    I’m shocked, shocked I tell you.

    The Flyers are so inconsistent it’s ridiculous. They are probably going to sweep in round 1 then go up 2-0 and lose 4 in a row.

    I think that means we are overtaking Flyers, and they miss playoffs instead of us:naughty:

    YES! I get to root for the Red Wings tonight! The tank is off! (For 1 night, then the tank is back on)

    I'm only going to give myself a small pat on the back, because with so few games played, one or two decent games gets Mrazek right back to decent stats. But I said Mrazek didn't strike me as that great and didn't have numbers much better than Darling, and I didn't really want to give up anything for him. We did and still do need to aim higher than that.

    Not sure if you are serious, but if so, I think it has to do with this:

    Hey, I don't have a crazy sister here to pat me on the back, so I had to do it myself.

    Nice of you to take the bullet for the rest of us. Obviously I have the excuse that English is not my first language.

    Sometimes I feel like you are more English than some guys here, mostly because your reference game is very strong

    Honestly at one point I kind of thought Lempo was pretending to be from Europe. The reference game is one thing, but you have a sense of wordplay and puns that I've never seen in a non-native speaker.

    Lempo is a full on polyglot. I don’t quite recall what it was, but I remember him making a fantastic pun in German on the politics board one time.

    The puns are really good.....and then sometimes it seems the writing is coming out of an online translator. The dichotomy is fascinating.

    All part of a long con, I assume.

    Someone got pointed out for messing up writing 'totenkampf' but got away for it sounding cool; the 'mein kopf sounds like hungover Hitler' thing was just hanging there. I don't speak German.

    I'll go ahead and say I'm still a fan of Mrazek. I think he has a lot of talent just needs more consistency.

    Also RE people talking about his attitude....I don't mind a goalie with a lot of pride who gets upset at losing. Sounds like the attitude we need more of in our org.

    The last episode if Psych I saw had some great Police Academy references. Now I really want to go watch them all again.

    They really don't make movies like that or Naked Gun, Top Secret, Airplane, or Hot Shots anymore...seems like that sense of humor is largely dead with this generation :(.
