Looks like they will face Boston or maybe MTL, it'll be interesting to see how well they play against the Bruins. (or not.. :sly: )


If they get Lupul back ( concussion ) it might be one hell of a good series and TO will not let their star players get bitch slapped.. A big IF granted ..kind of like the IF's the Canucks are facing? IF Kesler plays at the top of his game and IF Booth comes back and proves RD wrong.. The Canucks got a good shot at winning a couple series.. Maybe a second run at the Stanley.. But I wont be betting on either team to hoist the cup this year :)..

Tambellini gets canned and Oiler nepotism at it's finest.

Press conference in a half hour or so to confirm the firing of Tambellini. Mactavish will be the new GM and Howson taking over MacT's role as senior Vice-president of Hockey Ops.

Look on the bright side...between Jay Feaster and the Oiler Alumni Management Carousel, the Canucks will always have weak division sisters to fatten up stats on from here to eternity...

I was enjoying afternoon tea.

Does no one else see the irony of Americans in a panic over someone blowing things up in Boston?

Not while they're in the sprint to the finish.

Jason Pomminville took a vicious elbow to the head from Dustin Brown last night.

If the league doesn't suspend Brown for the remainder of the season.....well I won't be surprised, but it will be complete bullshit if they do nothing.

Terrible response from Minnesota though, that was just dirty and nobody even tried to give Brown so much as a face wash.....even the Canucks would have done something like send Lapierre over to piss on his skates or something.

Pomminville is not going for a hit, he's tracking the puck. Brown clearly is NOT bracing for the hit. He clearly throws the elbow.

That little bounce back to hit an oncoming player is common in the league these days.

Still, leading with your elbow and connecting with said player's head should (and I say should) mean a suspension.

As with Keith, Brown will be suspended for 5 games OR (# of games in a regular season - # of games played), whichever is less. So, I predict a 2 game suspension where Brown gets some late season R&R going into the playoffs.
