New drinking game for the Summiteers. Drink everytime we score. You'll thank me in the morning! As a matter of fact, if Allen scores a hattie, I'll buy you all a round. I'll send my credit card info to Ian (hopefully he doesn't have a particularily smart phone). Awww, what the hell, lets make it two! Have fun lads!

- Comment on New Hab Tangradi skates on fourth line at practice; Gilbert demoted to seventh defenceman (2014-11-27 03:34:14)
I would like to respond to many individual posts but the phone app does not allow for that unfortunately. Anyway, I understand all of the consternation regarding DD on the so called first line and, more importantly, the PP. The PP would be much more effective with a palooka like Tangradi or McCarron sitting on the goaltender. The Hawks won a Cup with Bufglyien's ass in Luongo's grill so I'm not sure how that wouldn't work for us. The Brooins have been able to figure it out by sticking Chara in front of the goaltender and frankly, for the most part, Julien is no dummy. With the exception of pulling an erstwhile Norris-ish type defenceman (with a 110 mph slapper) off of the blueline to be an immovavable lump well... that makes some but not absolute sense. Putting a relatively immovable lump in front of the net would cause the opposing PP to play much tighter to the crease and allow Marky, Gramps and PK to howl it from the point. Not rocket surgery imo...

Kind of a meh game tonight (as much as anyone can call a Habs v Brooins game unexciting). Good road win for the boys, regardless of the fact that we beat the Providence whatever they're called. Beak when beakin's due. Not tonight Price was solid, as usual. I was surprised with how many minutes were given to Allen although I understand given the opposition (and by that I mean the lack of). Can't say that I was very impressed but I think that MB views him as a decent throw in for some late season wheeling and dealing. I'll reserve judgement but, at this point, I don't think he provides anything that Tiny can't. MB looked like he was dressed by a pornographic dead clown and Seabass looked troubled. Liking Max Pacs play but the odd head lock and/or facewash scenario in a kerfuffle would be most appreciated. It's not a big deal. Lastly, enjoying Gramps on the blue line, he's not likely to win the Norris but he's what we need at the moment.

Ian, thanks for the update on Alex. That young lad reminds me of Gallagher, not so big but the heart of a lion. Maybe one day, one of the Lions of Winter. John, if you're reading this, please know that we are praying for Alex and your family. I look forward to meeting you at the next summit. In the meantime, if there is ANYTHING that you need, please let me know. Ian knows where to reach me.

Hey Ian, I know that you have recently posted your phone # on a couple of the recent threads and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind posting it one more time. It's regarding an idea that I have that's somewhat, although not totally unrelated to the site. If you'd rather, I can be reached at (720)-245-5769 (Denver) or email@example.com Hope to hear from you soon! The Gumper (Steve)
