Most likely given the opponent, Cory will start again tomorrow.

 

If he doesn't sit for at least one of the 3 games next week (Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton) I will lose it.

im not sure why this coach has zero faith in giving kinkaid a start it seems.. why did they call him up here is they're not going to use him..they're going to burn schneider out.

It is hard for me to understand why brunner is the scratch for Tootoo. Can someone explain?

 

Brunner has been playing terribly.  If you wanted to bring Tootoo into the lineup, you would scratch Brunner because he is easily playing the worst of any of the forwards.

Disagree. Brunner has been decent the past few games given the limited ice time he has received.

Since having 6 shots on goal against Dallas, Brunner has played about 15 minutes a game and generated 12 shots in the last 9 games.  He's not good.  He skates well and doesn't fall over, that's about all he's got going for him right now.

He doesn't get much ice time so its hard to get production, I didn't think his play was so bad that Tootoo will give us improvement. I have not been impressed with Tootoo all season.

In their last couple of game Tootoo had had better production than Brunner. :lol:

Yeah c'mon guys, in no way is Tootoo even close to an improvement on Brunner. The only thing I'll count on him for is some bonehead penalty in the offensive zone with 4 minutes left in the 3rd with us up 1-0.

Do you see the word 'because' in that post?  No.  Now I can say 'Brunner isn't producing enough shots, and in addition to that, my eyes are telling me that he sucks'.  Because that's what I believe.  My eyes say he sucks, and the numbers are there, backing that notion up.

I agree with this. Let's be honest for a second, we keep saying Brunner is this player with all these skills, but if those don't translate into legitimate scoring opportunities...what's the point? It's like having a flashy car sitting in your garage without an engine. Tootoo may be a downgrade skill wise but at least he gives you the ability to create some grit plays. And I'm not under the notion that we need grit, but if you want to change the dynamic for a game this makes the most sense.

Also, maybe this is a message to Brunner that "yeah, your legs look great, but how about a little finish"

Did you read his first post on Brunner? No stars at all, just said he's playing crappy.

What did you saying the same thing on the topic of numbers add to the thread? It's just adding clutter, imo. We get how you feel.
