I agree Seguin is Definitely feeling the pressure to get a goal.
He know's hes the go to guy to score, and hes not scoring, so of course he's "gripping the stick to tight".
As for the miss on the empty net, well it happens. It wasn't as bad as Bourque's, i think Seguin was just trying to get the shot through the two islanders that were standing in front of him trying to block it.
I'm sure hell get going, and have a two, or three point night soon. (hopefully)
What's the limit for a player assist. Let's say seguin passes the puck to Marchand and pass it lucic and lucic passes it to chara to and dougie scores., do all four players get an assist or just the three players.
I may be the only one but I don't think Bourque is that bad. Nor do I think he's sticking out like a sore thumb. He makes good decisions. He just looks too jittery..like he's desperate to make a play. While I like that, he just needs to calm down a bit. He's hardly having a bad time here.
I agree that Bourque is nothing special, but he's definitely not as bad as some of you are saying...
The entire 3rd line has been starting slow, I know we need a whipping boy but come on. Give him some time, we don't have much of a better option. Pandolfo would be ripped to shreds, more so than Bourque is already... Spooner wouldn't be much of a difference, and he's better off with a year in Providence with first line minutes. He'll be much better next year than he would be this year with a whole season of premium ice time in the AHL. Caron is hurt and was struggling in Providence, is he a better option than Bourque?
