Nyquist, Tatar and Abdelkader go back to their 14 & 15 #'s that will be huge, Mrazek has a better 2nd half and Nielsen and Vanek help out...they might be ok. There is enough skill to do it, they just need to perform. Starting to feel better that they signed Nielsen because if Hank can't go, could be a good signing.

I wonder if it's him or if it's management telling him. Maybe both.... The streak is great but the kids need a chance to actually play regular minutes. Last year they seemed so quick to pull the plug when a line was struggling instead of letting them work it out. Like I said, kinda hope Zetterberg and Kronwall are banged up enough at the end of the year to go on LTIR. Frees up the roster and cap space and Zetterberg isn't playing 4 more years past this. They won't be bad enough to pick top 5 but you need to get rid of some of this dying weight like Zetterberg, Kronwall and Ericsson.

    yea the only way to work out some kinks for a line is on the ice. no way around that. and it's amazing how many coaches refuse to let guys play through struggles.

    but you really think Zetterberg is dead weight already? is that solely because of his play or his play combined with his salary?

    I said dying because he's not quite dead yet. But staying healthy, dipping numbers and salary all add up. 2015 he had a rough second half and thought his injuries the year before had slowed him and he ran out of gas and thought a full offseason to recover and get in shape would help but it didn't. We'll see how this year goes but would like to get his cap hit off the books sooner rather than later. I'm not one of those fans yelling "Should never have signed him to that 12 year deal!" You got the reigning playoff MVP for a cap hit just over $6mil and there was no cap recapture penalty back then. He would have cost 8.5mil per probably without those last few years at a low salary. Damn you Ken Holland for not knowing the new rules of the CBA 4 years before it was signed!

    The Rangers signing Chris Drury.....to be assistant GM. Maybe he'll tell them "Don't sign 2nd line centers for 7mil a year."

    Frederik Andersen pulled from a game after colliding with a teammate. That could suck for the Leafs.

    Chris Drury is someone who I only moderately enjoy. Don't love the guy necessarily, I mean he's no Kessel certainly, but I'm fine with him.

    Why? Because I don't suck up to a mid-level forward who worked well in a Lindy Ruff system that bore zero Stanley Cups, and which allowed him to sign a massively overpaid contract by the Rangers, in which once again, bore zero Stanley Cups?

    No thanks.

    Suck up? Oh Matt, you crack me up every day.

    You conveniently leave out the Stanley Cup he DID win in Colorado. And yes, I fully expect you to comment on the star power of that team and probably how he rode their coat tails all the way through.

    I'm really sorry Chris played his ass off every shift of his entire career but didn't win enough Stanley Cups for you. That really is the true measure of success.

    Even if he rode coattails, he scored some big goals along the way.
