Porter and Stewart by far look like our best line out there.

Don't understand why Halak isn't starting this game, if anything he deserves it from last games performence.

Elliott needs some games or he is bound to get rusty.

Halak has had plenty of games. Don't see why this is an issue.

This game is turnover-turnover-turnover-turnover-turnover in the span of 1.5 seconds. The instant someone steals the puck it's stolen and re-stolen and re-stolen and re-stolen, so guys are getting caught going one direction and it's creating odd-man chances.

Would love to have Skinner on this team. I think he has more "McDonald" in him than Schwartz does.

We look like doo-doo. Not the #1 team that we are statistically speaking!

IMO, Backes hasn't been the same since that cheap shot by Pieters..

Maybe I'm looking into too much but he hasn't been that one-man wrecking machine since

There's been a handful of posters whose disappointment in Stewart's season has turned to straight-up venom towards the guy. But just as those individuals will look to criticize him at every opportunity, I think there's a few people at the other end of the spectrum who try a little too hard to see positives in his game, to find a silver lining in things like hustle and physicality which would be perceived as par for the course for an Oshie or a Backes. Not saying that's you; I've been guilty of it myself at times. It's natural to want to see the guy turn it around after showing so much promise at the end of last season, and part of me is always rooting for him simply because he's a Blue. I try to give Stewart credit for progress while at the same time holding him to a standard based on what I know he's capable of doing.

There are people, CuDi being one of them, who have an anti-Elliott agenda. That's the reason they don't understand why Halak doesn't get every start.

It's probably not a good sign when you have three skaters on the goal-line, and the goalie nowhere to be seen.

Keeping Halak fresh the playoffs makes total sense.

Actually, I always support Elliott, I think he's awesome and a total joy to watch. I just think Jaro should have started tonight because he is the #1 goalie and Elliott is the back-up.

Crombeen is pretty worthless and has been all season..

If Jaden takes Porter/Reeves' place in lieu of Crombeen I'll be p*****

The Blues are playing better this period, but everything still looks out of whack. It looks like the Blues are trying to stretch their breakout spacing, but aren't beating/eluding that first wave of fore-checkers to make it work.
