Mister Emelin was pretty impressive. While Mister Subban is just not himself lately. Mister Price should work out on his rebounds that way he could be called......Mister Freeze.
Mister Pacioretty looked out of sync. Mister Desharnais and Plekanec are showing that at that size, even with that great talent, when they are off, they are totally off. When they are in, they are amongst very good players. Mister Cammalleri is incredibly inconsistent to say the least. Mister Leblanc didn't play much and yet when he did, he was noticeable. Mister Eller, one day, will need to show that he can contribute offensively.
Anyway, okay game with a predictable result. WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS NEXT GAME! MARK MY WORDS. The Nucks will go like this at the end of the 1st period....
Well, it's always easy to second guess the guys that JM puts out for the shootout, but it seems pretty clear that Kostitsyn should have had a shot at it. Not quite sure why DD was in there, he's not exactly a goal scorer. Does anyone have Cammalleri's shootout stats? Is he bad at it or something? Is that why he's not in there as well? Seems like he'd be a natural choice, even though he's more of a sniper than a "make a great move" kind of scorer.
At this point if JM is still the coach here next season I don't see any incentive for AK to want to re-sign here.. AK constantly gets the short end of the stick from JM which I'm sure must be frustrating for AK at this point..
I think the only way AK comes back next year is if JM is gone which sadly I don't see happening..
long in the sense that Cali is far away, like in 3 time zones away. Eastern teams often suck when they come back from the west coast. Players shouldn't and rarely do use that as an excuse, but it's a fact of life.
