I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed, but Ian White has been complete garbage this year.  He's decent on the PP, but Smith can take his spot when he gets back.  The biggest complaint I have about White is that he can't make the first pass to save his life.  Every time he gets the puck in the defensive zone he blindly throws it up the boards and 90% of the time it gets stopped at the blue line by the other team.  It's about time to put Huskins back in the line up and put White in the press box with tapes to watch illustrating how you make a break out pass.

Since I'm sure this is in response to the penalty he took, that was NOT a penalty. That was a ref tripping a STL player and White was closeby. 

 

It doesn't have to be a penalty in the NHL today, it just has to look like one

It's not in response to the penalty at all.  It's every time he gets the puck he just gives it back to the other team.  I never even said anything about the penalties he takes.  Watch him closely, he can't make the first pass and he often ices the puck.  It's hard to watch him right now.

There's a reason several teams have passed on him like a joint.  

 

He won't sit, because we have too many injuries, not enough defensemen in the minors, and Quincey should also be sat.  Not enough bodies at the end of the day.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Don't worry I'm watching. I'm noticing Kindl tonight in a bad way. PP tying goal Kindl just lost his man randomly. Breakaway he let his man behind him. I've seen people calling him our best defender along with E. Not tonight. Not in the least.

Where's Huskins?  At least he hits and blocks shots.  Thank god Kindl is actually playing decent.  Our D is not doing good if White can play this bad and not get the Whitney treatment.

Yeah, I'd play Huskins, but they already know what they have with him.  White was our "big" free agent move several offseasons ago (yikes), and Quincey was the trade from last year.  Lashoff is a minor league guy they want to try out.  

 

Huskins is naturally being sat over those players, since he's just some quick fix we signed to have more bodies.   And he's older than those players.

But in an interview a number of games back, Babcock said the players play dictates their icetime.  Apparently they all laughed at that message.  I can't wait until this team is healthy and we see less White, Cleary and Quincey.

Let's go ahead and sit White. Play Samuelsson at the point when he comes back.

No kidding. Kronwall, Quincey & Lashoff were just as bad, if not worse than White tonight..

Where is Kent Huskins? Quincey needs to sit. Kronwall has looked mediocre, to be nice. At least Kindl is playing solid.

White's been fine. Q has to go, I've defended the guy for a while now but he's just a trainwreck.

Problem with Q (other than he is garbage) is he will never live up to being worth a 1st rounder...it's almost like Holland thought he was outbidding a phantom GM last March when he threw the 1st rounder at Yzerman...

 

I think White is White....he is playing much like he was last season when Lidstrom whet out. Q and K are hot garbage...

I thought White looked alright this game.  Plays positionally well with Big E.  Quincey looked like butt smear and Kindl just cannot get a shot through to save his life.

Grouping K with Q is an insult to K.  I think Kindl has been pretty decent ..not Norris caliber by any means but fairly solid.  As for Q he is falling into my Dan Cleary category.  Just looks lost..used to be a pretty good passer and had a bit of a physical edge.  Those things are non existent now.

Nevermind sitting White, he has been pretty solid back there for us, but Quincy had another God awful game tonight as did Cleary. Babcock seriously needs to consider sitting those 2. If I was the coach they would have been sitting long ago.
