I absolutely LOVED Torts comment on Brooks....loved it!!!!
Since the year they were drafted I dreamed of Sauer and Staal being a pairing together. Two big defenders who can do it all. Last night (I know it's just preseason and DT had a crap squad out) they looked awesome together!!!!. I really hope Sauer makes the team. It'd be awesome if these two were a regular pair all season. I truly believe Staal Sauer can be a better pair than Staal DG.
Every time I see Sauer on the ice, he looks so broad, though he still skates so well, I really like him. He needs to be on this team, Gilroy can sit.
It's a valid point I'm not arguing that but I think he could replace EC in the top six if he struggles let Prospal center the top line move Drury to wing and throw Stepan on the 3rd.
This is a GOOD problem to have. Let Stepan wet his beak on the third line and then if his play warrants it (and I suspect it will) you bring him up and drop someone down to the third line.
I really like what I see from just about all our youngsters out there....White...i'm Ehhh about. I'd much rather they keep Kennedy up. He's young and hungry and he plays balls to the wall. I think he will have a good season if given the chance.
MDZ could have just as easily made that pass to Gaborik. Right place at the right time. MDZ should be the QB.
Nobody is saying MDZ shouldnt be the QB. He is the #1 choice b/c of his offensive skillset. However my point was more towards how the Rozsival haters, who really probably don't know much about hockey; are back out in full force.
