That wouldn't bother me, but Palmieri wasn't on 2nd line at all. It was Beleskey-Ryan-Selanne. Which was stupid. They want to play a more defensive lineup later in the game fine, but taking him off that line the whole game was asinine.
I see your point - yeah those initial lines bothered me as well. Palmieri played on the second line for the second period though and some of the third I'm pretty sure. I agree Palmieri should be there ahead of Beleskey.
I would be nice to have the Samueli's put some $ towards seamless boards and a better ice cooling system, like Burke used to mention.
There is not much that can be done with Honda Center ice. The only thing Burke could do was to cool the building down a few degrees on game day. There are too many events at the HC that play havoc with the ice surface (same problem with other high traffic venues like Madison Square Garden and Staples Center).
