One point wasn’t enough. The undertaker just tossed the first shovel full of dirt on the season.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

One point too many. This season can't end fast enough and hopefully Hitchcock retires from coaching.

Just for yucks, I counted all the times Spezza moved the puck in the second and third periods. 11 times, ten of which went directly to Leafs. I mean... holy *poo poo*. I don't think I've ever seen a player's ability to play basic hockey drop so far so fast.

I also enjoyed how the entire Stars team collectively decided to stop skating with about 12 minutes left in the game. Up to that point they were playing pretty well, passing, slicing through the neutral zone with ease. Then Razor jinxed 'em, and suddenly every Star became Matvichuk on valium. (Obviously that doesn't include the young, fast, energetic players like Dickinson and Honka, who never saw the ice)

I hope Chicago fires Q so we can hire him.

The lady and I thought about going to this game.
But then I took a hard stance against paying $200 each for nosebleeds to watch Lehtonen play.
It would have been her treat too because of my old man, and I still *fargin'* said no LOL.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.

He tends to just blindly whip it to the middle of the ice or on net, which is pretty much always a guaranteed turnover. I think it is his panic play to not just get the puck taken away from him along the boards, but the end result is the same. He did the same thing when he first came here but he also was able to make good plays as well. Now he's lost the latter ability.

He really should retire. I don't really mean that in a "he sucks he should die" sort of way, more in a "it's just sad to see how the game has passed him by" way.

As the resident goalie apologist, the second one Kari did make two saves and no one picked up JVR.

Yes, I saw Kari kick the puck back into the slot twice.


And given where those shots came from, where exactly was it supposed to go?

Do that experiment with Jamie next game.

That's the most frustrating thing about Benn. If you watch his play like that he looks terrible, but then you go look at his point totals and he's a top 10 left wing. So he's not *poo poo*, but man, if he could clean up those stupid turnovers and sometimes just shoot the *fargin'* puck sooner, he'd be way less frustrating to watch even if those things didn't result in any more goals or points.

I wasn't even counting "passes," just "puck moves"... including a surprising number of times someone passed it to him and he just sort of poked at it like a toddler playing with his with peas. Spezza just looks so weak on the puck, and he can't dish out or receive passes anymore. Like he's playing with two broken wrists or something.

Usually right through him.
