In Topic: Hockey 101: Zone exits for wingers

14 August 2014 - 06:42 PM

I don't know if I would be as quick to hop on the wingers about the zone exits.  Even momentary hesitation by the Red D allows the opponents to close the gap on the wingers no matter where they are. They need to get more confident on the puck, get their head up and make a decisive first pass.  Happy hands are the enemy of the breakout!

In Topic: Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

05 August 2014 - 11:55 AM

I'd agree with Raffi.  Sure he declined, but you literally can't buy puck sense like that any more.

 

Flip was definitely underappreciated too.  Sure he needed better finish, but he had great skills through the neutral zone, great O zone entries, fantastic work ethic, and was our best player on the ice a good few nights when Z or D were injured.  Our 2-4 lines don't have what he did now, so we chip in now.

Danny Boy will follow in the path of a long line of RW veterans who have "upper body injuried" and optional shoulder/hip/back surgeried their way into retirement.  I don't see him getting in the way too much this year.
