Kind of getting to harsh towards our team recently
That's why I'd love to remind us all that we are tied for 1st in Atlantic and have just recently destroyed some of our favourite foes (i.e. almost all of them)
Never been a fan of using the term "garbage" in reference to a player. Yeah sure in the heat of the moment while watching a game you can blurt out things but once it's over you should be able to calm down and find a more articulate way to speak your mind.
As much as I was disappointed in the loss after I realized the team is still better than I anticipated to start the year and Lou and Pete are working to find that missing piece to go on another run. This team might be in a bit of a slump but don't think for a minute that this team isn't ready to sacrifice themselves for each one more time just to finish the mission they left unfinished. They are still a tight group. Imagine rooting for any of the other tri-state area teams. Gives me the heebee jesbees.
I'd argue that it is Larsson. His top end speed isn't great, but he is very agile on his skates for his size.
I feel like we've never even seen where Larsson's top end speed could be (at least not in-game). From what I've seen/can remember, I feel like he's barely taken on the role (or been given the opportunity) of being the guy actually skating the puck up the ice/taking the zone. For the most part, he's been a guy making the breakout pass, or in some cases being the defenseman trailing on the play. I don't think his top end speed is exactly earth shattering, but most of the speed we have seen from him has been a product of his stride and overall agility/mobility. And we haven't seen much of him having to sprint back because he got terribly beat on a play going towards his own net (which isn't a bad thing).
If he was on the PP, perhaps say in the role of Zidlicky, I think we would get a better feel of what his speed really is. Again, probably not anything too amazing, but I think he could be a little faster than the way he has played.
