Oh, I agree. Didn't mean to imply he's been bad, although a little invisible. Patches on the other hand has been a disaster. I have no idea whether it's him and DD dragging each other down, one or both just sucking or an injury, but they really need to step it up. I still think they desperately need to be split up.
Patch is obviously injured. He shouldn't have played if he was gonna play like that. I don't know what he has but he just doesn't look like he can do much out there.
This series has turned into what I thought we might see in Bruins vs. Leafs, more thuggery than skill.
Yeah, it's unfortunate. That's what I wanted to see between the bruins and leafs.. instead they're the ones playing smart. The cup isn't won in the first round. I really hope this series doesn't go to 7 games.
39 points in 43 games, pretty impressive for a guy with no nhl level skills...not to mention the guy is badly hurt and still playing.
He doesn't play with passion, with his talent set ( size, shooting, speed ), he should be much more of a presence on the ice. Maybe he lacks hockey sense he's often chasing puck carriers and putting himself in situations where he needs to skate behind the puck and he lacks intensity with his physical play. Maybe he just needs someone like PK the shout at him so he wakes up and stops playing laying back.
