    If we lose this game, it is 1000% Compher's fault.

    Confirmed JTC is in for LOC? Stupid move by Bednar if so, that 3rd line has been a million times better without him and LOC has been a million times better than him.

    Bednar’s needs a last ditch attempt to market JT before the deadline. If we don’t win, it says a lot about him if you ask me.

    That being said...I like this to be the game where we pull ahead of MIN and never look back.

    That's what the "Projected lineup" on the NHL app says. Dunno where they get that info, but it would be dumb, especially after the individual game LOC played, setting a new career high in SOGs.

    Bednar isn't going to change the line-up after such a dominating win.

    I hope

    I don't know if Compher is in the lineup or not, but people seem to be forgetting that LOC took a hard, awkward fall into the boards last game and labored to get to the bench. He appeared to be in a lot of pain and discomfort, although he continued to to play.

    I also think the board has gone a bit overboard with the animosity directed toward Compher. He has had a poor 20 game stretch to open this season, but he has been an effective player for the Avs for the past few seasons, hitting 30 plus points in each of the last two seasons and at least a .5 ppg average in the playoffs for the last two years. He has also provided solid PK play as well during those seasons.

    I don't think you can really afford to quit on players that quickly, particularly 25 year-olds. If the right trade comes along to swap in another player, great, but he can still be a contributor on this team otherwise IMO. Bednar needs to work on helping him build his confidence.

    Quick look at capfriendly is showing LOC is down to the taxi squad so looks like JTC is drawing in.

    I tend to agree, there is value to be salvaged here. The big problem is mostly his cap hit.

    If JTC does not understand that there is someone ready to take his job and does not bust his tail the next time he his in the lineup, then we may have a problem.

    They do that on non game days to accrue cap space since he doesn’t require waivers.

    Foot on the throat. Award a shot every time we touch the puck, make Russo and the rest of their weirdo fanbase drown in their own tears.

    Thanks for putting in the time in the GDT. I totally forgot this was an early start.

    Cale will put a few points on the board tonight and remind everybody why he was in the Norris talk before he went down.

    LOC could be a paper transaction, again. I wouldn’t count on JTC coming in until we know for sure.

    Oh right, of course. At least I didn't tune in at 11 then.
