Just win baby!
There's no reason we shouldn't put up 5 against that D. ...So, of course, we lose 6-1. MJ with a shortie.
Vanek with the hatty.
Abdelkader with the GWG.
Funny how we are paying another ex Ranger over 5 to play on the 4th. Sick.
TBF Miller isn't on the 4th because he hasn't been playing well - it's to roll four lines that can score.
If we were demoting someone for their play, it would be Stamkos on the fourth line.
Stamkos should be on the fourth line.
That 2nd line won't last, Point on wing is stupid and Stamkos will be a black hole linemates again until he re-pairs with Kucherov, just how he works.
This is going to be such a boring GDT without TVMFR.
We absolutely cannot give the Wings their first win of the season.
Why not? I think it would be kind of us.
Also damn - we still have our 11 game regular season win streak against these guys.
oh man Vanek loves us at least two tonight from him
I think Stamkos and Gourde are just filling in on faceoffs for Point, and once the play starts, Stamkos plays the right side.
Kucherov's going to have to heat up in order to get Stamkos going. So re-pairing those two probably depends on whether or not Kuch heats up before or after TKO is split. If it's before, TKO could be a thing most of the year. But I don't know if Kuch will ever get as white hot as he was to start last season, when both he and Stamkos were putting up monster numbers.
He's obviously gonna be the guy to break our PK streak.
Keep Stamkos the hell away from Kucherov. Kucherov will figure it out. He always goes through funks like this and then goes white hot. For once Stamkos needs to figure things out for himself
Wish they would have sat Sergachev for this one. Give him a few days to think about his game and give Koekkoek a shot at some PT.
Cally in, Erne out.
Ahh CBS sports, gotta love em.
I can't believe how far ahead of schedule he is. Normally it's the other way around.
Well not really, he had surgery in late May and was supposed to miss approximately 5 months.
It's 2 weeks shy of 5 months..
Erne has been playing well. Especially with Paquette. Would have much rather had Cally get 100% before bumping Erne out of the lineup. You know that Cally isn't 100% and is just coming back early and going to get hurt again in 10 games.
I know some people are saying that this is a trap game and that Det has to win eventually. I on the other hand think this is the perfect game for Kuch and Stamkos to break out with a big performance. I want to see det start the season with 7 losses and be in tears.
Why don't we just run Gourde - Point - Miller? Have Miller play with two duracell rabbits and have Stammer down with the bottom feeders.
