Bah - I don't want them to trade Cally. While he hasn't shown up on the scoresheet as much as we would've liked, I don't think his leadership and the tone he sets for the team should be discounted. I also have the feeling that if this team makes the playoffs, his role is going to increase again significantly. We will be wishing for him and his physical presence when the going gets tough and Alain Vigneault's regular season style of play loses its effectiveness.

I like the idea of a healthy scratch. If nothing else it let's him reset mentally. I'd even go so far as to give him the weekend off - sat & sun, and call up and slot in JT Miller.

"It's time for a change. A shakeup. Anything."

 

That was my feeling exactly after the game. Something has to give, and I hope its not just a silly peripheral move like sending someone down or calling up someone to play 5 min a game.

I still keep holding out hope that the team just needs time to gel. That coupled with the injuries isn't allowing for any chemistry to build up. Biron in net on Thursday? He deserves another shot.

 @Fleisch Maybe it's my economics degree and my understanding of labor law, but I just don't get bent out of shape about labor negotiations. It's part of doing business in a market.

 

Yeah, the owners and the players in this market are arguing over numbers that are hard for you and me to comprehend, however, it's still "negotiations" and its 2 parties that need to come to a compromise to sort it out. I know it feels like there should be more loyalty to fans, but plain and simple, it's a business. Like charmin toilet paper, or General Motors, nhl players and owners enter the market to maximize their value and to make money. Charmin doesn't make delicately soft toilet tissue to make you feel good, they do it to make money. The same way the New York Rangers and the NHL don't exist for public good, they exist to make money.

 

Also keep in mind that there is loyalty - the players and the NHL do a ton of work for charity. Just because it's on a grander scale in terms of dollars shouldn't cloud it too much. I'm on the side of labor in this case, but I understand that negotiations are tough. I don't think the league or players hate their fans, but they are looking for their interests first, just as you or I would if we were in a market trying to maximize our value.

 @Fleisch I love how people take it so personally. If GM locked out its employees would you never buy a GM car again? Doubtful? You probably wouldn't even take notice. It's just business.
