I think TC's health is the single greatest variable going into this season. If he can stay healthy for 60+ games, we probably make the playoffs. If he's only in for 30, we may well end up golfing again in April.
The Fan's Prayer
Our Center, who art in roster,
Timmy be thy Name.
Thy gametime come.
Thy deke be done,
On ice as it is in heaven.
Give us this game your fragile head,
And forgive us our defensive lapses,
As we forgive those who cheapshot and bite us.
And lead us not into concussion,
But deliver us from Drury.
For thine is the dangle,
and the powerplay, and the goal,
for ever and ever.
EDIT: Oh, and if you have a specific number of games, post it. I'm going with 55. Why? Because 5+5 = 10 = our magic number this year.
this prayer made me laugh so hard...and than I see the holy ones appendenge noodles reaching out to heal the wounds of all pastafarians...and the only thing i could think of was.... win... pure and utter win
