#2505450 Around The League - Eastern Conference Playoff Race

Posted by e_prime on 03 April 2014 - 08:06 AM

April 4 - Buffalo

April 5 - @Montreal

April 8 - @Buffalo

April 9 - @Pittsburgh

April 11 - Carolina

April 13 - @St. Louis

 

Those two home games are MUST WINS.

I actually like the fact that 3 of those 4 road games are going to be hard fought.

A real test for the playoffs.

Keep the foot on the gas, boys.

Howard won us this game. Needs to be said.

 

This.   ...and some clutch scoring from some youngsters. 

 

I have to ask... was Quincey on the ice for the last few minutes?   'cuz I think he might have been.

It was my birthday two Saturdays ago... I was thinking hard about what I should get myself.   I think a NYQUIST jersey is in order.  S-T-A-T.

Looks like he was trying to hand the trainer his teeth.  

 

 

Well, the guy's a beast.  He'll bounce back.

With that win right there... I'll go ahead and say:  We control our destiny.

TOR won but ''lumbus lost in OT.  Washington lost.  Even if the Devils win in OT they still don't have enough points to catch us or the BJs.

 

So they all stay behind us in the standings.

 

We need another win tomorrow, and then we need the Bruins to rebound from their loss against us with a win against Toronto on Thursday.




#2504155 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by e_prime on 31 March 2014 - 01:03 PM

 

I think you could trade him.  I just don't think the return would be great, but who cares right?

Indeed.  The only way you're going to get great return for him is if he is packaged for a greater return.  In which case, people will complain about overpaying... but whatever.  You trade him to a place that has difficulty signing players.  Like EDM or NYI ...or to a rebuilding team that needs a reasonable cap-hit.  Like CGY or BUF.  

 

 

...and there's no way we're moving Weiss in the off-season.  His value is at an all-time low and his potential if he makes a rebound when healthy is way too high.




#2503516 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by e_prime on 30 March 2014 - 02:27 PM

Maybe Jarnkrok can score a GWG tonight and "help out his old team" by keeping the Caps on the outside looking in.

 

btw: So over this trade.

Frightening.

Ray Petkau @RayPetkau 12h

As is customary in Toronto, when your team plays poor defensively game after game you blame your goalie.

 




#2494087 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by e_prime on 10 March 2014 - 03:40 PM

I'm not ready to give up on Smith just yet, but Kindl can get packed off to a team that has trouble signing players and/or is in re-build mode and can trade us a better defenseman - ASAP.




#2492339 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

Posted by e_prime on 06 March 2014 - 11:28 PM


 

On a side note, I love, love, LOVE that we stood pat with our blue line. We are absolutely going to win the Cup with Kronwall and Ericsson playing like a second pairing and Quincey ruining DeKeyser.

Dude, I am as frustrated as you are with the fact that we were unable to get anything done on D move yesterday, but realistically... no real D moves were made yesterday.  None.  Nada.  Zip. Zlich.  Zero.




#2492331 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

You know how Babs' coaching strategy is aimed at keeping the games close and winning low scoring games?  Wouldn't it carry more wanter if we didn't lose every single low scoring game?  Every single one.  If that strategy worked for this team, as Babs' if fond of telling everyone, then why doesn't it work for this team? 

 

I don't know how he can be coaching this strategy with our D-corps we currently have... his strategy should be to keep the puck out of zone as much as possible, no matter the score... and to score as many goals as possible, no matter how injury plagued our current compliment of forwards happen to be.  Also, telling Jimmy to freeze the puck and pull in as many rebounds as possible would be great too.

 

You know, hockey basics.
