Semin is a lazier floater than Franzen. I could not possibly be happier that he re-signed with Carolina.
That's a bad reputation that may or may not have had SOME truth to it at times in Washington, but ask any Carolina fan and they will say it's definitely not true this season. Actually he's been praised for his hard work, even defensively. And of course he's putting up points.
It's a lot of money but it could turn out to be worth it. Looks like Semin and Staal have really found eachother.
We didn't have much after the 1st period offensively, and made a ton of defensive mistakes and gave the puck away constantly.
Luckily we have Howard. For all those who say "elite goalies should be able to steal a game for their team, therefore Howard is not elite"... well, I give you exhibit A. Not that it's the first time Howard's done it, far from.
Huge points. We need to keep rolling so Holland feels comfortable making a splash at the deadline.
Don't they say every year it's a deep draft? And even when they don't, I'm sure guys picked late still have become very good players. There are no sure things in the draft unless you're picking top 10. Maybe even top 5 or top 3.
Wings won't be picking that low anyway, so it doesn't make sense to abandon this year for a mid-to-late 1st round pick. Playoffs are a crapshoot and no matter what the pessimists on this board say, if the Wings get in and get hot, they could make a run.
Awful 2 games. This team is so hard to get a handle on. Feels like Filppula is definitely needed to kick Abby/Cleary out of the top 6. Z also needs to find his game or rest if he's injured, he was awful tonight except for like 1 great shift in OT.
