until i see this team score (more than once or twice a game), i fear that i won't be able to turn the corner and take the upbeat approach i'd like to. you need to score to win. you need to win to build momentum... i feel like herm: you play to win the game!
When JT and MM are smothered and held off the scoreboard we have little chance of winning. Past that line our scoring ability is abysmal so the other teams throw all their checking at them. We tend to score off scrambles and broken plays anyway.
There is a good analysis on LHH about how our lack of a good break out play really hurts our offensive chances.
Nope, he was a prized free agent signing back in the summer... along with Watkins and DeFazio
ah yes.....someone else said (or maybe it was one of you) that he looks like PAP version 2.0. A no name player of a similar skills set, right wing and like PAP was on 2 teams before us. (I just looked that sh...stuff up)
I'm hoping to get a look at Hickey and Strait today. I would also hope to see Cizikas in the lineup as well......... and along with enough Islander goals to win the game, I'd like to see Carkner drop the mitts for the first time as an Islander. Carkner is a beast!!
