Tamara the problem is that "..." in the link title, I believe. Click on the link and it will put you on the right page where the image is. Just copy the the exact address from the browser address box to your signature, instead of the one with "...".

Or copy it from here:

"http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y67/nba_street_vol/MNCountdown7.jpg"

(without double quotes of coarse)

I did it but it doesn't work. I need one of your guys help. I did what you told me Chocolate

Okay Tamara let me give it a shot. I think this is what choc. wants you to try

First do a quote on Choc.'s post,,, then edit ( remove) the quotation marks on both sides of that link.

When you hit the preview post botton below you should see that link in RED letters.

If its in RED,,, then click on that link and you should see the banner appear.

Now copy it in the brosser at the top of that window and paste it to your sig.

If that doesnt work then try adding to both sides of the link.

Moral of the story: If you have wild animals going through your garbage, leave a bag of dirty diapers out one night. They’ll never come back. And if you’re wondering about the mess I have to clean up on my patio now…don’t. It’s snowing today. I’ll deal with the mess in spring time.

Have you just borrowed this sentence from Peddie? I hear he met with Cliff Fletcher yesterday to talk about the Laffs future. Good metaphor...

WHAT’S UP DOC?

Even though the Leafs are keeping their line-up fairly intact from their whooping on Tuesday and that Price who has a perfect record against the Leafs so far is starting in nets, I still can’t help but feel worried. I’m not sure if I’m worried about the line shuffling of Carbonneau and how the lack of confidence may now spread to two lines instead of being quarantined in one. Maybe I’m worried about the Leafs wanting to make up for the dismal effort on Tuesday and how tough and competitive they will be tonight. Perhaps I’m worried that given the standings, our :rivals: will want to hurt us with injuries to our top line (wouldn’t be the first time TO uses cheap tactics). What ever the case, I can’t help but have an uneasy feeling about tonight’s game. I’ll feel much better once we have a 10 goal lead, or I hear the final whistle blow with a W next to our HABS.

This morning however, I was blessed with a tranquil moment, who’s memories will go a long way in keeping me sane and calm through out the day in anticipation of the puck drop. I though I would share it with you all, because I’m sure I’m not the only one who is jittery about this one.

Picture this…I tumble down the stairs as the buzzer goes of on my alarm clock. I desperately keep chugging towards the coffee pot (which has been conveniently located in the furthest part of the kitchen), only to find to my horror that there is no coffee ready. I figure there is a glitch with my automatic timer, and in a half conscious phase I attempt to fix it. I poke she who must be obeyed and tell her to be on time tomorrow morning.

Following a throbbing bruise to my shin, I proceed towards my contingency coffee crisis plan and decide to make some of the instant “abra cadabra” stuff. I nuke my self a glass of water, reach for the instant coffee and learn a valuable life lesson. Anytime you pick upgot a jar, NEVER grab it from the cover…just in case. I quickly find out that some dingis did not put the top on all the way. As a result, now I’m picking coffee crystals off the kitchen floor. Keep in mind I still have not had a cup of coffee, so I’m focused and sluggish like a baby who’s just learned how to use his opposable thumbs. Furthermore, I’m clutching my toe that just got crushed by a dropped jar, and I’m trying to figure out who the culprit is that left the jar open. Once I recall that I’m the only coffee drinker in the house, I quickly abandon my witch hunt.

The story has a happy ending….I finally get my cup of coffee. Mind you there is a myriad of foreign objects floating in it, resulting from “mystery crumbs” getting mixed up in to pile of black stuff off the floor, but it still feels like being reborn. I step towards our patio door to appreciate the view outside, and notice a little rabbit. There he is trying to hop through the snow like a fat man in a potato sack race, and it quickly finds my patio as a haven from the white devilish powder. It sniffs around, and discovers the garbage bag I had left outside the night before. My first instinct of course is to shoo it away before it tares into the bag and makes a huge mess, but I decide to let him go about his business as I enjoy the rest of my coffee.

The rabbit (let’s call it Terry for arguments sake) trots towards the bag, slips on small patch of ice as a face plant startles him. I’m already feeling much better at this point. Terry gets to the bag and start nibbling on its side to get to the good stuff inside. He finally gets the bag open, and he’s reached the rabbit holy grail. Finally some food after months of the no carb, all snow diet! He digs in, finds a bunch of wrappers, and tears into those. Once he gets through the first one and finds HLD junior's “droppings” inside, he drops everything and runs off like the wind.

Moral of the story: If you have wild animals going through your garbage, leave a bag of dirty diapers out one night. They’ll never come back. And if you’re wondering about the mess I have to clean up on my patio now…don’t. It’s snowing today. I’ll deal with the mess in spring time.

I'd gladly give it away for a win against the Leafs. Arrogance will overflow tomorrow around here. I'm sure they're dusting off the Cup as we speak. :lol:

Senators 5, Panthers 4 - RECAP

Dany Heatley had two goals and an assist in his return from a shoulder injury and the Ottawa Senators beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 Thursday night.

