AA has 4 goals and 7 points in 19 games and Jurco has 4 goals and 6 points in 39 games. Yet somehow Jurco is first line and AA is 3rd line?
Why are fans still so high on Jurco? He's being outplayed by guys younger and less experienced than he is. Jurco shouldn't be anything more than a third line winger till he can show he can play 1st line minutes.
Jurco has looked good while playing on that top line with Z & D, AA looks great on any line but I would just love to see him with Goose. Nyquist is one of the few players on our team that can make plays at the speed AA and himself are going. Jurco is liked by a lot of people as if he ever gets going he'll be a beast, best case of this happening is with Datsyuk-again just my opinion of what Id like to see
McCollum has never really been given a shot. Has he even started one NHL game yet? I know he's came in in relief a couple times, but that's it. He's a former first round pick. I know he hasn't been the greatest in the AHL. he's had ups and downs, but i'd like to see him get a chance at the backup role in Detroit before he's fully written off as nothing better than an AHL goalie. If he doesn't work out, so be it.
If this means 5 game trial I am down. If you are suggesting we go into a season after trading Howard with McCollum as our official #2 I would be very, very nervous.
Great pics man! Can't wait until I go to The Joe on March 12th vs. the Rangers.
I always notice Zetterberg always has to stand behind Datsyuk when he's in the faceoff circle during warm ups. Must be a superstition? I have a couple pictures of them, one taken in Detroit another one in Buffalo.
I am really liking the goalie situation at the moment. Its not too often we have a tandem like these two...I cannot help but think that Mrazek will no doubt be the better goalie at the end up the day but this competition will be great for Jim
He'd been tearing up the league and he was constantly mentioned because of his undrafted to number one c story, I had assumed he was a household name.
I wasn't being facetious, by the way, I was generally intrigued by you not knowing him. He was on sportscenter, so he must be known.
Saying it twice doesn't make it magically happen.
Three times, however.
Truth is my mother is a Tampa fan...I think I may have heard his name so much from her I just 100% disregarded him as an existing human being methinks...
