@JMackeyPG
Looks like Ryan Reaves could be a healthy scratch tonight. Last forward on the ice.

11:05 AM - Jan 23, 2018

Thank the fucking hockey gods.

Ryan Reaves is a healthy scratch. 1/23/18

Here's the wall of fail!!

Quote:
Me thinks Sid's taken one too many cross checks from hacks like Brandon Dubinsky.
Me thinks Sid and Geno (maybe through Sully) asked JR for some protection.
Me thinks JR's #1 objective now is to WIN whilst having Sid/Geno/Phil/Letang/Murray/etc.

All the critics miss something else -- Gary Roberts, Mike Rupp, Bill Guerin, Eric Fehr -- all tough guys with some skills.
Protection in the regular season. Grit in the playoffs.

came here to see what u knowledgable folks thought..more I see bout this the more I like..dude is tough bad ass!...watching pens in playoffs I kept wondering where our bad asses were to kick some ass and stop the mauling of sid!! I welcome this cat! dude looks fast too when needed.. I bet he turns into good scorer on pens instead of the laboring st louis offense too.like some here suggested I bet sully sid and gino all exspressed we need a bad hombre to help out at times! should be fun to watch!!

and the bolded is exactly what I thought upon hearing this news. I think he might have more offensive skill than Kunitz at this point of their respective careers.


Quote:
Reaves is going to have his career year this year. Great situation for him, and he's been improving each season.

And now for KING RETARD!!

Quote:
Let’s be honest, the Blues need a guy like Reaves to climb onto the ice, immediately putting the other team on notice for having their ass handed to them. He doesn’t just hit the other guy; he runs them the fuck over. He is feared on the ice, and is the only Blue who can police opposing players out there. If Pittsburgh had Reaves, Sidney Crosby may not have six concussions during his career


Quote:
I'll bet Reaves scores 12-13 goals for us next year, while protecting Sid & Co.



Quote:
As JR said, when you go out and get the guy who is the best at what he does, you have to pay for it. Reaves is the best at what he does, and it's something we need - toughness and grit and striking fear in the opponent.



Quote:
very true -- people comparing Reaves to Sestito make me laugh -- Reaves is 10000X more of a hockey player/skater than Sestito


Quote:
dumbasses like Hacksaw are playing checkers while JR is playing chess

That's why fucking idiots like him don't get the trade


Quote:
I posted this already, but here's a reminder of what Reaves can do -- Not many "enforcers" can skate and score like this:

good article -- Pretty much the consensus view of (most) on the board here (except for at least one numbskull)

Mea culpa. He doesn’t fit here at all and he’s late to shoot on every opportunity. I swear he looked better than this on tape. If he were good enough to finish, he could play on a better line but he’s not.

Newsflash: better C's make mediocre Wingers look good

Reaves hasn't had anything resembling a decent C here. Reaves would be fine with Cullen. I'd argue Reaves is a better hockey player than Kuhn. A tad slower, yea...

We've had trash at the 4C the entire year....Reaves formed a solid 4th line for STL because he had a good pivot

I liked the idea of it at the time, the trade seemed a bit much (though Sundqvist hasn't exactly set the world on fire, either).

Reaves has been a little more active than Sestito. I'll probably give him that.

It's about role. I think both Kuhn and Reaves would see an uptick in play with a Cullen-type center. Rightfully, Kuhnackl is favored because he can kill penalties. No surprise, Sullivan doesn't value Subway Sandwiches of the Game and great interviews over special teams play.
