    I think the Brady bunch has been vindicated... Rusty, more seriuosly, the language we use is important. It actually shapes us and can shape others as well. I know you know this, you seem smart enough; more »

    Agreed with many points except locker room missed senior leadership but with Max that should help. Mostly disagree with Pasta > Iggy; to me Iggy was the best player on the ice a lot last year. I think more »

    Tampa Bay Tribine Lightening beat reporter Joe Smith wrote that Connolly has been playing sharper lately on the third line and is popular in the locker room. Maybe PC got something here.

    Chia made lemonade from a sour premature trade of Boychuck so that's good. To me the interesting question is why did Tampa bail on a 22 year old #6 overall pick? Hope the change of scenery is the cata more »

    In response to Bisson1's comment: I'm glad they didn't give up that much for Vermette. The asking price seems very high. Unless someone is desperate to move a guy at the deadline I don't think much wi more »

    Great start. Seidenberg skating better and better -- huge for a cup run. Vermette no back check on Marchand goal but he did have a nice view.

    He looks like he's figured it out about playing the whole ice. No more pond hockey on his game. He and Pasternac bring the speed the team was missing most of the year.

    The game speeds up after you've been clobbered a few times. He's figuring it out.

    He undervalued Boychuck in the trade market to gain flexibility (time). Didn't work.

    Spooner backed check well; in the defensive end he looked ok but somewhat insure.

    The year is likely shot mainly due to the Boychuck trade. With him IN the line up the D is solid, not scattered. How many more Ws would this have meant? Wow, got a second round pick, what a trade chip more »

    I like Cunningham on the fourth line. Plays with some heart and less so talent. Reminds me of a poor man's Randy Burridge.
