Cody earns every bit of criticism he gets from me, as do the other players I complain about and I have no problem defending my position in rebuttal.

Cody has also earned every bit of praise he has gotten from me.

Yes, on the fourth line wing, Ebbett is a better option than Cody.


So if Cody goes to Chicago who plays in the top 9


With no Cody and Ebbett on the 4th line we have;

Sedins / Burrows
Booth / Kesler / ???
Higg / Manny / Hansen
Ebbett / Lappy / Weise
Volpatti

If Ebbet is the 4th line wing who replaces Hodgson in the top 9.

Please post a line up.

I think it's time Topper was "sent down" he has "hit the skids".

Based upon what AV has had recently

Sedins Hansen
Higgins-Kesler-Burrows

was the top 9 he started with last night.

Nice try ducking the question.

I didn't say who was in the top6, I said "who is in the top9 if Ebbett is on the 4th line and Cody is sent down".

Post your top 12 so we can all continue laughing at your ridiculous position here.

PS. I don't see any personnel attacks here but in all honesty if I were doing this poorly in a debate I might ask the mods for help too. Perhaps you should PM Brian (smile)

Well, obviously the premise of the argument is opposite - that's what makes it dissimilar...

I agree with the coaching decision to limit Ballard's icetime, whereas Topper is disagreeing with the coaching decision to give Hodgson icetime.

Pot, Topper - get a room thread already. ;)

On the more general topic of the game that was last night, it was curious to hear Henrik in his post game suggest they played pretty well (though I think he was comparing it to the Minnesota "effort"). This reminded me of when he said the same thing last November after they lost to Phoenix 3-2 the day after the 7-1 Chicago massacre. One of those "good effort" losses where you know you're ready to break through the funk.

Though we should likely take his words as a good sign, I just don't have the same read on the team this year. I still say it's too early to worry, but the structure, discipline and chemistry just aren't there. And unlike last year when they were struggling, those glimpses of brilliance and dominance aren't as obvious to me right now.

BTW - 5 points behind last year's pace....doesn't sound too bad considering how the season ended, but can we really count on a 11-1-2 December like last year?

Not panicking since the skill is there, but really wanting them to kick it up a notch already!

or maybe the twins pitiful checking in the SCF? They continue to lose the puck on offence and are lousy on the backcheck..
The only hope of a finals appearance by this years team rests on the Kesler/Booth line..I am giving them both a little slack. Kesler coming off injury and Booth too new to evaluate .

I thought I'd give you yet another chance to play your strawman game.

Booth-Lappy-Weise
Ebbett-Manny/Cody-Volpatti

Cody on the wing has been dismal. The one problem I see with sitting Manny to recover is we loose a a PK centre. Not surprisingly, Cody is is the one player in the line up whose skates have not touched the ice in a PK situation.

This highlights the injury loss of your second round draft pick.
