    Probably going to be a track meet. Also, Bordeleau/Orr is going to be a good one.

    Which is more likely:

    One of JML or Jay McClement scores the game winner?

    OR

    Steve Downie gets himself suspended?

    I predict McClement scoring the GWG from Liles and Dater ranting about the Avs being fools for not holding on to them for several days after, reposting Sulia links every 30 minutes.

    I'd love nothing more than a Stastny hat-trick.

    As mentioned above, I hope Bordeleau and Orr fight. Would go a long way to establishing Bordeleau's rep in the league.

    I think this game will be a 6-5 OT/ Shootout win. Just not sure for which team.

    Just saw the Avs/Leafs commercial on TSN. The Avs clips were all big hits. Makes the team look badass.

    Varly is in net I'm assuming so I hope it's not 6-5. Really want varly to keep his confidence up.

    JML is with the Marlies, he's unlikely to be called up for this game. I fully expect McClement to cause your PP units fits though.

    No GWG for Liles since he plays for the Marlies, Dater will have to find another jilted hero.

    Thank God for Jay then. Dater needs something to rant about.
     
  14. I expect the Maple Leafs to be unable to match our depth leaving McGinn and MacKinnon's line to wreak havoc. I bet TML's coach starts thinning out their talent and give a broad disadvantage to the Leafs. Bernier in net can't handle it and lets in 5 goals in 43 shots.

    Avalanche win 5-2

    Meant to ask this in the game the other night, has anyone else noticed McNab saying McGinn or McGinnon when talking about MacKinnon."? Really starting to piss me off.

    I wish I could mute him for the entire game. He's an overly optimistic broken record. For all the hate Dater gets, I'd rather listen to his ridiculous iPhone videos than hear McNabb spew the same things every night. The best is when Haynes asks him a ridiculously simple question and he goes off on a 4 minute rant about it.

    Excited for this game. I survived the offseason and now that it's been 3 days I'm anxious for another game. Glad Landy will be back

    Completely forgot about this :laugh:.


    But considering I have 50 vCash, I might as well bet it all on the Leafs.

    Coach Roy cannot hear his doubters and haters because his four Stanley Cup Rings are blocking his ears.

    Probably not the smartest to be starting stuff with leafs fans already.
     
  21. A lot of Avalanche hate in these here parts lately.

    G2P's time to shine.

    These commercials for the game are hilarious. "Patrick Roy's roughhouse Avalanche come into town with their new targets set..." :lol:
