Honestly the thought about playing cleary crossed my mind last night. You know he's itching to play and might be good for a few hits. At this point I'd take him over jurco. I don't even know how jurco is still on the team.
I could see smith or kindl being effective against the hard forechecking. Zids was terrible last night. Idk if it was jitters or what but if he keeps it up id take kindl over him
everyone blames howard for losing the shootouts. how are you going to win shootouts when no one can score a goal. i would think howard would play with more confidence if he knew his team could have his back and score a few goals if god forbid he lets a few in.
i understand you want your players that give you the best chance of winning the game but theyre not getting it done so why not switch it up.
