Dumont, Arnott and Sullivan, at this point, are committing theft.
They're collecting paychecks while contributing zero on the ice. Sullivan and Dumont played possibly their worst games as Predators tonight, time and time again killing offensive chances by looking for passes that weren't there, coughing the puck up because they're afraid to get hit, or gliding through the offensive zone because moving their legs makes them tired. Meanwhile, they continue to go without being held accountable by Trotz(at least publically, and at this point, who can say they don't have it coming?). Instead, they suck up icetime from guys that are not only contributing offensively, but actually TRYING...Jones and Hornqvist, in particular.
After three of their goals against, the shift immediatly after, Belak was put out on the ice. Looking for a fight, but finding no partner? One can only hope that was the explanation.
WFOME...I have to disagree about Sulzer. He might not have had a glaring mistake tonight, but he looks like a deer in the headlights every time out. Franson will cause some chances against, but at least he's bringing something to the table with his offensive game.
First sellout of the season. Way to leave a good impression with a lazy effort from most of the top six and at least 4 of our 6 defenseman. Probably the most frustrating game to watch of the season, and doesn't instill a lot of confidence going into Chicago for the second half of the back to back tomorrow night.
Can we call up Gabriel Bourque?
