Hey teams with recently injured star forwards, can I interest you in one Chris Kreider for three 1st's and an A prospect?

Seriously though, they dropping like flies out there.
Fingers crossed the rangers keep him and someone panic buys AA!

I just think Holtby has dealt with the sloppy play far more than Samsonov for a lot of the season. Not that he has himself played well or anything close to it, either. But everyone thinking just starting Samsonov was a cure for all ills should know by now that when the defense wants to play like it has the last couple games...doesn't matter who is in net.
The defense has been pretty poor recently; Samsonov can mask 80% of the teams problems. With Holtby, every defensive mistake is basically conceding a goal, and that's on top of regular goals that he's just going to randomly let in; he's not going to make a single worthwhile save at this point. Reirdan needs to get some of that Trotz magic back in the defense, the team as it's playing now isn't winning crap no matter who's in goal

Nah, Samsonov can't mask it. Not to that degree when they're giving up that much like they had been the last couple games.

Although Holtby was pretty great tonight. Grubauer was actually pretty good himself but we did enough to come back.

Stamkos, Kucherov, and Cirelli out and they still win. Oh Edmonton, you are such disappointments.

EK65 out for the rest of the season with a broken thumb. Couture injured, Hertl injured, EK65 injured, Kane potentially facing suspension...
