but with carolina putting peters in its a very good situation to put turco in aswell and give crawford a bit of a rest, especially if they wanna play him tomorrow as toronto has been waking up as of late.
it comes down to this. CC needs a rest soon, it shows in his play. if you had the choice to either give CC a rest and put turco in against a backup who has had a shaky stint this year, or would you rest CC the following day against a team thats on a winning streak and a hot goalie on the other side? the choice is fairly obvious if you ask me, turco should have been in tonight.
I think they're going to give CC the rest tomorrow...that'll give him a few days off consecutively. Playing him tomorrow cuts into that. I'm almost certain we see Turco tomorrow.
Great...then bring up whomever we have playing in the AHL. I don't care if Turco ever steps on the ice again. He's a .500 goaltender this year, at best, and his GAA is more bloated than a Twinkie floating around in Lake Michigan.
... and who would that be sir? If Turco is our backup he needs to play, and this was the perfect game to get him in there.
He's been pathetic and his partner hasn't been much better. You don't get much of a defense pairing for $9 million nowadays, I guess.
Very true, at least Hammer is giving an effort... albeit a poor one.
I guess you hand a guy 30 million dollars and they stop caring. Maybe I am too focused on Seabrook but his effort is pissing me off. Just signed a huge contract and we are only inside the 8th seed by 2 points and this is as hard as you can skate?
top 5 reasons we are fighting for a spot..
1-Salary cap and bonuses
2-Keith N Seabs horrid early play
3-Turco's awful play
4-No decent number 6
5-lack of forwards driving net playing hard
6 - the division is incredibly competitiive
7 - Hawks are still finding new chemistry with several rookies
8 - CC has been good, but not quite as good as some like to claim. He hasn't reached the performances of a Halak in 2010 or a Reimer for Leafs this year and he must be getting tired.... and he looks it.
