Probably wasn't much his fault. Two were wide open and the last i don't think he saw. But anytime you give up 3 that early...

Yeah, it’s our TV cameras. Ballys has them set to low def. This is what it should look like.

Meawhile, I've just watched Bowness trying everything he could to protect a 2-2 lead and ultimately failed.

That orange brick looks much better because it's looking like brown *poo poo* on TV.

Considering how small that place is, there are an awful lot of empty seats. I thought they said that the ‘Yotes were filling the place.

Four goals in four games. Damn, Robertson is like a machine.

Also, Dellandrea reminds me of Stu Barnes.

They did. For one game, the first where fans could get a free mullet headstring.

Crouse looks like a vegan anorexic version of Kessel.

And I've just noticed Nemeth is a Coyote.

If they land Bedard, I wonder if he pulls a Lindros and refuses to go there. Arizona is such a collection of dudes. They’re going to be there for 3-4 seasons. Don’t know why any NHL player with other options would sign there.

They keep saying it is because of TV markets. With no presence in Atlanta (#7) or Houston (#8), they don’t want to abandon Phoenix with it being the 11th largest TV market. Not when every relocation market brought up is something much smaller like KC or is in Canada.

Nah, Houston ain’t that much worse to live in than Dallas and no state income tax. He’ll sign.

I forgot to say… when the Lundkvist trade was made, a bunch of Rangers fans said a big reason for Lundkvist’s bad numbers in NY came from him being paired with Nemeth with Nemeth’s *poo poo* play keeping them stuck in their own end the whole time.

Does “vintage Benn” in one game mean the next game’s Benn is this terrible?

Call me [insert random insult here] but I'm still convinced that this market can be profiteable with much better ownership and management. They weren't ridiculous when they arrived from Winnipeg but then it was mistakes over mistakes, the first epic one was to leave downtown PHX and go to freakin' Glendale. And that sealed a multi-decade contact of suckage at all levels. People in Canada are literally going nust about that sitaution but don't tell them about market size and Monopoly CAD money...

Oh, I can’t argue. They’ve had a bad product for most of their existence. For all of their mediocre seasons, they’ve never drafted even one top flight offends talent. It’s amazing to scroll down this list and see how few decent players they’ve drafted.

Ouch, and amongst the few who had a good NHL carrer, there's quite a significant proportion that had success elsewhere. Didn't even know that they drafted Wheeler.
