NO SHOT BLOCKING TONIGHT

Considering we're 28th in the league in that category... it might be tough to block less.

If we keep winning I could care less how much Roy produces. Just having him in the lineup makes the top 9 more dangerous and more balanced.

I'm saying he's only got a few. ;)
With only 4 goals, Roy will not get you out of your seats with goals, but he is a decent set up man.

What we need is more production from Zack '6 goals, 3 assists' Kassian.

Nope RD it will be ok.. Booth will come back like the second coming of Jerusalem Slim.. raining fire and brimstone on them heathen Chihawks etc... and score a multitude of goals .. none being empty netters. I also believe in the Tooth Fairy ;)

re you seriously that limited in your thinking that you critisize Boothe for being a Christian? What a tough life you must have when someone else's beliefs bother you that much. :crazy:

Could you imagine the uproar if somebody said they couldn't stand Nazem Kadri because he is a muslim?

He is?! :shock: I'ma gonna throw a pig on the ice next time at a game :D

No one cared that Glen Anderson was gay and now look, the NHL is totally for Gay!

Religion is not even close to an issue on the ice, that is strictly an off ice issue with fans (and their judgmental hang-ups) and anyone that brings it up again (either pro, con or weird) should be strung up to a net and have pucks shot at them by Luo! 8-)

Mmmm, bacon!

Generally agree, but I think the pucks should be shot by Garrison.

Edler. His shot is generally scarier than Garrison's because he always shoots on one's shins or head.... :lol:

Sami Salo must hate Edler - one shot shatters his orbital bone and nose, another shot ruptures his testicle. With friends like these...

Yeah, but Luongo can't handle the puck at all...at least Garrison would be in the close proximity of his target 1 out of 10 attempts!
