    Mick. He’s been an embarrassment for years.

    7th in the east with just 15 points between Bert and Vrana is amazing.

    Lalonde is a very good coach.

    Lalonde said that Berggren should be back Saturday, along with Raymond, which means two people have to be sent down to GR. Vrana would appear to be a given if he isn’t traded prior to tomorrow, and then I would think it’ll be Osterle or Hagg.

    I really hope Steve makes some moves to clear out roster space at a minimum.

    Why would two need to go to AHL? Berggren already has a roster spot. Raymond coming back requires us to create one roster spot but will take two guys out of lineup. Currently still have 8 D on roster, I'd expect one to get demoted and Vrana likely gets healthy scratched again Saturday with other being Zadina unfortunately. I'd guess him since he was odd man out last time and Lalonde seems to value ST time when making those decisions

    I kind of like how the bottom 6 forward rotation has gone. Players may not like it, but rotating them has seemed to keep the bottom 6 fresh. I'm not sure they are even doing it on purpose, they probably aren't.

    I misspoke because Vrana being sent down to GR rather than sitting in the press box is more beneficial to us if we don’t trade him. It limits the time he accrues on his current recall, but if Raymond and Berggren are both in Saturday yeah we just have one move to make and that’s Vrana to GR.

    John Klingberg has been awful this season, but he’s only on a one year deal. I’d see if I can call in a favor from Verbeek and bring Klingberg in as our 3RD for the rest of the season.

    Would love to see some advanced stats of Lidstrom in his prime.

    If stuff starts going poorly I'm blaming everything on DeToxRox re-entering the country.

    It's probably his fault regardless of his current location

    Free Vrana or find a goal scorer, because these are issues we are going to have for the foreseeable future.

    Bultman mentioned a name I’ve wondered about, and that’s Tanner Jeanott. He isn’t amazing but he’s better than he’s shown this season. More importantly, he’s a true power forward and one thing this team lacks right now is a guy that can keep other teams heads on a swivel. Plus he’s an RFA. I’d give up a third for him and see what happens.

    Isles up and the Sabres have already won today. It’s going to be very hard to keep pace in the East without sweeping these two games from Ottawa.

    Based on the return for Jeanott, I think it would be criminal to not trade Bert at this point.

    Apparently there are reports Washington could move Tom Wilson. I hate the guy but he is under control one more season so the contract isn’t crippling if he can stay healthy (big if). The cost is probably high but I’m in fuck it mode now.

    Came to post that tweet, should have known a tweet about a potential Bertuzzi trade couldn't go 9 minutes without you seeing it

    That goes for any trade tweet but with the current market keeping Bertuzzi without an extension in place is bad asset management.

    That was a terrible period but Hellberg was great. The last penalty was hilariously bad though, so hopefully we can kill it off and then benefit from some game management.

    Refs have been terrible but let’s also acknowledge that the Wings have shit the bed at even strength all night.

    Chiarot should just run Tkachuk so both of them are done for the night. Chiarot is useless.

    While true, the game has been so disjointed we haven't had any run of play to get any rhythm going. Shame to waste such a good Hellberg game.
