    Why would I need excuses for the wins? I am not sure I am following you at this point. I think Roscoe was correct.

    Darth, you are giving me a good battle this week. How did you do last year? I can't wait to see how I match up against some of the tougher competition. :stirthepot:

    You're right. He did close the gap. Now it's 7-4 in roster moves.

    Bill, it's flattering that you are so happy with yourself losing 5-6 to me. I think it's going to end up 5-5. Sounds like cake and ice cream for the Laimbeer family tonight.:hungry::dancingparty::party2:

    Me...I kinda feel like I just kissed my sister...well, I don't have one, but I am told that this is how it feels.:sssh:

    Seriously, your goalies came through for you, but my offense was just too much. I was happy with how my guys played except the Penguin goalie. Good match! :) You'll probably win face-offs all year with Brind'Amour.

    I had face-offs in mind when I picked up Brind'Amour and Sundin. They need to chip in with the other categories, too, though. Gotta' go finish my ice cream....

    Don't forget to give some to your dogs too for knocking out Roscoe in their baseball league...although that wasn't much of an accomplishment for them.:pound:

    I'm confused. Tater, is the goal to get as few points as possible? What's that? No? Oh, you just suck then.

    I guess that's the problem when you have EIGHT players from the same team. What's that saying? Live by the Lightning, die by the Lightning. :stirthepot:

    Jammer, Habs look good. Why is Plekanec still a FA?

    Yeah, they've been playing well of late. Nice to see them putting the puck in the net consistently. They're really a special teams team, they're excellent on the PP and PK, but they don't score too many even strength goals.

    Because I'm not Darth Tater. I don't feel the need to carry 14 guys from my favourite team. :pound:

    Look at his last acquisition. It's because he has realized the Lightning are better. :pound:

    You're right. My last free agent signing brings my grand total of Tampa players to a whopping 1.

    Yes, the Lightning are much better... than the injured D-man I released.

    My team struggled a bit the first 3 weeks. Tampa played 6 games in 3 weeks.

    Now, the play a whopping 6 games in 9 days. So you guys who played me early got lucky.

    My best defenseman is probably back tomorrow after missing the entire seson with a freak hand injury(a skate fell off his locker and severed some tendons).

    My goalies are doing well.

    Look out for the Taters...

    Some of my guys need to get going. I got Shanny and Modano doing practically nothing. And Joe Thornton has a relatively slow start.

    Darth, I see that Brad Boyes was on your team for only about an hour. Did he fail the team physical as per conditions of your negotiated contract?

    I think that was a move just to keep the Roster Move Title within reach. You're ahead 14-12 as we speak.

    Either that or he's just in training for the playoffs, when he has to be in top physical and mental shape so that he doesn't pull something while making his 8 daily roster transactions.

    I hope nobody notices my team has a minus 21 so far. :sssh:

    I can't believe my team is playing like this. I thought I'd kick butt with my guys finally getting some games in...but NOOOOOOO.

    I suppose I should get off my butt and do something since I'm the commissioner. Maybe a blurb on each team or the matchups or something.

    OK,

    How about:

    Bezeach: Same as last year. Kicking butt out of the gate. Fantastic numbers. He'll disappear around the playoffs...like always.

    Jammer's team: It sucks

    Roscoe's team: It sucks too

    How was that.

    Next time I'll do an in depth analysis on Mikhail's team and Bill Laimbeer's team.

    Hey...What the hell happened to Woody? Oh well, I may as well do his teams analysis while I'm at it or he will whine..It sucks as bad as the others.

    Ok, now don't say I do nothing as commissioner. At least I started the season on time (Don't tell Linwood I said that). :pound::stirthepot:

    My team doesn't suck, it just needs some work. It will get better in January. :)

    Speaking of SUCK, what is that sound coming out of Tater Bay? Sounds like a high pitched whine.
