Furthermore I could spin it this way: You say (or I suppose your friend) AV finally came to his senses and moved Schroeder up in the lineup? I say Schroeder started playing better because he was sent down to the minors, motivating him to step it up.
The PP has obviously been better as of late but it is still abysmal considering how electric it was just a few years ago. The team is all around under performing this season and I fail to see how someone can put the full blame on AV.
Would have to look at the rest of the schedule, but two of those wins came against LA and STL, two teams that at the time were a head of us in the standings, and the STL one was on the back half of a back to back.
We also beat (can't believe I am about to say this)) CBJ, who was at the time the hottest team in the NHL.
I think we can agree what has happened here, Cory caught fire.
