Some people here talk out of their hats without even knowing anything about Tinordi's skating. Wake up.
And you'd think Gill would be respected after his 2 seasons here.
Not sure who you were talking about, but all i was saying is that these two D would never be a pairing in a real game, that would just have made more sense to pair them with Diaz or Weber (or even Wowitka and Emelin for that matter). I have tons of respect for Gill, and am big supporter of Tinordi. It's just them being paired together is a bit weird to me.
For me it's all about the rookies/prospects. I'll be interested to see Cole and AK too of course, but I wouldn't expect them to be working their hardest. The guys who want to earn slots, either now or in the future, don't get many chances like this to make an impression.
Of tonight's roster I'm most interested in Trotter, Engqvist, Palushaj, Berger, Yemelin, Tinordi and Diaz. Interested to get a look at Blunden and Woywitka too, but not to the same degree. Also keen to get a look at how Weber's looking and if he's made any significant progress over the summer (ie continuing to get stronger).
I generally agree, I threw Cole in there just for the fact he's new to our team and AK, because I'm interested in seeing his work ethic and his skill always intrigues me. I'm hoping for big things from his this year, likely won't get much to indicate that tonight, but i'm interested to see him none the less.
I think it's great that both Dallas and Montreal are putting two potential top lines in the first game--nice first measuring stick since they'll probably play against each other a lot on the game. Look forward to seeing how Tinordi handles himself against what might be a lot of the first two lines. Trotter at center will be another focal point for me, as well as Diaz and Yemelin obviously.
Well we are watching hockey, isnt it ? It was a legitimate question.
I asked since im worried about the people who try to destroy hockey by changing the way its meant to be played. Its one aspect of the game like many others...
As for the skills. I have no doubt we will see some great plays.
Would you have prefered that I asked who will score ?
Ok, lets do that.
Who will score tonight against Dallas ?
I wasn't making fun, only commenting on something I noticed. Last year I remember someone had a fight card made out . One thing i hate about pre-season are the staged fights. If they happen in the heat of the moment, cool.
