    Backstrom now 50th all time in assists with 714. Could be a top 10 assist player before all is said and done. :)

    Edit: Gordie Howe is 10th all time in assists with 1,049.

    Postgame you have mantha just praising how great of a guy Dillon is.

    when he got traded from SJ karlsson sajd same thing.

    Dillon has had ups and downs for sure - but sometimes great character guys you need in locker room.

    kinda reminds me of Orpik. Paying a lot for a guy for mainly his character/locker room... and sometimes that’s okay

    IMO, mediocre teams pay extra for good character guys. Elite teams pay the right amount for good players, and get "good character" as a bonus.

    Orpik actually ended up playing well enough for the Caps to basically justify his salary on that alone.

    If you have to justify a guy's spot on the roster by his intangibles, it's almost always a sure sign of poor roster construction.

    Chemistry is huge. You got to be able to play but character counts for a lot, too.

    If you can make the other players around you play better, then that’s the stuff of champions.

    Can we all start to see why he’s So Much More then Vrana? And I really liked Vrana.

    They are not close to comparable

    Nope. He was talking about Larkin. He was trying to say, “Dylan’s a great guy and he’s my buddy but he’s not even close to the type of players I just spent this game in a line with.” Without actually saying that.

    You must be taking to @Hivemind? I can see why putting someone on ignore is a challenge. Although he has done it to more posters than anyone. LOL

    clown he is

    Manthaaaaaa!

    Lets not fight over the trade for every game thread this season, ok? Its too early anyways and lets try to be happy for a minute after beating down two annoying teams 8- and 6-1.

    Sure Bruins had AHL-def and Flyers didnt look good today, but the way we rolled over them was promising. Engines working. And the new guy got exactly the debut you would hope for him. Good leg to start building for AM.

    And love him praising Dillon just after i argued for him in the other thread against ”dump Dillon”ers :)

    Hockey is fun again. Hope Vrana also scores in his Det debut.

    I think this is a poor take. You are talking like this team is the Senators or the Red Wings.

    All teams — and the good ones in particular in sports leagues everywhere — need players that help to make the room solid.

    You’ve become seemingly pretty critical over the last year or so. Maybe that’s the issue here.

    I haven't beem watching the Caps the past 2 weeks and so I missed the bad stretch of play. Come back and we score 14 goals to 2 in back to back games. So I'm kinda scratching my head here and saying what bad stretch? :dunno:

    The only thing I notice that is different is that we haven't let teams back in after big leads anymore.

    I don’t understand why they wouldn’t protect Schultz and VV
    After seeing this guy be the best player on the ice in his 1 game in what reality could the 1st have improved their cup chances more than bringing in this rig?

    I think it's okay to say "All Detroit fans are welcome!" As long as you hate the Pens, Isles and Rangers. Oh, and the Bruins.

    But mostly just the Pens :laugh:

    All true Detroit fans will hate the Pens after they had a Cup stolen from them.

    Moving up the Finals for no reason other than to give the younger team a significant advantage.

    Malkin not getting suspended a game for instigating a fight in the last 5 minutes.

    Let's wait more. Shall we? I'm still skeptical. That was a report on him: that he can be absolutely a top player in this league if he was motivated more. If he was what you described, no way Detroit would trade him.

    Im going to ignore anything that doesnt back up my defence for Dillon. So Ill just go on thinking Mantha has praised Dillon and ignore the facts and your post. Sorry.
