The commercial music on gamecenter is so much worse than the commercials ever were.

I wonder if people would shut up about Boudreau if the team went 98-0. Probably not.

Likely to be a franchise record start looking like SC contenders...

They would, but only if the Bears and the Stringrays also have flawless seasons. Also GMGM should get fired unless he trades whichever player performed relatively poorly last game.

Some people deal with realities rather than hypotheticals. Much less stupid that way.

Note to sarge... Don't attempt to skate out of zone in a one goal game. Matter of fact. Make that never.

Also getting dominated by the sens is kinda sad.

Which could lead to some rather critical analysis.

Does disappointment lower expectations for most of you? So that way you expect less. So when the same things happens its now the norm and not a disappointment.

Problem with your presumption is that Ovie doesnt have nearly as much influence on this team's well being as say perhaps the coach?

Downie meltdown just occurred against the Panthers. Got in a brawl with one Panther who towered over him, at the conclusion of that fight he tries to engage Jovo. Dat guy's crazy. Just surprised Bradley didn't leave the bench and go after Downie.

This team is boring.

No need for a scoreboard...just watch the game and their level of interest will let you know.

What sense does that make? We all know you cant fire the team. You cant trade the whole team.

BB said it himself "Sometimes you have to pull the goalie. Its not always the goalies fault. You have to do it to give the team a wake up call"

How do we give this team a wake up call? We have seen no progress in the post season.

Do we just lower our expectations? And be ok with the same thing happening each season?

That and he's one of the best playoff performers in the league.

A more apt on-ice comparison would be Jeff Schultz.

If ovi continues to execute and make decisions as he has these last four games, I'd rather play without him.

I do, actually, but where is the influence line then? We've obviously gathered that every coach who doesn't win a Cup within four years will never win one. What about goalies? Four years without a cup equals suck?

Apparently captains and and franchise players are not influential enough.
