I don't know if I've heard of that happening much in the NHL _ where the parent club plays the farm team in the preseason. Am I wrong on this? How about a Blues-Dallas Stars preseason game? Would that work for you?
I think it's worth watching as this series proceeds. The Sharks have some older players, and they've had two rugged 7-games series.
Players have complained, but only mildly. Most of them don't like the late starts if they can be avoided. They don't like waiting around that extra hour or two for the game to start. So how's the weather in San Diego _ never mind, I know.
Only four times (out of I think 190) in NHL playoff history has a team rallied from a 3-0 deficit to take the series. So yes, I'm saying there's a chance. . . .
Yeah, they could do Blues-Stars in San Antonio one year and Blues-Stars in Austin the next. Something like that.
Yeah, but as reporters, we always root for the good storyline. And Blues-Bruins would be a great storyline. Blues back in the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1970 when it was . . . .Blues-Bruins. Bobby Orr. Maybe I get Mike Martz on the phone and ask him about Spygate once more. And hasn't Boston won enough titles lately? Isn't it time for them to share?
I hear you. But we must also remember how skilled some of these Sharks players are and give them credit. This is a team Binnington is seeing for the first time. Like the Blues as a whole, he's shown all kinds of resiliency this season.
OK, time to get ready for Game 3. Appreciate all the input. Either TomT or yours truly will be back here next Wednesday. Take care. . . . .
