I noticed that he allowed the players time to enjoy the win on the ice and met them in the room- leave after his coaches hand shake. I liked that he didn't stand there and scower them or pat them on the back, no mixed messages. Excellent start and finish, I know we were pumped but the skated well and looked in game form from start to finish. I love RJ on the penalty kill and the big line united for PPs.
I am all for that, but you dont scratch one of you most productive players to date. I say if you are going to put someone like Grant in there, rotate him with Kapanen. That way Kapanen will stay fresh for the end of the year.
Dare I say after one game that although Hitch misused the youngsters, Stevens is misusing the verterans
Things I have noticed about Stevens? The team is still full of heartless panty wastes
I see more desire, it's just the wrong group of players. I don't think you'll see it in the third because this game is cooked and their confidence is even lower than in Buffalo. But Thursday night and the start of tonight, there was definitely a spark and that looseness we were hoping for.
But when you look at it...
Hatcher and Rathje still stink. They're slow, useless players. Don't give me **** about Rathje's "positioning". His ****** positioning was the reason for Crosby's second goal.