Christoph Schubert, Joe Corvo and Chris Phillips also scored for the Senators, who went 3-8-0 with Heatley out with a separated shoulder. Jason Spezza had three assists and Wade Redden finished with two.

David Booth, Nathan Horton, Brett McLean and Olli Jokinen scored for the Panthers, who had won three straight.

Heatley's second goal of the game put Ottawa in front 5-4 at 7:26 of the third period. Panthers goalie Tomas Vokoun got a piece of Redden's shot, but Heatley was right there to tap it in as it fell behind Vokoun's left leg.

Vokoun finished with 29 saves, and Ray Emery also made 29 stops for the Senators.

The Panthers controlled the first period, but were outscored 4-3 in the second.

Booth gave Florida the lead with a power-play goal late in the first period, as the Panthers built a 16-5 advantage in shots.

Heatley tied it 58 seconds into the second, and Schubert and Corvo scored as Ottawa went in front 3-1.

McLean then scored on the power play just before the midway point of the period and Horton tied it again at 10:04.

The scoring didn't stop there as Phillips gave the Senators a 4-3 lead at 13:31, and Jokinen scored 46 seconds later.

Notes: The Panthers are 13-6-0 in their last 19 road games after starting the season 1-8-1 away from Sunrise, Fla. They set their franchise record with 18 road wins in 1993-94, their inaugural season ... Vokoun made his 50th start of the season in goal for the Panthers ... The 11 games Heatley missed are the only ones he has missed as a member of the Senators ... The Senators recorded their 21st consecutive sellout wtih a crowd of 19,435 ... Ottawa announced it has signed president and chief executive officer Roy Mlakar to a one-year contract extension.

JERRY JERRY JERRY!

We got over confident…as feared by many, and confirmed by the bunch of floaters last night. We got over confident, and now we face dropping to sixth with another loss to the re-energized Senators on Saturday, when we play them in Ottawa. A team pushing for first lost to a team barely out of last place. We could have put them out early, with Toskala looking shaky, but we got fancy. I hate to say it but the outcome of the game was deserved by both teams.

That’s the bad news. Here’s the good stuff. MN dropped two more points, and we’re still in 4th on NL standings as well as point standings. With a win on Saturday we can get within one point of the Sens once again, and instil some fear into them with two consecutive “W”s.

You can bet your mortgage that the HABS loss last night to the Leafs was as embarrassing to us, as the 8-0 loss was to the Leafs. All logic would state that we will be playing one heck of a game on Saturday. Unfortunately this is the same logic that would have had last night’s game as a no brainer win for the HABS.

Life goes on, the season goes on and we will bounce back like we always do. Only two questions remain:

1) How quickly will we bounce back? Right away or after a couple of losses?

2) When is Koivu booked for the public hanging?

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not jumping on the “trade Koivu” band-wagon. However following his embarrassing play on the blue line last night with 30 seconds left, I’m worried what the media and fans will do to him. In case you missed it, or turned off your TV, or simply erased all memories of last night’s game, let me refresh your memory on what happened:

With a little over 30 second left, we have our goalie on the bench already with Koivu as the extra attacker with Kovalev’s line. The Leaf’s are gifted the puck once again and try to clear the zone. Markov intercepts it right outside of the blue line and patiently waits for everyone to clear the zone. Here is where the magic happens.

As everyone is expecting Markov to pass the puck to Komisarek behind him, Markov notices a huge gap along the blue line with 3 red jersey lined up and only two white ones in front of them (but at a distance). So as the smart play maker as he is, Markov makes a cross ice pass to the guy on the other side of the blue line, thus catching the three white jerseys going the opposite way on the opposite side of the ice off foot. Smart play, that should lead to an odd man rush with a good 5-6 second before more white jerseys arrive, which should lead to a a few good scoring chances.

The problem is the guy on the other side of the ice…#11. There is 21 thousand plus people in the stands watching the puck like hungry vulchers. Two benches have their eyes glued to the play with elevated heart rates, and 9 people on the ice playing at 110% trying to win/tie the game. The only one not watching is Koivu. He wasn’t looking up ice, trying to communicate with someone…nothing. As far as I could see, he had his back completely to the play and the puck, and turned around when he saw the puck hit the boards he was gliding towards.

As a Captain, as a player, as a veteran player, as the sixth player on the ice this is simply and utterly unacceptable. I’m upset, disappointed and disgusted with Koivu for that play (which incidentally leads to the 4th TO goal). However I’ll forgive him because I appreciate his contribution to the team over the decade. I’m not going to begin scrutinising him, and judging his whole career based on one play. The loss is far from his fault, and the game was not lost on that one play. But try explaining that to the blood thirsty bunch that look for reasons to hang him out there to dry. Unfortunately he’s not helping him self by being a lazy floater. He works hard more often than many others on the team, but as the Captain he has to work hard ALL the time. That is all I expect from him, and he clearly failed that last night.
