No team is getting past the first round of playoffs with those centers, much less win a Stanley Cup. LMAO looking at that center lineup on paper is even more pathetic than I realized

Yeah it was pathetic enough with Bolland in but take him out and it just looks laughable

#2 C cant play C and should be on wing
#3 C ,, Meh is improving but still
#4 C ,, Old as dirt and offers very little at this time

Just think of where it would be if they were completely healthy and Sharp returned to C...still at the top but probably with 2 more points...maybe.

Take out any team's 2C and yeah it's not going to look good.

Our C depth is not great and at some point the lack of faceoff wins from Kruger/Bolland is going to be reflected in more goals against on PK. It was a minor miracle that they didn't give up more than 1 on the PK last night with them losing draw after draw while on PK.

Mayers is still useful 4th liner who can win faceoffs. Not an every night player but that is good depth at the bottom of lineup.

Sharp is somebody I trade to free up cap space in the future, possibly next year.


People complain this team is not winning with these centers, three of them are still on this team from the cup win.

Toews
Sharp
Bolland

If Sharp can't be effective at C again he's not worth the money IMO.

He's a sniper in the truest sense of the word, he needs to get the puck and shoot. I want to vomit when he enters the zone and tries to deke guys.

Let's try to remember we won a cup with Toews, Sharp, Bolland and Madden as our centers. 3 of those people are still on this team.

If we could get a good return for him, I wouldn't mind him being traded.

When Sharp isn't scoring goals, he isn't providing much. However, we all know the goals will come and we could definitely use them. Patience.

Purty much.

Nothing you can really do about Sharpie. He's not a consistent player, but when he's hot, he's hot.

Yeah and one of them wont play C which hurts the team

If Sharp moved back to C this would be a non-issue and our C depth would be ok

Sharp has had 35+ goals each of the last 3 seasons, he's going to score.

That all not withstanding, the facts remain he is here. Last time I checked, he was a player and not a coach, so it's not his call. Also, it's the coaches job to ensure the roster he has are used to the best of its ability. If we need C help because of injuries, then its on Q to make a move with Sharp if its in the best interests of the team, no matter what he wants. The depth isn't as bad as people think, IF this team is willing to make use of it if need be.

People last year were trying to argue that we should trade Patrick Kane over Patrick Sharp and that Sharp was better and more valuable.

Now Patrick Sharp should be traded. Why are we trying to trade more core players that we won the Cup with and why are we trying to trade all star players? Why do people want to do unrealistic trades that no GM would consider doing. I don't care who our GM is...they wouldn't consider trading Sharp this year unless some stupid team calls up and offers us a huge overpayment that also helps us now and the future. That won't happen because the other team would have no incentive. I'd give almost no chance Sharp is moved over the next couple years.

Pretty much this. Although I do think some people are being silly regarding his slow start.

Sharp plays a good, solid Two Way game. He's a leader and still managed to score 8 points in 9 games while being bad...


now I wait for the "Whats wrong with Keith" thread.. he's a -5 and hasn't scored 10 pts already

the cap will drop a bunch next year, somone will likely need to be moved from the Bolland, Sharp, and Hammer group.

Maybe a coincidence but Sharp has been average since the new born. His best play was on the Kruger, Stalberg line last season when Toews was out. He was really bad in the playoffs.

It will be difficult without Sharp. I hope it is nothing more than 3 or 4 games.

This might have been his best game of the year. Very active in his offensive zone with several good chances. Quick to pounce on the puck and had a lot of energy. In a game where most of our players looked pretty poor, I though he and Leddy were the best guys on the ice for us.
