That's the thing that I did not see. On a few plays in defensive zone he did what you described. He paused looked at the play and did nothing about it. The only time he's shown some fervor on that rush towards DP's net. Other than that, he lost every loose puck battle.

Some thoughts:

As others have pointed out this team is incredibly soft. Ville brings nothing! I thought he was supposed to hit. Haven't seen that yet. Hollweg needs to play. He may take some needless penalties but so does Ville.

Ward has played ok. The biggest thing he brings is that he does forecheck and will throw the occasional hit. More than we can say for most of the forwards.

As we've all said all season the d is incredibly soft. Problem is their is no one on the farm ready to come up and change that. Other than a trade I can't see this changing in the near future.

The officiating was horrible. Too one sided. Jagr was getting tugged at all night long and the refs didn't call it. If your going to call em close you gotta catch them on both sides.
