Our PP reminds me of the Four Corners Stall in Basketball.

I loved Miller being repulsed over and over by some kind of slot force field.

I am all for blowing up the roster.  Need infusion of heart and grit.

We stopped staking.  We stink in our zone tonight, just back up and struggle to breakout cleanly.

We just need one trade.

I agree.  They help the other team  by running clock.

Well you are arguing two different things. You said there was "zero" chance he was even top 2 in D giveaways. And, by the stats, he is. He has 17 (before today) and Dahlin is worst with 18. 

Your second "no chance", I don't see how we can verify that if we can't put stock in the actual stat, like you said we shouldn't. So...ya. 

The stats are junk, as every skater on this team has more giveaways than that in a 10 game span haha. I once watched a couple games and tried to match the giveaway count in the stat column to what I was seeing on the ice and the differences were ungodly large, and I simply could not figure out what they were counting or looking at. 

We have a large enough sample of several players who vomit the puck like it's norovirus that there is no way you could convince me Jokiharju approaches them without meticulous video documentation, but that documentation would never show that result

Now THAT one, Ullmark should have anticipated that one and been in better position. Meh. Perfectly placed shot too.

On a 4 on 2 you don't know where thw puck is gonna go.

How many times has this been the same story?  It never ends. A few good games and back to bad habits.

Nah.  Just need a few pieces, albeit gritty pieces such as a few tough forwards that will play in front of the net.

eichel if you aim that shot 2 feet off the ice you're more likely to beat the goalie, and if it misses you're more likely to keep it in the zone

I was more just ribbing anyways. If you are honest with yourself, you know what this thread would have looked liked if Dahlin shot it into his pads and they went and scored.

In fairness to him, the one egregious evacuation was because the puck hopped on him, and he would have whiffed the quick shot, which would have sent CGY on another breakaway, it was the right thing to do to regather there

I do know, because I've seen that exact thing a million times.
