  1. I'm just not sure that's all. Bo was always a thicker body and felt like he belonged. Jake can score 15 + but can also skate like the wind and crush his opponents. Watch the apposing team when he comes to forcheck...the puck carrier sees him coming and more often than not throws the puck away to avoid being hit. I don't dislike Adam its just not a developmental league. If you can't score you have to do something else very well....win faceoffs, hit hard, fight.... I just don't see him possessing any of those skills at an NHL level that's all. I could be wrong one day.
  2. Im not so sure that he's earned anything. His points per game is still below bottom six and he looked pretty damn outmatched against the blues. Feels like we are forcing this concept. Doesnt look like a lock to me.
  3. I agree its changing...but damn...remember Ferland in Calgary....his physicality, not always legal....won that series. Playoffs are 100% a war.
  4. Oh my goodness Stawns....no! I'm concerned that Jake isnt being allowed to play to his strengths and that he may have lost confidence. I'm not the only fella to notice this. Though it could be just that he's a bad hockey player. I just refuse to believe that at this stage.
  5. I don't, no. I'm just saying....coaches, GM's are absolutely sensitive to the market that supports them. If the local sandwich shop stops serving your favorite turkey on rye are you going to keep going as often? I feel like you are arguing with me for the sake of the argument lol.
  6. When the fans start chanting "fire green" do think he'll care then? How many coaches last after the fans turn?
  7. Im honestly wondering if he's being coached out of that style....I remember when he got that suspension for a shoulder to shoulder hit how hard the Sedins were on him...it really seem to change his style. With Greens attitude i wouldnt doubt hes being miscoached. Don't hit too hard Jake....don't mix it up...Play good defence...but also score and break down the wing....but don't get caught out of position. I'm losing confidence in the coaching staff.
  8. I'm actually sick to my stomach with Greens attitude towards our players getting attacked. The day Hughes got the high stick....the following period the same guy that knocked his teeth out gave him a two handed slash to the back of the leg and no one did anything. We will never get anywhere without any push back. Listen to your fans Travis...protect your stars.
  9. Guys relax. Over 6' over 200lbs with an edge who can score 50 points ...in his prime locked up for less than 6 mill. This is absolutely a good deal for us. We kept Virt and we kept our second rounder this year. Do you guys want to suck and rebuild for ever?
  10. What was that about chemistry? What do we do if quenville is an option?
  11. Just curious how everyone would grade our coaching staff for the job they did this year. What nuances were noticed...goods bads? I was a bit off topic on one of the Guddy posts earlier so I thought I'd start a new thread. It's early but hes already playing over 20 min in Pitts and seems to have the fan base there excited. This is my post... I've noticed it a lot this year. I like coach Green but I've seen him out coached on systems several times this year...he doesn't seem to be a fan of chemistry instead forcing pairings and line combos together based on some odd algorithm known only to him. Case and point...the Pearson addition. Everybody and their dog knew that we needed a winger for Bo....so what does he do? After a great showing with Goldy on the Boes and Petey line....breaks up the top three lines and slots in pearson...the result was a totally discombobulated lineup that had no flow at all. I've found forward lines always work in twos....you get two guys that play together exclusively and rotate the third guy if necessary. Beoss and Petey......Bo and Peason.... Lets let them for some chemistry...become friends...get excited. There is a human element that seems lost on our coaching staff. Don't get me started on why we lost two top European prospects from our farm team in the same year for the same reason ...rant over
  12. Sorry brother but I kind of agree with Canckel.... I've noticed it a lot this year.
