Props to Sanford too.

He's followed up his perfect October with a perfect November. ;)

Pinky: "Gee Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"
The Brain: "The same thing we do every night, Pinky—Try to take over the world."

In tonight's episode, the Brain attempts to take over the world by constructing a time machine and bringing back Markus Naslund from 2003.

A point isn't a bad result given our depleted defence, some rotten penalty killing tonight and perhaps the worst reffed game I've seen in years.

I'm sure Nonis sends a tape of this one to the League.

Of course you dress Brown. Otherwise, are you prepared to lose one of Naslund or the Twins? (I assume Sanford will be in for Roberto, so we don't have to worry about losing him, at least.) The Wild will come out looking to put a couple of our guys in the hospital. And given Boogard's size, whoever h...

Nice call, Matty! ;) Was that really the same team that couldn't score on Deadmonton playing tonight??? We sure could have used one of those goals the other night. Jeepers. Six different guys score. Kesler completely throws Gaborik off his game with his speed and grit. Edler makes the classic rookie...

It tells you something about the glut of goaltenders available these days.

Expect to see Scotty N. in a Ducks jersey shortly.

What's infinitely more bizarre is that Brett Hull is now the Star's co-General Manager. :shock:

Alrighty, Garth Snow finally has some competition!

Last night's tilt was the first one I've seen this year at the Garage where they looked even remotely like last year's team. They didn't leave a lot of open ice for the Avs, they kept things pretty simple, they were fairly patient on the forecheck, they worked pretty hard throughout the line-up, whe...

First of all, for the record, I'd like to deny that I have spent the last week in Minsk negotiating the sale of the Canucks to a Belorussian oligarch. Indeed, I completely deny this. I wholly, absolutely, totally deny this. It's a vicious, false and totally inflammatory rumor. A complete fabrication...

Power forwards have a very limited shelf life. Ask Neely or Leclair. You can't take the sort of relentless pounding they take in front of the net for fifteen years.

As I said last season, I think Bert's done.

A pity. He was a force in his prime.

A good game from the club's leaders. Nazzy played very well - that first goal was all about his anticipation and positioning along the boards. Mary, mother of God, did the Sedins have some monsters moments on the ice tonight. That two-and-a-half minute shift in the second which ended with Danny's fi...

I disagree with the knock against AV. The Coach was ridiculously up front on the Shannon demotion. The reason given was that he wouldn't need to clear waivers and we wanted to get some looks at some different guys in the lineup. Pretty simple. Also, with Shannon, Raymond and Weaver - we're a tiny te...

Gotta love Rypien going for the Gordie Howe hat trick, dropping the gloves - then having to scramble to pick 'em up again when his Oiler partner wouldn't dance. :lol: Nonis and AV made the right call bringing Rypien up. A spark for us tonight, for sure. Morrison going coast to coast was a thing of b...
