Mule out tonight

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It'll be interesting to see how Hank and Brunner work with a guy who will skate like he gives a s***. I know he's been skating harder but that doesn't change the fact he still floats. He just doesn't float as much. In a scenario where you have two skilled players who work well together, it's always fun to see who will mesh well with them. One plus one doesn't always equal two in the case of chemistry, it's not always the obvious choice. It could be someone like Cleary or even Eaves, who knows. I'd use this as a chance to bring up Nyquist and see if he can do something on that line.

I'm more concerned with the PP. Mule's been good there. He doesn't have to skate much. It sounds odd but I'd put Abby up there and tell him to park his ass. I think it's just the type of thing he'd be good at. Minimal dangling, minimal puck movement, just sitting on the crease.

I wouldn't mind seeing Eaves up on the second line for a period or something. The dude can skate and is good defensively too when need be.

Whine all you want about Franzen, but he produces. Just because he doesn't put forth his all in every game doesn't mean he isn't valuable.

FFS when is Nyquist going to get a chance?

If Franzen goes on IR, that's when Gus will be called up. There's no space on the roster tonight unless they want to send one of Lash/Tats/Andersson down.

As much as I'd like to see Nyquist get his chance I'd rather have the mule back next game as opposed to him going on IR.

Either way, we'll know more tomorrow.

I think these last two games are Cleary getting his last chances. He can't play effectively on a checking line anymore; if he can't score alongside very good players either, then he's useless.
