One of the major drawbacks of the Nash trade was that it gave us less depth, and now we don't have as much cap space to improve the bottom six or find a sixth defenseman. I don't like the idea of overusing our top guys but our other options are so lousy that I can't blame torts for doing so, especially with Cally out.
He does this regardlessly. He did it last year. And the year before. And he did it in Tampa. With a freak cup homerun as a result - until he got run outta Dodge...
Reminds me of a crazy coach I had in juniors that always won the league every year but our top guys were so gassed in the playoffs that we never went more than a round. He was a creepy guy too, slept with his eyes open... It was so frustrating (me being a goalie
) to get this deja vu feeling here again.
Regarding the icetime - if there were to be any kind of accountability - he should NOT PLAY the top 3 guys now on the PP with what they are putting up there. Play anyone and everyone else. Results could hardly could get worse there anyways. Pretty sure Rupp, Halpern & Asham would have scored as many goals on the 5 on 3 that our big guns have racked up. That might send them a wakeup signal too - no? I am dead serious.
There may be flaws in the lineup, but I see more coaching flaws than roster flaws here! Using Girardi on the PP instead of Stralman is just one thing of very many...
