Yeah, Glass has been great. Volpatti has been solid, and I think most people would agree he's the best of the player's who've auditioned for that 4th line spot, but with Tambellini in and everyone else healthy, we don't have that spot open.
I agree that Torres on the 4th line would be an interesting experiment with a healthy lineup.
I don't understand how AV can even consider not inserting Raymond back in the line-up immediately upon being healthy enough to play. Read some of the threads on here, and Raymond is our 4th most important forward.
only reasonable explanation as to Raymond not getting in vs Dallas, and there being ??? about him getting in vs Colorado is that he's just not as important to the team as some make him out to be.
Nucks really do need something from the 4th line center when the playoffs roll around.
4th line center should be a good PKer for most teams. Disappointed in what Bolduc has brought to the team so far. I cut him a bit of slack given that he was hurt to start the season, but after the all-star break, that slack is gone.
anyone else starting to get just a touch worried we're peaking too early? Hard to believe we can play better than we have been. Hope Dallas wasn't a sign of a coming downturn in our play.
I'm hoping we're this good. If we've peaked too early then Detroit, Philly and Pittsburgh have all peaked too early as well. I don't get the feeling with this team that they ever feel a sense of satisfaction, no matter how well they are playing... which is a good sign. However, there are bound to be more lower points...it's inevitable in an 82 game schedule.
Well, Colorado can score but that's pretty much it. Their GA has fallen down to near the worst in the entire league (I think only Edmonton has allowed more goals), and the defense has looked pretty pedestrian lately; doesn't help that Anderson has been struggling.
Short of a misfire or really down game I think we can take this one.
