If it has come to making a line of Carbomb-Nodl-JVR, make a ****ing trade and bring in players Lavy will use properly.
Actually I think during that Washington game (the one Mez won in OT) Leino made a bad turnover that led to the first Washington goal. Then in another game (I think the Ottawa game) when we were on the Peco, we were generating a couple of chances but Leino kept doing spin moves right at the blue line and both times the Senators were able to pressure him and clear the puck; so Lavy demoted Leino to the 4th line for a couple of shifts. I'm not a huge fan of Z; but if he was the one making those mistakes instead of Leino he probably would've been a healthy scratch for six games
