Reg season, I get it. In the POs you better learn to take it and draw penalties.
That’s what teams that win in the POs do. Can’t let those teams frustrate you and get you off your game because that’s what they are going to do. We need Barzal on the ice producing not sitting in the penalty box.

Problem is then you have to score on the ensuing power play😂😉

Yes Cabana Boys and of course a few of the players friends on here.
I mean I think Cpt has beers with Martin and Casey.

All of the time. Have plans this week to meet the best fourth line in hockey.

Who do you want to play? The Senators?

A good team in the playoffs would be a good opponent. Preferably one of the top 8 teams in the conference.

They’ve hit another rough patch but that team isn’t done yet contrary to popular belief imo. They’ll snap out of it and once the playoffs start they’ll find another gear. Can never count out one of if not best playoff team in the league.
- Cptmjl

They're never done. I don't care if the Pens lose 20 games in a row, I'm never counting that team out from anything. Crosby is too good.

They're not terrible, but would you rather have a 33yo Ryan Getzlaf or a 27yo Panarin? Adding either of those contracts would probably preclude them from adding more talented and younger players in FA.

Not that I wouldn't love Getzlaf, but I think he's just not a good fit given the other circumstances.

- eichiefs9


I would rather Getzlaf who is a BEAST, wins almost every important face off, would be insane to have in a playoff series, and is signed for another 2 years... than Panarin who would cost probably around the same and possibly be gone July 1st. Plus this team needs depth at Center.. Getzlaf is the 1C/2C we need.

Fair points and Panarin will cost a lot more than ~$8M.

I still don't see it happening, but I guess you never know.

“For two periods we gave up nothing until we took the penalty in the third, and then they had a little push,” Trotz said. “That’s something we still have to learn. We had a goal lead, there’s no need for any retaliation penalties. To me, that ends up in the back of the net in a critical moment and all the good work you did in a night can go to a wasteland.”

I actually watched this yesterday and smiled. He is calling out his star for taking a bad penalty at the end of the game. ZERO shot this happens in the past 10 years. we would have heard about all the things they were doing to JT the whole game and that he finally snapped..etc.

That would be nice.. thanks. We do seem to match up and play better against some teams. The Bruins for whatever reason have our number. I would not like to play them in the first round if by some miracle we make the playoffs. ....

Like I said earlier if we continue to play like this, fix our pp to even mediocre status, and stay healthy we can match up to any team. BUT the bruins are just a female dog to play against. Nobody wants to face them in the first round. I’d rather hope to beat whoever we face in the first round(besides the bruins of course)and play whoever played against the bruins in the 2nd round😂

I would love to play the leafs in the first round Bruins playing them is a close second. I believe they’re a lot further off then they think and we would match up well against them(the Leafs). Knocking them out in the first round would be hysterical 😂

Agreed, although it seems the isles have more trouble with bigger teams. I’m still hoping/praying the isles get the Leafs in the post season. The media would go bananas. Would be the story of the year for sure
