it sure feels good as a fan to watch the draft, folow a kid through the minors, watch him come up and just SHINE. remember kreiders playoffs? remember stepan's debut hat trick? hagelin's promotion and then further promotion to the first line? it sure feels good.
Anyone else chuckle when Joe Micheletti just yells out in the middle of the Rangers' PP-- "THE ISLANDERS CAN'T SKATE", with no further context given until many seconds later?
really fun game to watch. Miller really impressed me [obviously]. but he had a really well rounded game. i also like ashams game when he was on. really played within himself. LETS KEEP IT ROLLING!
Al Trautwig's interviews have been reminiscent of a goofy uncle talking to his young nephews. If that even makes sense.
awesome! sam was on his inhaler.
first TWO, with this group
not for nothing, Ashams a much better skater than I thought
still in the 2nd period? Spoiler Alert!
Nabakov was still on the ice
I'm picking up what ur putting down.
@AnnoyingJoe 100% correct
@AnnoyingJoe i liked what he did tonight!
@AnnoyingJoe miller was on the ice for the empty netter, i wanted mac to pass it to him for the hat trick
@AnnoyingJoe Haha seriously? Then technically it is not an empty netter and will be charged against him no? Hilarious!
@cb1 somebody must've been listening - they switched back
We're gonna need a bigger boat
