Their possession game is pitiful without Backstrom.
Even with Backstrom it was pretty pitiful. Without him it's officially abysmal.
I still don't understand the off season moves besides Halpern, but whatever. Lucky to win that one given how we had 0 sustained offense. I hope GMGM finds a way to turn some of these guys around for veterans with hands.
You guys should pay attention to the outlet plays, Ovechkin is usually the one getting it into the zone for the first line because Hamrlik and Kundratek can't get pucks out of the zone properly, usually just to the other teams defenseman.
Its hard to cycle when you can't get outlet passes period.
Also I think Brouwer should be first line not Semin...
ok...had to watch the carolina cast. they sort of mentioned wideman going after skinner and didnt mention anything about the post game scrum. no video at all. can anyone give me a recap on what happened there?
