No it was clutch offence. They were outshooting flyers 40-20 and losing 3-2. Yeah Price wasn't great but the team should've been burying more than 2 goals per game. It's the same shots into kneepads/logos we see now (Kovalev last night), making opposition goalies look spectacular when they're completely beat. Sundin would've been the difference against Philly as long as his hands didn't freeze up like Kovalev's, Higgins' and Andrei's too. It's like all the big scorers on the habs have been in a scoring slump since April.
We didn't lose because of the lack of offense.
We lost because Price collapsed, for some reason people always forget that.
Price saved us couple times vs Boston, but didn't help us at all vs Philly.
Sundin wouldn't have changed a thing.
I have a hard time believing this deal anyways. Can't understand why BG would have traded Higgins for Sundin but not for Hossa.
We weren't gonna send Higgins/Grabo/1st/Halak for Hedberg/Hossa, but we'd do it for Sundin who's not better than Hossa??..
Makes very little sense to me.
I never doubt McKenzie, but I just don't see how it makes sense considering Bob said no to Waddell.
Yes I do, and Higgins is far removed from the player he was in his 1st two seasons (injury included). I am probably his biggest fan.
However, one needs to look at the player for what he brings and frankly it's not much right now. If we need defensive specialist, then let's get a real one and not a supposed top six winger parading around as one because he is a shadow of his former self.
