Ya, Tarasenko looks to be the steal of the draft in a couple pools I took him.

I would package Bozak & Gardiner for a centre, but he'd have to be a bit younger than Marleau.
Would you give you right nut though?
"In things you'd do", you state that you'd put Kadri on the top PP unit, because he'd provide Kessel with the one-timer option in the slot that Bozak doesn't.
While I agree that Kadri should be on the 1st PP unit, especially since he is now playing 5-on-5 with Kessel, it's well known that Kessel doesn't possess a very effective one-timer and that he plays along the half-board, rather than in the slot on the PP.
He was definitely looking quite grubby!

If he turns out to be a solid 3rd line shutdown centre, I'll be happy.
I don't think he has the offensive ability to play in the Top Six.

True, but how can one be sure over the internet if you were the one who thought it was Mountain Police and trying to correct them by positing that
He opens his desk drawer and makes it unconcealed?
The question here is, why is the man in charge of security at the House of Commons not outfitted with a sidearm at all time?
@Burtonboy Very Classy
Ya, just did a little bit of research on that.
Either way, why are our soldiers not armed when they're on duty?
I saw the video and to be fair, it'd be damn near impossible to tell who exactly killed the man, as there were lots of Officers present and multiple gun shots heard.
Did they say MOUNTAIN Police or MOUNTED Police?
Hard to tell if you're trying to write it the way you think it should be or the way they wrote it.
Yup and I guess the Raps are playing an Israeli team tonight?
Why was he armed and not the Soldier who was shot at the War Memorial?
If they're heading back to Toronto, I guess that means tomorrow night is out of the question.
With a team like that, it's probably the only time the building gets rocking!

Maybe kids under 15 years old, but before the turn of the century, the World Juniors just weren't a big thing.
Truth be told, outside Canada, they still aren't!
Ya, that's what I was thinking last year, but we still end up losing to them!
So, if there's only one shooter and he's obviously dead now, I'm guessing the game will be rescheduled for tomorrow night, considering both teams are off till Saturday and there are no events at the Canadian Tire Centre scheduled for tomorrow night.
I'm gonna say yes.
I hope they finish last and lose the Draft Lottery!
Well, when I was born the WJC wasn't basically an unknown event to the regular person, so I'm gonna say no.
I was thinking more because of Christmas and New Years Eve.
No word yet.
I guess it depends if the situation is somewhat under control by then.
I found growing up, there were alot more September babies than any other time.
As long as everything is cleared up by then
Well, what to do tonight?
Stevie Y. didn't backcheck when he first came into the league either!

Depth isn't that bad, Randy is just a tool.
There's no reason a line of Panik/Holland/Frattin can't play around 10 minutes a night.

Game Review up:
I didn't call him an idiot for putting them out there.
Can anybody honestly expect players to be in the game when they only get one shift a period?
Put them out thereon a semi-regular basis and you might see some better results!
And the crosschecking penalty they called on Kessel was brutal, as was the one on JVR in the second.
Not to mention the "too many men on the ice" penalty, when Kessel clearly had his body half way over the boards when Clarkson took control of the puck.
Ya, adding a former 1st overall pick wouldn't make the team better at all, haha.
JVR - Bozak - Kessel
Winnik - Kadri - Yakupov
Lupul - Holland - Frattin
Komarov - Santorelli - Clarkson
You're probably right, that isn't better than what we have right now, lol.
How the fuck can you gain trust when you aren't given a chance?
I thought the whole point of demoting Orr and McLaren was so the 4th line could play 10-odd minutes a night.
Hell, we might as well have an enforcer or two in the lineup if they 4th line is only gonna play 3 minutes a game.
You think Edmonton is gonna trade Yakupov for Franson?
They might give up Yakimov, but not Yakupov, haha!
Maybe, but how long is it gonna take him to get up to speed after missing almost 2 months?
Pretty hard to save your career, when your coach plays you less than 3 minutes.
Hell, it'd be hard enough to do that with 3 minutes a period!!
Fucking Randy!! Back-to-back games and you basically only play 3 lines.
You could also argue that Gustavasson stole Detroit 2 points
We just have to wait 2 more seasons :-(
Ya, I think he's OK, but he definitely shouldn't be playing on the top pairing!!
Shelter him on the third pairing and use him on the PP.
On the PP, I'd personally put a playmaker (Gardiner/Rielly) with a shooter (Phaneuf/Franson)
The problem is we don't have the depth to roll out 4 scoring lines.
Sure the Komarov/Santorelli/Clarkson line could probably be considered more of a checking line, but Panik and Frattin aren't exactly scoring wingers and who else do we have to put with Holland?
OK, maybe not happy, but atleast they have something to build off of.
Sure they didn't score a goal, but they also held a Detroit team (who scored 4 against them a night earlier) to no goals for 64 minutes and 50 seconds.
The Komarov/Santorelli/Clarkson lines has been solid and is building chemistry and we all know what the JVR/Bozak/Kessel line is capable of. Now we just need Kadri & Lupul to get things going with Winnik and Carlyle to gain some faith in the fourth line.
So, is it pretty much fullout panic mode on here tonight, haha?
After a game like that, we should be happy the boys put together a solid effort and came out with a point.
A top six of JVR/Bozak/Kessel & Lupul/Kadri/Yakupov would be dynamic!!
With that being said, I'd probably drop Lupul to the third line with Holland to balance things out and leave the Komarov/Santorelli/Clarkson line together for energy.

I'd take Yakupov.
A change of scenery might be all he needs!
True, even though the Wings didn't score on the PP, it did hurt the momentum we were building.
That's not true at all.
The Oilers have a ton of talent on their team, but they have fallen into the routine of losing and need a change of scenery.
