Of course Howard is playing out of his mind
Can we send Hirose to Grand Rapids now.
Such a frustrating game
I am sure we will win this in OT.
Hirose is fun to watch - despite everyone's collective desire to lose out, I loved last nights game. It was great to see Mantha bounce back from an awful giveaway to get the next PP goal almost immediately and then win the game. He's quietly about to hit 20 goals and is just over .5P/G
He should be a 30-30 guy for the next 10 years. He's better than just 20 goals, even on a bottom 5 team.
As long as he quits trying to punch people and breaking his hand.
I know some of those words.
Fuck off. Stop winning.
2nd - 4th from bottom is in play it seems
Ottawa is out reach in last.
Not the best time to win two road games out West against playoff teams.
If we take both from Buffalo, we are in trouble there.
Ultimately, we are trying to tank. I mean McIllrath and Witowski played last night. We are being outshot every game. We are just getting good goaltending and our young skilled guys are playing well. I think it’ll crash down to Earth though.
We continue to put out a mostly AHL roster but Buffalo is just such an embarrassment, it doesn’t matter.
I’m very annoyed that Mantha has picked now of all times to go on a heater.
We are for sure beating the Devils tomorrow.
What seemed improbable is becoming likely: we will finish sixth in the lottery, likely dropping to 7 at a minimum.
Witowski is such a plug. Get him to the ECHL.
At least we finally have a thirty goal scorer.
Just like the fucking pistons. Winning meaningless games when season is over to fuck their draft position.
The only good thing is there is zero consensus 3-10, but all those guys are really good players. It isn’t like 2017. That really fucked us.
I guess we should just accept the fact we are not getting top 2 anymore.
It’s more disconcerting that Buffalo could.
At least Buffalo got a point
Chelios kid is playing tonight and we will still win.
Larsson blanked the Buckeyes in DU’s first tournament game. He’s likely getting a crack at the top team in the country, St. Cloud State, next.
Yeah we are definitely finishing 6th from the bottom. Such is life. At least it isn’t because of guys like Helm.
Two year extension for Blash. It’s what I expected. My guess is Yzerman comes in as an advisor to Illitch. If Steve gets the bug, he will get a bigger role in 2020, at which point he can decide Blashill’s future.
We are going to win out.
Hatty for Mantha
Fuck. I thought we lost.
This isn't good for lottery odds, but damn this is fun to watch.
It’s basically four players winning us these games. Thank god it’s our four most important players.
Have a hard time getting mad. These guys developing and playing like this in the long run is a good thing even if it costs us a couple draft spots. I'd be pissed if like vanek got hot and we were doing this. But it is all our young guys
I mean if it ends up costing us Hughes/Kakko then no, a 10 game surge is not worth it.
I'm not talking about the wins, I'm talking about how our young forwards have all started to develop and taken another step forward.
I’m mostly annoyed by Mantha. Do this shit all year long.
I think being healthy, and stability on a line with Larkin and Bert has really helped. Those three look great together. If we could get even 2nd pick and throw kakko and zadina on either side of AA and maybe see if a Veleno line with hirose and Ras could get going and we could have something. Although I think Veleno will be in GR next year. Maybe Svech can play
We need a 2C so badly. If we could find someone to play between AA and Zadina next year, we could have two very good scoring lines.
Speaking of which Veleno is leading the Q in goals in the playoffs with 5 in 5 games (plus 4 assists), his team won their first series in 5 and await the others to finish up.
My worry right now is if we sign Duchene in FA. I was all about it a few months back, but now I’m leery of giving him seven years. In the short term, he would be fantastic as our 2C though. Veleno is making me a believer though, so I am not sure to would want to sign a 28 year old to a big deal with him in the wings.
Agreed. Use that money to improve the D. (Trouba since Winnipeg doesn't have the cap space for him).
Theoretically we could do both. It gets tricky with our RFA next summer but we do have a lot coming off of the books.
Mantha with a 5 point night
Karlsson. D needs so much improvement.
A guy can dream.
12 points his last five games. Only two points the rest of March. It drives me insane.
We have basically been fire since Abdelkader went down for the year, which tells me two things:
1. Abby has the worst non Lucic deal in the league
2. Blashill is an idiot for playing him as much as he did (especially in the top six)
