However, as proud as I was to see them bend, bend and bend some more but never break, I was just as frustrated in the sense that I didn't think it was necessary or productive and I thought it was downright dangerous and scary.
I want a team that initiates contact and dictates pace.
I don't want a team that is going to spend more time than is needed in their own zone defending.
I want a PP that works and is dangerous. Doesn't even have to be top 5 in the league.
I want three lines that are dangerous offensively. I want a 4th line that can give me 5-8 minutes of defensively responsible hockey.
I don't think I am asking for, or expecting a lot.
I think we have the players to provide what I want in a hockey team.
I just hope the coach recognizes what he has and adjust his thought process to fit the team he has.
The last 2 games indicates that he has.
When Boyle gets back in there, it HAS to be in place of Asham.
Just not tonight against Boston
Can't disagree with any of this.
