I was looking at the 9:59 to 4:41 TOA and the three posts I hit--but those are the breaks sometimes. I got a pair of softies in Game 2, so I said it balanced out over the two games.

Let's just agree to disagree. I stand by my count--acknowledging that some were slap shots instead of wrist shots. Maybe that makes a difference.

I guess, I prefer to give it to the team who had more shots. I had more shots in game 2 then you had in both games combined. I mean nothing against you, but circling the puck in my zone didn't really get you anywhere.

Edit: As showed in game 2 when my TOA was higher but you won...softies...

And nothing to do with this, but playing with a guy with 76 speed is horrible. It's like playing with your EASHL pro when first created.
we have already talked about this in this thread. Just because it doesn't work doesnt mean it isn't frowned upon so your argument is not very good.... see: price

If you try to stockey me you will lose. just sayin lol

TOA was basically even in game 2, no? I believe we both had more than 5:00 and less than 6:00. I believe the shots in game one were fairly close--22 to 17 or 19 or something?--but I didn't note them.

I don't dispute you had more shots. If you take out the 22 combined shots-for-rebounds, however, the numbers get a bit closer, no? If you add in the 5 posts I hit over the two games, the numbers get closer, right?

But you're right. You can't score if you don't shoot, so in that sense, I guess you had the greater number of scoring chances. I tend to think that the quality of the chance matters too, and that 10 "good" shots from the slot / one-timers are perhaps as good as 20 shots, when half are essentially just with the purpose of getting a rebound. Seems we just see it differently. Like I said before, agree to disagree.

In the end, we split the two games (which seemed fair to me). I scored 5 goals, you scored 4 goals. It probably doesn't make sense for either to make a strong claim on the superiority of their playing style.

Ottawa isnt the only team that does that...i know of 2 others, it is quite annoying for someone to just come into ur zone all game and just throw a low wrister/slapper causing rebounds...ive had it cause a goal against sometimes but more often than not its true it doesnt go in (still annoying)

Didn't know what it was. And actually I can't. The only time I ever scored like that was when I played you.

The sight of Mats Zucarello running and hiding from Zdeno Chara through the last 5 mintues of that game is something I'll remember.

P.S. My team needs Nash back, and needs Mike Richards now. The Zucarello-Stepan-Callahan thing isn't going to cut it against the Horton, Lucic, Charas of the world.

I was pissed at the flubbers Rask let in. Only way to cure that is try and kill people 35 hits by BOS that game. The big boys were trying to send a message. What that message was, i'm not even sure lol

My team looked really, really small out there.

I put the 4th line out, then the 3rd. Then Gaborik and Richards jumped on the ice and I was actively skating away from the play.

Vermette. Who's at least putting up points, but nowhere near his top 5 scoring leader pace he was on last season.

no problem, sorry to play like a chump at the end, just a bit frustrated.

I love how this game says a player is 'injured for 2 games' and then they're out for like 6 for no reason (Vinny and PK, two of my most important players) and it just so happens to be when I have games versus division rivals...
