Duh on my end. thanks.
But seriously. A raw rookie like Yak in 4 on 4 action?
I love Yak, don't get me wrong, but he wanders a lot and doesn't yet have the head for this nature of play against an exploiting vet team like the sharks. Good vet teams tend to play 4 on 4 better than youth.
SJ and Detroit particularly put on a clinic. I don't know that I want Yak out for that. Also, no goals were scored in that 11mins. Lets be clear here, theres 1000 posts on the board blaming the loss specifically on coaching and line management, in a shoot out loss...
Fact of the matter is we were largely running pad lines when the 2 GA happened to tie the game.
I'm just trying to offer a different perspective on this one.
