worrying about cup winners hasn't done much in the past for our team or the teams who actually won the cup, lets just get good players

Laich may have played a game or two there. He never got a long look because he was clearly horrible at it.
Laich always played center, they would have other people take face offs for him because he sucked at it.

You have this exactly backwards.

So all the things I remember about Laich being the guy down low helping dman during 09-10 is wrong?

Not saying he was a great 2nd center, hes just a terrible shutdown center. No coach ever thinks oh God Laich is on get our first line off the ice.

He's actually considered a faceoff specialist of sorts.

http://*******************/articles/...e-scott-nichol edit: google "brooks laich faceoff percentage" and click the second link

He never sticks at center because he's terrible at it positionally.

Edit:

Laich has taken 40% more faceoffs than anyone else on the team this year.

But still doesn't play center.

He isn't, I don't see how people say that. In 09-10 he was 43%. This year hes sub 49%, which is still bad.

Hes mostly going against first line centers which typically aren't even great face off people themselves, so how he pulls off the face off specialist losing 51% of his face offs is beyond me.

Devils are losers of five straight...as long as you don't count this one where they handed the Caps their *****.
