This whole idea of bringing in players because Jack went to school with them or is buddies is a bad way to build a team. Vessey, Erod. Hows has that worked out ?

I think they earned a look based on they way they played in college.  

Both are boarderline NHL players but giving them a shot is not a problem.  Remember just three years ago our farm system was in shambles.

Smart players like Kucherov don't trip players because it's usually called

Being annoyed at inconsistent officiating is not the same thing as blaming woes on the refs, just so we're all on the same page here.

Just watched it again. Lucky it wasn't embellishment on Girgensons. As for Montour, also watched it again. I'd now call it a swipe and not a punch, but it was also the third time in the sequence that Montour roughed Johnson, so I'd guess that one was a matter of the ref saying, "OK, that's enough."

That was probably the best period they've played in several weeks. 

Well played but Tampa just seems to have the speed edge on us. I figured Tampa was due to come around to it's game unfortunately it gets it together against us. Talented team and we're holding our own.

Erod looks overwhelmed. 

There was a brief period last year when he looked like a decent 3rd liner.  Not anymore.

I'm still seeing Jack not engaging with his body, I need more from him in that department. 

Not a bad period, of course they wait until I cross the border to play well.

They are playing better. I like Johansson with Mitts.  Sheary and Vesey seem to be rotating with that line and Skinns line.  Erod still not up to snuff.  Send him down call up either TT on wing or maybe Asplund to play center on the third line?

Erod is out his depth. Vesey has actually surprised me. His defensive play is pretty decent. Needs a break in front of goal.

 

Edit, I was wrong about Vesey

Cool coverage of Stockholm, the town, the shops, the food.  

When do we get to see the Sweedish bikini team?

Actually Vessey I don't think has been bad just not scoring. 

Well, from what I've seen so far this season he's at his best when he's a warm body out there not making mistakes.  I wouldn't call that good either...

And here I thought IKEA provided the best racks in Sweden.

If this sequence ever deserves a penalty, it always deserves a penalty, and the result would be that the game would be 100% special teams. It is bush league to call things sometimes and not others for this reason. Otherwise you arbitrarily change the course of the game for no reason. I'm glad you at least agree it wasn't a punch

How the actual ***** did we not score there.

You guys gonna bitch about that call too?

No, because we're not caricatures, as much as this post indicates you'd like to think. We're capable of observing calls with nuance

Sure.

That was incidental, shouldn't have been a penalty.

That's a weak interference call

I guess I don’t know the rule. I don’t understand the call.

Ah, I forgot section 3.1 - 07: Two face washes are acceptable, but three deemed an infraction.
