I want to believe I hope my prediction stays true, squeaks in 6th place first wildcard spot in playoffs.

Isn't 7th the 1st wildcard spot? I think I hope I'm right :mrgreen:

Jensen recalled. Bonino day to day. Burrows unlikely.

So, if Burrows and Bonino can't go next game does Jensen call in? If so, who sits? Kassian or McMillon?

I hope it's McMillon who sits in favour of Jensen. We need a goal scorer not another fourth line plumber.

If Jensen does get in does he play with the twins? Does Vrbata? Or do we keep Kassian there?

I'd be tempted to start Kassian with the twins, have Jensen and Vrbata on the second line with Vey. But that's just me. What does WD do?

Twins need someone who can make space for them and Kass played decent with them last game...

I would try:
Jensen - Vey - Vrbata
Higgins -Mathias - Dorsett
Kenins - Horvat - Hansen

McMillan is an interesting pick up, but I would rather Jensen gets some games in as we need to sort out the "Shrimp Issue' soon...

Anyone else hoping Bonino stays on the sidelines?

He's pretty damn mediocre I'm sad to say...does he have any trade value?

Should have called up Gaunce instead and benched Vey (he's been horrid).

If he benches Kassian tomorrow, I will personally lead the riot. :twisted:

Doubt it. Too much tire-pumpin' for the inevitable 'pump-n-dump' come deadline.

Hope Jensen gets the call though. The McMillan waiver pick-up continues to mystify me.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Hey HDub,

Any idea why they called up Jensen instead of Defazio or O'Reilly? Jensen's numbers are pretty horrible (especially his assist numbers) and the Comets have a nice 9 point cushion at the top of their division.

Because some numbers better transfer to the NHL instead of the Comets.

It seems our coaching/mgm/ crew knows what the fuck the'yre doing...hence Kenins.

I've already done my googling and I know my numbers. You're the one that's disagreeing but you've provided nothing to back up your disagreement other than, hey, it worked with Kenins...

Whats the matter? Can't think for yourself?
