Definitely will be a tougher game than it has been recently, but they're having troubles scoring and the Blues are pretty good at keeping the puck out of their own net. I expect a good effort after the rest days
Do you forget he's an older player and every year impacts him negatively? The lockout didn't help him either.
I agree, in the limited looks at him so far...and reading into the fact that he's not on the opening day line-up, he's lost a step from what was already starting to be a decline in his speed.
His hockey sense won't go away, but he's looking about Arnott's speed now. I'm still hopeful that he can be productive in a limited role this season, but at this point he is going to have to fight his way onto the 4th line.
The Reaves love on here is admirable, but there are still tools that Langenbrunner (or even Porter) have which Reaves doesn't have. There will be match-ups where it makes less sense to play Reaves.
The tough guy to figure is D'Agostini. He has a hard time gelling on the 4th line, and not quite good enough (at this point) for a top 9 role. I'm not sure what to read into Schwartz sitting out much more than the fact that Sobotka is playing really well and deserves more minutes right now. I think its more about Sobotka and less about Schwartz, just Schwartz is the obvious choice. Also, as a rookie, Schwartz would benefit from thinning out the schedule a bit and not having to play every single game. Must suck for D'Agostini though, to see Sobotka move up and Langenbrunner in, and he still sits. I sure hope he's getting motivated and not sulking. I was a little disappointed that he didn't show more in his start last week. It was an opportunity to show the coaches they were wrong to sit him, but he didn't really do that.
Lets go Blues!!!
Hoping for a good game tonight. I'm ready for this game after the 3 days off. I hope I can get my v-bookie bet in still. I'll be back I'm going to go bet it all.
Cool, u can bet right up till 6:00 central
anybody know a good stream online with decent quality? I being at miami university cannot get the game on gamecenter because it's blacked out. thanks. Also, I work with the team here so i'm at basically every practice and game, I know none of our specs are on Miami but if u guys want any scouting reports or whatever on any of our players just lemme know. Also Alex Wideman from st. louis is on our team.
