Great comments, guys. Jeff - "If you’re going to dress John Scott at forward, he’s going to have to play more than four goddamn minutes." I know you're not advocating for Scott at forward and that sentence started with a BIG IF, but playing Scott at forward must stop. I agree that you can't have a forward playing 4 minutes but that's what happens when you Scott is on the fourth line. I would love to poke around in Q's mind to get some understanding of his position on Scott. I will admit that Scott's defensive game has improved to almost tolerable, but he is NOT a forward. It's almost as if Q is trying to play with our minds.
Very nice round table. Few thoughts on your thoughts. Tim: Emery for a trade? Even though that is food for thought, I hope to god that never happens. That would place the entire team back on Crawfords shoulders and he doesn't need that pressure. Right now, I'm sure that he is comfortable with the fact that he has a great backup and some of that pressure of carrying this team is relieved. Then with Kaner. The move at the beginning of the season to center seemed to have a very positive impact on his play in their own zone. He has stepped up his defensive play greatly. Also, he might have been a wing for a few years, but if he produces at a high level at center, that could just help change him into a much more rounded player. Why would that be bad. I don't know if this question has been answered before or not, but why does Hammer not check people? Right now he has 24 hits. Much less than one a game. He is 6'3"! I'm 6'3" and I know how to use my size to my advantage. That's all for now. Thanks guys!
