I was saying to some guys earlier this season that I wouldn't be surprised to see galchenyuk in the top 10 in scoring before the year is done. Might not happen but I really wouldn't be surprised.

Yup, he's their because he wins faceoffs... a LOT of faceoffs! except the one against Dallas with 10 seconds left in the period...because he was on the bench???

A few observations from last nights game: - Why in the world was DD on the ice with 1 minute left in a 1 goal game? - Why on a 5-on-3 PP, is PK standing still out by the blue line for 20 seconds? It was like a 4-on-3, he wasn't even moving! - Why does every team we play become the best shot-blocking team in the league? The number of blocked shots by the other team is mind boggling every night! Surely they can figure this out!

Might be heading Montreal next weekend. What's the best (reputable) site to pick up a pair of tickets for the Buffalo game? What should I pay for tix in the Reds?

I wish someone would grab the primary camera from the middle school kid running it. He can't keep up with the play!

I've said this before, but until we win some faceoffs on the PP, we will waste 30-40 seconds trying to get control in the opposition end. Put Manny on for the faceoff!

So is the fact that we have yet to play a single 60-minute game a good thing or a bad thing? Against Minny, we still only controlled the game for 20 minutes.

Great article about Malholtra. What I don't understand is why we don't use him on the powerplay. On the odd occasion that we get a PP, the face-off is in the opposition end. They always put out their best faceoff guy, win the faceoff and then we spend the first 40 seconds of the PP trying to regain the zone. We not try to win the first faceoff with Manny, and then if you have good control, he can sneak to the bench to bring out another center. If he stays on, so what, its still better then heading down to the other end of the ice. Why6 won't MT at least try it? What's to lose?

If Buffalo gets relegated to the AHL, what happens to the "bitter" rivalry?

On Sportsnet last night Gary Galley (I think) was ready to suspend him for life! Freidman, McLean and even Kypreos put the blame on Zadorav.
