Good news for Cleary's knees, and thus, the core of our team

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

I don't think it matters much, but anything positive at this point is welcome. 

 

Key to the season will be health. Can't have yet another year with 400+ mangames lost.

Injuries for the 6th consecutive season, I'm sure.

Ya come to think of it. Isn't it time for a groin injury on someone getting out of bed or up the stairs or something...it's been awhile.

Least when berlander hurt his groin we knew it was from Kate upton....the wings ya not so much.

This. Teams are so unpredictable that this claim about the "easiest schedule" is worthless.

This actually kinda worries me.


"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible.

does anyone NOT remember last season?  We played up to and beat a LOT of the harder teams in the league. It was the Panthers and Islanders and Jets of the league that we could never play down to and they beat us all year long...

exactly. this article is just a product of the slow part of the year (hockey news wise).

 

& leftwinger has a good point as well. the wings seem to play to the other team's level. I'd love for them to change that trend....

What I remember the most is that we did really well in the early part of the season despite Howard playing bad and us icing a 3rd line like Bertuzzi-Andersson-Cleary and Weiss completely failing. 

 

Let's see what happens when we have Pav and Z healthy, backed up by Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan and Helm, possibly a contributing Weiss and a Howard playing like himself. That team is a good team.

People forget so quickly that we are TERRIBLE against bad teams. Remember all the barn burners vs Florida and the Isles last year? Easiest doesn't mean squat, if we still healthy we'll have a shot at the playoffs. But since we're bringing back the exact same roster as last year, should we expect the injuries to just go away?
