    Stajan has been good lately though for his role at least. Hathaway should come out for Shore he's been really bad lately.

    Yeah not sure why Hathaway has a job. He contributes nothing.

    I agree with that. I want Hathaway gone.

    Bennett has matched his point total from last year in 12 less games. After his 15-game pointless streak to start the season, he has produced almost at a 0.5 PPG clip (26 pts in 54 games).

    Goal: Rittich had his bad games but in general he is doing a decent job. Gillies is garbage really.
    Defense: occasional brain farts but solid. As good as can be expected.
    Offense: Unless Gaudreau, Monahan and Backlund get hot, we are screwed with the important games coming up.

    Good to see another game where they get points against teams that they should.

    I wasn't able to really watch it but the part I did tune into was a crazy back forth was the game like that all the time?

    No the game was actually super boring pretty much until the Stajan goal, then it got hairy

    I'm a little concerned that the Flames played a close to perfect game and still only managed to get two past Condon. Something is lacking and I still can't tell if it's the system or the talent, probably both.

    Either way, the Flames control their fate right now. Win the games they're supposed to and they'll be in the race.

    I good news from the last couple of games is we've seen depth scoring, albeit against weaker teams, but it's still a huge positive. That Lazar pass last night was a beauty. It really seems like he's coming around, these are his best games in a flames uniform. Hopefully he can keep progressing. Same with Bennett...If those two can find another gear, we are certainly a much better team going forward.

    Hathaway needs to see the pressbox

    Gaudreau-Monohan-Ferland
    Tkachuk-Backlund-Frolik
    Bennett-Janko-Lazar
    Stajan-Shore-Brouwer

    I really want to see what Shore can bring to the lineup.

    I’ve said this lots, get Hathaway in the PB and put Lazar with Janks and Bennett. If anything, the rewards of getting Lazar going would be more than we know we are getting with Hathaway. Lazar is coming around and he should be rewarded. All the coach needs to say “we are going to give you a shot, you need to bring more, so let’s see what you got”.

    100% agree. Lazar has more upside than Hathaway and I think it’s easy to see that. NHL coaches should easily see it to.

    Hathaway is always good for a game or two after a callup. But the longer he's in the worse he gets

    Guys, has anyone been able to figure out what Erik Karlsson was doing on that Stajan goal last night? I watched the highlights and I'm very confused.

    I’m quite certain he was thinking about how much he owes for his Uber ride to the game.

    As a Sens fan. I feel for Karlsson. He's still one of the best players in the league, but I no longer consider him top 5 in the world. He's lost a step for sure due to injury. Which is too bad, he used to be unreal to see live. Hopefully he can bounce back next season, but who knows at this point.

    I prefer Lazar on the Stajan line, they play a more defensive role and Lazar's speed creates rushes we won't get from the 3rd line who Gulutzan contains to the offensive zone.

    Hathaway could be upgraded though.

    In his post game interview Stajan said Johnny was calling for the puck back from Lazar, so Karlsson and the other guy went towards Gaudreau leaving Stajan open.

    I'm not a Sens fan, but I definitely like Karlsson's game and I feel bad for the guy. He deserves better.

    Well I’d play Lazar with Janks and Benny and put Shore in for Lazar on the 4th. Hathaway can just sit for a while. I just want to see if we can get more out of Lazar, we won’t with the minutes he’s getting.

    I think his game is fine, honestly. I just think he doesn’t want to play in Ottawa. In the outdoor game he looked fine and in the Allstar game he looked like a stud. The mistakes he’s making are mental and once he gets moved, I expect to see a reinvigorated Karlsson.

    I think playing so much and so hard on that injured foot in the playoff run may have affected how well it ended up healing. I did that when I fractured my foot, got on it heavily for a while, and I screwed it, it will never be the same again.

    I think the loss of his wingman in Methot has hurt him more than anything TBH

    I don't think Hathaway is pressbox fodder. I do believe he is done developing as a player and would serve us better as a fourth line player. Ideally he'd be there with Stajan and Lazar and Shore would be on the third line.

    I think he has a bit more to go, but not a huge amount. He's still at least average defensively and at moving the puck up-ice, just has very little offense in his game as of right now. If he can wrap his head around an offensive system like he seems to have done with Gulutzan's positions systems, he could be a a very good bottom six player in a few years, something like what Bennett has been this season. I fully believe he has the brain to score more, just not the skill.
