Russell sucked. Cole was very good. In each of the Dallas, Minnesota, and Columbus games, the Blues won on the back of one great period. It's clear they're good enough to do that, but I hope it doesn't become a habit.
Sobotka has been playing closer to his peak than most, if not all, players on the team.

Sobotka's peak isn't near that of other players on the team.

Sobotka is playing at a 9 out of 10 right now, something few if any other players are doing.

Sobotka's 9 out of 10 doesn't impact the game the way McDonald, Backes, or Stewart's 9 out of 10 does.
