I have no idea why Deschenes is on this team, he's way too slow, can't keep up. He is getting icetime too, which puzzles me. I'm just watching from online, maybe it's different in person. And a positive was that Bishop was the best player on the ice including both teams. Hopefully Ritcey and co will figure it out tomorrow...
I am not blaming the coaches or players but this was a very disappointing result. Team Atlantic needs to do some serious work on development and recruiting/selecting best people available.
And I've said this before on this board that Hockey NB may be worst of all provinces. For a population of 800,000 PEI turns out more players than them with a population of 130,000.
Is Allan Andrews/hockey pei that much better?
