#2494091 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by Echolalia on 10 March 2014 - 03:55 PM

Smith is an offensive defensman; I think we can all see that in his game. I agree with Kip though, that Babs cares about defense before offense, so Smith needs to learn to take care of things on the defensive side of the puck, and adapt his offensive game without sacrificing scoring opportunities against us. He's getting better every week at this. Last year most of LGW wanted him off the team, earlier this year more folks started believing that he could be solid for us, and now we have a thread dedicated to "the real Brendan Smith" finally showing up. I still believe he has a ways to go, and ultimately see him being the Brian Rafalski that we've been missing in a couple years. Time will tell if he reaches that potential or not, but he's trending in the right direction.

Big save by Jimmy. LGW silent. Goal allowed by Jimmy. LGW up in arms about how jimmy never makes big saves.

Probably in the minority but I think Chara is the most overrated player in the league.  He's big and physical, but I've never been impressed with his defensive ability.

Mickey often talks about how players feel the need to play harder in front of their backup and feel like starter will bail them out.

 

I agree with this.  I don't agree with Jimmy not making any big saves while Gustavsson stands on his head to deliver victories.

Gustavson is like the ultimate goalie troll.  He has horrible mechanics, terrible rebound control, loses sight of the puck regularly, and then has better numbers than most of the league.

 

Mabus should photoshop trollface onto Gus

 

OO OO  OO formal request:  and add "U MAD JIMMY?"

This is hockey, not fifty shades of grey .

 

If Kyle Quincey can score, so can Dabura.
