Yes! Two shutouts out of three games. Send Brendan Smith and Gus Nyquist down to the A. Heck, send Brunner there too so they can play for a winner. Make Q our #1 d-man. Let's commit to getting a dominant d-man through the draft since we cannot acquire them via trades or free agency.
I feel bad for Howard... My goodness. They've resorted to the same old "play cute" game that I hate so much.
Couldn't put it better myself. Cute game. But these players can't play a cute game. Not with a solid defense and an offense that hasn't had time to gel. They looked good on the PP against Columbus, but now it's just embarrassing. Outworked and can't string anything together. Instead of getting shots on goal and driving the net when possible, they revert to passing around Lehtonen's net and getting these useless shots on net. They might have SOG, but the scoring chances couldn't even be in the double figures I'd say.
No one really. In my opinion Brunner has been best.
Agreed. Fil has made some nice plays.
Gus had one nice play where he made a move and brought it the outside, and I thought he drew a penalty. Other than that I haven't seen much, but he's not playing a lot. Plus he is playing with turds lol.
Call me crazy, but I think Babs may have ran his course in Detroit. I guess we have to give it more time, but I had this feeling before the season even started.
Not a kneejerk reaction either, he was out coached all 3 of last postseasons. Most frustrating was the embarrassing loss against Nashville. Maybe his success is just a product of the talented roster, so far he can't do jack **** with a lesser team.
That being said I wouldn't can him, but if someone like Hitch was still available I think Kenny should give it a thought
