Kopitar is like Hanzal (Stumpel works too) right now, maybe even worse. Depressing, I hope for future's sake he's fighting a tough injury because his play has been unacceptable. Can't believe we've gotten this far playing like this...
A big difference from this year and last year is that Brown was the one lowering the boom on hits like the one Boland landed. It was as borderline, on the edge of a legal hit as you can get. Was a lot more fun when we were doing the damage and the other teams fans were doing the *****ing.
He was hitting pretty well tonight. I think he had 3 during the final pk, one just destroying Toews.
I was overall not displeased, but the way they handled themselves in the last ten minutes was just awful, embarrassing and just unacceptable. We need toffoli in and we need him now. Would like to see Martinez in for muzzin.
Dude, fans have been clamoring for it. We're not going to see Muzzin in the press box. It will cost us the series.
Brown took out two guys in the first period. Hitting doesn't have a thing to do with us not winning. It's guys like Kopitar playing like Josef Stumpel.
Don't get me wrong, that's not why we're not winning. Kopitar & Brown's production is the top concern. I was simply referencing the complaints on the Boland hit, remembering how pissed off Brown had Canuck & Coyotes fans last year. It's just a lot more fun when it's your guy lowering the boom.
Well judging by all the games we've won...just look what he's done in them. Without him on the power play we're screwed.
Kopitar is becoming a recurring problem. I don't really know what to say about him to be honest.
Besides Quick, the whole team were horrible tonight including Doughty. They look a step slower and less aggressive than the Hawks and the horrible passing just topping it off. This game should have been 4-1 if it wasn't for Quick.
