Wish they brought up Akeson.

Starting to think we really overestimated Simmonds' abilities and he's regressing to how he was with the Kings: a gritty 3rd liner who can't do much of anything with the puck on his stick.

Otherwise, I dont get all the B. Schenn hate (not this thread, but recently). Guys been one of the only ones getting consistent scoring chances, and he's also our leading scorer.

Couturier as well; he could use some more confidence in the offensive zone, but he's one of the only ones that consistently drives play up the ice from what I've noticed. Even with that black hole Talbot trying to move the puck the other way.

We really need to see more from Giroux, Voracek, Simmonds and Hartnell. 2/3 of our top 6 has been garbage so far. Still don't know what the hell Chief was thinking putting Simmonds on the top line. Hartnell shouldn't be there either (if he wasn't injured) with how he's played since the start of last season.
