I just saw that and screamed. Hannan has been far worse then Ellis. Ellis at least has an offensive upside with the PP. Hannan is an offensive wasteland and is costing us goals. Let's see who the forward scratch is. Erat should sit but we know he won't. Trotz had no problem scratching Gill so why not Hannan?
Leaving Hannan in just shows how screwed up Trotz is. The guy has the worst+/- on the team yet he gets a pass? He has been terrible with everyone! Trotz has got to go or I will seriously start rethinking my loyalty and my financial commitment to this team.
Cooper is saying Barkley maybe playing with Weber. Hopefully Josi back with Klein as if Hannan is with Klein Trotz has lost his mind.
Really, Bartley would be good with Weber, I made it a point to watch him closely the past few games and he is playing great for being 3 games into his career. That is one of the better moves I see right now, plus Josi and Klein can be a nice pairing as well.
Now Hannan is terrible and should be scratched. Also I don't think Boychuk could be scratched, but he does always fall over, and I think he does need coaching to be a decent NHL player. It should be Erat that takes a seat. I can see the logic behind playing veterans over rookies if both are playing equally terrible, veterans have actually done something right to stay in the league. But its obvious who the two worst players are on the ice right now.
