i love how this board is so divided on JJ. Its funny how some people throw him under the bus. If you watched last nights game, it really wasn't his fault. Greene didn't box out his man.
JJ has been very consistent this season. Without his 3 game winning goals, this team could be under 500.
He has a good contract and I agree, he still makes idiotic decisions but every year he is showing improvements. His +/-'s are sometimes irrelevant.
I personally think he has not yet found his partner.
On the side note, I felt this team was A LOT faster. I agree with some of you that richardson and lewis have been playing TERRIBLE. But tonight it showed that they can bring speed to the top 6. This also solidifies our 3rd Line. I thought our 3rd line did really well. Heck even penner made a few decent passes, but overall, he needs to pickup his game
I really wish they would get rid of stoll in the PP :X. I like stoll but he's been ineffective this year on the PP.
Its good to have MR back in the lineup. You could tell he brings confidence to this team. First time I saw him high fiving everyone before the start of the game. That shows leadership and it shows that he wants to win and wants to be successful in this organization. His attitude is exactly what you want from a leader and I hope our leaders can learn from him.
I agree Brown had a good game and yes I still believe the C should be given to someone else. His forechecking is great and Penner should learn from that.
As always hats off to Mitchell and Scuds. These two guys never get enough credit.
As for DD, i'll give him some credit. He had a decent game. There were a lot of times where I saw DD doing too much (taking the puck down deep) but I realized we were playing against one of the worst defensive team in the league lol.
But lets not get carried away, we barely inched away with a W against one of the worst teams in the NHL. Tonight is the true test.
