Good news Dekeyser looked like our best defenseman.
Bad news Dekeyser looked like our best defenseman.
Kronwall takes too many dumb penalties, he must have a lot of IQ loss from all his hits. He now leads all defenseman in the league in minor penalites, absolutely unacceptable.
Datsyuk was completely ineffective yet again, enough excuses for him, he needs to simplify his game, he cannot lead our team in turning the puck over, it gives us no chance for our top players to carry the play when Datsyuk always loses the puck.
Nyquist is the only guy on the team creating anything right now, good for him, bad for the rest of the team.
We need to get our offense on track, something needs to happen on Babcock's end. We've been shut out too often this year.
Datsyuk turns the puck over because he doesnt have the support he used to and the opositions best players zero in on him night in and night out.
Gus is creating more because he is on a different line, where he doesnt have to play against the Blues best.
This is not like 2009 when we were so deep up front that we could spread the talent around to force other teams into making decisions when it comes to matching line ups. when we get bert and helm back, and can split up dats and hank, and have a big body playing with each of them to open up space, more scoring chances will be created. along with helm wrecking havoc on the 3rd line.
and a lot of people seem to give teams the wings play no credit what so ever for playing well. its always "wings are playing like s***". when it comes to how the wings play, thyeir opponents have a LOT to do with that.
