Well every young guy does have the chance to become a superstar. Just a REALLY small chance

Kinda rooting for Toronto tonight because if they climb within 2 points of rival montreal for the 4th seed you would think it would light a fire under the Canadiens to come out hard against the Jets tomorrow. Then again who knows?!?!?!

Great game so far.

Detroit is playing well, Quick is the reason this game is only 1-1.

That's my thinking. Losing standings and home ice comes into play.

Detroit is definately my second favorite team. If only Rangers would play a desperation game like Detroit does.

I think Wild get in. That means 1 of Wings/Jackets miss out. As bad as I want Jackets to get in I also don't want Wings streak to come to an end.

Petition to turn CN Tower into goal light

Quote:
Toronto Maple Leafs fan Scott Booth was at a wedding the night his team defeated the Ottawa Senators to clinch its first Stanley Cup Playoff berth since 2004. When he heard the news, it gave him the opportunity to try to execute an idea he thought of weeks earlier.

"I overheard someone say, 'They won, they're in.' So I thought, 'OK, now I know what to do,'" Booth told NHL.com. "I woke up early the next morning and went to Change.org and wrote the petition."

The online petition, which can be found at www.change.org/LeafsGoalLight, called for Toronto's iconic CN Tower to be converted into a giant goal light, which would glow red every time the Maple Leafs score during the playoffs.

Within 24 hours of Booth posting the petition, it had more than 3,500 signatures. By Wednesday evening, it had more than 16,000. That's short of Booth's goal of 50,000, but quite a total for four days.

Despite the growing popularity of Booth's idea, the Tower's administration isn't quite ready to adopt the concept, regardless how many signatures the petition gets.

"The CN Tower will be showing their support for the home team by lighting Toronto Maple Leafs blue each night the Toronto Maple Leafs play a playoff game," CN Tower public relations manager Irene Knight said in an emailed statement. "Throughout the year, the CN Tower lighting program recognizes dozens of citywide events, charitable events and causes, seasons and special holidays. We do receive various creative requests for special lighting at the CN Tower. Each opportunity is carefully considered to ensure a consistent and equitable approach to all the important causes and occasions."

Booth's goal-light proposal has garnered plenty of attention around Toronto. Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri mentioned the proposal in a tweet April 23, calling it "genius."

"I think goal lights are very important. They signify the hard work the team has done to put the puck in the net. It's unfortunate that only the people in the arena ever get to enjoy that," Booth said. "It's been almost 10 years since the Leafs have made the playoffs, so why not share that excitement of the goal light going off with the whole city?"

The petition has given Booth a generous head start as he enters the job market. A week after completing his final college exam, he made a point to mention in the petition he had graduated from Toronto's George Brown College with a marketing degree.

"I knew this was a big idea and I never thought it would get as much attention as it already has. I slipped in that line about being a new grad and I'm very happy I did. A lot of people have asked me about that," Booth said. "So far the support and the interest from fans has been huge. The only negative things I've been hearing is from [Canadiens] fans, which I think is a testament to how good the idea is."

MSL had a hatty today and took the scoring lead.

I hope he wins the Art Ross. Would be the oldest player since Howe.

Devils have called up Mike Sislo. You just know he's going to have his first NHL game in MSG and that he'll score.

Some of the comments from you fellow Rangers on the Staal thread are hilarious.

This guy will never get the credit he deserves.

Hard to believe that the fate of three teams may lie solely in the hands of the Montreal Canadiens tonight.

What's not hard to believe is that the fate of two teams will be in the hands of the Devils on Saturday. Especially since one of them will be your 2012-2013 New York Rangers.

Winnipeg is a -14 as a team. Then don't deserve the playoffs. They lose tonight to an angrier Montreal team.

I've been thinking about it and am wondering, did this shortened season give teams who usually wouldn't succeed a chance? Are we seeing the real Montreal Candiens? Would the leafs really make it in an 82? Isles? I'm not trying to discredit these teams, but it really is an interesting thought

Marc Staal, as expected, wishes he could be fourth Staal brother on ice tonight. Said would not be out for pregame, as Eric had hoped

This stuff is annoying. All of the Staal brother stuff is annoying. Eric hoped Marc would take part in the warmup? Who the **** is Eric?

Totally. I'm so sick of these Staal brothers wishing for Marc's speedy recovery.

Definitely. He was supposed to be out for the rest of the season.

Each time I post on that board, I immediately regret it. It's a breeding ground for some of the absolute worst posters we have on the forum.

I'm so worried his skating never will be the same, he was such a dynamic player and his skating as a big part of that. I honestly think he'd have a chance of beating Lidström's 7 Norrises if not for the injury, he dominated the play like no other (current) NHL player before his injury.

Karlsson was a generational talent, and I hope he still is.
