You don't even know what it means, because it means absolutely nothing. A thinker of words? Seriously? That's the best you can come up with?

I mean, come on. It's the internet, you can at least look up a good insult. If you can think up the right words to Google, of course. Seeing as how you consider being a "word-thinker" to be a bad thing, then I doubt you'd be able to do this.

That was disappointing. I was quite impressed by how loud the fans were tonight.

Come on boys, win on Wednesday!

To make it worse, after the goal Elliott is shouting goalie interference for some reason when it clearly wasn't even close. He's just so clearly losing it.



Yeah true. My comment about not many people having confidence in Johnson was in reference to players, not the fans.

I do see your point though. My personal preference is sticking with Elliott cuz I really don't like putting in a cold goalie and my confidence is pretty low in Johnson. But to each their own. Both sides have merit imo.

So what are you suggesting? That they tank a year?

They're a young team that's getting better. You can't just dial them back and make them finish bottom five another year.

Between this suggestion and trading Gaudreau, it might be time for you to take a step back and think about what you're suggesting. Those are a couple of head-scratchers.

That, along with the 2 boo boos in game 2, should be reason enough to finally tell him enough is enough.



Having said that I doubr Glen wants to go back to Elliott with so much at stake. If he does, I will be pretty angry since I'm attending the game and woukd rather have Gillies have a shot. But maybe Playoff Moose can miraculously show up still. Can't see it at this point though.


Yeah I do think it's time for a switch in starters, but really I don't have faith in Johnson lol he's just been way too super shaky.

Gilles would be awesome but I don't think GG could stand behind that decision.

Back from the game. For some reason I was far more heartbroken after Game 2. Maybe because after that epic collapse in the third I realize our fate in this series is sealed. Ha the feeling on the radio is we could have been up 3-0. Ah no.

And how stupid am I? I did not want anything to do with the Oilers in round one and thought Anaheim would be an easier target than Chicago partly because of their injuries. And the funny thing is Anaheim has not played that well at all in the series. We beat ourselves fully and completely.

But it's apparent. There is something about that team. We simply cannot win against them. Period. Maybe that changes one day. But I doubt it.

Jealous of the fans of the other Canadian teams right now.

Ughh. It's just not gonna happen,I was way too optimistic hoping for a single Flames win in this series.Between being out-coached,poor goaltending and maybe some NHL shenanigans (doubtful,but who really knows?) this team is done next game.Too bad the ghosts of Ogie Oglithorpe,Dr Hook and the Screaming Buffalo couldn't be summoned from the minor leagues of Pennsylvania for some "old time hockey,eh" to end the season for a couple of the most deserving Ducks...

We will never win with Johnny quote me on that.. I'll eat pubes if we ever win a cup with him on this team.

Just back from the game and gutted...but as soon as the second goal went in you had that feeling. I figured a Ducks PP would be the 4-3 goal or 4-4 goal.

Lots of thoughts, abandoning the plan and happy to get the puck out of the zone the last 26 minutes of the game, the refs rewriting the rule book on a 6'1 guy with his stick above his shoulder (thus higher then the cross bar), the 2nd goal being junk at the worst time going into the end of the second etc etc.

Flames didn't get dirty enough, and the point men can't seem or don't want to fire it at the net as much as the Ducks do.
Tkachuk hasn't really been the same since he was scolded by the Flames for letting his personality shine through on the Doughty thing.

Great game by Bennett.
One of the Flames tap ins happen at 3-1 and again at 4-1, and it was over..but that second goal swung the momentum along with the cross bar at the buzzer at the end of the second.

As one poster said, IMO about as undeserved a 3-0 lead as there is, but I don't think GG has the motivational style to get these guys back...its up to pride of the players themselves. Get a win Wed. Somehow fluke it out on Friday in ANA, as we're due a couple flukes. Get the Ducks having to come back here for next Sunday nervous and not wanting to go back next Tuesday. A long road ahead but anything is possible.

There's enough offseason to focus on the negative (though for some around here its a gleeful and smug year round pasttime), enjoy the playoff experience and dream the impossible.

I can hand-count the number of times when I picture-thought instead of word-thinked. Ohh man, I get spine-shivers just brain-thinking about that.
