Toxic attitudes in the locker room help no one, and ensure a quick ticket out. Ask Vasichek (?).

This is prosports. Everyone has an inner primma donna. It's when you trot it out for the media that I start to lose respect. You don't fight for the line-up in the newspaper, you do it on ice. Numbers speak for themselves. Another reason why I respect Ellis and Mason. They've kept it under wraps.

seems quite the coincidence, but they are, in fact, all gone.

Some info may be more credible than others, but there is probably at least factions of the dressing room that felt that way about each one of them......probably a minority in most cases, from what I could gather.

Hypothetical here...but if the Bruins were to offer up Kessel in exchange for Weber would that be something that would interest Pred fans. If NOT, what else could be added to make something like that work out?

there's very little that anyone could offer to make us consider trading Weber.

I kind of figured that, but hoped there was a chance.

I'm sure we'll only find out about it after he's traded...

Speaking of Weber, anyone know if the "leg injury" he has now is the same leg where he dislocated his knee cap? Wondering if he came back too soon and dinged it up again.

No, it is an ankle from when Kopitar drove him feet-first into the boards on saturday.

Kid can't seem to catch a break this year. Any indication how serious it is?

No, he is doubtful to even travel on the West Coast trip this week...so at least not until Sunday against the Hawks at home at the very earliest, but likely after that.

You should know that already. Vokoun wasn't a "top-tier" goaltender for quite some time. People having a nifty chant involving his name doesn't make it so.
I disagree with that.

Of course Vokoun had some bad games, and maybe rushed back too soon. But that's par for the course for many good goalies. They think they are the best option so they want to play.

I checked his save percentage and shutouts the past two years. His numbers for a SEASON (not a few "I remember when he had some bad games" stretches) are just as good as at any other time in his career. .919 and .920 the last two years with around 65 (?) and 45(?) games played.

Yeah, us fans were wondering "what's wrong with Vokoun" a few times the last couple years because he wasn't standing on his head and bailing us out of games like our selective memories thought he could do EVERY game. But the season numbers show a high quality performance.

I thought those complaining about Vouky pushing to get back in the lineup were a bit wrong. He knew he was the guy we needed, and anybody worth his salt is going to try to get back in. I doubt it was fear of losing his job.

This season, where Vokoun is still on form (Surprise, he's had a few bad stretches, and still has a season save percentage right where it usually is, which is good.) and Mason isn't, may show that Vokoun was correct about who needed to be in the lineup when he was coming off injury.

I suspect that much of the whining about lockerroom issues came from those who really aren't good enough players to ever get star treatment so it burns them. We don't have any big stars this year, so no whining. I guess when Rads has a breakout year then he'll be the one with the bad attitude all of a sudden.

Not saying that Vokoun didn't sometimes say the wrong things. But many players who are competitive make mistakes at times. As far as I'm concerned, he looked back from his health issues, and I was looking forward to having him this year. Alas. Thank gosh for Ellis. He's not great but at least he's good enough.

Will Weber be back for Tuesday's game against Calgary? Everything I've been reading suggests that game is his target.
