  1. Lots of problems getting the puck into the O zone. Mostly chuck-and-chase but with very little forechecking.
  2. Yes, keep this line together by all means. I'd like to see Svech play with Aho and Turbo. Both Nino and Aho are searching for their games. Keeping them together on the same line seems counterproductive.
  3. Maybe it's time to switch Svech and Nino. Might take both Svech and Turbo to elevate Aho's game, cause it sure needs elevatin' . . . .. 😬
  4. What a finish. Who woulda believed 3-0???
  5. Looks like we're playing mostly with 5 D.
  6. Maybe move Svech to the line with Aho and TT. Might generate more offense. Svech is wasted with Jordan and McGinn.
  7. When is Aho going to show up this season?
  8. It's really early in the season . . . but what a difference a new owner makes.
  9. Yes, I agree that the Dzingle-Haula-Necas line has a huge upside. I think it's a big waste of Svech's talent, however, to play on the line with Staal and McGinn. Staal and especially McGinn do not have the offensive skills to complement Svech. Svech is going to be a an elite talent—maybe even better than Aho and Eric Staal in his prime. He should be playing with better line mates this year. Personally, I'd like to see him paired with Aho-TT or with Dzingle-Haula.
  10. Great job Coastal!!! SO ready for the season to begin.
  11. I'd add passing and physicality, but I could see where the former would go under chemistry.
  12. I remember the very first time I saw Fleury was at the prospects camp the year he was drafted. He supposedly was a big deal, being drafted so high, but I was unimpressed after seeing him on the ice. Why? Everything about him said "I'm so good that I don't have to work hard." He lacked drive and intensity. He just wasn't hungry.
  13. Just what I was thinking. We've got a logjam behind our top-4: van Riemsdyk, Edmondson, Fleury, Bean, Priskie, Forsling. Like Faulk, Edmondson is in the last year of his 3.1 million contract.
  14. Edmundson is 6-4 and 215. Supposed to be very physical player. Slots in for us on third line.
  15. The other team would have to catch them first 😀
  16. Just musing, but if Necas makes it over Gauthier or others, then maybe the lines look like this? Turbo-Aho-Svech Dzingel-Haula-Necas Foegele-Staal-Nino Marty/Wallmark/McG Each of these lines has a younger guy with two more veteran players, Necas' speed fits well with Dz and Haula, and F-S-N seemed to work well together last year. Just a thought. Not sure what the pairings might be if it's Gauthier rather than Necas.
  17. Yep. The meme on Dundon that he is "cheap" is now officially DEAD.
  18. Lake and I had a nice pm conversation about all this. He's such a great guy that he's offered to buy me two season tickets just for listening 😂 Seriously, he is a great guy! Now, back to hockey . . . .
  19. Yes, but "any degree of proselytizing" could mean that Slavin can't even offer a friendly invite to go church with him and his family. It's unfair to expect that of him. If Lake was saying that Slavin "has gone there a bit as regards religion" (your words, not mine), that's why I disagreed. My point was that since there is absolutely no evidence that Slavin has acted in an untoward fashion toward his teammates regarding his faith—and no indication whatsoever that he would do so if he were selected as captain—why even bring it up? It read like a subtle swipe against Slavin's faith. I wholeheartedly agree with you both—how Slavin conducts himself with his teammates is fair game for this board and we should let this particular issue die out. 😊
  20. I'm not sure what you mean by "any degree of proselytizing," but always get a little concerned when someone wants a religious person to keep quiet about his religion. Slavin is genuine about his faith and it's both unrealistic and unfair to expect him to never to talk about it with his teammates. Since he has been on the team for awhile and seems well respected by his teammates, I suspect that this is a non-issue with them, having been worked out long ago. Why would you think all that might change if he is made captain?
