I just have to say, you do a fantastic job with the GDT every time. Well done sir.
Dat Victor Hedman Faceoff %...
Put him and Kucherov to center already.
Just win baby!
Hah, when did he take a FO? Must be in OT, no?
Hard to argue then team has been playing like a well oiled machine most of the time.
But to be successful on this road trip and beyond they need to step it up to the next level and play like a well oiled group of sentient machines with only one goal in mind.
The PP in OT. Point got thrown from the circle.
Girardi has as many points as Callahan with a pure defensive role
I won't be able to watch tonights game but I hope to wake up to a good result tomorrow.
Sharks win 4-1.
Dude - he's snake bit.
6M for an ENG specialist. What a steal for that role. Being an empty net goal scorer is rare these days and to have TWO, including Stralman, on the team is amazing. I remember when Callahan was first traded here and he tried to look good and fancy by scoring on teams with a goalie in the crease. He used to do that a lot and it would irritate me. But not now, no, he finally has accepted his role, embraced it, and is making the smart play by shooting at the glass when there's a goalie in the net.
His empty better was one of humility, showing why he was a captain in his previous goal scoring-on goalies-role by just skating towards the net and gently passing it in. No Stefan dekes (He did not embrace the ENG Specialist role), or Craig Smith shooting over the net plays, he simply scored his ENG like a gentleman. THAT is worth 6 million. That's why Ryan Callahan is on the team, to provide leadership as the ENG Specialist. Every team needs one.
I'll have to watch the end of the next two games on the go. An hour too late of a start.
Huge test with this road trip for this team. Can't afford to come out flat.
He's not snake bit, he needs PP time and a playmaker. If he had those he'd be near the team lead in points.
Better than Kucherov and Stamkos really. Absolutely phenomenal that guy is, big league player. Fantastic player, real go getter. Hes a guy you build a team around.
I think that is being a bit unrealistic. Teams dont pull their goalies enough for him to lead the team in points. We cant expect a 6M dollar player to perform like a 5M Kucherov or 8M Stamkos.
I think this road trip is going to tell us a lot about this team and perhaps confirm that this team is as good as we all think.
Burns hat trick incoming.
Watch with all these Cally Comments he goes out and scores a hat-trick.
That would quite down the negativity directed at him.
Would like 4 points on the next 3 games on the Cally Shuffle!!
