Well that was a bit weird.
I know. Was mkre talking about who to protect/who to expose. I would be cautious about him being a capable starter next year if we do expose Talbot and he’s taken
The goals end up being meaningless in a blowout game where the teams loosened up.
Funny that we scored so easily once the Sharks pulled after waiting so late.
They are just the 3rd team to clinch. This division is lopsided.
Ah. I guess I extrapolated "no business being a starter" to more years than you intended.
We’re incredible at hockey
I could’ve been more specific. It’s my fault
We, (me, Kaprizov, Fiala, Dumba, Brodin, Rossi, Lizard, Talbot)
It was weird that they waited so long to pull the goalie. Only thing I could figure out was known empty net sniper Brodin was out there so they tried to wait it out.
Boldy just punched a wall.
Very curious to see where we end up in the standings and who we’re playing. Both us and the Avs still play VGK twice.
-I don't mind that Spurgeon was moved out by the bigger Kane, but then he didn't re-engage, allowing Kane inside position alone in front. Lazy stuff...I think he was playing the score at that point.
- For some bizarre reason Cole and Soucy decided to spoon on the right side of the net where no opponents were, leaving a wide open lane on the left. Shark had a shot from prime scoring position, and didn't miss.
Too bad we don't have more of a defensive, grinding option at 7D. I think it's about time one of the top 6 Dmen had a sit down. Hunt is such a defensive disaster that he isn't a good option.
Anyone else think Suter looked faster than usual tonight?
I remember one foot race he had where the other guy didn't gain on him and Suter's feet didn't look as heavy as usual. Maybe the other guy was just slow.
That’s another brain fart by me. Throw nuts in there too. Maybe Foligno because he’s underpaid
Fear the Brodin
Ive always felt Suter had deceptive speed. Not a quick burst, but is faster than he appears
When he wants to be.
The Wild just won their 7th game in a row. They have allowed 14 goals over those 7 games. The f*** you talking about sitting down a defenseman?
Hockey is easy
Stop this winning streak. Were gonna need it in 3 weeks.
No, teams tend to carry on how they're playing at the end of the regular season into the post season. Carrying a winning streak into it would be a good thing.
Correct. I also don't get any sort of vibe this is the peak. Seems like the consistency is just starting to finally come together now that the team is getting everyone back.
100% agreed. barring injury, etc.
