Where was Cody last year at this time? That's where Zack is right now, except Zacks actually playing in the NHL. Next year we can properly compare the development curve since Cody is one year older.

I think Zack needs a dose of confidence to find his way. He's not hurting the team and I really do think it's just around the corner.

I mean, we can all go on and on and on and on about tough guys, fighters, mean, big, tough, angry, irate, irritable, ornery, miserable etc, blah, etc, blah, blah, wtf'ever the bottom line, our two guys down the middle on our top two lines are what only matters in the end. If they ain't going, you can all forgetaboutit Lord Stanley.


For once, you are correct. If Sedin or Kesler go down, we're hosed. Nobody on, or formerly on, our roster would change that fact.

Go down as in getting injured? Fuck dat, I am talking about the two of them playing at their best in which they ain't. I mean Hank, 2 goals in his last 32 games, sheee-ite. Kesler? A little over half the goals he scored last year? Where is the Kesler beast from last season?

but, duh, I thought we are aiming to win the Stanley Cup now, isn't that the old adage "One Step Forward, Two Steps Back"?

Oh, I'm sorry that is what the deft scoring touch hands of Sami Pahlsson was for. I got a new name for Sami, no longer I will refer to him as The Shut Down Specialist from now on he is Mr. Stop Gap.

Don't you know they are saving it for the playoffs?

Who knows what to expect from the team this year, I will say thatI prefered what I saw last season compared to this one.

It's amazing how down everyone seems when we're 2 points out of 1st overall. Yeah, it's about the Cup - but are we really that jaded over the Presidents trophy after winning one?

Just start the damned layoffs, OK??

Gassian does look lost out there. But I think with a summer of rigorous conditioning training there's much to expect next season from him. If the oh-prodigal-39 point-slow footed Hodgson was able to "almost" keep himself up with the team pace after two summers of work out program, I don't see any reason why the more naturally athletic Kassian won't be able to do.

On a side note, it'd be hilarious to see if the Sabres ride on a hot Miller all the way to the Cup Final and their saviour Hodgson scoring all clutching goals (unlikely)

But hey, despite Sedins and Kesler's slumps we are still one of the top teams in the league (minus the saviour Hodgson too!) What would happen if our players start producing?

lastly, Raymond still needs to go. He's accomplished plenty already in his career. He was never expected to make it here anyway.

I acutally would of liked to seen Colorodo win tonite. I would much rather play the Avs in first round rather than one of those Cali teams in Kings, Ducks, Sharks. The Avs need a lil bit of help right now, so I was hoping the Nucks would pull Lou for an empty net in OT. *LOL*

Then Raymond has a clear look at the net on a setup from Hamhuis (who recovered the puck quickly and made a nice play), but MayRay puts it STRAIGHT INTO VARLAMOV. At least make him reach for it. I'm actually happier when he misses the net because at least the goalie had to move to make the save.

Can we bench #21 yet?


Too bad we didn't trade him for some more Meat and Potatoes like a Matt Stajan or a Jay McLement type, ya know, Daryl Sutter shut down type hockey, we could use more of that, cause offensive creativity we got loads of.


Are you actually about to say that Raymond brings offensive creativity to this lineup?

I suppose ripping up the wing and button hooking before dumping the puck to the corner, or wiring a shot at the goalie's chest 99% of the time, or getting knocked on one's ass after trying to make a play, is all marks of offensive creativity.

Would hate to see him get more tuning like the tuning he got from Staubitz a couple weeks back. The kid ain't no Lucic, so people need to lower them expectations. That being said, I agree with Island Nucklehead, fighting wins you hockey games, it's the most important part of your team.


I think your definition of "tuning" differs greatly from many other people's definition..... :wink:

I'm pretty sure he also said he (Barrie) was 17 years old. :look:
