Good. Now we can move on. Thx
I like Dunn's potential. I like a lot about his game. And I like dealing with him. But I'd say 60-40 he's gone.
I think we'd all feel better if he had three or four more goals. But he's had plenty of assists and the power play was really perking before he was injured.
It's getting boosted to 5,000.
If the Blues are fully healthy, I wouldn't expect either of them to be in the lineup in the playoffs.
I'm sure Berube is all for it.
The D has tightened up lately. They're about half a goal better over the last 15 games than they wore in the first 39. But they need to tighten up more.
You make some good points. But there are only 31 of these jobs in the world. So I would think even Buffalo and the Rangers would be coveted head-coaching jobs.
I talk to Dick Vermeil and Charley Armey a couple of times a year. Same with Isaac Bruce, mainly Hall of Fame -related stuff with him. I talked to John Shaw and Mike Martz after Jim Hanifan died. So I kind of stay in touch. I think about trying to reach out to John Shaw every time I'm in LA for a Blues-Kings game. But there usually isn't a ton of time on those trips. I still miss the NFL some, usually around the time training camp starts and then once the playoffs start. But I don't miss it nearly as much as I thought. Covering hockey has been a great late-career surprise.
I think it's still possible to win with that style. Again, the Blues did it just two years ago. It's funny, when the Blues are on their game, connected, supporting each other, they don't look slow at all. It just seems like it's been harder for the Blues to get to that level this season, and sustain it, when they do get there.
Yeah, with Armstrong you should always expect the unexpected. And I'm sure Armstrong is always doing his due diligence even if that doesn't necessarily qualify as being "involved" in the Eichel sweepstakes. But it's hard for me to see how to make the money work ($10M a year) unless some of it stays with Buffalo. And one other thing: After getting fleeced so badly in the O'Reilly trade, I wouldn't think Buffalo is eager to do business with St. Louis again.
Agreed, especially lately. The Blues just aren't generating enough shots. I'm sure he's stressed it. I don't know what else to tell you. Instead of looking for the perfect shot, or their cleanest look, why not take a Vegas (and to a lesser extent, Colorado) approach, and just put pucks on net.
I've paid next to no attention to the expansion rules what with the Blues season in process. What's the rule about a certain number of games on Tarasenko that you're referring to?
Again, I'm not spending any time on expansion right now. Not sure what rule you're talking about.
I'm really dating myself, but sometimes I feel like the Dean Martin to Binnington's Jerry Lewis. You know, the setup guy. Yeah, the Zoom format just isn't the same.
Wouldn't some teams view that as an advantage in their favor, since Vegas might be more apt to tire out with one less player?
