His play has been 100% better since his Penalty Shot Goal on Jimmy Howard. That gave him so much confidence it's not even funny.

The holiday spirit suggests that it's better to give away than to receive, and Joe certainly keeps Christmas better than most . So, with that... Merry Christmas, everyone!

Corvo works hard, and has basically decent skills. But the guy continues to make dumb plays on a regular basis; turnovers, pinching in at the wrong times, ect.

I think the guy could be a solid defensemen, but I don't think he has any brains. The guy just isn't that bright, and that's why he'll never be solid.

He is better than Dempsey though... Alot better.

Recently I've been seeing him as a player akin to Tomas Kaberle. He's got loads of offensive talent (yes, he has more than just decent skill in that department), he just hasn't figured out the most effective way to apply it yet...doesn't quite know when its the right time to stay back and the right time to take a risk. However, Kaberle seems to have made great strides in that department and it looks as though Corvo might just be doing the same.

The problem with that is that Kaberle had more time to make his strides, as he came into the league as a 20 year old. Corvo came in as a 25 year old.

A rookie's a rookie...doesn't mean Corvo's game can't mature jus tbecause he was older when he started...

You're right about that, it's just that he has far less time than Kaberle had.

Actually, I would say that Corvo is a legitimate piece of ***** that has the potential to be a decent third pairing defenseman when his brainfarts and lack of effort aren't getting in the way.

You're lucky you're a man, otherwise he would punch you right in the mouth for a crack like that...

Don't forget the kick to the head when you're down.

Yer all crazy!

Corvo has been our best all around defenseman this year. He is putting points on the board, he is clearing out the front of the net, and isnt coughing up the puck nearly as much as he did last season. Too many of you have a hard on for Joe. This guy has played great, and you are being too narrowminded to look past it.

PS - As far as the assault in Boston, there is more to the story then is in the media. I think JC (giggle) should get a pass on that situation.

DO you know what having a hard on means?

And as for the Boston thing...please, enlighten us.

Not even close. Visnovski, Miller, Norstrom and Gleason are all better than Corvo.

Do not agree. Usually he has at least one boneheaded turnover a game that results in an opposition scoring opportunity.

I am usually one of the first guys to give a player the benefit of the doubt. When he deserves it. But I think alot of the Corvo-defenders like to close their eyes everytime Joe makes a mistake and then pretend it never happened. If this guy does truly turn around his game I will be more than happy to give the guy his props. But up until now I have not seen him play with enough heart or consistency to even consider signing him for another season.

Joe Corvo Does NOT Suck!

Finally! If frolov got it then finally his streak is over.


Either way, way to go Big Joe & the PP.

With that goal....added with the bad play of Weaver and Dempsey I will have to back off on my anti-Corvo position.......at least for a while.

Oh and for now Corvo > Weaver > Dempsey.

Corvo's shot was obviously going way high before it was deflected. I see little reason to praise a shot that would've hit glass. I'm surprised at you, Rob, and I'm disappointed in you, Spongebob

Hey at least he took a shot. That is more than I can say for the other Kings players on the powerplay. I am one of those who believe if you shoot the puck good things can/will happen. Also the fact that Weaver and Dempsey are playing so bad tonight are starting to make Corvo look alot less worse than he did prior to this game.

I want players to take shots just about as much as anyone, but if a player is going to shoot it high or wide on a powerplay, I'd much rather he not shoot it.

Normally I would agree with you but too many times I have seen a wide/high shot bounce off the boards and get deflected into the net. So in a way a bad shot is better than no shot at all.
