last week when he woke the team up running over Bishop the week before that when he fought the same guy twice, sticking up for his teammates. points in the Florida , Carolina games to secure points. Prust is a big part of team and will be a bigger part in playoffs we went to semis last year with a team not as tough as this one. we will be fine in that category

agree somewhat that it is coaching, however the players on the ice are the Pros with lots of experience and they aren't putting the puck in the net. I'm hoping when it matters in the playoffs that our top players are able to get pucks in the net ! I think they will !!

yes, agree.. posted it last night. a young kid and with his style, and use to playing all the time in Junior , etc... yes, seems backup is not his thing. played very well last years against rangers going every other night. maybe he could be the starter in AHL next year? and MB finds a older guy nore suitable to the role....

yes. I expect this is when them and the ahl goalie go back to playing like themselves. Kinda wondering it the Panthers might step past both of them?!

bigger and tougher yet than last year when we went to the east finals. No issues there anymore, that was couple years back. old news.

Kinda think Toker is a guy that has to play regularily. Played well against Rangers in playoffs going every other night. Maybe a year in the AHL next year being number 1 goalie and a older backup in his place.

yes . thats what I was referring to , was jumping websites.... the structure is a good thing and I think the payers certainly buy into the MT system

I like what the Boys are saying ! Gallager and Patch. I think the seaosn is a long one and there has been nights that they didnt look hungry with a playoff spot wrapped up. We were at the last game in Ottawa and the Habs didn't look very desparate. So , yup seeing that now and 8 games to tune up ! Bring on the Playoffs !

I think DSP is built for playoff hockey and a big , hitting winger would have been handy in the Ranger series last year and the Ottawa series 2 years ago. I think that is what MB was looking for and we are going to find out over the next few months how that works. I think we will be happy !

Shea Weber Karlson to poor defencively and he got one Norris that wasn't too popular with the general fan base... writers voting is an issue.
