A few things...I'm not going to go on about this game, but rather the team in general

-Even though he got overpaid, this team misses Prust. Asham is a passable replacement, but he just doesn't quite have the fire Prust did when he played here.

-If the right deal comes along, for the first time ever, I'm open to trading Stepan. Dude looks absolutely lost 90% of the time. I'm really starting to worry about him.

-Lundqvist doesn't deserve his deflated GAA and save percentage as a result of the two Penguins games this season. Talk about being hung out to dry.

-The Nash, Richards, Gaborik line needs to be broken up. We're becoming the mid 2000's Ottawa Senators. The parallels are eerie. Great first line, crap forward depth, solid defense and goalie, but never quite good enough to win it all. Distribute the wealth. The Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik line worked so well last season, why hasn't it been tried once yet 7 games in?

-It would be nice if Kreider came back and played like he did in the playoffs last year in the absence of the captain. He would add a dangerous dimension to the 2nd line if he comes back healthy and actually decides to show up to play.

-Nash is a phenomonal talent, but god damn, he needs to learn how to use his teammates.

-Really liking Stralman's game lately. This defense would be absolutely deadly if we could pair him with Staal and put Del Zotto with Sauer if he was healthy. Hopefully McIlrath can step in next year and take Sauer's place and add that consistent snarl that Sauer gave us on the back end.

Time to get more rest, back at it on Saturday.

P.S. For the love of God, change up the strategy and crash the net on the power play.
