As mentioned elsewhere, Yan Stastny has been recalled from Peoria in case Backes and/or Ryan Johnson cannot suit up. Also as mentioned elsewhere, Erik Johnson and David Perron are healthy scratches.

Me neither, I've almost forgotten who we looked forward to watching last year.

Stastny is a no-go tonight...

When AM says "We need our best players to be our best players" I take that as "Our veterans need to be our best players". Since that isn't happening, why not bench a vet or 2 and let EJ and Perron play?

Good so Perron is playing, just on the 4th line with King and Hinote...sccording to the lineup theat FSN runs (that looks to be wrong though)

Meanwhile Mayers can try to play scorer which kills the best parts of Mayers game and allows him to mishandle the puck and shoot 10 feet wide very very often

If Stastny got there a little earlier, Perron would be sitting like AM wants.

He's been out for two (2) shifts so far - one with Tkachuk and Stempniak, the other with Tkachuk and Backes. He's out right now with Tkachuk and Backes again.

Oh, the horror!

I didn't realize being a smartass was part of your moderator duties.

I was going by the FSN lineup they ran on the bottom of the broadcast which listed Perron on the 4th line. I even posted that lineup looked to be wrong

I didn't realize that Perron had a clause in his contract that guarantees he gets top-6 duty for every shift of every game. Of course, I didn't react to seeing Perron in the lineup tonight with, "Good so Perron is playing, just on the 4th line with King and Hinote" and then opine about Mayers getting to be a scorer tonight.

I prefer to let things actually unfold, instead of pulling a knee-jerk reaction because Murray didn't/doesn't do what I think he should do.

I just don't see the point in running a guy whose biggest flaws are apparently his need to get stronger and better defensively out there with King and Hinote as FSN had listed. That doesn't seem to be playing to his strengths in a fairly important game. I just don't see Perron being able to be much of a help right now if he's not on a scoring line.


I prefer to think for myself and be a bit passionate about certain things

We know what Perron is good at. This is the season for him to work on and learn what aren't his best attributes.

As long as this isn't Mike Kitchen expecting a player to produce, then putting him on the 3rd or 4th line and him not producing and then Kitchen benching him because he doesn't produce.

Luongo does not look good so far...that's a break

Just because we've had a recent losing streak does not mean we should abandon our playoff aspirations just yet

I assume Butcher said something about a hole then?
