Well, I'll Jaskin...but I don't think he'll be too keen. You see, we already got one!

I'll be in section 331 tonight with my Alex Pie Home Blue Jersey on and look forward to seeing this Jaskin kid out there.

Uh, I wonder what the excuse will be if the 'note stink up the joint tonight against a "tired" Canuck team that played last night in Nashville. No more excuses, the season is in peril now.

Get r done Blues

Oshie's not in tonight. As for who comes out of the lineup, Hitchcock said that decision is delayed until warmups.

IMO it'll be Reaves. Cracknell-Porter-Jaskin is my guess for the 4th line (or, lol, Cracknell-Berglund-Jaskin).

I had the flu not long back and it was brutal. Get better.

I have had the nagging fear this flu will hit the Blues in the playoffs like it did in 2003. This is a bad flu season.

The Canucks are pretty well cemented into the #3 spot, so this game is less meaningful for them. On the other hand, they have to realize the Blues are a likely first round opponent and they need to send a message.

The Blues need to make the home ice advantage mean something. Its been too easy for opponents to come into Scott Trade Center and get points. And if they let the foot off the gas, they'll find themselves in danger of sliding out of the playoffs (though the chances are pretty small that could happen).

I'm hoping rookie enthusiasm from Jaskin will infect the team's effort tonight. I'm expecting a desperate Blues win...and an "explosion" of at least 3 goals.

At this point, scoring 1 goal is an explosion for us.

Do we get to steal the Stars hilarious"One team. One goal. Per game."?
Or were the rights to the phrase ours as soon as we got Hitchcock?

From Korac's pregame piece:

Quote:
"He looked a little off-balance taking nine days off when he first came here, and then I thought the last two days ... what convinced me to give him a chance and I'm kind of excited to look at him was we did a really hard down-low offensive drill yesterday," Hitchcock said of Jaskin, who he has compared to Marian Hossa. "It was a very difficult drill, and he scored against NHL players and it was a hard drill and he found the back of the net, he put it through the back of the net. I was really impressed. He got whacked around really good yesterday down low and he stood his ground and was determined to put the puck in the net."
Hitch arguing with Sobotka:

‏@jprutherford Hitch later conferred with Sobotka, who has played with Jaskins in the Czech Republic, and Sobotka reported back "not so much."

‏@jprutherford Hitch: "We had an evaluation comparison of a certain NHL player or two and he had a different one. But we were in the same hemisphere. (1/2)

‏@jprutherford "We were on one side of it and (Sobotka) said, "No, he's more like this guy.' He was a little bit different player. Similar country." (2/2)

Similar to Slovakia? Czech Republic (which Jaskin is)?

I'm 99.9% certain the player Sobotka refers to is Jagr.

I think Hitch meant Hossa, and Sobotka meant Jagr.

Actually I doubt that. Hitch made that comparison, not Sobotka. I don't think they would've disagreed if Sobotka said Jagr since Hitchcock already endorsed that comparison himself.

1 goal?

2 goals?

3 goals?

4...that might be delusional!

So who is/was a big, gritty Slovakian with skill that Sobotka may have compared him to? Zednik (I don't remember his playing style...just winging it here)?

I got the flu back at the end of March and I'm still coughing. Hope things work out differently for you.



Hopefully Jaskin is the X factor this team needs to actually score a goal. The last few games have been frustrating experiences.
