Gill sits when Diaz is ready to play again. He is great on the PK, but we need puck movers
Cammelerri needs less ice time...he may be the softest player in the NHL, he loses so many puck battles. It kills any offensive momentum all the time. He's obviously in a funk right now...but wow, it seems like he has been this brutal all season.
More ice time for Eller. He is our only big center and he one of our few fowards who can win a puck battle along the boards
Still like Blunden as a 4th liner, big, has speed, can hit.
Louis Leblanc is good...but you can tell he needs to get bigger to be a more effective NHL'er. He bounces off guys like he's a paperweight.
Darche has been better this last bit. Always works hard.
So it's kneejerk time!!!!! We would have won....Hey we're a contender. We lose...HEY we lost all structure.
Hey people....we weren't 17-0 prior to today's game....geez....
Yet, if that great structure means that we are such an awful team that only the Martin system permitted us to be as average as we are....you know what will happen to Gauthier....and that's allllllll good with me.
Hmm....I have this sneaking feeling that Martin's system might be missed more than some people think. It probably hid some of this team's shortcomings.
Some much for JM blowing 3rd period games....because this one ain't on him.
Good, systems and a good goalie have been carrying this team for too long. Management needs to find out that you can't just keep icing crappy teams built on no philosophy and expect to make the playoffs.
