They can't bring up Tatar, so yes, it does make too much sense. Until the Griffins are out of the playoffs, we aren't going to grab anyone from the Griffs unless an injury happens and it requires an emergency call-up. Blame the Griffins making the playoffs I suppose?


Oh I did not know that. I knew that was the rule after the deadline but I thought once playoffs started you could use anyone. It's probably because the Griffs aren't usually in the playoffs. My bad

Sammy has potted some timely goals in the past. Here's hoping he can sink one tonight


You gotta be the QB to win the MVP baby! You can't be the punter.

Didn't we do this in game 1 of the 2008 Finals, where Sammy scored two goals?

 

Problem is, this is 2013, not 2008.  This organization needs to stop living in the past so much.  



Sammy can hit, too.  He plays a different game than Abdelkader, but maybe mixing up our attack won't be such a bad thing.

 

I still don't get why Tootoo isn't allowed to play.  Isn't this type of series exactly what we got him for? He must be annoyed.  I don't remember him making stupid mistakes or anything to justify his removal from the lineup.

 

Hit what?  A bong?


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

Samuelsson was on the ice with Franzen and Filppula in that series.

I know. But I remember him playing on the top line for game 1.  
 
Or was it game 2?

Abdelkader, Samuelsson, Bertuzzi, Cleary. When those are your options on the first line, none of it is good. Speaks to the desperate need for a goal-scoring winger this summer.

For the last several summers, actually.

 

I've given up on Holland getting that player.  He doesn't want to overspend, even though that's what current market price is.

This all day.

 

At least this guy will actually shoot the damn puck.

 

at the logo and at the shin guards.  He isn't called the Logo Hunter/Shin Guard Assassin for nothing.

Exactly whom has he had the opportunity to overspend on?

Unfortunately, Samuelsson.  Those are the only types of players he overspends on anymore.  Same with overspending on Quincey.  

 

We'll never convince a good top 6 winger to come here without spending big.  Otherwise, we'll have to develop one, and we don't have any legit scoring wingers in GR right now.  Let alone, big physical ones.

Look at who was on ice for the GWG. Thought for a moment it was a Griffins game. LET THE KIDS PLAY!

No one. Absolutely no one. Not a single FA. Not a single trade possibility. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

The best part was in the post game interview babs said Sammy looked good out there, I listened to the game on 97.1 (the radio announcer is the absolute worst) cause I was at work, but from the replays I saw Sammy didn't look all that great out there

Sammy played his perimeter, safe game. He wasn't 'bad', but he's a depth scorer that's it. He's good along the boards, won some battles, didn't turn the puck over too much, skated hard.

 

I'll say this though, Samuelsson looked better than Bobby Ryan last night.

It is not very often you and I have the same opinion, I have to tell you, that last statement was dead on.

Ryan was off his game, he was a force the previous 3 games.

 

Perry had good chances, but he seemed just off to me too, I think they may be who he was referring to as "passengers" in his post game interview.
