    For years and years and years, even the start of this year. As if his salary was ever stopping us from doing anything with cap room.

    I thought Zacha had a great game tonight. His pass to Maroon for his goal was great. He was carrying the play forward, skating with some real speed and used his body well to shield of defenders. There was one rush in particular in the 1st I think that made me think how much potential he has. He skated hard past the defender on the left side, used his body to shield him off and then broke free alone on kind of a 2 on 1 before taking a decent shot.

    It was the go-to "statement" to justify getting rid of him.

    Thank god no one here is a GM but Shero is.

    Reminds me of another player currently getting the business about his contract...

    So is Bratt going to get increased ice time?

    The whole line was tremendous. If they can keep that going, Hall, Nico, and Palmieri keep doing their thing, and the Zajac line shuts down the opposition’s top line, we can put up a tough fight.

    Which one, Cory or Greene? :laugh:

    I mean with Greene his role's the problem right now more than his contract but they don't have anyone better. Get someone better to fill his role. Even Shero can only get one Vatanen at a time. With Cory that's...it's just scary how much he's fallen off. You usually only see this kind of drop out of nowhere in baseball with pitchers.

    I don’t expect him to see any time in the playoffs. Maybe he’ll come in for Gibbons if he stinks.

    Zacha played like a bull in a China shop tonight. The signs are good for him heading into the playoffs

    That'd be awesome. That's 3 pretty darn good lines in my opinion. And even a 4th line of say Grabner-Boyle-Gibbons is good.

    In regards to Tampa or Boston, I can see the argument both ways. Looking at one thing...

    I think Tampa is a more favourable matchup for our top line. They make their mark in transition and I don't see a Tampa line that can match up against them like the Bergeron line can.

    Just something to chew on

    Schneider isn't good anymore, but Lack is a complete joke.

    Goalie is also the most important position in the game. You can hide a guy like Zajac (he's done great in a 3rd line C role, by the way) or Greene (we haven't done it this year, but hopefully next year), but with a bad goalie contract you have to make him the backup or not play him at all.

    I thought he had a good game. It's a number crunch right now though and I have to think they side with the veterans, at least to start. Especially if MoJo comes back, hard to see them going with Bratt. I mean if we get down in a series and they're looking to change the tides a bit then I could see them going with Bratt for sure.

    Devils avoid the Caps in the first round. I would rather see them play the Lightning over Boston. Boston over the Caps..ehhh. Nothing is easy in the playoffs. Go Devils

    If there's anything this game was good for it was knowing for sure that Kinkaid is our guy these playoffs no matter what. Rough 2018 for Cory to say the least, he's been terrible.
