In Topic: Why is Kindl not playing?

Yesterday, 08:44 AM

Limited minutes and the whole team is strong defensively. Clearly no one in the coaching staff or media thinks very much of him, which tells me he's not learning and reaching that potential he should have hit a couple years ago.

Surprised he's going back to Ottawa. All the reports said he cut all ties when he moved.

In Topic: Saluting the fans

I hate the salute. It's forced and meaningless and fans already demand it. If they do something because they have to, it doesn't mean anything. I doubt the players are thinking 'gosh I love these fans.' It's muscle memory by now. Like wearing an American flag pin on your suit.

Let's also give some credit to Johan Franzen.  He seems to be putting up the most consistent numbers he's had since 2009.  He's not tearing the world apart, and is only on pace for something like 25 goals I think, but he's scoring every few games which is what we need him to do.  I'd gladly take 25 goals instead of 30-35 if it means he's scoring in 25 games instead of 10.


In Topic: Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Maybe , maybe not ... Doubt we called 29 teams asking about nestrasil

Just seems detroit loses players to waivers a lot more than other teams

 

I think it's because we always seem to have a lot of bottom 6 level talent to waive.  No one anyone would trade for but for a free waiver pickup they'd take the risk.
