  1. Berube is a good coach, but he's not going to be able to turn crummy D-men into good D-men by tweaking their positioning a little, he doesn't have a Benjamin Button potion to administer to John Tavares, and he's not going to be able to magically give Mitch Marner the balls to visit the middle of the offensive zone during the playoffs.

    Or he was never going to be more than he is. An nhler but a 3rd 4th liner. Maybe development, maybe not.

     

    I'm in this camp....I believe that he was never worthy of his draft position, and it was a screw-up of epic proportions by Bergevin and his scout team.  How much better would we be with Brady Tkachuk in our top 6?  Or Quinn Hughes on our blueline?  Sickens me.

  3. Wifi being hurt yet again is so disheartening.  We finally get a player with some toughness, but he appears injury prone and probably shouldn't fight very often if at all from here on out to prevent further shoulder issues.

    -Harris just isn’t physical enough and doesn’t bring the offence you’d want from a non-physical dman. May be a bad night, but was really disappointed in him and how easily he was pushed around.

     

    I see this from him damn near every game he plays.  The way he chased the puck carrier into the corner, and then halfway to the blueline along the boards to take himself out of position on the Backlund goal was frustrating.  I'm hoping that our abundance of D prospects pushes him out of the picture sooner than later.

    Even better.  He can go float in Liiga from here on out....a definitive stamp on Bergevin and his scouting team being complete idiots for drafting him.

    Plays himself through waivers, but with 50% retention Hurricanes take a shot ... even with a season left on the deal ... is KK even the 4C any more?

     

     

     

      KK is a 4th line winger now....next stop is being a healthy scratch.

  7. I'm going to miss the first few minutes of this game, because I'll be tuned into Leafs-Rangers to see if Rempe and Reaves drop the gloves right off the hop.  Hoping for a Reaves loss, and a solid performance from our first line tonight featuring a goal (or two) from 22.

    Sitting 6th worst today;

     

    Some nice options in top 10 up front and on d.

     

     

    I'm glad that the top of the draft is heavy on D-men.  Hopefully the teams that finish below us are targeting them, leaving the best shooter available for us to snag.  Scoring is our greatest need at this point by a mile.
