    I left them out because I actually DO think we have the talent to win against them. Their defense and goaltending are very suspect.

    Or LOFT.

    Dubinsky's contract has been a disaster the last 2 years of the deal. Two more years to run after this.

    I'd imagine ownership is getting tired of buyouts. That said, Dubinsky is almost a no brainer buyout. Nash should be as well.

    You mentioned the 3C, and the two 4C's. What's positive news, and you'll have to forgive me for spoiling your negativity, is that Boone Jenner is actually starting to rack up some primary assists and is looking like a real centerman. He's put a lot of work in to rounding out his game and it's paid off.

    O goals and 3 assists in his last 10 games.

    Yes, he had a nice assist (forget to whom) vs. the NYR. Boone is a very hard worker but of limited talent. He's a 35 points 3rd liner.

    He was a much better player a few years ago. Dubi almost certainly will be bought out.

    Seems Barry Trotz has no problem man handling the Maple Leafs . Has to be the best coach in the Nhl right now

    Or perhaps the wins were flukes and they really aren't that good? Just asking.

    As you know I’ve been down on Dubi so much that last year mid-season I promised I’d suspend further perceived negative - though objective - comments until year end. I’ve posted a few time several kudos on particular plays this year, but remain unwavering in the knowledge he’s a marginal 4th liner making 2nd line money (e.g. a bad contract). That we are so weak at center that we have to use him as a designated draw-man points to our weakness at center.

    Amazingly I find Nash even less inspiring. Go back to his signing and I posted then that it was hard to get excited about his addition. Little did I realize that thought would be a high point in my thoughts on his game.

    I give Jenner props for stepping up at center as I appreciate his grit and contributions, but would feel much better if we had a scoring 2C. And yes, I’m using “scoring” to include goals.

    ***cannot like as I have deemed a bad boy***

    Nash has turned out to be an embarrassing signing. I don't think he's a 40 points scorer in the AHL. A complete waste of $2.75 million of cap.

    Hopefully close to the amount of unlucky goals on Korpisalo this season.
