    Gustavsson is a good goalie when the team in front of him is competent. He can make great saves, however I think his play style going into his third year with the Leafs diminished greatly because he was coached into playing in a way that he wasn't comfortable with. Watch him in the first season, he was all over the place and playing a very athletic and movement oriented style of goaltending. I think Allaire really changed up his style quite a bit and it's reflected in how Gustavsson has played since then. When he is comfortable and confident, with a team blocking shots in front of him, I think he could be a solid 40 or 50 game goalie. He needs to work on consistency and not allow those bad first goals, otherwise I think he could be a number 1 goalie in the NHL if he works the kinks out.

    Tort complains about fucking everything. Dude runs a team of goons that haven't been relevant since 1994 and thinks that's the league's fault.

    Every single time they show his reaction on the bench, he's either throwing a fit or laughing at the "ridiculous" calls against his team. I've never seen a coach with such blatant disregard for reality. And the more I watch New York play, the more I realize just how much they actually get away with. They may get penalized a ton, but they somehow deserve even more. I didn't have a problem with it so much in the Washington series because I like to laugh at Ovie losing, but even there it was pretty noticeable.

    It's funny to laugh at when they're nowhere near the Cup, but the closer the Rangers come to actually winning it again, the less I want to see dirty plays and the more I want to see the better team win, whoever it ends up being. I just easily get annoyed when teams play like thugs and advance because of it.

    For those that didn't see it - Rangers down 3-0, Rupp punches Brodeur in the neck and it carries into his mask.

    You mean like Boston last year?

    Also, if Phoenix keeps up this ludicrous speed through the 1st period, they're gonna be completely done in by mid 2nd. They're shooting themselves in the foot.

    There we go, LA in the finals. This could be over ages ago if LA got their PP running...

    Very good game for Phoenix tho.

    And it's over.

    I keep thinking they are playing in LA because the fans are the same colour as the Kings

    To ever hear that hit by Brown and the subsequent feelings to the hit on Draper by Lemieux is ridiculous.

    Well... signature is 0-3.

    Oh well, grats Kings.

    You can tell WoW changed the MMO for good when players started complaining about the amount of time they sink, into a time sink.
