I'm not sure what game you were watching, but other than the last 10 minutes of the 1st period, Canada dominated. Price was clearly rusty, in my opinion, all 3 goals were terrible...some could argue 1, but the other 2 were simply bad....he was rusty. Other than those 10 minutes in the 1st, Canada outshot them 41-7 I think.
Edit - I think was for sure though....that game was far more intense than the NA vs Europe game.
Well it deosn't matter how many shots, you still have to be ahead at the end of the third.
points don't tell the whole story. He's the third rh D on their roster which means either he gets less time or he plays his off wing, something not everyone can effectively do. No, hes not a guarantee to be a top pair D, bit nobody is, and he has a better chance than anyone Detroit has now. As for Mrazek, he had a good half season them was hot garbage after mid February, and there's a long list of goalies who impressed early and flamed out, so there's no guarantee there either. Would I for sure do Mrazek for Trouba, I dont know. I'd damn sure consider it though. A forward other than Larkin plus a d going to Winnipeg, that's a no-brainer. But it's a moot point since we all know Holland is as capable of making a trade as a eunuch is of becoming a dad.
I'm sorry but that's ridiculous in my opinion. Mrazek is our future. We haven't had a goalie like this in?
Ott was never a guy who would "stop" anything. Aside from the fact that fighting doesn't deter anything ever, even IF it did, I sincerely doubt the deterrent value of a 190 lb, loudmouth who lost most of his career fights.
I disagree and besides fighting makes great entertainment. You never see anyone at a hockey game when a fight breaks out just sitting and yawning do you?
To me it would seem that he knew this team wasn't going anywhere and he knew he was still young enough to have a chance to play with his countrymen, so that's probably the reason why he went back. And to me, I'm perfectly fine with that.
