I agree, dont forget that Hitch really seems to like Russell. I also think putting Huskins with Petro makes more sense than putting him with Polak. We have 7 veteran NHL defensemen when everyone is healthy. Not sure Huskins is better than either Russell or Carlo either. He brings something different but Im not sure if he is better than those two.

It seems like every GDT recently a group of people come in here to say they are worried. And all the Blues keep doing is winning.

Sanford out with back spasms, so go ahead and light Mason up (with that defense in front of him, it should be easy). Nikitin out with a knee injury, Methot out with a broken jaw.
Thanks cbjgirl, I'll fix once I get home. Your team has a lot of injuries so I was going by a combination of the line-up thread and ice-time minutes from their last game. It was also difficult because almost your whole forward corp is shown as playing Center on Yahoo Sports.

Agreed. Luckily, the front office doesn't make decisions based on what they read here.

Carlo and Huskins play, Russell sits.

Haha, I was thinking the exact same thing...Where's the faith people!? I say Blues continue their winning streak tonight with a 3-1 win!

Goals CbJ- Umberger
Goals StL- Oshie, Shatty, Perron?!?!

Russel vs Russel tonight. Should be a good matchup to watch.

It would be, but I doubt they get more than a shift or two on the ice together.

Done.

What happened to Johansen, he played their last game on the 12th?

I just don't like games that we really should be winning.

The Blue Jackets have lost 13 of their 15 Division games; their only regulation win coming against Detroit, the other win being in OT against Nashville.

Been meaning to make an account here for a while.

Wondering why there is so much cola hate. I know he isn't our best, but it's not like he makes too many mistakes to make him useless imo. Oh well, go blues!

I can see why some would fear this game, but with Hitchcock connection to the CBJ I believe they'll be up for this one.

I can sort of explain it.

There are a lot of times that Carlo, by playing with Pietrangelo, has his rather glaring mistakes covered up..and there is thought that if Pie were playing with a more competent defensive partner his offense would bloom.
The first part I can agree with, the second seems rather speculative.


As an example of the first point...I remember one instance very, very clearly. It was the Colorado game in December. Colorado comes in to the zone with a 2 on 2 with a third man trailing. Instead of blocking off the inside line and playing the pass first, Carlo attempts to play the shot and guards the outside...in so doing he inadvertently creates a 2 on 1 that Colorado scores on.
A high school defenseman could look at that situation (which did not develop at a terribly high speed by the way) and tell you exactly what was wrong and what should have been done. These sort of mistakes are quite common by Carlo, however thanks to the Blues defensive style they are quite mitigated. Put him on a less defensively talented team and he would be exposed far too often.

Not that I think Russel is any better, or that the Blues could get away with a trio of Jackman clones...they really need a top-pairing defenseman for the left side so teams have a harder time finding someone to isolate on.
