So I guess the message is if you're the only one to show up for games 1 and 2, you'll be benched for game 3? Either way, I hope Schneider has made good use of these past 2 weeks off and developed a scoring touch.
Well, this season we don't have a Kesler that is completely broken, and we have healthy? Sedins. Well, Daniel isn't coming off of being assaulted. It's a dif team this season. Much different.
So in otherwords, unlike last year where people made excuses for this team, this year there are no excuses. Though people will probably still point to the fact that Schneider didn't start games 1 or 2 as if that somehow had an affect on our inability to score.
How long has it been since Schroeder played a game? Has he even been practicing? I think I'd still prefer him over Ebbett. But we can't expect much from Schroeder given the circumstances. Really tough situation wrt our forwards. AV has to play the hell out of the twins' and kesler's lines and hope they can find a rhythm.
Might as well start Schneider. Nothing to lose, and if he falters we just put Luongo back in.
Interesting that Ballard slots in at the expense of Alberts. I'm fine with the change I guess, but it seems like a bit of a scapegoat move instead of benching Bieksa or Edler. Add to that you could scratch Corrado and put Ballard/Alberts together as they've played well together in the past.. just a bit odd.
Now Ballard plays? haha, I hate AV so much. I guess AV will try to blame all of these players that haven't played in awhile if this team loses tonight. I'm sure he's just waiting to throw Ballard under the bus. Putting my hate for AV aside, Alberts has played okay.
