He is still shooting a whole heck of a lot though, and his shots get through which is good. I don't think anyone thought he was going to keep scoring goals every game. Still the most promising of all our young defensemen at this point.


Exactly what I meant. Even though he's not scoring as he was, he clearly knows the game better than expected for someone with his limited experience. He seems to have that something that you really can't teach.

These threads crack me up. So the rest of the league hasn't figured out that Gelinas sucks yet, but a bunch of guys on a message board have it all figured out.

Severson has tailed off in terms of his scoring, but he has a hockey sense far beyond what should be expected in a rookie with 20 or so games under his belt.

The team is already in Canada, any chance we could just leave him up there? I know he's Eastern as opposed to Western, but even so...

Have to agree with this sentiment. I DVR every thing else I watch on TV and skip the commercials, but I don't do it with sporting events. The only time I DVR a game and don't start watching as soon as it begins, is if I'm going to miss part of the game for whatever reason.

I just think that it kills the fun of it to watch a sporting event on delay. Part of the fun is seeing things as they happen and riding the emotional rollercoaster provided by that. This is especially so because it's pretty damn hard to avoid finding out how the game is going when you're not watching, whether it's via a friend's text, facebook, the NHL app, etc. I always end up seeing something when I don't want to and that kills the fun of watching the part of the game I missed.

 

You have to be really careful to avoid finding out details of what happened, but if you can, its the same up and down emotionally. I am almost never ready to sit down and watch a game at 7:00, so I really don't have much of a choice. 

 

Last night, I watched the game live and experienced the "douche-chillery" of this commercial for myself. Its annoying but when you think about it, a lot of commercials are.

 

I've eaten there, they are what they are...a step above fast food, a step below actual food.
