Zeke is a flop show, but we knew that already.
Tune in to see what kind of goofy shit our coach does tonight. Connor Brown in net? Could happen. Ron Hainsey on Matthew's wing? Maybe. Patrick Marleau first out for 3 on 3 overtime? Bet your balls on it son. Nothing is too crazy for...
We've had a chance to see some of our kids over the last few games, so it's probably a good time to throw up our personal prospect lists. I'll be borrowing from the Hockeys Future ranking system for the grades ( http://www.hockeysfuture.com/playerprojections/ ). I'm going to use 50 NHL games...
I'm getting sick of doing these in April.
Okay, the big questions going into the off season:
- The right side of the blueline just isn't good enough

Matt Martin could earn his salary for the year by punching out Gudbranson and Dorsett tonight.
Somehow I think the tone of this off season thread is going to be a bit more upbeat than the last few....
Bozak, & Holland traded. Lupul to Robidas island...
So....it looks like Dermott has #6 wrapped up, so we're on to the discussion for #7.
As much as Timashov impressed me in my first look at him, it's really hard to not give Connor Brown the nod here personally, though I think Timashov's D+0 production being so much higher than Browns D+0 & D+1...
So the run off is still going on between Johnson & Brown, but we know one of them is going to be in the 6 spot.
If Brown wins, I've got Johnson next on my personal list. If Johnson wins, I've got Dermott...
