Just realized that in 8 NHL playoff games, Mrazek now has 3 shutouts. That's a playoff goalie.

In the end, sometimes the sum of the parts is more important than what an individual produces. Mantha scored two goals, but the pp was on fire while he was on it. He made things happen that didn't show up on the scoresheet. Smith does the same.

 

Well that's something the boxscore doesn't show so of course it doesn't matter to some people which is a shame. I don't care about how many points Smith brings or doesn't bring, his job is to prevent the other team from scoring.

I feel like I'm one of the few people around here who don't think we look too bad going forward. And that our "down years" aren't all that down. We will be as good or better next year than we were this year. Even without Datsyuk. Two years from now we will be really good. We've already got our next first and second line centers in the organization. We've got two higher end goal scorers in Nyquist and Tatar. We have quality supplementary power forwards in Abby and Mantha. And we've got a future franchise goalie. Our defense needs work, and even its not as bad as people think. We are in a position now where our old guys are too old, and our young guys aren't quite there yet. What we need is time, for our next generation to mature. That's it. Chasing guys like Backes or Lucid would only put this team in the same spot its already in...just two or three years from now.

All I want from Holland and company is to commit fully to the kids in the off season, and improve the defense if possible without losing anything significant.

WingedWheel, to answer your question, yes you are obviously missing something. Because you are literally the only person upset about having Smith inserted into the lineup. He should have been in the entire series. You keep pointing out that he only has 2 points in his last 17 games or whatever... Who gives a s***? Although, he doesn't produce as much as we'd like him to, he does generate offense, in fact, far better than any of our other defensemen. He also plays with an edge, which is a great attribute in a playoff game. You praise Abdelkader for his aggressive style, but fail to acknowledge the same quality in Smith.

Andersson sucks, he should not be in the lineup. Smith is good, he should be in the lineup. Very simple.

Maybe that's part of why they brought him up? Partially the reasons they've said but also partially as a favor to him?

 

If that's the case then I quit being a fan of this team.
