Z has a fantastic game, makes 1-2 bad plays next game, benched ! Our PP has been pathetic, yet our mist highly skilled player has never been given a chance ??

If it has come to making a line of Carbomb-Nodl-JVR, make a ****ing trade and bring in players Lavy will use properly.
The thing is that Leino has proven that he does much better than he gets more ice time, and told Laviolette so, and thus responded. Not everything is done or solved by benching someone.

I also think Leino looks lazy at times because he isn't as good of a skater. But he knows control of the puck, and he knows where to be.

Anyway, hopefully we'll see a high scoring game tonight. LA is my favourite team out west, although the one upcoming UFA forward we would have a chance to fit under the cap that I'd most prefer for us to get would be Justin Williams, so if they were to fall out of the playoff race... I could live with that...
They're not going to sell.
