I think it has more to do with not having an enforcer. Opposing teams might think twice about dangling on Howard if Punchy McGrattan was staring them down.


What if Babcock and Mcgrattan stared at each other? There'd be a dimensional paradox. Time would stop as the world rips itself apart at an atomic level eventually imploding in on itself forming a super dense mega black hole.

And that's why Mcgrattan can never play for us.

Pull the goalie in ot. Have a little powerplay. Couldn't be worse than what's going on.


I read somewhere,If you are scored on in ot with the goalie pulled you forfeit the single point for the tie. 





84.2 Overtime – Regular-season – Extra Attacker - A team shall be allowed to pull its goalkeeper in favor of an additional skater in the overtime period. However, should that team lose the game during the time in which the goalkeeper has been removed, it would forfeit the automatic point gained in the tie at the end of regulation play, except if the goalkeeper has been removed at the call of a delayed penalty against the other team. Should the goalkeeper proceed to his bench for an extra attacker due to a delayed penalty call against the opposing team, and should the non-offending team shoot the puck directly into their own goal, the game shall be over and the team that was to be penalized declared the winner.

Once the goalkeeper has been removed for an extra attacker in overtime during the regular-season, he must wait for the next stoppage of play before returning to his position. He cannot change “on the fly.” If he does, a bench minor penalty shall be assessed for having an ineligible player.

It was reported that Weiss was rotating in on the 1st line with goose - Z - Abby. I wounder if he will replace Abby, I can see them dropping Goose to the 3rd line. 



Here are the lines and defense pairs they skated with today:

Gustav Nyquist-Henrik Zetterberg-Justin Abdelkader (Stephen Weiss rotating in)

Tomas Tatar-Pavel Datsyuk-Darren Helm

Daniel Cleary-Riley Sheahan-Tomas Jurco

Drew Miller-Luke Glendening-Joakim Andersson (Daniel Cleary rotating in)

On defense:

Niklas Kronwall-Jonathan Ericsson

Kyle Quincey-Danny DeKeyser

Brendan Smith-Xavier Ouellet

Jakub Kindl- Brian Lashoff (appear to be extras)

In goal:

Jimmy Howard (starting Friday vs. Islanders)

Petr Mrazek


I just hope they find away to have Ouellet stay up.

you're a disgrace to the force Bobrovsky!

Bobrovsky, hand in your gun and badge. You're a loose cannon.

Looks like Kindl and Lashoff out. They need to put Weiss on IR to keep Ouellet.


I like that defensive line up....
