You don't understand. They don't just jump on the ice get used to skating, then play hockey. He hasn't been working out for 2 months.
Next game is against the Canadiens, makes a lot more sense.
No no no. I get why he isn't playing tonight.
But the Media and the FO painting it as Backstrom coming back for maybe 4 games is gonna be our savior? Come on, that's ridiculous. We lose tonight and there is no "saving" us without the Hockey Gods once again smiling upon us. But you know...we've shat all those smiles away this year.
there is not a worse player on this rather bad team right now than marcus johansson. just brutal, yikes. regression to the max. hope GMGM figures out the idea is to develop these players, not see them get worse.
