beauty goal by Grabovski... Gainey's genius keeps on giving, and giving and giving...
But WTF JM, how do you not understand that Gill, as much of a warrior as he is, IS NOT SUITED FOR 4 on 4???
all 5 of the other Dmen in the lineup are excellent skaters, and all are better puck handlers than Gill... how does a coach with that much experience not figure out such an obvious connection.
that's, imo, a perfect reflection of his weakness as a coach... to stuck in the past, not able/willing to adjust his beliefs/instincts/ideas to today's NHL.
it may be late in the game, it may be overtime, but given the difference in space (and as a result the impact of a player's personal skill set on his effectivness), you need to play guys that can move, Gill is NOT that kind of player, so should have his butt glued to the bench unless absolutely necessary.
