He has the worst hockey mind I have ever seen and he does not have a clue how to play hockey, and people realized that this year that he had a hell of a fluke year his rookie year because he was allowed to play offense, which is the only thing he can do , and if he is ever going to have a good career in the NHL, whoever has him must realize that.....im sorry and I know there are people who like myers but every single time he gets the puck he makes the wrong choice with it,
and stop with the "he's young he'll get better" because pardy, psysyk, webber are young and they make quick smart decisions with the puck
, whether it's tsaking the hit to make the pass, or chipping it back behind the net to get it to the other d-man, or getting it up to the winger who is breaking out, they know what they are going to do with the puck before they get it, so even if it's the wrong choice, at least it was quick and they can try and correct it because they understand the possible outcomes of their decisions, but Myers, he has PROVEN that he can't use his size to an advantage, he refuses to take the body as much as he has to hear it from everone, and he is only getting worse...there is no reason to think that he will ever have a year like his rookie year, and there is no reason to think he is going to have anything other that a horrible performance for the rest of his career, and with all they put o him to do....when he has a year like this yeart, it is the difference bewtween a bad team and a good team....guarenteed if he was not in the line up and we did not have to fight back in so many games from his game losing mistakes, we'd have at least 10 more points and be sitting pretty.....i blame myers for a huger part of buffalo's downfll and youm should too.............I cant stand him....just cut your losses, and get the helk rid of stafford because he is horrible is his own zone as well, and does not make up for it either
None of those 3 play anywhere near the minutes that are expected of Myers. Even in a down year like this one Myers was averaging over 21mins a night but he is expected to play 23-25mins a night. Pysyk/Pardy are averaging just under 16mins a night and Weber gets about 18mins. Also of those other 3 only Pysyk (21 years old) is younger than Myers (23yrs). Pardy is not young, he's a 29 year old vet thats struggled to stay in the NHL. Weber has finally got his game where we've always hoped it would get to and he's 25 years old. He's an example of why you show patience with dmen because they usually take time.
I agree with you that Myers' struggles are a big reason we are where we are in the standings. But I would rather fix him than toss him away.
