The team has to go out to center ice right now and make a sacrifice to the hockey gods.

For my own curiosity since I think your point of view is generally interesting... why keep Schenn? What has he done to show he is worthy?

I acknowledged that in my first post. He's not even earning the $3.75M contract, you're not the least bit worried about him earning $8.25M the next 8 years after this one?

Schenn brothers for something. Hartnell+ for something. Mez demoted and stays there.

G is only one for me, if it makes sense I trade anyone if it adds skill. Some we are stuck with due to Holmers contracts, but I listen to anything. The skill level by our forwards is non existent other than G. D is even worse

Almost everyone. Keep some of the most talented young guys, ship out everyone else.

One ****ing bad season where the whole team sucks? Didn't realize that Giroux was the only one sucking here. No one, as of right now, deserves their pay. The idea that you pin it right on Giroux is nonsense. End of ****ing story.

Probably discussing Ayn Rand or something.
G probably made one of his inspirational statements about how they are going to be great and then patted him on the shoulder while saying under his breath " Run along now old man...go back to your trophy wife and millions and thanks for the contract."

I don't want to trade Couturier, but the dude is seriously showing 0 offensive potential.

Not pinning it on him, but this is his team, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. He deserves a huge amount of blame for his non-existent production. Furthermore, the only reason I'd trade him is because of his contract. If he was still going to be an RFA this offseason, my outlook would be very different.

Question: Because Cam Janssen scored against the Flyers, does that make it certain that Holmgren will be pressing hard to acquire him?

People need to stop looking at individuals as far as the offensive production problems. It isn't anyone one player, it's the entire team just sucking it up.

We have 22 goals this year...only 6 teams in the league have scored below 40 so far.

Steen and Ovie have 5 more goals than our entire team. Or to make it worse, Steen and Hertl are out-scoring the entire Flyers team.

Just too freakin funny

Depending on the return, I wouldn't be against it.
