It's frustrating because his lousy performance last season may have been preventable. He was out of shape and didn't look ready to play after the lockout.
Somebody on the telecast mentioned how Richards was "carrying a suitcase around for 4 months and was instrumental in the labor deal"

What a bunch of BS.

Alright. Feeling a win tonight, but I have a game of my own so I'll probably only catch up to the start of the 2nd.

We either win well, or get scored on early and crumble, IMO.
Well, I was thrilled to see the score when I got off the ice, but I wonder if I didn't inadvertently make a sacrifice to the hockey god's for last nights win; got a nice stick to the gums last night, cracked a couple of chiclets and cut my lip up. Got 6 stitches last night and I have dental work tomorrow. Maybe I'll be hopped up on vicodin for our next win.

So Devils and Philly next. Play like yesterday, possibly with some production from other lines, 2 wins might not be out of the question.

But who would we play in his place? Nash and Hagelin are out and we need wingers that can actually play the puck. He'll be down with the Pack once one of them comes back from injury.
Stralman was probably our least effective player last night. Thoughts?

And his pass to Richie that went off the post was pretty special as well.

And Stepan quietly did a very good job on draws in the D zone and when on the PP. Winning those draws on the PP leads to possession and not that inevitable clear that seemed to start every PP last year.

This is not true. They are off to a slow start but this is pretty much the same team as last year with Grabowski replacing Ribiero and they have the best PP in the league. It's a good win on the road.

One of the best games I've seen them play in a long time. They were all over the Caps like white on rice right after the 5 on 3 pk. Gotta build on it Saturday nite vs the Devils.

Moore had a really good game last night and was taking all the big draws when he was on the ice. However, he like Boyle is best when used on the 4th line and on the PK. He doesn't have enough offense to get 12 - 15 minutes ES a night.

He took two penalties on plays that he was beat cleanly. He's better than that. I don't mind him either; he had a bad night.

Stralman didn't even have a bad night. He was solid and shooting the puck whenever he could, something uncharacteristic of this d-corps. The two penalties he'd like to forget, esp when the first was all Laich exaggerating, but still not a bad game really.

I'm also really curious as to what exactly happens when Hags/Nash are back. There will be 3 spots open with 6 people aiming for them. Dorsett, Boyle, and Dominic Moore have spots locked down for the bottom 6, in my opinion. But theres 3 spots open for 5 players. Pyatt, Pouliot, Fast, Zucc, and Miller. Would AV use Miller in a checking line? Would Dominic Moore play 3C and have Boyle shift back to center? What does AV want out of this line? When Hags and Nash come back, I suspect trades and/or waivings, because that 3rd line really needs to be worked out.

Well, if there is a God, Pouliot will be gone; he is just awful...

If I were to guess, i'd say Miller and Fast go to the A. Pyatt, Pouliot, Zucc all stay. With Pyatt and Pouliot rotating in and out of the lineup

The faceoff interference penalty against the Caps was pretty harsh, as well.

It was just some forgettable poor officiating. The team played really well, played Torts hockey, I don't know why people are miffed.

What is better than Torts hockey without Torts? Honestly. He got this team to win. Having a coach who can implement the same system but not be a hot headed SOB may do wonders for this team. They looked worlds better than any other game this season including the LA win.

the cap is going up 6 m next year, and probably 6 the following year, then 4 the year after...

How much in cap space are we really going to need?

not to mention the fact that the caps had the power play for most of the 1st, and a part of the second (including a 5 on 3)... THAT is why this is so impressive

Lundqvist, Callahan, Girardi, Brassard, and Stralman will all be demanding raises.

Even if you only consider raising each of them by a million a year, that's still 5 million added to the cap before RFA deal for MDZ.
