Figured Jared Cowen deserves a forum to himself.

Why is he struggling so much? Was it the surgeries? The holdout? Confidence?

Is he a core player in our system? If not, what should be done with him?

Not much you can do with him at this point. I guess you either cut bait immediately via trade, or hope he turns it around.

He doesn't have much value now, though another team may look at him as a Turris-style project.

Assuming we keep him, he'll have to be worked back into the lineup. It says a lot right now that we're missing a LD due to injury, and Cowen is still being scratched.

Prediction: he has seen the last of the press box. For good.

Not if he's been slacking in practice, which might explain the gap in between games. But definitely, he should be playing next game.

Eventually, both boro and gryba will see time in the press box.

If he can't practice, he can't practice man. If he's hurt, he's hurt. I mean ... simple as that. It ain't about that... I mean it's... It's not about that... At all. You know what I'm saying I mean... But it's...it's easy ... to, to talk about... It's easy to sum it up when you're just talking about practice. We're sitting in here, and he's supposed to be the franchise player, and we in here talking about practice. I mean, listen, we're talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about practice. Not a game. Not, not ... Not the game that he goes out there and dies for and plays every game like it's his last. Not the game, but we're talking about practice, man. I mean, how silly is that? ... And we talking about practice. I know he's supposed to be there. I know he's supposed to lead by example... I know that... And he's not.. He's not shoving it aside, you know, like it don't mean anything. He knows it's important, he does. He honestly does... But we're talking about practice man. What are we talking about? Practice? We're talking about practice, man. We're talking about practice. We're talking about practice. We ain't talking about the game. We're talking about practice, man. When you come to the arena, and you see him play, you see him play don't you? You've seen him give everything he's got, right? But we're talking about practice right now. We talking about practice.

Nice one. If only Cowen could be more like 'The Answer'

It happens. We'll likely never be able to make him decent because he's challenged on the ice. We got lucky with Ceci being so good, call it a wash.

Ceci was also a first-rounder that fell a bit because teams ahead of us weren't taking D-men. The really cool part about Ceci is that he didn't even take a full season to become a full-time NHLer. We didn't get lucky with a goo first rounder to make up for a top-10 pick that didn't pan out.

So what does everyone make of the story (Garrioch?) about Arizona making calls about Cowen? We got Turris for Rundblad and a 2nd, what would Cowen+ fetch?

Vermette would be perfect.
