He's actually over 51% now.

Really? Kaberle was definitely no worse than Emelin in the defensive zone tonight...

I didn't see one Kaberle giveaway as bad as the Emelin one in the first.

We are way too hard on our defense though. The reason we lose games is usually not our defense - it's usually our horrible wingers and Gomez when he plays.

Oh ********.

He produced last year without the top wingers. Cole also wasn't producing until he started playing with DD.

DD could have like 30-points this year if even half of the plays he set-up were scored on. The kid is getting better and better - and his all around game is getting better too.
