    Wrong. You cut your losses, even if you have to retain salary, to a team in need of a backup. Holding on to a losing asset is even worse, whether hockey or any other asset.

    Cam is a proven starter. Darling is a proven backup. Not rocket science. Go with that until proven otherwise. The problem has not been fixed, yet. Glad to see Rask pick up his game. He seems to be building it back up. On scoring, my theory is that BP changes it up way too much. The minute it doesn't go, he flips it. Let them work through it and stop the shuffling. He's trigger happy.
  3. Great news. The Canes loved Star Wars night at PNC. Two fights and a win.

    Joe's crazy, not us.

    Maybe he'll take Faulk (heh-heh...)

    Was trying to stay positive and thinking, Meh - a split with 2 points between Sharks and Kings. Try to make it up on the back end of the trip to cancel that Canucks loss. I know, hope is not a strategy. Just maybe...

    Actually, the skaters performed well, even down 2-0. Plenty of chances, a few posts, and Quick was good. Solid effort against a team with a 7 game win streak (now 8). Good character to tie it into OT. However, there was an elephant in the room.

    Wait, there's more! That huge gap know as a 5 hole, and his apparent inability to catch a puck. All 3 goals were atrocious last night. IMO he's Lack v2.0. We also know Cam is not the answer. At this point it doesn't matter who's in the crease. It is the same glaring problem from last year. Believe me, I wish it were different. He can be fixed, but there's plenty of work to be done. I suggest they start with him closing his legs and using that large body. I'm pretty sure none of us anticipated the number of goals going UNDER him that have occurred.

    Pin a $20 on Darling and leave him at LAX.

    What? You have a drink tray, too?

    You're not very PC (compliment). He likes/loves a different GM, or 1C not from Thunder Bay, or new 1C in exchange. See, he has a point.
  12. Brind'Amour should replace Peters

    Welcome to the boards kllregg6. Heck of a splash. You're not related to Roddy, are you?

    Give? Really? Everyone else on this forum doesn't expect that. Yes, it'll cost. I think Landeskog would fit just fine. Avs have plenty of need.

    I'll tell you who is not a 2C. Derek Ryan. When I saw the lines vs Sharks and he was between TT and Aho I had one of those throat vomit moments. He wasn't that bad, but come on. Can we really take the team seriously as Playoff caliber with that? Top, I agree with the need to be filled and your call for it. We just disagree on Jordan as the price. I'd rather use any other asset not named Staal, Slavin, Aho or Skinner. They can have anything else in the Organization including coaches, Canes, Checkers, draft picks, pucks, sticks, and part ownership.

    ...but isn't this year's 5v5 one of the better in league (or maybe that was shot generation). Not adding up (or I'm recalling incorrectly).
