    I'm always happy to discuss anything from hoops, to hockey, to reality TV with anyone that is polite regardless of their opinion. With that said if you are disrespectful, dishonest, or an extremist type poster I may not waste my time replying to you.

    Kalinin WTF

    learn from staal like the guy said. also this offense isnt setting the tempo at all. its a shame that the 3rd and 4th line always have the consistant energy yet the first two cant do that. drury has been invisible as usual.

    The team seems to be trying a lot harder tonight. They are dominating the shots (27-15) and territory so far

    tremendous second and third periods by this team, especially the third. brilliant move on the part of renney to put prucha in there. thats what happens when you take alot of shots and go hard to the net. nigel dawes has arrived. a bit concerned about henrik but sure he'll come around.

    still need to improve the power play and cut kalinin but have to be somewhat satisfied after today.

    MSG was all fired up once again.

    Dawes is really playing well. I just wish he played more. Last night he only played like 10 minutes while most other fwds are between 12-18 minutes.
    He got his 6th last night after a slow start. If he ever got to play the PP like others I think he could net 20

    I said this once and I'll say it again!! Hey Tom, How you Like Petr Prucha Now ? He is one of my favorite players to watch and makes me happy when he is playing.

    Prucha played really well last night. He has always been a crowd and media favorite so lets hope he can keep it up.

    I was at the game and MSG loves Prucha. He played hard and got rewarded for it. I know the Islanders aren't that good but they played hard and we matched their intensity. It was a fun game to be at, great crowd once again.

    I was hoping Dawes had an assist. I wanted him to have the "GORDIE HOWE HAT TRICK"
