Shame on me.

Remember this: the most important part of the clip happens at the end. There are guys remembering what it's like to play together. And to win together.

Big Time Play: Toby Enstrom's positioning on Army's first goal, shoving the puck back into the zone. Huge.

Kari's performance is a big step toward regaining confidence & form. Yeah, I know, it was the Devils. But there have been nights when we couldn't stop anything thrown at us. Let's take it to Florida and build some more.

Feels good to win, doesn't it?

Gameday vs. Devils

NJ Devils.... blah blah blah... Kovy scored 3 goals in last 5 games... blah blah blah... Brodeur still out... blah blah blah....

Srsly, they could ice the Trenton Devils tonight and the Thrashers would have the same shot at winning.

Sometimes I try to comfort myself by thinking "this is what Blackhawks/Bruins/Pens fans had felt for years..."

...yeah, I don't buy it either.

Go Thrashers.


Thrashers' new tagline: "Hey, at least you're not in the KHL..."

Oh, and: Trade Kovalchuck? Yeah, we'd need a little thing called "foresight" to be able to handle that correctly. Thanks anyway, Proteau.

Aaaaaand We're Back + DW Photoshop Expo!

Now with the holiday season safely tucked away behind us, the Outsider resumes broadcasting. Did everyone get what they wanted?


Okay, everyone's opined on everything that's happened during my holiday break, and probably did a better job than I would have, so we'll let it rest.

Except for that. Just 'cause it's gameday.

And he hits like a girl.

Expect the Pens to snap their 5 game losing streak tonight. They'll be pissed, and they have talent. That spells doom for our boys.

We're easing back in to everyday life here at the Outsider, so we thought it might be fun to offer you our first-ever Don Waddell photoshop contest!

Here's Donnie. Tell me what he's thinking.

Here's a couple of examples, just to get the ball rolling:

See how much fun that was?
