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?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 like Percy, but I can't help but think he's gonna slow down as the season progresses and nobody's play has ever regressed by playing in the AHL.


At some point, I'd send him to the Marlies and roll with this:


Phaneuf  -   Robidas

Rielly   -   Polak

Gardiner   -   Franson


PP1: Rielly   -   Phaneuf

PP2: Gardiner   -   Franson


PK1: Phaneuf   -   Robidas

PK2: Franson   -   Polak

Franson should be sheltered in a third pairing roll, facing the oppositions weakest players and getting time on the PP, not playing on the top pairing with Phaneuf against the oppositions strongest players.


Hell, I might even try pairing Polak or Rielly with Phaneuf, while sheltering Franson on the third pairing with Gardiner.
