Great thread idea. Let it all hang down.
a) Desharnais and Plekanec are useless without bigger forwards flanking them.
b) I'm so done with Diaz, too small and ineffectual, his offensive ability does not outweigh his sub-par defensive attributes.
c) Tinordi is actually better than Diaz and Bouillon on the point. He has great offensive awareness for a big man. I wouldn't try him on the PP, but wow am i impressed. On the flip side, he's still playing like a rookie in his own zone.
d)The new hybrid icing rules will really help a guy like Murray. He's quite slow, but with the new rules, he won't have to "race" back to get the puck. His return to the lineup will be huge, imo.
e) Our team defense is awful. I see a lot of forwards trying to race up the ice to create odd man rushes instead of trying to smartly move the puck up. The goals we gave up were tap-ins because of it.
f)Replace White with Bournival already. White seems to make a critical error per game. His stupid attempt at a check resulted in a 2-on-1 on the first goal. His fighting skills and feistiness do not outweigh his sub-par hockey sense.
