Great news for Sabres fans, Martin Brodeur will not be participating in tonights contests, due to a tweaked elbow...pussy. The recently thinner goaltender left the Devils/Thrashers game with what has been diagnosed as a "bruised elbow"....pussy. I assume it's actually a strained FUPA.
ACTUAL NOTES ON GAME FEATURING THE NHL'S LEADING SCORER AGAINST A TEAM THAT EMPLOYS A DEFENSIVE SYSTEM THAT CHOKED THE FUN OUT OF THE GAME IN THE MID 90S
Last season all 4 games went to the shootout, with the Armpit of America winning 3 of those, how? No clue...Brian Rolston and Bobby Holik (how old is this dude?) are still on IR...That lil bastard Zach Parise leads the AoA with 14 points (9 dingers, 5 asses), Gionta is next with 8 pings...How that donk Lou Lamoriello gets a team featuring guys like Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond (best name everrrrrrr), Johnny Oduya, and Mike Mottau to succeed, I can be mildly unimpressed...Call me Captain Obvious Asshat, but this isn't the same team without Marty Brodeur.
Vanek is still a beast...Interesting to see how Kotalik performs as the man on the wall on the 1st line, apparently he's some sort of throwback Eastern European pitbull, we'll see...Its amazing to see how much better Pominville plays when he has a Center, an actual center, not Jochen Hecht (whom I feel is fantastic and really excels going both ways...thats what she said)...Miller's eyes had that look of focus and determination (not like how Biron's baby blues could melt your heart and steal your soul) and you knew he was gonna have a big game...No softies to P-LL-L k thanks...Does Paille deserve to be on the 4th line? Absolutely not, however right now you have to play the General along with some playmakers...Timmy Connolly looked good in his first game back, amazingly, if he plays all 71 games left this year, he still won't have played 50% of the game's under the 3 year contract he signed after his "breakout" playoff run.
STATISTICAL BREAKDOWN BITCHES

edit:: P-LL-L is day to day with a fractured nose, poor bastard.
Also, I forgot. Asshole.
