I think we need to trade for a d, or the season will end badly come playoff time from guys getting too much ice-time like Spacek, Hamrlik, Gorges, Gill. We need someone who can log minutes and play some solid hockey.
Up front, I thought we played great. Had a lot of chances, couldn't capitalize. This isn't the same Pacioretty that was here last year, boy does he have lots of talent. Pouliot really impressed me tonight, he is really starting to turn into quite the player. Reminds me Havlat, hope he gets there.
We outplayed the flyers, and maybe we deserved a bit better tonight. Still a lot of positives in this game to take, the habs are going to be a good team for sometime if we can get another d-man. He needs to be top notch though, I think we can afford to give away a bit with where our team is at.
I like that we've waited to make a decision, because not too long ago it was all about how badly we needed a top 6 W and that our D was fine. Things can change quickly, I see no reason to rush any decisions.
Pouliot has been excellent, and MaxPac's 1st game was quite the eye-opener.
Now we just need to get Weber in the lineup. There have been comments on how tired some of our vet D have been. We don't need to trade for one, we need to play the D kids we have in our system more.
