Gabriel Landeskank gonna skank, skank, skank. Seriously, if this is how you want your team captain to act then I can't--I don't--there isn't anything I can do for you. The guy has some talent, I'm not saying he doesn't, but it seems he's more worried about his street cred at this point than being an actual leader
And guess what? We get to play them again at home on March 8! I may need to get tickets so I can watch in person as the Wild go 5-0 against this flash-in-the-pan, no-talent, waste-of-ice hockey team.
I did include as many recaps as I could but I thought the one directly below deserved special mention. Come on all--don't be this fan. I know the Avs and its fans are terrible but it's still just a game. I always go with light-hearted and good-natured ribbing instead of the nasty and spiteful kind. It seems to have worked for me thus far in case you all or looking for pointers.
