Its hard to jump on the tank bus when you have so many kids trying to make an impression.
That's a great sentence. Hell, I still think of Bo as a kid.
Marky has been like a BIG kid lately. Been a lot of enthusiasm for the most part.
Go for the wins. It's good for everyone.
I don't think the fact the draft takes place in Vancouver should alter the way the team handles itself at all.
Although I do think Bettman will be more uncomfortable here than anywhere he's strutted his persona previously..

Im fine with criticizing managerial decisions leading up to having to play DiPietro. What I rally against is the silly notion that forcing Dipietro into action was somehow a plan. Benning"s gamble was trading Nilsson before he had a goalie in return or trading for a goalie that needed to clear waivers.

Demko and Markstrom went down really close together, chronologically. That cant be predicted but the precarious situation in net was not unknown. Benning was waiting for Philly. If Philly put McKenna on waivers last week all would be well in the world. Benning refused to give Philly a pick. That simple.

So he picks up a 6th but loses a 7th. It was still the right call in trading Nilsson and in promoting Demko. If he had traded a pick 1,2,3 weeks ago for a back up he would have been criticized.

In any event, its this silly notion that it was a plan.
I never said they planned it. I said they failed to plan to avoid it. They picked up a goaltender for a 2020 7th round pick hours after the disaster occurred. To state " there were no other options" is absurd. I would not have criticized sending a 2020 7th rounder 2 weeks ago. I'd call it prudent.

I agree with the Demko strategy. I've never stated otherwise.

The only thing I am guilty of is being annoyed with setting up Mikey to fail due to lack of action by management. That's all. I never criticized Mikey's play. I stated that he lacked experience.

I envision a couple posters in this thread fighting mad because I criticized the organization. To these folks i say, chill out

I think people are critical of the lack of a plan or the lack of adjustment/contingency once his original plan (McKenna) got jammed up. Is this another case of Benning being too fixated on a specific player, rather than an organizational need?

Clearly they didn’t plan to call DiPietro out of junior. But they should have swung something to make it a quick (24-48hour?) stay. Where was Ryan Johnson in all this? I can’t imagine there wasn’t an AHL player for an AHL goalie deal to be had.

So due to an unforeseen set of circumstances, a rookie from Jr gets put in net against a good team.

Boo-fucking-Hoo.

The kid got a jump start on his NHL career. He got to hang with the team and see what's expected of a pro. He got an early look at NHL shooters. He's seen the NHL lifestyle. He got some time with Ian Clark. Oh - and he let in a bunch of goals thanks to the porous D getting overpowered.

Some are acting like DiPietro was murdered live on national TV. I would think with the number of character players that Benning's assembled, the kid was handled pretty well after the game and unless he's a complete nutjob, he will grow from this and become a better player.

I would have rather seen this scenario than watching Bachman.

If it wasn't for the fact Mikey was only 19, he would most likely have been in Utica this year anyway. He's fine.
Here's the article on how it was done and the CBA rule that allows for it. It's from Feb. 5.

I just want to know if the kid made a little scratch.? Hope so.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

He's a goalie, of course he's a complete nutjob.

He essentially got what Demko had to earn and ask for 3 years after he was drafted.....to play an NHL game before he was NHL ready to see where he needs to focus to improve.

Yeah, seriously don’t get the angst. We’ve lost 11 out of the last 12 against the Sharks, but poor Mikey, his career is ruined.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Again I ask a poster on this board what is the “tank bus” or “tank train”?

The team just isn’t very good. I haven’t read any posts for people hoping for losses. M
