It sucks that Legwand went out and went out early. It gets amplified that much more since Legwand was getting close to 20 minutes a night and that's going to be hard to fill.

I have no problems with McGrattan being in the lineup but Trotz has to allow him to do what he does to be effective. We needed a momentum shift last night and that's part of McGrattan's role. Trotz needed to let him go and try to turn the tide of the game. It's not like we weren't taking a ton of bad penalties as it were.

Also, without Klein in the lineup, Toots and Weber are really the only guys who would step up if need be and that's just not enough guys who are willing to go to bat for their teammates.
To be human, my dear boy...
