In Topic: Fixing this mess....

Today, 06:33 AM

I wanted to go back to a point someone made in another thread about how people who use advanced analytics are acting like they know better than the coaches. This is not true at all. There's things in Blashill's coaching which makes sense and actually works and nobody is refuting the point. The perfect example is Brenden Smith who was sheltered and thrived under Blashill. Another example is demoting Ericsson to third line and promoting Dekeyser to first line. I'd say most of the stuff put out on ice is just fine and obviously Blash and the analytics are lining up in that regard.


The issue comes in where certain MINORITY of the players are being misused and that's where the criticism starts to fall on Blash. Right now there's a few players being misused and those include Glendening, Zetterberg and Drew Miller. 


So the next time someone comes about with wacky arguments that "Oh look at the analytics people trying to act like they know better". Stop seeing s*** in black and white, that's not what people are trying to say. They are just pointing out some of the weakest links in the lineup that need  to be changed in order to make the team go from being an 8 seed to something better. 


"Your team is only as strong as your weakest player" 


No the math freaks know everything, that's why they GM there own teams in NHL 16.

....FAR APART.... :hysterical: sure glad we wasted money on a useless Helm that could've gone to signing our goaltender if the future...but that's ok Holland, he got Helm for $4M for 5 yrs and you can just go with Howard. God Damn this Helm signing is going to destroy the future of this team!

Jurco, Pulkkinen, Mantha, AA, Mrazek all should be signed and on this team, but nope we got Helm. Maybe he should insure those stone hands that are worth so much, including the future of this team!

If Mrazek gets f***ed on this contract, he will be jaded and leave this team as soon as he can. Holland isf****** this fanbase and future once again with his loyalty to f***tards!

"Hey Petr, your our future, you are probably the most important part of our future, here's $2.75M. We'd offer you more, but you understand, kids don't get $5M, plus We gave Helm $4M because he is a fast 4th line checker with no scoring ability. You understand, right? Oh, btw, we still have Howard of this is an issue."


Isn't that the point of arbitration though? Mrazek thinks he's worth x amount, Holland thinks x amount then they meet somewhere in the middle.


If my boss asked me what I'm worth, I would start high as well my boss would obviously start on the lower end. Just how business works, there won't be hard feelings because of it.

If the roster stays as is we basically replace Datsyuk and Richards with Nielsen and Vanek. Vanek I think is the wild card. If he has a 20-30 goal season we may be a little better but I'm thinking it's gonna be worse. Datsyuk did so many things that don't show up on the score sheet.


Except we will have Neilsen for 82 games, where as Datsyuk only played 66 games and yes that makes a difference. To me this roster is about the same if not a little better with that being a factor.

Getting a penalty for somebody dropping their stick on a 'slash' is the most infuriating thing in hockey right now


No, diving for me is the worst.
