  1. Yeah, Butt-Chin is stinking it up…he needs to score whether he’s skating well or not, enough damn excuses already…where’s the “release” the Joe Mich always used to talk about?

    Here’s a link for anybody who needs (another reason) to dislike Skidney Crybaby right now, before he makes his “miraculous” comeback. Remember this dive?

  2. Crybaby’s worst dive was in Game 1 of the Semi’s in 08 that set up the PP goal by Malkin in the final minute.

    I wanted to buy a shotgun, and go and kill every single rat in NYC after that game.

    It didn’t help that we blew a 3-0 lead. Ugh!

  3. LOL! When you search for “Angry Lungfist” on YouTube, those are the results that pop-up!

    Yeah, that one was probably the worst, Orr.

  4. Ok gang, I’m out for a few days. Might check in for Carp’s reviews, but definitely won’t be around for the games.

    Maybe me not seeing them will bring them good luck.

    Catch ya all next week!

  5. I thought that Avery was the best man on the Ranger team last night.

    Outskated, out shot, out played, and what would a Ranger game be like without the inevitable shot hitting the post. They do that so often that they must practice it. They barely stayed in that game, but Buffalo really made them look inept. Callahan gives so much to this club.
