I really don't want to see Barch on the ice much this season. I thought he looked horrendous last night.

This no touch icing is stupid, pointless, and slows the game down. Get rid of it...what braindead moron would suggest this crap?

Slows it down? It eliminates the waste of time it takes a d-man to skate back and get the puck... If anything it speeds it up, by leaving more time on the clock for offensive play.

What you just stated just proved his point. It does slow down the game as those seconds that are just usually melted away with the icing are now actually played and therefore dragging the game on longer.

I didn't like the hybrid icing. It saved maybe 2 seconds of time at most. And there was one case where the ranger player got to the puck first but it was whistled dead.

I understand what you're saying about me proving his point. But it depends on how you look at it.

It slows down the actual elapsed time of the game... but as far as GAME PLAY, it eliminates the time that is essentially wasted with no actual competitive hockey play, as the defenseman skates back to touch up. I consider a fast paced game one where teams are actually competing against each other with time on the clock, not burning time with a formality like skating back and touching the puck.

At the end of a game with the goalie pulled that can be 5-7 seconds of time per icing.

And lastly Larsson, who to me, just looked bigger out there.  He played 25 minutes, all situations, and looked pretty good - I wish he'd take fewer hits, but his skating looks to have improved.  We'll see what happens when the real games start, but I'm hoping he can put last year behind him.

 

I really agree with your "take fewer hits" ... I was thinking the same thing...apparently he hasn't lost that habit and this is going to be a big problem

It's funny I was thinking the same thing with JJ . Some players just need to learn how to be a bit more sliperly or they will be out of the league fast.

I mean, defensemen get hit.  It's if he can avoid getting run by the Rinaldos of the world - that'll do him a lot of good.

agreed, but it just seems like he's not focused on it enough.. like getting hit when he could have avoided it by being alittle more aware... he still has some growing to do and the season is long

Just posted this on HF in response to a Flyers fan, but I thought I would share it here:

 

 

The 10 game losing streak lasted from March 25-April 15. So here are the results with shots on goal:

Ottawa 3-2 SO: 34-14 NJ

TB 5-4 SO: 25-25

Florida 3-2 OT: 30-26 FLA

NYI 3-1: 25-21 NJ

Bos 1-0: 40-26 NJ

TOR 2-1: 28-18 NJ

BUF 3-2 SO: 39-26 NJ

BOS 5-4: 28-18 NJ

Ottawa 2-0: 33-11 NJ (!)

Toronto 2-0: 32-13 (!)

If you average it out, NJ outshot their opponents 31-20.2 in that span and lost 10 straight. That doesn't happen and you can imagine the frustration that was building losing game after game while dominating crap teams

Also shows how rotten the goaltending was during that timeframe.

Well I guess you are correct on that as well.  It was really bad goaltending and no goal scoring combining to turn that 2nd half of last year into a giant toilet.

I don't disagree with the point...but if Larsson were a different type of d-man and avoided hits a la Rolston/Pronger we'd be calling him soft.
