I say cut the fat and promote guys like Brunner and Nyquist to our top 6. I don't think Franzen is going anywhere let Tatar play on our third line. Much like our defense this year trial by fire it only benefits our young players
I think Quincey has been great. All of our defenseman have stepped up aside from smith.
The pressure is really getting to him he looks so nervous and uncomfortable I don't think it's good for his development to be playing in a top 4 role. I honestly feel bad for him but he's making us lose so I'm starting to resent him
I don't see how this experience is good for smith either. Half his NHL career is all negative and he seems to not have a problem with it cause he hasn't made the slightest adjustment to to improve. Bench his ass and show him how much better you have to be for playoffs next year. And for him to be guaranteed a top 4 spot is making him entitled to the role no matter how he plays. I don't understand how you don't put Kindl up he has been great and has more experience
Sadly, no.Offside (ice hockey)For other uses, see Offside (disambiguation).In ice hockey, a play is offside if a player on the attacking team enters the attacking zone before the puck does, unless the puck is sent or carried there by a defending player.Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk HD
Puck was battled back in I've seen a lot of refs blow that offside
Smith should have been sitting since Game 2 in Anaheim. White is a veteran and will be playing for a contract. There is no chance in hell he can be worse than smith but there is a chance he can be atleast competent and that will go a long way
Smith just seems like a complete tool as well... In interviews and twitter... He sucks under pressure and can barely play hockey. He's had one good game I can possibly recall just a terrible human being
