I've been quiet and haven't said a peep about it to this point, but CBJ is terrible yet again. They absolutely have to get rid of Gallant. Once again, it's the system, not the players, that is keeping them from achieiving anything.

Agreed. They have a core of players that is probably better than what we had in 03-04, when we were mostly steady throughout the year(although we did almost collapse out of the playoffs in march, as usual) though minus Vokoun. From watching their games, their system stinks. Gallant juggles lines even worse than Trotz, and without the chemistry that we seem to find. Passing is bad, breakouts are bad...the personnel is there, the system isn't. I know we have our "rivalry" with the Jackets, but honestly, I pity them more than hate them. Every year seems like it will be better, and it never is. Now, with that said, it's still early...and they went on a pretty hot run last year, and who knows what can happen...but without a major overhaul in the front office(i'm talking of a Philadelphian proportion), I can't see this getting better. Their run last year was parallel to Nash's healthy return to the lineup. This year, he's been there...but can't seem to get going.

Now, next question...

what the hell is going on in Calgary? They do not look like the same team as years passed...I'm thinking they went in the wrong direction to correct their scoring problems, lost the character guys(Gelinas, Conroy, Lydman, etc) that grinded out wins, and became too soft. Sutter going strictly GM could have something to do with it, as well.

Apparently Iginla is pretty unhappy about decisions that Calgary has made:

I expect Sutter to get back behind the bench about any day now....

The Calgary Flames do not have a player who truly complements Jarome Iginla. They lack a truly gifted playmaker to set Iginla up. He's all alone in trying to carry the team offensively. If Iginla really does start complaining, there will be changes made.

Anyhoo...

to be fair, i think they played pretty well, coming from behind and all...and if kipper was in, they would likely have won that game.

beat me to it, they just got screwed. mcgeough blows another one. the oilers one a faceoff with the goalie pulled, smyth shot, turco gave up a juicy rebound which came right to hemsky, who banged it into an empty net...absolutely no infraction, but mcgeough immediately waves it off, citing a phantom handpass.


that goal would have tied the game, after the oilers scored to make it 3-2 with a minute left

1) Mcgeough screws the Oilers, 2) he admits he made the wrong call (of course he's done it numerous times before disallowing goals and such 3) next course of action ... **** CANNING THIS SON OF A *****!

I want to see footage of it, doubt it'll be on NHL's site. Wonder if TSN will show it.

It was bad... worst call in the past 5 years. Cost us atleast 1.. probably 2 points. The first Dallas goal was BS as well.

That ref is so damned talented. I was amazed he wasn't one of those canned in the offseason. Maybe he won't be so lucky next time around.

I agree. Also it seems to me that this team has a one way hockey chemistry that seems to rub off on anyone who joins their ranks. Take the examples of Tanguay, Huselius, Amonte and Friesen.
These were players who came to the orgainization to boost scoring.
I know a lot of teams would have wanted to aquire them for the same reason. Yet their production has been inhibited for some reason.

Physical, "dig-dog" style hockey is important and effective but its price seems to be too high if it's hurting their ability to compete in the new NHL. In other words, relying on too much of one thing can be costly.

there's a video of the edmonton dallas finish here:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=261103006

Turco said he reacted to the whistle going off though before the goal was scored.

Ofcourse.. who want's to admit they get beat twice in the final 1:30 of a game. Turco never stopped moving.

that was excessive, i think at worst it should have been a 5, but no game misconduct.

But...bad for Sharks, good for us.

Go Pens!
