And the second half of last year. The confusing thing to me is after his stint in the minors his play picked up its just that nothing is going in for him or anyone on the team.

Craig Smith has awesome hands, speed and can actually control the puck some. Why is he not producing? Everything seems to be there and the past 10 games or so he has be playing much better but the numbers are not coming.
One thing I continually notice about Smith is he's so light on the puck. Doesn't take much effort at all to separate him from the puck, and he usually ends up on his keyster afterwards.

I'm a big believer in addition by subtraction. Unfortunately I don't see any reason why any other team would want Lazy K. so I'm afraid we're stuck with him.

No major FUBARS but hes gonna need at least another year maybe two before he could make the leap.

With the experience he is getting now, he should be the first call up when Gaustad breaks a nail next year.

I guess that is the only good thing about this stretch. getting good expereince these kids can take back with them with coach's notes on things to imporve on.

Beck seems like a good fit next year. The others need seasoning, yes, but the potential is there and exciting.

One thing that worries me is all the youth we will have in the next few years--I don't think we will be because of 35-6-8, but I don't want to be Edmonton and have all this awesome forward talent and suck because we are playing boys vs men.

THIS!! Right now, the Preds are the softest and one of the worst passing teams in the NHL, maybe all of hockey. With all of the injuries, should there be concern about the strength/conditioning coaches? I know NOTHING is going to happen with the behind the bench coaching staff to correct the passing/shooting problems : (

Not necessarily. Amnesty buyout.

I would start it, but since I haven't started one all season with my luck it would cause us to go on a five game tear.
