I'm not fan of Budaj, and he did let in one bad goal that ended up breaking the backs of the Avs tonight. But this was a team effort of crap tonight. This team need a goalie...yes.
But they need a whole lot more, like a coach, a defense, a penalty kill, and some people outside of Hejduk and Stats who can score
Hey, I'd be happy if they just played like they knew wtf they were doing out there. They've been playing like they have no direction (probably don't), no strategy (probably don't), and no idea what's going on around them.
Edit: 15 minutes into the third and only two shots on net. They were within one shot or one bad bounce of tying the game and they laid an egg.
I'd like to see Granatool go to the AHL or Junior ranks and stand out....just STAND OUT from all the other guys currently trying for their shot at an NHL head coaching position. I betcha he wouldn't...AT ALL.
Oh wait...Bohlmeister, you've actually convinced ME !
- Granatool is a great coach and even though his 29 other counterparts in the league have proven their worth and worked their way up...he's just as good as they are if not better. He doesn't have to prove anything to anyone...he's just that good. Our special teams would attest to that. (Just look at the awesome PP we just had !!! That's bound to end up as a strategy on NHL 2010 next year !)
- Arnason is a damn fine 3rd line center. The reference of "Ice Turd" is mean, hurtful and unwarranted. He's the type of guy who just makes his linemates better. As long as he keeps up his fine play, we'll be just fine.
See. Doesn't that feel better.
My point is that you can get rid of those 3 and there will be 3 more that replace them. It will be a never ending cycle of terrible players. Salei has been much worse than Clark tonight. I have also never defended Arnason, I know how terrible he is and I was dumbfounded when we re-signed him.
