Agreed! I was a teenager when Big Pete played. He was my favorite player at the time. Remember that goal against the Russians?

Wouldn't it be funny if the Sens missed the playoffs by one game, the 2pts they gave up to A. Hemsky and the a Oilers last night. They should have had him pulled in between periods!!! :)

Compare that roughing penalty with the no-calls on Gally the other night!!! ......and Eller! What are ya thinkin' about? They've been calling that stupid penalty all year!!! Just don't use your hand on the face-off for crying out loud!!!

There was a day when consecutive no shows like this team has been handing us, would not have been rewarded with another day off. In my mind, these millionaires should be earning their time off.....it's certainly not because they are exhausted due to effort. Imagine, these guys are on the ice for a total of 6-26 minutes per game spread out over nearly 3 hours. For most of them, even at the lofty level they play, it's hardly enough to break a sweat! Poor ol' Ian and crew have to pay $500 to witness this embarrassment! The GM should have met them at the gate with refunds!

Nothing personal Lad, but Davey is a dandy hockey player...don't understand how you can't see that. His only knock is something completely out of his control; his size. He's unselfish to a fault, as most good centers are (yeah, I played center for 4 decades...so I'm getting pretty long in the tooth!:) "... it's still better than cheering for the Leafs!"

This is a team that needs absolutely all cylinders firing in order to compete with the better teams in the league. I don't believe Therrien has the confidence of the group and if 24CH glimpses of team meetings are any indication, the boys are tired of hearing the same shallow attempts to motivate them (if I hear "pay attention to details" one more time I'm going to vomit!!!). A shake-up is in order. Eller should be playing center and the kid line should be reunited when Galchenyuk returns. It was pure joy to watch them earlier in the season and although they were obviously disbanded to ignite some of the veterans, the experiment is not working and no line is scoring consistently....or more importantly, when it is most timely to do so. The loss to the Leafs, who unfortunately seem to be doing more with less, was the season's low point for me and unless efforts are made to strengthen this lineup, we can expect to be on the outside looking in, come playoff time.

So SICK of the HNIC ( and TSN) love- in! Will we see a little more balanced coverage with the change in networks next year? I sure hope so! "... it's still better than cheering for the Leafs!"
