Was good to see the boys rebound after Friday loss where they sort of slept thru the initial period. Some pretty balanced scoring throughout the lineup is going to give other teams fits this year. As long as Hollett and Brown stay healthy my only conceris on defense but hopefully that will come around.

Seflish penalty by Wagner Friday night hurt the Team and will no likely cost him a few games from the League office. He's taken a few no brainers this year already...maybe some Team discipine required JP.

Biggest surprise has to be Buziak with 5 goals in 6 games...it's given him confidence and judging by his playing last night in the last couple of minutes when Pats shorthanded the coaches also have confidence. Very good to see.

A big weekend in sports. It's been a long time since I've had this sports content feeling. I know it's short lived but still. It's been a long time coming. Riders won, Jays won, Thunder won, Pats won.
If only Jones could have had the Riders playing like this when they still had a chance at a playoff spot. As mentioned in Rods article. Riders could end up at 8-10 and possibly tie the 1st place Eastern team. Yet the Riders will be watching while the Eastern second and possibly third place teams head into the playoffs.
With 9 teams now there should be 3 divisions. West, central and East. 1st place of the top 2 divisions gets the buy. This way there is even competition cross division. 1st place of the division that dosent get the buy plays the wild card with the worst record; that being 6th place. The other 2 wild cards have the 4th and 5th best records in the league and also play each other in the semifinal.
This way the top 6 teams in the league make it into the playoffs. Instead of the dumb system we have now.
I'm not just saying this because of SK situation. Hell the way they played for 2/3rds of the season they don't deserve anything. I would just like to see the top 6 teams make the playoffs.
I'm not sure about you; I do not feel an East West rivalry like there was back in the 1970's and 80's. That seems to have all but died off.
