In Topic: Rank our griffins d prospects

Why don't they just get rid of paetsch and/or evans and make room for the kids? It be nice to have some vets with the griffins but there not in the wings future plans

And while there at it get rid of hogan or someone else and make room for frk , how does it help frk to play 2 yrs in the echl , he should be with the other kids

You cannot get rid of all veterans. Someone has to teach the kids how it works.

I thought this was one of the best games we played. In a playoffs series if we play like that against the leafs they cannot compete with us and I truly believe we are a much better team than they are. The shootout sucks and jimmy sucks at the shootout but our forwards also suck at scoring on breakaways. They are trying too hard gotta keep it simple like pav did last night.

The way the wings played reminded me of 2007-2009 teams we had. When we lost, a lot of the time we actually outplayed the other team and deserved the win. I love this years team and am not worried at all.

yes, the team seemed so intent to shoot high glove side that they forgot there is a lot more net to aim at elsewhere. They even went backhand rather than forehand to get it up there.

Howard's shootout mediocrity aside, I really would be thrilled to have the shootout out of the game, or at least give the 4 on 4 followed by 3 on 3 followed by shootout option a try. It's just such an irritating way to lose hard fought games, and the thrill of the wins is generally pretty cheap. 

3 on 3, really?? I dont get this obsession to decide every single regulation game. I said many many years ago before the introduction of shootouts that it was a terrible idea. They had already tried it in Sweden and abandoned it. 5 on 5, 4 on 4 and now 3 on 3? Why not make it 1 on 1 because that is where we are headed. Or, here is an idea, maybe we could just leave it a tie? Maybe teams wouldnt sit back and just wait to secure a loser point for half a period...

Actually funny to look at now. before the season started was there one person that wouldn't have traded him for anyone but Cleary?

I think Weiss still had plenty of supporters around here.
