Player Discussion - Phillip Danault II: 2nd C? edition
The NHL's top-5 lines after first quarter of season - Sportsnet.ca
No not 2nd C edition. He’s a 3c.
Crazy that the Danault line is one of the best in the NHL at the moment
What......wait, must be a mistake , it cant be
God....i just hate when facts get in the way of my fellows HF posters thinking
Phil is a very good Hockey player, can step up in a 2C role when needed and doing so very well right now, eventually i see him in the 3C spot whenever CJ feel that KK is ready for bigger responsabilities
He is this era’s version of Tomas Plekanec minus the 2nd line offensive skills
Part 111 for the 3rd line C!!
Phil is having a nice season, but gets a little too much TOI for my liking...would like to see him and Koko change places.
The avalanches first line is not on that list. Loss all credibility IMO.
Maybe he's our David Legwand, but Legwand broke 60 once.
Lol at this whole article. Yup danault is a catalyst for a line that’s top 5 in the nhl
What a horse**** piece
1 goal being insulated. Ok Berkshire. Move on
I guess danault is now better than mackinnon, Bergeron , monohan ..
Lol. No team would trade any of those players for danault
What a piece of garbage article
On the Top 10 reasons why we are sucking so bad Danault's name is nowhere to be found
No **** he's not a legit Top 6 C but we have nobody else at the moment who can play Top 6, not his fault, same as Plekanec before him
Its nothing like the coddling DD got when there were better options, PD is doing all the heavy lifting up the middle, 100% opposite of DD
KK playing 3rd C and PP is a perfect situation for the rookie, just need to get some healthy bodies and get his better line mates back
Plekanec was a legitimate second-line centre, for the approximate period 2008-2015. He had a good run.
He was definitely better than Danault but given the ice time and line mates Pleks had those last fews years he was probably on the bottom end pts wise of where a contending team needs the 2C to be but he was having to fill 1C due to lack of options - especially anyone you could trust to play a 200 ft game which is where Danault is having to fill in now
Danault at least provides comfort typically in the sense that he wont be a liability on the ice. However, you couldn't even say that tonight. He was not responsible with the puck, and that kind of play won't cut it whether we are talking about 1C, 2C, or even 3C.
It was an off night, but it looks worse when he has an off night, because he's playing out of his capacity to begin with.
fact ? seriously ? no mention of McKinnon/Rantaanen in the article... are you too thinking Habs line is better than the Avs line ? seriously ? that's what you consider a fact ? Habs line is so ****ing far ahead McKinnon/Rantaanen are not even mentionned in the "article"...
and you're making a post, trying to mock people who disagree with the dumb article ?
Maybe if we can acquire Pastrnak and Hall and never play them without Danault, Phil will finally be that 50 point center we all knew he secretly was. Checkmate, h8ers!
Are you actually mocking those of us that feel that way about Phil Danault?
Not true, how can i mock someone for disagreeing with an article that i didnt even read
Just a joke maybe not the best one but still only a joke
Dont get so riled up, take a deep breath, everything is fine Habs lost yesterday you should be a happy men now
Wow, you guy's are very sensitive
I hope Poehling is ready sooner rather than later.
Not at all but you basically quoted what I had said about Danault a few days earlier and phrased it as if you were quoting me in a mocking manner. If I misunderstood that then I apologise.
lol so if he doesn't have the offensive skills, then how is he like Pleks? Just because he plays defence?
Danault is a great player in many aspects, just isn't a true scorer. He's better than others but he's proving himself to not be 2c. He is a 3c, it's just a matter of how good a one can he become? Can he improve his production? Can he improve his faceoff prowess? Maybe even a bump up in his skating, which is already good.
The thing about Danault and the D core this year for that matter, is that both are close to being resolved. We have alot of D prospects that will have a crack at a spot next year, and we should be trending up with number of young D we should have from Brook, Fleury, Juulsen, Mete, Reilly,etc.
As for Danault, between Domi, KK, Poehling, Evans at the very least next camp, he will be in tough to retain that 2C spot, especially with KK. I could see us being an even more of a roll-all-lines team, with Danault as 4C:
The type of comment you made we see too often and its dumb as hell, Theres nothing funny about it. Maybe the first few thousand Times. Dont worry though Takes more than that to shake me.
