agreed, the thing that was surprising was that they actually ever were in first at all

Chiarelli said that he knew about it well in advance and Thomas will not be suspended
It was cleared but my point was that there is "something wrong" with not going to team events off the ice according to administration. It was not in the best interest of the organization. Neely apparently pushed hard to get him to cave but the guy didn't. Respect him for holding his ground but at the same time, my conspiracy theory side thinks that he woulda gone if he didn't have a conn smyth and vezina in his pocket from last season.

Toews out for NSH tomorrow night and probably the ASG (which is okay, take the rest). Hope he's back in time for the 9 game trip coming up.

Minnesota's fall has not really been surprising to anyone, IMO
oh I didn't mean insane like "wow i didn't see this happening" but rather the speed and magnitude of the drop was what I was referring to.

Clarke MacArthur playing on the fourth line tonight versus the Islanders.

Everybody knew he was hunching above his weight last year, but it's still a drag to see his scoring totals drop like this.

@SlavaMalamud Seriously, is Tim Thomas in the White House?

@SlavaMalamud If Tim Thomas really did boycott the White House event, this should be a story. Did any president have to deal with this kind of disrespect?

@SlavaMalamud And don't tell me this has nothing to do with race. This utter, uncompromising hatred of the President is something I've never seen before

@SlavaMalamud Pretty sure 99% of US-born NBA players are Dems ('cause, you know, black), but they showed their asses up at WH to meet Bush. Unbelievable

@SlavaMalamud Screw you, Tim Thomas, and all the "me patriot, you traitor" crowd that breeds this hatred. You are not Americans and never will be.

@SlavaMalamud Next time there is a GOP President (if ever) I hope an entire NBA or college team boycotts the hell out of him. Will never happen, tho

@SlavaMalamud This animal hatred of the man got to the point that merely standing on a stage next to him is some kind of an insult. Tim, you are an idiot.

Thomas is an idiot for not going but calm the fuck down, it's not like he's stomping on the flag and shitting in the White House garden.

it's more of an indication as to how unintelligent NBA players are than anything.

Spencer Hawes would not be caught dead next to Barry O.

Probably cause he's not playing for a title contender.
