Great two points for the boys last night and it all started when PK decided to take the team on his back and charge full steam ahead! As most of you know from watching him, he has the ability to take the puck coast to coast virtually every time he touches the puck. That obviously gets under MT's skin because it does not conform with his strategy which is to play a simplistic style of hockey so as to ensure his continued employment. The best coaches in any sport all have the ability and courage to innovate when the type of talent on their team dictates. Rather than taking advantage of PK's unique talent, MT is more satisfied to play the only strategy he knows and is squandering Subban's talent. A talented rushing defenceman seemed to work out fine for Edmonton's Paul Coffey and Boston's Bobby Orr because their coaches were able to innovate and develop a game plan to maximize a unique opportunity. It can't be that hard, other coaches have been able to do it but MT is not that kind of coach. He is one dimensional and unfortunately, has been trying to pound a square peg in a round hole for too long. When you're a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Could you imagine if MT was Bobby Orr's coach back in the day? Orr would be nothing more than a foot note in NHL history...

If MT is not fired by noon tomorrow, I'm handing in my secret decoder ring. That was a disgrace to the uniform....

It's because the game is on the NHL network in the US. That effectively blacks out the whole country as far as the NHL Center Ice package is concerned...

Bill, if you win more than you lose in the playoffs, you win the cup. Check the math.....

Why don't you leave the Obamacare discussion where it belongs, which is not here. Honestly, if I wanted to discuss and/or read about Obamacare, I could easily find an article that deals with the subject and comment to my heart's content to people who might have the slightest interest. I wouldn't go to a hockey site. Get a grip....
