  1. I heard Dreger on TSN today say Brassard is actually in play. Seems he hasn’t been a fit in Pittsburgh and they’re looking to move him. He’s a UFA at the end of the year, and tends to play big in the playoffs. Might help us shore up center on that third line, but as I mentioned on a previous post, I wouldn’t give up Janko or Bennett for him. I’m thinking Czarnik or preferably Ryan. Brassard may be able to gel with Neal, and if he doesn’t have any better chemistry than what we have going with Neal now, we let Brassard walk at the end of the year. Alternatively, if the Wild fall out of the race by the TDL should we consider trading for Eric Staal? $3.5m salary, UFA at the end of the year. The wild have gone 6-4-0 in their last 10 and they’re holding on to the last wild card spot currently by 2 points. Admittedly, part of me would really like to see Ferly back for a cup run. I’m just not giving up a first round pick or more for him like Carolina has reportedly been asking.
  2. I want Gio to get a Hattie. For the all star snub
  3. Gio now sitting in 2nd for points by a D man.
  4. Not a sharp start, but their legs are moving a little more. Arizona looks like they want to play fast paced. Smitty is letting opponents get too close to him before he plays the puck for my liking.
  5. I’m hoping Smitty can make a couple of solid saves here tonight. It’ll be a start to restoring his confidence. The preference would be for Smith to return to form so that we’re not giving up assets to strengthen the goaltending position at the TDL, and we can focus on adding other pieces. Let’s go Smitty! Let’s go flames!
  6. I’d love to see us pickup Brassard, with the way he steps up and produces in the playoffs. He’d be the guy I’d use to center Neal and help set him up and distribute the puck on a third line. However, I know it’s wishful thinking on my part. Pittsburgh ain’t giving him up because they need him for the playoffs, and there’s too much (undeserved) love for Ryan on our end (plus we ain’t giving up Janko) to make room for him.
  7. Woohoo! Improve that overtime record and get the 2 points! Thank you Brodie for the finish, Tkachuk for the beauty pass. Winning games that you shouldn’t are what good teams do.
  8. Thats gold Carty!
  9. I just think he deserves to be there. Let him decide if he wants to pull an Ovi
