Todd White Is A Bigger Man Than All Other Men Combined

Especially the entire New York Rangers hockey team and the officials at tonight's game. I'm not one to go in for conspiracy theories--in fact, I find them contemptible most of the time--but some of the calls tonight made me wonder whether there might be instructions from Central Committee to cushion the Rangers' playoff position with as many favorable calls as possible.

Perhaps not, but lots of the calls against the Thrashers in these past two games make one wonder. Or am I just paranoid?

None of this really matters though, because Todd White is the Man. Glad to see the Czar continue to rack up the points; he looks set to pass last year's point total, which is great, amiright?

Anyone know what happened to Kari? Anyone? What happened to Kari? Heengh? HEEEENNNGH?


P.S. This game says quite a lot about Kovalchuk's leadership. He began the rally with that fine, fine goal (certainly in his Top 20 for Aesthetics, I think) and, as we all know, assisted on the two others in regulation. I have no doubt in my mind that he loves being the Czar of Atlanta.

P.P.S. It was awesome when Kovy knocked Sean Avery on his ass.

Todd White doesn't score, he makes sweet love.

Kovalchuk played like a man possessed. Awesome.

Why does Anderson continue to start the shootout with Little? He sucks at the shootout. Have Kozlov start it, get a lead, then finish with Kovy(He sucks at the shootout too, but he's the captain, so, you know...), then use White for the climax. I'd actually like to see what Bogosian could do on a shootout. Give him a try, coach!

Kari has the all mysterious "Upper body injury". Whatever the hell that is.

I am proud to be a Thrasher fan. You have no idea how much I look forward to next season and see this team continue to grow and develop. Good days are ahead, my friends. Good days are ahead.

I say have Pevs, Slava, and Kovy do it. Also Kovy should just rip the shot, not finesse it like Slava. Just overpower the goalie, but hey, I'm just a guy with a keyboard. Wakka wakka

I love how Heennngh can be a one word sentance that ends in either ! or ?

I, too, am proud to be a Thrasher fan.

Mort, I was thinking the very same thing about the refs last night. It was a joke no goal call followed by an unnecessarily long decision time on the Rangers' no goal.

May I posit: The Party is UFA job 1 this summer.

After Kovy, of course.

Shoot out line up- pevs, slava, white or kovy. Kovy sucks in the shoot out but his move last night was money, just hit the pipe. Much better, he usualy looks special olypics in the shoot out.

Knocked Avery on his ass? Was that when he cross-checked him in the mouth?
