I'm really curious to see if Lieweke can actually bring some talent here, or if all his bluster will just mean changes to the off-ice product, or if he's just generally blowing hot air.....

@Cameron19  For hockey he is going to be as good as his scouts and GM are.  So hopefully he can or has found the right GM

@Cameron19  He won't be able to do much different from what he did with LA.  For soccer he brought in beckham.  But for the kings he supported the kings tanking for talent, changing coaches, GMs, front office folks and spending to cap limit and trading as necessary.

@Cameron19  Leiweke took Bernier with him basically, so hopefully he can pull something like Tavares or Stamkos off in a few years

On Wednesday, the games played will be all evened up with Columbus.  If we can win our two games, the Jackets will have to go 1-1-1 to be tied with us. That's a pretty realistic record to expect from them.  I know it is captain obvious material, but all we can do is win our games and hope for the best.

@Cameron19  Shouldn't have even come to this but fingers crossed. Gonna be one helluva stressful week coming up.

@Cloud09 @Cameron19  Yea, even just one win in that stretch of 8 and suddenly we're still in a playoff spot and we just need Columbus to lose one more game than us.

@Komas Taberle I get the feeling if Nonis doesn't work out here Leiw will get Rob Blake for gm.

Really good chance the top 6 teams in the West all finish with over 100 point seasons.

@wiski  The Leafs weren't catching Detroit anyways. It's 8th or nothing at this point.

@TheCanucksnaphook  At least Jordan posted pictures.   lol   BUT you needed a good swift kick.  lol

Sorry man.  Just kidding.   Hope you're OK.   Stop being a jackass and forget MLHS for a few and get some help.

@Cloud09  It must go up significantly if we win tomorrow and CLB loses their next game.

@Cloud09 @Cameron19  Gotta play in their end. They're missing Bogosian and Ellerby. Lots of weak D, like Postma and Redmond, to exploit.

@Belfour20/JB-45  Forgot about that, were they leading that game when it happened? I believe the score was 1-0

@GVR_JVR  Saw the hilites


Ottawa up 3 zip, then Anderson allows the worse goal of the year


Not so much how well Habs played, its how Ottawa collapsed after Anderson layed  that egg
