Boedker needs to get off of Doan's line. He's wasting away with him.
What Boedker needs is an actual goal scorer to set up. Sure,w e all say he needs to shoot more, but on that line he doesn't exactly have a playmaker to help him either. I also feel like he's wasting away on that line.
So, what you guys are saying is we need a goal scorer? How long have we been saying that? lol
I think everyone will be much more content once we are healthy again. Right now this is just brutal.
Hanzal and Vrbata aren't bad options, but other than that we have no real depth on offense. These last few games have really made me miss Ray Whitney.
Sucks to be down 1-0 to a pretty soft goal though. Flames aren't really looking that threatening in my opinion, and neither are we. Just some half chances here and there, and the difference is the softie. Would not be surprised to see it end this way.
I hope this is not a chronic back issue with Hanzal that they are trying to mitigate with rest. He looked perfectly fine his last game out, then gets shut down. Makes no sense, unless he is attempting to play through something.
If it was his back (and I know it has been in the past) wouldn't he have had surgery on it during the off-season?
