I wonder if Booth will become the new whipping boy for AV, at least until Ballard gets back. I think the best Booth played was when he was on a line with Kesler and Higgins. I'd like to see that line back which means, I know Raymond has to drop back to the third line, Unless you want to switch him and Burrows for a bit and see what happens.

I just don't see the team playing well right now. We do have a relatively easy finish to the season and should rack up some points, well after Thursday game anyway.

You think Ginger had a sloppy game?

I think he had sloppy moments, two major stickhandling gaffs and a bad rebound on the tying goal, but collectively, I think the Canucks threw him to the wolves. I think he was our best player on the ice.

Donny, are you in the hospital or laid up with a pair of broken legs by chance?

I only ask because you have 56 posts in that "one freaking day".....

:P


:(

I can stop.


No. No.

Don't stop, I want to see if you can top Klatt's record for number of posts in one day. (The guy was a demon on trade deadline day back on CC)

It will help a lot that he's back on the power play.

Pretty tough to put up good looking point totals with 2nd, 3rd, line even strength ice and almost no power play time.

Folks sometime forget stuff like that when they are looking for a player to vent their frustrations on.

To be honest I have been mostly OK with Raymonds year. He played well when he first got back, then stunk for a good month, but he's been fairly solid since.

That was a very serious injury if anything I was expecting less this season.

Just for the record, I'm glad that Raymond is still here, and I like what the kid brings to the table. He's a very versatile player and he will come in handy in the post-season.

I did think he was going to be gone on deadline day because I did (erroneously, apparently) think of him as our most appealing asset for GMMG to move. Wrong!

I was just wondering what's with the banana peels is all. :drink:

Listercat wrote:HW I disagree with your assessment of the Kesler line. With Higgins, Booth and Kes You have 3 grinding type players who are not particularly good playmakers. They are all pretty much north - south players with little finesse. Raymond can add that dimension although last night was not one of his better efforts in that regard. His critics slam him for not doing things that were never part of his game and never will be. His game is speed, passing and puck control and when he is on he is very good at it. Lately he seems to be trying to do too much to get that line going.

I liked the play of Kassian on the line with Kedler and Raymond. I think AV is experimenting to see how the various part can be interchanged. As others have said hopefully Pahlsson can take some of the "checking" pressure off Kesler and allow that line to press offensively. He still seems to have decent speed and certainly has the intelligence for his role.


Finally, someone with a little insight, for sight or just plain seeing the light. I'm surprised that everyone wants to just throw the exact same type of players on the same line, I mean, what fucking good is that? I really like the potential of a Kesler, Kassian, Raymond line, you saw a little bit of that last night. 3 different players who when together have all the elements of what you want in a line, not just the one dimensional combination of Booth, Higgins and Kesler.

One thing I will say about Raymond - and I will happily cut him a mile of slack given his back injury and even given his injuries during the regular season last year - is that in 09-10 he did take the puck to the front of the net, or go there looking for opportunities, with far more consistency than he has since.

I know what type of player Mason is and if he tops out at this point that's fine, but he has all the ability to get back to being a consistent offensive threat, just maybe not the demeanour or durability.
