Weber, Klein, Cullen, and Gaustad all with more goals allowed while on the kill. Singling Hendricks out ignores that there are three other players with a role on the PK and if the entire unit isn't working together as one it fails. Right now our PK is hit or miss ... allowing nothing or two goals in a game with no middle ground.
You're so worried about arguing you miss the entire point. Doesn't matter if it's Spaling or Hendricks, dressing either of the 2 penalty killers when we have team full of guys that can do it, makes no sense. I don't care which one you sit but one of them should, Spaling, Hendricks, I don't care, we need offense, we need puck possession. Stalberg needs to play, sit one of those 2.
Hell if it was up to me, both would sit, I don't think either of them have earned a spot.
