It's also been 4 games. It will take some time for 5 new forwards to build chemistry with a new team and system, and with each other.

the problem is not the new forwards... except maybe Clowe he looks like a bag of crap.. the new forwards and elias are the only ones who have produced anything in the first 4 games.

I'd take you up on that bet. Neither guy is proven away from their old linemates who are no longer with the team. I almost guarantee one will come back to their old level of production (not sure which), but both is a tough bet to take. I absolutely hope they both kill it though because I happen to be a big fan of each one.

 

Only place they can go is up!

Hydraulic Fracturing. It's a method of procuring Natural Gas from shale. It has been known to contaminate drinking water to the point of being able to light the stream out of your faucet on fire.

 

Just wanted to know before I put my name in on that bet. Don't want any asbestos either, sir. :P

Ahh.  I was actually talking about Henrique and Zajac.  I don't think they can get any worse.

Or they could stay where they are. That is a possibility here, albeit an unfortunate one.

I know Zajac is a target because of his contract but I still really like him. He may never put up the point totals of a true "#1 center" but he does a lot of things right to help his line in the offensive zone. Plus, you know you can count on him defensively and to log minutes.

 

Small sample size alert but so far this year Zajac's had the least favorable zone starts for any forward and has played more at EV, PP, or SH than any forward. As triumph noted, once Henrique gets going, everyone's standard numbers will look a lot better.

Try watching him objectively. You'll see him cross checking guys in front, giving extra shots in the corners and taking passing lanes. Those are all little things that he's supposed to be doing. He may not be worth 4 million a year but he brings a physicality to the back end that no one else is bringing.

He's doing it now. The problem is, he and Sal are both slow. When they're healthy, they're just fast enough to keep up, and they do the little things right. When they're hurting (which they will be, because their games require them to take a beating), they end up a step slower, and get burned badly. Hopefully, DeBo is smart enough to manage their ice time and maximize their production, but if he doesn't, Volch becomes a traffic cone out there.

No because if they stay right where they are, they won't be on the team for very long.

I love Travis.  The guy has been great defensively as he usually is.  So he at least still has that.  Henrique was great on the pk last night as well.

We didn't buyout Volch and he's literally part cone (on his mother's side I think). What makes you think we'd EVER buy either of those two out anytime soon?

Zajac and Henrique are/will be core players for a long time. There's no fracking way they go anywhere.

 

Now that that's out of my system. Someone said something about Gionta getting too much ice time. No one skates harder than GIonta, he makes so many hustle plays every time he is on the ice. I want to see more Jo. I think he has the talent of a top 6 forward honestly. I thought this was going to be his year to start getting some regular ice time, and they havent dressed him once. Scratch Clowe, he's been awful.

You guys have been ripping on Volchenkov in the GDT, but you don't pay attention to the really useless players: the Zs: Zubrus, Zajac, and, to a lesser extent, Zidlicky. Zidlicky gave up the puck for no good reason twice in the first 10 minutes tonight, but at least he goes and attacks and does something. The other two fellas, with big contracts, skate about every night and do NOTHING. Nothing.

Scream for their head instead.


Agreed. This team is filled with B squaders and some of them are over payed.
Is what it is.
