They actually blackout the Express version too?!

He had a poor game. It's gonna be a long season breaking in 2 rookies on the left side, if he isn't solid.

I think it'd be harder to tell with Emelin, some how. He's always seemed a bit 'off', to be honest.

I would've been happy to see Galchenyuk play like this by season's end. I'm pretty shocked it's already there. Why he isn't inserted with Max on the #1 PP is pure MT stubbornness it seems.

Yep. Trying not to comment on the zebras. Been 3 iffy games, but the Habs drew some deserved penalties in there too.

1. I am totally done moaning about Weaver. He's bad with the puck but the last two games he's bailed out his partner(s) endlessly. I've been a dum-dum about him and I was flat out wrong. 2. Eller played a terrific game, good thing MT came to his senses. His stat line is utterly misleading - he was regularly first on the puck and fired at the net a bunch instead of trying to finesse a play. How to use him is still an open question. He wins draws but his game is best suited on the apron and going north-south. That's a winger, plain and simple. 3. Brandon Prust is 4th liner. Period. Needs to play a bit meaner. 4. Unless we're playing the Bruins, an inconsistent Beaulieu is probably better over the long haul than an inconsistent Emelin. The Russian made poor plays on both goals and whether or not the hit shouldn't negated the first goal, the mistakes he made were brutal. Both players are going to cost us games; I'd rather get NB out there. 5. I'm putting a mucker like Weise out there with Desharetty from now on. I kinda feel like Jiri Sekac might be able to do that, but we just don't know right now. Either way we need a guy who can jump on loose pucks and make some sacrifices in traffic on that line. And it can't be #11. 6. Therrien waited until what, 9 minutes left in the game to shift the lines? The 8.5 periods of shaky hockey that proceeded it could've used his attention, at some point before we'd been outscored 6-1 on this roadtrip. His solution worked, so he gets 1/2 a credit for stirring himself and being right. 7. Galchenyuk is surprising & should play centre, it's time and I'm OK if he starts with Gallagher & Bourque. Though Pacioretty'd be better. 8. PK Subban is snakebit from the point. But the forwards down low and in front of him are not helping. His game is offense, but he can't do it all himself and stay defensively in position. 9. Happy to get a split on the road considering #6. It's time to go back to plan A, get Sekec & Bournival in there, and try some stuff in the next 15 games. Not down on the team but when the PP isn't working especially it's time to experiment a bit. Overall the team looks good a lot of the time and brutal at others, hopefully this will shift more towards being consistently good. 10. Tokarski needs a start, put him up against Calgary at home.

Two fourth lines. The man's a genius!! I'm coining this the "Winnipeg Jets" strategy.

Plekanec is now the checking centre with Eller out. So he needed a checking play to complement him. The Canucks have 2 third lines and one forth - this is how MT 'line matches' on the road! One thing is that I have been wanting a tough player to ride around as protection for Galchenyuk. But Moen? I hope not.

MT is so soff, he once had a captain crying in his arms.

Therrien hates soff Europeans? I dunno Max, there just is no explanation.
