I hope. That this is the last time the 93 stanley cup is ever mentioned. Ever again.

 

 

Well, without any more championships to draw from over the last quarter century, what the hell else can they use as the basis for these ceremonies? Jesse Belanger Night? Scott Gomez bobbleheads? Pierre Gauthier Celebration Night - ? Remembering the 'great' run of 2010? Holy slim pickings, Batman.

Easy. No more ceremonies, until there is something to be ceremonious about.

Not as bad as last year, Lehkonen had a rough game, Price was not superhuman, Petry was usual self and Mete & Tatar had trouble  with the bigger opposition.

 

If this is the worst this team plays all season when overmatched, I am alright with it. There is effort and intensity in their play this year and I am sure they will make the necessary adjustements.

 

I am optimistic about this team.

Kovalev elbow on Tucker memorial month.

Here here!  Kovalev for Prime-Minister!!

 

I must admit it was a little disappointing watching our boys getting spanked last night. Like someone else mentionned, we had the opportunities, but we couldn't finish. Hopefully that will change over the year!

Hopefully, but as I noted earlier, this team does not seem to have the natural talent to put pucks in the net reliably. I'll grant that Weber will help, but in terms of the FWs? Lots of solid secondary types, lots of chutzpa and speed, but the elite talent is just not there. This means that they have to generate more chances than a team with elite players in order to bag the same number of goals - and that if Price is merely human, they're in tough.

 

I'd be willing to bet that this team loses nearly every game in which Price lets in a questionable goal. As he goes, so will the team.

This was the big issue last year.  They owned possession for 20 games.  To the point of dominating most games. Puck square on the Crest ain't going in. You gotta get the goalie moving. The goalie never had to guess. There's no play to read because there's no play.  Just a guy with the puck shooting from wherever.

No, that would be Chelios or one of Ludwig's.

 

They are both honourable mentions. But Kovalevs was on Tucker...
