As long as you cheer hard for TB it's no problem. Free tickets to an NHL game... you take that every time!

And I am happy to see you aren't wearing your Isles gear. I actually call out rags fans at the Coliseum wearing rags gear ON THE SAME NIGHT the rags are playing elsewhere. It makes me laugh how these so called "fans" are at an Isles game while their team is playing at the same time. You get a pass because these are free tickets. I'm sure that isn't the case for all those fake rags fans I see every game at the coliseum.

Everyone here that is saying that he will fight and thats it. Boulton can bring a lot more to the game then just fighting. If he is given a chance to play. When he was with Atlanta and played a regular shift two years ago he was the last guy in the NHL to register a minus in a game and that didnt come until January. He doesnt get a lot of goal but he can set them up and chips in every once in a while. Same thing last year in Jersey didnt play a regular shift or see the ice much. Doesnt matter who the player is if you sit him a lot during the game and when he does get a shift he isnt going to have his legs. If this coach rolled 4 lines i bet we would be winning more games. JT has got to be getting burnt out. Lower JT's ice time a bit and when you need that important goal he will have more gas in the tank instead of putting him out there every shift. Okposo was regarded by alot of people here as a good hockey player when i first joined this site. He has one good end to last year. He hasnt shown me or half the people on this board that he should be playing. Boulton or Ullstrom arent playing and one if not both should be in over him. Okposo has done nothing this year and honestly boulton and ullstrom give it more heart when they play.

There were a few Ranger fans at the Isles home opener and they really got hit with verbal abuses, including me and my friends giving them the ol' ******* chant.

I hate when people do that.. I don't know why it irritates me but it does! No reason to wear rangers gear at the coliseum if they aren't playing! If I goto MSG ill wear either an old school shirt whalers/nordiques/thrashers or try and find a shirt of who ever they're playing.

but then he wouldn't have access to all the great coaching and practices.

I'm with you. Ullstrom hasn't been great of late, after a nice start, but there's no point having him sit around. He would really help BP, who hasn't won in a long time, and the extra minutes will help his game and confidence. I'd waive Reasoner and play Ullstrom, because I have NO IDEA what Reasoner brings to this team that Ullstrom cannot.

you'll see a fun game. Especially if Stammer scores a few goals and Torts loses it on the bench. Good times.

----- TONIGHT:
Nabby in goal

Moulson-JT-Boyes
Bailey - Nielsen - Okposo
Grabner - Cizikas - McDonald
Boulton- Reasoner- Martin

Hamonic - MacDonald
Visnovsky - Hickey
Streit - Finley

OUT: Martinek - Carkner (inj) - Ullstrom - Aucoin - Joensuu (inj)

Let's hope for great goaltending, power plays and maybe Grabs buries one of his three breakaways!

If anyone watched the Leafs/Habs last night and/or the last Leaf/Habs game knows why Boulton and Finley are in tonight. I would predict at least 3 fights tonight. Hopefully one of them is anyone pounding on Phaneuf. (Even if it's Capuano)

I'm not too confident against the Islanders...but the games are always fun to watch, end to end action.

I just hate the fact that Moulson or Tavares always score against the Leafs and it's always a game tying or go ahead goal.

Good luck!

I am now sure we will lose. Between letting in 50% of the first shots on net. Letting every rookie score their first career hat trick against us. Our worse home shutout ever. Worst February ever sounds like it fits.

Another excellent GDT Truman. I think the GDT's are too good for this team.

this may be the best line grabs has been on for a while. exchange mcdonald and ullstrom and i really like this line.
