He seemed on track for that at end of last year. And at times at beginning this year. I feel like it’s a new stand-offish Bahl. I don’t like it.

Best way to stop an elite PP. Stop giving the team any calls

No call on the holtz trip but one the other way. I hate when refs let worse slower teams commit blatant penalties to keep calls even.

Holtz non-call was probably right one…but they certainly don’t give Smith benefit of doubt.

Technically, if anyone gets extra 2, it was Horvat…was holding Smith when Lee dropped gloves.

That's the game you gotta win.

Schmid starter from here on out no doubt
Tierney still sucks, need him out of the lineup and the NHL
Keep smith as a 4LW for some grit. At least until everyone's healthy and even then I might play him over bastian tbh. Neither very good but Smithy at least provides versatility for the injury we seem to suffer every night.
Luke hughes for calder

I'm happy with virtually everyone but Vanacek, Hamilton, and Tierney tn

I thought Marino played really well too. He does so many of the little things well.

Get Haula + Timo back…and Tierney won’t be needed.

Expected Marino higher (but likely bc of his tough role, lack of help from bahl, and overshadowed by other pairs)
Expected Jack higher
Expected Dougie lower with his penalty differential this year
