Well a definite improvement but that lack of scoring touch remains, hopefully it doesn't go on much longer.

Agreed. Emmerton is done on Friday when Helm comes back. It was his pass in the neutral zone that got Jimmy run over.

Having Datsyuk on the wing is killing me.  He's not a shooter and he's a better passer than Zetterberg.  He's completely wasted on the wing.  Switch them or split them up Babs!

 

All in all good period though.  I liked Abby, Brunner, and Tootoo.  Lashoff looked decent as well. 

 

and the fact that pasha is the natural center compared to hank being the natural winger. the stats show, pasha is the better center of the two. pasha would rather play make than finish it off. hank has the finishing touch with the play making capability. hank should be winging while pasha is creating space and running the 2-way game. we looked damn good that period, at first it was very disgusting but we shaped it up and had some moments where we looked real good. i'm still holding to my words that this lineup is going to impress a lot of people, just let them get into things.

Be serious.

 

This team has no chance of winning the Stanley Cup without Emmerton.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Right now I'm kinda thinking that but Sammy instead of Emmerton. Sammy has been complete garbage so far, giving Fil no help on the 2nd line.

Dorsett with 3-4 crosscheck on Dats... he should be the next on Tootoo's list...

Small player with big heart and bigger balls!!!

I would be surprised if they don't go tonight.

yeah datsyuk looks lost on wing. i dont nearly hear his name enough

He has yet to register his first SOG this season. 

 

I'm sure he'll be fine it's just strange.

I agree, and once you have Helm and Bert back they should really get rocking.  Defense is still scary, but playing better tonight...except for the two or three odd man rushes that thankfully didn't hurt us.

is Emmerton being a center THAT valuable to the coaches?

 

I believe it's because Emmerton is not waivor exempt and Nyquest is.

we have to use him as value, we can't send him down. we need the 4th line center right now until helmer comes back. unfortunately, he'll be a healthy scratch until we can package him or we're willing to lose him for nothing. he won't pass waivers. i really had hopes that he improved during the off-season but during the open practice on friday he had pissed me off, and quite frankly his play hasn't said anything so far. he has that punk attitude where he thinks he rates more than he has earned. just my opinion though.

Classic Dats threading the needle to Brunner though.  ;)

I'd rather get Emmerton out. Sammy has at least a bigger body we could use.

All the more reason why he needs to be carrying the puck more.

don't watch much of the Griffins but Sheahan seems to be a better option than Emmerton and Mursak

So Emmerton wouldn't pass waivers?

 

Is he really that valuable to other teams?

when helmer and bert return, I think this team turns around completely. that third line is essential to this team. i think it's going to cause a lot of problems to majority of 3rd lines in this league. they bring something that many 3rd lines can't match. defense is brutal, no one can deny that but it also motivates players. luckily we have some great 2-way players that are well spread out throughout the lines that hopefully can make it easier on the back end. there was no excuse for saturday's game, st.louis was allowed to throw outlet passes right down the middle like it was free range. we stay healthy and i hold to my word that we'll do some damage.
