That's an interesting point. And a good point. And yes, the thought has crossed my mind lately: Why not expose Krug and protect Dunn. But I'm not quite there yet.
I've wondered about that. The power play has moved up to 17th at 20.2 percent, which is respectable. But I've wondered about Montgomery, who runs the power play.
For sure. And that's exactly my point. How would you like to see Kostin-Sundqvist-Barbashev next year? Or Barbashev-Bozak-Sundqvist?
Football questions always welcomed here. Although as each year passes as a hockey writer, I'm that much less qualified on the football questions. I still make an occasional call on the football front, but haven't in a while. Haven't heard anything new on the lawsuit lately.
For sure. Minus-17 in the second period. If the team misses the playoffs, that will be one of the main reasons.
I think St. Louis wins the case. But the NFL often does better in appeals court. So I'm not ready to predict total victory. Sorry for the brief answers. Chat ends in 6 minutes, so I'm in the speed-dating portion of the proceedings.
Maybe we should have that as a poll question at some point. Do you protect Dunn or Krug?
Don't think so. As Mike Martz used to say about the Greatest Show: "It was a special place in time."
I kind of leave the metrics up to Gordo and TomT. Unfortunately, I'm old school on that regardless of the sport. I trust my eyes. But hockeyreference.com has individual possession metrics for all players. Evolvinghockey, naturalhatrick and moneypuck I think are all respected metric sites.
Jake Allen, For his play but also selfishly for his sincerity and perspective he provided to the media.
Time to go Thanks for playing. Much appreciated.
