Whoa did you see that KO on Kostopolos?

Yeah.  Tough to see. But that being said maybe next time he won't go after a guy for a clean hit.



Carlo isn't hurt yet. But from what I heard I thought he has a ton of talent...just can't stay healthy.

Cola has looked good tonight.  Made some nice little moves to get the puck out of his own end.

Because that was intentional lol. I thank their goalie more than franzen.

 

Actually, it was intentional. The speed and trajectory of the shot were geared toward generating a rebound, a fact that JR picked up on and mentioned. Presumably he knows a good deal about hockey.

Martin is a great 4th liner. Oddly, the WSJ did an article on his training during the lock-out.

Besides that, Franzen just slows Pavel down. I know lots of people are complaining about Pavs playing with Abs, but I like the way Abs is playing. He is working hard, finishing his hits, hustling, screening the goalie and now scoring goals. I think he is a new version of Homer for Pavs and it seems to be working. Franzen on the other hand looks slow, gives up the puck too easily and is making too many mistakes overall. This is where I think Kenny needs to make an upgrade for a guy like Gaborick or something in that nature.

Franzen may not be playing with the amount of fire and drive I'd like him to, but atleast he is making some skilled plays, getting pucks to the net, able to handle a pass and make a pass, win a puck battle, and generally do things that lead to offense. 


Abdelkader does nothing. Seriously. If he hustles it's not noticeable because he doesn't win pucks. If he hits, they're not big enough to be felt or seen. Watch him carefully. His stick is where puck possession goes to die. He's no faster than Franzen. He's not a top 6 player. Comparing him to Holmstrom is an insult to the Demoltion Man. Holmstrom was 10 times the player Abdelkader is and ever will be. Holmstrom had great hockey sense, he knew how to position himself, how to survive in the league despite being a bad skater, he made quick and good decisions with the puck, and worked harder and took more abuse than anyone. 

Abdelkader the "new version of Holmstrom"... talk about a downgrade.. christ.

 

Franzen gets the most undeserved hate on this board. Now he's worse than Abdelkader? Am I going insane?

Ericsson with a breakaway out of the box.  Nice pass by Mule. 

 

Looks like Halak got a piece of it.

No kidding.  That was an awful shift by Kindl in terms of decision making.  The last couple games he's looked like Kopecky out there, regularly getting crushed by guys.

Fat chance of anyone doing that.

It'll be like that next year too. The fighters in the east are generally much bigger than Tootoo.
