What do you guys think of the Hall suspension?

I'm fine with it. Thought it was more of a hip check gone wrong, but you're responsible for your body, and 2 games is whatever.

I don't think I've ever seen a more boring game. And I used to watch the pre lockout Devils.

I hope tonight isn't as awful.

Whats up with the freak injuries lately. Dude in the Peg gets his femoral artery sliced, Malkin into the boards, Anderson's ankle, Karlsson's achillies...yikes.

And oh, we're over 1/4 way through the season and the Rangers still look like shit. Their whole identity last year was grit, grind and be hard to play against. We lost so much of that in the offseason with Dubinsky, Prust, Anisimov, Fedotenko, and now Rupp. Guys are getting tossed around by opponents and there's no one to stand up for them. The team just isn't hard to play against anymore. And if Nash is out long term, we are in big trouble. I stand by my earlier commentary that the Rangers took backward steps in going out and getting Nash, not just with the players they traded to get him, but the players they couldn't afford to resign to accomodate his salary.

Rangers are looking like a shell of the team they were last year. Figuratively and literally (who is injured and/or was injured and sidelined over the past few games? I think it's Nash, Del Zotto, McDonagh, Girardi, Staal, Asham, Powe. Maybe more?)

Though its nice to see the future stars get some ice.

Ridiculous facial hair courtesy of a long playoff run...down 0-2 in the Finals, best of 5/ Lost Game 1 4-3 after hitting the underside of the cross bar with 19 seconds left, lost Game 2 5-3 with an empty netter and pulled out a tough win in OT last night 5-4 to make it a series...2 goals 2 assists for yours truly. Game 4 Thursday night...I'm pumped.

Well.... um... Kid gets 60 goals scored against, for a 707 Sv%. And people think Bryz has epic meltdowns.

Something I find even more ridiculous about the situation:
The unsigned forward spent part of the NHL lockout playing with his brother, Cal, for Magnitogorsk in Russia. According to Metallurg coach Paul Maurice and KHL spokesman Shawn McBride, he appeared in games on Jan. 21 and Jan. 23 – both after the shortened NHL schedule was back underway – which meant that waivers were required before O’Reilly could return to the NHL as a free agent midway through the season.
…. That would have created a potentially disastrous situation where the Flames had to send two decent draft picks to Colorado before losing the rights to O’Reilly immediately afterwards. Hypothetically, it could even have been the Avalanche that ended up putting in a waiver claim on the player, assuming that they dropped back below Calgary in the standings by the time he hit the wire at the end of next week.

GM Feaster released a statement afterwards saying "well you can interpret the CBA two ways, and we chose to interpret it in the way that meant he wouldn't have to clear waivers, but the Avs matched the offer anyways so no further comment." Then the league released a statement saying "we agree that its a non-issue because the Avs matched the offer, so no further comment." So Feaster took a huge gamble based on his interpretation of the CBA and the league declined to offer a definitive statement on the matter.

Yes Feaster, I'm sure your good intentions would have explained to Flames fans how you lost a 1st and a 3rd for nothing while simultaneously losing ROR to waivers. Brilliant.

Ok , the more I read into the nitty gritty the more it seems like Feaster was right. Still.. Not really prudent to gamble with a high first rounder.

might head to MSG tonight to check out the Flyers at Rangers. First will be the obligatory "wait until the last minute" SubHub crawl.
