Of course trouba is on my fantasy team. As is Kronwall. Fml.

Anyway, I sincerely hope he's ok. Great player and im a big fan of his game.

The guy completely whiffed on a check & took a header into the boards. I honestly figured it was from an actual check when first hearing this.

Hopefully he's fine, but on another note, this probably all but guarantees that Byfuglien isn't getting traded at the moment.

As much as Carle was mostly hated here, I don't see any of our defensemen making passes like the one he made on Stamkos's winning goal last night. But he probably missed him, and got lucky, just as Carter does on his flubbed attempts that end up as goals, eh?

And, were any of the goals given up a result of Carles inability to play defense?

The guy made one play.... Wow!

Normally I'd agree with you but this teams needs to do something. It couldn't get much worse.

I think his line suggestion is certainly worth a shot. They can win faceoffs all day but if they can't score it doesn't really matter. At this point it's certainly worth a try to put Vinny up with G and then you can keep Schenn at center with Raffl and Simmonds on his wings.

Voracek-Giroux-Lecavelier
Raffl-Schenn-Simmonds
McGinn-Couturier-Read
Talbot-Hall-Rinaldo

at least until Hartnell comes back and then you need to move things around a bit.

I also don't get why you get defensive when he repeats "think this through" back at you... makes you look immature. Saying it in the first place made you look arrogant as well, this is a difference of opinion not just right and wrong.

Man, it must be nice to have both Crosby and Malkin on your team. It's not fair.

that part is just because i like making fun of him because he thinks hes more important than he is, id do it every day of the week if i could

as far as the lines, you might get offense on that line but youre definitely sacrificing winning faceoffs on every other line. we have trouble enough with possession as it is.

What's Giroux's FO percentage? I don't remember him being anything special at it historically.

Well considering the lack of offense right now, I'd say that it's worth the risk, especially since if it doesn't work they can just switch them back.

He took more than 100 faceoffs more than the next closest guy last year and won 54.5%. He was about 54% the year before.

This year he's hovering just above 50%.

He's been one of the league's best centres in the dot since 2011.

Does he really? I was actually really impressed with Raffl vs Pitt. I didn't realize he had a physical side to his game. He was making clean passes and creating offense toom

You kind of ruined your credibility by saying you would prefer the likes of Shelley or Rosehill over Nodl, Wellwood, etc.
