Juolevi's way better than Chatfield, that hit on Tkachuk was one of the best parts of the game. The big Swede though was letting Tkachuk ragdoll him, memories of Daniel, getting bullied by Marchand. What the heck Edler, fight back. 

Just wonder what it would do to the team's attitude and confidence to have seen Edler answer the call and throw down with thepuke.

Edler is a leader on the team.  Being bitch slapped like that does  not breed team toughness.

Do we have a 24 yo Ferland? Why is Green benching him for JV? Oh right, you are saying something dumb to make a point.

 

You missed the point. JV is the best player to play that we currently have available. When Pods arrives, that will be a different story.

Playing players that are worse than what JV brings because you feel he is not good enough is counter productive. I want the team to win not hold grudges that he did not turn into blah.

No grudges. Regardless of talent if he puts in a PLD effort on and off the ice I'd rather call up Kole Lind and reward his hard work. Than watch JV drag his entitled A$$ around.

I feel like reacting would be playing right into the Flames hands.   We won the game....we don't have to risk someone getting injured or suspended at that point.  And bet your bottom dollar that we come out at the losing end IF suspensions are handed out.  

 

During the game, Edler was a beast. 

 

It's more about pride and the flipside to that, humiliation...and I get that.  But I found the Flames pissy poor sportsmanship more humiliating than the fact that our guys didn't buy in.  They just skated off with the 2 points.  See ya.  Flames wanted a reaction and to vent and they didn't get it.  Let the frustration sit with them for awhile rather than giving them an outlet.

 

During a game?  Sure...fight back.  When it's done and you've won?  Don't have to.

Probably not, but it may breed team discipline.

As last nights game demonstrates (and its only one game), when the team is playing a tight, structured game, the giveaways on D are cut right down.

The worst giveaways last night were by a forward (Miller).

 

As this season demonstrates, our defence has literally given up the most goals in the league.

 

Paint that in your picture

I still feel the pain/humiliation of Marchand doing that to Daniel.  The league didn't respond and I think it does breed passivity in a team when its leaders allow themselves .to be treated that way.  Most fans want to see this team be more physical but that comes from creating a culture of not being physically dominated not from bringing in one guy who is expected to do the heavy lifting for others. We don't have that and havent since the 90's.

Well if you are painting pictures paint the big picture. Earlier in the season the forwards were giving the puck away like candy on Halloween. Not to mention some shaky goaltending. Not all on the defence.

I enjoyed the Juolevi hit on Tkachuk as much as anyone, but I think he should've played the puck. Calgary got a prime chance on that play because Olli was out of position after delivering the blow.

Wonder who had the puck when Ollie level Tkachuk?

iirc it was Tkachuk.

Edler takes more undisciplined penalties than anyone else on the team. The ONE TIME a penalty would've been worth it, and it would've fired up the team. Yes, they won, but not because of Edler's restraint.

Thats probably the reason that I emphasized that it was 'only one game'

Paint that in yours.

A fight at the end of a game is a suspension and Tkachuk knows that. More importantly Edler knows it. Tkachuk wanted Edler to drop his gloves and punch him so he can turtle and let Edler miss the rest of the “series”

 

Great vet restraint by Edler. Now he can come out and crush more Flames next game

That and zero fighting majors in Edler’s career, if you're expecting him to fight now that’s kinda on you at this point. Smart vet move by Eddie

Has anybody started to notice lately, that Matt Tkachuk does his best work after the 3rd period ?.

Esler could have engaged/responded  by "wrestling" back and defending himself without fear of a suspension.  He just stood there like a punching bag.  Sorry but that behaviour, disciplined or not, does impact the way players feel about themselves and their team.
