Nuge is telegraphing plays, most teams have a firm book on what he's trying to do almost everytime and right now is looking about as effective as Omark.

One of the real problems is when you haven't scored in 25games or so nobody even has to take you, just cover the guys you're trying to pass to. You open up offence when you can actually score yourself and represent a threat.

Nuge right now has a longer cold streak then any forward on this club and completely unacceptable playing on a topline with huge PP minutes.
Guess you need a new prescription then. Lehtonen was the difference maker, stopped him point blank when the game was still 2-1 in the third.

Nuge is doing fine. His puck recovery and play in his own end is amazing considering he's 19 and this is his second year of pro hockey. Heads up pass to spring Hall a few times, unlucky to be robbed of a goal. At some point, it's got to go in for him.
Look at Phil Kessel, took over 80 shots before he scored this year. It happens. Nuge is fine.
