watching a game live brings a whole new perspective especially when your team is struggling.
D can't make a clean to pass to the forwards, forwards maybe aren't putting themselves in good positions to receive a pass.
these 2 things though have zero to do with the fact that this team had NO energy at all. no forecheck, no hits, no shots, just plain bad. the game was pathetic and you could just sense it that the leafs were going to tie the game late in the third.
3 on 3 is great to watch however.
and i got a s*** ton of likes on my team russia datsyuk jersey.
I still can't believe the huge disappearance of Nyquist. With what he did last year down the stretch was just amazing, would have loved 25% of that production.
nyquist is too small. he's the guy i would trade and he has plenty of value, especially in a more elaborate package.
i'd do a huge splash with the leafs. phaneuf/jvr for nyquist, smith, weiss and a pick. i'm giving the pick because while jvr and nyquist score about the same currently, jvr is big and can hit the dirty spots. by them taking weiss we'll take all of phaneuf's cap hit.
sort of reminds me of the shanahan deal. that leaves us searching for a second line centre still. sheahan isn't offensive enough yet to take on that role. i'd have him as the 3rd line centre instead. if sheahan is the 2nd line centre then this...
