All-Star / Super vedette

All-Star / Super vedette (4/6)



  1. This kid has gotten better with each game....really three games and your moving him....for what and who Moen???????...this has to be a joke. Moen should not even be in the lineup a kid like White should be there. If he is going to move players up, try Eller or Boyd....Boyd has some NHL experience, pretty good net presence, Let Eller take his natural position between Laps and Pouliot...
  2. There s a big difference between staal and eller. size is one of them. Eller has 50 odd points in 70 odd AHL games, 2 goals in what 10 NHL games. Stall had 29 goals as an 18 year old in the NHL. No comparison Eller has shown some good things so far but to say he is a top line or top two center at this point is just wishful thinking. He could very well develop like pleks or he could even end up like Maxwell
  3. I didn't think he was that bad last night, he was a plus one, he had an assist, he was not on the ice for any goals against, watch the second goal, it all started becuase of pouliot hard on the forecheck. Your top end players like pleks, ak, gomez and gino were invisible, puliot was moved back to the third and fouth lines, they gave us all our offence.
  4. he looks alot like metro out there in his skating and both right handed shots. i didn't know much about halpren until he became a hab. i watched him last night against ottawa, he looks to have above average speed and seems to have a good sense of the game. he will help the third and fourth lines for sure. he will likely chipp in with some goals at even strengh also.
  5. benny had a really solid game last night. Pleks goal although great was the result of a really good backcheck by benny. he stripped the offensive player on the rush and made a real quick heads up pass to pleks to spring him on the partial breakaway. Pleks took over with his speed but it all started because of benny. he was good alnight on the rush...i can't wait to see him back with gionta and gomez.
  6. here we go again signing all these vets and not leaving any spots for the kids to come in an show some of their skills.....I would sooner have banked this 600000 and waited to see where we are in the standings and then decide if we needed a good vet down the stretch and hopefully in the playoffs. this effects a kids in the organization more then anything...let the kids play 8 to 10 minutes a game on the 3rd and 4th lines to see if they have what it takes... don't like this move for any reason.
  7. I think we can have a really nice young third line of Laps, Boyd, (eller, pyatt or pacs --- i haven't given up on maxwell either --- i think we could get a breakout year from him, if he could get a few points in preseason this may get him going. )----
  8. Finally a GM paying what third and fourth line players should be paid, I would of payed up to 1.25 or 1.3. Really good deal for a solid third line player. I don't know if he is being forced to pay these players what there worth because of our cap hit or he just understands what third and fourth line players are worth, either way I like it.
  9. I am not so sure he is easily replaceable, he plays the wing, center, has fleeting moments of excellence, has good size, has really quick feet, has yet to reach his prime, and we just found out in the playoffs he can score the big goals. 1.333 per year, 3 year contract, 4 million. He is exactly the type of bargain player you need on the 3rd and 4th line.
  10. I was all for dumping this guy and using our kids, but he has been growing on me every game, he does so many of the little things that go unnoticed in the game. Now that he is getting points that is an added bonus.
  11. there is a reason he was not signed until we did strictly out of necessity. I think it was a waste of money. they could have one of the kids oup and let them make mistakes and develop their game. I never seen belle play any worse and he was certainly bigger and more physical.
  12. chips is looking better aand better. most of our young secondary players are starting to look better and better. i think alot has to do with their roles and what jm is teaching these kids. he is constantly putting them in a position to succeed. chips effort and smart play is starting to grow on me.
  13. Good game Chips. Get some confidence from this game and continue to grow.
  14. There is no doubt spacek was expected to provide more on the powe play and I sure he will he is getting chances and it will just be a matter of time.... But on the flip side he has be a rock solid on the blueline for us Spacek has played really well for us this season. I think the guy quitely does a great job so he is not that noticable. He has played over 25 minutes per game, 17th among all deeman in the league and plus 2 on a team that has certainly given up more goals then we have scored.
