They're all bottom-sixers, though.

 
It's about money. Make the playoffs, make more money. Money > everything else.

Can't Nyquist play center?

Sooo Helms out at least another week according to KHAN!!

1 week for Helm usually means 1 month, let's not hold our breath.

He used to be a center, true. But he's doing incredibly well as a winger, so we're not gonna mess with that.

Not interested in serous discussion anymore..? ;)

Ok, i can see that. But, if you head in that direction, saying "we need to get in and get our youth to learn more", then you have to make not just the Legwand-Trade. Then you should've gone for an upgrade on D, too.

Holland has been after both Edler and Ehrhoff. The price for Kesler was in the realm of Nyquist+Mantha+1st, and the price for Edler was supposedly even higher. I didn't like giving up Jarnkrok but he's not in the same realm as Nyquist and Mantha.

Ok, if that really was the price Vancouver was asking for, I'm relieved Holland didn't do it because that is just crazy.

Can't Nyquist play center?


Nyquist is scoring more goals then anyone thought he would playing on the wing, when your team is having trouble scoring you don't put one of your top goal scorers at center to keep an unproven prospect around. Why mess with something that's working so well?

Gus is made of glass....wonder if they'll re-sign him next year because of this?  Whats the point in having a back-up if he can't be relied upon to be fit when you need him?


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Even with his injuries Gus might be a able to find a starting job next year, and I think Holland will go with Mrazek to save cap space.

Wonder if brodeur would be content being a backup/pushing howie for the starting job...?

If he was ok being #2 he'd stay in NJ.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
