    I wouldn't be terribly disappointed to see Dahlstrom and Bitetto in for Kulikov and Sbisa on Tuesday after today's display.

    Sbisa's play from behind his net was stunningly bad. Waited forever for a breakout pass and inexplicably slapped it around the boards. That was a play from the 1990s but is a turnover in 2019.

    Yeah, I got that part. Important, but overrated aspect of playing C. I'm wondering about the finer points that I wasn't watching for.

    When he played C before he did pretty well in the easy to see things, FO and even scoring. Closer inspection showed that he was defensively very weak. Just seemed a little lost at times. I didn't notice that today.

    Just keep banking points....dreaming of a spring scenario where Buff replaces Sbisa and Samberg replaces Kulikov.

    Yes. I actually noticed him steal the puck off of a Jet in the 2nd period, deep in our zone only to shoot it wide and we got the puck out and up the ice.
    Otherwise...there was A #14 on Dallas today?

    It’s sad that a big win and the Jets going 4-0-1 in the last five has a post game thread filled with crickets whereas a loss will be loaded with calls for Maurice’s head.

    He was ok ok thought. Maurice is definitely sheltering him a bit by using the Scheifele and Lowry units for the tougher matchups.

    He is playing it safer but his positioning is obviously a bit off. What I like though is that he is better through the nz with the puck. As the third forward with two plahers ahead of him, he is looking to pass and gain zone entries with control. This has resulted in more offense off the rush. At wing he tends to chip and chase more.

    Good win! The team is on the right track and gaining points on divisional rivals is always extra nice.

    EWR looked decent.
    CSL looked dangerous, and they can become something special, given time.
    CLP were amazing.
    4th line sid what was expected of them.
    The D is entertaining. There’s never a dull moment when they have the puck. Morrissey was showing glimpses of returning to his own high level.
    Helly was good.
    The PP was good.
    Maurice was good.
    The win felt good.

    I’m just so happy with the win. Think I would have gotten a bit depressed if they had lost that one as it would have put quite a dent in their playoffs race. I think the team will make the playoffs!

    Something we need to keep in mind in evaluating Wheeler at C is that we are going to have Wheeler in the top 6 somewhere regardless. Playing 2nd line reduces his minutes a bit, which is a good thing in itself. If playing C also makes him more defensively aware we are gaining there too even if he is not an ideal C.

    I would still prefer to see Rosie getting a shot at 2C with Little out. Just swap him and Wheeler on that line. But the line seems to be functioning pretty well on the strength of the fit between Ehlers and Rosie.

    Still unable to watch the games beyond highlights due to travel but just stat-watching... one has to wonder how sustainable the recent run of wins is. Stats are worse than than the Ottawa Senators of the last couple of seasons. Banking points is nice but unless Maurice fixes whatever is going on, it will all be futile.

    The last games have been evenly fought and at times dominated by the Jets. What stats are you talking about? My eye test definitely doesn't agree with those, whatever they may be.

    Yeah. Nice clip. However, I dream of the day that Maurice would have the stones to call out our top guys (looking at you 55 and 26) when they don’t play well, instead of only the younger guys.
