I think the point would be to chant that "Atlanta's better"?

Followed by the bench looking at eachother in confusion saying "When...in 2007? Sure...I guess"

Besides, they still call the war of 1812 a "draw"

Well, that's just going to be confusing. I heard there were some Thrashers fans that were going to do one round of the "Let's Go Thrashers" chant at the beginning of the game to let the NHL know we are still here. There will also be Thrashers fans pulling for the Peds as well as Thrashers fans pulling for the Jets in the crowd, so it could be mistaken as cheering for the Jets players. If they want to taunt the Jets players/fans, they should probably stick with the "Phoenix is better" chant, though I'm not sure why anyone but Capitals fans want to "avenge" Ovi in the first place.

Edit: Being super-busy at work can have a similar effect on posting as heavy drug use... Sorry, thinking about the wrong game.

Pretty simple. Win and we still have a shot at the playoffs, albeit a longshot. Lose and we are pretty much done for this year.

Regardless of how Pavs plays tonight, I really hope Mason starts tomorrow. Pavs need the rest.

Win or lose tonight, this season has been a blast!

I'd rather watch the Jets than another City Of Glendale council meeting.

The Jets need to win in regulation or this playoff drive is finished. They are overdue for a road victory. Tonight is the night! GO JETS GO!!!

Not sure about the chant itself, but it would be great to hear more friendly rivalry coming from opposing arenas.

I've spent months trying to block out from my memory how mind-numbing and frustrating that whole process was. But in the end...

Everything went better than expected!

Oops, so excited for the game on Saturday that I forgot this was about tonight's game!

Caps fans were nothing if not disrespectful to Thrashers fans anyway, so they aren't going to worry about that.

The question is, will everyone on the main boards call them out as "classless" or "ignorant" as Winnipeg always seems to? Or will it just be another opportunity for people who hate Winnipeg to take another shot at us and say we deserve it?

Until other teams fanbases can compete with the noise in the MTS centre, the only thing they CAN do is complain about us on message boards.

We are fighting for our playoff lives, and our fans are rowdier and having more fun than anyone in Pittsburgh, Boston or New York EVER did.

I would love nothing more than if the Caps fans came up with some witty response for our "Crosby's better" troll job but they have to keep in mind that trying to compete with our fan base in this category is like Winnipeg playing open pond hockey with the Pens

all good clean fun and they could and should be able to do some really cool chant if their team it putting the boots to us tonight and all but eliminating us from the playoffs......I could just imagine how much fun our crowd would have with Ovi if the roles were reversed..............so come on you K street lobbyist stiffs, give us your best shot

Canucks fan here. Pretty sure about 95% of Vancouver fans list the Jets as their second favourite team. Everyone is hoping you guys get in so just came by to say good luck tonight. I wish the game was nationally broadcast.

There are four games left in the desert. That's all, folks. You read it here first.

Disclaimer: In the event they make the playoffs (which I don't think will happen), a few more games in the desert.

Doan, learn French if you want to play another season or two. Shane, check out www.rosettastone.com - you can afford it.

Doan is a UFA, regardless if the team stays in Phoenix or not I believe at age 36 this is Doan's last season in Phoenix.

You may be right, I may be crazy, but I've got a feeling he wants more $$$$$$ before he packs it in. I guess we'll see....
