Careful What You Wish For – 1st Round Preview: The Blues Forwards Pt. 2

We’ll just keep rolling along with the grace from the Lord above, and finish out the Blues forwards corps.

3rd Line: Derek Roy-Patrik Berglund-Brenden Morrow

At least, this is my guess. Morrow and Berglund are injury worries. Berglund also may play on the second line with Steve Ott here before he and Morrow get into a fight amongst themselves.

Berglund is the Blues biggest enigma. You look at the size, the hands, the smarts, and he really should be one of the better centers around. Some nights, some shifts, he looks like that. But then a lot more nights, and a lot more shifts, you don’t even know he’s there. He should be the prime source of secondary scoring for the Blues, and he just isn’t enough nights. And this is when he’s healthy, which he isn’t now.

Sometimes I forget that Derek Roy is even on this team. He was hurt for a bit there, has been a healthy scratch too. He’s got nine goals. Maybe he’s their John Druce, but I doubt it.

Five years ago I would have been terrified of playing Brenden Morrow in a playoff series. There were few players better bred for playoff hockey. Nasty, big, with a knack for scoring killer goals. Now? Slow, still nasty but in all the wrong ways, and half your skaters on the ice would have to come down with vertigo for him to score regularly. He’ll be part of their thug-squad and causing ruckuses after whistles, but I don’t see where he does much else. If Berglund isn’t on this line, the Hawks could really expose Ott and Morrow with speed.

4th Line: Magnus Paajarvi-Maxim Lapierre-Dumpster Boy

I’ve always liked Paajarvi when he was an Oiler, but it took injuries and an age for him to crack the lineup, and he may be the first one out if Tarasenko plays. He’s a smart two-way player with some offensive flash that has been snuffed out in St. Louis either by Hitch’s ways or playing with utter garbage. The rest is more of the thug-squad. Lapierre can win a draw and that’s about it before he goes off to cross-check Patrick Kane in the back of the head or slash at his knee or whatever other cheap bullshit he’s going to pull before running away wetting himself when anyone with any size comes to confront him. Ryan Reaves… well, if Cieslak will allow me, lives in a dumpster behind the Purina factory (TM).

Wild Card – Vladimir Tarasenko: The story is that he is going to play at some point this series, but we don’t know when. How effective he can be after six weeks off with a broken hand is up for debate. He also doesn’t exactly have a playoff pedigree, because he was scratched for most of last year’s flameout against the Kings. But if healthy and not shying from the moment, Tarasenko is the only other source of inspiration that the Blues have. He can create his own shot and space, but he can also get buried along the walls. Maybe rested, maybe rusty, may be back after it’s too late.

  • Paul the Fossil

    I’m told that Uncle Dale just won the draft lottery. Does Kaner have a little brother?

    • http://www.lotsofbutterplease.com/ I am not Chico Maki

      Good for them … I kinda like rooting for FLA to get to the playoffs.

      • unkind

        I kinda do too.

      • VanDorp’sMullet

        FLA getting to the playoffs would be a little bit like the Hawks AHL affiliate making the NHL playoffs and would be awesome. It would be even more fun if Jack Skille were still running around like a chicken with his head cut off.

        • zacked

          He got called up for the Blue Jackets, not sure if he’ll play in the postseason but he played in the last couple games.

      • jordyhawk

        Maybe we could help accelerate that process by shipping them a proven winner or two from our roster who may not be part of our 2014-15 plans.

    • unkind

      I kinda felt bad for buffalo when i heard.

    • dirkgrahamcrackers

      do that meen what it think I meens?

  • Waylon

    Judging from your analysis of the Blues, it would appear that once again success will depend on our 3rd and 4th lines picking apart the other team’s secondary lines. If my grade school powers of reasoning are still intact, that means that the Hawks may be able to scorch the shit out of them within the appropriate match ups.

    • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

      Obviously Reimer and Bernier were covering the puck too much and not advancing the play.

      • Z-man19

        Yeah, goalie was definitely a problem area. THREE HUNDRED, are you kidding me?

        • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

          Yes Z-Man I am kidding you! Most definitely a smidge of sarcasm in my comment! lol

          • Z-man19

            I caught yours, you missed mine :)

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Nobody likes a showoff!

          • Z-man19

            As a team, TOR was 25th in FO% at 48.3%, not a good combination

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            That would explain the Male Pattern Baldness in Randy Carlyle

          • Z-man19

            Probably also explains why Reimer and Bernier still have the jitters

      • bizarrohairhelmet

        Dude, they totally should have had better save%s since, by definition, they were facing lower shot qualities every game.

        • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

          FO% and Zone-Starts =/= Higher/lower QoS, we all now this little fact.

          • bizarrohairhelmet

            Hold the puck until you exhaust your opponent and they fall down yields the best QoS. Of course, one has to have players that can possess the puck.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            A CF% of 42.1% (29th) is not going to help you out on that either.
            .
            Wow,
            CF = 42.1
            500+ more Face offs in your defensive end than Offensive End
            FO% = 48.3
            .
            What could go wrong?

    • 10thMountainFire

      Not Chico, your boys need to leave the nest.

    • VanDorp’sMullet

      But did they have more hits than their opponents? Also, do they send messages with fights?

      • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

        That is why they are now Stanley Cup Draft Lottery favorites.

        • DJ

          Apparently, Florida won the lottery.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            I see that now, did not know when I made the comment. TOR can’t even lose properly!
            .
            Well, at least VAN did not get it! lol

      • unkind

        Do the fights help them win games?

        • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

          Depends,
          If you are in the Meathead JR and Mike Milbury world of Hockey, FIGHTS ARE HOCKEY. So be extension, yes they win the games.
          .
          If you actually understand the game and how it has changed in the past decade, Fights are at times WTF are you doing, others Meh whatever, and others just vengeance, but none really effect the outcome of the game.

          • unkind

            That was so eloquent. Mike millbury is such a tool always looking for a “response” . What is mike millbury’s background as far as sports or hockey is concerned? Every time i see him on nbcsn im like what the fuck does this guy know.

          • Z-man19

            Better sit down this could take some time

          • unkind

            im sitting down and i got beer.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            In short
            Mike Milbury is a Fucking Idiot, and if he says it about Hockey, just assume he is wrong because he probably is.

          • unkind

            yeah i could tell that much.

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            Was Mike Milbury the Matt Millen of the NHL or was Matt Millen the Mike Milbury of the NFL? (Eerie initials coincidence going on there, too!)

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Hmmmm not sure.
            But even Jim Hendry did not Fuck up the Cubs as bad as Milbury fucked up the Islanders, they just recently got out from under his pain for the most part.

          • unkind

            And why does he a national tv broadcasting job?!?

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            Has anyone seen them in the same room together. Are we sure they’re not the same person?

          • Joe Banks

            Chicken? or Egg?

          • CozBullsFan

            Techincally, egg came first.

          • bizarrohairhelmet

            That’s true. So much for that cliche.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            There is a VERY GOOD reason neither him nor Pierre McGuire are EVER considered for Coaching/GM spots, at least in public!

          • Z-man19

            They’d have better odds if they wouldn’t speak, at all

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            I think many millions of hockey fans would rejoice for days if this happened.

          • Z-man19

            Mass Thorntoning

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            Unfortunately, I think Cip’s arm might fall off as the pivot man. He would be busy indeed.

          • bizarrohairhelmet

            What’s wrong with McGuire’s 23-37-7 record as head coach of the Whalers?

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Other than it sucks, everything else to do with it as well!

          • Joe Banks

            Watch your blood pressure…

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            He was the GM that totally destroyed the New York Islanders.
            Signed fuckstick Alexi Yashin, then bought him out
            traded away Roberto Luongo (seriously he did)
            Used his #1 pick to draft Depietro
            That is JUST starters

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            He also traded away
            Zdeno Chara for Crackers
            Olli Jokinen
            Tommy Salo
            Bryan McCabe
            He drafted Dipeitro in front of Dany Heatley and Marian Gaborik.
            Let Zigmund Palffy walk
            Traded FOR Alexi Yashin for get this, SECOND OVERALL Draft Pick which became Jason Spezza.

