I thought Regehr got exposed pretty badly today. Looked like he had trouble with the faster Hawks forwards and he made some horrible pinches.
You could replace "Regehr" in your sentence with "Kings" and you pretty much described the performance of every player in Game One. They all looked exposed out there, and yes, even Doughty looked bad out there.
For never playing with intensity. They simply showed up and as usual, Quick kept them in the game only to have another brilliant performance be thrown in the trash. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
I like Martinez, but he isn't exactly the type of defenseman I'm talking about. Would you feel comfortable with him as your replacement for Mitchell or Scuderi?
I guess Regher is supposed to be the replacement for Mitchell. Seeing how Muzzin has developed over the course of this playoff year, and knowing what Martinez can do, it would not surprise me at all to see those two playing not Greene or Scuderi out of their jobs (though Scuderi may leave on his own), but Regher, sometime in the next one to two years. This team needs defensemen who can move the puck out of the zone quickly, and Regher cannot do that.
Can you amnesty a player as soon as his new contract kicks in?
This please. Just ****ing brutal. I really don't think he understands how to play a 1 on 1 to save his ****ing life. You either step up on the guy or get out of the ****ing way so your goalie can see the shot. He does neither. He just screens Quick. And **** for brains. **** I want Willie back.
