I still can't believe the huge disappearance of Nyquist. With what he did last year down the stretch was just amazing, would have loved 25% of that production.
nyquist is too small. he's the guy i would trade and he has plenty of value, especially in a more elaborate package.
i'd do a huge splash with the leafs. phaneuf/jvr for nyquist, smith, weiss and a pick. i'm giving the pick because while jvr and nyquist score about the same currently, jvr is big and can hit the dirty spots. by them taking weiss we'll take all of phaneuf's cap hit.
sort of reminds me of the shanahan deal. that leaves us searching for a second line centre still. sheahan isn't offensive enough yet to take on that role. i'd have him as the 3rd line centre instead. if sheahan is the 2nd line centre then this...
It's incredible that the Wings can deflect the puck into our net but not the opposition..how can they be so accurate in hitting the opposition goal post? Someone posted asking whether we want Babcock back. The answer is no. Many will disagree but there are many changes that need to be made. With 85% certainty, the Wings will miss the playoffs. Ottawa is on fire. Their schedule is easy. Toronto only has a 5% chance of winning tonight which puts Ottawa a point back. Only the complete demise of Pittsburg would allow the Wings to get in.
schedule easy? pitt at home, on the road with nyr and philly? not that easy. boston has 3 on the road too. we have by far the easiest out of the 4 teams battling for the 3 spots.
We've been saying this about the "next" game for the past 2 weeks lol
ya really....i'm sick of saying or thinking this. we played well against boston but couldn't lock it down. regardless of the reason. i have no idea what to expect any more. they'll probably beat minny, wash, mtl, lose both to carolina.
