Just didn't get involved with the rush much --- which I think was a plan, no Sabre D really got offensively involved much.
I thought Myers has certainly been the least of the Sabres problems the first 2 games.
Well, I see it the other way round.
If Weber would have created the same mistakes (giveaway, 3-5 delay of the game penalty) this board would still be freaking out about him.
But yesterday those mistakes happened to myers. And while I agree with you that he might never become one of the top 5 defender of the league, why do you judge his mistakes different than the mistakes of other?
Don't get me wrong, I love myers and he is important for us. But yesterday, he almost cost us the game with his stupitness. The giveaway should have been a gial aigainst, same than Dion's laser from the point on the 3-5 pk (ehich hit the posts)
If they had scored on that two situation, I'm sure that we would have lost the game.
