    It's hard, but something we need to pause and remind ourselves that his guys are so inexperienced and far from finished products.

    Well it sounds like Necas too might be injured.

    Prob off topic here but I completely agree.

    At the end of the day, you feel like the Zbad and Bread lines will have the puck and be able to put some points up... if that 3rd line can as well it changes things tremendously against any other team.

    Our D is what it is, work in progress wise. Love to see that 3rd line do damage (at least w puck possession)

    Based on contracts for comparable players. Trouba is being paid like a stud #1 D and he isn't that player.
    All the power to the guy for getting paid, but the idea that he is worth that contract is absurd. At least what he has shown to this point.
    Let's be clear, he is a great addition to the team. Every team would like to have a player like him, but, that number dwindles down dramatically when you consider his contract.

    Fairly sure Necas is in the lineup.
    Dougie is out, but close to returning.

    Jets fan here. Trouba coughing it up and getting walked by Aho to go down 3-1 was sickening display and one us Jet fans have seen regularly.
    Not here trolling here just stating what I’ve witnessed before.

    Yep, he made a bad play in an otherwise great performance. Thanks for checking in.

    Not saying much really, but best dman in the series for the Rangers, and I don't think it was really close TBH.

    This contract won’t age well. Next in a long line of D we’ll all want off the roster.
    Girardi, Staal, Shattenkirk, Skjei, Smith...

    Trouba was an issue all year long. I hope a new D coach and system will help him out.

    it’s weird to see this bumped when Trouba was probably one of our only good D this series

    Yeah my take as well. I thought trouba was our top defenseman by a mile this series.

    You are probably right, and I thought Trouba was okay this series, but this seems more like an indictment of how bad Fox and DeAngelo were. Disappointing.

    Trouba had a good series. Couple of blunders, but the Canes are a legit good team.

    His play started improving as soon as Skjei was moved. Would be nice to find a partner for him. Hard to believe he’s just 26.

    maybe it's getting bumped because it's so clear that we can now trade DeAngelo at the height of his trade value... ADA will never be a top 4 RHD defenseman on this team, might as well upgrade the offensive corps

    DeAngelo is a huge offensive weapon. Him, Fox and Trouba on the right side can work. Just build your left side accordingly. I can see a scenario where it makes sense to move DeAngelo, but I don't want to lose sight of the fact that he's a great defenseman because he had a very tough series fighting through an injury.

    I’m a Trouba detractor. Not a fan of anchoring the defense with this type of player, especially considering his contract.

    He was good in games 2 and 3 though. I’ll give credit where it’s due.

    Still not liking what we traded and that contract moving forward though.

    You know when you take a 15 minute shift in open hockey and make a stupid play because you should have gotten off the ice 10 minutes ago?

    That's what Trouba looked like on the Aho goal.

    Strong moments and looked like a horse and a few blunders. He really needs a dependable D partner, which ironically I feel like McD would have been perfect to cover up his worts. That would let Trouba be physical.

    Trouba was our best defender. He played solid and he was leaned on heavily considering how bad everyone else was. He also may be the only guy capable of wearing a C on this roster. Gets too much flack from fans who need an easy scape goat.

    Slightly overpaid for what we get but better than you average d man. That said Brady outplayed him this series which is kind sad.
