I just hope that when Trevors Timmins contract expire, we will offer him a hell of a raise to keep him until 2299...
Frankly if we are able to spend 1.7 mil on a 4th line player we can at least offer the same amount to him.
For the power house question, I will wait until hte end of the season but we look real good.
We're going to win some games this year based on sheer depth and talent alone. I think the Flyers game was an example of this, we sleepwalk through 2 periods then decide to go score some goals. This is OK for the beginning of the regular season, but it's not how you become successful in the playoffs. Hard work and goaltending becomes way more important in the playoffs.
Andrei is playing good hockey anyways. Really, when you look at that line they all have played well, they just haven't been able to finish at even strength. Andrei is doing what he needs to do out there; he is playing a physical game, causing turnovers and using his good hockey sense to both make room out there and find the open man. This line is playing well they are just not finishing, and trust me, they will.
Exactly. But not being accustomed to, just need to know what to do with that potential.
Still, people have to acknowledge that being a powerhouse doesn't necessarily mean that we'll have 30 points more than anybody else in the league. Detroit was a powerhouse last year. They had 7 points out of the 2nd place in their conference. That's 4 more wins.
