Nah, Andersson has been excellent on the PK. Sheahan makes Cleary obsolete.


 

At least he's big and can skate.

Of course Cleary sits before Andersson. But as a 4th line C when everyone is healthy Sheahan would be a beast rather than Andersson. Also, for those saying Andy can PK - people forget how good Sheahan's PK skills are. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Sheahan and Tatar do something positive on nearly every shift together. Plenty of scoring chances, but need to bury one soon.

Sheahan and Tatar are making good plays, but sometimes it looks like they are trying to finish off AHL style.

Z looks hurt to me. He was stretching his back before face-offs last game - i think he is holding on until dats comes back then he will go down - i hope I'm wrong

Outshoot them, outchance them, outplay them, get lots of juicy PP opportunities, fail to convert on all God-given chances, give up a lame goal, wilt. Wings hockey.

Why do you so frequently say this in the middle of close games?


Idk do you feel I jinx it or something? I just thought it was a huge opportunity gifted to us and if you don't do anything with it you tend to lose

With a bad back, there are only so many times he can carry this team to victory.

Nyquist is definitely off. It's like he's been dislocated from real time by half a second. Which, in the NHL, is a big deal.

C'mon ppl, sounds like defeatist talk.  We're only down by one.  It could be worse, we could be up by two.

The difference in this game is failing to do anything on the power play.

Yup. Having this roster you have to take advantage if you expect to be the only team this year to beat the ducks at home. Still playing a solid game but that's not enough against the ducks

We have Samuelsson and Bertuzzi on the first unit, Kindl and Cleary on the 2nd. I'm honestly not sure if we even have an advantage on the PP.

With the line up we have out there scoring a couple on the PP would have been so damn huge. Giving up that first goal was deflating. Maybe it's just one game but damn the Ducks look so different without Getzlaf, wow.

Of course Cleary sits before Andersson. But as a 4th line C when everyone is healthy Sheahan would be a beast rather than Andersson. Also, for those saying Andy can PK - people forget how good Sheahan's PK skills are. 

 

And these skills have been demonstrated in how many NHL games? In how much shorthanded ice time?

Being without four top-six forwards makes scoring quite a bit more difficult.

I want to complain. Really, I do. But we should all keep things in perspective tonight. We've got something like 20 million dollars worth of players out with injuries and we're playing the top team in the league, in their barn, where they haven't lost in regulation this season. Sammy, Cleary, Bert, Kindl - all these Hockeytown Heroes (and more!) are playing important minutes, and being counted on to, like, actually do stuff.

 

I'm not making excuses, and I hate moral victories. It's just, in theory, we should be down 5-0 after 40 mins.
