Huge win that restores some of the faith in this group. Obviously doesn't fix all our problems but it shows that this team cares about making sure this season is different and that's all we can ask for really. The results may not always go in our favour but if they play with guts like they did tonight, then zero complaints from me. I would have liked if they sent me off to bed a few minutes earlier but that Tanev goal made it all worth it.

He needs Edler back.  Him and Hughes just don't work as well together.  We've seen it a lot of times where one of them turns the puck over (usually Myers) and then they're both acting like roaming d-men/forwards and look like chickens with their heads cut off in our own zone.  We've seen it multiple times in the last 10 games.  

On another note, I don't know how, but Green has to keep Fantenberg in the lineup when we get Edler back.  The guy's been a stud and definitely our 3rd best d-man almost every night and tonight I'd say our 2nd best d-man. 

It’s getting obvious why the Jets let him walk.. it didn’t take long for his warts to show..the guy is a fire hazard in his own zone.. Myers is playing above his ability right now and it’s on display 


honestly I’d take him out over any of the other D, he looks tired physically and mentally  

Edler, Hughes, Tanev, Stecher, Benn and Fantenberg are all better choices

It's sad that there are still officials who condone this dangerous behavior. If the NHL really cared about player safety they would mandate the refs call a penalty on every dangerous play.


Hopefully a suspension is coming but I doubt there will be one because the NHL like the NFL doesn't care about the players health.
