldn't skate on the blue line lol. I had several things of my own but nothing to extreme.

I tend to agree with this, I try and be positive for the most part. Maybe we could test that out in this GDT... Instead of calling the game over at 0-0 maybe we can look at it as an opportunity to win... Oh wait who am I kidding.

Speaking of superstitions, I think it's far more likely that Pyatt scores than Dorsett, your thoughts?

Hopefully Torts will let the players think occasional thoughts for themselves so that we are maybe 98% predictable instead of 100% predictable.

We need to get back to the more open style we played in the reg. season where we were capable of dominating our opposition at ES. No more 5v5 PPs for the Caps!

If we play like in game 2 & 3 we are done.

LGR! Make me believe in this team again!

New member makes the GDT. Bold move. If the Rangers lose you better be ready to delete your account. We don't take kindly to new GDT makers around these parts.

It's closer than the Asham/Boyle discussion because we clearly had a sniper in that debate. These two put up similar shot totals but Pyatt has a better shooting percentage. Smart money is on Dorsett who isn't used as much and doesn't play with the same caliber talent as Pyatt in a lot of situations.
