They've done well so far, but it's the mistakes that hurt us again.

Anyone know what the personal reasons are for Manny being out again?

Oake lives up to his name.

He sounds so wooden, it's difficult not to change the channel.

All i could really find on Manny was this quote by AV
"He has got personal issues hes dealing with and its going totake a little bit of time," Coach Alain Vigneault said without elaborating. "I think he'll be in and out of our surrounding for awhile. It's a personal reason. That's it."

I agree with Kelly Hrudey.

The team (especially the Twins) look tired and it started after the Boston game.

But back then, they were winning games with great goaltending.

Now, the same tiredness still exists, we're not getting the same great goaltending, and we're losing games.

It really is unfortunate that nobody tracks puck possession because I "feel" our puck possession numbers have taken a large dip this season. I also "feel" that we're chasing the puck a lot more and getting attacked more often than previous seasons.

I tend to agree with PJ Stock and they've let up a little knowing they're going to make the playoffs in a good seed. No one in the NW is going to over take them so they're gong to finish in 3rd at the worst. They've come out flat for the last 10 games, but pick it up when they want to.

Are we reenacting a Tim Horton's commercial?

Is AV rewarding Mason Raymond or is AV punishing the Sedins?

I'm thinking the latter.

Lol. No i wasn't trying to. You know what i never even thougt about that until you mentioned it. Lol. My reasoning is that they haven't travelled much since the end of Feb, and had a couple of days off after the Montreal game.
