But I'd still rather trust the veteran that knows how the playoffs works as opposed to a rookie d-man who hangs on to the puck too long in the regular season so who knows how many times he'll cough it up when time shrinks more in the post-season.
Yeah, and unfortunately, that sniper usually attended games against the Blackhawks. It happened in that 7-2 drubbing, and led to a goal, but it also happened in Chicago when Nabokov stood on his head. The second time, Demers wildly swung at the puck and prevented a breakaway. More luck than skill, but at this point, we have little of either on our blueline.
