My initial thoughts as well.

Mr Sacco, I am not fond of your decisions.

This is what I saw at the skate this morning:

McGinn-Duchene-Parenteau
Mitchell-Stastny-Jones
Kobasew-Sgarbossa-Hejduk
McLeod-Olver-Bordeleau

Shane O’Brien will be a healthy scratch again tonight. Joe Sacco said he’ll decide on the other healthy D scratch later.

Sacco, when asked about why O’Brien is out again, simply said “I go with the six defensemen I feel give us the best chance to win the hockey game.”
Good times.

Come on its not like the lines are the ten commandments
he'll change it up once VAN starts running their bs magic tricks
and they get a 3 spot on us after the 1st
Mitch will be back at C in no time and McGinn with Dutch

or

Sgarbossy turns out a decent performance, Hejduk gets a deuce
and we win 4-3
Optimism!!

also when did we think so little of Hejduk, show some respect
he showed some legs last game, Dubnyk came up huge is all

Dater now says the lines are as follows:

McGinn-Duchene-Parenteau
Mitchell-Stastny-Jones
Kobasew-Sgarbossa-Hejduk
McLeod-Olver-Bordeleau

SOB is a healthy scratch, other D-man to be decided later.

I would play Hunwick over Barrie tonight, and Barrie over Hunwick tomorrow. But Barrie is a BC boy, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him in tonight.

Yeah, but we were losing those games. When we win this 5-1 Chuckie will be too happy to cause trouble.

Play Barrie or send him back to the AHL. Riding the pine does the kid no good.

In one article Dater says Mitchell skated with Stastny/Jones this morning. In his latest article he says Mitchell skated with Duchene/PAP.

Either way, moving Mitchell to LW is just dumb.

Canucks fan here, miss the better rivalry games.

Don't take this the wrong way but would love to see the Avs tank and draft Jones.

I would expect to see Sgarbossa get some PP time where he runs the PP from the left boards (RNH position). That's in the bizarro universe where we get power plays, of course.

Agreed.

Sacco says he goes with 6 d-men that he feels give the best chance to win the game.

So that's....

EJ-EJ
EJ-EJ
EJ-EJ

But in Sacco's mind:

Hunwick-Hunwick
Hunwick-Hunwick
Hunwick - EJ

I don't agree with Varly starting over Giggy. Giggy should have gotten today's game and Varly should have gotten the game for tomorrow.

Yes of course in Sacco's mind that is the best line up. But in average human being's mind with an IQ over 60 it would be EJ-EJ
EJ-EJ
EJ-EJ

The Avs D is so brutal that you really have to dig deep to come up with the best 6 that would give you the best chance to win games.

No matter who you put up there it's just the same crap.

Switch O'Brien with Hejda= same crap
Switch Hunwick with Barrie=same crap
