I hope Manny's newborn is alright. We don't know why he's taking a personal day, but there's easy bet on what its related to...

This is perhaps the most dead i've seen the 2 GDT of a matchup the day leading up to the game.

Both are at 51-52 posts at around NOON before the game..

lockout effect?

That would require us to only take 1 minor penalty.

Yikes. This isn't sounding like a demotion or anything. Hopefully all is well in Manny's family.

My guess is he has either been waived or traded..

Someone had to go since Spurgeon will likely come back tonight.

Why is every one soooo down on Ebbett? He was a good replacement last year. Dose it steam from earlier this year he was picked over Schroeder? I think our lineup looks weak if he's our 2nd/3rd line center, but as a 13th forward he's all good.

I trust Ebbett with a fill in 4C role. Nothing more.

Tune into Judge Judy this afternoon. I bet some Canucks HFers will be the defendants.

Exactly. Ebbett as 2C, plus PP and PK specialist, is terrible (which is how he was being used). Ebbett as a temporary 4C in a pinch against an offensively anaemic team I can handle.

Rookie goalie starting for the Wild?
We're getting zero goals this game, guaranteed.

I do not believe in AV, he is going to use Ebbett in every situation, just like he used Rome in almost every situation despite having better options!

Because of how he is used. If he's a 4th line winger playing 5 mins/game then whatever...

Dude is put out to take key faceoffs all over... gets put out on multiple PKs against the likes of Thornton and Marleau...

Guy can't PK, can't play on the PP and is questionable as a center @ the NHL level. He's slow, barely has a shot, can't win board battles, is small, can't fight... I could keep going here...

When was that? The season we won the Presidents trophy and went to game 7 of the finals? Hard to argue with those results.

It doesn't change the fact we have won a meaningless trophy and haven't won anything important that year.

Apparently there is a group of the Whitecaps Southsiders going to the game tonight. It'll be interesting to see if they can liven up the crowd.

We haven't won anything important in 41 years. That season was better than any other.

I've suggested we need some chants to get the crowd going. Hopefully they come up with something good.
