I just skip the posts.
RD and I have been frequenting boards like this for 16 years or so.
He has been one of my favourite dudes historically.
Great guy, funny, intelligent talk, a fan, a cyber pal...
Braying donkey is an excellent description of what we see now.
Sadly to say I skip over all his posts as well.
Sorry to say but truth!
I'm actually surprised he gets so much response, he's laughing behind his keyboard folks.

1) they flip the switch against the Hawks and show everyone that yes they can flip that switch when they want, as they did against Boston, Detroit, and the Blues. I would appreciate if they kept it flipped for a few games in a row. I also still think they played quite well in the Coyotes game but lost because of poor goaltending and the Coyotes capitalzing on the few chances they had. The switch was flipped on.
2) they are unable to flip that switch and get creamed. The game is a wake up call and that they need to start working on things now.
I honestly expect #1 to occur for the 18 skaters. I'm not sure what will happen with the goaltending (assuming it is Luongo getting the start).

The problem is not just the Sedins getting no respect from the league but also Kesler. Cullen slashed Kesler's stick away and got a few scoring chances out of it. Most of the time, it is a penalty but just not last night. Kesler got a highstick and no call again. The league is just so consistently inconsistent.

That said though , that is a cheap hit. Suspend him for a game . He had the knee on knee with Zetterburg earlier this season, so his intent is something that should be called into question.

When watching the game, I'm trying to expand my focus of view from just the Canuck player to entire game and liberties were taken by both teams that were not called.
However, that penalty on Burrows was BS. But, we should be able to kill a 25th ranked powerplay.
You know you got a problem when both your tender and the defenseman (Rome) go for the shooter and whiff.
Something that was just brought up by a Team1040 caller, the Kesler low bridge on Clutterbuck
This is bad shit and has no place on the ice. If the Wild actually mattered in the NHL, there would be some major repercussions from this.
What the fuck was Kesler doing???

Chicago is a test. Let's hope the good guys pass. Or maybe an ass-kicking is in order.
While the Sedin may not have proven that they can elevate their game in the playoffs...
( I mean, how could they? The past two seasons they have been among the top five players in the league. If you elevate from that... what are we talking here? Wayne Gretzky at his best? )
... they have still done fairly well over the past three playoffs, imho, averaging roughly a point per game.
Here are their post-lockout playoff stats:
06/07 12 2 2 4
08/09 10 4 6 10
09/10 12 3 11 14
10/11 25 3 19 22
06/07 12 2 3 5
08/09 10 4 6 10
09/10 12 5 9 14
10/11 25 11 9 20
The slight drop in production in 10/11 was almost entirely the result of the final seven against Boston, when Henrik was playing injured. If you do not count the seven games against Boston, the 10/11 numbers look like this:
Henrik: 18 2 19 21
Daniel: 18 10 6 16
And yes, I do realise that they should have delivered against Boston as well (at least Daniel managed to score four points against them), but I think it was obvious for all that Henrik was not really in game shape.
This year they seem to be cruising into the playoffs while preparing for them, so I hope they will be in perfect shape when the time comes and the chips are down. I believe this team can make at least as big a splash as they did last year!
