Myers bounce back game? Vanek continues his hot streak?

At the very least, please split up 57 - 3.

I would sit Leopold.

Myers-Sekera
Ehrhoff-Sulzer
Weber-Brennan

Myers has been poor lately, but Leopold has been a train wreck. Until Regehr returns, this is our best d-lineup.

He's been good this year, I don't have a problem with his effort this year. I do wish he would start contributing on the scoreboard though.

What's the deal with this poor D organization wide. When they said they had depth ibdidnt think it was the kind you had to scrape off your boots. Someone bring back McKee. Sabres complete the nightmare in Boston by losing to the Habs 3-2 so.

I'm just hoping that they stay out of the box so I don't have to hold my breath with every point shot, especially with Markov and Subban out there... if they lose the game at even-strength, so be it.

Hey guys, Habs fan coming in peace.

Does Scott play every game? Or do you guys just dress him vs the more goonish teams?

Just checking, as he really wouldn't have a dance partner on the Habs. And frankly, after his battering of Thornton hopefully his thirst for destroying another human being has been quenched...for now.

edit: I should mention, I traded Vanek in my FHL sim league this summer....so yeah, big idiot, right here.

I see the underrating of Drew Stafford has continued this season.

It's a lot easier to appreciate Stafford when you accept that he's a streaky scorer. He's a good player who gives an honest effort - one people don't give him credit for nearly enough.

So far he's played every game and it seems like he's getting more and more ice time, tbh he hasn't looked all that bad and even made some nice(for him) plays
