Considering that CBC didn't cover Van or Ott, the broadcast team may be average instead of dire.

Totally agree. Every time a player has been irrationally hated on (Buff, Wheeler, Kane, Ladd and most recently Enstrom), they each come back to have huge games.

If we win tonight's game in regulation, we'll be only 1 point behind Washington for 1st in the SE.

Then I'll be like

He might get half his calls wrong during the PBP, but at least he's interesting to listen to.

Burmi should have spent the entire year playing with Antropov and another winger (Ladd, Fehr, Miettinen, whoever). He might not put up as many points as Wellwood this year, but he would have taken huge steps in his development and be a better player for us in the future.
I disagree. You earn your time on the top-two lines. That is all.

The goal of the game is to win. The staff puts out the best lines they can every game, in order to try to win every game. You reward your players good play with more play. If you end up on the 3rd or 4th line you play your role, help the team how you can and you like it. The team comes first, not the development of any single player. And it's not as if he's getting sub 10 minutes per game. Burmi is getting 16+ minutes on average a game.

And I'm tired of people calling our players 'scrubs'. Tired of hearing it from Cena and anyone else. Who are the scrubs?

Related to the Burmistrov discussion here and his defensive play, I noticed that he nor Antropov had any time on the penalty kill against Buffalo. I haven't noticed them doing anything glaring wrong to deserve this... Just a coaches decision I suppose.?..?

It was a meme last year on the Thrash boards. JC ran with the Scrub term so much we all had avatars (from atlthrasher344) of every player dressed in scrubs with their scrub name.

So let's see what team will show up tonight. Thrashers or Jets. I'm hoping Jets. They need to take advantage of Florida's back to back. But no 3 pt night.

Random, but anybody see that sign a few games back? Had to do with Kane not paying for his restaurant bills. Don't love knowing that one of our better players is a ******.

What I kind of really meant is, 'Who exactly do you think is so bad on this team that you're calling them a scrub?' In slang it's an insult. I like to think that none of our players deserve that label.
