Biron is a better chirper than Valiquette.

Hahaha, nice.

Big game tonight. With a W, we're set up to string together a nice streak. With a L, we continue status quo. Let's do this!

glad to see girardi back and Gilroy still in there, he has played extremely well to stay in the line up!
I was actually surprised that Gilroy had a great game last game!

All coaches should care how their players are utilized.

If you watch Miller, even 2 games in he seems to control the play way better. You have a feeling that someone might make a play when that line is on. On the 4th line Boyle is fine, even good. As the #3 C, we're not cup contenders most likely. That's a huge hole.
What offense can he kill? His linemates have always been Fedotenko and Prust. His role is clearly to prevent the other team from scoring. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make by referencing to Bure and Ovechkin.

He had decent linemates this year and looked awful.

No he hasn't. His linemates weren't any better. His common linemates are Pyatt, Hagelin and Rupp this year.

2 of those 3 are not bad linemates for a 3rd line. Granted Hags has had a slow start, but both he and Pyatt are legit 3rd liners in this league.

And Boyle isn't a 3rd line player? Boyle's put up better numbers than Pyatt the last 2 years.

Using his 20 goal season is like saying Graves was a 50 goal scorer. You're including Boyle's best season and a down season for Pyatt.

Edit: Besides I'm going by what I see not just points. Pyatt plays like a 3rd liner (hell at times he played like a decent 2nd liner so far). Boyle offensively is a scrub.

Let's not make this another Boyle thread.

There's a thread for Brain Boyle talk.

We're 10 games in, we need to start building on getting above a .500 record.

Even if we were to go 22-12-4 the rest of the way, that still will put us in serious question for first round home ice advantage.

Even? I would be ecstatic finishing the season with a record like that.

Tonight's the night to show they're able to really contain high-power offenses and control the flow of a game against a legit opponent. Keep building off these wins, LGR!

It was proven last year that it really doesn't matter where you finish in the standings. The Caps took us 7 games and they werent anywhere near as good as we were, I was more scared of Ottawa.

With the schedule the way it is this year I suspect not many points will seperate #1 and #8.

Or #8 and #12 for that matter. Which is why they need to start stringing wins together

Also its about avoiding Pittsburgh. Just an example I'd rather be a 5 seed and face someone else than say a 2 seed and face Pittsburgh (but lets be honest Penguins will probably finish ahead of us)

The Stanley Cup Champion every year was the 5th seed or higher before last year, and it was the 4th or higher except for 95. Seriously one year doesn't prove ****.
