Tyler Myers worth a look? Or is he just another lazy tool who got paid and doesn't give a crap anymore?
My friend's a Buffalo fan, so I watch a few Sabres games. He still looks like a really driven player and shows a lot of emotion, but I think Myers and Tallinder had some Batman and Robin thing going on when he first entered the league, he hasn't seemed that confident and effective since.
This is why I'm kind of liking the whole break-up-Carlson-and-Alzer-and-put-them-with-"vets" experiment. Carlson and Hamrlik for a spell? Can't hurt.
How many times do you see Carlson leading the charge over the blue line?
Not nearly as many times as I've seen him floating around the defensive zone, watching the puck and looking confused, as his assignment skates past him for a wide-open opportunity (and probably scores a goal). Carlson's "effort" at that point usually consists of a half-assed, flat-footed hook or slash attempt at the guy blowing by him.
Ive seen enough of Wolski and ready to move on. I hope we are just showcasing him on top line to get a better trade for him when we dump him at the deadline.
Yeah, WW clearly isn't a long term solution to anything. I'd also move Chimmer at the TDL since he's getting into his mid-30s, and his speed game is going to drop off significantly sometime in the not-too-distant future.
Thanks. His comment about knowing there was going to be a lockout makes me positive. If I was in his position, I would have done the same. He would have ticked of some home fans by going to Washington, then turn-around and not have a job.
It will be interesting if OV will turn it around once he gets here. If Kuz is as good as advertised, he could quickly become the most loved in DC. I can't imagine OV would like that. Maybe get fire under his ass.
