lots of guys playing that aren't really all that good.  i mean, of course they're ultra talented by comparison to all the people playing in the world.  but there really is a huge seperation between good players and bad out there.

but i think that's what makes it entertaining.

not sure.  maybe something to do with the equipment partly.  i don't see the massive shoulder pads.  the advertising has a slimming look somewhat too.  the picture quality.  dunno.

i would play Gardiner with our 4 shittiest players all the time.  let Jake rag the puck while the others crash the net, backcheck, and try to figure out what the hell he's going to do next.  i think it would be entertaining.

meanwhile, Jake's talent would eventually strike a goal or two for us, without needing Kessel or Kadri to make it happen.

i don't think it's hurting him at all either.  he's got a two year contract doesn't he?  he has a chance to grow with only the pressure he puts on himself this year, and then next year the expectations will rise and i expect he'll have more opportunity with a different type of presure to earn his next contract (based more on what he is and not what he will become).

if that makes sense.  i think it makes sense right now where he's at.

Holland's been getting more PK opportunity. he could help his cause a lot by improving at face offs and by getting a scoring chance here and there and looking dangerous occasionally (even in 4 minutes a night there's opportunity).

sometimes judgement is just easier with visual evidence and when the name is still popular.

not a lot of people wouldn't know who those guys are.

they simply need to expand the debate so more people get interested in it.

it's not the 1970's Canada where people cared about hockey more than anything else.

remember when Komarov was here in his first go around, a few of us were saying he'd be ideal on the 4th line.  now Winnik seems to also be that sort of guy.

it's not a slight against them, it's just to say that "wouldn't it be splendid to have a deeper lineup"

i don't think much of Booth.  but wouldn't it be nice if he could slot into that top 9 and not drag it down at all?

no one called Maurice lucky when he started in the Jets last year ... they started winning games, but no one seemed to care that the schedule was soft as possible when he took over.

wins are wins and everyone has bad losses.  the effort vs BOS was lacking, but the team was also coming off an emotional obscurity in OTT, and who knows but them how that affected them?

did anyone else feel the ACC was the most "reserved" of the three buildings during the simulcast ceremony?

was John Moore the first suspension this year?  i've seen a number of incidents that i thought warranted a few games but i don't think the league agreed.

that's a lot of grit missing from their lineup

Leafs will still have to match thier efforts.  and if the game plays out similar to the first half of the game in BUF, Columbus still has some players who can be a lot more dangerous on the PP or in limited chances.

we need to play a full 60, and again just buckle down and go to work shift after shift, start to finish.  aka we can't let their extra skill worry us if we're not scoring.  keep plugging away.

if i might continue...and if Hasek gets the tougher CHI game in the back to back and plays well often enough, eventually the coach is going to notice.

if Hasek beats CAR, BUF and the bottom feeders it will take more than a 3 and 0 record and 940 save percentage to get him to that next level unless the Roy falters too badly