          • unkind

            LOL wow.

          • Joe Banks

            It’s not healthy – stop it right there…

          • unkind

            Answered my own question with wikipedia this explains it all “in his first three full years with the Bruins, his heavily aggressive
            style of play was a perfect fit for the overachieving team coached by Don Cherry and featuring similar tough players such as Terry O’Reilly, John Wensink and Stan Jonathan. Milbury helped his team reach consecutive Stanley Cup Finals in 1977 and 1978, with Boston losing both times to the Montreal Canadiens in four and six games respectively.”

    • lizmcneill

      And what team had the highest o/dzone ratio? That would be your Chicago Blackhawks.

  • CozBullsFan

    Hi TCI friends. I’m bored. I want hockey.

    • Z-man19

      Just watched a replay of the April 6 game against the Blues, felt good

      • CozBullsFan

        I can’t really watch anything at the moment. TV is occupied. My computer is currently transferring about 1 TB of data that makes it in accessible until it’s finished. So basically, I have you guys to keep me entertained.

        • Z-man19

          TMFF is providing fun Milbury facts below and Mullet is dying to dance, just a hunch

          • unkind

            lol yeah which are great

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            But only with you, Z.

            Well, you or Monica Bellucci.

          • Z-man19

            Take Bellucci, I’ll understand

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            I’ll miss your musk.

          • Z-man19

            Sweet talker

          • CozBullsFan

            Milbury facts? That’s will provide many laughs to pass the time.

          • unkind

            More like millbury fuck ups. Which i guess you can consider facts.

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            There are no other kinds of Millbury facts.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Listening to Milbury explain why he hates the DOG makes me laugh and sad at the same time! Laugh for the pure stupidity, sad because to too many he is their first exposure to what hockey is! lol

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            If I were a newbie to hockey, I’d think that everyone involved in hockey was either a meathead (take your pick… Millbury, JR, Jones, Cherry), a drunk (thanks Foley!), an annoying sycophant (take a guess), or just plain dull (all aboard the Konroyd train!!). There’s a reason that even Edzo’s stale patter (keep your sticks on the ice youngsters!!) makes him seem like a genius in comparison. The state of hockey media is sad. That is until you consider Jen Lada.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            In media, I get you need to speak to the lowest common denominator, which is the casual fan. Networks KNOW fans like us could give two shits what the Fuck their talking heads say, we will make our own conclusions and thoughts (or group thought).
            .
            But given that, even at the basic level, it is sad in some what is being presented “as Hockey”. Edzo is annoying at times, but he does try to teach the game, others as well. It is the JR’s and MM’s and PM’s that I think at times do a disservice, but drumming up expectations of what “should” happen but will not because the sport is not like how they present it.

          • Joe Banks

            A few years ago, when NBC’s lead-in for Sunday Hockey was Lou Manfredini, I realized they regard Hockey on the same level as Roller Derby…

          • unkind

            Im new to hockey. Basically as DDN came to town . I was born in 86 . And i can say edzo does seem like a genius from all of them.

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            You couldn’t have picked a better sport to follow my friend.

          • unkind

            I was never a sports fan untill. 08-09 . I remember when i became a hockey fan. I was at a buddy house who had been a hawks fan and his girlfriend at the time was a scum fan. They played an awesome game and went to shootout and we won. Ive been hooked ever since. I really should rewatch that game sometime.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Baseball will always have a spot for me. I played it for 17 years and know the game very well. I am the type of fan who tries to guess the fielders positioning and pitch type, and if the batter is looking inside or away, pitch to pitch.
            .
            I came to Hockey late, but it is an equal in my sports world.

          • VanDorp’sMullet

            I like American football (played in jr. high and high school) and baseball, too. But hockey is just so awesome. Nothing. Nothing like the playoffs in hockey.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Nope. Not at all.
            Baseball, when it is YOUR team has different type of thrill, it is a hanging/dreading/get this hit/out type of suspension, vice the constant heart failure or orgasm of Hockey

          • Joe Banks

            I can think of two reasons to consider Jen Lada, but a million reasons to consider Tracey Myers

      Hey Coz as do I.. by the by your island is incredible and I didn’t want to leave

      • CozBullsFan

        Hey! Great to hear! What did you end up doing while you were here?

