Hamrlik, Spacek, and Gomez all play powerplay, and currently they are focused on going to the point alot. Gomez carries the puck alot himself, but Hammer and Spacek play PP point which creates giveaways.
Someone with time should compare our giveaways on the road cs at home. Even thought we suck on the road, we have way less giveaways. I think the Bell Centre statisticians are giveaway trigger happy. Not saying the players aren't giving the puck away, but I don't think it's as offten as 60 times over 2 games.
The more you carry the puck, the more giveaways you are prone to have. In Spacek and Hammer case they play alot of minutes with the puck on their stick....and being semi-offensive defenceman they will attempt higher risk plays than a guy like Gill for example.
Gill is up there because of some decent brain farts....and Gomez handles the puck a ton so seeing him up there isn't surprising.
Hey look, it's Duffman; the guy in a costume that creates awareness of Duff!
- Montreal has played more games than most teams in the league;
That argument holds little water as Montreal has played more games than most but
the Rangers and Canucks have played 16 and Montreal only 15. Shouldn't the list be lead by Rangers and Canucks then? To follow that logic.
