Samuelsson's days as a playoff producer are over. They ended three seasons ago. Cleary can hardly skate anymore, let alone grind. They're both of extremely limited use.
 
 
I'd like to see Weiss begin to perform. A trade is out of the question at the moment; even if Weiss didn't have a no-trade clause, he'd still have horrendous trade value.


Cleary will bring it in the playoffs like he always does. He went from being pretty much useless last regular season to being one of our most effective forwards in the playoffs. Playing less minutes will help with his diminishing skill level but the heart and drive is always there. Like a Dallas Drake.

Sammy is a very good 4th liner with lots of playoff experience. Expensive yes but he's not blocking a better player from playing. He has a snarl, big body and can bury his opportunities.

I feel bad for Weiss but with Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Helm and even Andersson looking better than him he has no place on this team. Datsyuk and zetterberg should be split. Getting him off the books and freeing up that salary and the burden of having him for 4 more years will do wonders in the offseason. If we can get a rental D man while doing that even better.

Cleary with an assist....that warrants a two year extension now.


Move him to the top line and scratch Nyquist at the least


#2459094 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

This is Holland's fault. You can leave someone in the AHL all you want to develop but the game is different in the NHL and you have to expect he will need some time to find his game at this level regardless of his age. 


Jesus lol Tatar isn't some blue chip prospect that was a guaranteed good NHLer. The fact that he can come up as a rookie and be part of a great 3rd line and contribute is all you can ask of him and not something he would have been able to do without his time in GR. Same goes for Nyquist. He stepped in and looks like a mature NHLer. Had they not stayed in GR for so long there would be a lot more growing pains. I think Holland and everyone's philosophy works great with developing late picks and getting the most out of them

Amazed how far abdelkader has come. He took a huge step last year and looks even better this year.

Kid that played 40GP turns the puck over and makes bad plays sometimes ?


Yes I understand I shouldn't say he sucks but he does have a lot to learn. People on this board think he should be in the top 6

We get it, you hate him. You don't need to make comments every game about him.
 
He is the very least of our worries this season and it's his first full year in the NHL. He has only played 25 games in the NHL prior to this year.


I don't hate him. He was good his first few games but since then he has been coughing up the puck and making bad plays aaand he scores

#2458567 Defense or Offense

Having D that can move the puck out of their own zone will help Defense and offense

Sportsnet is the worst. Hopefully they can step their game up and employ some knowledgeable people. Watching Sportsnet Vancouver and listening to John Garrett is torture

I've never seen a player get his shot blocked more than Kindl. He had to stop the puck wait for the defender to get into position then shoot into the player 8 feet in front of him

I wish Babs would put Franzen with Dats and Z
