Re: Fix is in! Again!

I believe if I saw the stat correctly that Chicago has had more pp's this series than they did in all of last year's playoffs... I keep telling my son that the penalties usually balance out over the course of a series ... not so much in this one. Unbelievable !! Blatent missed calls ... pretty hard ...

Re: Should management re think the 4th line role

Ice time is another consideration ... Even though the thought of having 4 scoring lines is somewhat appealing there is only so much ice time to go around. Typically the 4th line doesn't get a whole lot and in most cases doesn't even come close to rolling through at the same pace as the other 3 ... s...

Re: The Next 'C' - Vote for your choice.

My original thoughts were Kessler ... great team guy, wears his heart on his sleeve and all that ... my final choice was Henrik Saw a panel on tv the other week with Bob MacKenzie ... panel was unanimous for Henrik ... some of the comments ... - Henrik very involved in the community - $$ - calm, goo...

Re: Starting lineup (?)

Not sure I like Alberts ... tough but slow - lateral mobility poor - dumb penalties ... nice when salo gets back.

Pardon my ignorance as I have been a bit behind on the training camp ... is Hodgson still around or is down to the minors ?

Been a while Cornuck ... how's things ?

Re: So, whats really wrong with the Nucks?

I don't think there is anything wrong with the Nucks ... a slow start thats all ... - some injuries - Sedin, Demitra, Salo etc. Team will come around ... they have solid goaltending a big strong blueline with some guys now that can move the puck - Edler, Ernhoff, Bieksa, Salo. Maybe we don't have a ...

Re: No Sundin this season

Bringing Sundin back as our no.2 center would have taken alot of the pressure off Hodgson *and* given him a bit of a mentor. ...actually it would have taken some of the load off of Daniel as well. Now we're back to Sedin being our only offensive threat up the middle...moving Kesler back to the midd...

Re: Heatly on the block. Interested?

Wouldn't touch Heater. I like his ability to score at any time, but not much else. Never struck me as being a team guy, and asking for a trade in public pretty much confirms that. Interesting Sid ... I got a couple of buddies who are Sens fans ... they say "you can have him" ... he is more hassle t...

Re: Luongo - yes or no?

Lou is a one of kind goaltender ... there are alot of average goaltenders, there are some good goaltenders but there are few exceptional goaltenders ... Goaltenders are ALWAYS a key to winning a Stanley Cup. I think we would be taking a step backwards by developing our youth, bringing in experience ...

Re: Hodgson, Edler, 1st rounder for a top notch CENTER.......???

IMO we are still a ways off from being a player away from winning it all. We have some good parts - goaltending, Burrows and Kesler stepping up, decent defense, a relatively young core that is getting better, but we need to continue to build from within and strengthen that core. We cannot at this po...

Re: Trade deadline

If Demitra is out with a broken finger ... I would bet Gillis will be looking a little harder now to pick up a player or two. I agree he won't be looking at a rental player however I think he may be forced to do something a little more than he would otherwise do. Playoff race is too tight just to si...

Re: Demitra - Broken Finger

Always hurt it seems ... Wonder if Gillis is going to feel more pressure to get someone at the deadline ... Demitra likely won't be back for 4-6 weeks if it is broken ... even then it will not be 100%. Pretty tight playoff race and I think Gillis will want to make sure he does everything he can to m...
