The dropoff between Staal and our next best player is so large, there is no alternative. If its an important situation, Staal goes on the ice. Particularly with the comfortable schedule the Canes are playing now.

I don't know if Skinner is ready to be another horse for this team yet like Staal is. Kid is still an 18 year old rookie. We don't want to burn him out before the season is over.

When does Jeff Skinner get a bobblehead? I think it should replicate this.

Oh, I agree definitely. I just don't think we are any longer at a point where it is Eric Staal then all of the other forwards.

It's ok, he'll just condition himself to the extra shifts

Hey, he DID do preseason conditioning with Gary Roberts. Aside from Brindy, I can't think of another player who's as fanatical about conditioning as Roberts was.

Yes, just play him extensively and he'll be whipped into shape in no time at all. It's called conditioning, sunshine.

You know, as a side note, if Krispy Kreme ever wanted to really enter the hockey market, they have two ready made spokesmen - Pavl and Don Koharski...or do you think Koharski would demand Tim Horton's?

Y'know, Rod Brind'Amour? He was kind of a big deal for a little while.

Isn't it? .. I stumbled upon it yesterday and got a good laugh out of it. Just goofy looking.

I think it would be awesome if someone could put his head on a Canes bobblehead and make it move around.
