I don't know what NHL's scorekeepers standard for turnovers are, but they're wrong. He has like twice as many as they recorded. At least.
Yup.

Purely putrid. He looks like he's 15 seconds behind in the game. He looks like he's skating in cement, but he's never been that good of a skate to begin with.
Yup.

I want him gone.

Gabby doesn't fit the squad, Boyle doesn't fit and appears to be suffering from a lack of confidence, MDZ while being better defensively is a rush oriented player, not a guy who is all that skilled when setting up in the zone.

But Richards...? Richards has been flat-out ****. Gomez/Drury/Redden level ****.
