Stuart - Crombeen

Quite a few punches thrown....poorly, missing their target, or with little to no effect....

Draw/Edge Crombeen

I've seen enough of his act....time to tell him to stop fighting and just be a checking forward.

I watched this game almost entirely using the slo-mo button on my DVR. Then I remembered I was at the game.

Great, concise description of their game and esp. that 5-on-3, DD. I notice other teams have a definite plan, set patterns they use on 2-man advantages that make scoring a goal a virtual certainty. Lightning, meh--not so much. Just skate it up ice again, very, very slowly and deliberately, after the nth clear allowed. Then start the passing around, again, using extreme slowness. What's the rush? Do it lackadaisically, without urgency. Casually, lazily, almost hypnotically. See if your own sleepwalking can lull the opposition into a dreamy, alpha-wave state of partial slumber. Maybe a shooting opportunity might happen to open up from way out near the blue line. If not, continue passing. Then float one in, purposelessly, and kind of hope for the best. Hey, at least we're not getting scored on for a couple minutes--we hope!

Just going from memory off the new jumbotron (which is beyond fantastic BTW), but for once at least BJ did not do his punching bag impression, but got Stuart's toque off and delivered a few slugs to the hairy coconut, including one that looked like it caught him hard, right on the ear. IMO Crombeen does not have to destroy a guy or put him in the hospital to score a clear win, in one of the only interesting moments of the entire evening.

In general, a person could have had as much entertainment outside watching the sidewalk concrete continue to harden

No offense, but that's kinda why "fight fans" don't take a lot of "non fight fans" opinions seriously (I know that doesn't matter, I'm just explaining) when it comes to fights. It actually is a pretty big difference between "doing something" during a fight, and just "going through the motions"....a fight that bad only looked good because the game sucked.

Crombeen should be a little more assertive against these lesser fighters. I've said it before, I think he's still a little leery after the Rinaldo fight.

Can someone explain to me again why Purcell is so streaky when he skates with the most consistent offensive player on our team in Stamkos? Stamkos has points in every game but 4 this year. Teddy's half way to a 4 game pointless streak right now.

I haven't noticed him making plays anywhere on the ice nearly as much since the penguins game, and one of those times was watching him give up the puck in our corner to avoid getting hit.

He seems to be back to his 1 game on fire, three or four near-invisible routine.

This is what got him traded from the Kings.

Not really. The Kings system at that time, was for creative forwards as well... as Tampa's is / has been for goaltenders. He didn't get a fair shake there.

His inconsistency isn't the reason we're struggling. Let's not ship him out for Ville Leino quite yet

What got him traded from the Kings was the fact his best season with them was 4 goals and 12 assists in 40 games. He's MUCH better now and we're still complaining about it.

Teddy was also getting Nacho minutes / linemates with the Kings.
