Call me crazy, but I'm actually looking forward to this one. In my opinion, how the team reacts tonight in response to the blowout on Monday will set the tone for the remainder of the season. Vogs mentioned that the team had a meeting and settled on 17-9 as the goal for the final 26 games in order to clinch a payoff berth, 16-7 from here out or bust!
As a side-note, these .gif's are brilliant and absolutely killing my pageload time. So you know, keep up the good work .

Hunter on why Hamrlik out: "You want him to be a defensive defenseman. He's giving up too many chances, so he's out of the lineup."
I started to tally up plus / minus ratings under Hunter only the other day. I didn't tally for every player but Hamr led for those tallied which included Carlson, Alzner and Orlov. I'll have to finish that. Including the Carolina game and since Hunter started Hamrlik has had only three games where he was a minus player.
I can understand Hunter not wanting offensive contributions because lately the team is scoring in bunches. <sarcasm> He was brought in to be Green's D partner. Green is back and Hamrlik is benched.
The reasoning doesn't make sense unless he's getting traded.
Don't say anything truthful about personnel moves, ever.
Position of strength is LD. Maybe we are showcasing Sarge or Erskine to see if a dumbass GM wants to overpay for them. All the GM's out there have seen a healthy dose of Hammer. He could probably use a game off or may be sore. Do you think they would tell you if Hammer was injured?
