    Many of these questions undoubtedly show that the fans are passionate and knowledgeable about their team and hockey in general.
    I don’t have a question; I simply would like to suggest that Tom Renney follow Sam Weinman’s lead and have an identical Q&A with the fans on I wonder why events like this never happen? Is it because Tom is used to giving the same repetitive, clichéd lines to the media that are never really specific and don’t really answer the question?”

    G – they did it already. the entire staff was there.

  2. I obviously like Staal alot but…
    At this point, I’m not sure it even matters who is in or out of the line-up. Nothing changes, it doesn’t matter, who’s sick, has backspasms, has a black eye.
    If Shanny was out with spasms, would that mean the team would play worse?

  3. Strudwick needs to sit. He’s playing too much. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I might actually prefer Malik back in there as long as he’s plays with Mara. I don’t think Strudwick can handle playing everyday.

  4. I couldn’t bring myself to come to the board until now, since it would obviously be an overwhelmingly negative sentiment, as it very well should be. I just had to keep away for a while, but luckily BSKUL is here to make me laugh (in his post last night).

    My question to you, Sam, on a lighter note – Where do you sit in MSG? I looked near the goal last time I was there during an intermission, but then remembered there is another press area below the announcers, near where I have previously sat.

    I can’t believe Renney keeps going with the same tired combos in the same situations. When it comes to the point that we need to pull the goalie, why can’t playing time be based on who was playing well that game, along with players playing well recently? At least he put Mara out there for a change, but Ward made some unreal saves to keep the game from being 3-2, especially once the ‘Canes were down two men. Last night, my six would have been Jagr, Shanahan, Gomez, Dubinsky, Dawes, Mara. Sure, Drury _can_ score late in games and has done it once this year, but he’s playing like crap overall and I don’t remember him even touching the puck besides the faceoffs. Last night specifically, it’s hard to beat Brind’Amour, and I give Dubinsky an equal chance, since he has looked good on faceoffs. I would not pick Straka or Rozsival because they have shown their propensity to pass when they should shoot on power plays, which a goalie-pull essentially is.

  5. My companion and I really enjoyed studying this blog submit, I was just itching to know do you commerce featured posts? I am all the time trying to find somebody to make trades with and merely thought I would ask.
