I like what Fletcher said reading his quotes, doesn't sound like he's going to come in and start pissing away prospects. He's watching the Phantoms tonight I am interested to see if he makes an immediate call up or two just to send a message.

One would assume that the league--especially folks involved in GM/scouting roles--are highly aware of what Hextall has been up to at a granular level, so you wouldn't expect someone to come in and just burn the house down. Very different from taking over, say, an aging team that is struggling with limited resources in the pipeline (Holmgren taking over for Clarke).

I don’t think NHL teams actively try to get their coaches fired, but tonight has been a total no-show in their first game under a new GM.

The first 25 games weren't enough?

Clarke was pretty good ...

It will be interesting to see how far Giroux can climb, given that he will ideally be age regressing on a team that has a real shot to be pretty good. Should buttress his numbers a bit, and you figure that he will continue to pick up PP points at a decent clip.

Sanheim played 12:38 last night, Lindblom at 4:38. Even if you factor in a heavier than usual night on the PK, that's just not enough.

I hate JVR and Simmonds on the same line.

Should be:
JVR-Patrick-Voracek (at least try to get JVR and Voracek to develop some 15 million dollar chemistry)
Lindblom-Laughton/Weal-Simmonds

It does seem like the D have a bit more of a green light in the neutral zone with the new D coach but it's only 1 game. Nice to see Sanheim getting a couple goals but it's brutal how underused he is. Our 2nd PP should have Provorov and Sanheim on the points not Provorov and forward. Sanheim and Lindblom are getting buried for no reason at all.

Couturier DTD, looks like Giroux centering JVR and Konecny.

Stolarsz is rocking a 0.907 svpct on the year. And after watching last night's highlights, it could have considerably worse.


It's still very early in his career, but if he can stay healthy and keep his performance at about the same level we're seeing there's no reason he can't be considered a legitimate back-up.

Which is, sadly, a substantial upgrade on the non-Elliott games we’ve had this year

Apparently a fan threw their jersey on the ice and left the game, if that's true it is hilarious.
