Prust has been doing well on that line though.

An agenda of watching more than the PP? Open your eyes, without Markov both of them looked bad and would get exploited by a team that wasn't exhausted. Most here see the score and **** their pants, nothing more to their opinion than a stat sheet, feel proud you are in that group.

It was actually an injury, that tends to happen in hockey, you should watch more of it.

Yeah, that two year injury - an injury that apparently severely affected his decision-making as well as his fitness/conditioning. And not only that, it was so bad that he has missed, what, 8 games total in the past two seasons? ...

Nice attack tossed in on the end there, too.

Open your eyes, you're an overly dramatic and defensive bipolar poster with an agenda. It's okay, we support you - and the others - regardless. This year it's about family.

I suppose there are no readily available stats on Ott's winning percentage. His only contribution today was obliging a better player to sit for 5 minutes.

You are clearly on this board WITH THE SOLE PURPOSE of defending Gauthier's move controversial moves, which Emelin and Diaz weren't...but Kaberle was. Keep defending the undefendable as we will see who will be the odd man out the day we go at 6 d-men. So great Gauthier won a trade! Even the most pathetic GM's did. Name him in the hall of fame. Doesn't stop the fact that the guy made a joke out of this organization last year and had to go.

Talking about embarassment, please comeback to me the day you have just as many opinions the day a trade or deal is made instead of waiting for the results and THEN have an opinion on it....Then we'll talk. Oh and you can also forget that even for your brother Gauthier, I also kept saying that every GM's work is analyzed during and AFTER his tenure as GM.....but you can disregard that as it totally annihilate your point about me and how I saw Gauthier's work.

Right, but it's not really about Prust and Eller.

Let's be honest.

It's about maximizing Gallagher's and Galchenyuk's development.

Prust is creating space for them and covering their back. Eller would increase their offensive production potentially but wouldn't protect them as well.

What's more impactful?

Dropyourgloves will give you "decisons" for just about every fight, I think.

After being at the game today, I can tell you it's Prust. Scott was picking at Gallagher before the faceoff (may not have been shown on TV) and scott pushed Gallagher to the ice. The refs move Gallagher to the LW and put Prust to the RW to prevent more drama before the puck drops and of course Prust drops the gloves and takes on Scott. Prust is not only making space for the two Gallys, but he's also protecting them....i would keep him on that line.

What Eller should have is some time on the PP but mostly on the PK if he ends up on the 4th line. That way, you still compensate him and show him confidence for the rest of the year. I begin to slowly but surely give up on Armstrong on the PK and slowly but surely....he is not convincing me to give him another contract next season.

So was Bourque just injured for all of those years he was inconsistent in Chicago and Calgary?

For all the MT haters who wished we got Bob Hartley instead, remember that the Flames still only have one victory so far.

gallagher seems to have that desharnais work ethic with just a bit more a of a scoring touch.

I didn't watch the game because of the time zone, but do you mean that Prust fought Steve Ott rather than John Scott?

Agreed. They are playing like the Moen - Eller - Kostitsyn line last year and we all know what happened after they were broken up. Keep them together

That's the thing though. No contest that Bourque has talent. He showed it on every team he's played. But teams had against his consistency....which is great to see A POSTER coming hard on people about Bourque when what we're actually seeing now is THE GOOD Bourque....Will the bad one arrive soon? We still have no idea, NO MATTER HOW GREAT HE'S PLAYING NOW. But you do hope that there will be no inconsistent Bourque anymore....That's the wish. That he FINALLY gets it.

There shouldnt be any negative thing to say in a 6-1 game, but Cole still sucks!

But nice to see Eller and Bourque score! Galchenyuk is playing really well too but he just cant buy a goal! lol Armstrong made a great play there too!

Who are you talking about? Bourque has only played 7 games in his career, all in Montreal, and all have been awesome, except for the ones affected by injury.

Sorry I mean Ott. I was thinking of when Scott pushed Subban in the third.