        • CR64

          A zip line and climbing wall course… it was cool and had an awesome view

          • CozBullsFan

            Fly High Adventures? A couple of my friends work there. It’s definitely a great view since it’s so far south. You get to see the beautiful turquoise water! Did you do anything else? Or was it just a tour to one place?

          • CR64

            No I think it was MAD or something right on the beach on a resort, it was sponsored by the cruise line, and I only had 2 extra hours so I went to Three Amigo’s and had a few beers and a damn good burrito.

          • CozBullsFan

            Ahh! Man! Three Amigo’s is a crazy time. They won’t let you leave unless you’re drunk. Did you have the guy below as your sever?

          • CR64

            Memory is quite hazy due to 2-1′s at the resort and AYC drink on the ship but he looks familiar

          • CozBullsFan

            He’s one of my good friends here. Name is Gerson. Funny and he has a great attitude in life. I can’t name a person that doesn’t like him. If he served you, I’m not surprised you can’t remember. He’s good at his job. Haha!

          • CR64

            True that, it was my brothers 22nd as well, spending it there and a tequila distillery was a long ass day for his poor ass

          • CozBullsFan

            Tequila tour? Yeah, that will wreck you pretty quickly. Especially if you end your day at Three Amigos.

          • CR64

            That’s the funny thing they started there and hit the entire strip and a tequila tour… kid ended up passing out under his bed

          • unkind

            UNDER?! SO CLOSE!

          • CR64

            I gotta hand it to him he had a bench in his shower on the ship and I had money he was gonna pass out there

          • CozBullsFan

            The bench would have been ideal. Especially for cleaning purposes after puking.

          • CR64

            That was my thought I tried to steer him that way… to his credit he did properly rally it was crazy

          • CozBullsFan

            A quick downing of water and a rest period will do you wonders. Tequila is best in moderation. I always drink water when I’m drinking it with friends. In fact, most Mexicans mix alcohol with some form of water when partying. Mineral water is a big one.

          • CR64

            I feel ya I probably drank 40 Johnnie Black and sodas though out the cruise and never got a hangover

          • CozBullsFan

            Yup. It was a revelation to me when I moved here. The usual drink with my friends is whiskey and water.

          • unkind

            Vodka and tonic water count?

          • birdhead

            I am not Mexican obviously but we had a health class in high school that was basically “how to drink without getting arrested or hungover 101″ and water was heavily emphasised.

          • Joe Banks

            Keeps your brain from sagging

          • CozBullsFan

            Water has always been looked down upon in the US during drinking situations. I laugh at that now. I can have a great long night instead of making a fool of myself and passing out.

          • birdhead

            Here too. We must have had some kind of rebel health teacher but I’ve reached my mid-20s without ever really wanting to die the morning after a big outing, so I’m grateful.

          • unkind

            Im late 20′s and i have felt like dieing ALOT! lol took me a very long time to drink water while drinking.

          • unkind

            Very true again… A water before you start drinking a couple inbetween and one before bed.

          • Joe Banks

            Exactly

          • dirkgrahamcrackers

            huh? showder bench? he got married in there?

          • CozBullsFan

            Tequila has a strange power of causing people to fall asleep anywhere except their bed. Like my brother who had the good fortune of sharing a bottle with my friends when he was on vacation. Woke up to go to the bathroom. Saw the light was on. Opened the door. Door hit something solid. Pushed it open a bit. Passed out on the floor in boxers. Woke him up and asked what he was doing. Said the cool floor felt great. That’s tequila for you.

          • unkind

            Thats very true LOL! I dont drink tequila. Vodka or whiskey for me

          • CozBullsFan

            Tequila can be your worst enemy. It’s a great party shot. Thing about it is, if you’re not careful, it can hit you like a brick wall. Especially if you start taking shots after you’ve been drinking for a while. Tequila is a sipping alcohol. That fact is lost on a majority of people because of it’s status in popular culture.

