I think the board is overly hard on Zidlicky but that last game was pretty damn dreadful. He better not get re-signed this summer.

No I don't want Fayne in for Zidlicky. Fayne in for Volchenkov I'd understand, but not Zidlicky

i think if anything we overrate him. he is waaaayyy below average defensively. like MAB level. and while he is offensively skilled, the pp just aint workin. its not necessarily his fault but to say we cant take him out bc how "valuable" he is to the pp is garbage bc the pp stinks WITH HIM. and imo you dont take harrold out bc he just scored a goal on the pp. zids and harrold should be platooned and if either of them have a bad game you put the other in. thats how i think it should be. fayne has done nothing overly awful to deserve this.

Call me crazy but why not move Zidlicky to wing considering he plays well offensively in place of Barch and dress Fayne. What do you all think?

The way Harrold is playing and the way Greene can play PP duties and look fine, Zidlicky deserves to be benched.

Greene-Larsson
Salvador-Fayne
Volchenkov-Harrold

He's no Brent Burns.

If he was bigger and better on the boards, I wouldn't mind it, but he's small and the boards are his weak spot. His game doesn't suit playing wing or forward.

I don't know but technically it fixes the logjam on defense, while also improving the offense, he's better than Barch.

So now people want Zid benched after one rough game where in the past few weeks he has been playing solid hockey...

I disagree.

Barch is good at what he does. He's not spectacular, he's not going to wow you, but he's passable.

Zidlicky will play an offensive game and it will be negated by likely playing on the fourth line (let's be real he isn't playing over Clarkson or Bernier).

We're 13th in goals against and 23rd goals per game
We're 3rd in shots against and 21st in shots per game.


We're having insane trouble to get shots on net and even more to score goals. Let's sit a defence-man that is really close to get a point every 2 games and has 25 more shots on net than his following defence-man.


I'm speechless.

What's Brodeur's condition? Will he be back before next Monday night, when NJ visits Ottawa? We have tix, and were hoping to see our favourite goalie.

Practicing with the team today, if no set backs he should be good by the weekend if not sooner.

Yeah I know it's not ideal, but Barch can't even fight that well but defensively he isn't that bad so it's a trade off.

I wonder if it is possible to trade for Brent Burns this off-season. I wanted to trade him for Parise straight up before last season started and oddly enough seems like he doesn't fit as a D for the sharks.

Our defensive breakdowns are getting magnified by our inability to score more than 2 goals per game. let's call a spade a spade: Zids is not reliable defensively, but we need his offensive upside more than anything else. He's one of the very few guys that don't underachieve offensively.

We've outshot the opposing team the last 10 games.

Let's put it this way. I'd rather Barch in a fourth line role than Zidlicky.

yes yes zids and his 4.6 shooting percentage will be sorely missed. maybe if other guys played the pp (larsson) theyd, ya know, have more shots? ever think of that? also larsson just needs to shoot more in general. the idea that we "need" to keep zids in bc of those bogus numbers is laughable. im speechless.
