Man Mara seems like the dman we needed back there. A lot of people were not thrilled with the deal, saying he was slow and such.
He looks like he has decent wheels for the size he is. Right in the first period when he got hit by Torres got up in his face started pushing him all the way to the bench until he did a line change. Thats the stuff we need in our lineup.
Watched Mara close tonight, as it was more of a comfort game being his second game back and adapting possibly to Martin's system again. The guy didn't make a mistake and was solid on checking, moving people out of the front of the net.
I know one thing that needed to be changed, Kesler in front of Price screening. They all tried containing him to the outside instead of in his face. Weber didn't put any effort, let him stand there. Gill was in is face arms all over him pushing him out.
You would think Mara wouldn't make a difference but he is IMO.
Each pairing is complemented.
Hamrlik - Def Wisniewski - Off
Gill - Def Subban - Off
Mara - Def Weber - Off
Each pairing has a RHD and a LHD, which is perfect.
Offense, played reat defensively and chipped in at key times, great team win all together.
PS White, shoud stay in the lineup permanently and Pyatt a scratch. White was going so hard to the net tonight, shoving te canucks dmen right on Luongo. White seemed to always be getting the heat from them after the whistle. Not saying they were intimidated, but he was right in there and they were trying to shove him. Kind of get under the skin abit. Size to back it up and will drop em if needed to. Keeper for sure.
