Sather's system calls for one of 2 things (not sure which). Either Dale was supposed to move up to pick up the man that Jaime released and Kasper was supposed to move and pick up Berglund or Dale should have never moved up. Neither you nor I know what Sather's "system" calls for.
"And as for the goal he "saved", how about it was a scenario he created by not being able to stick with his man going to the net again causing him to come in full force at the last second in an attempt to catch Rupp causing him to barrell over Dunny hard and akwardly."
Revisionist history. That WOULD be the way that YOU choose to see it as a Dale basher. I looked at it the other way as a Dale supporter.
"But yeah, it's Mironov and Malakhov that need replacing"
Bash Dale all you want, but that does not take the light off the fact that Bobo has had a HORRIBLE camp and him and Vlad looked simply awful the other night. Trupmet that Dale needs to be removed all you want, but please do not turn a blind eye to the fact that the M&M boys have been a horror show.
It's Lundy's fault, or it could be Darius' fault or it could be Slats fault, ANYBODY but the guy who was 100% responsible for the guy that really is responsible for the fact that a man he was body to body with and released was standing infront of the net ALONE on his side of the ice.
When is it ever the defenseman's responsibility to take the guy in the faceoff circle when there is a guy going straight to the net on that guys side of the ice?What system would that be???
And Darius had a guy going to the net on HIS side of the ice.He accordinly moved over to HIS side and picked up that guy as he should.
As for the play where he barrelled over Dunny, did he not get beat to the front of the net by Rupp causing him to come barrelling in like an out of control bull in an attempt to recover, possibly causing injury to his own #1 goalie in a preseason game???
As I said, I have it all on tape and would gladly send it to ANYBODY who wants to dispute this is exactly how it went down.
