- Comment on About last night … (2014-04-23 09:23:35)
You have to understand the “why” behind Ron MacLean’s noxious eruption last night. He is simply the wellhead of the vast underground reservoir of misery that is Leaf nation. A nation of envious losers reduced wishing their execrable hockey existence on the fans of other Canadian teams. A nation that has to be fed BS about “unfairness” in an uncompetitive four-game sweep of a series. Why? When did the freakin’ Tampa Bay Lightning become the darlings of our country? They’re not – of course but they do serve a purpose as the vectors of spreading despondency to those fanbases still singing Oh Canada with playoff passion.

Not too get too picky but N. Meningitis is bacterial not viral. I say this not to be a know-it-all but because there are vaccines available. Those of you with kids should strongly consider this option for your pre-teens.

So the great plan is to win our games 1-0 from now on? What a puny plan.......

Cool pairing Gorges and Beaulieu - that way the rookie gets the blame for the "character guy's" glaring mistakes.

The swarm was conceived to compensate for our soft shrimps' inability to win one-on-battles in our D-zone. We better size-up over the summer or else........

The critical factor is time. Since the opposing player went outside/inside Thrower was left with milliseconds to decide how to hit and adjust his body accordingly. I am against all hits to the head just like I am against all high-sticking but we all realize that sometimes it's an unavoidable accident. He should be punished nevertheless in order to assure that all players take responsibility for the hits they make. However, this type of hit is circumstantial and all defence men (even Lady Byng candidates) will occasionally infringe.

Hey with DD's "prowess" on face-offs we'll need fourth liners who can play without the puck.

Politics was always a vile endeavour because of corporate cash and greed not because we're running out of retired farmers FFS. Next you'll be waxing nostalgic for kitchen-bound womenfolk - right?

You honestly believe Ottawa is paying any kind of special attention to DD?