          • unkind

            Yeah which is totally true.. and dont get me wrong. When i drink hard liquor its usually to get a buzz. So i guess the only tequila ive ever had is basically a shot or margarita. Ive had good scotch but never tekillya

          • CozBullsFan

            You should try to find a good tequila. The good stuff is similar to good vodka and scotch. No burn. Great flavor as it goes down with a little bit of warmth.

            The last shot of liquor I have had was Tequila in Scotland in August 2000. Not a good night. That was THE night where I said, “I am not doing that again” and actually never did.

          • CozBullsFan

            For me, it was vodka. Shots came round after round. Can’t stand the smell of it to this day.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Tequila still turns my stomach at its smell and reminds me of that night to this day

            I had a similar event with old No. 7…

          • unkind

            I use to be like that. Now .. well now its totally diffrent. SKOL vodka at 15-16 would do that for you .

          • CozBullsFan

            Anything at 15-16 will do that to you. It all depends on what you can get your hands on. lol

            I think you’re the only person who’s ever said “I’m never drinking again” and actually stuck to it. I’ve said it at least 5 times.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            I drink beer and on occasion wine and sparkling wines, but not like I did, and very very rarely to anything close to being drunk anymore.

          • unkind

            good for you. edit : who drinks tequila in Scotland btw seems like more of a whiskey country lol

    • unkind

      Yeah buddy. You watching any of tomorrows games? If so which series do you think will be the best ?

      • CozBullsFan

        Tough to pick one. I think all three will be great series. Dallas and Lumbus have what it takes to make it a real battle. Lumbus especially. I think TB has the easiest matchup. I’ll probably tune into the Pittsburgh/Columbus game, then Dallas.

        • unkind

          My thoughts are TB / HABS game will be most exciting probably because i don’t watch either of them play much. I’m hoping for a Columbus upset aka fleury meltdown. I think the ducks will win but im hoping for a dallas upset as well.

          • CozBullsFan

            The TB/Habs series depends on how much D the Habs want to play. I think Lumbus has the biggest chance of an upset. They’ve been playing very well. So has Dallas. Not sure if it’s enough to be the Ducks though.

        Must have missed that. What did he say to get banned?

        • YoAdrienne

          General dickishness. See the Preds wrap-up posting. You’ll have to scroll down quite a bit to watch the train-wreck.

            Possibly.

            let’s just say that after he made one too many references to a regular commenter here about “chasing medals,” he may have finally jumped the shark. Unforgivable IMHO.

      • CitizenKaner

        the TOS should be able to know if it’s the same guy every time right? If it is the same person every time, why not ban IP ban him/her?

        • CR64

          Even if they try IP masks

        • CozBullsFan

          His IP has changed over the course of this ordeal. IP banning someone only delays it. There are multiple ways to get around the IP ban. The fact that he is so bad at it, should make it obvious. Lets say you are the troll, and your IP is xxx.xxx.xx.111. It’s not difficult to change it to xxx.xxx.xx.112. Although, it isn’t that hard to see that it’s the same person. The chance of having two people using a message system with such close IPs is low, but not impossible. Using someone else’s internet to get your jollies is easy.

          • Arctic Ice

            Get your jollies away from my internet Coz.

          • CozBullsFan

            Jokes on you. All your internetz are belong to me.

      • CozBullsFan

        From my convos with AHN after that last troll banning, it seems he has enough technical knowledge to change his IP before his next incursion into TCI. The one sign he isn’t as good as he thinks he is, is his IP changing by one digit. He clearly thinks he is smart enough to get away with it, but in reality, he isn’t. My intuition is that it is the same person. I would need to inspect the IP logs to confirm it though.

        • 10thMountainFire

          Based on how he/she entered this past time, mimicking the same post upon entering that Superman_Damned did upon leaving, it’s obvious to me that it’s the same person.

          • http://www.our-founding.com/ Toews makes funny faces

            Not only that, but just “Honey” or “Sweetie” to the end of his last 2-3 days post and it is a dead ringer for SD and what banned that version.
