  1. iirc the plan was to give UPL 20-25 games in Cincy before considering a call-up to Roch
  2. i read that as "moist wind".... not a good visual.
  3. Hutton's trade value is nil. Knowing how the Sabres operate, they'll just happily keep on the roster because they don't want to upset him.
  4. Also in their last 4... Auston Matthews has 0 goals, 1 assist and is a -7.
  5. Larsson would've been a decent 4th liner 10-15 years ago. The game is different now, period. It's all about speed and skill, rolling 4 lines that display some minimum level of said speed and skill.... which Larsson simply cannot provide. Give me those same defensive abilities on a guy with just a bit more offensive skill and speed.... it's not like he has some rare physical talent that makes him great at shot suppression. Take a guy like Asplund... I see him as a replacement for Larsson eventually.... similar stature, sound defensively, but a bit more speed and skill... might chip in 15-20g a season and provide sound defensive play.
  6. Risto, Hutton and Larsson (sell high after 3 assist game)
  7. it worked? he's sucked for 5 seasons, lucks into 3 assists in a single game against a team who laid down on their coach... and suddenly he's the answer? On his first assist he did nothing but engage in a wall battle at center ice, Skinner does all the rest. On the second assist he makes a cross ice pass from his own blue line to skinner at center ice. Skinner does the work, Sheary cleans up. On his thurd assist he blindly clears the puck from deep in his own zone up the wall, which evades a few bodies, sheary tracks it down shoots it off Domingues' blocker and it dribbles in. Skinner and Sheary did all the heavy lifting on those goals... Larsson was nothing more than a lucky passenger.
  8. Any update on Dahlin? It's been over a week, getting a bit concerned.
  9. They don't play every single minute with their linemates. Icings, for example, force them to stay out on the ice in their d-zone, often when they're tired in the middle of a line change. Risto is +6 over the last 3 games... still a negative TRpm haha 🙂 Updated TRpm after last night.... ============================================================== BUF even strength goal differential through 28 games = 10 BUF average even strength goal differential per game = 0.36 exp+/- is a function of gp, %min played, and team ES goal diff TRpm(team relative +/-) is the diff btwn actual+/- and exp+/- ============================================================== Team Player TRpm GP +/- exp+/- %min BUF Marco Scandella 9.87 21 12 2.13 28.4 BUF Conor Sheary 6.07 24 8 1.93 22.6 BUF Jimmy Vesey 5.99 25 8 2.01 22.5 BUF Jack Eichel 5.43 28 9 3.57 35.7 BUF Zach Bogosian 4.32 6 5 0.68 31.6 BUF Brandon Montour 3.50 14 5 1.50 29.9 BUF Rasmus Asplund 2.31 10 3 0.69 19.2 BUF Henri Jokiharju 1.24 28 4 2.76 27.6 BUF Vladimir Sobotka 0.64 16 2 1.36 23.8 BUF Tage Thompson -0.04 1 0 0.04 11.6 BUF Jean-Sebastien Dea -0.04 1 0 0.04 9.8 BUF Johan Larsson -0.17 25 2 2.17 24.3 BUF Rasmus Dahlin -0.71 24 2 2.71 31.6 BUF Victor Olofsson -0.98 28 2 2.98 29.8 BUF Kyle Okposo -1.20 19 0 1.20 17.6 BUF Rasmus Ristolainen -1.85 28 2 3.85 38.5 BUF Jeff Skinner -1.90 28 1 2.90 29.0 BUF Curtis Lazar -2.32 6 -2 0.32 14.8 BUF John Gilmour -2.41 4 -2 0.41 28.4 BUF Evan Rodrigues -2.98 14 -2 0.98 19.5 BUF Zemgus Girgensons -3.14 28 -1 2.14 21.4 BUF Marcus Johansson -3.14 21 -1 2.14 28.5 BUF Casey Mittelstadt -4.14 28 -2 2.14 21.4 BUF Colin Miller -4.33 22 -2 2.33 29.7 BUF Sam Reinhart -6.36 28 -3 3.36 33.6 BUF Jake McCabe -7.26 27 -4 3.26 33.8 ==============================================================
  10. Put Olofosson and Skinner with Jack. Reinhart is becoming dead weight on that line, 1 goal in the last 10 games... a couple assists over that span. He's invisible most nights.
  11. This is getting out of hand. This stuff happened many years ago, same with Peters. Not excusing what they did, but it was the culture back then. Every coach I had from my teen years through college did things that would be considered completely unacceptable these days, from getting physically aggressive with players, racist comments here and there, belittling guys, etc... That said, I'm glad that they're cleaning this stuff up, but there has to be some statute of limitations here. It was a different era.
  12. That's more a product of how bad NJ played last night than anything special that Larsson did.
  13. Larsson centering Skinner is an abomination. You're paying Skinner $9m/yr and give him Johan Larsson as his center.... Johan Larsson, a guy who's averaged about 15-16 assists per season over his career. This organization man, I have no words.
