I don't see any empty seats though. You look at the lowerbowl there, and it's full.

They're quiet, but they're there.

Ergo, "fake sellouts"--I'm using their definition against them. If the seats aren't all full, it's not a sellout.
Oh, I agree completely with this. Except the last part, because by definition, a sellout means all tickets are sold. But I think we're on the same page on the overall sentiment.

That was a nasty side of Pitkanen..... very unfortunate penalty to take.

Tough break. I don't think Pitkanen expected Clutterbuck to go down.

You're not seeing the entire lower level, unless they drastically changed the camera angles (which I don't think happened since I was there).

I'll wait to get the AAR from Scorvo's mom to decide whether or not my opinion needs revision.

The angle they just showed off Minnesota's bench looked to me like the arena is pretty damn packed, top to bottom. Atleast from that side of the arena, so i'd imagine it's pretty packed.

At least it wasn't a shootout.

And yeah, that arena is packed.

That's what you get when you threaten someone should confiscate his N64 from him. Generally we get the opposite effect and he whips into gear, not tonight.

We lost--I call next GDT.

And based on my own past experiences, I still don't believe the arena was full just because parts of the lower bowl are full.

Just gotta lose to Florida and Toronto now, and we can really get this season rolling.

What a terrible coaching decision.....Sammy, Jokinen, and Wallin all on the ice during 4 on 4. A pylon and 2 guys who couldnt knock a guy off the puck to save their lives

I know some want Seguin (Can't go wrong with either honestly) but it sure would be nice to get a top flight prospect who plays LW to pair with Staal.

OK, somebody answer me this:

Rioja, or Shiraz?

I am leaning heavily toward the Rioja.

You are too fancy, AQ. There is nothing wrong with an old fashioned Shiraz.

This season isn't as fun as I thought it would be.

I hate our GM. Bringing back players after letting them walk or a trade AND now repeating coaches is just bad management. If he brings back a previous player or coach again, I through with this team. I want him gone.

Horrible game.

I swear from the 9:30 mark in the third to the 4:00 mark we didn't control the puck for more than 3 seconds (just enough to try clearing it) and Minny was never even on a PP.

The best part - THEY SUCK. They really, really suck, and we're worse.

Staal has to knock home that breakaway while we're shorthanded - when the teams struggling the stars have to shine.

All that being said, why can't we just bring in some talent for once instead of recycling garbage and hoping it catches fire. If I was Staal I probably would tank this year just to get a high pick that can play with him right away...............

I'm sure it brings a tear to his eye when he looks at the lines and see the guys to his left and right night in and night out. It sure does for me.
