Hope we don't do anything stupid when Ward is healthy

Bobrovsky! That was one of the best games I've ever been to. Bob is unreal.

Bob had an outstanding game... Columbus is Carolina's kryptonite; we always struggle with them.

Doby is absolutely our best goalie. Dude is amazing with his stick. Reflexes are great. Positioning is perfect the vast majority of the time. Has a knack for finding the puck at the last second when it comes through traffic.

Last night, the goals he gave up were almost entirely on the play in front of him. Every goalie is going to let some through. All goalies play better when they're not having to keep the team in the game by themselves. Sad part is, we really didn't play bad. Bobrovsky was absolutely stellar for Columbus. Dude is no joke. We skated as hard as we have all year and just couldn't get the goals. Game SHOULD have been 2-0, but that last goal came due to us just being caught with our pants down and tired. Wide open look at an angle, and Doby likes stepping out on those.


When Cam is healthy, I say throw him out there against the first weak opponent we have, hope he has a good game, and trade him. Get what we can get, because Doby is the future in net. There is no question there.

Ward's not going to get traded because of his contract, he's here for the long haul. The team has been looking to move Doby or Peters all year long and they've just been waiting for all three to be healthy. Whoever has the better trade value between Peters and Doby will be traded. That's been the plan for a while now.

Which fuging sucks. Ward is a bum. Flat out. I defended him the past few seasons. Vehemently. But now...I just can't do it. The guy is a shell of his former self and a hindrance to our success as a team.

Maybe in 8 years, once we're rid of Cam and we luck up with another solid goalie, we can get a Cup.

Dobby's the easiest to trade of the three right now.  If he's hell bent on testing the FA market then why not get something for him now?

Because we have a chance to get to the postseason for the first time in a long time and he gives you the best opportunity.

 

Justin Peters could probably fetch at least a fourth, possibly a third...

 

I don't see Ward being traded because I doubt Carolina wants to go into free agency without a goalie under contract (and Ward's contract is brutal). However they coudl decide to part from Ward... maybe send him (and Riley Nash) to the Oilers for Sam Gagner and a 2nd round pick... Then next year re-sign Dobby and bring up Altshuller.

 

Then for the rest of this season...

 

Jeff Skinner - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Nathan Gerbe - Jordan Staal - Elias Lindholm

Tuomo Ruutu - Sam Gagner - Jiri Tlusty

Patrick Dwyer - Manny Malhota - Radek Dvorak

Drayson Bowman

 

Andrej Sekera - Justin Faulk

Ron Hainsey - Brett Bellemore

John Michael-Liles - Jay Harrison

Mike Komisarek - Ryan Murphy

 

Anton Khudobin
