he actually said this yesterday.  i believe in an interview with pierre.


weiss on the 4th line is useless.  the emergence of sheahan has made weiss expendable.  if they thought sheahan would be this far a long this fast they never would have signed weiss.  so sheahan is our problem.   :)

well would you rather have jurco or cleary on that fourth line for the PO because Anderrson sounds expendable for me too

Oh I thought it was just NTC. Thanks for pointing that out. But either way, I wouldn't expect him to anyway.. just think it could do him some good long term.

yea I could see him scratched for cleary in the playoffs

In Topic: Mrazek to start how many games?

I think the team plays more relaxed in front of Mrazek because of how he handles the puck.  He handles it with more confidence than Jimmy.  He is also at times more confident and poised in the net.  It is also true that sometimes Mrazek will really get a bit lost coming out too far and over-challenging.  But, on balance, my opinion is that Jimmy has not played great since coming back from the groin tear (which by the way was caused by one of his horrific mishandles behind the net...resulting in him scrambling awkwardly back to the net).  I think overall we played some of our best hockey when Mrazek was starting...perhaps his puck handling gets the offense rolling from the defensive end.  I would let Jimmy sit and gather himself for an extended period of time...and go with Mrazek.  This team needs a shake up and this would do it.  Let Jimmy back up for awhile.

 

I also would get Marchenko back in there once he is healed and perhaps sit Ericsson for awhile...he makes way too many mistakes and needs a bit of a break.

 

Weiss should sit as well...he is inconsequential on a team that needs difference makers.

 

I think players go thru funks and when they are in a funk, just sit them.  Rest them for awhile.  Don't grind the same guys out there who are having problems.

somestimes that helps but not for extended places because of messing with confidence face it jimmy is our guy and we cant have a goalie who isn't sure of himself running into the playoffs
