Maybe Nelson has finally figured it out? I wouldn't bet on it but we'll find out in the next few months

Maybe, but I'm kind of getting tired of the "maybes". This team can't operate by hoping guys reach their ceilings in their late-20's (and no, I'm not suggesting that's what you're saying).

Historically speaking, he's started most seasons coming out of the gate hot and then absolutely falls off the face of the earth for the last half-to-two-thirds of the year. I don't have much confidence in him to permanently erase that trend.

If Wilde can get his defensive game and decision making under control, that's going to be one hell of a pick.

I know others are to blame on Carolina's goal, but my God...go back and watch Ladd. He stands in the circle covering no one, and then when the play comes directly toward where he was standing, he drifts up high to cover no one.

While I don't disagree that Ladd should have done something. It looked like they were all playing man-up and Leo just let his guy skate right by him to the rebound.

Maybe it will be as good of a pick as Toews.. he can play for B-port till he is 25 and then go to another team.

Listen I get it we all think he should be up here but lets not act like he has been toiling in the minors for years. He literally has a little over a years worth of games as a pro under his belt. His time will come

Jaroslav Halak stats this year.

5 Games played- 2 shut outs, 3 wins, 2 OT losses. 1.43 GAA anda .945 Save %.

It's amazing how much better a goalie can be without 3 or 4 2-on-1 rushes a period.

That and picking and choosing when he plays. He has played against the Flyers, Oilers, Sabres & Canucks. Good for him but lets take a step back

I am just very upset he is not on the team this year. I understand he got hurt last year but he was ready before the injury. He spent plenty of time in the AHL.. this is his 3rd year. He is not a kid after 3 years in college hockey too. He will be 25 in a few months and is FAR better than other options getting time on the ice for Isles. It's not like he has not been a dominant force in the AHL already either.. it's really dispicable that he is down there again.. he played fantastic in camp. It's beyond absurd and I am sure many of our other prospects are looking at it in a bad way. "If this guy can't make the team how the heck can any of us get the call?" ... It's very foolish.

You would think going from one of the worst teams to one of the best and then getting spot starts against weaker teams would improve his numbers. Jaro is what he always is and that's a hot and cold goalie. I'm sure its nice playing under a staff that knows how to play D

Everybody said the same thing about Pulock and they handled him perfectly. Toews is no different. Patience grass hopper. Yeah this might be his 3rd year in the AHL but like I said he has only played like 100 games in the minors. Let him work on things he needs to work on and then he'll be here soon enough

Jeez, are you going to criticize every post? Did someone piss in your cereal this morning?

Maybe you should look up the definition of criticize because I don't think you understand what it means. Since when is countering someones opinion with your own criticizing? If that was the case then everybody criticizes everybody on every single post But I like that badge and I'll take it

Not sure but I’m pretty certain we’ll see it repeated fifty or sixty times now.
