Alex Biega would come in handy right about now.


I was told by at least one poster that John Cafferty was ready for prime time
Alex would've been the guy but he wanted a crack at full time so Benning respectfully moved him somewhere he had that shot.

Brogan spent what...10 some odd games in van last year and looked far more polished playing NHL defense than whatever the fuck it is that JC is doing.

Lets hope hes coming up to eat popcorn while fatburger subs in for Tanev as hes at least somewhere close to NHL calibre
No.... he just wasn’t crazy about going back to Utica. And he probably shouldn’t have been waived.

Cafferty played two games last season


Agreed Chatfield is terrible

I would imagine Fatburger feasts, Chestefield sits.

Originally looked like Baertschi and Eriksson would play and Gaudette will sit. It is NOT confirmed.
FYI; I just saw that if and when Gaudette plays 12 more NHL games, his waiver exemption is over. Pisser.

In re to Chatfield, he has all zeros on his stats sheet for the 11 games in the AHL, save the plus/minus where he is a +2 and 12 shots taken
which looks to be the most from a D-man.
Green; takes a while to load. Don't know when he did this. It is TSN; https://www.tsn.ca/defenceman-jalen-cha ... -1.1394774

Chris Tanev well enough to work on ice this morning with D coach Nolan Baumgartner. But doesn’t look like playing tonight.
9:45 AM · Nov 8, 2019
Adam Gaudette also doing extra work on morning off for #Canucks, so looks like Sven Baertschi going into the lineup tonight vs Jets. Coach Travis Green talks to media at 430 pm Winnipeg time.

Gaudette and Eriksson both played poorly last night.

But only one underperformed expectations.

One guy has 4 points in 7 games and is +3. The other guy has 0 points in 7 games and is -3. The gig is up. It isn’t like Louie is being used heavily on the PK either. One guy is a young energetic and improving player. The other guy is declining rapidly, is old and lethargic.

I know which guy I’d rather watch.

Exactly - I don't even notice Loui until after a play has gone to die on his stick, or I see a half hearted move around the net...

Just be thankful you're not the guy writing those cheques. We've all done some dumb shit over the years, but I don't know any of causes the regrets of signing the air thief.

Luka, comments?

How many points does Horvat have 5 on 5? Where can I find this stat?

So to shake things up and jumpstart Horvats line i might move Boeser onto his wing for 5v5 then look into a bit more grit for Pettersson and Millers wing. MacEwan has excellent skating for a bigger guy plus has a decent set of hands...i would give it a few games to see if theres any chemistry there.

I see Horvat stuck with average wingers in Pearson, Leivo and Virtanen whereas Boeser stepping down to the 2nd line might help distribute the opposition focus a bit better.

Pettersson and Miller should have a grittier type of winger to dig out pucks and knock bodies around i think. A little too much dipsy danglin and a bull causing a bit of chaos might be worth a look

I have a hard time breaking up a line that is one of the best lines in hockey right now.
