I witnessed a few of those Ruel's scrimmages, he sure got the hustle out of his kids. Arguably the best teaching coach ever. Nice to see his name in print, Trini.

I see some of the tribe are willing to give 74 the benefit of the doubt regarding his awful knee injury. Can not the same be said when someone suffers a serious concussion. Consider the above along with the pressure of a kid playing in his contract year and a coach who thinks synchronicity is a town somewhere north of sochi and you just might come to a differing conclusion. Don't think IQ has anything to do with his downslide...none at all.

When Bergevin had that closed door team meeting a few weeks ago with the players, he also had a singular meeting with MT and warned him to get an attitude change quick, that's why he has taken a road less bullish during his game pressers. I'll give him that much... I would also like to see 20 play with 81 along with someone with speed who is strong on the forecheck, maybe 49, but knowing MT I ain't keeping my fingers crossed.

Your really good at this, if I were a gm I'd pay for this kind of off-ice info.

Since the opposition are keying on him(PK) at the blue line why are the four other players on the ice apparently standing at the blue line without any idea of what to do next. - no one covering his tail if the play aborts?!? - nobody moving with speed into the zone with him?!? - it's not preseason, we are 60 games into it, is there not a chalk board behind the bench? Ffs...... Someone mentioned playing Pk as a forward on the pp, which is not a bad idea, but it could be taken a step further. Play him as a rover, allow him to move wherever he wants in the zone and find players that will/can adapt. This is not brain surgery! PRACTICE THAT!!! Honestly, I don't care where they finish in the standings. I worry about 27 already losing a season in junior and losing more valuable time because of MT's inability to see the big picture. Mt is a 1980's method actor, whose time has long since passed him by... And I will remember their shameful treatment of Eller...

At the trade deadline in 2004 the Caps moved Gonchar to Boston for Shaone Morrisonn and the B's 1st (Jeff Shultz) and 2nd (Mikhail Yunkov). If MB decides to deal Markov, hopefully he stays away from the watered down multiple player type trade mentioned above. If the situation was reversed and the Pens were looking to move AM to Mtl the names in the conversation would be 27 or 11. So who out there fits that bill to make moving AM viable?

I like the bigger ice, but 5' wider and 6' longer. Will not happen in our lifetime therefore I propose the league adopt the BMI index. Categories. Goaltenders - 16 - 18.5 bmi = underweight and very skinny. Defense - 30 - 35 bmi = moderatly obese. Forwards - 18.5 - 25 bmi = top shape.
