On the bright side, who really thought they'd be the in the 2nd round anyway?? If for once in their life, they can actually retain some of the lessons learned in the Boston series, and this one, maybe next year they actually have a fighting chance at the finals or beyond.. Playing coin flip hockey with "this group" is just that, a coin flip.. 6-6 in the playoff so far.. Not exactly a power house just yet.. Need another solid defender and a legit 2C, plus a full season of reps for Holtby and maybe just maybe we can be a team who plays solid D -AND- puts boots on throats in the offensive end..
Based on merit, that should be the lineup for Wednesday. But it won't be.
Ward merits a spot in the lineup? And why now? I'd rather play Sjorgen, seriously. Ward doesn't deserve even a spot on the plane home. He has sucked, and tonight that was no accidental stick. When I watch that I see a selfish SOB who was pissed about something and swung his stick around like a rotten child. No way I want to see that P.O.S. in the lineup, especially on merit.
