This was an embarrassing game, no matter how one is looking at it the only bright spot Smith showing huge balls against Neil.
- diving: seriously stop this crap this isn't soccer nor basketball show some class
- pushed around: the best player on this team BY FAR is getting ellbowed and no one willing to stand up for him? WTF
- losing against a joke of an expansion team, which can't even fill their own building without TorontoMapleLeafs fans *LOL*
- PP sucked as always since St. Nick retired...
Enough with the soft euro style, create a fourth line from hell like the TorontoMapleLeafs have done, after getting pushed around now they are one - if not - the toughest team in the NHL, that's how to build a fourth line Kenny.
I like what Bertuzzi brings, but seriously other enforcers are not afraid to fight him...guys like Scott, McGrattan, McIntyre, McLaren, Orr or Bordelau are striking FEAR into the opponent. Heck call Russia and ask for Trevor Gillies I will be incredible pissed off, if they view the next meeting against Ottawa as a normal game, it's a statement game so they better make one.
While Howard isn't to blame for the situation, he isn't helping either so what about giving the monster some games? He has played pretty well and even outplayed an elite goaltender in Tuka Raask some weeks ago.
