EJ and Varly are 23, guys at 23 are still hugely inconsistent. Look at any other young stud Dman asked to carry the #1 role, see Myers, Doughty, etc. or any other young goaler asked to carry the load, again see guys like Price and Fleury. It's what happens with young players. They're already paying off because we have them in the organization for the future. Kinda like how it's ok that Dutchy struggled really badly at the start of the year or how Radar has had massive cold streaks between his early season and late season hot streaks in every year of his career so far.
Kobascrew has been perfectly fine when he gets to play bottom 6 like he deserves. Just look at the last few games where Porter-McClement-Kobascrew have been our best line.
Hejda's been a disappointment but I wouldn't be shocked to see his play turn around completely once he's got a coach who doesn't befuddle him so much. Hejda's problem is that he's playing completely outside of himself, trying to do things that he's just never been really good at. That's not exactly incoherent with the gripe of players having no clue what Sacco expects from them.
Lindstrom was a bust, but he was a worst case scenario depth signing, so missing there isn't really even close to a fireable offense.
I'm all aboard the replace Sacco now train, but Sherman's done a really good job and actually has this team in a position where the pieces are in place to develop into a SC caliber team a couple years down the line. Add a top line winger, top 4 dman, quality coach and a couple years and we can contend with any team in the league.
Siemens/New guy - EJ
Quincey - Elliott
Gaunce/Wilson/O'Brien - Barrie
