If it had been Renney, he would have been criticized for changing the lines. And I guess memories are selective. No one remembers Avery costing us 2 power plays against carolina? That should be rewarded? Everyone ragged on Girardi because of an errant play with his stick against boston. Avery's penalties were worse IMO, because it was 2 bad plays rather than 1.
But whatever. People will read whatever they want into the line changes.
although averys penalties were ill timed, hes showing enormous heart and passion. the penalties were bad but again, if its not sean avery, are they even called?
hes exactly what this team needs more of minus the weak penalties.
im sorry, girardis play has been weak for over 2 months. nothin new there.
torts just needs to split up the lipstick ladies- rozy and redden. keep them away from the pp and limit their time against other top lines.
as for nazy, he seems to be wearing down. he has no wheels and he may need fewer minutes in this new system.
