1. Bergeron didn't walk out, he got a pass
2. Gardiner had it behind the net, Phaneuf didn't need to cover Bergeron, should have been a simple breakout
3. Gardiner turned it over and the puck got to Bergeron
4. Phaneuf was slow getting over to Bergeron, but you can't fault him on that.
5. I also thought it was a weak goal on Reimer.

So you can blame Phaneuf for not reacting on a split second turnover, however I see that more of Gardiner's fault then Dion's

Looked to me like Dion was covering the other guy.

Not really. I found they put they're whistles away for both teams which is a good thing. There were a number of calls they could have made on the Leafs as well as Boston but didn't. We still had more PP's then they did.

I wonder why?

You see what you want to see. Every defenseman, even the elite ones, have a brain fart. Phaneuf is no exception.
Because for every great play he makes at least a dozen stupid mistakes?

Unless you've had personal encounters where there weren't a hundred cameras in his face, I don't know how you can judge someone's intelligence like that.
"he plays a sport that most of us wished we played for money" - how does that relate to intelligence?

"he's the captain of a franchise adored by millions" - how does that relate to intelligence?

"makes millions doing so" - how does that relate to intelligence?

"and has a great looking wife to top it all off" - how does that relate to intelligence?

Maybe Dion is a Mensa member, but I doubt it...

Phaneuf stood essentially in the middle of the crease, covering neither Bergeron (who was just standing there all alone for several seconds, so close that Phaneuf only needed to take a single step to be in range for a pokecheck) nor the passing lane to him from the side of the net. Gardiner never had possession of the puck.

As shown in the past 2 games against Boston, they are only able to get 1/2 of the available points (3 out of 6 available) when they are lucky, therefore this team is garbage and needs to be blown up and must tank to get good again.

Trade: Kessel/Bozak/JVR/Kulemin/Grabo/MacArthur/Phaneuf/Gunnarsson/Liles for draft picks. Keep KADRI.


...am I doing this right?
