I'm predicting a Ritchie goal tonight. 3rd line has looked good.
Lets go to Vegas!!!!

Bab's was right about Holl, he has turned into a complete disaster.  Trade Holl and Ritchie for a sack of magic beans, or a can of tomato soup.

whats a matter with the Woll?

As someone who has spent a lot of time in AZ over the past 10 years and seen many hockey games at Gila, I believe there is a future for the team.  When they were located downtown at what is now the Talking Sticks Arena, they were drawing a lot of fans.  However, I say this knowing that Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, etc. are growing at an exponential rate, the most growth in the US over the last several years. Corporation after Corporation are moving there, the population is growing and many of these people are from hockey areas of the N.E.  In 5 more years with a new arena in a better area, it will work. 
But then again I could be wrong.  Hockey in a desert can work, cause it works in Vegas, albeit for different reasons.

I watched a portion of a game Villeneuve played in a few weeks ago.  The guy is out on the ice for almost the entire game, my main observation outside of his calm play is he needs to get up to speed with his skating, its not NHL quality right now.

To bad about Semien, I guess Ray is gone as well.  Time for one of our prospects to step up not named Manoah.

Reports of his death were greatly exaggerated?
Turns out he was only "mostly dead", and they were able to bring him back because of his true love for Kase.

You have not acknowledged my Princess Bride reference, and it disappoints me.

I was waiting to see how Kampf played tonight, and if he was struggling I was going to break out "It's okay Kampf, you've been mostly dead all day"
He took a pretty hard Czech to the heed.

There was  Le Biftheque out by the airport.  I think they had on by the Toronto airport as well for a time.
Great Steakhouse in the day.

I lived in Montreal for 5 years in the 80's and loved every minute of it.  Nice people, very nice people, great resto's, old city. Lots  of great memories. I am glad you liked it Arn.  Try Quebec City next time.

Campbell -for keeping us in it.
Brodie -for some nice stick work

Yeah Ritchie is doing nothing for me.  Blindly firing the puck back to the point where there isn't a defenseman ready to take the puck leads to a quick out of the zone.  I don't care for his game.  I really don't like him in the top 6.
Ritchie, just looks like a lumbering fellow who is about a second behind everybody.  He doesn't even really  bruise with that huge torso of his.

Well Ho-Sang scored a beauty in OT today. Look forward to seeing him in 2022 for the Leafs.
That goal was McDavid sick!

At this point, any of Ho Sang, Seney, Gogolev or Steeves would be a vast improvement on Ritchie.
Agreed, I would like to see Steeves get a look, by the way Scott is close to returning to activity so Goalie time is going to be even more competitive.
