You need to go to the net.
I'd like to see the guy who tries to go through guys like Chara and Gill.

Guys like Chara and Gill have bad foot speed/agility. They are slow at changing direction. You want them to move laterally so they can't use their size to cover ground that their feet can't.

... cut wide, every time, skate into the corner and throw the puck at the net from some perimeter location is not a good game plan. You don't want to be predictable because Chara/Gill are smart and will cheat based on your tendencies.

A little variety from our forwards can only help.

Gomez has a limited no trading clause, and the limitation is, three teams Gomez choses to NOT got to.

So basically he has a no trade clause for only 3 teams, habs can trade him to any other 26 destinations without any clause.

It's not the end of the world, unless the team who'd actually want him would be one of those 3 on his list.

Thanks to whoever pointed out this fact to me in the past, i don't remember who it was.

Gomez said he's never wanna play in Buffalo, so that's one.

How could a guy from Alaska have any NTC's. Everything is south for him & Buffalo winters should feel just like home.

I guess that's why Chara sucks, he is slow and can't change direction... gotcha.

No No Chara doesn't suck. He can do many many things. Like clear the front of the net, shoot 105mph, fight, very nice first pass, good moving the puck, captain a team... I suppose he could reach things most other people can't. He is probably good at seeing the stage at a concert if he had floor seats. Maybe he could dunk. His dad was a good wrassler so he might be good at that too.

He's allowed to have flaws. I say he is slow and getting slower every year.

I'm sure there are a lot of guys taht can handle him but he doesn't fight those guys, instead they go beat up on Thornton.

Yeah, but I'm sure Claude would also like it if Thornton would do the fighting And Chara stays on the ice. And I'm sure Thortnon knows that its his job to fight anyways. Chara will drop the gloves against basically anyone.

Chara was afraid of laraque after the last time they fought. Laraque nearly took the guys head off. Chara is a terrible fighter, and it sucks that he gets as much credit as he does. He's a physical specimen for sure, but his balance is downright terrible.

Chara an horrible fighter is possibly the most hilarous statement ever made by an op on this board... Laraque himself said that Chara would be the best fighter in this league if he was playing this role.. Chara isnt effraid to fight anyone, he is just a smart guy who knows he is more valuable on the ice than on the penality box, the guy play 30 mins per game... His reach and strength are just unbelievable.. As much as I hated the guy for what he did to MaxPac, I still can recognize his tools..
