Lucia acknowledged that Schmidt became the defensive key

I just thought he was good in all situations and in any role you asked him to play, Guentzel said.

Don't look at what the coach says; look at what he does. Lucia has an undrafted junior who is smallish who is putting up great offensive numbers so he praises his defensive game for public consumption. And I didn't say Brady is better defensively at this point, you stated Schmidt is Norris quality compared to him which is ridiculous. Regarding the healthy scratch, the night after getting shut out he went with his most offensive set of D-men and so Brady had a night off. You think Mike Reilly is a better defender than Brady too? He was in the lineup.
