I don't put down fans of these teams in the Sun Belt, but boy does that hockey environment ever bore the hell outta me. Highly visible mascots (that Youppi rules over), marketing giveaways, gimmicks, homer announcers (worse than most up North!). It's weird to see how much they cater to fans by giving them all this other entertainment outside the game itself. There's too much of it everywhere, but it seems worse in those non-crazy hockey markets.
I love how half the crowd of these loser organizations like TB are Habs fans. Who could cheer for an inept group like the lightning?
PK been good lately. Even chipped in 2 shorties last night (ok second was the empty netter, but the stats don't see the differences). Didn't look so organized there, nice to see someone actually lay that punk Prospal on his ass after he got a cheapie in front. Boy Prospal is such a pest, he'd fit in so well with Carolina. At least St. Louis and Vinnie score on us without being loathsome.
Montreal has been more of a defensive team this year. Better at preventing goals than scoring them, so not really a blow out kind of team.
Though scoring (and the PP) have been on the upswing lately.
Thats the problem, this defensive system. We are an offensively skilled team, if Carbo had an aggressive system, we'd spend more time in the offensive zone where teams can't score on us, and where we will score more.
