Dynamo's coach is ****ing annoying me. Backstrom only got 16 minutes today.

Him and Ovechkin seem to be stuck at 16 minutes tops.

Why would a coach give lots of ice time to players who might depart at any moment? His team is expected to make a long post-season run, so he can't fully rely on mercenaries.

I can point out several other players getting plenty of TOI, above their NHL TOI or at it even though they are sucking.
Znarok still has 3 months of playing till any meaningful game in the KHL. Why worry?

I guess if NHL season will be cancelled we will see some bump in 32/69 ice time. But first NB should get in shape / adapt to the league. Why worry now, again?

This is a disturbing deviation from his normal schedule of not working out.

Looking around the division.

Lindback sucks in Finland. St Louis, Lecavalier, Stamkos all lazy. Hedman is doing good, but this is pure luck, guy was pylon on big ice in WC.

Florida has a lot of injuries. Goc, Bergeneim, Gudbranson, Kopecky + more. A lot of core is lazy and not playing hockey.

Carolina Staal brothers lazy. Semin playing alright. Skinner lazy(And confirmed will stay lazy during whole lockout). Cam Ward lazy.

Evander Kane 11 games 1 goal -6 in KHL. Pavelec sucks 4-10 .896 sv% in Czech league. Enstrom nothing special in Austrian league. Wheeler nothing special in German league. Andrew Ladd signed with KHL, he's beta male so his wife stopped taking BC and got pregnant.

Feeling good about Caps.

@Liberation Pavelec was something else when he faced Russian in the Eurotour game. Stopped Kuznetsov, Anisimov and the rest to give his team a W.

I wouldn't say he sucks, though he certainly hasn't been lights out. And he's only played two games.

So Kuznetsov is winning just 30% of his faceoffs. That's not cool.

He's winger. Backstrom though is up in the 60s maybe 70s still.

Oh yeah and Backstroms second goal, never seen him do a snapshot ever like that before. With the improved face offs, taking away the puck easily from 2 good defensive teams in the playoffs, he is still improving as a player. Which is very nice.

Its a weak assist, but Ovechkin should of been given assist on OT winner.
