Remember when Aebischer would do front dives in front of the net (i.e with his head going towards the slot) ? Ah memories...
I don't know if it's testimony to Price's play this season or Budaj's underwhelming performances, but I don't remember the discrepancy in my level of confidence between a starter and a backup ever being so large. I hope the players don't feel that way.
Not that I disagree with you in terms of my worries for tonight even though I thought he was good enough to win a game like this one LAST YEAR, but I think Roy was quite a bit better than Racicot. I envy your mountain dew-drinking dubstep-tolerating youth!
Therrien on the line changes:
-Trying something else
-Doesn't know if it'll work
-Will change if it doesn't -The purpose is to try to get some players going (read Cole, DD, Max)
Didn't it seem that they were jussst starting to get going last game? Great timing Mikey! Hopefully his ways work. I gave him a B on the HIO rating only because he hasn't tried Eller between Patch/Cole + didn't beat up Carlyle.
Eller - Galchenyuk - Cole
Moen - Prust - Armstrong
I have liked what I have seen from Eller on the wing, one way or another he should be in the top 6. Galchenyuk and Pleks will be here for the long term so Eller need to be a winger, that is all there is to it.
I like those lines, Cole has been skating harder and moving his feet. I think he will turn it around. Pacioretty is the one I worry about, he has shown nothing.
