Whoa, whoa, whoa. Are you saying that winning the Cup isn't everything? That is sacrilegious.
That is exactly what I said.

Presidents are more important than Stanleys.

But who replaces Cody's offense? I think scoring is a major concern for us, especially at the centre position when you have Hank with only 2 goals in his last 31 games and Kesler being half the player he was last year. I guess, we are a team now that hopes to get the first goal and kiddy bar the door like we did tonight a la Jacque Lemaire and hope for PP success, cause 5 on 5 hockey our offense is very limited now. I just don't understand trading an offensively gifted kid in CoHo who is playing pretty good hockey right now for a project that may or may not turn out.

How were Coho's last 15 games with the|Canucks ?

Is there a yawn emoticon?

I get the feeling you were in favor of the Neely/Pederson trade.
I'm too young to have an opinion on the Neely/Pederson trade. :)

I'm just calling it like I see it. I'm just watching the game, watching the players and seeing what they do or not do.

AV had full intent to give Kassian first line minutes tonight which is why he started him on the top line with Hank and MayRay. Unfortunately, Kassian just couldn't keep up and AV started doing the musical chair thing.

It's sad really.

Malholtra was another useless player tonight. He was great in the faceoff dot but that's it. Absolutely, positively nothing else to contribute. I didn't really notice any great defense from him and offensively, he's a black hole. It seems like he's getting worse as the season goes on.

Ginger ginger ginger. Even though our forwards are really struggling right now, our stellar goaltending gives us a chance every night.

Take the two points and get outta dodge.

But you just gave your opinion on the trade by basically calling Mathonwy an idiot for being against the trade.

I don't know, I guess I like CoHo's 18 goals over old man Pahlsson's 4.

I'm not licking anyone's ass. :)

I'm just commenting on Kassian's performance tonight.

You are certainly welcome to comment on Kassian's performance tonight as well and refute my points.

Random randomness to boost your randomly random randomness?

I like that MM won some big faceoffs in the 3rd. I liek that Kass was a part of both goals we scored. I see a team that doesn't look intimidated in the least. You see a team missing a guy who did nothing in his last 16 games. I think I have a better TV than you and way better seats.

He isn't the only one. I feel like a fucking greyhound here sometimes with a bunch of saint bernards licking my earthpad dust.
