@DJBrianBurke @Jmessih My Habs buddy bet me a pitcher of beer that they would sweep the home and home.  He was right....it was a sweep.  LOL!

@MaxwellHowe I didn't see that.....but to each his own.  I thought Rielly had a very good game though.  It almost looks like he "gets it" now....

@MaxwellHowe Not sure about that.....they were outshot 14-5 in the third.....

@DeclanK @newkb @hometeem @Savo43 Knowing that ROR is going to cost huge in assets and cap space, is that something you do?  I mean, you have to know for certain that he's a #1 before you spend assets and cap space like he's a #1.  The numbers say maybe.....

@DeclanK @newkb @hometeem @Savo43 Same here.  But run 4 solid C's over a #1 at the commensurate cost.

@DeclanK @hometeem @Savo43 So now might be the time to lob an offer at baby Schenn.....what do you think?  Probably would be the easiest to pry out of there now....

@Savo43 @newkb @DeclanK So is he batter than Bozak on the defensive side?  I mean, Bozak had 8 less points last year in 23 less games, and this year they are running identically....not that I think Bozak is a #1c, by any means, but he is doing a lot better than 95% of the options we pine for on here...

@Savo43 @newkb @DeclanK He's elite though?  When I think elite, Stepan doesn't really come to mind.....

@DeclanK @Savo43 Who is NYR's #1c?  I actually don't know.  Brassard?  Can Bozak match with that?

@Burtonboy @newkb In all honesty, I want him to succeed.  I just want him to make safer plays when under pressure.  That Pittsburgh gaffe cost them the game....and he's cost too many games this year already.  But I will admit he had a decent game tonight....no glaring gaffes.  You are right with the age thing....finally Franson (another of my ughhhh players) is having a very good season.  He is blossoming right now.....


But you need to minimize mistakes at every turn.  This team can score, what it needs is to be able to defend.....

@Burtonboy Gardiner's first average/slightly above game IMO.  Before tonight, he was decidedly below average.  But he needs to show a lot more, and a lot more often for me to actually come around.  Rielly IMO looked like he'got it' tonight.......might have been the pairings.

@DeclanK @Zep2 I think he will get about 80% there.  And that will make him a solid 4-5-6.

@AlbertaMapleLeaf He's playing exactly like he was signed to play.  Except he should have got a 10 game suspension for running OV after the Leo blindside hit....

Gardiner needs to go.  His brain dead play in OT - firing a hopelessly impossible angle shot wide of the net with 2 Leafs going towards the net - created an odd man rush back down the ice that led to Pitts winning goal. The proper play would have been to stop up and wait for the trailing guy, or dump it behind the net to his oncoming mates, or curl back and set up.   He makes good plays with no pressure on him, but he makes the wrong decision every time when he's faced with multiple options.  3 out of the 4 options were safer and had greater scoring potential.  Even losing the puck there would have been better....no flying head start for the Pens. He was also going for a skate on the first goal....


Seriously.....just move him.  His hockey IQ is just not NHL caliber....

@Yaknowwhat Which he has already done twice....you think it will miraculously change this time when he gets benched here?  He would be 4th line here...he has proven zero in his career this far...and would cry like a baby again.  Because if you give him an undeserved chance, you are undermining your own argument about Carlyle.  Pick which foot you want to eat...

@Cloud09 @newkb Not going to disagree....but which one will garner a healthy return (for now), and which one will cost assets plus retained salary to move?
