    We match up so poorly against them...and it seems like they've had the same team for the past 10 years. They're more skilled than us and they're more disciplined in keeping us to the outside. No opportunities whatsoever to counter-punch and do what we did to the Lightning the other day. They seem to always beat us on the ice and on the scoreboard.

    One thing I noticed about the Bs last night is that they came out flying and attacking the puck carrier almost instantaneously. As soon as anyone on WAS had the puck, a B was right there. BUT - seems like they got a little tired as the game wore on, and weren’t as persistent.
    So when Isles play the Bs, I think they’ll have to remain patient and play Isles hockey. Hopefully it’ll pay off later in the game.

    Isles were also abysmal for much of that stretch.

    this is true. I started to notice we had a lot of bad runs with the teams we frequently played during that time. There was an 0-18-3 stretch against the caps too.

    it was a long time ago, I guess I’m starting to forget how bad they were back then.

    Specifically due to the fact that most of those wins came under Trotz.

    Man, first the comment about Richie's wife and now this!

    First of all, nothing is as terrible as the Fisherman.

    Second of all, nothing is better than Sparky.

    Gritty is trash and so is the organization he represents. You should know this.

    He’s not the player he once was but he wants out of Buffalo.

    I could see him going to MTL or TOR if BUF retains salary and takes some back.

    Holy Crap! Flames playing Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” at the end of the game. That’s awesome! Is that new? If not, how have I never noticed that before?!

    Leafs lose again. But Tavares has 2 points. Sound familiar?

    After taking care of the Kittens ourselves, a Toronto implosion is like the cherry on top of the sundae.

    Now that the Rags beat the Sharks, another team bypassing that northern trash can organization with games in hand. PJB's legacy is really going to be ugly. To have your former team instantly get better the season you leave and you almost single-handedly slam shut their contender window is quite the gorilla on the local boy's back

    On ice for three of the goals against. Also sounds familiar.

    CDH on the IR with a shoulder injury. He's a such a great D man, real shame; he's been the Hawks' best D man, by far. If he were injury-free he'd be awesome on the 2nd pair. Moves Toews to the 3rd; Leddy trade bait. Stacked.
