Chris

Cormier, Meyer and Slater have been out for weeks and all we’ve heard is the “pap” sent out by the club. Understand Slater skated the other day. Can you give us anything more in terms of an update on these three and whether we might see one or all on ice in a game this season?

I doubt we see Meyer back… with the Defense already filled the way it is, unless Buffs injury is greater than expected…

Just don’t see Thrashers getting in the playoffs, even if Thrashers go 8-3-2, that’s 88 point, Buffalo and the Rangers would only have to win 7 to stay ahead. I doubt both of them play sub .500 hockey. Still have the leaves and the Hurricanes too.
I am sad, but I’ll still watch and hope for a miracle.

I for one will at least enjoy watching and seeing if the guys can pull it off. The Flyers game reminded me of why I love this game so much. I’m sure my neighbors hate me when I watch games; I can’t help but yell.

Is Ramsey going to let the Volunteer Goalie Coach motivate the guys and let them know about the playoffs or is he going to whisper something in their ear?

“Riddle me this” – Marlarchuk isn’t a volunteer goaltending coach, you idiot.

Ok Counsultant. Do you think the CEO would let a hired consultant motivate the employees at the company picnic. Get a grip JERK.

I know that the question on everyone’s minds is “Will I, Shameus, Global Moderator, still have authority over you internet minions once the team moves to Canada?” The answer is, quite simply, yes.

You see, the operative word in my title is GLOBAL. I am a GLOBAL MODERATOR.

If you say something that I don’t like, I will edit/delete it until it complies with my own personal opinion – which is the most important of all.

If you refuse to comply, I will send you a “virtual warning” via PM.

Good day.

Riddle…YES, the CEO would let a hired consultant motivate the employees at the picnic. That’s probably what he was hired for…JERK.

YEA, you are exactly right. Take out the daily BS of this team and that was a GREAT game to watch. That’s the way we started the year and gave so much hope for the season.

Can anybody explain to me why Postma didn’t get the call and Welch did? Postma has shown more offensive prowess in Chicago this year and seemed to do well in the one and only game Rammer let him play so far. Granted Welch is 25 pounds heavier and an inch taller, but then you’ve got 42 points by Postma to Welch’s 12 (tho’ Welch is plus 12 to Postma’s -4). I liked what I saw of Postma….

At least this is going to be on TV. Let’s see if Kovy sinks us in the overtime again.
