Was watching the Rags/Bruins game and Rolston shattered the glass with a slapshot Happy Gilmore style with 2:53 left in first so the refs just suspended it and sent the teams to intermission. The remaining 2:53 was played right before the second period... Really bizarre.
Tim Wallace simply shouldn't have been put on waivers. I realize Snow prolly just didn't think in a hundred years that anyone would have taken him.
But still, in hindsight, and unfortunately we'd pretty much all have said this if we had had the chance to do so, Wallace should have stayed and played 4th line minutes while Niederreiter was sent back to Portland. Wallace checked more than anyone on the team other than Martin and he got his nose dirty. He wasn't even bad with the puck. He clearly did what the coach asked of him.
Snow could have done right with Niederreiter while maintaining a solid, hard-working 4th liner who was EARNING his pay.
Now we don't even have this guy for Bridgeport's playoff run, where he SURELY could have helped. The guy had 20 points in 24 games before being called up to the bigs.
Yet another little miscalculation on Snow's behalf that wasn't thought out properly.
All the more reason to be sour about how gobs of players went through waivers shortly before the deadline and Snow didn't feel it necessary to even try and rectify this little blunder.
And this ain't the first time...
These little disappoint me - as much as the little inconsistencies on the ice that have led to so many losses this year.
