I don't get it....
I figured you would love to add a tough bottom6 type that seems able to play.
Won a fight, made some hits, got some points, whats the problem?

They were sloppy still, but better and against a good team. They still need to tighten it up a lot, but it's a decent 2 pts to grab on the road.

=D , true 'nough.
Nice shootout win for the 'nucks. Kinda feels like another non-deserved yet won game, though. But I'm actually waiting for a Meds recap; you, dude, are an eloquent and insightful connoisseur of the game. I've look forward to your summaries when you make them.
But as for gassed... how old are you/how much experience do you have with "gassed" people? Physical exertion increases capillary dilation (redness in the face) but extraordinary exertion channels oxygenated blood flow to muscles and leaves the face (in primates, especially humans) devoid of enervation. Slightly different than the bar code "if they're red, leave em alone*. If they're pale, kill/pressure them, or you're going to regret not taking drastic actions and successfully fuck you up."

When the officiating lets as many go as they did tonight after the Canucks score go 1-for-1 on the PP, particularly in the latter half of the final period, you can't help but think they are trying to give the Preds at least a single point and then a chance in the shootout. Tonight Luongo went up against Rinne in the shootout and walked away with the extra point, and he earned it. Rinne needed 2 posts to extend it, and on both of those shots he was beaten badly. Tonight really seemed to indicate that Luongo has been working on shootout reads. He stayed up longer, he only looked bad on the one that beat him, and even there I think alot of that has to do with the fact that he's just not as good a skater as many other goalies and he couldn't recover after commiting to his right. Oh well. We won.
Bitz was solid. If he can consistently bring what he has been bringing, I would LOVE to see what he would look like on CoHo's wing once Higgins is back and healthy. Hodgson would probably have a field day with a guy like Bitz making space and filling the front of the net instead of having to hit a perimeter guy like Raymond and deal with Hansen's game-day hands of stone.
I won't be surprised to see Raymond on the move on, or before, the deadline. Of all our forwards I think he is the most movable. He's fast and he could be the guy that some GM looks at and sees a 25+ goal scorer in a different system. I wonder what a package of Raymond, Malhotra, and Rome would bring back if we threw in a decent player from the Wolves. A #4 dman maybe? I'm really not sure. We need a bigger, meaner, and more versatile guy on the blueline. Alberts and Rome just have too many drawbacks. Rome is slow and makes terrible decisions with the puck. Alberts is slow and not very mobile. Neither of them are someone that opposing forwards are going to be intimidated by after running one of our goalies. Also both are useless on the point.
