I know when you love a prospect soooo much, they can do no wrong in your eyes, but come on.
nobody is dumping on the kid, just pointing out certain things...its not an attack on him.
and just to add...Stamkos was benched a few times in his rookie year,as well as seated in the pressbox so was Eberle, and Hall..its no slight on the player.
A neutral zone turnover that turns into a 3 on 3 doesn't cause a goal. It causes a possession. He tried to chip the puck to a wide open Gagner and Benn made a good play on it. It happens.
The play that prevented that possession from resulting in a good scoring chance was Yakuopov's. The play that created a prime scoring chance that caused the goal was when 25 year old Jeff Petry couldn't win a foot race against 41 year old Jaromir Jagr.
Yakupov is far from perfect but pointing towards last night's game as a reason for benching him is tremendously ignorant.
