That was kinda the point of the 2yr contract

Yup. That's how it's normally done when you know you have more to offer than you've shown so far.

At least the shot went in, so his aim is getting better.
It's actually getting worse, that's why he didn't bing it straight back out off the post.

Can you imagine how many goals Landy would score with Staz setting him up?

So what's our D next game with Wilson out?

Hunwick - EJ
Hejda - O'byrne
Zanon - Barrie?

Yikes

Agreed. If Avs were healthy, this looks like a good way to start

McGinn-Dutch-PAP
Lando-Stazz-Jones
McCleod-Mitchell-Kobasew
Hejduk-Olver-Bords

EJ-Hunny
Hejda-Wilson
Zanon-Barrie

Of course, that's a big IF.

It's funny because I hated Parenteau his first season. His marked improvement last year won me over. I can't help root for the guy still. His goal total is definitely surprising because he's always been pass first.
He hasn't had a lot of goal scorers goals, but rather smart positioning, a bit of luck and perseverance around the net. He's been a good influence on the team and Duchy, that's for sure. I love how calm he is with the puck.

Good win, but despite the perfect home record this team is still a hot mess defensively.

Nice to see McGinn get off the schneid. You could tell he was elated...and relieved.

I felt that during the game the team was solid defensively save a few mistakes.

You make it sound like Wilson's a top 4 dman. Our D is still the same as before. It's EJ plus a 60% chance of good Hejda showing up and the rest are all.....wild cards to put it nicely.

No one is gonna say "oh man, if Wilson was in the line-up tonight we might've had a chance to win" lol.

My favourite moment was when Duchene layed Hall the ******* out.

Wilson wasn't top 4, but our other D aren't even NHL calibre right now.

Just watched the game, most encouraging thing I saw was that Sgarbossa was very calm out there, made smart and quick passes and wasn't a liability. I'm encouraged for his future.

Wilson can skate a little bit and make the occasional pass
Hunwick was good today but I don't want to be playing with fire giving him these kinds of minutes for too long.

Love Ginner's game. Whether it's a big hit, a forecheck at blazing speed, or a dangerous scoring chance, he makes his presence known on every shift.

With a little bit of puck luck he'd be over a PPG, without really hitting his stride yet. Hopefully it's his breakout year.

Offensively I thought Duchene, McGinn and Parenteau were our best forwards. Duchene is continuing to play a very strong two-way game with more than adequate hockey IQ. I can't say the same for Stastny, but I am extremely pleased with Duchene thus far this season...and I don't feel it is a fluke what-so-ever.

Mitchell is doing a great job. Hopefully they keep Van Der Gulik up and send down Bordeleau...and send down Barrie as well, or else play him over O'Byrne.

Duchene is starting to play like the stud that we all expected that he'd be. I'm very happy that I kept him in my keeper league and didn't give up on him. I wasn't thrilled about him shooting the puck after the whistle but when I saw it live I was paying more attention to the clock than the horn. After seeing the replay other than the fact that he was rubbing salt in the wound it wasn't as bad as I had initially thought. Also glad that PAP is doing well for you guys, IMO he was underrated on the Islanders, everyone kept saying that he was a product of Tavares alone, but the guy has a lot of puck skill. Anyhow congrats on the win but hopefully it's your last one against us this year!

First...why do you guys keep typing Avs as Aves? It looks weird.

Second gotta love in a game where he plays well...again Stastny still gets crapped on.

Third...it's about time Duchene started playing this well.

At least when he is injured.

And let's see if the Sherm will use one of the 2 allocated free buy-outs on him.

David Jones will hit a classic David Jones hot streak with just enough time left in the season to save his contract.

I sat about a row behind the Edmonton bench yesterday. After that scrum at the end of the game, PAP was talking so much **** to their bench. It was pretty hilarious. Hejda also came by and gave them the death glare, and he's a pretty big dude up close.

Duchene was a monster. The hit on Hall was great.

EJ played great, and he actually did get a lot of his shots through to the net.

Hopefully Wilson isn't hurt too bad. He's one of the few defensemen who can move the puck.
