Took a lot of heat around here for not signing Semin in the off-season, not acquiring depth scoring, and not getting tougher on the back end, and the guy's come through in spades. He's done everything possible to put this team in a position to win, even to the point of acquiring a versatile forward who can win faceoffs, play PK, and stopgap for Sid while he recovers.
The man's a legend. Direct all lavish, unadulterated praise here, because we're damn lucky to have him.
I'm a big Despres fan, but him and Bort looked like garbage tonight.
to repeat myself, I watch Despres always carefully, loved him, but this tonight must be one of the worst performance by a defensman I ever seen and that was with Orpik on ice basically giving away pucks
It's the one thing that really baffles me bout this team. Most teams would come out hungry and ready to play after getting beating convincingly by a non-playoff team the night before. Nope! We come out looking completely defeated and even flatter!
