  1. They have. Just sucks that they played a key role in us losing a low-scoring, physical game, i.e. the kind of game where you'd like to see them thrive. Still, I'll take a loss like this over an 8-2 drubbing all day every day.
  2. Based on the bits and pieces of the game that I was able to catch, we actually played surprisingly well. Howard looked good. Seemed like we didn't give the Pens much. Unfortunately, we gave them juuuust enough. Shout out to Helm for doing that Helm thing where he makes one stupid mistake and it costs us dearly. Shout out to Blashill for putting Glendening on the ice in OT. Shout out to Glendening for rewarding Blashill's trust with a game-deciding OT penalty.

    Trade deadline bait available this year?

    AA for Dumba, straight up.

    Cholowski Sucks

    Smith. Kindl. Ouellet. Marchenko. Sproul. Backman. Almqvist. We've seen some s***. The only reason I'm not doubting Hronek is that he's just been that good.
  5. Doom Eternal or the hockey game?

    I hear ya. I've been trying to prepare myself for 4th -- mentally, physically, spiritually. It's tough. The rise of Stutzle, Rossi, et al. makes it a little easier, though.

    I like Rossi a lot, don't get me wrong. I also like the idea of the Wings pulling a St. Louis and winning a Cup with a hard-working, blue-collar, decidedly unsexy lineup that, on paper, is the underdog against every one of its four postseason foes. Live by the parity, die by the parity. I don't even strongly believe being 5'9 has to be this huge obstacle to becoming an NHL centerman if the player is otherwise physically built for it (and Rossi is) and he plays harder and smarter than ~97% of his opponents (and Rossi does). Hell, my main concern with man mountain prospects like Rasmussen and Cozens and Byfield is that life has been easy for them because they're so much bigger and stronger than their peers. If you're a 5'9 centerman and you're performing so well that you might as well be 6'4, you're a baller. Yzerman, as we know, likes that kind of player. (See: Tyler Johnson, Braden Point, Yanni Gourde, Ethan Phillips.) I'm just sayin'. Our 2020 1st is a really, really important pick. "Yeah, he's 5'9, but I'm not sure that'll matter. And, yeah, maybe he isn't your typical '1C,' but I'm not sure that'll matter" isn't really where my head and heart are at right now. But I hear your logic and I don't necessarily hate it.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Kotkaniemi broke his hand tho. Looks like he got a lot of helmet.

    I would trade Larkin + AA for Draisaitl in a heartbeat.

    I'm pumped too. I was afraid no one would step up and make things really interesting. Rossi's 5'9, so I wouldn't bet big money on him becoming a gamebreaking 1C -- and a future gamebreaking 1C is what we should be hoping for if we're taking a centerman in the top 4. That's not to say Rossi isn't awesome, mind you.

    This is one of the reasons I like Button. He says how he feels, doesn't worry about prevailing narratives.
