I hope so. The decisions on the 4th line last night made no sense.
You've got two guys, Barch (useless) and Sutherby (pretty much useless plus dinged up) who Crawford specifically decided to insert into the lineup despite having 2 superior replacements, one of whom is a capable fighter in case the game got rough. But the weird part is that it's not like the course of the game changed his thinking or they proved to be ineffective. Right from the start you could tell that he didn't trust them. Either Eriksson, Richards, or Benn had to double shift with the 4th line the entire night. Against the Oilers. So it's like he knew that the line was going to suck but just did it anyway.
And double shifting Richards + playing him on the PK in place of Wandell + the back to back games factor is even more puzzling. I expect another shorthanded chance bonanza for Calgary.
I keep waiting for someone higher up on HF to come in and tell me to tone it down with the images. :X
I like the idea of opposing teams' fans with old computers coming in here and just getting destroyed and having to ctrl+alt+del --> end process. At least Stars fans know to wait until we've spammed this thing to the second page.
