Holy overreacting Batman!
We have only played one game now Souray has to score 15 goals to keep his job? Once again people this is not fantasy hockey there is alot more to the games than stats.
The problem last night was simply a lack of support from the forwards. The effort was there but the gap control was not, it will take a few more regular season games to iron out this problem but with this coaching staff there should be no concerns about this problem not being adressed. Buffalo's speed and puck movement was able to exploit the open ice left between our forwards and defencemen but I am confident that Toronto is not capable of doing the same.
One thing I will say is that Souray and Rivet should never be paired together on the power play as they simple don't skate well enough to have them both pinching.
