Babs deserves a ton of blame for the 2-0 deficit. The kid line didn't play the first six minutes and he didn't realize they were the only line worth a damn until the third. He was riding Glendening and Bertuzzi early in the game -- there's no good reason for that.
Legwand and Alfie could kindly start playing hockey soon too. What a solid veteran presence they provide when the kids are the only reason this team has any chance to win games.
That's a tough one to swallow. Quality officiating at the end. Call Smith for a hook and overlook one on Tatar. Not to mention, apparently not understanding what constitutes offside.
Another game where it was all the kid line. Mule scored, but he was awful besides that. Legwand and Alfie were even worse. The kids are competing and producing while the veterans are blowing the team's playoff hopes.
Bad time for a losing streak. Saturday is a must-win in regulation.
Does anyone else hate having Andersson on the wing as much as I do? Slow and doesn't score...awesome. He's good defensively and at faceoffs, I get it, but if he's not going to play center (where those things matter) then why bother?
I mostly hate having him on the team at all, but I do agree with you. Just don't see how Andersson has any long-term spot in the organization when guys are healthy. He's about the eighth best center and only slightly better than Emmerton.
