    You need some better hardware my friend...

    It's my work laptop. I'm determined to make it last the three years that they are supposed to last (typical lease; although our company purchases them outright). My manager told me a few times to just fill out a form for a new one and he'll approve it, but I'm determined. (If I wait out another 8 months I'll have a nicer one than the rest of them!)

    Turco would be ineligible if claimed by another team for remaining reg season and playoffs because he didn't sign before trade deadline.

    Given this info, I can't see anyone claiming Turco. It's not like the Bs are competing for 8th and a rival would do it just to hurt them in any way possible.

    It would certainly make for an interesting time the next time the top brass meet again. Instead of meeting at some fancy Florida resort, they should do a "Team Building" type thing by renting out a gym and doing some "friendly" sparring. Chiarelli could make Chara a special advisor or AGM or something like that and bring him along. Good times.

    That is odd. We knew he was not eligible to play for Boston in the playoffs due to signing after the trade deadline, but that is odd that if a team other than Boston picks him up, he's ineligible for the regular season as well.

    Meh. Boston's cemented in 2nd, so it's not like having Turco or not having Turco is going to make a difference in the end. I imagine they'll rest Thomas the same amount, regardless of who they're putting in net. It's all about the playoffs for them now.

    That's a silly rule. No playoffs I can see, but no regular season?

    1. I don't think they are cemented at all. 9 points max ahead of the Sens with a brutal schedule. If Thomas gives up 4 to the Leafs, imagine how they will do when they face Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Philly, San Jose, LA -- all of those coming up this month. We'll see. The Sens have lost two games recently that they should have won with better goaltending, including one against the Bruins. If they win that one game, that 9 quickly becomes 5. I know, if is the key word here, but still, they are not out of the woods w.r.t. finishing 2nd.

    2. Thomas needs the rest. Teams may start running him. If he goes down, they are in trouble.

    3. Playoffs, exactly. If they slip out of 2nd they could fall all the way down to 4th/5th and face Pittsburgh, with a rested Sid. No, they need to finish 2nd and if they don't get a solid backup they are forced to play Thomas. Risk of fatigue and injury may not change, but the consequences would be much higher.

    Isn't that ridiculous? I really don't see what the point of this rule is.

    I'm not confident Dreger's right on this one - because it's so dumb.

    Seems no point to even pass him through waivers... unless the goal is to allow another team to block the acquisition for whatever reason.

    Strange rule. Really little point in sending him through waivers at all...

    Kronwall on Voracek. Suspension worthy?

    I think so. Shoulder directly to head. Disagree with the analysts completely. Not that it was dirty, but this was shoulder directly to face/head.



    P.S. So two D-men and a forward lost by Philly on consecutive nights. Jagr also got slightly injured and is questionable for Thursday night. Folks, this is March. Here come the injuries.

    Shanny still has his Wings jersey hanging in his closet. But Voracek wasn't wearing Sens colors. Tough decision for him Smile
