Ellis has won the starting job in my mind. He was last good in 2009, while Ward was last good in 2006.

Ward was never good, unless you count getting pulled in a game and losing your starting job 'good'

This was a few years ago, but I was at a game (vs. the caps I think) and e. staal fought near center ice. I couldn't even believe it was him! but it has happened.

True. Ward's entire rep is based on a lie, propagated over the years by the Baghdad John/Tripp Goebbels FSN broadcast team. It's time we put this to an end. Ward has failed every single year since the Cup run except the year Babchuk led us to the playoffs. Time to hand the reigns to Ellis IMO.

Trade Ward to a team at the deadline that needs a strong, veteran backup. I dunno, let him back up Lindback in Tampa or something.

Why did we let Murphy go to the KHL? Best career SV% in league history, and we're starting Sham Ward?

This franchise is a joke.

Nobody wants Sh4m W4rd's contract. It'll be something like Ward+Ryan Murphy+1st for Todd Bertuzzi.

Meh, I'll take that if it'll clear up some cap room. Bertuzzi would at least add some toughness, even if the other guy didn't see him coming at first.

I agree that we handle our goalies very poorly. So we just need to call up this Frederik Andersen kid. I heard he's really good.

So, now that we have the season opener and home opener out of the way, do we actually come out and play every period or do we take a lot of time off? Hopefully the rust comes off this game or I'll make myself look like an ass in the stands like I did last game.

Since he showed chemistry with Staal last year, and our lineup as a whole is lacking chemistry, I would wager that he is going to stick.

Hopefully, long term. He was there with Staal last year and proved to be one of the only players who could consistently compliment Staal, so I would like to think he'd continue to play with him.

Last time someone asked this I said Tlusty was sure to play on the top line, and we saw what happened.

I'll be more cautious this time and say he's the common sense choice.

Phoenix needs goaltending help.

Cam Ward for Gritty Vet Ray Whitney.

Look at it this way, 4 points off the division lead with a game in hand, and 46 games to go is the best position we've been in in years.

In all seriousness, that's a perfectly legitimate way to look at it. The first two games were terribad but they were only two games.
