I do.

Fourth one counts just as much as much as the other three.

G: 3-1 roadie. Back to Buffalo for 7 of 8. Miller and the defense played well enough to win.

B: Offensive output. Brad Boyes gets 9 minutes of ice time. (actually, maybe that should go under the good category?)

U: I could have got my first career NHL win if Tampa suited me up and stuck me in goal.

Overall, they didn't play a bad game....at least before the Leino giveaway made it 2-0. After that point it got a little bit ugly.

Yeah, I know. I can live with a loss, because they're going to lose some, but that doesn't mean I'm fine with them losing any game.

I just wouldn't say "who cares?" Personally, I'd want them to win all 82 if they could.

Good: Sekera
Bad: Leino

I was paying close attention to a few players, and these two really stood out to me.

clearly this loss is on Miller. Letting in 2 goals, what the hell is wrong with him.

Only watched the last 2 periods.

-Adam had a rough game
-Gragnani was driving me crazy with some of the (drop) passes on the PP
-Leino was terrible, not only for the bad clear that resulted in St. Louis' goal
-They tried to be too cute on too many occasions
-Alot of blocked, missed and fanned shots
-Kaleta and Gaustad were noticeable in a good way, mostly because they were simply dumping and chasing
-Liked Sekera's play
-Liked Stafford's play
-Weber needs to play over Gragnani

Like you previously mentioned I would like to see him paired with Sekera who I think compliments his game, unlike Leo who is basically a poor man's Ehrhoff to begin with.

Sure thing. Sign up and make something. The thread is on page one.

My only good was having an evening with my family rather than spending nearly two hours in the car to go see this game.

You give yourself too much credit for something. Feel free to sign up for a GDT.

Huh?

I was speaking only for myself. No one else.

I don't care if a GDT is minimalist or not.

I think (my opinion) it's silly superstitious to think it affects an outcome.

I put no one in particular down who think otherwise.

My comments were a light hearted joke not to be taken heavily as insulting.

Sorry if I came across that way chain, not the intention. Hope that clears it up.

yes looked like he hurt his ankle, he left then came back tested it on the ice and went back into the dressing room.. My guess he misses a game or two at the most.. Appeared to be a minor ankle sprain IMO...
