not sure what I think about the Breadman
scary shit when putin sticks his nose into your business

he must be scared shitless about his family in Russia right now
I'll take him at his word about the girl -

I will believe the girl if she steps forward and tells her story
but right now it looks like a smear campagin
if she comes forward and tells the world that he's a creep - then we will have to deal with it
as far as we know, the guy has been a gentleman in North America

this was in 2011
how convenient for the russians to put it out now as he seems to be openly against putin

that was interesting last night

pushed around for the first ten minutes and then a never ending parade to the box
not a model for success

the sample size on Shesterkin is still too small, however I am growing a little concerned
that he does not "win" with regularity in this league
he was lights out last season before the car accident
since...
merely a serviceable pro

he let in 1 bad goal on Hayes (terrific shot however) who picked the shortside corner above his shoulder because he did not get himself "big"

those who can afford a "pod" are certainly not Blue Seat fans

It always helps at home... a crowd can influence a penalty call if a referee is thinking about it

I'm more worried about the Breadman
the guy's a pro who bet on himself each step of the way
and has succeeded
not sure what a weak story from a half a world away is doing to him
there must be more that we don't know yet
the only thing I can think of is that he has received real and credible threats
to his family in Russia and he is taking care of business for his family
as he is probably the wealthiest among his family
(I have no idea about his background nor do I really need to know)
But to be this shaken up and a complete and utter lockdown of comment
gets more and more dicy as the days begin to roll
It's less than a week however

Up to ten days to get ones' family affairs in order is appropriate
more than that - then something significant is going on beyond my worst immagination
of being a "free" man in the world

Shesterkin is going to score one day
he's got an incredible set of hands handling the puck

](*,) ](*,) ](*,)
I think Igor ripped his knee up last night
it did not look good at all
he couldn't put any weight on his right leg and
when he was on the ice he reached for the
back of his leg...

the only thought I have on it is that a Devil skated
thru the crease about a minute or two before
and tripped Igor (accidently based on the video)
I don't remember if it was the right leg
but it's possible he tweaked it then and,
the next time he had to plant his foot
it just blew out on him ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

next

I'm surprised and somewhat relieved
seems that Igor only popped his groin
2nd time now... boy needs to stretch far more than he is doing now


better get in touch with Richter to find out how to manage that going forward

Breadman
I feel ya, but
it's 16 days now and without real information it's tough to understand what you're going thru
I need a little more to the story and hope to have answers soon

Lost Opportunity
](*,) ](*,)
could have caught the Pens and have a game in the pocket
I don't expect championship hockey
I expect a step forward in that direction however

again
we come out flat (that is on the coaching staff at this point)
we grab a lead and cannot hold it
damn were we spoiled by having the King in nets for a decade
the goaltending has been adaquet but inept at times ](*,)

--
saw Breadman at practice today on fb
he's not the reason we can't hold leads but he can help increase them

Rangers getting it done :- We shall see how long this lasts

Mika is white hot and just like that he is within 5 pts for the team lead (Buchnevich)

Time will tell :- :- :-

dumping Lemeiux for a 4th round pick :-k
I agree he was a marginal player - but I hope we have forwards in the system
that do more than what he could
(he's a great player for a team on the cusp - I think he could be just like his dad in playoff series)

1st DeAngelo and now Lemeuix :-k
two players who stood up for everyone and anyone

I know
I know
they're a dime a dozen

escaped an embarassment

i don't care what the analytics say
DON'T ICE THE PUCK IN THE LAST MINUTE SHOOTING FOR AN EMPTY NET ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

set plays off a faceoff don't work 100% of the time
but when they do they make you look REAL BAD

:roll:

just get to the fucking red line and chip it in

alright mofos
line up and stick out your arm
take the jab
and let's move onto better things

(seems like the team procured J&J - I also got J&J - so if it's good enough for the blue shirts it's good enough for me)
