looks reasonable.. will a couple of kids make it ? MT will juggle lines in first few games! maybe last few games too! seems to work for him.

Lineup seems to be coming together. Hoping the additions fit in well and we will see what rookie or rookies might push onto the team. Do we need a heavy weight enforcer? would be nice to have a guy on the shelf and ready when playing the teams that employ one I think.

i believe if the player has control of the puck, his skates can enter the zone first.. so seems, good goal. Wings a good team and were coming at us to get back in it.

yes, thanks... RE: $ .. we have more money to spend so that is a good thing. Don't see Melynk having any succes with that team unless he or a partner decide to spend some money. Ceci does look like the real deal. I don't watch them much so don't know much about weircoch and Gyrba?? will get a better look Friday night.. hopefully with our guys blowing past them !)) I dislike much of the attitude of announcers, fans and media so don't watch much unless the Habs are playing them. appreciate your thoughts and your general dislike of them ! ha!

I normally agree with your posts CJ, but I would take our D group ahead of sens. The standings and the numbers give our D the edge, however I recognise out goaltending is superior this year. I think Karlson is very poor defencively and plays too many minutes and teams have learned to exploit his side defencively. They will never win with him as the lead D man. Our top 4 of PK, Markov, Gorges, Emelin.. I believe are superior to their top 4. IMO Our 5 /6 guys compare well to theirs and our 3 or 4 guys in the AHL are going to be better than Cowan / Ceci IMO
