  1. Silf - Lundestrom - Rakell maybe some chemistry with a Swede line. Zegras - Henrique - Comtois Henrique has the experience and younger guys will give him new life. Grant -Getz- Terry Getz can still create plays. The 2 big guys can create space for Terry to shoot. Could be a lot of turnovers on this line Deslauriers-Backes-Heinen Deslauriers is not just a fighter. Reward him with a line that at least tries to shoot. This can't be any worse then the mixing of lines so far this year.
  2. The biggest problem with the team is that nobody likes to shoot or is a natural goal scorer. Every practice should focus on getting the puck to the net with only one or two passes. They try to make a pass or great assist and it gets turned over. I don't understand why because the team leaders all have good shots. Tevor Zegras had 9 primary assists in 2020. Very good but not what we need. Trevor Zebras had 7 goals and 11 assists in 2021. This is what we need. I was hoping there was some way we could have traded for Mike Hoffman before the year started. We need anyone who can find the back of the net.
  3. Phone interview with Corey Perry on Dallas team site. Was grateful for Anahiem organization for giving him a chance to play and had only positive things to say about owners and management. Sounded like he was with Getz and Fowler when he learned of buy out. Sounded happy to be starting new chapter in career and wants to win the cup. Said knee is at 100 % and he is ready to play. Wish him success in Dallas. WhataBurger is good, but not as good as In and Out
  4. Very true points. I guess the best place to hit them is in the wallet. I thought the non suspension call on Giordano's hit on Fowlers knee was a way to not show favoritism. Parros lost me when Cogliano was suspended. To this day I feel the contact was caused by Kempe turning blindly into the path that Cogs was going. Even after the contact Cogs kept looking and going in the direction the puck was going. Cogs had no history of hits to the head or dirty play.
  5. Was also wondering this but was too afraid to post it. Have never been a fan of Perry's style of play, but have always been impressed with his desire and ability to win. "Nobody is looking, I'll spray water in the opponents glove".., "The other team's fans hate me, I'll just score a goal or two while they boo". "Is that a goalie behind me, I'll just fall on him". But also a hard core warrior that takes hits, slashes, face washes, and punches from just abought anyone in front of the net. He seems to also be a great business man. "Getzlaf got $8,250,000.00 per year? I'll wait 10 days and get $8,650,000.00 for the same amount of time". I would wish him luck, but he seems to be the kind of person that makes his own luck.
  6. Bring back enforcers. We need someone to deal out on ice justice if this guy is going to win the Norris. Play hard, check hard, be a pest. Just don't potentially end someone career with intentional head or knee hits.
  7. Rebound goal for Cogliano. Hope they send Nashville home.
  8. Looks like Giordano just took out McDavid in a meaningless game.
  9. I really don't think the players would go along with tanking. Telling our veteran players we are going into rebuilding mode is essentially telling them their time is done. The coach could put together horrible lines that can't score or defend. Maybe bench or trade players that are performing. ( Almost seems like this is what is happening). I think more then likely players are in panic mode and are afraid to do anything wrong. Puck luck, angry hockey Gods or who knows why and they get down a point and are afraid to touch the puck. The ones that want to do something chase the puck out of their position and leave open ice that can be exploited. I really hope they don't break Gibson mentally or physically.
  10. Silfverberg's production has kind of leveled off since he signed his last contract almost 3 years ago. If we need to resign him, I would go for the seem contract he has. He is not producing more points then Rakell so should now be paid more. I would like to see what kesler can do when he is not assigned the hardest player to guard every night. His grit, heart and drive would be fine somewhere else. Not sure where yet.
