Beauvellier with another two goal game last night. That's two games in a row! It must drive "Oiler fans" batty seeing Eberle, Barzal and Beauvillier form one of the hottest lines in the NHL. Ohhhh, Chiarelli.

The organization that brought you Lowe's real fans, brings you Paul Coffee's defensive expertise.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Coffey was really good at coasting into the frame while the other team was celebrating a goal :lol:

Why would he use tube skates? He played in the era of the Micron 1070, among many other molded blade-holder skates.

You might have more positive memories of him in a different sweater:

I remember a similar play by Coffey at the other end of the ice (to my left) leading to a goal by who I thought, incorrectly, was Wayne Cashman (though whoever it was was balding), where he simultaneously lifted the puck and jumped over a Russian player sliding across his path, as he was bearing down on goal from the right wing.

I remember it as a thing of beauty, but I could never find the highlight. Anyone recall this?

Bubbles must be happy - Sam Bennett scored his 7th goal in his 50th game of the season. Stalwart

Rangers put recently signed Brendan Smith on waivers. :shock:

A brand new shiny 4 years - $17.4M contract.
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."

The Bubbles crew will tell you that JimBro must have advised the Rangers on that contract.
