NJ better stand their ground, because they looked like they were skating through a Senator war zone tonight.

Jacque Martin is an idiot. Why wasn't Spezza in the lineup right from the beginning? Did you see Coach's Corner today after the game? They were going over Spezza's stats, and there's no way he should have been playing in the minors. It's all about $$$. And then you have Martin playing his performance down after the game. What a tool.

I agree... they should have put Spezza in earlier, give the team the rookie boost.

My sister served Jacque Martin once at Joe Fortes in Vancouver, and said he was a tool. I guess she was right. That interview was a disgrace. If I were Spezza, I'd be right pissed.

An inspiring speech by Roger Nielsen might give them that extra drive to succeed... but then again, chizip brings up an undeniable point.

Ottawa... the Capital of losing

Roger Nielsen is legendary. You know why the Canucks (and now the rest of the Canadian) fans started waving white towels at playoff games, right? Roger Nielsen started it all. He was the coach of the Vancouver Canucks back in '82 when the Canucks went to the finals. The night when they were blown out (or was it bad officiating, I can't remember) Roger Nielsen, in all his legendary glory, took a stick and placed a white towel over it, waving it around: "We Surrender" was the statement. It was classic. After that, an entrepreneur sold white towels to everyone who came to the games, and the tradition was born. And now teams all across the country do it. All started by Roger.

He just received the Order of Canada as well. Congrats, Roger. Hope you get better soon!

But no, I don't think so.

The tradition started after "outrageous" officiating... Roger waved the white flag, since there was no point in even trying.

Or maybe, he was sick of the revolution!

He was in remission for the longest time, wasn't he? Well, here's to him getting better!

By all means, continue, Chizer. It's been a good luck charm since you started it back when the Canucks defied your rhetoric

Please, continue...
