one of our best players? are you actually being serious?
yes, Ortmeyer had heart, but IMO that's about all he had. a future captain? the guy couldn't score a goal on an empty net from three feet out.
yes, he'll be missed, but
off the ice
, not on it. Jed on the PK v Drury on the PK, wouldn't you rather have someone on the PK that can net a shorthanded goal every now and again? apparently not. don't you remember the Buffalo series that ended our season? I can still picture Drury on the PK dropping down in front of Miller blocking shots. I remember one instance vividly when he actually made a kick-save, the puck never got to the net.
Jed's 'return' had absolutely
to do with the surge. if you truly believe that, I pity you.
