Sums up my opinion but it nevertheless sucks. It hink Eaves is one of the players you need in a salarycap era with a very good value of effort per dollar. Waiving such a guy speaks volumes about the Wings situation at the moment.
Well as Mickey just said, it was a perfectly executed three on two. When a guy is driving hard to the net like that you've got to take him. If he'd have been floating a bit or hanging back then you can try and tie up two guys with positioning. But when he's coming hard like that you've got to slow him up, which Kindl did, and Wheeler made a hell of a pass to set up a hell of a shot for the third guy.
But my sole point to begin with was that not every goal scored against the wings is the result of a f*ck up by one of our guys. There doesn't always need to be a scapegoat. Sometimes the opposition just executes particularly well. They are professionals after all.
Agreed on that. It's pretty hard to defend a 3 on 2.
And if he'd taken the third guy and Wheeler got the pass through to the guy driving the net, you'd be blaming Kindl for not taking that guy. Good pass, good shot, good play. Nobody to blame on that one.
Just got home from parent teacher conferences. Had two parents stop by but only to ask about our fundraiser delivery on Monday. Lovely way to spend two hours. What's the short recap of the first?
Decent first period, Wings were arguably the better team but no great chances for them. On the other side a post by Seguin during a Dallas PP. Weiss getting better and better with two shots on goal. Otherwise nothing spectacular.
Let's just be happy that this wasn't a playoffgame.
Positive things to draw from this game : I liked Smith today, and DeKeyser was also decent as No.1 D-Man. And the first line is on fire right now. With the exception of the last ten minutes of this game.
