  1. Not so quick on Necas. It also says that players with 40/70 NHL/AHL games played requirement will not be considered until the beginning of the 2019-20 season. Necas is already beyond that in pro games and will not be exempt.
  2. If Zinger is ready we would have to change the emergency recall to a standard recall for Geekie. I don't think there are any other implications other than someone needs to be a healthy scratch. Hope it's not Geekie right off because our 4th line is finally clicking with him in the lineup and that Brindy keeps using him in other situations as well.
  3. Makes sense. Last night was the sharpest and quickest I have seen of him in quite a while. If he can keep it up, it's time to ride him as many games as he wants to start. Hope to see more of Geekie. He is contributing without being a liability and definitely deserves to get more looks.
  4. Keeps making me think of Skjei's comments, that our D-men are expected to be way more offensively involved than he has been used to. That would explain a lot when gaffs become more frequent and noticeable and certain sides and pairings getting exploited by opponents. I think that during the games Petr and Reims were out everyone, including Gardiner, started getting into a more rounded game which in turn seems to have made them more confident and played to their strengths. I hope he keeps it up. As to Skjei's boneheaded plays, the guy is playing on his off side which few players are comfortable with and have a positive impact at the same time. I think he deserves some breaks from us.
  5. Maybe it's the wakeup call we need. Guys have been really sloppy getting pucks out of the zone.
  6. Geekie is outscoring Aho, Turbo and Svetch combined.
  8. I just hope we don't revert back to a more offensive mind set and worry less about defense just because Petr is back in net.
  9. Wings just showed highlights of the Tampa game... Canes better take these guys serious.
  10. Screw Gordie. I'd rather see him get another goal or assist.
  11. Could have easily gone the other way if the Pens had scored instead of hitting the crossbar on the PK. Pens will try to crank it up in the 3rd and open up the ice for counters. Hope we can anticipate some passes and keep up the pressure. Go for the gusto!!
  12. He didn't fake pump a shot for a change and actually let one fly. Who woulda thunk?
