Does Carlyle not understand or just simply not care?
#1 - Jake Gardiner,
Needs no explanation. Wow talk about incomprehensible.
#2 - Korbinian Holzer,
What a terrific 1st pairing dman he is... Yeah nevermind, guys awful. Clearly he deserves 17 games more than Gardiner to solidify himself though.
#3 - The Goons,
Colton Orr played 4:38 in the third period tonight. Grabovski played 3:40. We also know about the Kadri - Orr situation and how Carlyle knowingly made half the ice completely ineffective.
#4 - Grabovski,
Grabovski gets 34.8% offensive zone start percentage to go along with playing the toughest competition on the team. Remember when Grabovski could score 30 goals and carry us some nights? Seems like a distant memory now that he's a shutdown center a la Sutter.
#5 - Bozak,
1st pick to go in the shoot out, gets more icetime than any other forward on the team and has never ONCE been demoted or on a line without JVR/Kessel (PK excluded).
#6 - PHANEUF,
Phaneuf is being used as a defensive dman with zero offensive opportunity excluding the power play (goes without being said), yet has made an entire career off of his offense. Ron Wilson used to successfully hide him defensively (quality of competition) and would give him a 49.4% offensive zone start percentage as oppose to the 39.2% Randy gives him. You can talk about him evolving as a player and all that stuff, but could you imagine if Phaneuf was being hidden a la Franson?
