Why therrien changed is line and put eller on the 4th line. The 4th line bring energy and it was a perfect 4th line....the desharnais line wasn't doing anything...its not like moen will change something
3 of the goals were on funny bounces, the last one was a guy walking in from the slot.
Just one of those games where Ottawa is getting all the bounces. Alfredsson had one gift wrapped. The other O'brien gets hit in the had and whacks it in in a scrum. 3rd one went off Emelin. No chance on the first 3.
I don't find them to be a good team, I thought they overachieved last year and this year they are off to a hot start, if they make a deep run in the playoffs i'll give them their due but untill that happens they get no credit from me, I still think they don't have a great team on paper
look 4-2 is a great start for a 15th place team BUT
can't rely on 1 line and two rookies - and a 1st unit
especially on the road with no line match-ups +
mediocre back-up goalie.
it is what it is.
Subban will get Kaberle off this ****ing team and help 2nd unit
pp but the lack of depth up front with pacioretty injured hurts.
don't know the answer right now. replace white with blunden?
bench eller? these are cosmetic.
we're a few years away from being a contender. we lack quality depth
up front - especially at center - but it is better.
ps don't expect MB to make trades 6 games into the season
