NEWS & NOTES





QUOTES TO NOTE

I put pressure on myself, either way, there’s tons of pressure on me to produce. I think it’s overshadowed by what we’re worried about right now.
We’re worried about winning games and getting two points and kind of ending this losing streak. It’ll be fun but I think I only know one guy, maybe two or three guys that I played with.
It’s a totally different team. More importantly we have to win games here. We’re worried about the Rangers and not other things.
- Rick Nash


It was not the start we were looking for obviously. Still, after two periods it’s just a 1 goal game. We tried to fight back in the 2nd, then in the third, that 3rd goal killed us.
The only thing I know right now is it can only go up. Right now it’s extremely tough mentally and you try to be positive. You have to, there’s so many games left. It’s just a real tough stretch right now.
It’s hard for us to get points and you just have to work through it, stick together and be positive. It’s definitely a test for all of us.
- Henrik Lundqvist


I’ve got an idea of how I’d like it to play but I’m not quite sure we have the personnel to play the type of game I’d like to play, which is more of an offensive-oriented.
It should be obvious to everyone right now we have a challenge scoring goals. I’m not saying we won’t get there but I’m saying right now it is a big challenge for us.
We’ve got to be a little bit more defensive oriented for right now.
- Alain Vigneault

Just thought about this, could this be the year Lundqvist doesn't get 30 wins? I dont count last year, personally.

Thanks as always Loffen.

Hopefully Wrath can at least add some excitement to this boring, lethargic team.

The jokes really do write themselves, don't they?

Is there video somewhere of Brassard actually falling on his butt? If not, teammates, friends, and relatives won't let him hear the end of it.

I'm not one for fighting usually, but I want to see some **** tonight.

Dubi wrecks Pyatt, and then the Undertaker does his thing. Please.

Where did you read this? Are you sure it didn't say, "Brassard sitting this one out tonight because he's ********."?

I don't know. That oven mit is moving awfully fast for them. If they aim for the carpet brush they might just have a chance to bank one off the pumpkin but that will take some skill and AV doesn't have that kind of personnel right now.

Ahhhh fragile mentality, lack of heart, talent and work ethic vs. former teammates.

This should be fun.

Pyatt – Richards – Nash
Hagelin – Boyle – Dorsett
Pouliot – D. Moore – Asham

Expecting another lifeless effort. And another loss.

Team hasn't shown me anything to convince me otherwise.

I think Dubinsky is going to be determined to show off. And he has been playing some solid hockey recently.

Lundqvist will let up one goal. The team will feel dejected and give up. And that will be game.

Oh, BTW, we are now officially tied with the Panthers for 29th in the league in goal scoring, while facing mostly back ups and third string goaltenders!

No wonder the Jackets are putting a beer can in net, we couldn't score on that thing anyway.
