OB has been HORRIBLE down the stretch and he's purely one dimensional player. If that dimension isn't working then how the hack can he be effect? If you think Ovy will make MAB his b1tch just imagine what he would do to OB, probably make him score on his own net.

This will not be a physical, ground and pound series. It will be a much more fast paced, offensive tilt then grinding hockey. That being said, you need to be able to quickly transition from defense to offence and MAB and Markov give you the best option to do just that. Just look at how they've dominated Washington on the PP this year. If they can work their magic 5 on 5 during a game, all the better.

OB could be a good player for us one day, but as of today he doesn't have the confidence, experience or where with all to be effect. MAB has all of the above and besides his size is an upgrade on OB in every other category as of late including on defence.

A red hot MAB makes so much more sense then a fragile OB.
That makes sense to me too.....
