Do those blaming him for that even watch that goal, or did they just check the boxscore, see the minus, and immediately jump down his throat?
I watched the game and I stand by my statement that Babchuk/Harrison should NEVER EVER be out on the ice together again. He might not have been at fault, but that pairing was BRUTAL.

Babchuk is not the best skater and at times is immobile. He needs to be paired with someone who can actually skate and can cover up his mistakes, ie Corvo or Pitkanen. I've made jokes with the pair of Pitkanen/Babchuk, but they did do well with each other last go round. Babchuk and Harrison, who is just horrible, should never be a pair, its a disaster waiting to happen.

And I don't disagree with that. Pairing him with Harrison would be the same as pairing him with Melichar (the pairing that happened before Babs/Pitkanen).

It's a bit odd how many haters that Harrison has as compared to Babchuk, and the only difference between them is that Babchuk can shoot the puck harder than thor. Harrison might even have slightly better foot speed than Babchuk.

I hope Harrison comes in and plays like he can play if he does earn a spot. I know he has better play in him.

When you can consistently score, you're contributing. When you can't score or defend, you're not.
