hmmm ok well I'll stick with TG, IMO he doesn't inject opinion into his stories nearly as much as chere or this guy. It's nice to get a different perspective but I think a lot of it is guys trying to make news where there isn't any.

 

Miller is good. He's certainly better than Chere.

I like Miller a lot. He gets some background and more personal stories than the other two guys do, nice different dimension.

You have one guy who is all facts, one who like you said does more background/personal stories, and one guy who tries to get readers by writing controversial headlines.

fair enough obviously I've only read one of his stories and never heard if him prior. I just don't like when an writer is trying to lead readers to a conclusion (some terrible papers are sold this way cough nypost cough) but I guess him and chere are more opinion than TG, so my problem really is that they don't necessarily label themselves that way.

Which is exactly why I never bought for a nanosecond that Lou cared about the AHL deadline. We do inane crap like this all the time when we could have just sent him down a week ago.

Good, I'm glad Gelinas went down. He needs some all around growth.. And he won't get that playing 3 minutes a night.

I don't want to see him become the next MA Bergeron

Merrill is still eligible to play in the AHL during the Olympics, and he was the most critical guy because he hasn't played a full pro season and he got hurt this year.  Gelinas has played full pro seasons (and played junior) and has played for most of this year, it's not really that essential that he play.

He can only play a couple of games, it's silly.

Good, now when we come back from the break they can move larrson up with Merrill, and see how those two work as a pairing

No teams would win any board battles against them and the breakout would be filthy good. It would be a waste of their skills though.

@TGfireandice: Devils have not called anyone up so far, so it appears D Peter Harrold will be activated from IR if Volchenkov can't play Monday.


Greaaaaat...

I kinda wish I was surprised by this. At least I would've been hopeful.

The Avs are going to shred us with their speed and skill at forward, Shneider playing us is a necessity to even keep it slightly competitive.

Marty should get Friday vs. Edmonton and Schneider gets Saturday in D.C... Anything less would leave a bad taste in Marty's mouth (and the locker room, I feel).

You know what would leave a worse taste in everyone's mouths? Marty going out there and giving up 3 softies to Edmonton, Scrivens goes beast mode on us (because why wouldn't he?), and we lose 3-2 to sh!tty Edmonton. So yeah... Cory.
