I have been waiting way too long for this night!  Wish I could be at the game but not able to get out of work in time to make the trip north.  LGRW.  


As for drinks tonight, I am a simple man and will settle for Yuengling Light.  If I get carried away maybe cannonball Fireball whiskey on Red Wing goals, don't think I have any left though.

I've got fireball in the freezer that's been waiting for this day!

This is Babcock coolaid. 5 goals, -3. 17th on the pk last year. What is he doing specifically that makes you want to see him over a faster, younger, bigger, more offensively and defensively gifted player? Jurco, Athamasiou, Nosek, and Larkin are all better than Miller. I love Miller's gamer quality, but the fact is we have better options now that we didnt a few seasons ago.

I don't want to see any of those guys playing 4th line, grinder/pk roles. It's not their game. If we were talking more along the lines of Callahan taking Miller's spot I'd sort of understand, though I'd still prefer Miller himself. I don't agree with a lot of the things Babcock did (say, using people where they don't belong), I just think Miller is a great fourth liner/PKer. 


edit: and Athanasiou, Nosek, and Larkin are all centers. Miller isn't taking a spot from them.

Jurco for Miller, Marchenko for Kindl. That would be better.

I feel like Miller is really underrated around here. He has a specific role and he does it exceptionally well. Great PKer. Jurco doesn't fill the need Miller does and vice versa.

I like the look of those lines, though I'd rather Larkin center and Z on the wing. Obviously I wish Jurco was in there somewhere but I'm not sure where to put him.

I was kind of hoping he'd be sent down and have a great season in GR, but maybe that's just me being overly cautious about his development, as I'm extremely excited for this kid. But if he's truly NHL ready and makes the team better, then awesome. Going to be exciting regardless.
