Au contraire, both his coach and GM made their livings off of playing mistake free games, doing the right, simple thing. It may work to his disadvantage with the fans, but I don't think he'll lose a spot being unnoticed because he always makes the simple play. They don't expect everybody to be Gretzky (or even Hemsky)-like creative players, in fact, in today's NHL you only have room for so many of those. Unless you're the Avalanche, with a Denver-sized budget.

I thought Stoll played ok, not great but not badly either, particularly considering he'd been cold since training camp.

Hemsky4pm is correct, I think - the first fight got them going, the second fight was enh, the third fight seemed to cause everybody to lose whatever rhythm they had - I wonder if Sutter was counting on that.
