From Sutter moments ago:
After last night’s game, Sutter said he needed more from top players, and reiterated it again today when he said, “Kopi and Brownie are struggling. They’ve got to get to the area, that strong area, that area that’s hard to play in. They’ve got to get there and be going there, and then it will come for them.”
If we get Stoll back in the lineup, we have to decide what we want to do. We put Marty [Alec Martinez] in for Slava, and then Drew [Davis Drewiske] in for Marty. Are we getting enough?
