I hope Sundin plays Saturday against the Sens because if so we're going!
The Islanders are debuting their new phenom Okposo tonight. I saw him play in Bridgeport a couple of weeks ago, and MAAAAAAAANNNN, he sure can stand around. We've been needed a new stand arounder, so I'm looking forward to it.

Now, where should I turn my playoff loyalty too?

ESPN showing that goal Toskala gave up repeatedly. They need to stop. I've given up one of those before and it's near the shittiest feeling you can have. At least they won the game, which takes the sting off a bit.

I still say Toskala is a decent goalie, he's way more consistent than Raycroft and if he had a better defense in front of him they probably wouldn't be in this situation right now...

Other than Sundin he is the only other player out there who actually looks like he cares most nights.

Yeah I think he's a good keeper honestly. I'm not sure what's going on with TO anyway, it seems like they ought to be a better club than they are.

At least it wasn't this goal...

All Leafs fans have been saying that for decades

We don't know why they continue to be crap, they just are and yet we still follow them.

What the hell happened to Ottawa? Yeesh and Montreal are playing way too damn good.

Go Whalers!

I remember seeing that live and absolutely flipping out at how huge an upset that was...Belarus over Sweden in the Olympic quarter-finals?! Belarus' goalie (whose name escapes me right now) played a lights-out game against a team with the likes of Sundin, Forsberg, Naslund, and the Sedin twins.

The best part was that the winner played Canada in the semis, so instead of playing a strong (at least until that game) Swedish team, we got to play Belarus. The game was played at 2:00 pm when school was in, so the principal put a radio tuned to the CBC up to the PA mic and broadcast the game into every classroom until school let out in the 2nd period. Canada won something like 7-1, then won the gold in the next game.

EDIT: I also read somewhere that Belarus was so sure of losing to Sweden that they had already booked their flights home that night and packed their luggage, then had to cancel everything, unpack, and pack again the next day after the semis

Two-time all-star, you probably never heard of him because he played most of his career in Edmonton.

Come to think of it, this might explain quite a bit about the Oilers of the 90's...

That Sweden team was loaded, really amazing that they lost. If you think about it that's probably as big an upset as the '80 miracle game, but doesn't get the attention because it's Belarus over Sweden rather than USA over USSR. Wasn't Salo on the Sweden team that beat Canada on that Forsberg shootout goal? I can't remember but I think he was.
