    Well if Lundqvist plays like he did against the Pens, then anything is possible. Though I don't believe they (Flyers) will be able to get their first win today.

    I am really interested in the Wild/Wings game tomorrow night. Are the Wild ready to be a powerhouse in the conference? Are the Wings ready to give up being a power team in the conference and move to rebuilding?

    Guy I used to work with, his brother was the goalie for that team, not sure if he still is though. He practiced alot with some of the former Preds guys and he got us lots of free tickets lol. Don't see his name listed on the roster though.

    Somebody send these kids an offer sheet! Its fucking sad that their owners cant work something out for them with the skill set that each of these kids have, I for sure thought the Avs would make something happen with O'Reilly since Downie is done for the year...This is sad.

    At least we have won a couple of games without our D looking like a triple A hockey team :P

    This Sabres game is killing me. Sabres fans that think Enroth is a starting quality goalie are absolutely delusional homers.

    Enroth has had a really bad game, but he has shown qualities to be a starter.

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

    Enroth isn't good enough to be a starter, trust me

    I disagree fairly strongly, but I'd love to be absolutely dead wrong about it. I think his solid stats last year were the product of the team playing a more conservative style to cover him up rather than signs of genuine competence. Granted, everyone has nights like this, and I'm probably having an emotional overreaction, but this isn't a new feeling for me. I really don't think he's what my fellow Buffalonians think he is.

    Wait... He signed for 5.25M and it took them this long to sign him. The fuck, how much did they offer him at first? 2M?

    I think at first the issue was the year length, not sure.

    Curious who caved on the year length then. Puts him at 28 so he can leave as an UFA if he wants, figured Dallas would want 3 years so they can sign him long term at age 26, rather than give him the option.

    Maybe I'm a sucker, but that Benn contract seems totally fine to me. I don't really get what the big hangup was. If you like Benn in his age 26 season for that price, there's no reason to not like him at 28. I guess longer is always higher risk, but he's about as low risk as you get.
