Don't have to.
Probably trade for Michalek again.
Oh man don't bring up his name. Too sad. Poor guy.
All this panic made me go and look into our prospects for some reason. And now I feel better. Some great kids coming up the pipeline. Chlapik is on fire and Chabot and White are as close to sure things as you could probably want in a regular draft pick. I feel a little bit better.
Dahlen is putting up some great numbers as well. And Logan Brown is fighting injuries this year, but I still feel he has the potential to become the best player out of any of our prospects.
Time to go back to panicking?
I'm not even panicking anymore.
After going through denial, anger and bargaining today I'm at depression stage at this point soon to accept the fact that this team is not going anywhere with this clueless GM and owner for that matter.
Chabot, White, Brown, Jaros, Englund, Chlapik, Hogberg, Gagne... I mean, it's not amazing, and things thin out after the top 10 or so guys, but we'll be alright. It's not like the cupboards are barren.
Hoff - Turris - Stone
Dzingel - Brassard - Ryan
Smith - Pageau - Pyatt
Stalberg - Kelly - Burrows
Decent Depth Line up, need a legit top 6 player added to actually be considered good.
We have 16 forwards now with everyone healthy. I'm guessing something has to give tomorrow at the TD? Lazar to be dumped for a pick?
I think after the TDL we have unlimited spots. I'm guessing guy like Kelly and Neil won't see ice for the rest of the year, and just stick around for support in the dressing room. But yes, Lazar for a pick might also make sense.
to start it seems burrows is brought in to be a top 6 guy. if so, then he could be a good fit with brassard.
I would swap Burrows and Ryan, but that is a thick team to play against. Speed and hands on all 4 lines. Grit, sandpaper. If we can stay in the playoff race, this might be quite the team.
While Burr can play both wings, his natural position is LW.
Smith - Brassard - Stone
Hoffman - Turris - Burrows
Dzingle - Pageau - Ryan
Stalberg - Wingels - Pyatt
Methot - Karlsson
Phaneuf - Ceci
Boro - Wideman
Looks a lot better than to start the year!
The five stages, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost.
Same with Stalberg
Maybe you just need to take a step back, and enjoy watching the team play instead of worrying about asset management. Dorion gets paid to worry about that stuff, you don't. He's a professional, you're not. We're close to the division lead, we have a gritty playoff-style team philosophy. Relax and enjoy the run and the upcoming playoffs.
They made moves that have made the team better.
huh? We'd be playing Boston if the post season started today
Oops... yer right. I misunderstood how it worked.
I thought 2nd played the other 2nd.
Pretty sure we are in a divisional match-up spot. Only the wild cards can cross over to play out of division in the 1st round (and the top seeds of each division who play those wild card spots). Pens will play columbus at the moment.
Thats how I would run the lines, now I dont expect Boucher to do that as he clearly doesnt trust Lazar. So realistically just swith Kelly and Lazar.
I dont want to see Wingles ever play another shift again, even if there are injuries id rather see Varone. Wingles has been terrible. Id even take Neil over him because atleast we know he will drop the mits and when he finishes his checks he will make the guy pay.
