    mathlete's intimidate me. Is the weird guy in the background their teacher/coach? Does Coach Q utilize their theories on line formations. I'm pretty sure the complex problem they so proudly display on their chalk board is actually an Doctoral Dissertation on zone entry for the Hawks power play.

    The last memory I have vs. Phoenix was when we went on an ill advised line change and the Coyotes converged on a 4 on one. Despite the fact that corey overcomiitted to the first three options, he still should have stopped the fourth. Corey sucks.
