Or you're overrating Couturier and Schenn. One was a #1 D, and did well. Another is still used as a 3rd liner. The other is in his sophomore year and scored less points than PK in his rookie year.
It's not about overrating or underrating really. It's about getting more, and PMDs that can play in all situations, while logging upwards of 25min versus the toughest opponents and still be effective, is just way more valuable.
look that was a **** period. but it's the 1st game of the year. no exhibitions, no nothing. and the leafs didn't look a whole lot better. we scored the first goal. it was called back and then gave up 3 pps. what do people expect?
the big guys looks slow - esp. maxpac and cole right now. i expect the team to get better as the game progresses
ps 2-0 B's over NYR - who look like crap too right now
