    Calling out Marco - what does "depth" in hockey.

    Marco says


    explain why you think we have more depth up front .


    dont forget horton.


    Bhab depth doesn't mean ur ahl players or 4th liners only. . It means he deep acteam is for ex. Rangers have no depth except for nash after thst it sinks rapidly. The same can be said of TB after stamkos way down


     


    I say:


    What's Horton got to do with DEPTH? I said DEPTH for Chrissakes, your regular lineup is your regular lineup. Like them or not that's who they are. DEPTH players are the ones you have when someone in the regular lineup gets hurt. This year Fraser, or Caron are better than DogVan or Pandolfo.


    Last year for callups they had


    Spooner, Caron, DogVan, Pandolfo, Soderberg, Tardif - MacDermind was already traded by the playoffs.


    This year for callups they have


    Spooner, Caron, Fraser, Nick Johnson, Cunningham, Lindblad, Koko, Florek


    This years callup team destroys last year's callup team, plus there were 8 of them this year and only 6 last year.

    Dog-man was just embarrassing last year. a waiver wire pickup from the Sens....lol. Can't believe he was the best the team could come up with. That they made it to Game 6 in the SCF says a lot about the strength of the core of this team and coaching abilities of CJ.

    So what I'm saying to summarize is, "depth" means the players you have after your 1st and 2nd lines.


    Yahoo answers agrees with me.

    Marco - please explain how Horton is a "depth" player.


     


    NAS - shut the f up.  You battle Rusty on stuff like this all the time.

    I haven't read any of the game day threads or the ones about this or that player.  I figured this might be interesting.  It wasn't, but at least it didn't mention Rask stealing a game.

    Re: Calling out Marco - what does

    If it's interesting you want, try these on for size:


    * the average zamboni puts 2000 miles a year on it's odometer


    * The 'h' in the Canadiens logo stands for "hockey" and not "habitants" as is commonly thought,  Montreal is technically the “Club de Hockey Canadien”, and were once the "Club Athletique Canadien"...hence the "A" that once sat in place of the modern "H". Habitant is a nickname, but is not the reason for the letter.


    * Jacques Plante loved to knit.


    * Phil Esposito was born with 8 toes on his left foot, the extra 3 were surgically removed while he was an infant.


    * OT was a regular thing in the NHL until WW2 came along and the teams had to keep on the train schedules.


    * Former Montreal goalie Ken Dryden is the ONLY NHLer to have won the Conn Smythe for best playoff performance BEFORE winning the Calder for Best Rookie Player.


    * To date, NAS has sent me 37 personal messages confessing he has "special feelings" for Chowda and Dez.


    * There was once a rule saying the team captain had to be on the ice at ALL times.


    * It was once a penalty to kick the puck in any circumstance

    Re: Calling out Marco - what does

    I was hoping* to read, Eriksson is out of shape, he has "big" shoulder pads, he is skinny, he is soft, he is trade bait this summer..... I am disappointed!  *satrical


    The last two games Eriksson was on the ice the last two minutes of the game.  CJ must think he is an excellent defensive player.  Eriksson makes sweet passes, he needs to shoot more.  Lastly Bergeron after his concussions took close to two years to gain his offensive skills.  


    "Don't judge me monkey"

    Re: Calling out Marco - what does

    I'm frustrated with Eriksson's lack of production just like everyone else.  I'm sure the guy didn't forget how to score.  I'm hoping his pitiful point production is directly related to his concussions and their lingering affects.


    Can you imagine if he returns to form next summer, a la Bergeron many years ago?


    Unstoppable.

    I thought Horton was horrible until the 2011 playoffs.  I'll give Loui the benefit of the doubt until this season is over.  We tend to pass judgement too soon around here.

    Re: Calling out Marco - what does

    I like what I see from Louie when there is a scramble in front or other stick battle situations, I don't think he had much of that with Dallas and it doesn't happen as much on the big Euro rinks.


    Correct answer is wait and see.


    My gut feel is that he is one of those guys whose career peak is at 29-32, there are ways in which he remids me of Jean Ratelle.
