    A couple of notes: Segment three features a brilliant email from our own Archaeology; and the Gregor segement is terrific, highlighted by the beginning where he goes off on the TOI in yesterday’s first period.

    great stuff.

    I’m not sure if Matt not being able to witness the glory days is a blessing or a curse.

    Being old enough to have seen “the best”, it’s frustrating to sit by and have to watch “the rest” during the last two decades or so.

    “I’ll bet the Ottawa Senators are terrified when Lander, Petrell, and Eager come over the boards.”

    Well I guess they should have been because Eager scored. Yes, his bad defense also allowed Alfferdson to tie the game, but still.

    Really like your comments in segment 3 LT. The point regarding losing Messier really hit home because I think we all agree that the Oilers could have probably kept him if they really wanted to do so.
