    Sending good vibes to Vokoun and the gang!

  3. Barb says:

    Here’s hoping that Tomas heals quickly. Blood clots are nasty buggers.

  4. Brandie says:

    Sending out extra prayers and good vibes!

    Hi Barb :)

  7. Barb says:

    Hi there! We are going back forth between the blogs.

  8. CWalton_67 says:

    Anticipating a lot a regular season wins, and then the now standard meltdown by MAF in the playoffs. Having a hard time working up any enthusiasm for the upcoming season, which is extremely rare for me.

    Anyone else?

  9. Jandy says:

    I’m willing to see how it goes. Give Zatkoff a chance…give him a few games to get to the NHL speed. he may just be fine.

  10. Jandy says:

    Yup lol

  11. Brandie says:

    Maybe it’s The Steelers Malaise that’s affecting your hockey enthusiasm!

  12. Milo Hamilton says:

    Harry Zolnierczyk > Tanner Glass.

  13. Brandie says:

    He also has the better name.

  14. Milo Hamilton says:

    Good stuff from the Zatkoff.

  15. Barb says:

    Beat Blackhawks in a shoot out again.

  16. Sarah says:

    I am with you.
    Really having a tough time with the enthusiasm. Good at winning one-game series in reg season. In post season 7-gamers, when coaching and strategy (and goaltending) take on a whole new level of importance, not so much.

    Once burned and all.

    Or….twice, maybe, er, well, more like 4 times burned.

    Now very shy.

  17. Sarah says:

    I hope they give him at least a decent chance.
    He was buried in depth in LA I think?….Perhaps could have been starting somewhere by now.

    So let’s take a look at him.
