But do fall back on depth when guys like Green and Semin are mummies on the ice, broken and completely ineffective. Using the number 1 G more when the backup shows signs of cracking.

Certainly GM saw we had powerhorse teams that were competitive and entertaining. More blow outs or blown out, while Dales teams were competitive but via coin flip tight games, not nearly as entertaining - as many pay to see the stars shine. He almost makes himself look dumb not using Ovi to the strengths that warranted the max contract he gave out.

We need a coach half way between Dale and Bruce. I will do it myself dammit.
Are you going to start by benching all of the vetiest of vets on the roster - Vokoun, Hamrlik, Knuble, Halpern and Erskine? Or will you actually bench those deserving? LOL
