Because they probably got Iginla's paper work ready Wednesday at around lunch time when they knew he was going to Pittsburgh.

I get the feeling you guys are in a slump... All this negativity... It's unnecessary tonight.

FEAR NOT! For rolling into Buffalo is a slump buster. Your team will proceed to dominate us, and even if you do get behind... FEAR NOT! This Buffalo Sabres team has no ability of protecting or holding leads, NO LEAD IS SAFE. I predict a 4-3 SO win for the B's, the Sabres troll their fans by getting a point that does not assist the tank.

Vanek's out? Well that's 3 less goals by Buffalo we have to worry about. Although, Stafford hasn't scored a hatty on us yet

Good news for Buffalo is the Bruins can't hold a lead either and they have a nasty habit of spotting all their opponents at least 2 goals before they start trying to play hockey.

Its not a spoiler. Its a title of an event. And the books have been out for like 15 years now. No longer considered a spoiler anymore.

Nobody is going to ruin the experience of this season, I can tell you that much.

What you said was absolutely spoilery. You are smart enough to know that.

If I wanted to read the books I would. I will after season 4 too.

It isn't as simple as a Canadian, playing for a Canadian team, coming to play for an American team.

He's Latvian so he likely has to go through the Latvian consulate and given the history between the US and the former Eastern Block plus the Easter holiday it is taking a little more time to process.

HAHA, if they lose this game... This board will self destruct.


Hopefully they come out with 2.. but you never know with the streak they've been having.


Also, imagine if Dogman comes here and gets scratched for Pandolfo.

[politics] Within the NAFTA agreement Canadians and Americans have preferential treatment when applying for work visas. In some cases, Canadians and Americans can apply for work visas at their point of entry (the boarder) and is often granted immediately. One example is the TN1 US visa, but I don't think it applies to hockey players. [/politics]

That is a ****ing spoiler.

Jesus.

Yeah, wah, I know, because I'd like someone not to partially ruin something I love.

Good job, good effort.

Where is that button so I don't have to worry about you or Mione doing this anymore....

I would never drop a spoiler buuuuut seriously though, you should read the books.

Do yourself a favour and read em. Calling yourself a fan of Game of Thrones and not reading the books is kind of like calling yourself a fan of the Bruins and not watching their games. I think I read the first one back in 1998 --so this series has been a long time coming. Looks like HBO is getting a bigger budget all the time to do it some justice.

I'm curious about what they'll do with the show if they end up getting ahead of GRRM writing the remainder of the series.

I'm a fan of the TV show. Never claimed otherwise.

Aside from that though your analogy is spot on.

I am going to read the books eventually, but for right now I am enjoying Game of Thrones the TV show as much as any show ever. Once I start in on the books I just know I'll read them all and the show will be a different experience. I am in no rush to change that right now.

And I know you agree with me about the spoilers, but for anyone that doesn't, imagine you are going to see a movie and I say, "Oh man, it has a huge twist ending that is really going to upset you," that would be a spoiler, right?
