Off-Day Open Thread

So much for carrying momentum into game 3.  By the time Wednesday rolls around, Saturday will be ancient history.

With all these off-days, it makes me wonder why we can’t have a 7-game series in the first round…  It doesn’t appear to be due to a lack of time.

Looks like we get a Koharski of the Jamie variety on Wednesday, along with Graham Skilliter.  I know a lot of you don’t care much for Koharski, but I’ll take any Koharski over Shaun Davis any day of the week.

Here’s an open thread for you to discuss whatever you want heading into game 3….but here are some topic suggestions…

– Give us some line combinations you’d like to see. Are any lines from the stretch run untouchable?

– Now that the NHL talent is back for both teams, do you expect another defensive grudge match or some higher scoring games?

– If they go with six defensemen, who do you scratch?  And if Fordo is your answer, how much will they miss his leadership during the game?

– Ever been to Austin?

– Who is going to Goolsby’s on Wednesday for the viewing party?

  1. Assuming that Winchester and Liambas are unavailable maybe something like this:
    Beck/Hamill/Mueller
    Bang/Watson/Puustinen
    Henderson/VanGuilder/Budish
    Rask/Reid/Cehlin or 7 defensemen with either Rask or Cehlin sitting.
    I would think with the absences of Winchester and/or Liambas that it would be difficult to sit Ford, that is just too much grit missing even though I don’t think this series has gotten really chippy yet. That said it doesn’t take much to get there and I don’t know how Texas plays at home(maybe they are braver at home) of course this is also assuming Beck is healthy enough to play, if he isn’t then I think Valentine would be needed at wing. Lots of choices for the coach he certainly can’t be used to that!

  2. Complaining about the refs in advance? Beware the Wrath of Yonkfan!
    Six D-men with Valentine on a wing. Scratch Ford and Cehlin (he is too small).
    Never been to Austin. Closest was the Alamo in downtown San Antonio.
