This may sound bad but I feel bad for Connolly. He look invisible out there cause he is playing with 2 plugs. He makes sweet passes and most time Crabb or Lombardi can't finish. I bet with better finishers it would look like he is contributing more
I think needsf to address the 3rd line and give Connolly a finishers/shooter. Crabb is ok but a 4th liner it would be good to see a better guy on that line who will crash the net,coupled with Lombardi speed it can make 3 full lines
Maybe there is a ufa rental that could fill that role to help us get a playoff spot
I am thinking of a guy like Smyth or Rutuu someone we don't have to keep as we guys for next year in the minors
crabb is awful! does anyone else see how useless he is??
other than that, the forwards are playing great today. lombo having a great game, but still can't finish for the life of him. but that beauty of a pass makes up for about 10 missed scoring chances at least..
He doesn't look like he's playing at the same speed as the rest of the team mentally. Skating is fast, decisions seem to be out of sync with mates.
Maybe he's trying to do too much now that Army is back and pressure is on to keep jobs?
using his big frame to create space and his skating ability to find open lanes to drive the net. He stands 6-3 and is a natural goal scorer with plenty of confidence.
He's a scout's dream in the way he prepares himself and plays an unselfish game, making smart decisions with the puck. With his bloodlines, he certainly understands what it will take to make it at the next level.
