Extremely surprised nobody bumped this. Jacques was a machine out there.

I saw lots of anti-Jacques posts on the Sharks board tonight, so he must be doing something right.

He clocked Thornton for two monster hits, and was hitting everything else that moved along with great puck pursuit and support. I sure hope he has finally figured it out.

I didn't see a replay on the one where he flattened Thornton into the glass, but I didn't like the penalty they gave him for it.

If the highlights of last nights game are any indication, Jacques is doing exactly what he needs to do. I have always liked the package this kid brings to the rink, it is nice to see him putting it all together. The way he just gets into it in the first - not talking the enforcer talk, is precisely what more players on this team need to do (he won that fight). I cannot wait to have Stone back as well. A few changes and this could be quite a difficult team to play against (which I believe needs to be another shutdown defender and another gritty and talented forward).

Yeah. So miserable, he only managed 3 assists and a +2.


I like physical hockey as much as anyone (probably more, actually), and I've been in Jacques' corner from the start, but let's not overstate what it is he actually does.

He clocked Thornton with some good hits, but at any point during the game, did Joe look even slightly affected by it? The answer is a clear 'no' to anyone who was watching. His hits, while entertaining, didn't seem to do anything to take Thornton out of the game or render him less effective in any way.

The one thing I'd like to see more from Jacques is him bringing his physicallity to the front of the net. He needs to crash the net more and create havoc for the goaltender and defense.

Always been high on this guy.

Even when people talked a lot of trash about this guy I knew he would get his act together. The guy has a tank of a body and can skate. Any guy like that belongs in this league. Guys like Pouliot, Stortini, and Jacques were all guys that I thought could get the job done in the nhl and I still think Pouliot is a guy who can get find his niche as a 3rd liner. He's got the skill speed and size to be a good two way center and has shown some flashes of physicality in the past. He'll get there imo.

Also I noticed oiler fans just seem to hate on their own players so this is a nice change of pace topic. Ryan Stone was getting a lot of flak for being a slow skater this season for a while and I couldn't believe it.

In a 7 game series those hits would take their toll on Jumbo Joe. He bounced him around pretty good a couple of times. If we had a guy like Stone also chipping in, those hits would REALLY help our club. Fact is that for the most part JFJ is the only guy hitting effectively. Storts did a fine job of it as well last night, but we could use a couple more big hitters to keep their star guys honest.

I wasn't happy with his play yesterday, bad penalties.

Hit but be smart about it.

IMO the first one should've been a penalty, the 2nd one that was a delayed penalty seemed pretty weak. Besides I would much rather a player take an aggressive penalty than a weak hooking call or something along those lines.

I have been happy with his play with the exception of last game. You can be agressive without taking dumb penalties.

Agreed, and like I said the first one was just that, a dumb penalty.

Just figured that I'd bump this thread since I added some Stone highlights as well.

Good Thread! I've been waiting all year since the 6-2 start to see how this team would do with Stone and Jacques both in the lineup and although they don't fill up the stat sheet with goals and assists, they bring a dimension to this team that was lacking when they weren't in the lineup and that's a strong intense compete level and a never quit attitude, they free up room for their linemates to be effective by being physical and it's infectious through the lineup. Love what those two bring to the lineup, what are we 10-2 or 11-2 with Stone in the lineup? Unbelievable

the team with stone, brule, jacques, and stortini in the lineup reminds me of the late-90's oilers but with much more skill. those old oilers may not be that skilled but they made it hard on the opposing players to play against by finishing every check, chasing the defence hard into their end and hitting them, and they were just ornery most games. this team looks that way and it's fun watching them go out and mix it up instead of being the creampuffs they were last year.

one thing I like is the fact the oilers got Stone and a 4th for Garon

that is an example of how sometimes a small trade means more then a big trade

i'd like to see Stone take on Rypien next time vs Canucks - lots of hype around Rypien right now and Stortini obviously is no match for him and he is boosting canucks momentum every game, we start off with Stone taking a round out of him and we should be able to rock the Canucks

Stone and JFJ are incontrovertable proof that you need balance in a lineup. It's great to have skill but you don't win on skill alone.

This team still needs to get rid of one or 2 of the smurfs and add some size. ATM I would love to see POS shipped out for either a true lock down defenceman or a big strong faceoff guy.

Better yet POS and Staios for both would be a dream come true IMO.

Either way I am very thankful for JFJ, Stone AND Stortini. Really underappreciated for what they bring to this team game in and game out.
