And I agree on this, that if Sergei was french and quebecer, he would already be in the pressbox and in the fans' doghouse
This lead to my main question:
Is Gui mishandling Gui?
I think the guys from l'antichambre are dumb.
Higgins was suppose to start the season with Koivu/Tanguay. He came back from injury played with Lang until Lats had a couple average games and then Carbs made the switch.
I defended the Lats vs Higgins on Koivu line a lot, because I felt it balanced our top9 in the best way possible, not because Lats was getting unfair treatment. That's just what dumb french journalists say.
What if Kovalev had been injured, and to replace him they made a Kost broz/Plek line. Now that line starts great, Kovalev returns, plays on another line, after 2-3Games, S.Kost stops producing pts, dont you think Kovalev would be brought back up???..Especially if the line Kovalev was now playing with wasn't working either.
Latendresse's PP time got cut because Higgins is better, and on the PP you want your best 8 offensive players + 2 Ds. So, it makes sense.
Now that Higgins is back, they put Lats back on his usual spot and that makes them say Gui is always getting mistreated??..
And again, with the french vs english/europe thing, that will just never die.
S.Kost hasn't been scratched because he's an important part of our top9 and mostly because we're 8-1-1. If we were losing, there would be a good chance that he'd been scratched by now.
These guys are dumb.
