I hope you're right about Feaster. But to be honest it's more far-fetched to think that an intelligent man with at least some competent staff would be making these moves in order to try and win actual hockey games.

Especially when the key to success in the NHL is having strength, size and skill down the middle.
You might be on to something.. But can we really expect Feaster to come up with something this good? I hope this is the case.. I really hate losing on purpose or "tanking" for a good draft pick but with a shortened season like this I don't mind it as much.. If the players get used to a losing attitude we're gona end up like the Oilers... Having all kinds of talented players and still can't win any games.

This is a pretty crazy theory lol. I wonder what the main board would have to say about this.

I'd rather we quit making fools of ourselves on the main board. The last two threads have been bad enough already.

No, I felt he performed well, just like Street when he was here. He wasn't winning many faceoffs though (but then again who was?). Probably an attempt to get that tougher tough guy that will do something if our goalie gets run over.

Seems like a crackpot theory to me lol, to me it looks like Feaster and co. are just trying to make something happen with this team, anything.

Recent line rushes have Comeau on the 3rd line and Cervenka scratched. Maybe they are tanking...

That's flameaholic, I'm still not sure if he's a flames fan or just making these doomsday threads everytime we lose a game.

Cervanka not doing much these days. As a pending UFA, they need to make a choice of signing him for next year or perhaps trading him for a draft pick.

But unless his play improves, it's hard to imagine anyone giving much up for him.

If Cervenka is scratched than this management group is more incompetent than I previously though. At least the guy has put up some points.

There are players, Comeau being one that deserve to be scratched first.

Doesn't matter, he's shown signs of how good he can be.. Comeau's just been useless. He had one good shift on that Begin goal but thats it... Maybe Cervenka hasn't done much lately but he's still the better choice than Comeau

Cervenka has been fine, he is clearly slower than he was in the KHL last year and most likely due to missing so much time this year. It would be stupid to move him.

Seems like some odd combinations to me. I guess Hartley is simply trying anything new at this point to try and find a spark of some sort. My guess is if Sven is good to go, the lines will stay like that. If he's not ready I guess Cervenka takes his spot. Interesting to see Sven playing on the RW as well... And Cammalleri playing center seems like a bad idea, we've tried this before and it hasn't worked. He's to small for center we need him sneaking in on the wings.

Um... Comeau being forced at centre, vs. putting Cervenka between Hudler & Baertschi?

Well, time to put in the towel, if Comeau is at center, then we're screwed.
