I don't know if you know how an argument works if I bring something up and someone argues about it... It usually is brought up in the reply.

Since this is a Lovejoy thread I thought I should talk about Lovejoy. But I didn't really have anything more to say. Other than that he has really improved in terms of being physical. That's something that wasn't really a part of his game at all before. But it's good that he's improving because it is a good match with Fowler.
Well, that does it. BM better go and get us a #1C because losing faceoffs can lead to losing games. Especially if they come after a Lovejoy icing. Quick, somebody go make a post and see if Jumbo Joe is available. I'd feel much more comfortable with Getzlaf on the 2nd line in the playoffs. Or, based on those %s maybe he belongs on the 4th line?

Someone said icings don't matter I said icing do matter when you have options to that are open. Someone said icings don't matter in playoffs I posted a video of us losing a game partially in part to a terrible icing.

More irony.

You bring up icings, people respond. You wonder why. You bring up icings, people respond. You wonder why.

Yes, but I don't want salaries to play a role in the decision. It's more of a "what is better question".

Why don't we just waive the movie theater icees?

He with salaries retained it is a much harder decision

You'd think Lovejoy has played like Sbisa has this year given some of the complaining going on

I love Lovejoy, he get's such a bad rep around here but other than the occasional bad icing he has been solid, IMO.

I think there are better options out there but at the same time I'm not ready to sell the farm to get it, I'd rather wait a year and see what our needs are after the playoffs. I'm not completely sold on this being an "all in" year.

That's been my point all along. There are no holes I feel need filling before the playoffs. However, this summer is a whole 'nother ball game. With our surplus of D, surplus of prospects, and surplus of picks I expect BM to play let's make a deal before the draft. This, after seeing just how the team fares through the playoffs.

Agreed. I feel like then and only then can we properly address any concerns. This feels more like a transitional year. ex. 2005-06

This (bolded part).
Lovejoy actually is leading the team in hits by a wide margin. He is also first on blocked shots and overall is very valuable to us.

However, i`d like us to get some upgrade on the right side on top4 to let players play their natural side, but i can also understand what you and Eddie are saying about waiting a little. Will be interesting to see, i`m more or less ok with both options (unless we trade Etem + Silfverberg + 1st for Despres )

Big game guy. And pretty much the only defenseman who did NOT ice the puck tonight.

I'm thinking of starting a thread to see if we can make a trade to upgrade Ben's partner. He's out there hitting everything in sight, making great plays and covering for his partner's mistakes. I'm not comfortable going into the playoffs with Fowler if he is going to make mistakes like tonight.

Now let me go find a youtube of the play to post and harp on it for 2 or 3 days. Is that how you do it?
