    Seven game homestand incoming. Sadly, Pittsburgh, Boston, and Chicago are in there, but still, going 4-3 will be good. 5-2 will be great. Miami and Buffalo are in full rebuild mode this season, so I'd like to think we can get 4 points from them. The Kings and Wild are usually considered bubble playoff teams, and they are struggling a bit right now. I'd like to think we can get 3 or 4 points from them at home. Pittsburgh, Boston, and Chicago will be intense challenges, getting 3 points will be considered good. Going 7-0 and getting 14 points will be ideal of course, but 8-10 points will be a successful homestand, in my book anyway.

    Just so i don't let myself down, i'm not counting on wins on the Penguins - Bruins - Blackhawk games, but then if we do win, it would be awesome

    We're winning them all! Then the wheels will fall off like last year.

    How many of them are a back to back after playing the Panthers? The teams usually come out sluggish or play their backup which should help.

    Just Pittsburgh and Buffalo. We don't get many tired teams playing their backup goalies this season. We'll have to earn it.

    If we win the winnable games and steal a point or two in the tough ones, it'll be decent. My guess is Chicago comes in with a chip on their shoulder.

    5-2 is the goal here. Especially if the wins come against division opponents.

    No reason why we can't get 10/14 points.

    Totally not optimistic about this home stand.

    Might get a win against the Bruins because hey we can't always lose against them right? but the Kings, Pens, and Blackhawks are probably losses. Should beat the Sabres and Panthers with the Wild being the only toss-up.

    Opposite of a bold prediction:

    Evgeni Malkin will make our entire team look foolish and score a highlight reel goal that I have to watch over and over again EVERY F-ING COMMERCIAL BREAK ON CENTER ICE FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON

    Cindy enters the zone and is is flattened by Gudas with a well timed hip check. Cindy out for the season.

    Only PIT has to play us as the 2nd half of a back to back. They play in Sunrise the night before.

    The rest of the teams that play us, have at least a day off/travel day between last opponent and us.

    GAWD PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let this happen.

    I am just saying I have never wished injuries onto anyone but am wondering was the love for CINDY this much when was out forever with the concussion?


    I really dislike this board in regards to CINDY lol. Is like another stupid debate per day on him with guys he just doesnt and never will stack up to. I am just so over it.

    Or my favorite debate ever CINDY as a defender how many Norris would he win? I said it he would get a concussion within 2 months and be retired from hockey within two years.

    Just saying.

    He thinks Crosby is overhyped and gets too much attention and dislikes him for it.
