  1. Hard to take much out of press conferences but Beregevin said that there are elite teams like Washington Pittsburgh then everyone else is really tight. To most this would seem pretty obvious but it is telling that he does not see us as top contenders currently. Perhaps this lends itself to a trade. Personally I think we'd need two pieces who combined wouldn't be justified getting now but i'm interested to see what we do.
  2. Anyone think the quality of chances Price has been facing have gone up lately? Barbario-Johnston is actually terrifying.
  3. He looked awful towards the end of last season and if memory serves end of the season before (though that may be wrong). I've always been a big Pleks fan but the writing has been on the wall and shouldn't have surprised people.
  4. Max Pacioretty - Phillip Danault - Alexander RadulovArtturi Lehkonen - Tomas Plekanec - Brian FlynnPaul Byron - Torrey Mitchell - Brendan GallagherDaniel Carr - Michael McCarron - Chris Terry Does this mean we traded Weise and Fleischmann for a #1 Center?
  5. I dunno I've seen a few McCarron games in person at the AHL level and he has shown some incredibly soft hands around the net while being quick to get the puck off his stick in transition. Also the games I saw he was stationed in front of the net for St John's where he handled lose pucks very well... There are aspects of his game that could translate to a 2C. I don't think he'll hit that level because well... I generally am hesitant about big guys for obvious reasons... but to say what he shows on the ice means he has no ability to become a 2C kinda makes me wonder what you're smoking. Yes it isn't consistent but as a ceiling 2C isn't as ridiculous a statement as you make it out to be... do I think he'll be a top six center? No.
  6. I mean I haven't said that Galchenyuk is just in a run of good form. I think he is great. I said Weber has been really good and I never said he was going to get worst. I specifically was talking about problems that the team will face and mentioned some problems. I had solid reasoning for what I was saying but I mean you can just ignore that and pretend I wasn't making points if you don't happen to agree with them haha not how dialogue is supposed to go but w.e. I'll revert to lurking.
  7. Oh I believe in a number of our players and have always loved Plekanec.... but he had an incredibly terrible end to last season I mean the man is 34 years old there is going to be a slow down. My problem with Emelin is his skating versus teams like Tampa, plus we've seen five years of Emelin and despite him playing some good hockey this year I'm hesitant to believe this is Emelin and not just a run of good form. Obviously I'd love for Pleks/Markov to be able to hold up for the playoffs and Emelin come up big... just logically it is hard to believe it will.
  8. negative stuff that has precedent. I mean we can ignore the fact Markov and Pleks have fallen off towards the end of the past few seasons... but sticking our head in the sand probably is a bad move. Also does anyone believe Emelin can stand up against the teams we are going to have to beat in the playoffs?
  9. I'd also like to clarify that I love Pleks... just don't see him holding up. Same with Markov. Then what happens? Patryn/Redmond/Beaulieu start taking more minutes? Yikes.
  10. Markov isn't going to be holding up by playoffs and any team worth their salt is going to abuse the living hell out of Emelin. Thinking of a series against a team like Tampa... with Emelin as our #2? I mean Weber has been great but I don't think he is going to be good enough to cover for him. Couple that with Plekanec probably falling off a cliff again to end the season.... not liking our chances. Price has made this D-Core like competent when they've had major issues clearing the zone and generally transition has been mediocre at best.... it is only a matter of time.
  11. Primarily by completely abusing are atrocious d-core for 7 straight games.
  12. I haven't watched many habs games and thought "Damn this is definitely a 16-4 team". Still think we're completely screwed in a playoff series with the lineup as is.
  13. I seriously question this. In multiple Ice Caps games I saw he played well then would get thrown to the bench. Can you even say he was giving a chance under that wacko? edit: why did my name change? haha
  14. Of course in basketball many of the prospects are older than the NHL prospects. Adding another year to half the draft class would make for more accurate picks.
  15. I don't want Detroits playoff streak to broken tbh
  16. From games I saw in St John's he never does haha
  17. Makes you reconsider the "things we cannot discuss" statement Bergy made.
  18. I find it interesting that we have the best Goal differential of any non-playoff team and have a better one than Detroit. We are in the top half of scoring... bottom 10 for goals against.
  19. If you have watched our AHL team under Lefebvre it is safe to say we would more likely go 5-15 with him as intern. That man has been a useless waste of space and a talent killer.
