Nothing but prayers and thoughts to the Gordie and the entire Howe family.  Whatever the outcome.


In Topic: TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

You think that us having too many third pair quality D-man is going to make us too good and result in us finishing too high??

To consider tanking an option... yes, absolutely.

 

That are doing so well thus-far, plus the fact that we have so many high quality D prospects chomping at the bit to get to the show... yeah, the results mean that we are going to finish too high in the standings to get a high draft pick.

 

On top of that, if we trade away any of those three, plus another player, or prospect for even a slight upgrade in D... yeah, that's going to definitely going to result in a better record.  Which I'm all for.  Upgrade.  Play to win.  Forget tanking.

I mean, even goose is short for gustav.

Yeah?  How's that?  You don't save yourself a single key-stroke in it's "shortened" form. 

 

One of two reasons why I use nicknames. If I spelled out everyone's name, my posts would get that much more lengthy. So it saves time.

The other reason is that I'd hate to engage the wrath of the spelling police.

 

I can barely spell Ericsson right.

I can never remember if it's two Cs or two Ss or a k. 

Don't even get me started on Abracadbrakator.

Regarding last nights game:  Looked pretty flat for most of the game.  Glad to see that they overcame some horrible officiating and that Babs switched up that top line to get both Z and Dats going.  Z didn't have his best game and honestly, I thought Dats looked invisible for most of it too.  There's no denying that Abby has been great on that top line.  If you're thinking otherwise, you're wrong. Two goals that Echolalia pointed out were not a result of shots being banked off of him by Dats.

 

Moving Nyquist down to the second may get a spark going for them. Ideally having a top line of Z-D-A  second line of Nyquist - Weiss - Mule, and third line centered by Sheahan or Helm would be spectacular.  I don't see a Sheahan or Helm centered second line being all that formidable.

 

And let's all be real boys and girls; Jurco, Tatar, and Nestrasil still have a lot to prove in this league.  While so far they're off to a slow start in the 2014-15 campaign, you really shouldn't be all that surprised.  They're young, unproven, and two of the three are really just seeing their first shot at making the dance. 

So let's let them play while we wait for Mule's return and Weiss' eventual coming out party.

(being highly optimistic on that second one, but I'm not going to give up just yet.)
