    Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    Fair enough. Anyway, I never responded to your previous posts about me so I think my post addresses those.

    Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    Clearly a reference to me, so I'll respond. And I'll try again to explain what I saying before. My whole point before was that I thought it was an overreaction for the game 7-6 game. This was because Phiily has let a lot of goals against throughout this year (among the most of playoff teams). and because the game was against Tampa who have a ridiculous high scoring offence (a full 18 GF more than the next closest team) an have blown out many teams and better goalies this year. You may call that making an excuse, but I think it's being realistic and I do think you should take factors into consideration. One highscoring shootout loss to the best team in the league doesn't mean much to me when taking that into consideration and that he was still largely good for them at that point. Not every discussion needs to be black and white. I've argued for keeping Mrazek to the end of the year to see if he'd continue his resurgence, but I've not been blanket posting positive for Mrazek - I argued against others about supposed mistreatment of Mraz and how I never thought Mrazek earned the #1 spot when he was given it, etc. Yet you made it into an argument against some over the top fanboy who was too "emotionally attached to these players". Seemed like you were arguing with a caricature or deliberatly misrepresenting my posts. Was quite annoying, but shouldn't have called you a troll - apologies. Someone did steal my car the day before and maybe my patience wasn't where it should be (Or is that making another excuse, haha). Anyway, Mrazek has played rough for an extended period now and it's looking more like his resurgence was shortlived. Seems more like a good decision to trade him and I was wrong about keeping him. C'est la vie. Bring on Larsson as the goalie of the future?

    3/12 GDT - Red Wings at Sharks - 10:30 PM EST

    One thing I keeping watching for is that Larkin is almost a 50 pt. guy for the first time - just needs 1 more pt. I remember in a pre-season interview, he was asked what he'd consider a successful bounce-back year and he said getting to 50 points. I'm sure he'll get more than that by the end of the year, but, anyway it'll be a good milestone. So, go Larkin!

    I think Eliot's a possibility. Can't see this article unless you subscribe, but the blurb on google news say "Brian Elliott was on the ice before the Flyers' morning skate Monday. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall hopes Elliott can return to action before the end of the regular season." Apparently, Philly hasn't said anything on Neuvirth, though, so that probably means it's serious, but who knows.

    Damn, you caught that before I deleted it. Love ya kick, but you are really annoying to try to discuss with now. So many examples of trying to dumb down what I was saying or just talking past the other person - like saying to LeftWinger that Mrazek isn't one of the best goalies in the league even though no one said remotely close to that. And, yes, I know you think I reported you, but I absolutely did not. It's really annoying for me that I got dragged into that conflict. I don't know what to tell ya on that. I miss the old kick, we don't need a troll for the board. Come back to us!

    10 goals in 2 games: 4+6. I'd say Mrazek's had 5 good games before 1 meh game and then a definite bad one. Looks like he might be having another rough one right now, though the goals haven't been bad so far (and back-to-back is always a less likely win against a fresh team). Allowing 3 goals in a row only happened once in the game. Not making excuses - discussing, putting context.

    But you know that the goal added to the shootout winner isn't the same as a goal against. The difference between this game and those other 2 games is that they tied it up and got through OT. Should that really be thought of as a worse game than when they simply got blown out in regulation? That seemed to be your point.

    No it's not. Flyers aren't the best defensive team. They've also let in 6 against ANA and NSH earlier in the season as well (7-6 in this game, but last 1 is just SO pt.). And also 5 to NYI, OTT, SJS, PIT (twice), WSH(twice). VAN, NYR, NJD and TB in their previous meeting (obviously with a different goalie). They're kind of the high powered offence with young D still learning. It's why I don't think they're going far in the playoffs. I feel like this is a bit of us having Mrazek under the microscope. I mean, It was a 6 to 6 shoutout game so Vasilevisky did just as badly. And he also has 10 goals in the past 2 games. And he's probably among the best goalies in the league right now? (Rinne probably) Are Tampa going to bench him for the rest of the season? Some off games or high scoring games just happen. I watched the 2nd half of this one and he wasn't really bad, but his rebound control remains one of his big shortcomings.

    Forgot there was a game tonight. Blues are in freefall and I think they've lost 7 straight so we'll see how this goes.

    Tatar traded to Golden Knights for 2018 1st, 2019 2nd & 2021 3rd

    Apparently is not the word you're looking for. When things are apparent, they are clearly visible or understood. If Z was a spy for a bearded race of aliens from Venus he wouldn't say it publicly either. Don't trust people making stuff up like I just did (or did I? dun dun dun).

    Next contracts for the young guns

    Agreed to this part. I was responding to chaps asking what he'd done to deserve 6 mill. Was comparing there situations as young guys 3 years in the league being locked up long term, not really the dollar amounts. And I do agree that that would slot Dylan at around 6 million. I just don't think you commit 8 years of 6 mill to a guy that had such a sophmore slump like his last year.

    Next contracts for the young guns

    Nuge is actually a good comparable. He signed that after his 3rd year and he'd had 2 out 3 years where he was a 50+ pt. player (and only played 62 games in one of those years) and the year he wasn't, was the lockout year, but his 24 pts would be around 50 or just below if equated to a whole season. To me that was definitely a record to demand 6 mill. People are really down on RNH now, but that wasn't the case early in his career. He outproduced Larkin in every compareable year (though he might get more than RNH's 3rd year tally of 56 pts. this year). Plus Larkin had that down 2nd year. And just thinking of the Nuge's dropoff, such would be the gamble of signing Larkin to a similar deal. i like me some Larkin, but maybe we should go bridge deal here for cap reasons and with Larkin's last year, I still think there's some uncertainty with him.

    Grade the deadline

    How does Sheahan fit into that theory? I didn't see any conflict there whatsoever. Or do you mean Ton Wilson or Sproul? Those guys also I can't think of any conflict. And, yes, 5 trades, not 3, this year.

    Wings Interested In Resigning Green

    I've been undecided, but I do want Green back. I do think we have too many vets for a rebuilding team, though, and I think we should clear a spot on the back end by the end of the next year for either Hronek or Hicketts. It's Kronwall last year next year, so it's really only a problem for next year. If Kronwall goes through injury woes the problem takes care of itself, but he's been pretty sturdy this year. Looking at our capfriendly page, for next year, Ericsson's NTC just means that he gets a 19 team no-trade list. And Daley's NTC just means that 10 days before the deadline, he can provide a 15 team no-trade list. So those could be options for trades if the young guys really look like they're ready and there's no injuries.
