  1. the salary cap knots you will have to perform to have Larkin, Mantha, Bertuzzi, and potentially a 3 year improved Zadina on this team and not have a single spot filled on the top line are going to be wild

    think about where Ovi's totals would be if he didnt lose time during his prime from the lockout

    He’s played 35 games in the NHL. I’m not sure how anyone can label his career anything at this point. Maybe it’s only a “hot streak”, maybe it’s a stepping stone into something else. But at least for now he’s been good for the team. Since Dec 1st, the only one on the team who has scored more points than Zadina is Larkin. So keep riding that and see if he continues to grow.

    The other half of that is finding a willing buyer. A quick look through the recent past shows 1st overalls are rarely traded to begin with, and when they are have generally tended to be traded with another asset (2nd rounder, player, etc) for something like a top 5 pick +/- 3rd rounder or middle-tier player, which isn’t the haul we are necessarily talking about here. I don’t think GMs as a whole are as dumb as armchair GMs believe. Trades don’t happen because we want them to.
  5. Literally would be the only thing I watch tbh if I tune in. The traditional all star game never appealed to me because, well, I’ve never cared to watch a bunch of stars half-ass it out there and try to look pretty with their passes that don’t matter, and there is no incentive to really put forth a serious effort by them. The woman’s game might actually be a competition. edit: maybe everything already happened? I haven’t been paying close enough attention apparently

    Some people are incapable of conceptualizing that a team cannot remain a Stanley cup contender for 30 years straight in a salary cap era. So then rash decisions happen and quality people are removed simply for the sake of change. So instead of proven winners in Babcock and Holland running the ship we have two unproven commodities. Meanwhile the personelle we let walk are continuing to ice competitive teams, just for different cities now.

    Yup. I'm not a Blashill fan, but frankly he's working with what he has.

    Note to Coach

    No, but if someone else wants the position, I dont think its unfair to expect them to earn it (ie score more than zero to one point). Unless of course we're advocating giving out positions based on expectation and not reality. For the record, I'm not necessarily advocating for Glendening's best spot on the team as a second line workhorse, but at the end of the day 2G 1A in 6 games isn't really all that *bad* for his role, so when we are talking about secondary scoring issues, I think there are about 7-8 other players/reasons you can point to before complaining about where Glendening is playing.

    I was most impressed with Hicketts and Cholowski, personally. Hicketts definitely doesn't play as small as he is. It didn't seem to be a hindrance on him at all; on the contrary, he seemed like the most aggressive, physical guy on the ice. Cholowski is 100% head looking up the ice, fast skating, quick outlet pass defensman. He was good at getting the puck out of the zone and up the ice without turning it over, and kept the puck moving around the O-zone from the blue line. He had a couple opportunistic pinches down low that the Wings were unable to capitalize on as well, but he found the quiet area of the ice and if a puck was able to get through to him he would have a golden opportunity at the net. Svechnikov looked dangerous a time or two, but overall didn't stand out all that much to me. Rasmussen had the goal, but other than that didn't really stand out much to me either.
