Can't wait to see what Cappy can do with this bunch... I feel bad for Gordon, but something had to give. Plus, I was never a fan of his "system first" and the way he used some of the players (Tavares is way to small to be setting up in front of the net, for example.) Gordon wanted to play a fast, skilled game, but only had slower, not so skilled players.

Yes, it will be interesting for sure. The "interim" label is still in full effect. Sadly, the fans continue to be stuck with a crappy team and an arena that needs to be refurbished or replaced.

Atlanta seems to be having serious, serious attedance issues.

Apparently they broke the record for lowest attendance earlier this season (v. Buffalo, 8820). And then broke their own record again with another game (v. Columbus, 8461). Not sure if it was all time NHL low or Atlanta Thrashers franchise low, but according to Miami Herald beat writer George Richards it was one of the emptiest scenes in Atlanta last night.

Somehow they reported over 10,000 in attendance. Which makes me wonder... is attendance measured by distributed tickets or by in house (scanned tickets)? If so...

This really bothers me. How is hockey supposed to survive in the South if these are the turnouts for the southern division 'rival' games. I mean, it was never, ever this bad until recently, and that's probably because of the fact that both teams have been bottom dwellers for quite some time now.

Sounds like a lethal combo of a shitty team and a shitty economy.

I don't know what to do with the Leafs. Ugh. I've been a family fan since I was a kid, but now I wonder if it's time to shift my loyalties. I like the Canucks, always have, maybe I'll go for them. The Leafs make it so difficult because we've been struggling for so long, big budget and still struggle. Ughness. My fiance is a Hab fan and dare I say I enjoy watching the Habs games more now than I do the Leaf ones

Mysterious penalty last night in Boston as Bryan McCabe served a 2 minute unsportsmanlike conduct bench penalty.

Turns out that the penalty was for an unnamed Florida Panther squirting water on a fan. How nobody saw this on camera, or how we still dont have a name baffles me.

Shouldnt be doing that regardless.

I say stick with the Leafs or join the Habs. At least they're Original Six teams. Fuck the Canucks! Their Jerseys are hideous.
