GDT: 10/4/07 - BLUES at Phoenix

Last year, I had a nice design for these so the GDT's didn't look like crap, and I took time putting in some relevant stats to make it informative. The Blues played like crap. I stopped making them, and the Blues quit playing like crap. Coincidence? I think not.

So ... there's no reason not to have GDT's, but someone here will have to volunteer to come up with a spiffy-looking design for it. It doesn't have to be incredibly gaudy like I've seen on other forums, just something that lets everyone know what's going on and answers some questions we'll get asked 137,000,002 times. If anyone is interested, we'll audition and find one that brings the Blues the best luck looks pretty nice.

No more missing the playoffs, folks. No more excuses, no more pining for the past, no more "Christ, another 81 games of this crap?" this year.

As the Blues have said all summer, whatever it takes - and yes, I'll be up Thursday night watching. First time in 2 years I've been able to see the team play, and I'm not missing it.

EDIT: I'll throw in a little info, from JR's blog.

Forwards
Rucinsky-Tkachuk-Backes
Kariya-Weight-Boyes
Stempniak-McClement-Mayers
King-R. Johnson-Hinote
-- Perron is a healthy scratch; Cajanek was returned to Peoria, and Mike Johnson's contract wasn't approved by the NHL in time for him to play tonight.

Defense
Brewer-Salvador
Jackman-E. Johnson
Backman-Wagner
-- Walker is a healthy scratch

Legace in net, Toivonen backs up.

Well Irish, I'd like to help, but they stole my internet access at work so I won't have the time. Guess I'll just be lurking on 'em and dropping my $.02 here and there. But in the spirit of things, and I suppose its a bit early, but here's my call:

Blues 4, Coyotes 3 (shootout) in a game that shouldn't be this close,

Kariya (1st goal), Weight, Mayers

Kariya, Perron in the shootout

Blues 2 Yotes - 0
Backes scores both goals.

Perron vaults into the Coyote's bench, and pummels
Gretzky mercilessly, after which John Davidson announces that Perron's number will be raised to the rafters before the 1st home game....

...And while ***** slapping the Great One, Perron can be heard to mutter "This is for blowing your coverage of Stevie Y in double overtime, punk!", making him an instant fan favorite, of course.

What's sad? I can see the Blues sluffing this one off and falling 4-3 ... with everyone thinking, "Good God - what the hell were the Blues doing out there?"

Even with Mike York centering the 2nd line.

Anyone else notice how bad the Blues are in season openers? I'm pretty sure since 95-96, we've won one season opener...crazy.

Perron isn't going to play. Murray doesn't want to put too much pressure on him or overexpose him.

It may be a good game for him to get into and play, due to being on the road and against Phoenix - no offense Phoe fans, but I like our line up getter.

Jesus, that team really does look bad when you put it down on paper like that.

I had originally thought 3-4 Blues when I thought about it but after looking at that lineup I wish I'd selected St. Louis to score alot more goals in the October YNOT.

7-5 Blues in a wild shoot-em up. I expect a good number of fighting majors too.

2 goals Kariya
2 goals Stempniak
1 goal Weight
1 goal Backes (the first)
1 goal Jackman

At least one Blue goes down to injury.

That's a mistake, IMO. The Habs did that with Doug Wickenheiser when they played the Blackhawds because of the uproar over them not picking Denis Savard. I don't think Doug took that too well. If you're going to keep the kid, then play him right off the bat. Don't give them a chance to think too much. If they don't perform when you play them, send them down to the minors or junior until they get it, then call them back up. It's not rocket science. There are enough fourth-line scrubs out there to fill up the seats in the press box, you shouldn't be scratching forwards with top-six potential.

I'll go 4-1 Blues. I can see them slacking off, but that's a disgusting Coyotes lineup.

Goals:
Kariya; Weight, Brewer
Backes; McClement
Kariya; unassisted
Boyes; Weight

Doan; unassisted

Blues win 3-1.

Stempniak gets a goal. Tkachuk gets one. I'll go on a limb and say Doan scores for Phoenix in the third. Stempy gets the EN goal.

I'm assuming Legace is your starting goalie?

With Kitchen behind the bench, I could easily see that happening...under Murray, however, I think we'll see at least a reasonable opening-night effort from the boys.

4-2 Blues.

I am predicting a 5-4 Blues win and an early fight of the year candidate when King and Josh Gratton have a go.

Blues SHOULD win, I cant wait to see Johnson... I personally think they have a run in store for this year. I want Stempniak in the action tonight, and Kariya wouldnt be a bad thing either...

I'll try to dig the modem and such from the Bunker where I'm in the process of setting up my office so I can participate in the GDT; between it, friends here and a bag of ice, I'll be able to enjoy the game.

If not, I'll post $.02 in the morning.

Whoo yeah I'm so ready for this.



Ihave a bad feeling about tonight though.

I think Carcillo gets the first goal followd by 3 more phx goals and Legace pulled. Toivunin comes in and gets scored on too. Then we come back and score 2 goals. Losing 5-2 . . . . .


with that said I hope like hell I'm wrong.
