  • For $750k this Huskin guy is pretty damn solid looking so far. Steady eddie on the back end.

You gotta be the QB to win the MVP baby! You can't be the punter.

my first impressions of kent huskins: i love him so far, real stay at home defensemen. he's playing it real safe, and at this time, that's what we need. we won't even let someone be the last man back, he'll rotate back around them if they try breaking out. i like him.

Looks like he's playing really simple and not above his abilities, which I really like. It's needed on this defensive roster. 

 

On the negative side he looks very slow out there, but as long as he actually does stay at home for the most part he should do the job.

no he looks absolutely slow, it seems like he doesn't have his legs on him right now but what can we expect. he sounded absolutely winded there on the interview.

everyone needs to realize, we didn't develop smith into this defensive defensemen who plays outstanding defense. we developed him into a poised puck moving defensemen. he has outstanding offensive capabilities but his defensive play has always been sloppy.

Smith just looks nervous. Keeps falling over. 

 

Also him and Quincey simply don't work as a pairing. 

 

Plenty of offensive d-men look awful defensively when they first enter the NHL so I wouldn't exactly give up hope on him.

Smith and Quincey playing together doesn't help either of them look better

At least he is paired with Quitsey.  He should learn a lot. :scared:

Sheeesh ppl Smith hasn't even played a full year in the NHL and some of you are already so critical of him.  Give him a break.  I'm going to reserve judgement until after one full year.

We need to start crashing the net.  Stop all this perimeter shooting.  We have one Logo Hunter and he's hurt.

The guy most in need of finding the fountain of youth is Cleary. he looks really really slow.......... On the plus side Emmerton has looked good while out there.
