Game 57 : Blackhawks @ 26 Games Left

Recommended Posts

Thought the vets struggled today. Wheeler was bad. Buff was -5. I know but that's interesting. Perreault. Stafford even Enstrom wasn't good. 

Perreault has 4 goals. Stafford has less. The difference between winning and losing is these guys scoring more. Kids look spent but try hard. Vets really weren't good tonight. Little is more important to this team than buff and wheeler

Helle was 912. Pretty good numbers. Several huge saves and really had no chance on all 3.. 3rd one looked weak but on replay buff screens him and it looks like it actually deflects off Buffs ass.  

I'm not a fan of plus minus buy minus 5 for Buff is brutal

Buff is being paid 7.5 million dollars, for the way he is playing that is highway robbery, so many minutes such poor play, on the other hand Trouba has become what i thought he would become coming out of Michigan sky is the limit for this guy looks like his head is on straight this year.

This was the risk on signing Buff....  in hindsight it may have been better to have made that big trade with him last season when he was at his highest value.

What concerned me back then and more so now is that his decline will be fast and furious...

The brain cramps are concerning but he gets caught floating around in the offence zone to many times in a game this year and doesn't have the energy to get back on d.

He leads the league in ice time. Played almost 29 minutes tonight. Think if you could play him 23 to 25 minutes a night instead he'd have more energy. Really being overplayed this year

So if things are going like last year does that mean the 2nd pick overall after the lottery.:)

Hishier or Patrick or do we go Liljegren Valimaki Heiskanen. Tough to turn down the centers but need those D men badly

I would normally say BPA but your right we need a defenceman and if lucky enough we will get our choice get a Swede to replace a Swede even though he plays on the right side.

They're almost identical to when Noel was fired. No forward progress even as the talent increases 

saying that however, the issue tonight was Crawford was very good, Hawks better team D and turn overs/bad decisions. 

But okay that way most nights and they win. Perreault looked determined tonight. Thought postma and chiarot were decent. Morrossey is going to be really good 

Helle was good. As good as he needs to be really.

TSN had an interesting stat. If you don't count games Helle was pulled, he has a .926. 

Of course it's taking away his worst games and if you did that with every goalie their stats would improve. But you don't get pulled every game. Only really bad games. If he can cut down on the really bad games, he's a solid goalie.

You mean Crawford was as good as heneeded to be. We were out goalied even though Helle played not bad. Bottom line is he let in 3 and Crawford only let in 2 and one was in garbage time.
