I think we'll be seeing Ian White next game.

Why is Brendan Smith playing instead of White?

 

Sure hasn't earned it.  

 

At this point I would put White in in a heartbeat.  Can't play any worse than Smith is. Hopefully he can turn it around..just looks so nervous everytime he touches it

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

It is amazing how many times Smith has turned the puck over tonight..completely out of his element. 

 

Yet people will keep defending him saying he's young.  

 

He's played a full season and a playoff series, and some of these mistakes he's making are basic hockey mistakes they teach kids.  

 

He shouldn't get a free pass, especially since a guy just came out of college and all of a sudden started outplaying him.


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

Haha my girlfriend just asked me if Smith forgot what team he is on and he sucks.

 

He's playing with a severe case of nerves.

Smith is the new Ericsson.  Ericsson is actually playing pretty good, as much as I've loathed him in the past.

Do not give up on Smith. He will be good. Trial by fire.

I agree.  We should try to move him while we can. 

 

Especially since Dekeyser looks like the real deal.  

 

And he'll have great value after playing a terrible playoffs, right?

We are a giveaway machine tonight. More passes to Chicago players than to our own players.

 

Somewhat lucky Chicago's not got any real rythm going and it's still 1-1. Need to wake up while this game is still winnable.

I want the kid to be a good player but he's too hit and miss. He's missing big tonight.  They just dump it in his corner every single time.

There's no point in playing White. He's a defensive liability too and has no future here. Smith is struggling badly, but it's a learning experience for him. Let the kids continue to develop in pressure situations.

This is true. Right now we have to win playoff games, not educate young players who make very basic, simple mistakes. Ian White can't be this bad, at least I hope not.


40 for life.
