I thought he was awesome when he was playing together with the eurotwins. I also feel that he need to be playing on the left dot on the powerplay to utilize his one timer. Powerplay needs to have way more looks as it's getting stagnant
Why does anyone expect Alfie to be better? he played what 65 games this year and scored 17 goals. Finished the year looking really slow, wild shot-happens when your legs are gone, and a sore back. Now he will be a year older and you expect better? I have no doubt that Mantha right now could score 17+ goals on the RW's next year. It is the other parts of the game that he needs to develop, not his shooting/goal scoring.
Because maybe the fact that alfy was playing with nobody all year. Early in the year for the brief moment when he was playing with pavel and z he was great and it wasn't just because of pav and z (see the first Colorado game in Colorado this year). I want alfy back and I either want him riding shotgun with pav and z or down on the 4th with helm and Abby. That's just my opinion but I really still do believe the guy can contribute a lot for us
I think we should go for Boyle. He bridges the cap for the kids to come up and he would be huge for puck movement and the pp. He's also a vet that you know will be highly motivated to win a cup before retiring.
Next season you run....
Big E- marchenko/ouellette
Need to score more goals, get Legwand in an offensive role and hope he can spark something with pav and nyquist. Hopefully the mule can't take advantage of easier matchup and the kid line needs to start being the kid line that we love to watch
