GDB LXXVIII: Coyotes!

Sorry for the delay in getting the game day blog up, but feel free to discuss the game here now.  It's a historic season for the Coyotes who are hot on the heels of the Sharks for the Pacific Division title, and they've been led since the deadline by Lee Stempniak.  I'd have bet heavy, heavy money that neither of those statements would come true this season not all that long ago.

Well we tied with Philly when they shat the bed a few years ago. I was wondering if we'd hit 56. At least we will not look too bad in the history books.

Not too sure how Cogs feels about playing for Quinn. I'm not too sure how I feel about Quinn coaching the Oil really. I think this team stinks, but I think the right coach gets us at least 10 to 15 more points this year.

Shape of things to come . You think next years team will be better than this years ? After gutting more NHL veterans , we will be stuck with deadlast AHL players surrounded by "scotties little softies " . We had a mass migation with Pronger ,and now i wonder how many of our NHL caliber players will want out before next seasons debackle ?

Amateur hour not having a GDB up before the game. Gregor was doing the Rush play by play and we all got our wires crossed.

A big thanks to Willis for getting something up - if an Oilers game doesn't get a GDB does the loss even count?

You are fast becoming a real pain in the ass. Might I suggest:

a) Spell check b) An attitude adjustment c) Spell check
