Nearly everyone on this board wanted nurse
I like it.
I would **** my pants if such a streak would happen to us.
Offensively. And even then the difference is almost completely to do with pp opportunities and performance. Going back to 2016-2017 both players have 54 ES points. Risto in 195 games. Nurse in 170 games. But is he way better as an all round defenseman. Even if people are not convinced of Nurse's defensive abilities Risto can be an absolute train wreck defensively. At ES Nurse with all of his flaws probably wins this comparison and possibly by a fair bit. By the way, Nurses ES goal scoring has been very strong. He is tied for 29th in the League over the last three years.
After being completely choked that we missed out on Monahan I wanted Horvat with that pick. He was not very fancy but he was and is a horse. Of course I would have also been happy if the moved down and pick Lazar so its not like I can claim to be much more than a flat out hack. Still I don't really regret the Nurse pick at all even with Risto after him. I think Risto's fast start and big pp numbers really inflate people's perception of the player.
The people that say that bs should have to clean his hockey gear with their tongues after each game. What a shame we have such clueless fans
I liked Horvat as well but we needed D in a bad way and Nurse checked all the boxes. I’m a big Nurse fan
Because these armchair GM’s are idiots
I believe we are coming into week 5 of injury. After this home stand it’s all star break then I would say he will be back. Is it safe to say that Sekera is done? I will never understand the Manning trade. Trade a guy that was scoring for a guy to sit in pb and make 2.5$ ? Wow . If Chia was an Eskimo, I could sell him ice
I picked him for 35-40 pts at first of year but I also picked Puju for 25 goals. You win some, you lose some
Exactly. I can see Nurse wearing a letter very soon. This man is a beast.
This cat is in this video as well.
The "Grass is always greener..." syndrome.
Darnell played 31:49 with 12 shot attempts and 8 shots on goal.
Our forwards had 11.
Nurse has more goals on the season than any forward not named mcdavid, nuge, drai or chiasson
but yeah lets trade him for jonathon drouin
I just want Chia gone so bad before he makes another panic move and we lose another substantial piece of the puzzle.
It's a crime that he forces McDavid to play with all these scrubs
Hitch in the post-game presser:
6 games left before all-star break, hang in there boys!
I am so glad only McDavid will be going to the all-star break, he's a freak of nature anyway, Draisaitl on the other hand will get some well earned rest.
Not to nitpick but wasn’t he the only one to respond to the Lindholm hit? We also have a smorgasbord of “toughness” that can stand up for McDavid any given time: Lucic, Kassian, Nurse, Khaira etc. He’s just filling space until we cycle in the next AHL call up.
Funny that Ristolainen got brought up. I actually said last night that Nurse was having a Ristolainen-like year. Great raw offensive numbers but he's getting absolutely murdered in shot and goal differential.
Because nudge should play a perfect game every game ? We must have been waching different games because I saw many other players having far worse game then nudge.
I think tonight was perfect for everyone. The team still looked really flawed, the best players (who Chiarelli did nothing to acquire) won the game for the team and the fans were entertained.
I think you can fully fire the GM for obvious issues with the team even though they won.
Edit: Jones earning time in OT, this kid is really making a lot of his opportunity, it's great to see.
Oh, he's real and he's unspectacular.
Nurse for G. Reinhart
