  1. They kind of do, but no one is among the top 40. I think Konecny is barely in the top 50 and Giroux is barely in the top 100 in terms of points. Couturier and Voracek are a little higher than Giroux. I am concerned that Giroux and Voracek don’t seem to be producing as they have in years past. Honestly, I feel like Giroux has been a bit MIA this year. He seems to have regressed. Same with Voracek. The hope was that those guys would remain at or above the same level in recent years past and for the younger guys and Hayes to rise up. Instead, Konecny and Lindblom rose, but the vets have slid in terms of production. Bit unfortunate.
  2. Been very busy with work for the past few months and haven't been posting much. But from the games I've seen, particularly recently, this team has been a lot of fun to watch. It's nice to root for the team rather than sitting there shaking my head with a sense of dread that things are about to fall apart. Also, very nice to see them reel off four wins in a row after three losses. They don't seem to get mired in the losses. They've played fairly consistent hockey. They haven't lost more than 3 games in a row and have had a 5 game win streak and two 4 game win streaks. Coaching and goaltending go a long way. Have to say, all of Fletcher's moves this offseason have paid off. Even Elliott.
  3. Lol. Sounds like it's up Neuvirth's alley as well.
  4. Really sucks for Morin. Kid should move on to another role in hockey. I bet the Flyers will find something for him.
  5. Kind of noticed that as well, at least in the last couple. Part of it may have to do with his linemates and/or role. Still think Hayes is contributing in other ways. have zero problem with him to daye. Less concerned about Voracek than Ghost. Ghost hasn't responded to anything the past couple of years. And Voracek has largely been the same player over that time as well. We will see. Not so sure about that either. A few teams have demonstrated recently (Carolina, NYI) that success can be achieved by executing a system well and playing as a team. When a player freelances or breaks the system, stuff starts to fall apart. Besides, you'd think one place he'd excel "by being Ghost" is on the PP. But yet he's not been good there either. I wouldn't change my system or gameplan drastically to support Ghost.
  6. Might work for some! The coach/player relationship has changed dramatically. Players have so much power nowadays and are told how great they are that they can probably demand naps and pudding cups and get them.
  7. This is my concern as well. Or maybe they lose confidence when coaches criticize or try to change their games. Or maybe they just don't want to listen.
  8. Next game I watch, I'm going to try to track it. It was very noticeable in the Devils game. Felt guys from both teams were getting tossed regularly, but Hayes was the most frequent offender.
  9. Tend to agree, but different people respond better to different tactics. And some people don't respond at all, regardless of the tactic. I'm not criticizing the staff, as I think this team generally needs the "whip" until it earns the staff's trust. So, at this point, I tend to agree that those that don't respond are probably better off parting ways. Besides, this group has had a variety of coaches and styles over the years and they haven't done much under any of them.
  10. Wonder what the coach/player dynamic is like inside the locker room these days. Vigneault has not been shy about challenging players publicly and adjusting TOI accordingly. I love his approach. You know Therrien is being hard (probably borderline abusive) on some of the players. Not sure what Yeo's style is, but you've seen him be (embarrassingly) passionate at practice. Wonder how all this is sitting with the players, particularly Messrs. Voracek and Gostisbehere. Voracek looks completely lost, moreso than usual. Ghost has been bad, though I thought he started OK. I don't think Voracek or Ghost respond well to the whip. At what point do things get beyond repair between the staff and those two players? Honestly, I can see Jake and Ghost basically shutting down rather than rising up. Their days are likely numbered. On another note, is anyone aware of a site that tracks the number of times a player is tossed from the FO circle? I swear Hayes was tossed from more FOs than he took in the NJ game. Aside from that, I love what Hayes brings to the team.
  11. Well, he's relegated Voracek to fourth line duty at times. Others might find their way there or to press box. I don't think AV will make empty threats. Doesn't strike me as the type and the sense I get is that Fletcher has his back. Except for Hayes, Fletcher has little history with these players.
  12. At least the quotes have become angry. Last year they would have been talking about moral victories and BS. The lip service has improved. Let's see if the game does. Vigneault had some choice words, implying that guys who don't play the right way might lose their spots (it was in Carchidi's column, but I can't access it at work). Would be nice if **** starts hitting the fan. Kind of had it with the BS.
  13. Of the games I saw before the Isles game, I didn't think Ghost was that bad. Better than he was last year. But, that Morin/Ghost pairing was real bad vs. the Isles. Looking for a 4-3 OT win tonight.
  14. Tried to, but cut himself signing his retirement papers. Out 4-6 months with a UBI.
