Looks like JS Giguere's public shaming of his team paid off and they stepped up big time vs Anaheim.

So Tambellini is out and Craig McTavish and....wait for it....Scott Howson are in.

Understand the firing but the hiring part leaves me a bit perplexed.

Being an Oilers fan is masochistic.

the Rangers win last night eliminated both the Sabres and Flyers from the playoff race.

So now that the Flames have traded J-Bo and Iginla and have lost Glencross and Wideman to injury, they call up seven AHLers and... start to win games. Nothing like playing your way out of a top-five pick when the season is already a lost cause. ffffuuuu.gif Not that I would ever hope for my team to lose; its just frustrating that they piss the season away when they have their full roster and then actually start to put out a consistent effort when they are essentially fielding an AHL team. Even so, it was nice to see the young talent playing to earn a roster spot for next year - Reinhart looks great and I'm hoping Baertschi will be a regular next season. Pretty glad that they re-signed Joey Mac, too. He beasted on the Wild tonight and has done incredibly well for a waiver pick-up.

Nice to see some vintage Kipprusoff in what may be his final few games. Great reaction from the crowd at the Saddledome... it'll be strange to not have him back next year. frown.gif

Glad Montreal carried on its spiral to give the Capitals a little cushion. These final games are huge.

Brad Richards goes silent for most of the season and the buyout talks surface.

then, right during the most important do-or-die stretch of the season, he racks up point after point. clutch, i hope he stays on it.

Nice to knock out the Devs yesterday. Just hope they don't dio the same to us on Saturday...would like it wrapped up by then.

Would LOVE to see Columbus make it and Gabby, Duby, Anisimov, Ericsson and Tyutin light up the Hawks...you think they can beat Detroit to that last spot? They won in the Shark Tank last night.

This shortened season is full of all sorts of WTF. The blue jackets, islanders, and maple leafs......biggrin.gif

Nice to see some variety.

Now that the regular season is almost done, its time to look back on some of the earlier posts in this thread...

Haha, not so much...

I don't think "eating your words" is a strong enough phrase for how you feel about this, NYI

Surprise!

Even so... free Center Ice for the rest of the season would hold my interest.

Yeah, that lasted long

Yep, wrong as all hell, though I wouldn't be surprised with a first-round exit

I'd be OK with an iginla trade. Flames should've gotten rid of him 5 years ago... Now even if he gets moved at the deadline, guaranteed he's a rental who resigns in Calgary.

He will never re-sign in Calgary. frown.gif

When the Ducks got Boudreau I was neutral but he's been pretty damn good. I don't even think we are playing all the well defensively but it hasn't mattered because our offense is such an improvement. Every game a different line is scoring. Last game, we get 3 goals from the fourth line. First couple of games of the season, it was the third. Perry and Getzlaf haven't even been playing all that well. And Hiller has been pretty mediocre. Only problem is that this style of play will not go over well in the playoffs. But at least I'm not bashing my head against the wall like the last few years.

I'm sure the Flyers will wake up shortly. Kings are bizarre, they are playing similar to last year regular season when they squeaked into the playoffs. I figured their playoffs identity was their new one. Can't believe how atrociously Buffalo is playing...esp with Vanek leading the league. Poor Flames fans, same ol shit. I swear that team finds the most amazing ways to lose games early and late.

Incorrect!

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if Ruff got the boot; maybe that team just needs a change. Their defence is abysmal this year.

Called that...

We'll see, think its a little early to say that...because if Nash brings a cup to the Garden, it will taste delicious. If you think thats crazy, I bet some Kings fan was thinking the same thing last year, and being told he was nvts.

totally. I wonder how things would have been different if it was a full season.




I think it would be prudent for the Rangers to offer Stepan a long term contract. First Stepan, then MdZ, then Hagelin.
