We had Barker, Peckham and Omark just waiting for the coach's call.
Instead, the rotten three were benched, Dubnyk played a lot more, and we skunked out a few more essentially meaningless wins with a healthier lineup than years past. With two #1s playing some marvelous hockey. With Eberle rising to role of franchise player.
What does this mean? It means that the rest of the lineup has gotten MUCH WORSE. At a time when Tambellini should be finding building blocks for moving forward, he has acquired refuse from several sources, and left more holes in his lineup than there existed before he arrived.
This is the work of a shatty GM. After Edmonton, his NHL career is over.
Pittsburgh had Whitney (5), Fleury (1), and the mighty Crosby (1), the greatest player of his generation who went on to get 102 pts in his rookie year and his team still finished low enough to draft Staal.
What does this mean? Nothing. It's not over yet.
