On a positive note.... Atlanta, Tampa Bay, and Colorado all won yesterday.

Yanni the Danni, you let us down. We needed that win in Boston so badly, to keep our Stanley Cup hopes alive. But in the clutch, your glove was too slow and the puck whizzed by you twice. And you, Okposo. you let us down 2. you did nothing. and where was dougie weight and where was ricky d. in the old days, they would be out there. the architect weeps. worst in the NHL. chico weeps too.

Rangers battling for the 8th playoff spot and first round elimination, 22nd pick. Isles looking at #1 or #2 draft pick. Neither team will have anything to show for this season except their picks. Have a nice day.

Islanders are the worst team in the NHL! Last place. Last. And they won't get Tavares. And if they do, he will stink, just like Bailey. What happended to Okposo being rookie of the year. Guess not. He is overrated. And Ricky D is signed for the next 87 years. How do you spell "salary cap"? A laugh a minute. he, he he!

Great game. We showed guts and energy. And we lost. Not a bad thing as we plan for the future. I believe Coach Gordon needs to reduce Mark Streit's minutes. Why run up his minutes and increase his chances of injury in what are essentially meaningnless games? The guy has proven his worth. We need to keep him fresh for next year! Great signing by Garth Snow. Just my two cents.
