We still sellers at the deadline?
This .550 stretch of hockey has been fun
Credit for believing in the roster more than I did... :fist:
Lol I'm just messing. It was wishful thinking. Definitely greater than the sum of the parts at the moment and that's a credit to Sully and the staff

I mean, I gave up on the team literally the day the turnaround started.

Are they good enough to make an actual run? Probably not but this has been much more enjoyable to watch in the meantime and really isn't that why we're all here?

A three way tie for first, with 19 games remaining. It’s going to be a wild finish.

What if it's the most boring finish ever because we win every single game...? Then what...?

Well then we just have to win the whole damn thing.

Side note: the cynic in me is hoping we aren't peaking too early

I’d still like to see more scoring sprinkled through the bottom six a little more, but I’m not going to complain.

To be fair the guys that are scoring will be the bottom six when (if) we're healthy

$10 on it all going to **** when Malkin comes back. Not because of Makin, but because it's what this team does all the time. I'm glad Letang couldn't make it back for the Finals in 2016.

We had a bad turnover in the 3rd on the PP but Marino recovered incredibly well. Not often do you see a defenseman catch up to a forward and then muscle him out of the front of the net

Not sure how our D transformed from the beginning of the season but it’s tremendous right now

I'm glad he did as he scored the championship winning goal.

Our #2 and #3 guys stopped playing like 2nd pairing beer leaguers, for starters

I'm very happy to have been wrong about this stretch so far. This team has really got their **** together.

I'm not so sure about that. The players really seemed to take it to heart when management changed. They responded similarly in 2009 and 2016 after the coaching changes. This roster isn't as good as those teams, but they could possibly make a run at it this year. Maybe they'll win a series or two.

Definitely think there might be something to be said about the relaxing effect when a GM who wants to start trading people when things aren't going great leaves and is replaced by someone a little more stable.

That seems a little unfair considering how well it worked in 2016.

Or maybe they're trying to impress their new bosses...

I'd say it's the opposite. GMJR was all about lateral moves which wore thin I think.

Burke is... unique. He has a reputation of not putting up with guys who are easy to play against. A guy doesnt wanna be sent packing because Burke thinks he's a little dodint

He'd be on the taxi squad by now if we didn't lose a guy to injury every 9 minutes
