Even with the same personnel, getting the PP working would easily have us in third place in our division.

Law of averages tells me every player will not have a career year again.

What does the law of averages say about Price's and Weber's performance in 2019-2020? They (and Niemi) certainly did not have career years, and they are two highly critical pieces of this team.

Tatar, gallagher, byron shaw put up similar numbers last year. Minus injuries 

 

Petry was good last year also.

I think the Habs are going for 100 shot attempts tonight (they're at 71 now as they slowed down in the second half of the period).  I wonder when the last time that happened?

Aging defenseman probably will decline.  Price is a potential game changer fir sure. I would love to see it. Just as a rule good but not great players are inconsistent. I don't expect all of the top players to remain as healthy next year.  Barring breakout from kk or drouin, I am not expecting next year to be as good as next year.  Hope I'm wrong.

How about a new backup goalie? That, too, should win us some additional games. That, plus a mediocre (as opposed to atrocious) PP and some growth from Kotkaniemi, should have us ahead of where we are now, even without other roster moves.

the fact that they are playing with 4, yes 4 bottom pair dmen is the big issue

Y'all are forgetting all the cap space that wasn't used this year, and the abundance available next year when assessing this team

2 LD and a back up goalie really all they need, 

 

With poehling and suzuki adding some offense up front

That's true. I assume the coaches have made sure that they know that a power play means they have a man advantage out there...:huh:

This is definitely ther same old story. Outplay em. Don't bury your chances.  Make opposing back up look like 93 Patrick Roy.  Maybe two mistakes. Get scored on  after both mistakes. Lose 2-1.

 

We have our big Finnish artillery out tonight so for the moment at least, things look better than this. The fat lady is not warming up quite yet, though.

That's a good point I hadn't considered.  K. Back on the bandwagon.

No PP productivity tonight, but I do think that this game shows that at least on some nights, we can play against the best and still hold our own. Should we make it in as the last wildcard team, I don't think it would need to be a TB sweep in the first round, either.

That was stressful...glad they pulled it off.  Total dick move by TB at the end with the empty net in a meaningless game IMO...it's a shame we weren't in a position to take off Kucherov's or Stamkos' head to send a message about the attempted padding of stats.

 

Now have to match that effort (at least) vs. Caps and hope Columbus and/or Carolina lose their next game.

They're allowed to play for the win even if the game doesn't effect the standings.

Of course they are 'allowed'...but when you put your key guys on the ice when it's meanigless, you are tempting fate and probably deserve to have bad juju roar up to bite you in the ass.
