  1. I blame this on the white jerseys. We were on fire until we wore this garbage at home.
  2. The passing has been atrocious over the last 4 games. The team isn’t in sync.
  3. Edmundson was on the puck side. Necas pinched down to Edmundson’s side. It wasn’t Pesce there on the right. Not sure which forward it was but I think it was Dzingel.
  4. From what i have seen of Kase so far, just makes me dislike Faulk even more
  5. Supposedly, Karpat (Puljujärvi’s team) has signed another player to a contract which pushes them over the allowable limit. It could be anticipation of a player leaving.
  6. I would assume TVR gets low usage tonight. To get him acclimated to the game and access his shoulder. We may see this lineup for a couple of games or they could make assessment after this one to make a move during our 6 day layoff. Also gives us another PK based defender. Use Gardiner and Hamilton on the PP (which we should get plenty of time tonight) and have 5 defenders ready for the PK.
  7. We need more than a right shot. We need a right shot that is decent in taking faceoffs. The choosing the dot rule is good and bad for us because we are left shot heavy. missing Williams in more ways than one.
  8. Ho Sang’s current AVV 874,125. Puljujarvi’s last cap hit was 925k from his original ELC. He had the opportunity to earn another 2.75 million in performance bonuses but never did.
  9. My original statement was geared around Pulj and Ho Sang. They fit inside that cap hit. I don’t see how we are interested in Benn. Dallas would have retain 20% or so. Then we would have to move Nino and TVR. Throw in a pick or so. Benn is slightly better than Nino but I don’t see the benefit. Unless he returns to 2 years ago, his 9.5 mil cap hit would be a huge anchor in 2 seasons.
  10. One thing we do know, if TD and Co see a weakness they don’t want to wait to resolve it.
  11. In my stat surge given earlier, I found that Anaheim has one of the best 5v5 ratios in the league. They are pretty stingy there. Also they are number 2 in penalties so we’ll have some options for on their PP. their PK is running at 84.6%.
  12. We have 1.92 million in cap space. We must not have faith in any of the checkers sticking here. trade: pick, defender, prospects
  13. 6-2 and we dont have Aho or Nino contributing at decent levels and Svech isnt contributing 5v5. That is pretty good sign for the teams capability once we get those three going. 8 games is only 8 games but I hope to see some changes soon. Nino is a negative player right now. He is back to taking the lazy penalties that put him on the trading block and not adding any scoring to counterbalance. I would like to see him demoted to a line away from Aho. Aho will get it going but taking Nino off his line should help. Svech is a bottom 200 forward in 5v5 scoring rate right now. He is a top 50 scorer during the PP. He has to clean up his game from all the penalties but, we cant handicap him on the Staal and McGinn line. The Staal line has 2 goals in 70 minutes of 5v5 time and 1 GA. Crazy to consider but, their CF goes up almost 10 percentage points when Brock McGinn isnt on the line (only 10 minutes to time). Has the most High danger chances by number 17. Have given up a ton of High Danger chances, 14. The top line, Haula's line, isnt much higher on Corsi For in 5v5 than Staal's line. They have produced two more goals and also allowed two more. The lowest High danger chances for of the group at 12 but have a 2 to 1 for and against ratio. The Aho line is the darling of statistics. They have the highest Corsi For by far and have a high High Danger chances ration (2 to 1). I hope that we see Svech move up and Nino down. If I am truly getting my way, add Gauthier back and send Gibbons down. Have to put Gauthier on a line that he can do more. The 4th line has the lowest Corsi for on the squad. Svech-Aho-Turbo Dzingle-Haula-Necas Nino-Staal-Gauthier Foegele-Wallmark-McGinn. We are tied for 5th in 5v5 Goals scored but tied for 12th for 5v5 goals allowed. A more even comparison is we are 9th in 5v5 Goals for percentage (which evens out the issues between the difference in games played). Our special teams need help. We have scored 5 PP goals (not shorties allowed) and allowed 8 PK goals (scored one). Our special teams are -2. Source: Natural Stat Trick
  14. Roddie protecting Haula from lightning striking twice or Sharks’ coach protecting Marleau?
  15. I am hoping that we are atleast 6-2-1 coming off the Ducks game. After that the schedule sets up really nice for us. 6 day break then we’ll play Columbus Chicago x 2 Philly x 2 Rangers x 2 Ottawa x 2 Red wings x 2 Flames Devils Panthers Sabres Wild Over 5 weeks. We have a really great shot at putting up a ton of points in that sequence. Over 16 games, the only ones we come in with a low to no advantage are the Sabres and Flames. By the time we get to the Sabres there will be enough scouting materials to have a good game plan. then its get rough in late November/ December. Really the rest of the season will be rough with a couple of 2-3 easier opponent stretches.
  16. Necas didn’t stay with his player on that goal. Kane beat him to the loose puck.
  17. Foegele didn’t work on speed in the offseason
  18. And I turned the Pens game on just long enough to watch them score a terrible squeaker SH. Pens win too
