If the ice is as bad as it was in Los Angeles, with the puck hopping the whole game and the ice slushy, we should recall the biggest players in our system and just have them push their way forward and kick at the puck.

That L.A. game was painful to watch. L.A. is loaded with talented players, but they looked almost as awful as the Jackets playing on that ice.

Oops.
Wasn't the concensus Commodore for Souray?

Yes, it was big salary versus big salary in the trade-off. To make the kick in the balls even worse. Souray's buyout is only on the books for this season at 1.5 Mil while we still have Commodore's buyout on the books for another 2 years at 1.141 mil.

It was a cap hit of 5.4 for Souray versus Commodore at 3.75. It would have been a risk and that amount of salary taken on would have probably led to other moves after that being or not being made. On the flip side, anyone could have performed better than Commodore after the playoff season.

I don't know whether to watch this game or a rerun of Doomsday Preppers.

Thanks. Oilers wanted Souray gone as bad as Jackets wanted 22 gone.

Wish I could watch this, haven't seen the Ducks play yet this year. But I'll follow at work closely.

They've looked that bad in other games, too; their Chicago game yesterday was simply absurd.

I have been enjoying it far more than I really ought.

Either will adequately prepare you for this message board's topics of discussion tomorrow.

If any of our defensemen play poorly tonight, make sure to praise them and not hold them responsible. By holding them accountable, or calling them out publicly, may make one look like they want that player to have higher standards, and by doing so will upset a member of our community. I guess forwards are fair game.

Time to watch some Jackets! To be honest, I don't have much knowledge of the current roster as the lockout made me lose interest for NHL for a while, but now with a broken foot and a cast on it due to an awkward fall in a checking situation while playing hockey... Well, let's just say that I've had some extra time to get my interest back

I would like to see one prospect Duck in a Jackets jersey, D Sami Vatanen. He's in a pretty tough situation with Anaheim's defence being as good as they are, he got his first 3 NHL games, played good games but was sent down again. Kekalainen should know exactly what kind of a player Vatanen is, he pretty much dominated Finnish league for couple of years before this season as he moved to NA, makes great passes, is really fast on skates and doesn't shy making plays himself. Well, here's to hoping...

Good luck Jackets for the game!

A bit late I know but can I make a request that Skraut use this song in his next Jackets video?



Should be pretty familiar.

How many Nikitin turnovers will lead to immediate goals by the opposition?

Less than the number of stupid penalties by Dorsett and Erixon.

Speaking of which... I understand why the team doesn't get penalized in their +/- when they got scored on while shorthanded, but why doesn't the guy who took the penalty get a -5 for putting the team shorthanded?

I have double the dosage of beer ready tonight so I can get to sleep tonight... That lineup looks like something out of a hockey horror movie (We should make one and call it the "Boo Jackets". It's a lame title, but I feel that is totally fitting of the material) so I'm prepared for the team to get blown up and be the restart of their struggling offensive guns.

Are headphones permitted? It's possible to get the radio stream as well.

Yes, because we want MacKinnon/Jones/Drouin!

Goodluck back to you. Although you probably won't need it.
