In Topic: Why are players like this allowed to play in the NHL?

Want these guys out of the league and to stop it? Start fining the GMs and HCs who play them.

Damn it sounds like this would have been worth staying up for. Nice way to go into the break.

I get people are conflicted about the draft pick, but honestly if we keep giving up this many shots a game we'll still be in top 5 contention.

This team is going to lose its share of games still. Especially as we get into the latter months and teams in playoff contention are desperate for points in games that over the last few months they typically coast or play for OT. But it's nice to see some winning every now and then.

In Topic: Is Phil Kessel the answer?

Want no part of Kessel at his cap hit and the cost of assets in a trade aside from all the other stuff that there is with him.


If they're blowing it up, the one guy I'd take a look at is Bozak, but I suspect they want to keep him and move out some of the other parts (Kessel, Kadri, Phaneuf).

Without speed at forward, it's just hard to see how this team scores much or ever.  Every pass has to be precise.  I don't think there was a huge issue with breakouts by the D last night - although they did have trouble getting the puck at all - the forwards just have no chance because they can't force the opposing D to make mistakes.  


How Fraser gets dressed over Gelinas is a mystery that will confound us all.  It probably has to do with Oates's preferences on the power play, but he is the best power play guy we have.  He's terrible at even strength but Fraser is worse.


I'm equally dumbfounded on this.  I think this as much Lou as Oates.  I don't see Stevens supporting this move, so it's probably a 2-1 scenario.


Lou has some fascination with having Fraser in the lineup, much like having guys willing to fight and jump-start the team's energy level.  It's an old-school hockey fascination.

We'd probably have Kinkaid/Marty going 50/50 and Lou ends up taking Samuel Morin

They were going to take Max Domi, no ifs ands or buts about it.
