    It is a stupid rule.  How is icing any less of a "delay of game" than throwing the puck over the boards?  At least the puck over the boards is mostly unintentional -- especially now.  Icing is often intentional.

    I hope JM doesn't healthy scratch him again.  How is he supposed to be effective with 94 seconds of ice time after missing a bunch of games?

    The Craig Adams major & misconduct in game 2 was completely overlooked too.  I think I heard something about Hossa should have been suspended for the game that he scored the winning goal against Nashville, but I didn't see it.

    I understand the home ice for the finals part, but basically I was just curious about the draft part.

    And I'm not liking Philly much here, so I'd rather they end up 4th than 3rd, but I'm not sure if that's how the standings work.

    Just trying to figure out the standings here.

    So if SJ loses both in Chicago and is out in four, and Montreal beats Philly in seven, will that mean that SJ will be 4th overall and Philly 3rd or does the regular season come into play here?

    I don't think he'll be back.  He skated like 15 minutes and winced the whole time.  This is supposed to be a psyche out.

    Not like Philly isn't known for rushing back players from injuries though.

    He was out there for the first 5 on 3 and couldn't score.  Only difference was that by the time he did score, the game was in the bag.  He didn't even get away any good shots before his goal -- again, after the game was won.  So play him only when the game is already won.

    He had a terrible game.  If this was his first one, I'd say let it slide, but this is now the regular, not the exception.  I was really happy when the Habs got him (watched a lot of Minnesota games), and he was effective in the regular season, but he's not scoring when it matters and he's putting the team at a disadvantage when he's out there.  He's not a rookie -- he has no excuses.  (Cookie) O'Byrne should not be benched so this guy can play more time.

    We didn't appreciate him on Team Canada.  We just thanked the hockey Gods that Doughty and Keith picked up his slack.

    Confirm or deny -- he was making "chicken" noises at Philly players in the first.  I couldn't tell if that's what he was doing or saying "blah blah blah".

    Either way, he was amazing last night.  I laugh at how upset the Philly fans get about him.  Well, at least he's not a head shot artist like Richards, and Montreal can lose with dignity.  We saw how THAT worked out with Philly.

    I actually felt bad for thinking that during game 2 for all of around 5 seconds.  Then I got over it.  Of course MAB would have to actually NOT LET THE PUCK JUMP OVER HIS STICK or pass along the blue line to no one and just hall off and shoot the puck.

    Philly only has four d.  A slapper high could take out one of them for a couple seconds.  That's all they need.

  • Comment on O’Byrne says he’s in tonight (2010-05-20 16:08:47)

    When the bring the guy to justice, can they also explain to him that any of the Habs of any consequence are Canadian, and their goal scorers are all French Canadian?

    We had no problem going to Pittsburgh for round 2.  No way were we going to Philly for round 3.  There are very few places that I don't feel safe -- Philly is one of them.  Ironically, their fellow Pennsylvanians shared our view when we were talking with some in a bar after game 5.
