Thanks for this, Kevin. Posts like these are what makes this blog such a great read and what keeps me coming back after every game.

Totally right. Gotta think long haul.

I'd let Del Zero go for a used puck bag.

Never mind where Hank left off, I'm hoping Cam picks up where HE left off!
Excellent game analysis.
Anyone else f'n thrilled to see lines actually be given the chance to develop?
Zucc is a rare combo of heart and skill. Works as hard as Cally and seems to be reading the ice like Richards. Wow.
Props to AV and his staff. Looking forward to seeing the team tested in the games ahead.

F me...Nash, Cally...what's next? Oh I know, Del Zero returning to the lineup.
Hey AV - you better work, bitch!
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Callahan Out 3-4 Weeks With Broken Thumb
That was one of the highlights of the game for me. Awesome moment.

As someone who was calling for the C by the end of 24's rookie season, I could not agree more. He's obviously not Messier but I can't really think of anyone else who is as dyed in the wool blue as Cally. I'd love to see 24 in the rafters someday.

For the love of all that is sacred, if Hank is dealing with a concussion get him the hell off the ice now. I feel like he's been so screwed in not being able to lift the cup yet despite his stellar career. Permanent brain damage in the name of trying to salvage a pretty terrible season would be criminal. And even if we win the cup this year there's no way it would have been worth it if his health is compromised. He's got a baby at home who needs him much more than the franchise does. Not so sure it would be a bad thing for this team to not be able to rely on him anyway.
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Is Lundqvist Playing With a Concussion?
I wasn't able to watch the whole game and I gather that I missed a lot of bad play but it seemed to me that some of the 'heart' that has been missing from this team started to show through a bit last night. Not talking about the usual suspects either. Answering a goal with a goal, standing up for your goalie, and best of all putting one in the back of the net seconds after Hank makes a series of saves to keep them in the game. A bit more of that could go a long way toward compensating for Gabby and Richie's lackluster play...maybe even wake them the F%*# up.
11 months, 3 weeks ago on Video: Torts; Players Talk 3-2 Win vs. Devils
As a longtime "blue seats" season ticket holder the increase won't be much for me as mine are already among the cheapest seats in the arena. But that said, the increase in my tix over the past few years has been ridiculous. Sad fact is, there's always someone waiting to take my place so they keep ratcheting up the price. as someone else said, it really is all about putting more suited asses in the seats - people who don't know shit about the game or the team. You can already feel and hear the difference in the arena every year but Dolan can't because the cash register ringing is much louder in his ears. Would love to take part in an organized protest to send a message to that bastard. At the very least a 'we bleed blue' shirt that sends a message would be useful.

How about Cally's move in front of Gaborik's goal? When did David Lee Roth join the coaching staff?

A 20 game minimum sounds brilliant to me. 5 is total BS as is the idea that the effect of the hit should matter. INTENT should be the only measure for assessing the severity of the punishment. And as we can see there are plenty of classless a--holes for whom malicious intent is obvious. Torts is right - total lack of respect. And kudos to him for not tolerating that kind of crap from his players.With so many problems facing the Game in a good year do we really need such incompetency INSIDE the league? Violence is a part of the game but the league needs to get real about this crap because careers and more importantly, lives, are at stake. Maybe His Royal Highness, Cindy Crosby will have to end up in a wheelchair before they do anything about the problem. But we all know that will never happen with the fleet of zebras constantly on watch.
