This is Holland's fault. He built a team that made us unable to have the best players play. If we missed the playoffs he should be fired but we won't. The problem will be solved soon enough but Holland's godlike status as been tarnished in my eyes. Some absolutely awful signings and handcuffing the team will do that.
Could work Kronwall with Smith. Let him simplify play in his own end and jump into the play here and there. We need to get him going offensively. Our goals scored per game is low because our Defense is contributing nothing offensively compared to where we were just a couple years ago. Need them to create offense and if smith can start to do that he can be a crucial part of this team
Kronwall looks so much more mature and composed this year compared to last Alfredsson penalty had to be called. The 5 on 3 were both weak calls that Boston was getting away with all game. Not to mention the timing of the power plays a little suspicious
