Is anyone impressed with Langebrunner's play? I am not seeing it personally.

Don't like the Polak-Jax pairing. Can't move the puck well enough.

Complete agreement. Not a strong pairing at all.

Yeah that guy is a joke. In fact all these guys are a bit a joke and don't have a clue about any of the Blues' players.

Yea your right. I just hate the wings so much and it always seems they get the benefit of the doubt from the refs.

edit: point in fact

I think we're seeing the same sorts of plays, but just interpreting them differently. I don't have any problems with that, for the record.

This last play seems like a good example of what we're talking about. Russell has the puck and decides to curl back into the Blues zone when he encounters pressure with no clean outlet. He eludes the pressure, passes it to his partner while the team resets, and then they move forward...but against a defense that's now set and with less momentum/room to work with. Alternatively, he could have chipped the puck up the boards (basically his only play at the time), or tried to power his way to the red line through pressure for a dump in (a much more dangerous option at that point), to maintain the momentum of the play in a more north/south style.

What he did was a possession play, very much one like what the Wings would use, but I can definitely see how it could be considered "momentum killing" as well at the same time. Without knowing what Hitchcock prefers in that situation, I don't really know whether it was the "right" or "wrong" play according to what the Blues are trying to do...and, as a result, I think it's perfectly reasonable to interpret a play like that in different ways.

I do think, however, that the sort of things we're talking about is beyond the average fan at the Asylum who is complaining about him. Why do they think he's playing so badly?

I thought you were grouping me in the general Blues fan comments, but thats semantics for ya. Thanks for clarifying.

I agree that we are talking about the same play. I prefer the defenseman makes a different kind of play there, but I can see why you don't see it that way.

I don't know why the Asylum folks rag on him. I I try to keep away from their hate threads.

These refs are terrible. Not just against us. Bad calls both ways

How does Backes get a penalty on that, but Bertuzzi's elbow on Jackman goes uncalled?


That said, the Blues do not look sharp.
