  1. Pre-Season Games

    I don't think so. Booth played the last two games. One of which (last game) he was a last minute sub in for Parenteau, who wasn't able to go. It's understandable that Booth doesn't play a 3rd consecutive game. I've been much more impressed with Booth in his two games than Parenteau in his one game though.

    I hope you're right on the first part. As for the second part, of course he could be a serviceable top pair with the right partner. Most NHL defensemen could. Ian White looked good next to Lidstrom. Marc Methot looked good next to Karlsson. As of right now, I see DeKeyser as a solid 2nd pair defenseman, that can play limited minutes on the top pair. I hope he proves me wrong and has a huge bounce back season, eating big minutes on the top pair.

    Never mind, apparently Zetterberg will sit tomorrow due to a minor neck issue. Kronwall's knee is fine, back seized up day before camp. Expects to get in 1 or 2 preseason games. Bertuzzi has "mid-body" injury... Lines they skated with today in practice... Likely lineup for tomorrow (aside from Z) Tatar - Zetterberg - Nyquist Mantha - Larkin - Frk Helm - Nielsen - Sheahan Parenteau - Glendening - Witkowski DeKeyser - Daley Kronwall - Green Ericsson - Jensen Howard starting.

    Why Zetterberg? Is he banged up?

    Not ideal, but yes, I'd rather see that.
  6. Pre-Season Games

    We dressed an AHL team, against the Chicago Blackhawks (minus Toews). I'm not sure if anyone should have expected any better than a 5 goal deficit. I'm thinking we'll have pretty much our opening night roster tomorrow night. So if we don't have a decent showing in that one, that's when we should start to worry... especially if Boston dresses a similarly talented squad as we did last night...

    I don't think anyone would say that DeKeyser has been living up to that contract. He isn't massively overpaid at $5M, but lower $4M would have been ideal. He's not a top 2 defenseman, but a solid top 4. If he's utilized properly, I think he could have a bounce back season. Unfortunately though, Blashill will likely overplay him, 22+ minutes a night in a top pair role. It's a bit of a stretch though to say that there are 215 defensemen in the league better than him like kjw25 is suggesting...

    I was thinking either Ford or Esposito. I think it is Ford though. Yeah, they must have that f***ed up. Pearson definitely isn't playing. Hasn't played at all in training camp / preseason due to college / university restrictions.
  9. Pre-Season Games

    I know who he is, but Pearson isn't playing. He is still playing at University of Maine.
  10. Riley Sheahan ( aka Mr Teletubby)

    Well obviously...
  11. Ken Holland contract extension watch

    You lose all credibility with this one...
  12. Riley Sheahan ( aka Mr Teletubby)

    You want to complain about Sheahan getting an A in a preseason game? Please tell us who is more deserving over him in this game?...
  13. Pre-Season Games

    Huh?
  14. Pre-Season Games

    I do like Frk on that left side on the power-play...
  15. Wonder what the odds are for the 1st overall...

    Svechnikov with 2 goals tonight in his first OHL game with Barrie.
