Ericsson was actually not that bad. He was very good on the PK and at times outplayed Q and Stuart 5-on-5.
Stuart is a veteran and while I agree that he was terrible (and I really didn't expect anything better from him), he is still a highly paid, experienced d-man so there is no chance he gets benched.
Holland traded our first round pick for Quincey. And as much as some people here rag on him, he's still a better option than Smith right now. To me the problem was with our stale offence. Smith will hopefully get his chance next season. Stuart will be gone for sure.
I try to like Ericsson, I really do, but until he starts to mash people into the boards and clear the crease he will always be on my s*** list. No excuse for a guy that size to be so soft. Aki Berg 2.0
Stuart is gone, who gives a damn if he gets benched and gets his feelings hurt. He was a good warrior for us but his best days have passed.
I like Q, but he needs to play with a defensive D guy who can cover up for his bad pinches and turnovers.
Oh well, Smith should be full time in the top 4 next year...
