Sutter doesn't take a shot in the shootout if it gets there

Sutter hit Luongo's glove like he was aiming for it.

Ya, even with how it's looked today.

Sutter against Lou isn't the best matchup for us. Not so sure it was deserving of a penalty shot, but it's done with.

I have thought forever that a failed PS should be a 2 min PP.

They've been calling anything close a penalty shot this year. Which is fine and how it should be IMO.

I'm not going to look into matchups and ice time but he is the worst defenseman on the ice by far just looki at all 6 guys. Would someone else be better in his exact situation? Perhaps, I'd like to find out to see if letting him walk next year is wise.


I foresee a low ball offer, but yeah, he's on the ice for a lot of goals. He looks difficult to have as a defensive partner.

Will gladly take at least one point against a Western foe.

Best 1pm game ever?

Maata looks like a guy that can learn at an accelerated pace... You can say that about a few kids... Sending him down for more playing time could actually hinder his growth.

PP would've been the correct call anyways. Oh well.

We had some good afternoon games the year Detroit beat us in the SCF. But since then, maybe.

I think that usually you let a guy age for strength reasons, not skill. Maatta seems physically able to keep up with the NHL level of play...

There is no way that Martin, Orpik, Scuds, Nisky, Letang and Bortuzzo don't get hurt again this year. Rather have Maatta around to play than Engellend or even Despres right now.

The 40 game threshold should be after the Olympic break, yes? We should know Vokouns stays by then to come off LTIR

If Maatta is capable of playing at an NHL level, who cares about contract year status?
