rd. thought the same EXACT thing last night. white is a bull in a china shop

Guess you didn't see the game. The fact that white is or is not "a bull in a china shop" has nothing to do with how the injury occured. It was just a freak thing that occationally happens when 4 players going to the boards with a bit of steam behind them.

One other thing about Metro that truely sucks for those of us who get to see the games is that the picture quality is absolutely terrible. It is as if they haven't properly calibrated their equipment or it is so old it is failing.

I am not sure if anyone knows what i am talking about but the picture is almost oversaturated with light or the white balance is off. You can barely see the lines, Cricles, goal crease and puck. Some nights it is as if there are bodyless heads floating around the ice for whatever team is wearing white. Granted it isn't as bad as I make it out but it is terrible makes me think I am in a time warp watching late 60's sports broadcasting.

Sometimes I think I may be better off just listening to the play by play on 770 rather than punishing my eyes being frustrated.

This remeinds me of my seeing the cup experience.

After the Banner raising Ceremony when we won the cup in 1999-2000.

A group of my friends and I decided to go over to Hoolihans over by the arena for dinner. As we were waiting for out food to arrive a group of really hot women came in. As it is our job as typical males we were drooling and oogling. Following them in were a few of really dorky looking guys and euro trash bleach blonde losers. they took a group of tables over to our left. Like I said earlier it being our job and all we continued to check out the women. All at the same time they were looking at us and talking amongst themselves. And then Low and behold in walks the cup with those two guys who were it's care takers. We nearly soiled ourselves. Being we were so preoccupied with their women two of the guys with them were in fact Patrik Elias and Petr Sykora. You'd think we would have picked it up earlier being they were all speaking Cech and most likely thought we were staring because two of us still had our Devils sweaters on thinking we noticed them. But in conclusion. They were really nice guys and once they finish eating we went up man handled the cup I'm talking we picked it up spun it around fondled it a bit. ANd it was all cool. That night they also gave out mini replica banners as we exited the arena so Patty and Petr Signed it for us. Too bad we couldn't find a camera anywhere so I was unable to get pics. But it was an unbelievable and unforgetable night.

I can't stand Bicek It may be due to me wanting to see Elias and gomez have a better partner at wing and in turn it causes me to focus on his defects.

However, When i watch Bicek Move the puck over blue line I cringe because He'll stop all forward momentum and look to drop the puck back to whoever is behind him more often than not turning the puck over or passing it out of the zone. This usually occurs because there is a D-man in front of him and he doesn't want to get hit. I just don't understand why he doesn't dump it into the corner or take a shot on net and chase with his teammates trailing him.
