Good. After the last game, this place looked like we were going to the AHL. Good to see we are back on the TML track

What I loved yesterday was how Read left the celebration to go help and help Downie

This could turn into a nasty season series with the Caps similar to 2012 with the Pens.
Bring it on

Very important win after what happened on Sunday. Delighted they were able to keep that 3 goal cushion. 2 more important games coming up, but the team look better now than they have at any part of this season.

That pass by Coburn to voracek on the first flyers goal was an absolutely beautiful pass. Probably one of the better ones I've ever seen him make. We need that more from him. Consistency has been the issue all year, lets build off this game. Giroux still needs an elite winger. I'm can't believe how many times he sets people up with wide open nets and they miss it. Unreal.

It would be easier to just try and sign Vanek or Gaborik this offseason

Braydon Coburn is a number one defenseman in this league when he plays the way he did last night. He was the best player on the ice for either team.

I thought B. Schenn was having his best game of the season. He was very noticeable all night, with many great passes.
All of your points are good, but I'd like to second this about Coburn. He was great yesterday and has been pretty consistent over the last month+. If he keeps playing this way, to me, he gets the Ashbee.

He's been really dependable, and I honestly can't imagine what our D would look like without him at this point.

Is Voracek the sniper we saw last year? Or is he turning into a puck moving playmaker to set up G?...Why not both?

Rinaldo was hitting everything in sight last night, he really got away from that over the last month, hopefully he can get back to that.

I'd be more than happy with both.

Feels good to be at a nice win. The last few games I went to they blew leads agsinst the Pens. I love the Read - Couturier - Downie line. Couturier's continuing to gain confidence in the offensive zone and had 2 really nice scoring chances... Holtby made a nice save off the one.

This team needs to win both against Columbus now, or at least 3/4 points. Would put them ahead of Toronto for the final playoff spot.

Coburn looks awesome. I think he'd be the perfect partner for somebody like Weber or Pietrangelo. Not getting either of those guys, though.

Raffl is a stud too. Big fan. Giroux has also come alive so that helps. Giroux is just really, really weak this year and gets tossed around a lot.

I'm just glad Homer didn't trade Coburn away in the offseason for a bunch of picks, or whatever the rumor was at the time. Guys that can play 20+ minutes a night don't grow on trees!

I've always felt he was sorely underrated. Sure, he makes boneheaded plays some times, but most players do. Just because he's not the franchise defensemen we're all clamoring for doesn't mean that he's not valuable to the team.

How does he bring nothing? He's faster than both of them and definitely smarter than Rosehill. Vandevelde also can kill penalties. Did you not see his good work on the 5 minute PP last night? I like how the guy has played and is something the 4th line really needed.

Neither Rosehill or McGinn can PK. With their non-existent or limited offensive and defensive ability, it leaves them pretty useless in a bottom-6 role.

And how bout your boy Raffl? Still bring nothing to the team?

Vande Velde is also a damn good faceoff guy on top of being a nice skater, decent on D and able to PK... he can play 7-10 a night regularly without being a liability. Which gives the top lines more of a rest as opposed to Rosehill with his 3-4.

Vande Velde averages 11 mins a night in his NHL career... Rosehill 5.

And yeh, he was good on the PP last night as well!

3 less NHL points than Rosehill in 74 less games.

The kind of guy teams should have on the 4th line, when Lecav is back a possible 4th of:

Raffl-Vande Velde-Hall would be awesome frankly... though Raffl really does not deserve to play out of the top 9 with his recent play.

Rinaldo played a better game last night... but he has not looked half as good this year as last.

Not saying Rosehill is completely redundant... he is better than Shelley or Cote as he can actually play a small amount of hockey, but he should be playing maybe 25-30 games a year.

Scored 30 with Briere and Leino.

Scored 25 and 22 goals in successive seasons with an offensively hampered Nashville.

So what's your point? Also, if you didn't notice, he had 3 assists in the one game, and he had the primary assist for all of them, which means he made them happen more than anyone else.

He played on the PP because Schenn was hurt, so what? He did fine, and we got 2 goals from that power play too, with him getting an assist. Erskine is a defenseman and I'm pretty sure Vandevelde wasn't on the ice when the altercation happened with Wilson.

So you're trying to prove what?

I think we both saw what happens to the first line (or any line in general) when only 2/3rds of the line is pulling it's weight offensively.

Your fascination with plugs like Rosehill is astounding.
