    It is a god problem for the coaching staff to have. No matter what they have to sit one or two excellent defensemen, Johnny may play tomorrow and Frisch may sit! They must have decided they need an extra forward more than an extra D and Casey can play heavy which might also be needed. It is a series where an injury or ejection could happen and it’s easier to play five D then to play short up front.

    I'm not sure it's between 15 & 17....right now I think the sixth spot is between 2 & 17

    Bast is a proven commodity, Peski has played himself into the clear cut #4 on this team (in my opinion), and how do you take Frisch out with how steady he has been lately?

    Frisch is playing on his offside tonight with Bast, we shall see how that it affects his play.

    Frisch played on the left side last Friday too....

    Not to be outdone by the Minnesota Twins losing the most consecutive playoff games in a row last fall, the Vikings now have the most playoff losses in NFL history. Not bad for a team that entered the league in 1961. #skol

    True.....buy they still have the MM trophy#skol

    It's always been clear he has a lot of skill, but it took a while for that to start paying off, as it did with Kawaguchi.    But he's really coming on this year.   Seeing that slow bloom and the manner in which he takes penalties, it makes me wonder if he is just maybe doesn't have a lot of on-ice intelligence.   Pure speculation on my part and probably not very responsible speculation at that. 

    Stay in your lane bro

    Putting on my Moderator hat for a moment...........

    I suggest the two of you take your conversation to P.M. if you can't carry on without insulting one another.


    Can we just have them stop carrying on....but continue to insult one another?

    I agree, but the full-on effort thing is a little complicated.  I think most of our boys give complete effort under Berry as they did for Hak and Deano.  But a player has to have confidence in his split-second choices in order to commit to them quickly and with speed.  Some players work their hardest but are a little tentative due to lower on-ice intelligence, lack of experience, more cautious nature, or just lower skill level.  I think Stecher has a combination of high energy and high on-ice intelligence that allows him to move aggressively and effectively.   Not all players have that, and not all teams have that on their rosters.   We fans are quick to conclude when they lose that it is from lack of effort.  But even when they seem to be chasing too much or sitting back, that can be attributed to other shortcomings, and it's sometimes unfair for us to say the players are lazy or don't care enough. 

    You combine talent and confidence in a player or on a team and they will usually look like they are outworking the other team. 

    Or maybe not.   :D

    Definitely maybe not.
