We don't have players who can make passes 5 on 5 and we have trouble bringing the puck in on a power play. If you watch Chicago their biggest asset is they are a terrific passing team. Something that we never have. We have Legwand and Erat making passes not only make you scratch your head but wonder what were they thinking. Erat and Legwand on the power play haven't a clue what to do on the sideboards. Legwand is scared to shoot and Erat only shoots after he circles around and if the shot is blocked present a break the other way. How many games this year have we scored the first goal?
Again, offensively on this 5 game road trip we've scored 16 goals, and only won 1 of those games.
In those 5 games the horrible Legwand has 5 points, and the horrible Fisher has 3 goals and 4 points.
I understand beating up players that are playing bad, but those 2 aren't our problems right now.
Erat on the other hand did not have a point on the road trip. He's getting top line minutes, powerplay time and the team is scoring, he should have atleast been involved some.
Our problem this road trip has mainly been Rinne.
