Stupid voynov- he was one of my sleepers and was off to a good start and then he goes and gets a felony charge.

You would think a smart seller would note in the comments if it includes the voucher- it would justify a slightly higher price.

Any word on merrill? I know it's Lou and it'll be status quo but boy could we use a breakup of the zidlicky-gelinas pairing.

I don't like it but I like what the Zubrus-Gionta-Bernier line has been doing, so it's hard to argue a ton. Obviously if they go with Henrique-Elias-Havlat then Josefson stays in the lineup. Seems that they are also liking Brunner's ability to play PP point - when Merrill gets back, he might sit again.

agreed- josefson has been solid but the PP has been atrocious and a guy like Brunner could help wake it up. One of the things he has going for him is the ability to lead the rush and gain the zone in the PP which we have trouble doing sometimes.

In Topic: What to make of the Schneider soft goal conundrum

17 November 2014 - 08:54 AM

well I'm sure everybody was pissed when Zids missed the empty net against Washington. If they scored to tie it after that people would have been all over him just like they are all over Schneider right now. So skaters are held just as accountable when they deserve blame. Cory deserves blame right now.

this is false when it comes to playing defense unless your name is Bryce Salvador. Again, if you want to pinpoint blame for every goal scored against, then you have to blame gelinas for the Mitchell goal (Mitchell was his responsibility and he left him wide open in front of the net) and Ryder for the duchene goal (Cory makes a great save but Ryder lets his man roam free for the rebound).

Just like Cory, both gelinas and Ryder contributed elsewhere in the game, but they get a pass and Cory gets he blame because he let in a soft one... How about the offense scores more than 2 goals for a change?
