Don't see why we have to have a Staal thread in the GDT.


Because Fleury is sitting tonight. :slug:

Thank God this is Minn, if this was a real hockey team we'd be getting killed.

I know, not supposed to use that word around DH.

how about some embellishment there?

These players are acting like they've been hit by grenades when someone brushes up against them. I'd even say that was still a penalty on Niskanen, but that Wild player acted foolishly there.

Because depth players don't play on your first line, like ever. They add depth. You know, 2nd - 4th line depth. Isn't it pretty obvious?


Exactly.


People expect things from him that just aren't there. Then when he doesn't do those "things", they say, "see, he sucks!"


I honestly believe that the silent 80% majority understand that both of the above statements are true. It's the 10% fringe on each side that believes that either he's a would-be all-star overshadowed by 87 & 71 or that he's only a fringe NHLer.

That fringe % make me want to jump off a bridge. Or buy a Staal jersey, or something... :?

if any other team lost their top 2 centers, would their fans complain that their #3 guy wasn't a #1 center?

So let me get this straight -- last night, a Lose-a-peg player gets a shot to the face and they stop play immediately but Engelland gets hit in the face there and play continues, almost leading to a goal??

Notice last night when we hit one of their players with a shot the whistle sounded immediately, tonight, we get hit and no whistles to be found. Nothing like consistency.
