    When you are rebuilding, the best strategy is to have numbers. Have lots of prospects. Lots of lottery tickets. If Mete makes top 4, great. If he doesn't, one of your others does. The idea here is to hoard prospects. If we want to finish this rebuild, we need to add prospects at the defence position, not trade them away for guys who are 10 years older. Mete should be one of many.

    Can't change my post, but you heard it from the man himself folks, Peca in. I'm flying up there shortly and will be in attendance for this game, so I am hoping for some Kotkaniemi dishes, Weber clappers, Drouin dangles, Price robberies and perhaps even some Domi punches.

    Keeping with tradition, here's my GDT after a win last game. I'm tied up at work so if someone else wants to post the lines and other stuff that'd be great

    Jarret Tyszka returned for Seattle last night after missing the first couple of months with that concussion he suffered in the rookie tournament. To celebrate, he got in a fight.

    Brutal might be a bit strong, but hes been soft on his passes and just not making good decisions. He has regress the past 6 or 7 games, which was bound to happen. I bet he does go to world jr s. I keep reading people saying he has nothing to prove in the tournament, but it acts as a refresh for him. Let him gain some confidence back and take a break from the nhl grind

    Price had a very solid period. He seems to be back to being Carey

    I don't think now is the time to try and accelerate things by getting a 30 year old defenceman. We are not near close enough on that. Which is why I lean towards, keep the kid, and prove your assessment correct or incorrect. Stay on the side of keeping the future assets because this move is not making us a contender. If we are talking a 24 year old dman instead of a guy who turns 30 in february, then yeah, i can see moving Mete.

    I dont see the team loaning out kotkaniemi. Hes not struggling in the way that mete was. Just look at the pass he made to lehkonen last night. As well as the fact his line is still getting a ton of chances. (Lehkonen two goals saturday. Byron many chances vs san jose). I just dont see it. I am also not sure that its beneficial to take a player succeeding at the nhl level and put him in under 20 hockey. If hes struggling in the nhl, sure. But now.. i dont think he would benefit playing a lower level of hockey.

    "With 7:30 left to play, a soft zone clearing attempt by David Schlemko (who had been playing well up to this point) resulted in a turnover. With Petry and Peca both covering their players, Matt Duchene was able to find Stone alone in the slot as Schlemko did not cover his man. Stone, being the sniper that he is, took advantage of the space given to him to beat Price and make it 5-2. " If i remember correctly, Schlemko was standing alone behind net admiring his attempted clearing, then came late to front of net and weakly tried to block shot.

    Sure - why not? The team could keep close tabs on him and he'd get more ice time than he has been getting lately (he was dead last in TOI yesterday in a three-goal game which is pretty telling). Here's a scenario I could see playing out - next week, Kotkaniemi gets loaned out (Mete was loaned on the 11th, for anyone wondering) and Evans gets the recall. If they want to assess his progress in a non-fourth line role, this would be the opportunity to do so; he'd have nearly a full month to showcase himself. If he falters, I could then see Peca getting a look on the third line - I think he'd fare better there with more skilled players than on the fourth line. This time next month, management can then decide whether to bring Kotkaniemi back or put him in Laval for the time being. He'd still have ~8 games left before accruing a UFA year so the demotion wouldn't necessarily be for the rest of the year; they could still bring him up at some point.

    as long as the deal is not a rental and that player is a signed commodity, i'm ALL FOR upgrading this team at any time as long as the deal is of value (meaning we are not bamboozled) Would i trade good assets for Zack Werenski? Slavin? f'N right i would! Jake Muzzin? nothing blue chip thats for sure a pending UFA like Karlsonn or Myers: absolutely not, unless the deal involved compensation if we signed him long term.

    Chaput, Agostino and Deslauriers won't be difference makers either

    I’m not saying we lost a diamond and I’m not saying we lost a flip... My point is that the kid was drafted in the 1st round. Has dominated in the AHL for a stretch. Suffered a bit with injuries that slowed his development and was never really given a roll of the dice in the NHL. The few games he did get, he was able to show flashes of what he could be (potential). At the end of the day he’s only 22. agostino 26 chaput 26 deslaurier 28 -I believe all would of cleared waivers -you know what your getting -we still don’t know with Scherbak which is why he’s worth keeping. Most likely, MB and Julien saw enough of him to believe he would never pan out or just isn’t what they are looking for in a player... not enough “character” very bad “attitude”..

    A 10 million dollar goalie needs to stop the first goal 100% of the time. The team seems to have reduced odd man rush and lateral pass plays against. I needed to see price perform now. Over a year of sub par performance.

    That's great for the super-rich. Meanwhile all the other guys are putting their long-term health at great risk and their teams can f*ck them right up the arse to boot. What a brutally exploitative system - a metaphor for the economy under globalization if I ever heard one. How about this alternative: don't be a dumbass GM and give Karl Alzner huge term and money in the first place. Beyond that, teams SHOULD pay a price for managerial stupidity. The idea that GMs and organizations don't have to take responsibility, but only players do, is dumb.
