Agreed. Having two shifty playmakers setting up Patches is probably a good thing.

You could see Briere looking to shoot more last night. If he gets that shot going along with his very deft play making then he's going to be fun as hell to watch.

I don't want to prove anything, I just want to clear things up. The guy was wrong so...

You missed the whole point, one, two, three or four, it's a coincidence.
I said only one because another poster that quoted you said it, so figured he had checked it. But point stands, it's a coincidence. So no, I'm not wrong.

pas le temps de niaiser.

MT had to call him out last year if you remember. It looks like MT will have to do it again if he cant step up.

It's not a bad thing that they were tried out. That's what training camp and exhibition games are for.
But if challenging and pushing them to see how much they can give you, and evaluate where they're at, than why do this ''meeting'' and then use them on the 3rd line?

I don't have an issue with them being given bigger roles. I have an issue with ''analysis'' that question the EGG line without looking at the situation they were put in.
It's as if I told Beaulieu to go on the first pairing, play 20min a game, on the PP and on the PK. After he not so surprisingly looks bad, I say ''hhmmm, I'm worried about this kid''. It's a crappy analysis.

If the EGG line looks bad 10 games into the season as the 3rd line, then okay, it's warranted.

But I think it's pretty telling that they looked rather ordinary playing in an increased role all camp, and when they're given their 3rd line role again, they dominate. I mean really, I don't understand how people can't see this.

I'm not trying to make Eller sound like a bad guy, cause I like him very much! But I always seem to notice that Eller doesnt like to pass the puck to Galchenyuk for some reason. I'm not saying he doesnt pass the puck, it just seems that in some situations where it looks like a non-brainer to pass the puck, he simply doesnt..Almost looks like he wants to make things happen on his own at times. But at the same time, its no secret that Eller can hold on too the puck to long sometimes... Well what do I know, they're the pro's

This board just doesn't improve with time, in fact it's getting worst.

Galchenyuk do seems to be more of the perimeter player compared to Gallagher's constant, nonstop and eternal drive-the-net attitude.

Overall, he was a big plus until his concussion. Since coming back he's only played a handful of real games plus a few pre-season games. Judging him on this recent tiny sampling is shortsighted.

I love what I saw with Nygren, but he isn't a legit NHL defenseman yet. For all his obvious potential, there are way too many gaps in his defense to allow him to play regular minutes in an NHL season. Right now, he'll cost us more goals than he'll create. Another year or two and sure, it's possible that he, Beaulieu, Pateryn, maybe even Dietz, will make Diaz redundant. But not yet.
Good post. We are quite rich with D prospects. Which reminds me of my main idea:

Bergy has to start trading redundant prospects for young prospects that we need in our cup window.


He has to start being more active this year. If Diaz, Dumont and a pick can get us a big young top 6 winger, or a big young top 4 D man, then do it.

This is Bergy's year. He had better be active, or we blow the Price, Subby, Max and Galchy cup window.

Bergy needs to start trading. We will see if he does.

Diaz, Dumont and a pick.......

Nobody is trading a big, young top 6 forward for our junk. Dumont has absolutely no trade value and Diaz has very little value.

Galchenyuk is going to be a playmaking center with a laser wrister, you stick a guy on his line that drives the net and scores dirty goals. Having Galchenyuk spend his shift driving the net is a waste of his talents.

Or the hands, or offensive awareness.

I wouldn't call him a perimiter player, he finds the openings so he can be an option. He does crash the net as well, but it's not his only move.

Because if the EGG line didn't dominate in the pre-season then the sky's falling and it's Eller's fault by default because Halak has always been better than Price and Ian Schultz never amounted to anything.
