Damn, those uniforms are hideous.

I really like what Mara's brought today. Solid, physical, and smart.

Nice. First goal is always key, but considering the circumstances it's more important than ever.

Man, anybody see that hit on Carcillo last night? Well, personally I don't think Komisarek should be suspended. I mean, really, it was the boards that hurt Carcillo, not the hit. If ol' Komi had hit him like that at centre ice, no one would even remember the play this morning. It's unfortunate that Carcillo had to leave, but in the end it's just part of the game. Besides, it's not like he, oh, I don't know, broke his neck or anything. And really, Komisarek's a good guy, so I'm sure he didn't mean to do it. Yeah, the league should just let this one go, I think.
As to the Habs game last night, I had a hard time watching, sort of drifted in and out. Pretty listless, but mostly what I expected. I wouldn't have felt like playing last night either.

Eh, I can't say I'm familiar with this guy's work, but I'm pretty sure that entire article was written sarcastically.
- Comment on Chara will not be suspended (2011-03-09 23:09:08)
In Renaud Lavoie's interview with Max, Max mentions something that's been bugging me all day because NO ONE has talked about it. He says that in the "new NHL," Chara's not supposed to be allowed to get in his way when he's chasing the puck, and he's absolutely right. I'd love to hear someone from the league's front office explain just what in the hell all those rule changes were implemented for if they're not going to enforce them.

I am so, so glad that the NHL has officially declared that you can literally come within inches of killing someone, just so long as its done within the context of a "hockey" play.
I don't know what game of hockey they're referring to, but it sure as hell isn't mine.
- Comment on Fractured vertebra for Pacioretty (2011-03-09 14:50:44)
From Elliotte Friedman's twitter...
Pacioretty agent RT @aschall21 Max sounds like himself. It is going to be a lot of work to heal, but his will power is one of his strengths.
Good luck Max.
- Comment on About last night … (2011-03-09 09:49:07)
I sort of agree, I think. Do I think Chara meant to nearly kill Pacioretty? No. Do I think he deliberately ran his head into the stanchion? Yes. Not a doubt in my mind. I doubt McSorley meant for Brashear's helmet to pop off before his head smacked the ice either. But it happened, and he was held responsible for it, in the same way that Chara should be held responsible for it.
I also agree with you that he won't get anything more than two games. Which makes me sick to my stomach, seeing as how Pacioretty's career is in jeopardy, but hey, welcome to the NHL...
