I wanna see York sit and Hartnell as well (provided he doesn't realize what's wrong with his game).
Here's one thing I want to happen (in every game). I want Arkhipov to get floored up against the boards. Nothing fires this guy up like when he gets hit hard. He plays with so much more intensity when he's mad. They ought to staple his mug shot (from his DUI) on the chests of all the Blues. He would make Hartnell look like Baby China Bull.
As for the Blues, their D core looks disturbingly shallow. After Pronger, theres not 1 good top 4 on the team right now. Career minor leaguer Brimanis is on the third pairing (it seems). I remember when he was the captain of the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. We need to make them pay for putting both him and former Pred pick Mike Stuart on the ice. Neither are NHL caliber players right now and we need to capitalize. Backman's not too good either. He has all the tools but I've never seen him use them. We must get the puck in their end. Take the pressure off our D and put it on their D. Their forwards, while good, aren't nearly as effective in their own end. Let's keep them there.
I'll be at work all night and won't be able to participate in the GDT.
