Penner, Lewis and King combined, aka 3 of our left wings tonight, cool.

Who needs Gagne's 5 points, when you have so many dynamic options for left wing

I hope that's not where the motivation would be coming from...I'd like to think they'd be motivated by looking at the standings and seeing themselves in the cellar.

They're 5 points behind the Stars for 8th with 3 games in hand, while missing 3 of their top 6 d-men. They've played the least amount of home games of any team in the league with 4 compared to 9 games on the road, 11 after this current road trip. Being 1 game under .500 is not bad considering all that. There's a reason the players aren't panicking, unlike some fans.
Plus, any motivation is good motivation.

No kidding, dumbest thing I've read all day.

Unless I missed something, he was good enough to be an NHL-caliber player for at least 6 months last year, and scored some pretty big goals in the playoffs. But then again, if King isn't an NHL player, then he should probably take half of our roster with him.

It's the 'what have you done for me lately' syndrome that seems to be spreading around here.

Right....I'm glad you feel good about everything.

Nice to see we're all pumped again about being the 8th place champions.

I wouldn't care if they got motivated by watching The Smurfs, just get a win.

Every dog has his day. What Dwight King did in 2012 is in the past. What he's doing now is nothing. I'm fine with him staying in the lineup with limited minutes in order to get him going, but if he continues to provide nothing out there, then you have to question exactly what is he doing in the lineup. So far, he's done nada.

Brad Richardson scored a big goal to tie the game against the Canucks to send Game 5 into OT. I don't see many clamoring to have Brad Richardson back in the lineup. Again, what was done in the past is just that, the past.

I don't feel good when they lose, but I'm also not going to panic because they're 5 points from a playoff spot with what they have had to endure so far this season. I, along with everyone else, witnessed what this team is capable of, and I know they can get back to that level. If they are still 5 points out of the playoffs at the end of March after all the home games they'll play that month, than I'll start panicking.

I, for one, would love to see Richie get a chance to play.

Does it really matter if they finished 1st, 5th, or 8th and went on to win the Cup? Are we supposed to say, "Yeah they won the Cup, but they finished 8th. Sorry, but that's just not good enough. Now if they finished 1st and won the Cup, than a Cup win would be worth a d**n."?

Right, cause every year we should expect them to squeak into the playoffs and storm their way to the cup. How about some consistency? How about being a little ticked off they look NOTHING like the team that went 16-4 in the post-season last year?

I think they've looked similar at times.

I do agree with you that it'd be nice to be a little more consistent but I'm trying to think of a team in the league that doesn't have it's share of peaks and valleys.

An aberration.

Remember when Cheechoo scored 50 goals? or when Jim Carey won the Vezina?

King isn't an NHL player. He isn't good enough offensively to play in the top 6, and doesn't bring enough grit, energy, or defensive prowess to play in the bottom 6.

Who gives Yakapov a nice "Hello" first... Nolan, King or Fraser?
