Nill gonna obliterate their $10.5M 32 year old goaltenders, NTC for Lehtonen though.

And the flames get a 2nd instead of a first for Russel whom Dallas chose.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

They missed Seguin but even he couldn't help in net :mex:

Love that Calgary only gets a 2nd.

Hope Nashville takes care of business tomorrow.

Lindy Ruff:

The loss is all on me. I should have pulled him sooner, right after the first bad goal I didn't like.

Wonder if Hammer could have helped.

Probably not, Dallas will probably never win anything with the Benn sisters.

lol, this is pretty rich coming from a Canucks fan After all the "Sedin Sisters" chirps we've received over the years. Benn's only leading the NHL in playoff scoring.

Dallas was undone by their goaltending and their D's inability to handle the size of the Blues forwards. Seguin being out didn't help either.

I imagine you'll see them buy out Lehtonen. He was horrid.

Seems like I forgot my winky face

How about this...I wonder if Jamie and Jordie cried themselves to sleep last night. Maybe they ate a bucket of ice cream and talked about how those guys from St. Louis were so mean to them

Can you solely blame the goalkeeping? I believe Lehtonen stole game 6 for them...

Maybe they'd like Miller at the deadline?

Dallas worked their tales off to get home ice advantage and gave up three games on said ice. Goaltending plain and simple sucked. Neither had a save % over .900. Yes, Seguin would have helped. He may have been able to put a few in. Yes Hamhuis would have been a better choice for them than Russell, who they will likely offer a contract too. But nothing would have improved their goaltending other than a goaltender. It was just bad. Sure Lehtonen had a good game here and there but the results speak volumes.

I don't see how they can keep him moving forward but I think moving him will be hard. Maybe they trade him to Calgary for their own 2nd back :mrgreen:

I think it was pretty obvious vic was being tongue-in-cheek even without the winkies.

Now Benn and Seguin will have plenty of time to go on sports radio and talk some more about their roommate living arrangements.

Lehtonen or Let>onein?

Over-chkin 2 rounds again.
Try to focus on THIS year...
