    Just one of those games. It wasn't for lack of effort, but the passing was in the skates or getting swatted away easily. Shots were going wide or hitting skates in front. Just a little lack of execution and puck luck. Have to give Fleury credit too, he played a solid game, and all the bad rebounds he gave up were quickly swatted away by the defense. Their defense was also good at taking away Montreal's transition game, they really didn't allow them to get their speed going at all, and the Habs didn't help themselves with missed passes either. All in all I'm not too worried because the effort was there. They'll get a good practice in and be ready for the Blues. _______________________________________________________ "It’s sad when our rookies have no NHL experience before they jump up to the NHL." - nunacanadien

    Which part am I wrong about? because you clearly have all the answers and are a climatologist. And FYI I did study climate science, and I understand the subject of geology quite well thank you. _______________________________________________________ "It’s sad when our rookies have no NHL experience before they jump up to the NHL." - nunacanadien

    Warming of the earth is cyclical, there have been phases throughout geological time where CO2 levels were much greater than the are now, and it usually coincides with a temperature rise. CO2, while not the most harmful greenhouse gas creates a positive feedback effect, where other important greenhouse gases get emitted into the atmosphere such as H2O and CH4. Is the warming due to human industrialization, maybe, was it going to happen anyway, you betcha. _______________________________________________________ "It’s sad when our rookies have no NHL experience before they jump up to the NHL." - nunacanadien

    True enough, and there are players where the puck is off their stick as quickly as it get's on their stick, but in terms of waiting for microchip technology, I don't even think it is necessary. With video replay, although tedious, teams could employ people to literally rewatch the whole game and track these shifts of possession. I mean, I really don't think that teams put all that much stock into the analytics movement, but if they were really serious about it, why not just employ someone to rewatch the game and track time of possession. It seems a more accurate measurement than shots and shot attempts. _______________________________________________________ "It’s sad when our rookies have no NHL experience before they jump up to the NHL." - nunacanadien

    Something that really annoys me about analytics is that they use shots and shot attempts to calculate possession, with all the stink that's surrounding the so called "advanced stats" why don't they just employ someone with a stopwatch to actually record the time of possession. They would even be able to take it a step further and track possession numbers through all 3 zones. I would think that this would be a much more efficient way of getting true possession numbers. _______________________________________________________ "It’s sad when our rookies have no NHL experience before they jump up to the NHL." - nunacanadien

    Seemed like a clean check to me. What I don't understand though is when players want to fight after a clean check like that. Even PK challenging Lucic after a pretty innocent bodycheck (innocent even by Lucic standards) on Sekac, which he got up from right away, was pretty dumb IMO. _______________________________________________________ "It’s sad when our rookies have no NHL experience before they jump up to the NHL." - nunacanadien

    I've only seen him play a few times, and only once live in the Subway series (Russia vs. CHL), but what I was most impressed with was his ability to anticipate and break up plays. I remember he created 5 or 6 turnovers vs. Russia at the blueline that resulted in great scoring opportunities. _______________________________________________________ "It’s sad when our rookies have no NHL experience before they jump up to the NHL." - nunacanadien
