Me too. I used to think he'd be better than Subban (I was watching the OHL frequently).. got reemed here for it. Thought after awhile that maybe they were right, lol. But he's playing amazing so far this year.
The only way they can make me a believer again with the coaches and players we have now is to win 4 of the next 6 games. That would be a start. Otherwise, a win tonight might just be a short term relief for PG/JM.
Plekanec needs to get back playing center on PPs. We have powerful slapshots in Weber and Subban, we need to setup these shots on the PP. I really don't understand the strategy (or lack of) on the powerplay.
Comparing Cole on the PP last year with this year is stupid anyway, his big frame wasn't as big of an asset to Hurricanes as it is to us. Because we lack in that department him on PP crashing the net becomes a lot more important than it was to CAR
Well there was a lot of bad in that period, but besides the obvious positive of the last second goal by Weber, I also thought Subban was quietly very good that period. Seemed to win almost all of his board battles and generally got the puck to someone who had time to do something with it.
