Nashville is not a good team. That much was clear from most of this game.

Agreed. He just redeemed himself by getting the SO winner.

The standings disagree with this statement.

So, we need to get to the 3rd seed and play Chicago, or try desperately to get the 6th seed and play Dallas.
I'm hoping for the 3rd seed. Dallas would probably be an easier opponent than Chicago but having home ice in the first and possibly second round would be a huge boost. Either way, I'm happy as long as we make the playoffs. If the team keeps playing like they did tonight, especially Niemi, I like our chances of getting the 3rd seed.

True, true. I think that this time around we might be able to beat the Hawks, considering their poor defense and special teams and goaltending, and also that Toews is injured and might have reservations when he plays us again.

This is the kind of all-around effort they've been missing over the last few weeks. If they can keep this up they'll make the playoffs, maybe even retake the division lead.
Word. Nemo is capable of playing so much better than he has, Havlat makes us a ton more dangerous, Thornton is ****ing awesome, and Demers and Braun are looking studly.

What I love about the defense right now is that everyone can play with anyone.

Just wait until Todd says Colin White and Handzus have to play to stay fresh..

I'll never understand that, because you'd think vets would need less ice time to be comfortable.

It's be easier to play the Stars, but at the same time we'd probably get pretty roughed up in a series against Dallas. And then, if we were to beat Dallas, we'd draw St. Louis in the second round and die. If we win the third seed, we have a less physical series, and then if we win we wouldn't have a chance of playing St. Louis potentially until the WCF.

That'd be the plan. The team on the ice right now, is the team we'll ice for the rest of the year, baring injuries.

Havlat (Mach9) is one helluva skater.

Can anyone make line charts judging speeds?

Like just outta pure observation

e.g.
29-12-9
slow-fast-fast

despite his board play and SO goal, still thought clowe floated a little at times. especially at one point when he was closest player of either team to the puck and got beat to it by coasting towards it along the boards. still beastly with the puck along the boards, and maybe a little encouraging for him to get the SO win.

niemi saved us in that game more than once.

havlat looked good and the coaching staff relied on him in multiple situations despite just coming back from injury. his return was much needed.

06 Canes #2
07 Ducks #2

I know many of you think we can beat the odds, but I don't understand why when you also think we suck

Oh yeah he did. Horrible.

But like Niemi, he got his ultimate chance, and seized it. That's exactly what's been lacking. Niemi did more so than Clowe, but hey... baby steps back to cluchtiness.

Except for they're 10 points better than SJ and have a stable coach. And they play like they've got a lot of 1st rounders with something to proove.

Such clarity.

Much appreciated.

Team speed has increased with Havlat in the line up.

Pav's is not slow anymore.

JT is above average even fast sometimes when he needs to be. He just slows up in the O zone play.

EDIT: Oh, and 61 should say "faster"

what i thought also after wingels got injured and ferriero was put in. not that im upset with his play since being plugged into the 4th line.

Wingels-Desjardins-Galiardi

even Winchester with Desi/Gali sounds like a pretty tough/depth scoring 4th line.

would like to stay away from handzus for a while

I'd be perfectly happy if Handzus got scratched a few more times.

Standings are deceptive. They said the Ducks were the 4th best team in the West last year. That was never the case.

Pavelski improved his stride a lot over the summer, but speed-wise, he is still a very slow skater.
Thornton isn't a fast skater, and if you start going into the territory of slow - below average - average - above average - fast, it becomes pretty meaningless with that many categories. He's closer to average than fast.
