watched the game and as each pass missed it`s mark, as each softie went in, as some players looked rusty and, let`s not be kind, out of shape (lookin at you Looch) I knew, just knew that had I come on here last night, I woulda pulled the few remaining hairs out which is why I didn`t.
The over reaction/semi-panic is.....well.....over reaction and panic unnecessary
Not to say I enjoy watching Looch outta game condition, weak goals or sloppy play however, to say I didn`t expect it would be a lie. Have been reading/watching reports from other camps, and it`s been the exact same, haven`t heard/read one report claiming their team is in mid season form.
Things could always be worse, how ya think our friends in Vancouver feel with now Booth out 4-6 weeks, that`s two thirds of their second line gonzo
This gave me a good chuckle. Thanks. I needed it first thing in the morning.
As for the topic at hand, Tuukka will be fine. He's not the only one that looked like crap out there. Heck, maybe he didn't want to go all out. Maybe he didn't feel up to the task in a scrimmage. Maybe he needed this to adjust to the NHL ice. Goalies say the angles are different than on the international ice. This was a glorified practice. It's just what he needed; to see some pucks. The sky is not falling.
I'm actually a little surprised it took this long to open a thread like this. I expected to see it immediately after the scrimmage.
