That shorty by Staios tonight should have definitely upped his trade value. 5th rounder?
No, trading any defense right now would be a huge mistake. Pardy is probably going to be out for a while.
Nice to see Gio have a really solid game, not that he's been bad. I just haven't noticed him as much lately. One of his shot blocks was unreal last night, the guy is fearless. That alone will make sure he earns his money.
Jokinen has been one of our best players over the last month and a half. Anyone blaming him for that goal last night should give your head a shake. Yeah he boached a pass, but he was the first one back to make up for the mistake and he got an unlucky bounce off of him. That hustle will not go unnoticed by Sutter.
It's really nice to have a player like Morrison on this team. He's so versitile and can play with anyone. He has that rare quality to make everyone around him better, @750k he's making our former GM look like a genius. Even better is the fact that Gillis looks like an ass clown for passing up on him.
Jokinen should in no way be blamed for that goal that bounced in off his stick. No more than he should be blamed for hustling back into the play and actually being in a very good defensive position.
Yeah Sutter's signings/trades this year have been the biggest factor in this teams resurgence. Oddly enough the turnaround for this team would have never happened without the attitude change when he left.
Weird, Sutter can be so good and so bad for this team.
