    Can we help Housley's development by setting him in the press box?

    Amazing they're still only 4 pts out. If we can get back some good run from the goalies and continue to clean up their own end (much better last wknd), I like their chances this week. We're due for a good run from Jack & hope Reino keeps it going and his line pots a few. Sorry for the non doom n gloom post ;)

    Agreed and if we win both can gain some nice momentum.


    Hoping for a big game from our top players. Feel bad about Cj, how much worse must we be? 10 pts back from a wildcard spot? Its so sad watching a promising season slip away after so many bad seasons in a row.
    Just win.

    If Mittelstadt out what happens?

    Rodrigues takes his 2C spot and then we see Smith-Sobotka-Thompson.

    Poor Smith, really thought he would be back in FOR SURE after a loss. Silly me.

    Oh God he actually said that. LOL. He may as well have come out and said Lehner struggled here because our organization completely sucks.

    Housley probably thinks Hunwick is helping Dahlin because he is a vet.

    This pairing isnt working..
    Why put the youngest player on the D with the worst d man in the line up..
    He should be burried with Scandella on the bottom pair.

    No Smith ...but Suc%bota and Pommincorpse

    Who expects a team to miss the playoffs after leading the league in November (over 90% probability to get in)
    A lot of incompetence and hand sitting is necessary to make a less than 10% probability come true..

    I think it's worse than that. I'm pretty sure we're going to be the first team to ever miss while being in first place after Thanksgiving, and didn't our first place last into early December?
