Takes and trash talk from both ALL sides of the NHL's most obscure PATHETIC* rivalry

* Thanks, Kevin Lowe!

What are you thankful for?

Just thought I'd get a bit into the Thanksgiving spirit and reflect on one of the main things this Ducks fan is particularly grateful for on this holiday. Feel free to leave your own thanks in the comments, hockey-related or not.
  • Thank you, Ottawa Senators:
    Outside of the cup finals, the Sens have had quite a calendar year 2007. They ended their 06-07 regular season by winning 40 of 62 games after January 1st, won 12 of 15 games in the first three rounds of the playoffs, won all seven of their preseason games, and now have won 16 of 20 games to start this season. All told, that comes to 75 wins in 104 games (72%), with an impressive goal differential of 296 - 190, better than a goal difference per game.

    Suffice to say that there are a lot of stretches over 2007 where the Senators would have killed last year's Ducks in a seven-game series; fortunately May 28 - June 6 wasn't one of them. Outside of the Ducks (who did it twice in five games), the Sens haven't suffered consecutive regulation losses this entire calendar year.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Of course they were 3-5 (OT: 1-1) last season against western teams. And -8 in those 10 games! (5/25 Losses)

Well, I'm glad our pain has brought you so much joy, Sleek.

(And by glad, I mean I'm trying really hard not to kick somebody in the crotch right now).

Oh Javageek, poking holes in my holiday fun. Still, if Sherry kicks somebody in the crotch it's all been worth it.

I'm thankful for the fact that my Sharks have played severely under their potential the entire year and yet have managed to stay atop the Pacific, as well as keeping up with the rest of the West. It's going to be a great day when this team finally figures out how good they are.

I'm just thankful we still have a team in Nashville (a darn good one at that), and that local ownership is taking a 2nd shot at making the business work.

We'll how you feel about that when you're at the receiving end of it.

I'm thankful that I wasn't able to watch that miserable shit team of mine completely mail it in against fucking PHOENIX.
