More afternoon games! Guys are flying around out there. I dunno if it was a confidence or an injury thing with Patrick, but he looks like a different guy now compared to November.

Good game. Some pretty bad BS by the refs in the middle period, but team played well and got a good victory on a division rival.

Rangers lose to the Avs. This means that the Flyers are now only one point behind the Pens and Rags with a game in hand on either, plus Columbus where they are three points behind but also have a game in hand.

However, tomorrow's game has me worried. I mean it's the Capitals and that's always a close fought contest, but still it feels like they're about to run away with the division.

Don't worry. I'm sure the Department of Player Safety is investigating it and an appropriate fine or suspension will be coming Malkin's way said no one ever.

Edit: Holy shit. He got a $5000 fine. More than I sure as shit expected.

The speed at which he executed that backhand, and the placement made it something special.

And as vocal as I have been about Hakstol's utilization, I can't deny the confidence with which Ghost, Konecny, and Patrick are showing right now.

Wow... Hagg has been on the ice for four goals against and zero for. Manning and MacDonald have been on for zero for and two against (each). Ghost and Provorov... one goal for and zero against (each).

That is just special right there.

Manning was directly responsible for those 2 goals against as well. Even Eddie O was calling him out.

Post #645 by CantSeeColors » Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:42 am

So obviously last night's game was a turd, but it actually made me weirdly optimistic about this team's forward group for next year. We're looking at everyone still being under contract except Filppula (and Read, if we still remember him), so based on last night's lines (and subbing in some scratches), I think we have:

G-Couturier-Konecny
Voracek-Patrick-Simmonds
Raffl-open space-Weal
Leier-Laughton-Lehtera/Weise

Those top two lines (assuming Patrick's 2018 form holds) look great, and if there's a good 2C/3C tweener type out there in free agency you're looking at a good third line, and a good 4C. I suspect that Lehtera, with one year left on his deal, gets the Read express to Allentown, and Weise is actually a decent 4th liner. Simply replacing Filppula with a strong 3C gives this group a really nice balance top to bottom. Maybe a guy like Bozak if he's not looking for a million years? Or Mikael Backlund or Lars Eller?

Why not see if Laughton can play 3C though? Re: Backlund, that line he centered with Frolik and Tkachuk had cult hero status last year, get the impression his number would be in the 6ish range? Might be completely off there though. I guess the slight concern w/ Eller/Bozak is that if you give em 5-6 years, probably at least half of those are downside years. Still, Eller on this team would be pretty fun, could always move Laughton to wing if he really needs to be in the top-9.

Will be curious to see how they handle the Provorov/Konecny contracts as well. They made out like bandits with Couturier and Ghost (as much as little stuff can bug me with Hexy, those contracts are massive wins that change the direction of the franchise), wonder if Provy's/TK's agents will be a little demanding.

I'm very curious when we see Lindblom up here, because I have to imagine he's getting close to forcing their hand on that front. It's possible the only reason he hasn't come up is that they want it to be permanent, and have him ready to play meaningful minutes.

I don't think we should be handing out term to a 3rd line C. I think we let Laughton try for it and see how he does. Or if Patrick can't handle 2C we put Giroux back in the middle while we wait for Frost/Rubstov.
