re: Fresh Ice! NHL Season-Long Thread, Part 2 - Baloo
I never said the Habs' roster sucks. I said it was fairly ordinary, and they are in first place overall because of Price. They would be a playoff team without Price. I don't think the Caps are a playoff team without Ovi, though it would be close. But here's the top 9 goal scorers for the Habs the...

[quote]Islanders don't scare you?[/quote] Isles haven't beaten the Caps in regulation all year (Caps are 2-0-2). And one of their OT wins was total BS. I just don't think the Isles have outplayed the Caps once this year, so it's tough to be scared of them as a potential matchup. I mean, I know t...

Well, I don't care that much about PK's. I was more arguing that the Habs are a decent roster propped up by a phenomenal goalie. It makes them a Cup contender, but they only go as far as Price can take them. Without Price, they are probably fighting with Boston for playoff positioning (still easily ...

Actually, I'd argue the forwards are more important on a penalty kill, as they harrass the point of attack. A defenseman's job doesn't change that much from 5 on 5 to the penalty kill, but a forward's job radically changes, as there is no center help. Still, most teams run a power play on the ph...

You changed the question, so I'll answer that one. No, I wouldn't trade rosters with the Habs. I think every playoff team in the East is pretty much even except maybe the Rangers. I'd trade rosters with them. but I also don't expect a Habs fan to want to trade rosters with the Caps. Dance with w...

re: Fresh Ice! NHL Season-Long Thread, Part 2 - Baloo
Yes. It's not perfect, obviously. The 2nd line is a giant black hole right now, and even with its sheltered minutes, it can't drive possession or create many chances. That's an obviously large problem. But the Caps have two players currently tied for the NHL lead in points scored. So the top line...

Washington's FenClose is 51.8%. That's not earth shattering, as you'd like it to be above 52% to be a Cup contender usually, but it's close enough, given that it's 4th in the Eastern conference. all of the awesome possession teams other than the Isles and Bolts are out West. The Habs are at 50.6%...

I don't think the Habs roster is all that great. Their FenClose is right at about 50%, and clustered with teams like the Sharks, Canes, and Panthers. Their 171 goals scored ranks in the bottom half of the league, and it's the same level as the Leafs and Sens. What they have is the best goalie on ...
