In Topic: The Leaders HAVE to step up

Lastly, I love Kronner. He hasn't been terrible but I really expected that down the stretch he would be a rock...and he's been more of a pebble. He's a proud guy and I think the last 2 games he has been a bit better but I would love to see 55 be the veteran #1 guy that he can be.

 

My frustration with Kronner is very limited, but growing non-the-less.  I think his play this year has been average, but confident he'll bounce back.  My biggest frustration is that he doesn't Kronwall anyone unless it's the playoffs.  I get that players save an "extra gear" for the playoffs, but I think he needs to start kicking that gear in before we MISS the playoffs.  Start now Kronner!! 


In Topic: Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Ok, I'm reading all of this trade bashing.  Can someone tell me exactly what Jarnkrok has done on the NHL level that makes this so outraging?  He's 3rd on the Griffs in points.  Yes, he shows some promise...it get it.  I get the "young talent", "ton of potential" thing...but has anyone looked at our current roster??  We are extremely heavy on really young guys.  Our brass has said (and done well with for the most part) the theory on experienced players and their being counted on to perform in the playoffs.  We knew if we wanted to get any player today, we would have to give up a piece of our young talent.  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.

They're probably going to help Sammy out and scout some of his future opponents in the Mexican Ice Hockey League.  Hey...what are friends for!


In Topic: 1/9 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Sharks 4

I'm keeping the faith (as always), but last night I started to get this unusual, strange feeling that this season will not end well.

 

Besides Tatar's goal...we coulnd't get within 20 feet of the net.  They were very successfully pushing us out to the perimeter.  The 40 foot cross ice passes aren't going to win you games.  They owned everything below and inside the circles.

If we are planning on making the playoffs, it would behove us to keep Danny with our young roster of forwards and injury track record year-to-date.
