  1. Well, yeah. and Miller don't play on the power play.
  2. That was a typo, my bad lol. 3 games in 4 nights. But there was the world cup, plus there is this thing where each team gets 5 days off in a row this season. There is also still the All-Star game.
  3. You don't get OEL without a package that starts off with Larkin under any circumstances. We also cannot wait FOUR YEARS to finally acquire a defenseman. Mantha is exactly the type of guy you give up to get a guy like Trouba. You gotta give to get. We'd have to clean out the farm to land OEL.
  4. It will definitely be easier to move Howard next summer if he can keep playing at this level all season. Though with a condensed schedule this season, it's a good idea to have to goalies who can get it done. We're gonna see a lot of back to backs and 3 games in 4 nights situations this season.
  5. Really digging Sproul's game thus far. Hope he can keep it up.
  6. I don't get the top minutes in GR vs 4th line minutes in the NHL. You need to play in the NHL to learn how to play in the NHL. Period. Surely he should be called up and have Sheahan move down to the fourth line. But even 10 minutes a game with AA and would be more beneficial to him at this time than playing in GR.
  7. Sure Drew can kill penalties. But so can Helm, Abby, Sheahan,, Nielsen. AA and Larkin should also be seeing some PK time with their speed. All Miller is doing is keeping a guy like Mantha in the AHL when he should be learning to play at the NHL level. Having guys like Miller on the ice means you usually aren't playing WITH the puck very much. Our 4th line would score even more if a guy like Sheahan was on it instead. For the record, I do not hate Drew Miller. I've stuck up for him a lot in the past. But the team is at a point where they just don't need him anymore.
  8. Especially if Drew Miller was the front man.
  9. When you have to choose between a high-end dman and a high-end winger, you go with the dman. They are a hell of a lot more difficult to come by these days. Giving up Mantha would not be foolish. It would be a realistic asset to have to part ways with to acquire a potential #1 defenseman.
  10. Christ, how did I overlook Helm as a pk guy?
  11. I have no issue with AA on the 4th line if it means benching Miller and rolling 4 lines. Tatar-Larkin-Hank Abby-Nielsen-Mantha Goose-Helm-Vanek Miller and Ott as healthy scratches who can fill in from time to time when need be. That is how it should be. But instead, we have two lines built to defend, including one of the top 6. It's stupid. Abby-Nielsen, as pk forwards. Literally no use for Miller on this team anymore.
  12. How Sheahan gets to play in that spot so Miller can be in the lineup over Mantha is gross.
  13. If Mantha gets us Trouba, it must be done. Not like Blashill is gonna play him anyway. At least Trouba would make the roster by default.
  14. Hicketts is a guy who has all the tools and the right mindset to be an NHL player despite his size.
  15. Helm is exactly where he should be. Centering the third line. With you on the others, though. Sheahan should be on the fourth.
