It's always the other guys fault
So it's the rookie who was playing his first two games fault??? Not the veterans that are bleeding scoring chances and goals against, while getting owned along the boards all over the ice.
Sure Hemsky and Gagner have had a few nice dangles and scored nice goals in the SO, but they have been awful as far as defensive zone coverage and turnovers are concerned.
I guess people are expecting Yakupov to come in and immediatly carry the 2nd line and inflate Gagners value like Hall and Eberle have.
