We have NO ONE on any of our first three lines who do this.

Our defenseman (minus Staal) are incredibly soft as well.

When teams have the puck in our zone and are cycling it's impossible for us to get the puck.


When we have the puck in the offensive zone we lose it rather quickly (unless it's Dubinsky, who apparently learned a thing or two from Jagr)


This is our major flaw. And Tom Renney is incapable of making any of our players bigger.
Cally? Dubi? ..prucha (maybe?)....Avery soon...

I disagree. Girardi probably has the most hits on the team. He actually revels in that. Yet for all his physicality he will let a guy out from under him on the boards, or just walk around him. It's not that he an aversion to full out physical contact, as with Rozsival.

I actually think that is exactly what a coach should fix/cure. Girardi is a young player. Why would he not be able to learn and become better? My bet is he is not being instructed.

I AM agreeing with you if you are saying that Renney is not able to coach and improve a young player. And that is not acceptable.

There was that shift wth Dubinsky followed by Bett's line, 2 straight shifts in St. Louis' zone. Strong forecheck, forced turnovers, some chances generated. When we forecheck hard, we really disrupt the oppostion's rush.

But you just know that at some point this team will abandon what works and just collapse into a shell.

No where near the net. He has no idea what his purpose is.

The powerplay blows, why not 'try' Prucha on the powerplay?
