Maybe his belly has grown leaps and bounds. He's been hammered almost every day.

Dude really gets into workout mode in mid-August.

I was bouncing around on behindthegoal last night. In some Corsi ratings, Wilson had a better year than EJ did. Crazy. Wilson's quality of competition wasn't very good (he played against weaker lines) but he still posted really good numbers. Maybe he will step up this year.

Let's wait for TSN or RDS to talk about it first.

i still think were going want to save some cap room, so nothing big happens on our end,

what i dont get is we now have two shut down pairings

o-brien - zanon
o-byrne-hejda

who's going to be moving the puck up to the forwards, even if we split all the pairings are wilson ? mostly wilson and ej the guys we want making the first pass out of the zone.

Sounds vaguely familiar.

I agree wholeheartedly with this. And I have absolutely no worries about Radar, no matter who he plays with.

McGinn - Stastny - Jones
Landeskog - Duchene - PAP
Olver/Hejduk - O'Reilly - Downie

Edit: If it's Olver on the third line, those three would be a freakin ***** to play against.

That would be good for the Canucks. I like this signing but I would rather have Semin.

A few thoughts.

Perhaps we didn't sign Matt Carle...because we just didn't want him.

I have a theory, and it's a crackpot one, but oh well.

The thing with Parentau, is that he's essentially Stastny, except from the opposite side. They play a similar game. Camp out down low, look to either cross or throw it back up the boards to the defense.

One of the things that we saw last year was that at times Stastny sort of got to play PP QB from down low. Perhaps the Avs think what they need is a group of solid defensive defensemen who can act as shooters on the PP, and in lieu of a traditional PPQB have a forward down low distributing.

This fixes two problems. First, the problem of the avs getting stuck with a "PPQB" defenseman who is questionable defensively and perhaps not a good shooter. (read: Liles). Secondly, it allows you to have another shooter up top if you have a lot of guys who are going to go to the net.


Two players driving the net, a forward in the corner distributing, two defensemen used as shooters. Seems plausible to me. Parentau is already best distributing on the PP. Staz could get the first PP group, PAP could get the second. Just a thought.

I've enjoyed making fun of Parenteau the past couple yrs but I'd much rather have him right now than Jagr.

This I'm okay with, the defence thing just disappoints me though because it seems unrealistic. We haven't added any puck moving mobility or a top four. We should've gone after a guy like Lundin instead of another defensive dman in Zanon if we weren't gonna sign a top pairing guy.

Planning your team around a PowerPlay? That's a good way to end up in the bottom of the standings.

One of the Avs major problems last year is that our defensive D was just awful at actually getting the puck to our forwards at even strength. It led to a lot of turnovers or wasted offensive chances.
