Arizona was a good win.
Colorado was playing 20 minutes and letting Freddie do the rest.
Detroit sucks. More accurately, Howard was terrible early. That Barrie goal had no business going in.
Played 20 minutes against Buffalo, Auston was true to form and we and came down to Earth.
Not bad last night.

Not really, just enjoying a refreshing restart to the season and trying not to be a Debbie Downer about the whole situation. It’s nice watching an entertaining team again. But you do you, if that’s working.

Still not entertained by poor defense, crappy backup goalies, too many perimeter shots and incomplete efforts. Same as I ever was.

Both are true, the team looks more engaged with the new coach and the roster isn’t adept enough to play well defensively.

That’s the type of situation MacKinnon wants to avoid. Balanced teams are often the ones left standing at the end of the playoffs, which is where he wants to be. Deals like his, as unfair as they might be, help make that happen.

“We have guys that we wouldn’t (otherwise) be able to bring in,” MacKinnon said. “On my next deal, I’ll take less again. Because I want to win with this group.”

I may never forgive Marner and Matthews for scuttling this team with their individualism. Or Dubas for being unable to have them buy in.

I always hated that people complained about Naz headhunting and then turtling. He went with Jumbo and Backes, those are not small guys. Nor are they guys who are unaccustomed to physicality.

Maybe I’m old fashioned but fuck does it piss me off when Fred gets run or a headshot is given out and the team skates by as though nothing happened. I don’t want you go McSorely a guy but fucking rough them up a bit. That hit on Matthews from Dillon(?) should have been an automatic fight for the closest Leaf.

He didnt go with joe...he ripped a handful of beard out and fell to the ice in fear.

Now im not saying he wasnt smart to do so. But when you play that style of game occasionally you have to take the beating.

“It’s a good question. It’s one I’ve been asking. We’ve got to figure that out. The natural thing for me is to say we’ve got to get the puck to more dangerous areas, and we’ve got to attack the middle of the ice a lot more. We do have to skate a little bit harder and be a little more competitive to fight through situations and things like that.”

There’s some pretty hilarious dividing of people into “traditionalists” and “innovators” in the commentariat. Like you can’t count, read a few graphs and still think that stubborn bastards who drive their way through D to the net stand a good chance of creating “High Danger Chances” or whatever we’re calling shots from the slot now. Or that D will react to this danger by engaging in behaviours that will come up against or break the rules.

Are you calling Dubas a Sith? He's certainly no fan of having any grit and grind on the team.
