This just pisses me off... Brodin has been doing an incredible job! What kind of ****ing bs....son of a *****!
Alright, I've lightly questioned Yeo, but this is ****ing stupid.
No offense to Spurgeon, but WTF! He's not top 2 material! Gilbert would be more suited. ****ing Spurgeon can't clear a crease to save his ass, and he sucks, always has sucked, horribly, at keeping the puck in at the blue line. He's not nearly as good at clearing his zone as Brodin is either.
After 11 games in this league, Brodin is already a top-2 defensemen. It is absolutely absurd and inexcusable that Yeo is putting Spurgeon with Suter.
In all honesty I think that Spurgeon is our worst defensemen. I feel more comfortable with Prosser out there, because he at least plays with an edge. Spurgeon is tiny, he can't clear anyone out in front of the net, he is a defensive liability, and he often fumbles the puck on the powerplay. The one thing he brings to the table is his average ability to break the puck out, but that does not offset all of the ways in which he is a liability.
Now that Brodin is with Prosser, he is on our 3rd pairing. First pairing minutes with one of the best defensemen in the league, or 3rd pairing minutes with Prosser...I wonder which is better for Brodin and the team?
