  1. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Perhaps though none of us know. What we do know is that up to and imcluding the Pittsburgh game, their icetime was declining to where it hit around.9-10minutes. the team was playing well and had a convincing victory over the Pens. Following that game, Green admitted sitting down with the twins and discussing their icetime. Since then, they are seeing around 15+ minutes per game. Interesting how the team's drop in intensity and cohesiveness coincided with the icetime change.

    You sir, are correct. Sad as that is.
  3. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    The Sedins will not win a cup with Vancouver.

    I guess my expectations around "leadership" are higher. You seemed to be blaming the kids for backing off after a successful game in LA. I didn't see them laying off as much as the vets I mentioned. This team has, for years now, had a tendency to not show up or to play down to lesser opponents. As most of the kids are new, it is up to the leadership to show the way. I don't see that happening and instead see the same tendencies that have hurt this team for the past few years. The Sedins may be trying and simply not able to get it done any more but their lack of speed and production is hurting the team strategy of playing a fast paced, aggressive style of hockey.

    Deb...I agree the effort wasn't there but it looked to me that it was mostly our vets that weren't prepared. The sedins were sloppy and lazy at times and edler was a train wreck. Scares me that out kids are being g mentored by guys that are no longer able to walk the talk.

    Those look much better and Stecher can slot in for mdz when he returns too. Stecher has a great shot which seems to have been underutilized and he can skate to get back.

    Sedins on same unit is redundant and undermine any chance of success. Neither will shoot (or can shoot decently) so it makes defending easier. They are slow movers , as is edler so the risk of giving up short handed scoring chances is high. Edler won't pass to boeser so that eliminates much of boeser value. Would rather pouliot be o.n 1st unit...Hes faster, more.mobile, gets his shot through and is capable of getting back to cover.

    Sedins will not be pushed out...That is just bs they have posted. They are being given minutes and opportunity they are not earning because of who they are not bazed on what they are doing. It is likely not going to change but it is frustrating to watch. They get weaker competition now and pp time and still are not producing. Their weak defensive game, bad passing, extended shifts and lazy line changes are all overlooked because they are great guys who used to be great players. I can respect their career accomplishments but their parting can't come soon enough.
  9. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Agreed but does Green have the guts and the latitude?
  10. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I think you mean "with the team dragging them along". ☺

    Hard for Nilsson to battle when he gets one start out if 5.
  12. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    I get the respect thing but it is making past heroes into current parias. It is not fair to the rest of the team or the fan base to waste an entire season pandering to vets who are well past their sell-by date. As you say, if they can't earn their icetime (and they are nit) they should be in the bench or in the press box. Same goes for Marky, Nilsson had been better and should at least be getting equal opportunity to own the crease. Green seems to be falling into a pattern of entitlement in his deployment.
  13. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    That he hasn't realized that yet is what concerns me.
  14. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Starting to worry about Green's choices... Marky has lost 3 of last 4 but keeps getting the call over Nilsson who had better numbers. Sedins with 16 + minutes tonight with 2 pps and they get 2 shots combined. The more they play, the worse we lose.
