There isn't a goalie in the league who lets in so many bouncy flukey goals as Howard... he has zero control of where the puck is, there's at least one incredibly s***ty bouncy goal against in every game.
I have spent the last 3 days out of town on business. Only had time to check his forum a coupe of times while gone. Made a post or 2. I raced home today hoping that Holland would have rolled the dice and made a hockey move. Now we knw a few things.
1. Holland said: " No rentals". He lied. Legwand is a rental.
2. Holland: "would like to make a hockey move". This is a bad hockey move.
3. Holland gets screwed in every trade he makes the last few years. A 3rd round pick by itself is enough for Legwand.
So....am I outraged that we lost Calle Jarnkrock in a trade today...not really....in fact, I think looking at all of our young talent losing a soft Euro with the proverbial "great hands", who has hinted that he wants to go home to Sweden and play, is actually a decent price to play for a veteran like Legwand.
True, but you have to consider that we most likley won't resign Legwand. Not with Z,Dats and Weiss still on the roster. So its not Jarnkrok for a rental it's Jankrok for a rental for 20 games. So if everything is fine with Jankrok I'd still consider it overpayment.
what a horrible trade.. wtf is Holland thinking here. first weiss now legwand.. brutal! datsuk 3 weeks, helm out and zetterberg.. we make playoffs it will be miracle. how vanek goes for 2nd pick is just shocking holland didnt pull that off. guess snow just gave habs gift there.
Quincey is actually only 3rd on the teams D in giveaways (Smith 39, Kronwall 33, Quincey 32, Kindl 31, Ericsson 30). He's also played more games than any other D-man on our team... suggesting that his giveaway's per-game is lower than most of our other D (I don't wanna compute the numbers, but I believe that math makes sense). More, Quincey is also leading our D in take-aways (Quincey 27, Kronwall 20, Smith 14, Lashoff 13, Ericsson 12, Kindl 12). More, Quincey is also 1st among our D in even strength ice time, 2nd among our D in shorthanded ice time, and only has 23 minutes on the PP... suggesting that his giveaways and takeaway numbers are better per minute than our other d-men.
Is Quincey good? No. But he's not a horrible ball and chain like everyone suggests. We brought him in for a first at the deadline and he wasn't the savior everyone hoped for, and he gets crucified for it. He's just another Eaves. Good? No. Bad? No. Just blahhhhhhhhh
Datsyuk is arguably the best 1st line center when HEALTHY. Trade him too?
I do like Ehrhoff's contract
Smith leads the list cause of the HORRIBLE passes Q gives him. I must throw that out there. I say trade him to the B's cause apparently they were interested in him and bring up Ouellet, whom I think is our most ready D prospect from what I've seen.
