Yotes use of Gordon in what seemed like every face off in the waning minutes of the game last night makes you think of what role he might have played on a Hunter team. I could have seen him fitting in quite well, his skill set in the dot would have been beneficial the other night in light of how poorly the team performed in taking face offs.
or he might have turned the puck over once and been scratched for 30 games straight.
lets be honest, there is nothing that bgordon brings that jeff halpern was not. right shot 60% face off guy.
Is it just me or is Kopitar and Bäckström copies of each other in their style of play? They are both extremely calm with the puck, excellent playmakers and surprisingly physical. They hide the puck from the defenders like no one else. Love watching them play, they will create something dangerous almost every shift.
1 seed about to get swept in the 2nd round...by an 8?
Obviously Hitchcock is a coach who simply can't win a cup.
st louis is a 2 seed. vancouver was the 1. both got bounced by an 8. its vigneault that got bounced in the first round by an 8 seed. he cant coach. hitch won a cup and lost in the second round like byslma who remains a genious.
