I'm not trying to be a Legwand fanboy, or claim that he's Gretzky out there. But the Legwand line with Erat and Wilson have been producing the best scoring chances in the last two games, including a goal by Legwand against the Ducks.

And if you think the coaching staff gives him a pass, maybe you missed the first 10 years of his NHL career when he was constantly called out in the media for not showing enough offense.

If anything it's not so much a problem with Legwand and Fisher, it's the Trotz system where those are the type of centers that he wants on the ice. We complain about their lack of production and they keep getting sent out there and don't get criticized by the staff and it's because they are doing the things that Trotz wants them to do. Most any other coach would only want one or two of these type at center and they would never sniff the top two lines.
