I think most of us were confused with the trading of a pick for Rundblad given we were stocked on defensive prospects at the time. Having said, I hope Tarasenko does well because it is great for the game even if we second guess not drafting him for the next 20 years.

Go Tarasenko

Agreed. All defensemen make mistakes (and it's okay) but Karlsson's mistakes are so much more amplified on HF.

Tarasenko has three points now, picked up another assist on Pietrangelo's goal. This kid is tearing it up out there!

Guys.... GUYS!


I don't want to alarm you, so I'm going to need you to sit down before I say this. Are you sitting down yet?

OK.


OK, GUYS. Are you ready? Because this is coming right out of left field.


OK, here it goes: Carlo Colaiacovo is INJURED!


... I know, right? Carlo! Mr. Iron Man! Who would have ever guessed the first Red Wing to be hurt this year would be Colaiacovo?

Crazy times we're living in, guys. It's a random, completely unpredictable world out there.

Well, this. Rask will be a top-5 goalie... just didn't have the opportunity yet.

1992 Entry 2 1 Alexei Yashin C Moscow Dynamo [Russia] 850 337 444 781 401

Many of those guys could have been stars or very solid NHL players but it never materialized outside of Volchenkov and Yashin... I find it silly to see some Sens fans still asking about that... maybe young guys who haven't been around for too long?

This organization has too much history with Russians and is biased against them... Call it the Yashin expirement if you want. They prefer to sign them as UFAs (or could even trade for them) or spend a lower pick for a high potential young Russian (3rd for Filatov), but you won't see them spending a 1st round pick on a Russian. I would be extremely surprised to see that

Slight upgrade in offense for the much bigger risk wasn't worth it imo. Plus, it's only 2 games in.
Well this... I'm actually surprised Tarasenko decided to come over... it sure didn't look like it not long ago.

And it's not like the Sens were the first team to pass on a talented Russian kid, it happens a lot more times every draft than the number of goals Tarasenko could pontentially score in a season.

Evgeny Kuznetsov is as good or better IMO and he got drafted 28th by the Caps in 2010 because they could afford to take that kind of risk... Many teams passed on Tarasenko too, just not the Sens. Imagine the disaster if we drafted him and he never came? A lot of worse than not picking him.

So all I am saying is I hope threads aren't going to get flooded by Tarasenko discussion if he is the rookie of the year... But we know it will happen anyway, even if he's not.

It's OK if other teams have talent too, Blues have been starving for a while and now they finally have some.

Tarasenko is stupid stupid good. But Turris is a legit second line center.

Spezza + Turris = two scoring lines pretty much regardless of whatever else. That's enough for me.

I'm glad we traded Rundblad though.

Wow, everyone thought the Canes would be really good but so far they have not impressed. Blown out by Florida and now down 2-0 to Tampa in the first period.

Habs score on Panthers early... I guess that blow out was just a short fad.

Hopefully they're really tired by the time we get to them on Thursday.


I'm sad though because the Panthers are my second favourite team.

Not saying they're an elite team, but it's their second game. Doesn't indicate much. Rangers are 0-2 and Columbus is 1-0-1.

That could change a lot in, arguably, the worst division in hockey. I wasn't expecting them to be great, but didn't think they'd be this bad.
