but this squad is better than last year's squad....can we have a little patience please
You know, it's funny you should say that, because I still can't rationalize that the moves that were made this summer made the team worse. Maybe we were just always heading for the cliff, anyways. Maybe the players are slightly better but just don't care to play for Ruff. I don't know. It's a funny thing to try and explain, but if you can explain how drew stafford went from scoring .5 GPG to .17 GPG, you're on your way there. If you can explain how Derek Roy went from being on an 82 point pace to a 44 point pace, you're getting there. If you can explain how Ryan Miller went from being a popular preseason vezina pick to being a popular choice to lose his job to an entirely unremarkable backup, you're on your way. On paper, the team should be better than lest year, for sure, but it's like half the roster started a heroin habit over the offseason or something.
The offseason of 2011 Buffalo Sabres heroin parties. I think someone should investigate this.
Only saw the first 2 periods but I thought he was playing pretty well and he did get a goal an an assist
I don't want to start an argument but did you see his numerous turnovers?
Or, St. Louis's 2nd goal when Myers let a guy skate right into the slot to score when he could have taken the body?
Or, the 3rd goal where he let TJ Oshie stand in front of Miller and just stood next to him and did nothing when the shot came through and the puck was laying there? And, I mean, he did nothing. Just stood there like a cigar store Indian.
Tyler needs to shed the tutu. I thought he was turning the corner watching last years Flyers series when he played mean hockey. He was a physical force.
