I can't get a read on Kadri at all, his career can really go in any direction.
He showed some real skill last season, but Carlyle seems to bench him intermittently in games. Maybe Kadri pisses him off for not doing something right. Seems he'd have to bench a lot more players if that is what it is.
The team in front of Talbot is out playing the team in front of Lundqvist.
Oh wait, they're the same team? Hrmm… I wouldn't have known.
This is the real issue.
Of all Hank apologies and excuses, this must be the top one. Do you really believe in this? If yes, that means if we play Talbot we will get into the playoffs and even further? If yes, than be it. Who cares how we get our wins.
