This instance to play guys like Dandenault will be the doom of this team. I'm slightly exaggerating, but for the life of me I don't understand why a guy like Dandenault is playing over a guy like Chipchura or even Max Pac...both who are clearly superior to him.

Mike, you're quite the wordsmith!

Hossa injured? Halak it. Halak it a lot. :)

- Comment on One man’s view: Koivu for Jokinen (2008-02-23 08:43:36)
Well, let's be realistic here. Why would Koivu wave his NTC to play in Florida of all places. This trade doesn't make any sense.
- Comment on Price in goal, Kovalev on the bubble (2008-02-15 17:51:53)
I wouldn't call the Souray fiasco an epic blunder, far from it actually. Look at it this way, perhaps we could have gotten a decent return from him, perhaps not, but that's hindsight for you. What I do know is that in not spending 5.25 million to get Souray, we managed to spend that money to get Hamrlik, a much better upgrade over Souray. Due to this being the salary cap era now, you cannot omit its importance in today's NHL. Sometimes it's better to let players test free agency and potentially lose them when one aspires to make a run for the playoffs. Especially now with the parity in the league, you'll find this scenario happen much more often. Moreover, Gainey would be stupid to trade his number 1 goalie, especially when we have a good chance at making the playoffs; nobody does that. Rushing players and putting them in these types of situation can bite you in the ass in the future. Look at Carolina, they gambled by trading Gerber and having Ward be their #1 goalie; Ward has been mediocre ever since. Goalies take time to develop, and Price is no different. I personally don't want to lose Huet in free agency, but if we do, at least that will give us a good extra 4 million in cap space.

There you have it Boone, your wish is finally granted: Price stole a game for us.

IMO, criticism towards Lapierre is definitely warranted. The guy doesn't have much offensive skills, doesn't have great vision, and can even sometimes be a defensive liability in our own zone (which is surprising for someone who's good on the PK). IMO he's a 4th line grinder at best. He's supposed to be an energy guy, but he's not even the guy bringing the most energy on that line...that honour goes to Sergei. Mike brought up a good point...Sergei and Latendresse need to playw ith someone with more creativity. hey, guess what..we have such a guy in the farm, and his name is Kyle Chipchura.

- Comment on The remarkable rebirth of Alex Kovalev (2008-02-09 11:54:43)
Kovalev is awesome. Regardless of his perceived performances in the past, I hardly think anyone can refute the fact that he has emerged as a true leader of this team this season.
