I'm so glad he's not the Sabres headache anymore. I don't miss Thomas Vanish when he well, vanishes

Also, the bounty the Sabres got for him in the trade

As an acquaintance of Thomas, I don't like it

As a Rangers fan, I'm thoroughly enjoying it

Kelly Hrudey, who isn't shy of ripping a guy when it's deserved.

Deserved, unless he's playing hurt. I'm sure the Islanders are thrilled, either way.

Kopitar just cruising through the Austrian defensive zone. They cant take the puck away from Muršak too. Looks good so far

Derp. Too many men on the ice penalty.

Very entertaining game so far. One of the best periods in this tournament actually. Gotta love Slovenia, they are playing great hockey.

I'm going to laugh to whoever signs Vanek to a crazy deal. He's just so lazy.

I will say this about Slovenia, though. They actually have had some nice cycles. I know the lack of good play from Austria is helping Slovenia create those nice plays, but nonetheless, they actually have some decent skill and solid puck movement. I like them as a team.

Also, Kopitar is a beast.

they're just letting them walk to the inside. This could be a lot more than 2-0
A whole other team Austria has to emerge from the locker-room

You have to assume Vanek will wake up eventually.

Austrians aren't even trying or they are just getting severely outplayed. Slovenia is clearly the hard working team and they are really playing with hard like it's their last game. Slovenia isn't an easy team to beat and it isn't only Kopitar the one doing all the work.

It's gonna be interesting how will our national (SLO) tv handle the switching between women's GS and this game. We have a legitimate chance for gold medal, but I feel this game is kind of the same magnitude for our sport. I mean, Maze has already won one gold, but this game is probably once in a lifetime.
