I'm not trying to take any praise away from our young guys. They have been taking advantage of their ice time and have been a huge part in most of our wins. But I don't like this system because it's inherently flawed, the numbers are based solely on shots. I'm sure you'll agree that it wouldn't be a good idea to create lines using only a player's Corsi.

I'm not exactly sure if I like the way this figures out points. For starters it only takes into account shots for and against. I doesn't take into account pass %, goals for/against, quality scoring chances, any defensive play at all, hits, puck possession, or really anything else that has to do with hockey. For instance, when Kindle plays, he usually is paired with Huskins. Not to mention that a lot of these people are playing for only a handful of minutes a night, and usually not on the penalty kill. That last batch with the +/- is all penalty kill.

I think you meant Brad Stuart not Ian White

We miss you on the ice and I'm sure the team misses you in the locker room. Get well soon and work hard to continue doing what you love to do.

Are you going to call this break-away off-sides? Go ahead, make my day.

The Mule hasn't been skating for more than half of a season and is still looking pretty lame. Do you think they should give him a wake-up call by putting him on the lower 6 and letting Nyquist be on the top line? Do you think that would put needed energy into the Dat-tuzzi line? Or even put a scorer onto a line that has the chances every game but no one to bury them when we need them to be clutch? Your ideas.

 

Also now that our best penalty killer is gone do you think that Babsie should start loading up the PK like he has been  by playing Flips, Pasha, and Z or should he try and get the young guys some time to try and find a niche like Helmer and Abby did?
