Name me a player who has been better than that and don't forget I'm not focusing on just the last game (so don't say Smyth or Staios or Reasoner... etc).
Hemsky maybe. Salo maybe. But that's about it in my opinion.
Well I hardly think "everybody sucked" is exactly a detailed assessment, but fair enough.
I'd say that Smyth, Hemsky, Salo, Staios and even Bergeron have played better in the first few than Raffi. Sure he's had 2 very good games, but he hasn't been the game-breaker in either, and I really think people are looking for something good, rather than simply analyzing contributions when it comes to him so far.
Not saying he hasn't been good, but I certainly don't see him as the reason this team has 3 home wins.
Marty Reasoner should be getting alot more attention than he is.
