<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>Yeah I don't think CAR is going to trade with us. They are neck and neck with us in that division with Philly.
We are all bubble teams at the moment. Any one of them could not make it.

I really don't think the players on the ice are the issue with the power play. It starts with them not dumping the puck in and skating it in.
Sullivan simply does not adjust his game plan well. I don't know what to say other than that. I don't look forward to this team facing the Islanders because of that. Trotz has got his number and he doesn't change the game plan.
I think they could move JJ I don't know. I'd like to think it gets easier after this year. His play is better, less contract length, cap hit seems smaller. We'll see at the end of the season. FA will have sticker shock. Bottom teams who need bodies might want to talk as they are probably thinking, why spend big on defense when we aren't a playoff team. They can hold him for a year, send him to Seattle so it's only a 1 deal maybe for a team. I don't know.</div></div>

agree on Car not likely being a trade partner...which is a shame, because I do think it could be a good fit for all involved. Isn't Recchi running the PP or is that shared? I know he did last year as well, but yeah they are dumping the puck in, as opposed to carrying it in with speed as in the past. I'm not seeing that reverse pass going into the NZ with speed as much either. When they were running full steam ahead, that's what they did. Why make that change...unless they felt the need to eliminate those SH opportunities...which IMO wasn't the reason for the SH opportunities, but whatever....I don't remember every chance they gave away last year, but I feel like the D to D pass in the OZ was getting picked off, which created a breakaway in the other direction...
