I think that first line would mesh pretty well and on the 2nd line Nyquist could a) bring the creatitvity that Andersson and Abby lack and b) profit from playing weaker opposition than he does on the first line. I wouldn't break up the kid line because right now, even taking into account their mistakes, they are the bright spot and an overall plus.
Comparing players from different eras gets you as far as comparing Jordan to LeBron. It just doesn't work. IMO, Jordan > LeBron. I grew up watching Lidstrom so I'm partial to him. Was a very impactful night watching one of my favorite players get his jersey raised.
IMO it goes even further. Not only shouldn't we compare players from different ages, it's also very hard to compare different positions. Plus, the number of titles you win depends on the teams around you and the strength of the league at that time. Therefore I don't see any reasonable way to compare players from different ages/positions.
Please no. That would suck so much. Would also make the Legwand trade make even more sense if that's the word that Holland got from the doctors just before the deadline.
No, it would make less sense. If doctors say all of them are not coming back this season, then you don't sell youth. Seems like the streak is more important to management than our long term development & chances. With them not coming back we would only be a first round exit with no chance to upset anyone. At this point, I'm calling Jarnkrok up and give him minutes. Plus, I try to dump someone expandable for a pick or a younger player.
Kenny's actions don't make no sense at all. The only defense for him might be that he's just an employee for Mr.I and if that man decides "playoffs now > future", then he has to follow those orders...
Starting to look that way. I know this will be viewed as blasphemous by some around here... but if we need to, I'd say throw Helm into the package that lands us a top-defenseman in the offseason.
Kindl+Helm+prospect and/or pick to Buffalo for Ehrhoff.
The sad point is...it would not even take that much to get him, if we just had a good GM...should've fired Holland and promoted Neil...instead, we're stuck with Kenny and Jim is going to improve the Stars..
