    I wasnít speaking for myself. I was speaking in regard to those that expressly didnít care for the topic.

    If people want to make political jokes (or any off topic posts) it doesnít bother me - but political posts are especially prone to reaction and response. So people can joke all they wish, but no complaining when that generates push back...

    BTW, two assists for JVR who is red hot...

    Good thing that JvR is beginning to pick up steam, as "UNH South" in Charlotte is struggling to get points.

    Cup is now clearly Bís to lose.
    Also, an interesting case study for the "SOG's mean nothing" camp. Caps outshot the B's something like 42-18 or thereabouts, but lost in a blowout that was never really a close game at any point.

    Perhaps JvR's recent hot streak finally provides us with real proof of man-made global warming?

    I cannot argue against that selection.

    I have been in the Philly area for most of the month and have to say the flyers broadcast team has nothing but positives to say about JvR. Like his play all over the ice.
    As to your points over the next 3 games, I will hope for 3 and greatly fear 2. This is a fun team to watch and are coming on, but the 2.5 goal per game can't carry you unless you are getting outstanding goaltending. I had gone out on a limb before the season started predicting 105 goals. We will be back at the 90 of last year if we don't find ways to be more consistent.
    Wish all Cats fans the best this Holiday Season.

    Unfortunately the answer is no! When I saw that in september I thought great, new venue and reasonable road trip. But 3 trips to the mid atlantic in 25 days is just about enough. Enjoy and lets hope they can score more than Army.
    Go Cats!

    No "hope" and "fear" allowed, ATW. :-)

    Need to pick a whole number for points between 0 and 6 (2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, 0 points for a loss) for the next theee games. Or, can simply take the over/under on 4.5 points.

    Good to hear that Flyer fans are happy with JvR being back in Philly, the team that drafted and signed him.

    Ok, you are in the contest, ATW. By 3 points, assuming that you are expecting 1 win and 1 tie, or 3 ties. You are even more pessimistic than I am. :-)

    Agreed Ö however, the fact there was very little (legit) competition for the honor speaks volumes about where the UNH program has been during the last decade. The guy who's leading the blueliners these last few seasons may have a legitimate argument at being #2 on that overall list. Good-but-not-great guys like Goumas and DeSmith are probably in the Top 5. Again, not to throw shade at any of these guys for what they did at UNH Ö but this list pales in comparison to similar lists from the two preceding decades, and may only be on par with a similar list from the '80's, which at least got off to a decent start before heading decidedly downhill. Thoughts?

    Thanks, mookie. Many here are hoping that Santa left a certificate for three W's in the next three OOC games in our Souzacat Christmas stockings, and I will be happy with two W's.

    TyK was great, but he might not crack top 10 in the aughts.

    As Oscar Wilde wrote in his anti-mimesis essay in 1889, "Life imitates art far more than art imitates life." Hint: The movie "Slap Shot" came out two years earlier in February 1977.

    Well, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. Truth be told, this would have been my go-to answer irrespective of date.
