Warning: Self-serving comment to make me feel better, anyways:
"Maybe the skate to throat comment ought not be used anymore. After all, remember our goalie coach. It's really not a funny or necessary comment. Thanks."
let's stick to pictures of monkeys and cheese sauce.
and this is the most perfect analogy for the current healthy scratch situation
Rammer’s dog house. Modin is the seven year old Golden Retriever Rammer depends on to point, flush the field, and even occasionally retieve. But Rammer knows Modin is old and needs rest–which happens sporadically throughout hunting season. Rammer is busy spending a lot of time working on the one-year-old expensive Springer Spaniel pup his boss gave him. Rammer’s boss said Bergie has a lot of hunting potential, but Bergie is a quiet, aloof pup who never barks when someone knocks at the door. Currently, Bergie is in the corner gnawing on a chew toy and not coming when called. Rammer figures Bergie will one day learn from watching the other dogs and become a member of the “pack.” Rammer would like to get rid of Bergie, but he can’t because Bergie was a gift. Eager is a two-year-old Labrador Retriever–just happy when master pays him some attention. Eager is a big, loyal dog and is becoming a mature, smart hunting companion, but Eager is still a puppy at heart and sometimes he comes in the house with muddy paws and chews up a slipper, so it’s off to the kennel occasionally. Stapleton is a year old rat terrier who comes along on hunts and spends the afternoon chasing rabbits, squirells and whatever else he sniffs out. He rarely catches anything, but watching him chase is a hoot. Ocasionally he’ll run down a squirell or two.
Well, that, and if Boston gets a lead on you, they choke the life out of the game to where it's impossible to get back into it. Atlanta *has* to come out flying and get the first two goals. Otherwise, I really don't think they can win.
