Babs' comments lead me to believe that the Wings are hiding an injury to a top 6-er & that he's keeping Bert & Sammy in to fill a top 6 role if that player goes down during the game.
Ok. Wonder if it's Cleary. I wondered why Sammy was on the 4th line rather than on the second, where he has shown that he would excel. Maybe Cleary is a game-time decision? Or this is a ruse and he'll be out, but they didn't want to show their true lines yet?
Or, as you say, if Cleary can't finish the game, Sammy could step up, but frankly, if I had doubts about Cleary finishing the game, I'd sit him and say, "Sorry, it's the playoffs. I need to roll 4 lines all game, especially with our tendency to go to OT."
BTW, I regret that I could give your post about "fear leads to hate, etc." only one like. I'd have given it 10 if I could.
Money on the board! Current total: $2
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
