  1. Myers has been good this year and with his contract he probably isn’t going anywhere until it expires so better just eat the fact he’s here for the duration of it. Losing him would make an already thin blue line a lot thinner too.
  2. He’s been outstanding but Garland with the game winner and points in every game thus far making less than 5 mill a year and bringing it nearly every shift he’s winning heart and minds amongst fans in the city at a rapid pace. Petey…take note.
  3. If they continue to look like this well into the home stand and and the top players don’t get going I think it will give Benning no choice but to give this team a new face at the helm to salvage the season. They look exactly the way they did last season with a better roster. Look at Nate Schmidt in Winnipeg..he looks like he did in Vegas..good. Everything just looks..stale and lethargic.
  4. “We didn’t play well enough. But give credit where credit is due..that’s a good team over there. They played well. We need to play better.”
  5. No but they are doing what the coaches are coaching them to do in practice. The PP is not something you just go out there and wing it. It’s no different than the PK, where the coaches clearly want them to stay static in a passive box, use their sticks to take way the shooting/passing lanes and high danger chances by not leaving the back door open.
  6. Podkolzin has some filthy hands and can dish the puck well from what I’ve seen. I don’t understand why he isn’t dressed and why he isn’t tried on the PP. Couldn’t be any worse than what we are witnessing out there.
  7. Hard to believe the expansion team Seattle has a better looking PP with way less offensive talent than the Canucks. Mind boggling.
  8. The passive box defending technique is garbage. This team refuses to move its feet on special teams. Your more prone to giving up high danger chances by leaving the back door open or temporarily losing a man but what does it matter they still suck on the PK even though that goal came after it.
  9. Nice to see them come out with some jump. Kyle Burroughs should be a mainstay on that 3rd pairing he’s played exceptionally well so far.
  10. I think he needs to adapt his game a bit. In his rookie year nobody had the book on him yet and he thrived. Now teams know if you relentlessly check him hard and take away his time and space you can contain him and prevent him from making you look silly. The Sedins are prime example of having to adapt their style of play to really thrive. Remember, It took them a few years. I think a lot of it is in his head, too. He gets frustrated when things aren’t going his way and it forces him to try and do too much thus trying low percentage passes and plays turning the puck over. Also, he isn’t shooting the puck as much as he used to. It’s his best weapon and I hope he starts using it more, especially on the PP.
