He was Tampa's leading scorer...that kind of matters...his 59 points was one less than Pacioretty.

Good news in his faceoffs are 200 ft from the Habs net. Teh big faceoffs are the shorthanded ones or faceoffs following an icing. Dd does;t take many of those so it isn't as important....he played well.

I thought Glen Healy made some valid points last night about Lindback and his tendencies to be on his knees so much. If they can move the puck more they should be able to take advantage. After he showed that I watched and it was super noticeable...any time the puck is beind the net, or even in the corner he goes onto his knees and has no mobility. If they can get a pass out and go far side it should lead to some chances. The Hbas were doing a lot of 2 man forechecking and running that triangle type offense off of it and if they have the first forecheker go to the back door or out into the far side of the slot they could generate some tap ins it appears. I know it is easier said than done as the dman will likely have tried to staple our player to the glass but anytime it can be rolled off or avoided and someone can get out there it would really help. There must have been 8 instances of Habs winning the puck down low and attacking from Lindbakcs left and walking out from behind the goal line....if the forward who was in the other corner can bust it out into a position where he can be passed to? look out!!

So is it the Marcarena? the boot scootin' Bergie? genman style? is there a consensus on what to call his dance?

7 mins left with a one goal lead in the palyoffs and on the road...horrible decision and he knew it.

Convoluded...so many stats I was looking at but soooo many of them are useless. I cruised around those sites for a couple of hours in the afternoon but they are just a fancy way of sorting out events that are already noted. I still think my eyes are the best gauge for me regarding the Habs but I guess when looking at players around the league I don't see as much they do provide some insight. It was easy to find flaws with the Habs stats from knowing them so well but there appears to be some use if you are using them to look at other players...I can see where it would help scouting a player. Don't get me wrong you would absolutely have to look at the player and watch them...but it could allow you to target someone. On the other hand....if you know you have an outlier whose paly contradicts what the numbers tell you (ie. Emmelin and Weaver last night) then maybe you use them to your advantage. The stats will never be as useful as baseball.....but it is at least interesting. The people who think they are the be all end all and use them to evaluate a player without consideration of other facts IMO are doing so with no real basis....the stats I found were not detalied enough to really say much. Interesting and sites I bookmarked and will refer to....but again...I wathced that Sloan conference again this year and after scouring those sites...fun to have more detail and a place that has all that...but much, much prefer waht I see.

It looked to me like he has an 11 foot tall imaginary mistress!

I think he should have stopped that myself...I think perhaps he was surprised at the velocity of it bolstered by the speed Stamkos was flyting at ...but from that angle...there should be no opening there..you can bet he would like to have that one back.
