Weiss had less then 10 minutes tonight... We were struggling yet no change in the lines.

Having Ericsson on the ice at the same time as Datsyuk and Zetterberg hurts our offense. Just saying.

I don't know if playing strong d and puck possession against Denmark of all teams is really all that impressive...

 

Yeah, except that they have done it to every single team they have played so far...

Hopefully for his sake he learns how to be a team player

 

This is the issue I found with Drouin last year as well. He played with Mantha but a lot of the times he skated around trying to do everything himself. Mantha finished the tournament with the highest scoring despite it, but it really screwed Canada later in the rounds especially Finland.

1-0 Canada 10 minutes into the 1st.

So who were the guys saying helm is not a top 6/9 player and that Weiss is!?? Lol Helm is heart and soul he definitely should be 3rd line guy. Weiss give me a break.

 

:confused1:

 

Weiss has 12 points in 15 games and is +2

 

Helm has 18 points in 38 games and is a -1

 

One has played with Datsyuk and Zetterberg, the other hasn't. I have no idea in what world you live in if you think Weiss is the lesser player.

What's funny is people in Canada even agree that was a bad call. U.S didn't play there best besides Larkin of course. We will get you next game even though, hopefully there isn't gong show of calls everywhere.

 

I was at a bar and every Canadian said that goal wasn't a goal and shouldn't count, but it did. I highly doubt you will find another Canadian that disagrees with you. However saying US didn't play their best, well Canada didn't either then I guess?

 

 

So…

 

Canada is up 3-1 late in regulation.

 

Larkin scores to bring his team within one.

 

Canada scores an empty net goal off a couple DeAngelo screw-ups. Dagger in the heart. Horrribly deflating. Game is over.

 

Larkin scores again to bring his team within one again.

 

Canada scores another empty net goal off another terrible turnover made by another US defenseman. Horribly deflating. Game is over.

 

Larkin, if I’m not mistaken, didn’t see the ice after his second goal. Granted, there were only 45 seconds left, but, I mean, c’mon. He’s singlehandedly given your team a fighting chance, twice, in the span of a few minutes. He was pumped as hell. Give him the chance to net a legendary hat trick.

 

Am I alone in feeling this way?

 

 

No you are not alone. I was wondering the same thing and most Canadians were happy that he wasn't on the ice. Eichel looked to be extremely selfish out there and seemed like he was just trying to be a hero instead of worrying about tying the game.

What I mean, is you no longer have the "goal that shouldn't have counted" being the game winner as an excuse. 
Game 2-2, that BS goal for Canada makes it 3-2. If that goal never counted. U.S would be up 3-2 and your 2 empty net goals never happen either because we wouldn't of pulled our goalie.
But good try buddy, you won because the game is in Canada LOL


If.. If... If

Best of both worlds. Canada beats USA and Larkin scores 2 goals. Doesn't get better then that.

Oh yea Go Wings!

Yay. Weiss on the fourth again!!

 

I can't believe this, Babcock needs to wake the f*** up.

 

Helm should not be in the top 9 over Weiss, I'm sorry. Helm turns the puck over a lot trying to do too many things sometimes, he needs to simplify his game in order to play top 9 and not try to do everything 100mph.

Go Canada Go!

Also..tickets for the World Juniors have been sold in packages for sometime now. Nothing to do with being in Canada. lol

 

Canada looked deadly yesterday. Need a couple changes to the McDavid line, but man they were setting up beauties.

 

Domi is underrated.




#2558267 Rank our griffins d prospects

He played in 2 regular season and 10 playoff games last year.  That's not nearly enough to establish anything.  Tatar scored 39 points in 73 games last year and showed he was an NHL player.  Those are two entirely different situations.

 

So that takes away that he was our best dman last year in the playoffs? Go read what Babcock and Blash had to say about him. He is better then Evans and should have been playing over him. Plain and simple.
