I have to think Randy Jones earned another game and will remain in the lineup against the Thrashers. Nothing against O'D, but you just can't take out a guy that gets a goal and assist in his debut with the team.
People like to talk about the games you have to win, well this was one, Car and there 11 win less or whatever would have really hurt to blow 2-0 against them. Also while Ersberg played ok, he did give up a softie (2?) so I'm still a little worried. That being said it was good to see the secondary scoring tonite.
1. I like OD, but it was nice to have another mobile d-man back there. I assume they will rotate a bit.
2. So great to see no Ivanans, hopefully this will open Murray's eyes that you don't need a goon in the lineup every game. Ivanans should play 15-20 games a year, tops. Mostly agains our in-state rivals.
3. I bet Quick starts, Murray seems to be pretty loyal with his #1 goaltender. Look how long it took him to bench Labs.
