This team really misses Michael Sauer, who brings all of the defensive positives that Girardi does, with the added bonus of being a terrific breakout passer and a better decision maker with the puck, especially when carrying the puck in his own zone.

Passing has brought this team's offense down for years; it was the big issue last year, and it has been the big issue this year. A big part of that is the passing from the defense, too.

Excellent points all around.

Sauer, yet another sad fate in whats been way too many sad outcomes with our draft picks the last 15 years.
