GIJAYNE Posted October 16, 2008 Author Report Share Posted October 16, 2008 STUMBLING FORWARD WITH FLASHES OF GREATNESS First off w00t! Notch two more off MN the good guys. A “W” is a “W” is a “W”. For the early going I’ll take them any way they come. Later on in the season however, I would not be too happy with such a performance (say around March). At that point we would all be looking for dominant wins from start to finish. The first half of the season however is when the team gets into high gear and past the All-Star game is when we can become as picky as a vegan in a Steak house. For now let us look at all the positives: - Another win. - A proverbial four point win against a Division rival. - With a loss to the Rangers last night we have closed the gap to the Conference title. - We remain unbeaten. - Our transition game which was dismal against the Flyers was spectacular in the first 40 minutes. - Our PP looks like it will be one of, it not the MOST productive in the league. It’s not moving and working as smooth as a lathered Scarlett Johanson, but the plays are there and the chances are there (Tanguay on the point is working really well). It’s only a matter of time before it goes on a tear. - We dished out another loss to the Bruins, extending their loosing streak to infinity. This memory will burrow its self in that locker room’s collective noggin, and they will now begin each and every match against us with a doubt. The result of the series should and will be similar to last year. - Watching Price is extremely confusing. I am hard pressed to believe this kid so well balanced, is so talented, has a great peanut between the shoulders, has a great work ethic, but he’s barely old enough to buy booze south of the boarder. Why we haven’t signed him for a billion year contract yet is something I would question as an armchair GM know-it-all, if it wasn’t in the hands of Gainey. I’m sure Gainey will ensure we have this kid for many many years to come. Well that’s all I have to say for today. I’ll save some material for tomorrow; mainly the new team strategy (i.e. defensemen jumping up in the play) and the ceremonies from last night (spectacular). PS Welcome to teh team BGL You have accepted your role with open arms, and served that Epsilon booin Thornton what he deserved. Next time however, make sure to break his face or at least collar bone NL STANDINGS OCTOBER 16 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
