While I agree that his play thus far has been beyond disappointing, I don't think it's time to call him a bust yet. Then again, I don't think I'd even call him a bust after a full season.

Tonight could be a resurgence for the guy. Call me blindly optimistic, but I think he'll catch on sooner or later.

the guy isnt doing anything to make his play any better. he dont hit he dont forecheck he stands still in the defensive zone. he dont carry the puck his passes are sloppy. he cant wait to get off the ice

In the defensive zone he stands around to accept a pass and then gets caught standing still with the puck. He needs to make himself available while on the move. Also just took out abby.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

It really is kind of bizarre how absolutely invisible he is out there.

 

He LITERALLY doesn't make anything positive happen.

 

Skate fast/hard? No.

 

Pass well? No.

 

Shoot (at all)? No.

 

Watching him play, I cannot believe this guy has put up even 20 points in a season.

I don't really see why that's funny unless you take joy in the disappointment of others. lol

Well I was one of the very few who were against it. So many talked about how we will finish like 2-4 in the east. And Weiss will be more worth the money the fil and etc etc etc.

He wasn't terrible tonight but then again I don't expect anything from him anymore so any little thing will make me think/hope I'm seeing progress. 

 

I feel bad for the guy. Even just a few simple 2nd assists would help make his stat-line look less pathetic but nothing is going offensively when he's on the ice. The fact he's not looking much better than Cleary or Samuelsson is downright scary.

Ok...so?  Everyone has an opinion.  Still four and a half years left and he isn't going anywhere.

 

You may have been right about the first half-mile but there's still four and a half miles left.

i remember getting sh*t on by alot of people for saying he was overrated when we signed him, i also didnt like the alfredsson signing just because the cap number was 5.5 for a 40 yr old player , i can live with the alfredsson signing cause its 1 year but even if we gave him say 4 million instead we'd have flexibility and be able to call up ahl players

 

ah well


also cause the cap number is going up 7 million i just hope holland doesnt feel like he has to go out just sign any joblo , like i said last summer rather keep the money till the right moment arrives ( a real star is available although it rarely happens now ) or let the kids play and keep money for the future raises (nyquist , tatar etc.. )

I agree I didn't like the Alfie signing either.


I personally still think its in the teams best interest to let DAT and z center their own line so they can match up well against other team top 2 lines. And the money we had and have coming io in free agency should be to put legit wingers around them.


The Alfie Sammy Quincey Bert cleary and if we didn't sign Weiss money would get us two really good wingers for each z and DAT. Then you could plug in your franzen Tatar nywuist Abby etc etc where ever Babcock sees fit. And whoever's left plays with helm(when injured Anderson) on the third line.


But instead we insist on old broken players and guys who don't like to score.

weiss is obviously a good hockey player. you dont score hundreds of points in the nhl by luck. 

 

but he also obviously does not fit in this system on this team. 

 

i dont know if its the system, the coaching, the linemates, or something else. but this is bad. brutal even. 

 

we dont have many options right now, but we have to do something. getting demoted to the 4th line obviously didnt fire him up. 


I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

You're expecting him to be fired up about playing with Cleary and Samuelsson night after night?

he got stuck playing with cleary because he was terrible for 15 games, not because there is a cosmic conspiracy. demoting a player to a lower line with crappy linemates is one of the few things that can be done to try and send a message to a player. i expect him to be fired up about the 25 million dollar contract he signed and i expect him to be fired up to play with great players on a team with a great history. he shouldnt need anymore motivation. but watching him out on the ice it seesm rather apparent he does...

Since the beginning of the '12-'13 season:

  • 43 games played
  • 3 goals
  • 5 assists
  • 47 shots on goal

Whatever happened to him started last year.

 

The most shocking to me is the 47 shots on goal. FOR A TOP 6 PLAYER?!?!?! My god....
