    Corvo

     I thought that McQuaid and Boychuk were awful passers but Corvo has to be the worst. He regularly tries these long outlet passes and if they're not intercepted and turned into goals by the opposition, such as last night, they rarely connect and usually wind up as icing calls. Isn't this guy a hugh liability back there?

    Re: Corvo

    I think he is a liability as well but again I disagree with you about Boy and Adam so it has hard for me to concur to much. I see your point but he is well covered by Seidenberg every night. It is crazy but he is up there in plus minus. I guess another side effect of playing with sidenberg. IN the end Corvo will have to have a stellar play off to stay on this team next year. There are moments he skates well. I guess is one plus.

    Re: Corvo

    I'd take uh oh Joe over Kaberle, Wideman and Morris anyday, all game long right now. Like many Defensman he can look real bad at times and very glaring with brain faat bad passes up the boards.

    There is no doubt in my mind Corvo has helped to upgrade the PP but I would not be surprised if Chiarelli moved him if he can get an upgrade because Corvo has a tradeable contract.

    Re: Corvo

    Not me, I'd take Wideman every day and Sunday over Corvo. Wideman is a far better shooter, far better PP guy. He can cough up the puck, sure, but he's a better player than Corvo. To be frank, I'm disappointed in Joe on a team where 95 percent of the roster is playing to my satisfaction and I'm sure to Coach J. Corvo has got to get better. Overall, he's a glaring disappointment. In fact, I think I'd take Kaberle over Corvo too.

    Have you checked the B's goals against stats?  McQuaid and Boychuk are certainly 5 and 6 on the B's depth chart and even they are playing great.

    Corvo and his long passes reminds me a lot of what Wideman use to do. Sometimes it works most times it doesnt.

    Re: Corvo

    IMO Chiarelli is looking to upgrade the defense if he can. Corvo is only one of the weak links on defense as both he and Boychuck do have brain missing thoughts frequently. However, they both are doing well enough until someone better is available. I also noticed that Pouliot didn't make any serious mistakes with Bergie, but he is not much of a helper. Even his goal, he missed an open net, and luckily the goalie misplayed the puck so he had a second chance.

    Re: Corvo

    seeing more of darth quaider with chara.  wonder if boychuk is trade bait.  

    would rather st peter grab a bottom pair defenseman before the trade deadline so b's have 8 going into the playoffs (like last year).  you want depth unlike the queens having to play andrew alberts as as top 4.

    interesting that claude has not had to reunite the chara-seids shutdown pairing.  guess corvo can't be trusted with anyone else. 

    i also like the pp points... chara-pevs and seids-corvo.  noticed the latter scored on the pp with the khl line last night.

    I'll take Corov over Wideman, or Kaberle, but Morris it's a wash.

    Re: Corvo

    McQuaid's passing is never worse than average.

    Boychuks passing is usually slightly above average, but he has those games where his brain is clearly left in his locker for safe keeping...

    Corvo is a turnover machine.

    If Wideman were as good as you say he would have been part of the successful re-build of Florida not ushered out. The only reason Dennis is having success in Washington is because he has Backstrom to his right then Semin to his left with Ovie floating during the PP. I can live with Corvo's mistakes allot more because of his contract but couldn't with Wideman's contract.

    Looks to me like Corvo is a streaky player. Given the way the Bs are playing right now I'm not too worried and he is better than Kaberle

     If it were just that bad pass last night, I wouldn't have posted. He routinely makes these bad long passes that end up in turnovers or icings. As for Kaberle, I didn't like him either.

     Certainly they don't all bring the same level of talent to the ice and Rask and Thomas seem to have a knack for wiping away lots of glaring turnovers. But this post was about Corvo and his passing skills or lack thereof. The giveaways that lead to goals are one thing but the unnecessary icings are also troubling and will eventually lead to more goals as well.

    Re: Corvo

    Id take Wideman if the contracts were a wash.  They arent so I would take Corvo.  Corvo is prone to the bad plays similar to Wideman.  Corvo's gift is skating and playing the PP. 
    In Widemans defense I have watched a lot of Capitals games this year.  Most nights he is very good for them.  He is being relied upon a lot b/c of the Green injury. 
    I mean even James Wiz bopped around from team to team for a while before he found a home.

    Overall he's played better than I thought he'd be. Some of his risky passes do drive me crazy. But I'll take him over Kaberle.

    Get rid of him. I'd like to see Kampfer instead of Corvo. At least, he will learn to play at the NHL level. He won't make more mistake than Corvo. He has a good shot too.
