I know what you mean. I've got Pronger in my hockey pool and don't know if I should dump him or include him in a trade. He's done nothing in nine games

no, no there definitely isn't.

sundin/mccabe/belfour/allison/lindros/kaberle/o'neill/tucker/et al. comprise a team that is fun and entertaining to watch.
I'm sorry, but...

Newsflash to leafs fans:

Kaberle sucks.

He's been on the team for what, 5 years now? His style of play hasn't changed.

When he gets the puck, he dumps it, passes it, or turns it over to an opposing player (usually the latter). The apocalypse will be upon us before the man shoots the puck, even if he had an empty net -- and even then, the should would probably be in the direction of oncoming doom, rather than the net, to try and persuade doom not to bodycheck him. He can't take a hit. He isn't even that good. He gets in the way of other Leafs players. I have yet to figure out why they haven't cut him. But, you know, other than that. No doubt there will be some sort of protest that he's a good player, but I've never seen him play anything better than sub-par. So, yeah.

Everything about that picture is awesome. First, there is Mike Ribeiro (I have a love/hate relationship with that guy, but it's mostly hate) having his on-ice party. Then there's the ecstatic fans. Have a gander at the guy above the Cisco Systems sign! He just looks as though he's screaming "SACRE BLEU!" or something of the sorts. That guy is awesome. The guy to the left of him...either he's in calm meditation, thanking someone for that miraculous OT win, or he's a dejected Flyers fan. What a wonderful moment snapped on camera!

Pity Theo is playing like a pansy.

I really dislike the Sens...I can't really explain it fully, but I think it has a lot to do with Daniel Alfredsson's annual whinings when they get the boot in the first or second round.

I'm jealous of the people in that picture. They are serious hockey fans who have put a lot of faith into their team. They are now reaping the rewards of team devotion. They have been with the team through hard times and now can see a sparkling light when looking into the future. Their confidence is high and their expectations great.

If one would take a picture after the Oilers scored a homegame goal, you would see something different on the faces of the fans. Their faces would be of sustained cheer. There would cautious optimism. After all, the opposing team could score 3 goals in the last 6minutes of the game. Whatever can go wrong will go wrong. If you think that there is no way hell that the Avalanche can score on a harmless looking centering attempt, think again because Radek Dvorak can help by putting it in his own net.

But not to fear. The day is coming where fans in Edmonton will able to display the blinding optimism currently being enjoyed by fans of the Canadians.

Nice observation about the Habs fans!

I heard something funny on TSN the other day - the broadcaster said one of the new guys on the team doesn`t feel like a true Canadien yet because the hometown crowd hasn`t booed him yet!

Don't worry boosterjuice! I'm sure that day will come soon. For a while, as you said, it was disappointing to be a Canadiens fan. But now look at them - number four in the league and at the top of the Northeast division! (Yes, the new rules have helped a lot, but it was inevitable considering the fantastic impact Claude Julien made in the team last year.)

Give them some time to make the necessary adjustments to this new league, and Oilers fans will having something to cheer for as well, I'm certain.
