havent been able to post much in a few days but I wanted to mention this....

thought 55 played a good game against the Sens.....much more assertive, less passive in terms on his general play...was good to see

I've felt the same way, but he seems to get exposed in a speedy up-tempo type of game.

I don't think the league has the balls to suspend a player like Ovechkin or Pronger for more than a game or two. We'll see.

Ive often said, and others as well.....that one of the things about 55 was, top end. We pointed to things like he wasnt going to all of a sudden get a mean streak or use his size to a real advantage, he wasnt going to become offensively skilled....that sort of stuff. Basically he is what he is......one thing that hasnt been mentioned (or at least I havent seen it specifically) is maturity, confidence, and becoming really smart. Not saying he is/isnt any of those but if the guy can just minimize his weaknesses by being confident and smart....well, its something

two different players obviously but Murphy learned that and became of HoFer after being woop'd out of DC

Has anyone seen the honey badger dont care video? If not here it is:

(obscene language warning)

Anyway I think it would be hysterical if someone made a video of semin doing what he does while maintaining the "dont care theme. Keeping a similar voice would be hysterical too. Maybe its just my imagination but i think that would be great...too bad I dont have the skills to do it.

I thought Sarge had two pretty strong games for him in the last 2.

I think Semin's stats talk for themselves. He's got great +/- every year and he can score and pass. In the NHL not everyone can or should be a blue-collar boy-scout or a do-it-all utility player.

Still no Neuvy? Did Neuvy actually leave town, and we let Varly stay?

I hope you are right, but with all the changes and all that would be an expansive lesson.

stay out of the box (esp SEMIN!)
run bradley every chance they get (no dumb penalties, keep it legal)
remember how bad theodore is (Hes not starting I don't think, so light up the new guy in his first NHL appearance.)
win
I would add one more small thing. STEP IT UP ON THE PP! Its been ok, but nothing to write home about. That needs to click more. Of course this is all given that the zebra's actually give us chances on the PP.


GAME ON!
