Greetings:

 

There is no line on this game at present, but the Stars defense is certainly better than ours:

Well at least they're playing all the time so one can't avoid seeing them "perform" at their current level.

 

The hockey gods must be displeased.

Man, I hope we don't get screwed out of a top pick. Last overall means you have the best chance to land #4 overall more than any other pick.

 

50.6%.

I mean, I don't want to point out that having our prized $35M free agent signing on the 4th line is midboggling...

 

But... seriously? Wow. How far he has fallen in 4 months. He's probably wrapped up in his Leafs blanky at night, crying himself to sleep.

He's wrapped up in the $8 million of cash he's stealing from this team.

 

Love that Gordon is relegating him to the 4th line.  Gordon doesn't need to worry about stuff like that.

 

On the bright side, it gives the team an opportunity to look at Lindblom in the top 6 and to showcase Raffl for a trade.  Honestly, Lindblom may be trade bait as well.

I just posted another thread on Simmonds. If I were GM, Simmonds gets resigned, JVR is traded...if we could.  His underperformance relative to last year in Toronto speaks volumes to our team's weakness.  JVR needs feeders and dirty shot efforts. He isn't getting that with our current staff.

I agree, but unfortunately, it probably won't happen because of the stubborn same ol' mentality the Disorganization has. They get the same level of production from Simmonds, at half the salary. Resign Wayne to a 1 or 2 year deal AT MOST and trade JVR, coming off of that 38 goal year, before people realize it was moreso his linemates in Toronto getting him the puck than Van Reimsdylk himself.

I honestly wish he didn`t. JVR needs to be traded this year imo. Every game he spends on the 4th is a game where his value will continue to plummet. He may still be tradeable right now given how the whole team is garbage, but I'd honestly rather they pop him on the 2nd and keep him there, let him get some points at least, and then shop him at the deadline.

Fair points.  But I kind of doubt they are going to be successful in moving JVR given his contract in any event.  I also think they expect to trade Simmonds and slot JVR in his place once he's gone.  Not sure they would seek to move both of them.  Although, JVR was a Hextall signing and Fletcher has no loyalty there.

Dallas has won 3 of their last 4, but isn't a great road club.  Apparently, we face Anton Khudobin, whose numbers are fairly good.  

 

Who knows what to expect from the O and B?

Carchidi reporting that G is back at center with JVR and Konecny as his wingers.  Couturier centering Lindblom and Voracek.  Lines as follows:

 

JVR/Giroux/Konecny

Lindblom/Couturier/Voracek

Laughton/Patrick/Simmonds

Raffl/Varone/Weise

 

JVR also said this:

 

Quote

Van Riemsdyk said he doesn’t put added pressure on himself because he signed a hefty free-agent contract, $35 million over five years, in the offseason.

“To be honest, that hasn’t affected me at all,” he said. “Obviously, that aspect has never been my motivation to play this game.” The money “hasn’t changed how much effort I’ve put in. I want to be the best player I can be. ... When you sign a bigger contract, that comes with some different sort of things. But as a player, you try to do the things you did to earn that contract and the rest is out of your control.”

That's unfortunate.  I thought he would put even more pressure on himself to actually earn that salary. 

 

(This is [mostly] tongue-in-cheek.)

Why....he already got paid. Him and Vorachek seem to be taking turns skating for a couple of shifts a game. The rest as often as not they just float around hoping somebody else on their line feeds them.

Wow how many great d plays we see out of G while he is playing center ..

 depends on how many blown passes and being in the wrong place ,,not to mention the lazy way off the ice from a shift .

This is a very young D.

Just checking in from work here and there. JVR made a nice pass on the first goal. Hart making some good stops along the way. Guess I'm still not over punishing myself yet.

Wow now they want to play now they have been eliminated from the playoffs.

 

I knew they would end up f**king the draft pick up they always do.

 

The to little to late squad.

 

The fireman who finally get the firehose ran and connected by the time your house is burned to the ground...

 

SMFH

 

...plenty of time for them to still lose.

Well they finally win.

 

At least they have found their goalie for next year.

 

Still f**king up the draft pick is what they do.

 

Can't even tank right.

Occ: There is still plenty of time left to tank.  

 

They did look alive tonight and Hart was great. I was sorry he couldn't peg the shutout.  

Hopefully the talk about signing Bobo will drop off.  I still think we need a roster purge.  That said, Patrick actually looked engaged.

Yeah so fitting every one decides now they want to play with nothing to play for.

 

With the exception of Hart who is a bright spot for the future.

 

The dead weight certainly needs to be trimmed soon.

 

Time to look forward to the draft and next year.

      I'm just happy in all this mess they have found their goaltender for next year.   Now i hope we can put the Bob to Philly or Quick to Philly rumors to bed.   Let Hart roll with it.

      Great summary.  Despite saying I wasn't going to watch as often, I did tune in about midway through the first and watched for the most part.  Hart is so good.  He is going to be very special (and I don't think I'm overvaluing him! (cross reference to my post in another thread)).  He will get more savvy, learn to read even better than he already does and probably become a little more assertive/competitive around his crease.  Looking forward to his development.   Looked like Patrick had

      Observations from last night.   - Well hot damn, this Carter Hart kid seems to be for real. Swallowed up every puck he could, always calm and in position. JJ and Jonesy mentioned more than a few times that he reminds them of Price, and I would agree. Technically sound, in control, and makes hard stops look easy. If he can get a good 25-30 NHL games under his belt this year, that's a great training ground for working out the kinks in what has become a lost season.   - Nolan Pa
