If we lose, it'll be due to "bad bounces".

ahh two mediocre teams playing each other..so excited!!

Hopefully Tucker makes use of himself tonight and is wanting to prove something..i guess same goes for Raycroft..

Dissapointed that i think the 3.5 mill Finger is still out for the Leafs..was looking forward to see him again

LOL. So true. On my way home from many awful performances and efforts this season I listen to the post game radio show. The standard answer from Granato is always, "I thought we played well. We keep playing like that and the wins will come. We played with good effort but had a few bad breaks. Bounces didn't go our way tonight."

He's playing today. Just take the win. By the way, I told you guys how useless Tucker was after he got bought out in Toronto.

The only show tonight will be a no show, the one where the team won't show up for the game.

"Bad bounces", yes. But, don't forget the "bad luck".

Here is a fun conundrum before I get to the Wolski question

Rocky Mountain News:
Quote:
Peter Budaj will get the start in goal for the Avalanche. He is 1-4 with a 3.89 goals-against average in his past six starts.
Denver Post:
Quote:
Andrew Raycroft will start in goal against one of his former teams. . .
Pick your poison

As for Wolski. Denver Post has nothing. Rocky Mountain News says:
Quote:
Wojtek Wolski, Chris Stewart and David Jones did not practice. Wolski suffered a bruised foot while stopping a puck in Tuesday's loss to San Jose and Stewart has the flu. Both are listed as day to day.

Oh and........Jeff Finger will eat us alive.

I have a feeling this one could be ugly. We'll come out flat thinking the Maple Leafs will roll over for us, they'll get up by 2 or 3 before we start playing hard. I'm felling a 5-2 loss. Then after the game hopefully they call up Weiman, and give him shot next game.

I dont remember what you said , but Tucker , doesnt hit , doesnt fight, think that he's a hockey player but he doesnt score. He's a 4th line player with the paycheck of a second line guy .

We're gonna get Finger'd

Leafs on a L4 streak, pretty bad on the road, and we just got shutout at home. This could be ugly. 5-3 Leafs with a slew of Kaberle+Toslaka for Wolski+Shattenkirk+Stewart+three 1sts proposals to follow

I'm watching the impeachment trial of my fine Governor. More suspense there than this game tonight I think

I will always watch games...although it made be via a DVR. I'm hooked on both NHL and the AVs. But I find myself recording AVs games more and watching other games live this year.

Frenchy...just add Tucker to a growing list of players who were brought in to do one thing but becuase of coaching did another thing all-together. Even if he played on the second line he'd never be productive unless he was taking it to the other team...and hard. He could still be useful in that role (and possibly as a second tier PP guy) but for whatever reason he is either not allowed to or is incapable of doing so. Considering the number of physical players brought into the AVs organization over the years and how productive they've been, I feel it is a "not allowed" to situation. They are all expected to be more productive to the AVs score sheet and not simply disruptive to the opposing teams score sheet.

Kono seems to shine as the one guy that was able to add leadership, hard-play and scoring. Lappy does as well, but his big season (offensively) was an anomaly. He's a third/fourth liner with incredible leadership skills and the ability to mentor younger players. He is not really a difference maker though as both Stewart and McLeod seem to have surpassed him in stepping up for other players and in the goal scoring areas.
