No one has answered my questions from page 2 or 3? WHY the hell is Jon Sim on the 2nd line, AND the freaking Power Play???


Theres no reason why that no talent ass clown should be on th e power play. No excuses.

And if I can stand up for Gillies for 1 second. yeah he got stripped of the puck, but if you watch the replay, Nielsen, Reese and Hamonic were all standing in a perfect triangle around Gaborik. They are all at fault for just standing there letting the guy take the shot.
No backcheck on him, no boxing him out, no defense.

I think your question was not answered because there is no answer. There is no reason why he is out there. There is no reason (besides lack of anyone better) that he got called back from BPort.

i think he is on PP2 to stand in front of the net since nobody else does on the PP. the only problem is the PP is so bad they dont get a chance to setup

Maybe because Capuano saw Sim's dominance and thought that no one could hold him back in the NHL when given a chance!

Yea that and the ridiculous amount of times he's stretching out. It's almost like everyone on both teams knows that he's in rough shape.

When he got ran over by Callahan it's like you could tell he was thinking "oh crap I might have just ended his career" look he had on his face. It seems for the most part even other teams are going just a little easier in front of the net on DP compared to Rollie.

Dylan Reese was a plus 2 when no one else was

and Matt Martin was a minus 3.

Why isn't Comeau playing with JT and Moulson.

Woudn't Satan be better than Sim....
Guerin would be a better fit but you're not far off.

-Schremp gets alot of hate on the boards but I have to say at least he is very involved offensivley,
-For a big guy Joensuu does not hit very hard. Almost seems to ease or slow up into the opponent.
-DiPietro almost seems to suffer from a confidence problem when he gives up a goal.
-Konopka and Gillies really care about the team and their teamates- it just shows on their face and their play.
-Sim and Eaton on the 2nd PP unit- enough said!
-MacDonald will be solid for a very long time
-Martin is the next Nystrom- Hopefully (I am 47 and watched many Nystrom games at the NVMC so I do not write this carelessly).
-The rags fan at the NVMC never have and never will have any class. The chanting is fine, the hats for gaborik I can deal with. I have even learned to live with/ignore the Potvin Cups chant. But the DP sucks chants, show some class guys.
That's all- thanks
FYI: i noticed many of the isles fans in my section and the surrounding sections partaking in the Dp Sucks chant...just sayin'...

Martinek's worst game as a pro? Wiz not far behind. Neilsen as well.

Good effort by MacDonald, Reese and Hamonic. Still like Grabner.

Comeau gets rewarded for going to the net, any chance he wakes up?

I am truly tired of watching some of these guys, some nhl players please.

Oddly enough our one PP last night was the best it looked in awhile. Maybe Dougie had a positive imact with something.
