Not a lazy malcontent, but not someone who has had to play a lot of defense. Not an uncommon affliction among goalscorers.
Just one more impact of COVID on society. Of course, for all we know, they have a song but we're never in the dressing room to hear it.
That thought crossed my mind a couple days ago. But probably too late for it now.
Hey, we're in the homestretch here, so if you've got some questions, now's your chance.
Well, Thomas has only been back three weeks, so if he hasn't won then, you have to go back a long ways. Thomas didn't start the season well and maybe was coming around when he got hurt. He has no points in the seven games he's been back, so he's kind of starting all over again. And Kyrou did look like gangbusters at the start and hasn't done a whole lot lately. Again, both are still young and have a lot of growing to do. Assuming a more normal next season, they'll both need to start showing more on a regular basis. Both have shown just enough to be intriguing, but not enough to be fully satisfying.
A colleague raised the point last season that by signing Schenn early to a long-term deal, he was free to go to the net without worrying that a puck would end his season and cost him millions. I don't know that that's been the case with Schwartz. With Hoffman, with a one-year deal, this was very much a show-me season for him and right now, he's not making the case for a big deal next season from someone. Some guys have contract years in the final year of a deal where they look great, sign a big deal, and then don't play as well. That has not been the case for Hoffman.
These teams have been a bit frisky at times. But the window may have passed on punishing Stone.
I don't know that there's one deal to be made above any others. Getting the most you can for Hoffman is probably the simplest to do since he's not coming back.
Is there a new app now that Fox Sports doesn't exist any more? I thought I read that the app was supposed to change to the new app automatically, but maybe it hasn't. If anyone has an answer in these closing minutes, let me know.
He's got a no-trade clause, so probably not on the trade. The expansion draft has always been one of those intriguing gambles the Blues could make that the shoulder injury would scare Seattle away. Again, we're at a point now that almost anything is possible, though moving him now would be selling low. And 30 goal scorers aren't the easiest thing to find.
OK, the old clock on the wall -- which doesn't really exist -- says it's time to move on. I think Jim will be here next wee, post trade deadline, so we'll see what this team looks like and if they've finally won a game. Thanks for stopping by, thanks for the questions, and on to the future. Take care.
