    Play the lad on the PK. Play the lad on the PP. Play the lad on the 2nd pair at ES. Then we have a #3 defenseman. Not 14 minutes and no special teams time.

    Might as well sticky this post for the Hakstol tenure. I'm not mad. You're mad. He's DEFINITELY mad.

    He reminds me of Anakin from Episode III with that pic.

    Lets see how many games it takes for him to get appropriate usage.

    Didn't we trade this bust two years ago due to lack of progression?

    Wouldn't Hakstol be more like Mace Windu?

    Mace Windu doubted Anakin.

    I'm not sure who Obi-wan or Palapatine would be.

    The entire organization acts a Mace Windu towards him.

    Reads the play. Sees Vegas is caught. Jumps up in the rush. Slides it under Holden's stick.
    They didn't even mention his name on the broadcast or during intermission. :laugh:

    edit- This was at the end of a minute long shift too. If he wasn't well rested he probably just goes off for a change. Points for Hak.

    They don't specifically praise him, but they do say "Sanheim" twice during this clip.

    But for real though, Hakstok is Jar Jar. He thinks he's Sith Lord conspiracy theorist Jar Jar. But he's just regular ol' Jar Jar.

    In other news, while searching Star Wars gifs, I found Hexy when he was hiring Jeff:

    Not on the National Broadcast. Pierre had a chance to get a Calgary Hitmen plug in and he didn't do it.

    Are you guys hung up that people aren't pumping Sanheim's tires?

    Oh, I see. I cannot watch the main NBC guys with the sound on anymore. I wish Emrick would retire.

    It's not COLLEGE, so that phallus wasn't interested.

    I’ll take a national broadcast over ours any day of the week. I was doing it in the playoffs when they weren’t getting blacked out for me.

    He was the first one to hug Lindblom on the goal for those keeping score at home.

    yea, I noticed they didn't mention Sanheim on the broadcast.

    They gave credit to every young player except for him.

    Just trade the guy then, if the organization doesn't like him. Trade him while he still has value instead of discarding him at some point.

    I’m not worried about the broadcasters pumping praise or not. Sanheim looked solid, he’s not physically intimidating yet but he’s handling bodies much better than a year ago, his stickwork and positioning (minus the one fall lol) are looking sharp, and his offensive instincts were apparent even in limited ice time.

    I’m not even all that worried about his and Gudas’ ice time tbh. They probably carry second pair minutes if we don’t go up by 4 and Hak-shell the rest of the way.

    It’s only one game but i thought it was a really encouraging night for him, and bodes well for the rest of the season.

    If Sanheim keeps playing like this, he'll be up to 16-17 ES minutes by November.
    And as he shows he can handle pressure, he'll get more PK time.

    And eventually Knob will work him into the PP, though that's probably a low priority this year simply due to all the potential candidates (I think at some point they're going to look at Vorobyev, for example).

    The organization and the broadcast are two separate things...

    You realize that, right?

    Them mentioning him or not means absolutely nothing.
