Flip hasn't put up this year, yet...I not thinking about what we are doing with him or his overall performance even until this hockey team has played it's last game. I think we will win our game on Monday and move on to the WCF, I really hope Val is a big part of that win. LGW
Cleary has been a beast in front of the net, especially the last couple games. Even if he isn't putting up many points, he has been very valuable on that line
You are correct, in this case I just feel Mule-Fil-Clears was a horrid combo. It's not Clearys fault that the two big sluggers on that line had zero chemistry...but now he has Fil and Z, time will tell now. he seemed to be gaining a bit of steam so we shall see. Nothing I would love to see more is "Clutch Clears" again!
I would rather Sammy have those 6 shifts then Emmerton. I like the Mule with Pavs and Abby, I really hope Z and Fil can get Clears going here because if he's going to play top 6 the guy has to produce, period. The kid line will have their hands full tonight and the Bert should be feeling better out there so hopefully he'll make the Hawks feel his presence! Close game here 4-3 WINGS
I love that we get to see this series. We will certainly see some awesome hockey with these two teams facing off, is Tatar going to be seen at all this post season? We could use his young scoring touch here
That is what his team of defense attorneys here are saying though. DeKeyser is apparently already perfect in both the defensive and offensive aspects of his game and god forbid someone would criticise him on either of those, that would just be awful...
No one said he was perfect...People are just saying that offense isn't a "big" part of his game and that is correct thus far in his young career. Too much focus on this part of Danny D's job back there that's for sure, just keep looking the way he's looking and make the frigging playoffs, we can talk about Danny becoming a sniper in June...
Congrats Jimmy! Look 6 years is perfect imo, Mzarek will more then likely spend 2-3 more years in GR then come up and back up Howard for a year or two then hopefully take over the net while Jimmy backs up for Mzarek for his remanding year or two. All while Mzarek is still on a nice petit rookie contract.
(I just noticed how many times I said "year or two", giving myself some grace I guess )
