Disgusting...

I know we're missing players... I know there are excuses... etc.

Someone please explain to me how THAT team makes it further than 5 games in the playoffs...

every goalie has a bad game (though it was a completely defensive breakdown) but for the love of god they need a backup goalie that can play so they can pull calvin before he is hunched over in pain

There is no excuse why a goalie should have to go through that. There is no excuse why in over a months time they couldnt get a backup goalie down here who can play. This isnt Jake's fault, this isnt Calvin's fault, it's managements fault!!

Oh thanks Thom for asking Rob in the post game interview why he couldn't pull Calvin!!!! They should just broadcast the games with no announcers it would be about the same!

Are we going without a backup goalie that can play in the playoffs too???

Hey guys:

I called my shot about the Winterhawks tonight, and the Hawks delivered.... I thought the Hawks were had more fight to the puck and had better special teams and a better goaltender this evening. Oh by the way, the Winterhawks have 3 goalies!

Did the T-birds quit? Are the T-birds satisfied with a 6th seed? and are not hungry to fight for a 5th seed. If that the case, you deserve the butt kicking the Hawks gave you tonight. Thats Bad Karma.

I will see a few of you T-birds fans tomorrow night in the Rose City, where the Winterhawks will honor the Portland Buckaroos. Lets hope the T-birds will wear the old Seattle Totem uniforms from the 1960's....

Happy travels down I-5.

What team shows up in the playoffs?

The one that beat Kelowna, Vancouver twice, and Tri 6-0 OR the team that loses to Spokane, Tri, Everett and Portland 9-1???

Yes Brian did call that one.... What can you do but laugh, Portland probably deserved to win 15-0. Hickey's hit on Valchar was the only cheer worthy moment of the night. A bunch of people in our section were playing AC/DC's "TNT" after Portland's 7th, 8th, and 9th goal. Just one of those games Portland played as a team and with some fire... And nobody on Seattle showed any sort of emotion or quite frankly looked like they cared..... At least we can say we lost to the best and worst team in the West by 8 goals this season. I'm thinking Rob Sumner's last year is next year. I have blasted Sumner in the past for letting his teams roll over. But when you are losing 9-0 in the 2nd period to your rival on your fan appreciation night with a big crowd, somebody needs to send a message clearly Sumner coaches like he played, like a coward. May be a little harsh but the T-birds need a tougher coach.

As long as we replace the coach lets get a new GM!!! Thats where the buck stops. The T Birds will be a consistenly mediocre team as long as Farwell calls the shots. We didn't trade for the future so we could experience this? Gee I'm sure glad we put so much value on keeping this team together. That will sure build the fan base. At this point now that Portland has revamped their staff I'd say without hesitation that we have the weakest organization (GM Scouts Coach) in the league.

I need to amend that I meant weakest organization in our conference. I consider Spokane, Tri, Port, Everett, Kelowna, Vanc above Seattle. To be fair I can't say that Chili or PG or Kam are any better than us. So call it a tie for last in the conference.

Amen to that!!

Mike,
You have no credibility. For the second time in two weeks you accuse the broadcaster of something he didn't do. He never asked Rob in the post game show why he didn't pull Calvin. Instead he STATED why Rob couldn't pull Calvin. (the Desrres injury). They should just play the games without you in attendance, it would be about the same. Either that or go get your hearing checked.
