The bolded part-Thats a ludicrous statement..

Anyhow, Thats the last I will say. for now.
glad were both done with it. see ya

If an NHL first-gamer didn't score a goal against the Sharks then I think their performance can probably be graded as less than average.

The only bad thing I have to say about Petrecki is the outlet pass is nearly non existent. Everything else wasn't that bad. But yeah from what I saw I'm not sure Petrecki could make an outlet pass to save his career....

I'm also fine with Clowe being a "Jeff Odgers" 92-94 type player on the 4th line (can score goals, fights, physical)

Just not fine with Clowe being on the 2nd line as the 3rd wheel to the insanely good and exciting Couture-Havlat combo.
What has Havlat done this year? Most of what I have seen is skate 7 feet, try a move, lose the puck, backcheck late behind the play. That is exciting to you?

His unexciting play has lead him to be tied for fourth in goals. How boring. Also I guess you didn't see the breaks he has been on

The first goal didn't go in off of Murray's leg. It went in off of Niemi's left skate. Watch the replay a couple of times and you'll see it. Pollak even noted that it went in off of Niemi.

Niemi has been struggling with those bad angle shots, but He's still doing damn fine. He's @ 1 even strength GA/G, and that's even counting the one that went in off of Boyle's skate.

I was at the game and was surprised to see Petrecki in the lineup. I didn't hear the lineup changes. When I noticed he was out there, I paid close attention. If anyone is going to pick at his game, he didn't commit any gaffs as Irwin and Braun did. I'm not implying that he is better than them but he played the simple game and looked ready to hit and make plays. A nice debut for him in my opinion.

Plus it's pretty tough to ask a guy to make a difference his first game in the NHL when the team is playing that badly. They probably should have paired him with Stuart so he could play with someone his first game that wasn't terribad.

1 goal? Really? I guess if you put it that way, he is next to last in goals.

He is also "tied" in points with Clowe by the way. Main thing is not trivial stats a few games in but that he has not been playing yet like a strong contributor. He needs to be far more effective.

2 goals. He looks dangerous to me out there and he was a +5 in corsi last night, which was highest on the team.

EDIT:He was 3rd in Corsi behind Clowe and Couture but was tied for 1st in on ice chance differential.

Havlat's been great. No matter who they put him with - Clowe, Couture, Gomez or even Michal freaking Handzus(!), he's out there creating chances.

CORSI is the best way to determine someones effect on ice. if hes a +5 in CORSI hes probably one of the more dangerous players. shooting percentage likely isnt on his side, and if hes generating chances from clowes stick, his shooting luck is in the basement right now. itll come his way though.

I would like to see Havlat play with Joe at some point. They were out briefly together during the 1st period and they created a bunch of good chances.

At the tank from my angle it looked like it went right past him on his short side.

The goal didnt go off of murray, went off of niemi into the net.

He was probably reading a different play, but since the ducks set an illegal pick it threw him off. either way he saved the game later and allowed coutures flukey goal to tie it. niemi has been great this year.

Exactly. He has been playing fantastic.That kick save on Perry was outstanding.

I only brought it up because it looked extremely flukey from my angle, and he had already given up a real weak one a few games ago. Not a big deal really.

Marleau-Thornton-Havlat
Couture-Gomez-Pavs
Slowe-Handzus-Wingels
Galiardi-Desi-Burish

(Just threw the bottom six together since they're fairly interchangeable)

I'd keep Clowe on the 2nd line just to keep the other lines straight. Your lineup has the most molasses 3rd line this side of Jason Allison

Yeah that's why I made that comment about the bottom six, was mostly focused on the top two lines. I don't know why I thought to swap Gomez for Clowe, should have done this instead:


Marleau-Joe-Havlat
Clowe-Couture-Pavs
Galiardi-Gomez-Wingels
Handzus-Desi-Burish

I like that, except I'd keep Handzus at C and move Desi to LW

Did anyone else get a laugh when the camera panned on Getzlaf on the bench during the shootout? I knew he was balding, but he's got the full George Costanza look going on now.
