Hey, bright side: Our worst loss is still better than Washington's worst loss.

Try unsuccessfully to get Dion Phaneuf to drop the gloves: Check

Get double minor for roughing and crosschecking Dion Phaneuf: Check(both of those penalties well deserved IMO)

Punch Colby Armstrong in Eye with gloved hand, unprovoked: Check

Get 5 minute major/game misconduct for said cheapshot: Check

Responsible for 5 PP goals scored against Thrashers in those three penalties: Check

Eager had a career night.

Not only that, but we continue to play badly until I stop watching. From then on we do good.

This curse didn't bother to stop when I get to watch the Thrashers for the first time in 2 years. I was ecstatic to come finally, but everyone **** the bed, just for me. 6 goals in the 2nd in 8 minutes was a kicker; even more of one was when Toronto scored in the 3rd. I left after that, and I find out as I'm getting into the car and leaving that the Thrashers scored two goals.

FML
please never watch us again, thanks.

on a related note, i could swear that we always lose if my ps3 is on during the game

i wonder how many games bergfors gets scratched for.

typical knee jerk reactions. eager let his emotions get the best of him tonight, don't get on your high horses and crucify the guy. armstrong nearly seriously injured peverly with the uncalled knee-on-knee at the tail end of the first, i don't feel sorry for him and i'm not going to hate on eager (let's not forget that buff took the initial penalty, too)
mason came in cold for the majority of a major penalty in a game that was already lost. mason has been getting too much heat lately after starting the season hot. give it a rest.

crowd was awful tonight. leaving during the second, yelling thrashers suck. blowouts happen to every team every season, we had it coming. i have no respect for anyone who leaves before the end of a game. shame on any of you message board warriors who don't go to games.

This.

Sportsnet Ontario before the game spent 20 of the 30 minutes talking about how good we are, and basically how we could go deep in the playoffs. After the game? They even said Army's knee was bad, and that if it wasn't for Eager having a brain poop, this was a much different game. Eager hasn't played a lot lately, He tried to hard, and basically ****ed the team in the process.

Guys, its one loss to a team that has actually played well the past 3 games (thanks to the goaltending and a hot skid). We had a couple key injuries, and it has caused us to be a gong show lately, especially with next to zero home time to practice without more then 2 days off in what? 2 months?

I was expecting this kind of game to happen, and to be honest, i expected it against the Canes. Thank god it was to the leafs. One spanking will get the team's head on straight, and thing's will go back to how they were.

Kinda glad I missed this one. I HATE the Leafs and I have a feeling I would have been facepalming and saying this a lot:



Anything good out of this game? Can we just write this off as a fluke?

What I learned from this loss.

A hockey team should never have two goons. If you have two goons, each goon tries to out goon the other to show the coach that he is the gooniest.

Keep Boults, get rid of Eager.

I remember thinking "Why?" when I saw Boults fight Orr right after Toby's goal. There was no good reason for him to go at that point. Boult's chances of beating Orr are pretty slim, but he hung in there pretty well.

Eager however....Just dumb....

I was hoping for a line brawl torward the end of that calamity.

I'll quote Darren Eliot from the THRASH/SLUGS game a few seasons back when they beat us 11-1(?),"sometimes if you're not gonna win,you leave a trail out of town"

'Course the good thing is since Eager got a match penalty and we're not the Bruins, he should be suspended for at least the next game. Time to put Slater on IR and bring up Stapleton/Machacek?

I am going to head to the Thrasher practice today at 11am. Will be interested to see the mood of the team. Games like last night happen at times. Just forget it and go on.

Eager sucks.

Per @ajcthrashers on Twitter:

Quote:
Kane, Slater, Antropov and Modin not taking part in #Thrashers Saturday practice.
Last night's game was rough, but even the best teams get spanked like that from time to time. I'm guessing the Thrashers underestimated the Leafs because they expected a tired team since they played the night before and had to fly here. Even when you're playing a team that's on the back end of back to back games, you cannot look past them. If you do, they take advantage of you and beat you like a government mule.

Lucic sucker punches one of our guys with a bare fist, while tied up, and doesn't even get the game suspension you are supposed to get for a match penalty. And Eager gets 4 games for that?

What a load of garbage.

No shame here.
There are reasons I've illustrated before why I cannot attend games very frequently.
Broad brush strokes aren't pretty when you're trying to paint a nice picture.

Spin the wheel, Colie!

But, really, I'm happy. At this point, I think we're a better team without him.

How many times have we seen fighters punch other fighters when they are tied up and dont wanna drop the gloves?

Eager blind sided punched army with his gloves still on twice. and eager is an also repeat offender he got what he deseved hell probley do it again.
guys like eager dont learn and the nhl should keep adding more games.

The video doesn't agree with you. Army was looking right at him. Knowing Army, he ran his mouth at Eager after the play stopped regarding his missed attempt to lay a hit on him.

Look, man. I can't speak for btn, but I'm happy with the suspension length. I just wish Lucic and Shelley were shown the same treatment. If you're going to fine Lucic 3500 bucks, why break precedence? That's the meat and potatoes of the issue, here.
