#2638543 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Posted by joesuffP on 20 November 2015 - 10:28 PM

I think we should all be able to agree that Jurco deserves more of a shot than he has been given so far this season

Smith is probably a miserable hockey player, can't do anything right

Seems we're missing that fine touch, hopefully the vet can help with a more precise offense and Pulkinnen ehhh idk I feel bad for Dats, no fore check at all on that line.
Blash has given Pulkinnen every chance to succeed that's for sure. Please be showcasing him for a trade....

So eighth seed teams should just give up unless you're the LA kings? Hockey more than any other sport, all 16 teams have a real shot. Eighth seed go deep all the time and every single extra playoff game makes the young guys that much better. If Larkin played with us last year against Tampa he would be a much better player at this point despite us not making it out of the first round. You start missing the playoffs it changes the environment around the team and guys like Dats probably wouldn't have stuck around

I would die if they traded Mrazek over Howard

Winnepeg seems to be in a free fall right now and they'll be heading into cap hell this summer

You shouldn't be expecting this team to be seriously contending for a Stanley Cup at this point. Our next wave of elite talent is being developed, once Larkin and co. are in their prime I will be concerned if we're not one of the very best teams in the league. Until then we still have a shot, like most teams in the league. I think everybody in the organization still strives to be the very best that they can but they're more focused on the future

Are you saying that it was a good play for Kindl to change at that moment?


A line change on 3 on 3 is always dangerous. It's Z's man that burns him and then the pucks squeaks through Mrazek from a bad angle. Just an all around bad shift from everybody. 3 on 3 makes the defending team look silly more often then not

We lost because we couldn't bury our chances and we took too many penalties/reffing was terrible. Washington is a much better team than us and we took 3 of a possible 4 points from them. We outplayed them until the third but we could have easily been up by a couple at that point

Might have to put someone on ignore for the very first time


#2637769 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Posted by joesuffP on 18 November 2015 - 12:41 AM

Could this conditioning stint be some sort of loophole for him to stay in GR without going through waivers?

Did you guys notice who was on the ice in the final seconds of the game? Dats, Z and the one and only Larkin. All this experience is going to make this young kid turn into a man really fast

AA going to the net hard at the end almost brought a tear to my eye. Break neck speed and takes it to the net every opportunity

LGW, where people complain about people not complaining about something

Green has been our most consistent defensemen all year and also had two assists last night. His play on the puck wasn't that bad even, Bobby Ryan made a great move and that's what great players do. He Deked out three red wings remember

I do complain about Dekeseyer, he can't pass the puck at all, still great in his own zone

Smith can't score and that's what his game is tailored to to. Look at Jakub, he's in the lineup because his offensive skills outweigh his defensive lapses. Smith is just a lot of lapses

I swear Howard struggles to play with leads


I think the better we play the worse he plays sometimes. He needs to be busy to be truly great

Nyquist was great

Abby had a downright embarrassing night I think he was getting chirped all night. He blew like 6 grade A chances, still played alright otherwise

Highlight reel goal scored on us probably will be seeing that all year

Shame we couldn't bury more chances and our few mistakes really cost us but two points is great for one of our best games

Is it just me or is Dekeseyer a terrible passer? So many icings on easy plays. I think he's really struggling the the stretch pass, still playing alright otherwise


#2637391 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by joesuffP on 16 November 2015 - 06:49 PM

The cap just needs to rise a lot quickly. With these guys getting paid 10M a year the cap is way too low to be reasonable

I hope guys like Pulkinnen, Kindl and Andersson are being showcased for a trade otherwise these lineups make no sense, but losing purposely makes no sense either. I would really welcome some sort of trade right about now
