on a different note what do you guys think of a shut down line of MPS-Backes-Oshie late in games where the blues have a one goal lead. I don't think there would be a line in the NHL that would be able to handle those defensive forwards and with the speed of oshie and MPS one mistake could lead to an odd man rush for the blues fairly easily.
I like the line you stated. I like any line on this team. We might be the best 2-way team in hockey now. We are going to be really solid defensively, plus we got Stewart a guy to pass the buiscuit to him in Roy.
I think this is the best team we have iced in a decade atleast. Armstrong might not even be done.
We are bigger now with more skill, Los Angles will be easier to play, so will Chicago because we got faster and more skilled to go with the size. I also think the 2-way system they are building can shut down the elite offenses when you couple it with our unbelievable defense. I'm stoked, this is starting to look right to me.
