Rookie / Recrue

Rookie / Recrue (2/6)



  1. Jets need help on PP desperately right now. MAybe MB should send a call...
  2. Welcome back Michael. Good move in short term from both on ice and business perspective. Always liked Ryder too. He should have fun playing with Pleky or any of other centres. Not that sorry to see Cole leave. I didn't like his attitude throughout and after the lockout and unlike some of the fans I don't feel excusing his chronic pattern of being a slow starter to every season is valid. This is especially a concern in this shortened season when we need everyone delivering NOW. It is also hypocritical I think to give Cole a free pass while critcising other players for slow starts or periodic slumps when the guy never got going at all this year.
  3. My concern about DD is that his success is linked to that of his wingers moreso than other top 6 centres. He is a hard worker and surprisingly effective along the boards against bigger players. He also draws penalties with his speed and tenacity. The problem is when his wingers are on vacation his production is going to stall since he isn't big enough to create or force a play the way his full size contemporaries can. This has ben very evident until the last 2 games. Long term I am not convinced he is the right choice. PAtches is here for a long time but Cole is only around for 2 more years and we aren't winning the Cup in 2 years. I think if DD hits another slump then Eller deserves a shot at centering this line. Unless that move is tried we don't know if it can be better than what happened last year.
  4. Was sweet. Prust let up on Ott toward the end.
  5. Was great that he got our goal, especially given the urgency at the time. Unlike Gomez, Gio had a good reason why he hadn't scored in a calendar year.
  6. I guess Cole did hang them up. He sure played like he had just come out of retirement.
  7. I was very impressed with his performance. Skated hard. Won his fight. He handled poor passes along the sidewalls well and used the body very effectively to protect the puck to subsequently attempt a pass. Didn't expect that out of a grinder like him. If he had a little more offensive instinct he could probably increase his point production 15 over an entire season. Can't wait to see how he changes the game dynamics against Boston and Philly.
  8. Our version of Scott Stevens. Loved the hits he dished out on Girlybovski and Kadri
  9. Agreed, we should be fair to him and judge him for what he is now, not what he used to be in TO. He can move the puck well up ice and in the offensive zone. I wish he would shoot a little bit more on the PP. With his vision he can place shots to create rebounds or into screens. These type of shots don't have to be hard to be effective. This would throw off the PK wingers who otherwise know to target Markov's shots on the PP. He better start holding the line better at their blueline though. Only some of the pucks that came out were from a bad pass, like the on from Patches
  10. Marchand must have perfected diving and rolling on the ice with all of this time off to practise.
  11. That is so delusional it is hilarious. They should keep him for at least a month. Schneider might somehow flop or more likely, get injured.
  12. Give the Leafs 3 weeks to flounder and have lousy goaltending, then he will pull the trigger.
  13. Wait, he is going to prove Brian Burke really DID want him in the first round, not that Brayden Schenn loser
  14. There will be no negativity in this fan blog
  15. Prust's career numbers show he will be a 3rd to 4th liner but with decent +/- considering that role. He will fight and give physical presence along with Moen. White and Cube as little guys will fight. Now we have 4 guys willing to get their nose punched in order to stick up for a teammate. Laroque was an epic fail because he could only fight and he refused to do so. He wouldn't even hit or lean on guys to intimidate them and they knew he wouldn't fight them since they were below his weight class. Prust looks like he can at least play an acceptable game considering his limited skill set.
