So Matthias still not getting the PP love, Horvat & Higgins ahead of him. Ok, then.

Cole Cassels 3 goals 1 assist 1st star today

Sits 15th overall in scoring in the O. McCann sits 14th. Cassels has missed 12 games due to suspensions and missed games for WJC tryouts. The kid is a beaut

You can thank Gillis.

As much as you hated Booth, the 3rd that also came over from Florida in that deal was used on this beaut of a kid.

So what's up with Jensen being a healthy scratch last game in Utica? I think he gets dangled for a trade in the off season. Maybe Calgary will take him for their second?

I"m not running behind anyone. All I'm saying is that the Sedins contracts are amongst the worst in the league, and definitely amongst the worst amongst Canadian teams.
Saying it doesn't make it true.

You people can live in denial all you want. These guys are 50 point players now, and while you can sit there and hope for a "bounce back" season, it isn't going to happen. Any expectation should be tempered. For these guys, a bounce back season sees them at around 60 points. Expecting them to be PPG players again just isn't realistic, yet that's what we're paying for.


So when they come back with a 60+ point season (which I don't doubt they will), you going to come back and eat some crow? Or move the goal posts again? They were near PPG players after the lockout. I know that past history does not guarantee future success.

However, last season was an aberration due to a combination of injuries and horrible coaching decisions. Are they going to be 100+ point players again? Probably not. But going back to the style of play that suits them as opposed to what Torts had the twins doing will certainly help. Having a regular line mate will also help.
Was thinking about this thread the other day. So I guess I'll just leave this here...

Dunno, and weird. First he gets called up to sit in the press box when the team is out East, then this. Something is fishy. It could be that he isn't lighting it up in the AHL, and may not be NHL material.

Even if Jensen is not a top-six forward, he still has the size to be an effective bottom-six. Is Travis Green using the same tactic as WD to Kassian?

I was always under the impression that even if Jensen doesn't work out as a top six scorer (which is looking more and more likely was the months go by), he has the build, speed and skill set to be an effective utility guy.

In this new Dead Puck era they are 10 points off the leading scorer too (contracts that are much higher) :shock:

Funny - I was looking at this last night and they've slid right into the top 20 and (like you say) to be only 10 points out? Great job.

Maybe next year, pauser.... :roll:
