Well my posts over there have now disappeared and so is that pic. I reported the pic to a mod so I guess that's why it's been taken down.

On topic, if the Preds come out with the same forechecking and hitting and intensity tonight, I believe we even things up. Let's do it!

almost like posting a 9/11 towers pic on a Rangers GDT thread, how ridiculous.

more or less. The GDT for game 3 showed a trailer park. I went on a rant and got boo'd off pretty quick. That's fine. This wasn't. I'm glad someone did the right thing and deleted it before everyone on here could see it too. I just happen to work 3rd shift and caught it quickly in the early morning hours.

I'm so demoralized as a Blues fan, I've already felt myself start shifting into band-wagon mode. I think it was the Rad/Kos suspensions that really won my respect. When I read about that I thought, "I guarantee they're going to win Game 3." The rules are the rules. You can't treat star players differently no matter the circumstances. Its on the players to be responsible for their own choices.

If the Blues can't pull off a miracle (and there's been nothing to indicate they can even win a game vs the Kings) I hope the Preds make it to the SCF. Your fans deserve it.

Wait, they had a picture of the flooding in their GDT?

No. Do not. If it is removed from the boards and someone posts a screenshot of whatever was removed it's a violation of the rules.

Guys, one poster over there did something stupid. We all know that. I realize people are upset, but the generalizations of a fan base and of a city, and the jabs at relocation, need to end.

Watching the defensive teams like St-Louis get mauled these playoffs and teams with great goaltending and extra firepower going forward, it's a question of time Nashville hits a roadblock. Classic Preds hockey has never gotten them beyond this point.

3. Is later in this series the best time to insert them? Odds are, Rads-Kost are inserted back in the lineup these series. It's either now or after a loss. If it's after a loss, they're inserted in a do-or-die game (likely on the road).
You have hit it on the head. Conventional wisdom says you don't break up the lineup after a win. Your point about the limitations of pure Pred Hockey is also right on. We made deadline moves to become multidimensional without losing our identity. We rolled the Wings, played a very good Game 1 but lost in OT, then laid an egg. We played a great Game 3, aided heavily by 2 fluke goals which allowed us, for the first time in the series, the luxury of playing with a lead. We should not have to sacrifice talent for "Pred Hockey". We should expect both, which is our ticket to the Cup. I think if Rads and AK46 got in tonite, they'd be back-checking SOBs along with a drive to prove they're better than they showed in Game 2.

I support Barry because he knows things we don't know. Maybe he's convinced the Russian Duo haven't quite learned their lesson yet. Maybe the experience of being a healthy scratch (probably first time in Rads life) will shame him into playing Pred Hockey with skill.

That said, I'm afraid we're skating with ankle weights tonite. We're deliberately sub-optimizing the team, assuming our two most skilled players either can not or will not play hard and play defense. If that's true, then I guess we'll have to settle for Preds circa 2011. Maybe against this team, it gives us a better chance to win. It's just a dang shame.

Exhibit A for "ankle weights": Brandon Yip on your first PP unit. Wow. Makes you yearn for the days of Denis Arkipov.

Watch out...saying things like "They seem arrogant" could be considered "flaming" with the lame rules they have around here. Checked in today and had like 5 warnings in the past month.

Who's going tonight? I got glass in 109 and will sporting the below sign and my John Rocker Braves shirt and a mohawk. Let's kick some Coyote Ass. Whoops....

Hey guys,

Leafs fan coming in peace! Just wanted to say I love watching the Preds brand of hockey and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction!

I'll be stuck at work tonight and was wondering if there is a specific website that streams Predators games, or has been streaming this series? Im desperate to watch this game on my iphone to see how the team handles Radulov and Kostitsyn sitting another game!

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Edit: Sorry, just noticed the Game Day thread now!

lol its okay... ive got my fair share. I think we all do. whats funny is when you get an infraction from a global moderator and you look at their post history and they are using words 10 times as worse as what you were reprimanded for. can't even post around here without doing something wrong..

ill be in section 328 ! alone... ha how much did you pay for on the glass and where?

Did anyone else know the hilarious quote from Tippet during the presser?

"If you take the two goals they had away..it's a close game"

Really Tippet? How astute.

I think it is a mistake to bench them. I think we have too much depth to dress inferior players. With that said, we should still win this game, but benching two of the top 6 offensive players on this team is a bad plan. We lost game 2 because our defense was crap. We lost game 1 because Mike Smith played amazing. I think Trotz is forgetting the dominance of the last 40 minutes of game 1, focusing on the lapses in game 2, and then latching on to his more comfortable grind it out and grit your teeth for the win game 3. I am not faulting Trotz. I understand the rational. I just think it is a mistake.

Blow it up on Sunday. It's such a small percentage that we'll come back, might as well try something totally new.

Hornq-Legwand-Wilson

This is one of those times I wish Trotz would be more like Tortorella. He should get a fine for his post game comments. Say that it's tough to win when you have to play against the Refs. That's what legendary coaches like Phil Jackson would do.

Then he should be fired. He should be fired for his playoff record (2-7 in playoff series).

If he has no spine to call a spade a spade, then that's it for me.

Preds now have to win 3 in a row...

I think the best we can root for now is that there isn't another lockout and they can get back at it in October.
