@Roy Batty  Gotten is perfectly acceptable.. that's the Anglo-Saxon form of the word and only fell into general disuse in England in the 20th Century.. it's still in use in much of the North of England and also the North-East of the US.  Got no problem with 'Forgotten', eh?

@MarcRader I thoroughly agree on the Hawks' legs going: I think it started midway through the 2nd. It wasn't helped by Q effectively benching Bickell and Bollig and seriously reducing Shaw's TOI. The big guns were being asked to play 20+ minutes on the 2nd of a back-to-back against a very physical StL team.. not a recipe for success

@Donald Segretti Surely you're not suggesting a Hockey player might conceal an injury? Seriously, though, I've not noticed that much of an issue with Pirri's skating, but then again maybe watching Handzus lumbering around out there has dulled my perception a little!

12 months ago on Is Brandon Pirri in Trouble?

Reply

 @HockeenightsCT It does, and good point about Dallas. What it also underlines (as if we needed it) is that Q doesn't trust Pirri in close games (and the Dallas game was far tighter than Phoenix). I think the only way we don't see Pirri shuffling back & forth from RFD till the Deadline is if someone gets long-term hurt or Bowman does a "John Scott" and trades one of Q's little buddies out from under him.

I'll agree with that. But if they're asking the question and gettiing stonewalled/fobbed off then they sure as hell aren't talking about it as much as they smirkingly report "We'll see=Yes in Q-Speak". I undestand the circumstances they operate in but I seriously doubt a Kuc or Sassone or Lazerus or Myers will get the boot just for asking some questions.

 @admused I watched that happen in 1999. Threw a beer can at the TV, stomped off to the store to get a bottle of gin, my brother and I didn't exchange a word until we were halfway down it. Have never seen either goal since.  That's how much that upset me.

 @Bullitt315  @wardrums the Soccer starts at a reasonable time here (unlike Hockey.. damn inconsiderate!) The refs can't really call a cross-check a high-stick.. any more than they could call Too Many Men an Interference penalty. maybe a gap in the rules that needs looking at..

 @wardrums thanks, mate. The cross-checking rule doesn't allow for a 4 minute minor (unlike the high-sticking rule). And yes, I liked 20 in particular.. that play where he squeezed his way through two d-men to get a shot in.. Brandon Saad is the truth

 @Tinmann Thanks! I, personally wouldn't say Hossa was ineffective: he was a +5 on Corsiand his pass for Toews' goal was a thing of beauty (he also played very sharply on both scoring PPs.. including a great keep in to set up the second goal) But yes, he drew the Zetterberg assignment last night and that cut down on his dash a bit. Plus he's having the usual Marian Hossa playoffs experience.. he'll be invisible for a couple of games but can still pop up and win one in the blink of an eye.
