    I feel I cannot answer that poll until the goalie is announced. Other than that, Borq or a Tyson should split it 50/50.

    How dare you?
    To help him skate faster, or an upward one? Not that it matters.

    I think he means this; goat as in “scapegoat”, not this; GOAT is an acronym for Greatest Of All Time.

    But if you really feel like you've earned your place..

    Btw I thought GOAT was "God of all things," and I think I like mine better.

    The poll means GOAT right, because I voted Gabriel Bourque.

    I've earned my place as much as 90% of the players, over the last 10 or so games...

    Homerism and jokes don't have a place in a serious poll like this.

    I felt that way too, even though it was that beginning of the month large ticket trip where you only buy like five meals worth and it is somehow 300+. Then you remember 100$ of that is diapers.

    Grubauer starts. Avs down 3-0, Francouz comes in and avs win 4-3. Francouz sent back to AHL after the game.

    This is the game the top line turns the jets back on and dominates

    I thought they'd go Francouz tonight but they're sticking with Grubauer. I don't mind that.

    No Bourque!

    We just can't have both the cake and the ice cream I guess.

    I'm seeing a tripping penalty in the first two minutes, followed by a Rangers goal.

    Ghetto is so bad that he got replaced by O'Connor and needed Bourque to contribute to two goals against to get back in the lineup. Bourque sitting tonight is nice but I don't expect it to last with the lack of options for Bednar. Maybe once Wilson is healthy but probably not since they'd just send O'Connor down and Bednar wouldn't want Ghetto playing.
