    At that point in the game the Sens were down a goal and needed to score more than take a penalty for instigating a fight.

    The next time the Sens and Jets play is when the fight will happen.


    Also, do you really think Trouba would accept a fight with Neil? And do you want Neil on the ice with 9 mins left in a game where you are down a goal and all he is doing is chasing Trouba around the ice rather than trying to help his team win?


    Side note, having an enforcer does not stop hits like this from happening. You think Trouba had even one split second of a thought of, "Oh man, Chris Neil has been on the bench for 56 minutes of this game. Maybe I shouldn't throw this hit because he might get a shift and challenge me to a fight!"

    Next game is when Trouba gets punched in the face.

    Mccormick and Bailey :help: yikes. These two guys do not have nhl skill.

    Akeson with Varone have been on fire especially the pp, probably worth signing him.

    So what is it looking like. I think Wingels is ok if they called up only 2.

    So:

    Smith - Brassard - Wingels
    Dzingel - Turris - Bailey
    Pyatt - JGP - Lazar
    Mac - Kelly - Neil

    I absolutely think they do. This is the top league in the world, they're certainly going to be doing extensive scouting of opponents. If a team feels like they can impose their will and bully a weak opponent then they will play with more of an edge. The Oilers used to be a poster child for a weak opponent that could be bullied into submission. Guys like Cooke or Sean Avery are just nutcases that play with an edge always on, Trouba is a guy who picks his spots. You show that you're going to get punched in the face if you try stuff against this team then you're probably going to have more restraint in your spot picking.

    Watching one of your guys getting drilled with a headshot on the ice I'm sure it's more likely that "I'm going to stick up for my guy and get after Trouba" would be going through guys heads then "I really need to be careful here because we might be down another man".

    From what I understand bailey has been scoring a lot so I guess management is hoping it carries over

    People forget about 2007 and the year we beat the habs in the playoffs. Injury riddled in early of the year and came back with a vengeance.

    We have structure and a bit of a cushion. We will be alright.

    I personally am psyched we may see Gagne and Perron even for a game if they are called up. Can finally see if they suck or just play on sucky teams.

    Gagne, the guy who has spent half the season in the ECHL and has 0 AHL goals. Lol
    Would def like to see Perron for a game or two tho

    I dont really mind Max, but Bailey has looked dreadful to me in each of his call-up games this year. Slow, constantly behind the play, no hands. Hope he can prove me wrong and be decent.

    Yeah why not. Can someone honestly give me a reason that they wouldn't want to see Gagne in an NHL lineup for 1-2 games for 8 min a night when Lazar is our first line RW? Not even curious?

    I didn't say make the man captain.

    ...whoever has the most skill? Whoever in that lineup has a decent set of hands, or good speed, or something that our regulars can work with in the top 9.

    Last time our two best players(Karlsson and Spezza) got hurt the team rallied up and made the playoffs.
    If you think about it, Ryan and one of (hopefully) Hoffman/Stone is not that bad compared to.

    Correction: Andy also got chicken-stabbed the same year, so we are in pretty good shape compared to 2012/13

    The cupboards are kinda bare is my point. Varone would have been another option but 2 out of the top 3 options were called up. They don't do this in a vacuum.
