#2568338 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by joesuffP on 04 February 2015 - 05:08 PM

 
Ok?  Why would their free wheelingness be used as an excuse for why Franson scores, but overlooked when it becomes clear that nobody else on their team scores much?  If their freewheeling offense inflates his numbers, why doesn't it inflate anybody else's?
 
I'm not sure why everybody is trying to hard to make the guy out to be worse than he is.  He was a good offensive player with Nashville (a non freewheeling team) and he's a good offensive player with Toronto.  AND, not surprisingly, he's getting better with age. 
 
There are probably some reasons not to like his game, but suggesting he's not good offensively isn't one of them.


Hes just not a guy I want to be tied up to for 6-7 years. I'm sure he'll help us out but there are better options. No point in trading for him at the deadline. If he signed here I would be happy but I'd much rather trade for Yandle whose a model of consistency and gives us a lot of options with his great contract

Haven't lost a game strictly because of goaltending all year so that's a positive

 before the last game I would say that would be great. But Weiss-Sheahan-Glen like looked to have great chemistry. but what I know of babs.. nothing would surprise me.
 
Now I think of it where do you put mule when he comes back......


I just worry about the speed of that line. Weiss and Franzen aren't great forecheckers but the scoring depth should put us over the top... In theory. Having a fast guy on each line that first on the puck has been key for us all year

Ericsson the pylon out there covering the wrong man.

He also had to cover 3 men with everyone getting caught. Soft play by Z

2nd goal was soft. No matter, shouldn't be a game changer unless we allow ourselves to get forechecked into the ground like we typically do against The Panthers

Kindl and 2nd? Do we have the cap space?

Making the playoffs was a good character builder for these young guys and they were integral in getting us there. Also gave them a chance to see what playoff hockey is all about and hopefully are better prepared this year

A little over confident with our 13 shots on goal

Did Z get a touch on it maybe?

Z blows our PP early and they score then he coasts from the blue line and his man scores

Grind this out in their zone

Posted by joesuffP on 14 January 2015 - 09:49 AM

does Chara ever fight with his gloves off. How exactly is this not a cheap shot. Little scuffles like that happen all the time without somebody punching the other in the jaw with their glove on

My favs when he came out to fight Roy


Goalies always seem to have trouble with Nyquist's shot

Sheahan, Lashoff and Glendening all look like the same person
