Here we go.
Philadelphia: Flying, but issued warning after those hits. The city of brotherly love, this is not.
New York Rangers: Hey, you beat the Islanders what, one out of three? Four? so far?
New Jersey Devils: EIGHT STRAIGHT! I love this, I am once again proud to be a Devils' fan!
NY Islanders: Better than fourth place, but they have to start scoring to prove it.
Pittsburgh: Same ole' same ole, huh?
Ottawa: Learning the hard way, it's not how you start that matters.
Boston: What the heck are these guys doing here? Did they get an SI cover or something?
Montreal: Come on, back to the top where you belong!
Toronto: What's this, a win?
Buffalo: Umm, yeah. I know you play in the frozen wasteland of Upstate NY, but come on now...
Carolina: Better than the Panthers (the football ones)
Atlanta: Can you please decide if you're going to be good or bad?
Tampa Bay: Stick to football. Or possibly baseball. (Did I really just say that?)
Florida: Normally it'd be a roar, but right now it seems like a meow.
Washington: RIP Sean Taylor. The 'Skins played with some heart, would be nice for the Caps to do the same thing.
Detroit: Carry on.
St. Louis: See above.
Columbus: Out of the cellar I like.
Chicago: Not your year, is it?
Nashville: Stick to the Winter Meetings. Or something.
Vancouver: Putting together a nice string...7-2-1 in last 10.
Minnesota: Something to detract from the Johan Santana blubber.
Colorado: Not the Avs of old.
Edmonton: Guess you kind of miss Gretzky, huh?
Calgary: League's biggest disappointment thus far?
Dallas: Much better.
San Jose: Well, as long as you're swimming and not sinking...
Anaheim: Still got a lot of work to do.
Phoenix: Again, not in last place.
LA Kings: Well, I never really saw LA as a hockey town...
Boston: Orlando's better.
Toronto: Well, at least one Toronto team lives up to expectations.
New Jersey: Not as good as their record. Please get better, Nenad Kristic! Still though, not New York.
New York: A joke at this point.
Philadelphia: Well, at least they aren't defying expectations.
Detroit: Carry on. (Detroit is apparently King of Winter Sports).
Indiana: Exceeding expectations.
Milwaukee: See above.
Cleveland: In deep shitake mushrooms without LBJ.
Chicago: This was once Jordan's team?
Orlando: Better than Boston.
Washington: Treading water.
Atlanta: Performing below expectations.
Charlotte: Carolina fans are best off sticking to hockey.
Miami: *point and laugh*
Utah: Get the road record up, and then we'll talk.
Denver: Have I mentioned 'Melo yet?
Portland: When a 6-12 team is in third place...umm...
Seattle: Ah. That's why.
Minnesota: Stick to hockey and Santana.
Phoenix: Well, at least Phoenix has one viable sports team
LA Lakers: No Kobe trade? Eh.
Golden State: Won't be surprised to see these guys make the playoffs.
Sacramento: Once upon a time, these guys were good.
LA Clippers: These guys, not so much.
San Antonio: Would find a way to beat both the Celtics and Magic combined.
New Orleans: See Phoenix.
Dallas: Stick to football. Or hockey.
Houston: Still waiting for Year of the Yao.
Memphis: Stick to the Winter Meetings.
I am exhausted, and I still have finals to go. It's been an intense week, to say the least.
