These may have been the Winter Classic jerseys from this years cancelled game:
Fuck the NHL. I really want that Wings jersey. The Wings and Leafs better be playing in next year's WC.

That Leafs jersey looks weird. Prison stripes with a giant pot leaf in the middle.
Hiding in shame, yet we aren't in 10th place. Anyways the Blues had what we call "The Homestand from Hell".
The Blues are not putting in the work needed to win the games. Halak went down and relied on Elliott to keep us in it but could not do so.
After snapping our 5 game losing streak (0-4-1) Jake Allen got 4 starts and went (3-1-0). Sharks game I didn't watch but from the way HFBoards Blues fans put it is that they were slow and looked worn out from the Vancouver flight fiasco. For those of you that didn't know the Blues previously took Vancouver to a shootout win the 17th and were supposed to leave the next day but the flight was cancelled due to the plane needing a new part. So the Blues had to drive at 2AM in the morning from Vancouver to St. Louis for their game against the Sharks.
Now concerning the Avs game. We outplayed the Avs but Varlamov simply stole the game for them. He came up huge and denied us on what should have been an automatic goal. I called it at the start of the 3rd period, we were outplaying them by a large margin but it was still 0-0 and said "Well this will end with us working our asses off to win only to lose to some dinky shot or fluke goal." Now the shot was a great shot and wasn't a fluke but it was one of the few shots they had and was really demoralizing after playing such a great game.
We just really need to continue to play the game our players were meant for, a hard working team game. During the "Homestand from Hell" we had a lof of our guys just trying to do their own thing rather than winning by hard work and determination.
Rick DiPietro got placed on waivers, the article about it has the hilarious phrase "assuming he clears waivers" which makes me laugh since the only team that would be dumb enough to claim him on waivers is the Islanders themselves
maybe he can get healthy and be a top 5 goalie in the AHL

An unbroken but tied record still holds up in the annals of history. You'll be the team that nearly broke the Anaheim record, but fell short and only tied it.
Not that it isn't an awesome feat to have tied the record - but it's not the same as "having the record".

put bluntly: id rather have say, Kronwall, and Datsyuk gone for the ENTIRE SEASON, and let the rest of the team to gel, then lose players, have some return, and lose others.
Seriously, is the NHL just going to say 'fuck you Boston and throw them 3 games in 3 days by putting the game against Tampa Bay immediately following a back to back to make up for the fact that they have so many damn games in hand? They have played 5 less games then the team with the most games played in the conference and that is Philadelphia at 19 games played. They have only 3 more games remaining this month and there are still 6 days left in it, but then they have 4 games in 6 days at the beginning of March (funnily enough, the 4th game is against Toronto on the 7th). 7 games in 12 days is bullshit when they still have 2-5 games in hand on every other team in the conference.
Divisionally the East is hilarious, the North East and Atlantic have the 7 best teams in the conference right now, the Rangers are still a whopping 6 points back of the Devils for the Atlantic division lead with only 1 game in hand while the Penguins are just 2 points back of the Devils. Meanwhile in the North East, Boston, Toronto and Ottawa are all tied for 2nd in the division with only a single win being the dividing factor between 4th and 1st in the conference.

Terrible Decision for Wings fans tonight:
Root for Chicago to set a record.
Root for San Jose to win.
seriously. just shoot me.
Taylor Hall suspended 2 games for the knee on knee incident against Minnesota the other night. To be fair, it was only Cal Clusterfuck...I mean Clutterbuck, but still the suspension was pretty light.
Anderson is doubtful to play for Ottawa for the next several days at least, Lehner has been called up to fill in. Hopefully Bishop get's the start tomorrow against the Leafs so we can light him up and say 'SUCK IT' to Sens ownership when Scotiabank Place is filled with Leafs fans hiding their colours.
I don't know about anyone else but I found the start of this game really boring, Atleast lou showed up.
If anything they will think slightly better of Chicago since 13-0-3 is better than 12-0-4.
Hopefully this is a moot point after tonight.
