Stephens looked much better than Verheaghe or Volkov did from the word jump, IMO. Good on the forecheck and definitely stirred it up in front of the opposing cage.

He will be here for awhile. TJ now listed as “week to week”.

I guess the weeks are over.

Stephens returned to Syracuse.

Wonder if this is just a paper transaction. We only had 12 healthy forwards, and that was before Kucherov went down Saturday.

Joe Smith is speculating that if Kucherov is unavailable that Volkov or another top 6 will be brought up.

More accountability. Cooper putting his foot down it seems.

He's going to have to bulk up to truly make an impact long-term in the NHL IMO. There have been way too many times where he just gets completely muscled off pucks and loses puck battles along the wall. I feel like guys that skate as well as Joseph does sometimes need to learn that they don't have to go 110% every shift. Maybe this will help him slow the game down a bit.

I applaud this move. Jo has been struggling and it gives other players an opening and ice time.

Bout time they put a higher emphasis on team, accountability, system, consistency, etc.

As stated by someone earlier, Vasy's shakier play may be a blessing as it exposes the chinks in the armour and leads to the coaches voice having more weight. I felt last year the players weren't forced to buy in because their mistakes were covered up by Vasy. We assume Cooper is not delivering the right messages...maybe sometimes it's that they players aren't buying in...for whatever reason.
