Agreed regarding McLeod.

If he continues to provide what he has shown thus far, it'll definitely add another dynamic to our Top 6.

Also glad to see Khaira back in.

I would have thought the best thing for Khaira would have been to be shelved for the season. His bell was rung pretty hard twice, and the last time it didn't look like it took much of a hit to do it. Hope I'm wrong.

Agreed, between that fight and then what looked like a seemingly mild check that didnt involve his head he appears to be tender. I guess with Kassian out he is really our only grit fwd. Its too bad as he was having a great season up until he ate that punch.

I wonder if Staloc will get any starts before end of regular season. As good as smith has been, feels a bit like our run in 06 where we are one bad play from having him injured.

I'm trusting the med staff with their decision on this. If he is cleared, he should be fit and ready to go.

As already noted in this thread, Khaira was having a solid season till those two incidents. Hopefully he has recovered and will show the same form early in the season. That'd help bolster our bottom 6.

I'd like to see stalock get a few starts in as well. Would be nice to see what he is capable of and help assess our goaltending situation.

Lets wait until we have a spot secured in the playoffs before we start giving our 3rd stringer some time. But once our spot is secured, I am fully on board giving him a couple of games.

Agreed. We've clinched a spot now. Might as well explore that possibility.

That should be the plan now. It would be nice if Mcdavid had a couple 5 point games. I’d hate to see them play him to much to get the 100. They are in a position to rest some guys for the last few games.

I've been outrageously busy with work this year and haven't had time to post much but for a long time I have been meaning to give my huge "mea culpa" regarding Draisaitl. He never ever had to find his offensive game...he's a stud on offense...but his flybys, his floating around in the D-zone, and his unwillingness to backcheck....are pretty much gone. Leon seems to really want it this season and I think if this keeps up, and we get solid goaltending...this could actually be the year.

I am very happy to be very wrong on Leon this season. He's moving his feet, he's backchecking, and he is not missing his assignment in the slot as much as he used to.

I have a couple of new "targets" haha, but the day after we clinch a playoff berth, I'll keep er positive.

GO OIL!!!
