Postby Troy McClure » Thu Dec 14, 2017 12:16 pm

Honka plays today.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Honka has looked pretty good on defense. He actually covers people in the D zone, rather than just standing around waiting for something to happen, which quite a lot of other defenders do.

Every so often, though, he’ll badly telegraph an outlet pass that gets picked off and leaves the rest of the team flat footed and scrambling to get back on defense. It happened pretty regularly in his first few games, but it’s gradually becoming less frequent.

He’s more responsible on D than Klingberg was in his first season. Klingberg (finally) plays good D now so maybe Honka will turn out fine too.

He's going to be playing by himself.

Did someone in here just say that Klingberg plays good D now?

Also, there is no *fargin'* way that Lehtonen wins three in a row ... right?
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.

Apparently, Roseanne Barr is a Devils fan (10:24 of the 1st period)

Yeah, Lehtonen definitely didn't help much. Rebound, rebound, rebound. But the Stars certainly had their chances. Too many penalties, and not much was going their way. I did think they kept up fairly well with the Devilles, which I was worried about. We deserved at least one point in that mess, but oh well. I'm a Brian Boyle fan, so it was prolly my fault.

This is exactly the point I made a few days ago. As soon as any pressure is on Lehtonen to consistently do what he had been doing, he folds.

He seemed like a *goddess* after getting so upset at Kilngberg, who is probably half his weight, upending him.

Kari Rebound Control is the name of my new shitmetal band. You've probably never heard of them.
