    Does that model take into account we can't beat any Metro team and will no doubt play down to the level of Detroit/Buffalo/etc in those games?

    I feel like we could make the playoffs and you’d still be convinced we won’t make the playoffs.

    Vatanen will join the team on the road trip, and so will Petr. Petr is undergoing concussion testing either today or tomorrow, so I assume if he is cleared he may be able to start during this road trip.

    If that is the case, then we may be getting healthy at the precise time we need to.

    I just hope they don't bench TVR. We probably need to bench Edmundson. I don't like playing guys on their offside if we don't have to.

    Well, to be fair, we didn't make the playoffs last year, either.

    I've not seen much from this team that gives me the confidence they'll overcome the challenges they're no doubt going to face in this upcoming month.

    Don't worry, they'll bench Fleury for... reasons.

    I've been saying this schedule panic is nonsense for a few months now. Everyone has a crap schedule in March. Our is actually less crap than most. And it's not like traveling from Long Island to Pittsburgh is going to tax anyone. I think it's about an hour flight. We don't leave the time zone or the country all month, so we're done dealing with time changes and customs. Raleigh-to-Buffalo is as rough as it gets.

    I know, but IMO, it's a good thing there's so many games. Our schedule to this point has been really "gappy." I don't have any evidence to back it up, but it seems that we've had a lot more three- and four-days off than ever before. Sometimes, getting into a groove of playing four games in six nights is good for a team, especially one as mentally fragile as we can be from time to time.

    Beat me to it, and it will be inexplicable as he's vastly outplayed both since the ASG break.

    Please don't mess up my head. I already got enough mad crap happening in my life that's makes me think that I'm really a fictitious character in a bad movie.

    Don't fear Rod has his stapler at the ready.... (In the press box)(Red Swingline model) Fluery will not be escaping... (Edmundson Probably has a staple remover or something)

    Small sample size but since the TDL and Pesce went down. TOI/GP is:

    Slavin: 25:36
    Skjei: 21:25
    Edmondson: 20:00
    Fleury: 17:39
    Gardiner: 14:57
    TVR: 13:43 - surprising considering he is the o lay RHD

    I like how somehow we not only got stuck playing every Sunday, but they're all road games.

    And of course it's March and we have yet to play the Penguins.

    the only team i am absolutely terrified of is the Bruins. I feel like we have at least a puncher’s chance with anyone else. That being said i will be thrilled just to make the playoffs at this point.
