i only recall one after whistle scrum around Khabi last night. DB went in once and that was it. way to get in his head and mess up his game. LA played 60-minutes of warming up the goalie last night.
that's totally true. he almost always was ready and aware of where the puck was coming from.

And waive or trade DD44, preferably trade him to a team that needs D maybe we could get a mid to low pick for him.
i'm inclined to agree with tonelli on this one, though. i think we still have some time to evaluate things, and i definitely think some line shakeups are in order, and are far more likely than any transactions occurring. yes, we have done them already, and they might not be the best option, but TM/DL haven't really shown themselves to be very active in that way when the team is struggling. so, regardless of whether call-ups or demotions are necessary at this point, i don't think it is going to happen anytime soon given management's history.
