I honestly believe R.A. Dickey throws his knuckleball harder than Smyth can shoot a puck. That was an absolute rocket by Weber. I don't think a hay bale would have stopped that either. Here we go again tied going into the 3rd, maybe they can pull out the win for a change.
I think it's good for them - they need to be reminded that they can't always dangle around the whole team and sometimes need to dump and chase to set up a cycle.
Good for them? It sucks the offensive life out of them. Maybe if Jones/Smyth/Hartikainen had some speed or had any idea how to properly cycle, it would be good for them but those guys are too slow to keep up in a dump and chase game, they are always behind the play and when they get the puck behind the net they (Smyth and Jones) can't handle the puck or in Hartikainen's case, he hoge the puck.
RNH and Eberle aren't helping the cause either. It seems like they got a heart transplant in the offseason and have decided to cruise through each game instead of asserting themselves.
