    Well, there goes the only theme I had thought of for creating a GDT.

    good GDT as usual CI.

    I wish Dvorak and Dwyer were swapped in that line-up. you figure that Jordan shooting Eric in the ass might help? :) no Komi, Westgarth?

    I've yet to watch Breaking Bad, which I've been told is a poor choice on my part.

    I do think the Canes will make it tough for the Leafs. I watched them control the Preds, but I believe the Canes are better, and more experienced than Nashville, so I wouldn't be surprised if Carolina lost in a SO.

    Feeling reasonably good about this one. Leafs are due for a good trouncing.

    Getting a good defensive matchup on the road is going make this game a tough one as the Leafs will try to exploit any weaknesses in our defensive pairings with Kessel.

    Really looking forward to this one.....but my wife is dragging me to a production of Ghost Brothers in Darkland County. At least it's dinner theatre.

    Toronto is on the list of teams that always seem to have exciting games with the Canes.

    Isles, Bruins, Washington, Colorado, Chicago, and Philly being the others that come to mind.

    Looking forward to it.

    Then you should drag her to a production of Ghost Busters.

    Komisarek isn't in, Gleason isn't ready. So I guess Bellemore stays? I don't understand that decision. Sounds like Westgarth is in for Sutter with Dwyer centering the fourth. I don't understand that decision either.

    Oh my.

    I'm going to be greatly amused at watching Westgarth attempt to keep up with the other two on a rush.

    That implies one of those 3 will have the puck on their stick for more than 2 seconds.

    Don't know if the Kings are the slowest skating team in the history of hockey but Westgarths speed looked half decent at times against them. But still there's no way he's going to keep up with those two on the rush.

    Probably just see Staal's double shifted, and westgarth played sparingly?

    Leafs lines are actually...

    Raymond-Bozak-Kessel
    Lupul-Kadri-Broll
    Leivo-Bolland-McClement
    Orr-Smith-Ashton

    Time to deal with all the Ontario Born Hurricane players having a huge hard on in the ACC, too predictable.

    You're probably right. I don't hate it when Westgarth is in, but I hate giving him like 3 or 4 minutes and basically playing a man down all game. Seems like a waste.

    Skinner got his concussion last year in Toronto. Wesgarth is probably in for protection.

    Who else is going to orchestrate a staged fight after one of our players gets creamed?

    Oh wait.. I don't think Wesgarth even did that last year.

    Sorry, when I posted this, your GDT wasn't up, so I used the lines from your last game :)
