Discuss the topic, not the title of it.

#2228672 Eaves = Doghouse?

Posted by CopenhagenWing on 22 November 2011 - 06:21 AM

Obviously, there's the rotation to consider but apart from that I'd put my money on a nagging injury. A healthy Eaves has more to offer to the team than Drew Miller.

#2215258 Veterans Players Choosing to Wear visors/ Younger Players Going Withou

AFAIK Franzen only wore one after his face got messed up in the Phoenix series.

Wearing one makes sense to me. You only have one set of eyes and a long life to live after your career is over. Ditch the lid if you're going to fight, though.

#2183289 Aaron Rome

I'm surprised he got four games. The hit was late and you could argue that it was an unnecessary hit to make but at least 50 per cent of all hits are.

That said, Horton has got to protect himself better.

#2170714 WCSF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Sharks 3

EUZ, I understand you love Hudler, but sometimes you've got to call a spade a spade.

At 2.9 per, Hudler has been a disappointment this season. Yes, he had a nice stretch of games but a lot of other players experienced similar hot streaks, even HoS.

The reason why Hudler sits before every other player you've mentioned is because the coaching staff feels they are able to contribute in a way Hudler isn't, specifically on the defensive side. I know you're going to claim that Hudler is an above average defensive forward, but the Wings coach and most other will disagree.

I'm assuming the author is Canadian. How about he spends his time bitching about the plethora of Canadians that cannot muster enough strength to go play for their country at the World's after their NHL season is over.

At least, those games have meaning.

#2090650 Lidstrom 3rd star of the month in the NHL

Lidstrom to this day is under-appreciated simply because....

..he's not Canadian.

#2071872 ESPN: J-Ho no sophmore slump

Such a common opinion around here, get a reality check around the league, carey price got a much worse team still he has a lot better numbers than howard

I realize everybody is clamouring for a sub 2.00 GAA and a .935 SV percentage but numbers like that are becoming rare over the course of a full season. Ultimately, all that matters are wins and as of right now Howard's wins per games started is 77.84 percent while Price sits at 60.90 percent.

Talk up Carey Price all you want, I'm content with Howard so far.

Obviously, you do not expect your own teammates to put shots on your net but Nabokov was asleep in that situation.

#1921470 San Jose blown out

They're just trying to get their losing out of the way early.

SJ still haven't found the mix that'll bring them a cup IMO.
