I dont understand why they would want it. A single player, even a #1 is going to be 3 years before they can make a difference. a tank would take 5 years to recover from. Look at the sabres, they get several great picks caused from the tank years (reinhardt, eichel, middlestat, dahlin, cozens) and they still are not good, and its been 5 years.
Is that what they want, 5 years of garbage hockey before a glimmer of hope. I know I dont.
I was a big sabres fan and I started watching
Oh, this team is so frustrating. It’s great they’re winning, but I just don’t see this team as a Cup contender.
Which will probably result in another first round exit and everyone clapping themselves on their back and saying “Wait til next year!” 🙄
...oh, and another 15-20 pick...
Chuck, the Wild have had in the two previous games 49 SOG and scored 9 goals! While the opponent has had 80 SOG and scored only 6 goals.
More like the opposing team's goalies have been the factor (Vasilevskiy .762). Yet I think having Dubnyk out while winning hasn't been coincidental.
Wild's efficiency has been phenomenal but we all know it won't continue like this. Especially for a team who's been a low scoring team for ages.
When a team is playing like the Wild are, it matters LESS who is in goal, but having a bonafide number one still is the preferable choice.
I am not a Stalock fan, but even I will admit he has done pretty well in the time given to him in net.
Granted, in last night's game, I thought he got lucky on more than one occasion as the TB offense just was not cashing in on golden opportunities, but then again, when you are playing well like Stalock and the Wild have, "luck" tends to be a by-product
(shrugs) Early in the season, this team didn't seem too inspired. At some point they got mad and most everyone on the team raised their game. As far as Stalock goes, I've always liked him. Even going back to his HS days at South St. Paul. He's athletic and isn't your typical big body goalie that just uses angles and oversize pads to make every save. Yes, he takes risks...but he also can play the puck at a level most other goalies can't. So it makes it somewhat interesting to watch. I lik
