Can we please just build towards next season? Please!!?
There's not much they can do in that direction.
Stephan isn't the future, though I'd like to see him play more games so Turco doesn't hurt something.
The young guys people want minutes for are hurt or suffering the more minutes they play (Niskanen is better with fewer minutes, IMO).
Benn and that group won't come up cause they're in their own minor-league playoff push.
And I don't mind the instigating call. I do mind the lack of a third-man in, the Blue who dropped his goves and threw a punch but didn't get called for anything. Even a roughing would have been something.
And yeah. That was massive fail to clear the zone by Eriksson about four times and horrible defense by Grossman, who let his guy get three unmoledsted whacks at the puck.
Stephan is in, and why not? Perhaps it will change the momentum of the team. But to put being down on three all Turco is stupid, because there has been a whole lot of fail from every single player out there. It's Neal and Conner and Ribeiro and Grossman and Robidas and Sydor and Ott and Daley and Modano and everyone right now.
