  1. The day before the ECF started we had a Moderate Earthquake (4.7) here in Southern California and my Signed Rod Brindamour Lithiograph that I won from this website during the 05-06 season fell off the wall and shattered. I knew that couldn't be a good sign.
  2. Id keep Jussi because he will come with a huge discount. Larose is a goner as he will sign for the money and he deserves it he just won't get it here. I see detroit in his future because A) hes from there and they will pay 2.5 for a third liner who can kill penaltys. Cole should sign with the first team that offers him 2 mil+ a season, JR TAKE NOTE! Do not sign Cole for more than 2 mil a season. I see Cole with the Habs or Toronto, Habs cause he kills there and both teams because they overpay for guys whoes best years are behind them
  3. we'll get them next time. Our team doesn't know how to play if the odds aren't stacked totally against them. Now that the mainstream media will be saying how this is a new series and the Bruins have new life the canes will be in thier comfort zone as the underdogs.
  4. Aparently no one noticed that they failed to finish the game last night. They treated the last goal like it was sudden death OT but since it was a goal in regulation there should at least have been a puck drop.
  5. Unlike Sidney Crosby, I think Jokinen plays for the name on the back, not the logo in the front
  6. I say we pick up the girl "The Bachelor" put on waivers the other day
  7. They do know they have some games left to play this season right?
  8. well we can scratch leopold off the list but then again we didnt need another underperforming defensman
  9. While I think Mo has exceeded expectations, I still hope that he is just here for the rest of the season. Mo should only be taken in small doses and I think he might have found a niche for himself as a Interim coach. Plenty of teams can their coaches during the season and Maurice could be the guy to bridge the gap to a real coach. Im still concerned that we will start to see the perfect shot rear its ugly head if the team falls back into another funk. On the flip side, Staal, Ruutu, Samsonov, Babchuck, and Larose have all stepped up their game, (Babchuck and Larose via getting actual playing time) and that can be traced back to about when Maurice came in. did someone light a fire under them or did Maurice's coaching skills get them to produce who knows? On a related side note Kudos to Justin Williams Rehab people, he hasnt lost a step
  10. Here's how that conversation went, Maurice: Larose! your moving down to the fourth line Larose: What? well was it because I wasnt scoring enough? Maurice: No, your actually scoring more than we could hope for Larose: Well is it my work ethic? Maurice: No, you give it all every shift? Larose: Was it the Chad? (see Tom Green in charlies angles)
  11. All of you who are galloping around on your High Horses calling us Fair weather fans need to look at what we are really saying. We are not mad a Lavi being let go it is that a proven failure has been given the coaching job of our team. There is no logical reason for why JR did this.
  12. This Just in I found JR's short list for coach John Tortarella Sarah Palin Stormy Tripp Tracy Paul Maurice
  13. I bet he could still play, he did the olympics what two years ago
  14. Hey we also need a goalie since ward is out, whats Irbe doin?
  15. im far from a Fair weather fan and thats why Im so po'd about this.
  16. No, you suck as a coach when your two leading scorers from the year before, Battaglia and Oneil, become off ice behavior problems. You suck as a coach when your team is at the bottom of every offensive stat for two straight seasons. You suck as a coach when you get fired after one year of coaching the next team that hired you.
  17. Yes, I think JR is trying to multiply our negatives to get a positve.
  18. Maurices' style doesnt work. Maurice adds the "Perfect Shot" to Lavi's dump and chase and that, without a capable offensive defenseman, Im talkin a Lindstrom not a Kaberle or Corvo, equals no goals. This is Like Obama naming Rumsfeld back to the Sec Def.
  19. So this is a Joke right? I mean really, its a joke right please anyone? Getting rid of Lavi was probably a step in the right direction but Maurice isnt qualified to be a stick boy much less the coach AGAIN!!! This Franchise is begining a not so slow death. I see a sale and a move to Canada in the not to distant future.
  20. To get back to lavi and his system, I have always wonderd why some players who are producing are sent down or traded because they dont fit the system and others are kept on when they contribute little to the team. Like why did Lacoture get sent down, he was scoring goals and why back in 05 did we trade Vrbata who was giving us a point per game the few times Lavi would let him play. I tend to think that Lavi isnt flexible enough as a coach and will sacrifice production to to play guys that fit into his system (which the rest of the leauge has been able to handle for going on 3 years now).
  21. Tom Barrasso should fix Cam Ward (i think he needs a new "clutch") before taking on the rest of the team. Ron Francis in Rutherfords replacement, Tom Rowe is good where he is. For the three full seasons Lavi has had the team we have been contenders and thats why he needs to stay. Let him pull a Maurice before we fire him.
  22. Here's My prediction, A comedy of errors will befoul the caps before the game, Montreal authorities will recover Christobal Huet as he was reported stolen around Feb 26th. Upon learning this Olaf Kolzig is required to be taken out of cryogenic storage where it will be discoverd that someone has taken his mojo. Tom Poti and Alexander Semin will finally realize why people snicker when they read their names and will file to get them changed, the ensuing roster mix-up will leave them both healthy scratches. Sergei Federov will run into Pavel Bure at Starbucks and an argument erupts over who cost who Anna Kournikova, moca lattes fly and Sergei suffers an upper body injury. Nicklas Backstrom will end up on the Terror watch list and be banned from attending large sporting events, Later the CIA will apologize for the mixup. Mike Green will catch the dreaded carolina hockey flu passing it to everyone on the team leaving only Donald Brashear John Erskine Steve Emminger and Alex Ovechkin ready to play. Unfortunatly for the Canes Ted lenonsis the caps owner suits up in goal and pitches a shut-out because none of the panthers want to score on him because Teds such a nice guy. Ovechkin scores the lone goal in the shoot out by connecting on the "toss the puck in the air spin and shoot shot" he missed during all star weekend
  23. My Goats of the game would be, 1. Ward. The first two weren't his fault, yes he should have been in a better position but anytime an opposing Dman creeps that far into the slot your Defense has hung you out to dry. The breakaways, Thats all you baby at least force the shooter to deke, Ward takes on breakaways like its the pregame warmups. 2. Cole. Twice he was standing infront of the goal like a statue with the puck infront of him and he did nothing. He wasnt there tonight. and not that it came into play in this game but whats up with his "puck to the inside I go around move" that never ever ever works. 3. Samsonov. open net, forehand, backhand, forehand shot, goalie save. This made me think of the last goal Ovechkin scored against us. It was rolling away from him and he got to it turned and fired, For gods sake shoot the puck when you have an open net.
