I'd like to see Barz/Beau/Ebs and Nelly/Lee/Baily reunited for a few games. Really thing this might make a difference. Maybe he's waiting until we really need a spark??!! We are winning even with current lack of scoring.

Possible that 1st line is playing well I think but they do need some scoring help

Totally agree. As much as I want a goal scorer or depth center added, I'm ok with giving the current group the chance to make a run at it (I've said this before - not that I'm on her that much). I really like our mojo, and the guys on this team. Guess we'll see over the next 9 or so days what our team will look like as we enter the final stage and hopefully playoffs. LOL, still not comfortable saying it!!

Not saying that one game should be the measuring stick, but it's interesting that Panarin had one SOG in 23 shifts and was -1 for the game.

That line of Barz/Beau/Ebs got split up, because they were getting lit up for goals against. Not sure they should be re-united.

Ses, these numbers don't reflect tonight's shut out.

I thought for sure I saw Greiss with the better numbers the other night. No matter.

Defensively maybe, but they just aren't scoring goals. I don't feel like looking up, but our first two lines aren't scoring as they should or could be IMO. I realize we are winning and playing a more defensive system, but still..

This could impact where a player goes if he wants 8 years or of the isles make a trade only they can give the ith year

CBA reminder on max deals. A player must be on the roster at the trade deadline of the team he hopes to sign an 8 year deal with. Erik Karlsson stayed on Ottawa’s reserve list through the deadline last year so San Jose can’t sign him to max deal until after Feb 25 deadline (cont)

So for Duchene/Stone, they can sign 8 year max deals with the Sens through June 30 if they stay put. But if they want 8 years with another team, must be on that new club’s reserve list before 3 pm ET deadline Feb 25. So must be traded to get max 8 years elsewhere

A third thing to remember. Let’s say Stone or Duchene go as rental players elsewhere but then hit the market July 1 and sign with a different team. Can’t sign for more than 7 years with that new team in the case.

So in essence if we give up a lot for one of them only the isles can add the 8th year of term and that's leverage

It's been a while since they've played together and tem playing much more sound defensively. I'd give it another shot, but what do I know Nonetheless, loving this team...

Kuhnackl had a decent game. That has to increase the chances that MDC will be sent down when they activate Ladd.

Oh man. If we can get a legit scoring threat this is going to be a very fun playoff run. If Ladd somehow starts contributing when he gets back, icing on the cake. LGI.

Just read in an article after last nights game, "Greiss lowered his goals-against average to 2.18 — second in the NHL to Lehner's 2.08."

I think Lou adds a piece to the top 6 and PP. This team deserves its best shot at this.

Amazing! If Trotz ever tries to leave I will chain him to the bench.

It probably got lost in the tits and ass but as I posted above if the isles move a lot for a duchene panarin or stone only they can resign them to an 8th year, same goes for any team that acquires them. This can be a big bargaining chip to a player and they are all young enough it won't be a killer at the end of it. I'm aware we had it last year with tavares but he wanted to leave and panarin likes NYC, we have a great coach and gm, are winning, have a new arena coming could potentially offer 8 years at a large sum. It's not unrealistic to see lou getting one here for this year and go right to work trying to resign them

I think the fact that the hockey guys are talking about Lou adding is for a reason. Unlike Snow who would be in last place and preach his belief in his lockeroom, Lou Lam is gonna add to this team. This team is for real and there’s no denying their chances now. I believe they’re competing for the Stanley Cup

Mikko Koskinen expected to start tonight for #LetsGoOilers. No surprises there, as Cam Talbot is expected to go against the #Isles tomorrow. Believe NYI is one of the teams showing some interest in Cam. Strong defensive team that is playoff bound could be a nice fit for him.
