I believe he was in studio and not in London... I don't think it's worth it for fox to fly guys out to each uefa league game- they had two games on yesterday and two today, and I'm sure midday ratings for soccer aren't high enough to warrant traveling the booth guys.

No idea who the backup play by play guy would be, but doc will be in the building tomorrow....

In Topic: Name an NHL captain less skilled than Bryce Salvador

Ed jovanovski. Seriously that was only like last year, the obsession with Salvador and hyperbole that he's "the worst captain in nhl history" is getting ridiculous. He's not good but some people need to tone down the hate. He played fine sv the rags.

I feel like we recycle this discussion every time early in the season...it's the same every year, early season midweek games are tough sells. Wait until December and the end of football season and see if there's still a problem, I guarantee there isn't.

Also there are only 2 home games against the rags this year so that probably had an effect on the blueshirts in the building.

I guess I'm the optimistic type but Severson is an absolute stud. He's so smart offensively and no slouch in the defensive zone. That move he pulled in OT on Kreider showed he has some serious balls and skill

I love the fact that he makes quick, decisive and confident decisions. That's something this team hasn't really had on the blue line since rafalski/neidermayer.

This team is talented.  I'm not sure how anyone can deny that.  Now if you wanna say that having a lot of talent isn't the same as having a good team, then fine.  But talent isn't the problem.

it feels weird to agree with SD on something but he's right, compared to most other teams in the league we are not "really talented." We have a lot of quality players, but not top tier talents... Greene might be the closest but even he has had a poor start this season by his standards.

Last night we had zubrus on our first line- that is not an indication of high talent.

And I don't mean that we're not good enough to win or we're really suffering because of our lack of talent (I mean geez we're only 6 games in and at .500, as tri said this thread is overreaction personified), but to blame deboer is silly. Again, is it deboer's fault zidlicky made a- in the words of al trautwig- BRUTAL pass?
