I know I'm gonna take heat for this, but I don't like Dustin Byfuglien and I think the 'Peg should look to trade him...for as much offense as he provides, he makes soooo many stupid mistakes on the ice...
Mostly because getting DD's value up means we can potentially trade him. I've wanted to see if Desharnais at wing for a while now, since it would go a long way in determining his future, but the organization seems to refuse to do so.
I'm not even convinced Briere is an upgrade on Desharnais at this point honestly, maybe he would, and of course we all know about his track record at being clutch, but he's been more bad than good for a while now, and he even looks slow out there.
Well, if that's what it takes to get DD traded? I'm all in as well!
I haven't seen the same in regards to Brière vs DD. I haven't noticed Brière making as many mistakes as DD has soo far. While neither are producing as much as we'd like, and they're quite comparable in that domain, I have noticed Brière creating better opportunities, fighting for the puck more, defending better, taking away pucks and having better shots at net than DD. To me, Brière is contributing more than DD is even playing on the wing, a position he doesn't shine at. I believe that's thanks to his experience.
I am expecting a lackluster dopy effort from the Jets and expecting Pavs to suck because that’s how we roll when we play your team. We seem to love to stand around and watch your team skate and like to find out how good your power play is by giving you about 4 or 5 shots.
