Glad to see Smaby is back, really like that kid, have to say I'm rooting for the Panthers though, I really want them to make the playoffs this year, I suppose this wouldn't be the end all for them but I think they deserve to make the playoffs.
Wow. This team has a legit shot to make a run here. It remains to be seen if the hole they put themselves in is too big to climb out. REGARDLESS....you tell me six weeks ago that the games we play in February and March have a chance to matter, i say you're crazy.
I agree about Tocchet, take the interim tag off, lock him up. These guys play for him, they play for Vinny, they play for Marty. I mean, look at the job he's done with this beat up defense that isn't great to start with. Thats enough for me.
Damn this is a different team the last couple weeks.
Its so freakin sad to think of how good this team would be if we still had Boyle and Vrbata showed up half of the time.
Boyle especially. We wouldn't have Meszaros but Boyle is better right now obviously.....we will see in a few years if the trade was good or no. If Wishart can be a top 4 guys and Mez can start scoring consistently (he has been lately.)
Gah, I hate being in Gainesville when it comes to sports broadcasting. First they have a screwy schedule for the Rays, now I leave during intermission and they have Vandy/Miss St. basketball on instead of the game. WTF?!
I think it is going to be incredibly hard to make up those 8 points but there is still a chance, I think they are going to be set up well for next year though as long as Koules doesn't go crazy again over the summer and Lecavalier remains a Bolt.
