Not after three games. Check back at the end of the month.
We've run through our list of quiestions (already). So if you've got anything on your mind, now's your chance.
The "300 plan" was just for the 4 games in this homestand, including San Jose tonight and the LA Kings (two games) over the weekend. It is supposed to be re-evaluated after those games, at whchi time, the crowd side could be bumped, dropped or remain the same. I believe it's a different goup of first responders for every game. And yes, it's a great gesture by the team.
No, it could've been a later edition than I received on my lawn _ with a glitch.
I believe the Coyotes, Stars and Panthers are allowing between 15 percent and 30 percent of capacticy. I noticed Florida listed a crowd of 3,667 last night against Chicago.
I hear you. And I kind of miss "Towel Man" and "Country Roads"
One thing is obvious and has been talked about. The Blues have simply been too soft allowing entry from the netural zone. That's made it way too easy for the opposing team to set up. Beyond that, I think the Blues are simply losing coverage too often, losing contract with opposing players in their area. It's happened at least 3 times on PPGs by the opposition, where the shooter is simply left wide open.
I don't think they are at the start of the season.
A little surprised. From what I could tell the Avalance were pretty happy with Cole. I'd check in with Jeff Gordon's chat on Friday. He can probably offer you more insight on the deal than I can.
Well, not just PIetrangelo. But Steen and Bouwmeester have also logged quality minutes on the PK in recent years. So you're replacing three of your top guys. Another accomplished guy on the PK, Bortuzzo, missed Monday's game and remains on IR with what appears to be a concussion. There are only maybe about eight regulars on the PK, so you're missing about half of your troops from the pK last year.
72 and sunny? I'm pretty jealous. It's sunny here but about 30 degrees cooler! The Blues actually played a strong first period, and for the most part controlled the play, even though they were down 2-0. So I'm not sure that Berube said a whole lot. But they did get their transition game going in the second, and as you mentioned, they certainly aimed some shots glove-side at Dubnyk.
Obviously it might vary according to game circumstances, but usually the first line might get between 18-to-20 minutes a game. The second line between 16-18 minutes. and the third line maybe 14-to-16. There can be variances,, of course, depending on how much a player participates on the PK or PP. And sometimes, in-game changes are made situationally that can affect time. But yeah, in theory as you go down the lines, the ice time decreases.
Going with Jones tonight.
It has to be because of the border crossing issue. And I would think if I were a Vancouver prospect and I was stationed in Utica that I'd wonder why I'm kind of on the back-burner organizationally. This is good for the Blues, because it might free up playing time for some of their prsopects.
Blais actually did get some time on the O'Reilly-Perron line last season. He was matched up with them for 10 starts. But I think Blais is mainly vieiwed as a third-line or fourth-line guy by the organization. Although there's nothing to say that Blais can't work his way past that in the future.
Hah!. I'm by nature an optimist. So not only do the Blues get a PPG, I'm gonna say they score first _ any kind of goal _ for the first time this season.
Once you get down to the final four, it's seeded 1 thru 4. The survivor with the most regular-season points is seeded No. 1, while the survivor with the least regular-season points gets the No. 4 seed. And 2 would play 3. With the divisional realignment, it's possible the Blues could end up playing Nashville or Chicago in the Stanley Cup Final. (In theory.)
That's a great question. And food for thought. Don't know, but will try to check into it.
What you're saying is logical. But I'm not ready to go there after just three games.
Well, I say there's a good chance both are there at the end of the season. But I'd say there's a pretty good chance at least oe is gone from the roster after the conclusion of the season. And if it's just one, I'd say Gunnarsson since his contract will be up (Bortuzzo still has a year left)
Last call for questions. . . . .
OK, that's it for today. Thanks for playing and enjoy the game tonight. . . .
