I think the guy is grabbing some coke around 9 seconds in, lol.

In any case, we gotta win these kind of games.

Tedenby scratched, of course. And then DeBoer goes on to say his bottom six are not good enough. Yeah.

Clarkson Falls Down
01-06-2012, 12:00
That bottom 6 is literally a joke. A total joke. Tim Sestito isn't close to NHL caliber yet getting 3rd line ice time. A total joke.

Yup...PDB isn't impressing me so far with his decisions so far. It is hard to criticize in hockey as good/bad coaching isn't as easy to see as in football but he is making it easy for us lately with some of his decisions.

Clarkson Falls Down
01-06-2012, 12:14
Yeah he isn't being given too much, but he's giving roles to guys who shouldn't be in the NHL, much less on a 3rd line. Tedenby has been far from great, but he gives a line the ability to possess the puck in the offensive zone and keep the puck out of our end.

I have not seen one thing that positive that Tim Sestito has done for this team in the 2 stints that he's had with this team the past 2 years.

01-06-2012, 12:51
I think Sestito may have won a contest or something to play with an NHL team for a year. There is no evidence in his play on this ice to suggest that he be given an increased role. Nothing.


now I know what you guys meant when you said Bleedred just posts paragraphs of meaningless drivel

Yep, 5 paragraphs of saying nothing interesting or intelligent. Just pointless drivel.

Dr. Doom
01-06-2012, 13:06
DeBoer is starting to fall out of my favor. Some of his judgements with players have been extremely poor, he has not been able to dress a passable 4th line all season, and he gets out-coached by other coaches with match-ups.

01-06-2012, 14:14
My concern isn't so much that that stiff Sestito is getting a bigger role (although his zero point, a shot every 4th game *** belongs nowhere near the NHL), it's Zajac being shut down.

vonbonds
01-06-2012, 14:28
Lou & company might feel that Palmieri and Zharkov (if not others) might be better on the 4th line right now but it would hinder their long term development as they will be getting more ice time on the A and in more important situations. That is the only plausible reason I can think of to not immediately upgrade that line. Unless a miracle happens this isn't shaping up to be a team that will go deep in the playoffs if it makes it at all come season end so why stunt anyone's growth if they feel they have long term potential with the team.

Dr. Doom
01-06-2012, 14:38
Isn't it about icing the best possible team that you can? I can tell you right now that isn't what we are doing.

Agreed with Dr.Doom, 100%.

01-06-2012, 14:44
I don't know if it is DeBoer making these calls or Lou, but hot damn is the roster a hot mess right now. I would love to ask Lou if he truly believes that out of our whole system he thinks that this is the best (and I'm going to pull a trottier move here) HOCKEY team that we can put on the ice.

vonbonds
01-06-2012, 14:47
I was just throwing out an idea why they haven't brought up NaPalm or Zharky. I obviously don't know why. As far as Tedenby goes...clearly he doesn't fit with this team right now unless he plays on the third line...consistently. If he can't produce over a brief-ish period of time then he should get demoted.

You got me. They'd give a lot more than anyone in the bottom 6 besides Clarky.

As for why Tedenby is up if both of these guys are down, I'm probably guessing it has a lot more to do where he got picked. Just like where he got picked was the reason that Henrique started the year in the AHL while his preseason performance suggested otherwise.

I think that the roster is really unorganized. Too many guys playing out of roles, too many enforcers on the active roster.

This is a good win. I loved how they competed in the third. We needed a strong finish and got one.

This team needs to get healthy in a hurry.

I don't care so much that they did not play particularly well. They didn't go weak mentally in third, that's something positive. Although Panthers were probably a bit gassed since they played last night.

I sat behind the swedes wives/gf's tonight and holy **** are they all smoking

Tallinder's wife was there with the kids and as we were trying to figure out who the other women were who were dressed way to nice to be at a hockey game, one of the women pulled her phone out, whispered to the one next to her (believe Tedenby's gf) and then waved up to the suite next to Lou's where Josefson was and he waved back

Dat *** on his gf.....:amazed: good for him
C'mon would you expect anything less from the swedes haha

I love how the first comment was all chicks...first things first :laugh:
This now means that the gdt's now need to be blessed by babes as a new superstition :laugh:

Good win tonight...er last night. Did a good job holding the lead.

Not always pretty but that's what happens when the 4th line gives up an awful 4 on 2 goal for their second goal.

Zalewski was at least more useful than Sestito. Dunno how long it will last though.

That is like saying a cassette player is more useful than an 8-track player. Both are pretty useless at this point in time.

HF logic. Lose 3-2 on three breakaways.... you suck.
Win 3-2 on two clean shots..... you're awesome.
