Can't help but notice they're wearing the 3rd's again tonight. Maybe management noticed they play better with them?

Because as mediocre as he may be, he adds an element of size and physical play that isn't found in the top-9 otherwise. A roster full of one-dimensional and soft offensive forwards isn't going to achieve much in a highly physical, big, and grinding western conference.

That's exactly what's happened to the team the last three years and because the owners and Feaster see the team just a couple of wins away from a playoff berth, they've never seen the incentive to make the necessary changes. The organization simply can't afford to let that happen for a fourth time.
I know, even 8th place is a long reach.. I hope they realize this sooner than later

IMO comeau should play with some skill, because he's been a useless 4th liner so far. Maybe he can grab a few points, and we really need bigger bodies throughout the lineup.

The team is looking much more confident in front of Mcdonald. Not a lot of scrambling going on, which is nice to see.

I don't know if Cervenka will be any more useful on that line

I hate him on the pk, I don't get why Hartley uses him over Glencross.

Please take Comeau of the third line, and give Baertschi some PP time.

Thanks Hartley!
