I agree I never liked him as a player and wanted him to be traded at the beginning of the season.
We have enough depth of offensive d man to let him go. Also for a guy who is fairly big and slow he is soft. We should have kept Sutton, at least Sutton would clear the front of the net and deliver a few huge hits.
Robidas or Regehr would make a nice replacement but I think it would take more than Kuba to acquire either.
For his cap hit we could possibly get a decent powerforward like Clowe, Hartnell or Penner. Or maybe we could take a shot at getting a player like Shane Doan.
Kuba has pretty much been brutal since returning from his injury except for maybe 5 games. I really don't know what's going on with him as last year, it was his consistency in all aspects of the game (Powerplay, defense, etc) that made him who he was.
This year, he either has a really good game or a really bad game and so far, there have been way too many bad games. Bad turnovers in the defensive zone, inability to keep the puck in the offensive zone, and just what seems like a lackadaisical approach to the game.
I don't know, I find myself to be a fairly patient person with players but I think this is way overdue. Simply put, I expect more out of a veteran player like Kuba.
Gong show out there tonight for him. Horrendous. Please tell me him and Picard aren't going back to their cluster**** ways.
Tell me about it.
He is really leaving Karlsson in some tough situations.
Really hope we can find a way to move this guy out at some point before next season.
Agree with this. Kuba wasn't a hero out there, but who the **** was? He made some solid plays, I thought he was one of our better guys out there tonight... if not the best on our blue line at least. He definitely accomplished as much as the other 5.
I was wondering how long it would take in the season for one of these threads to pop up... think the title needs to be changed to "This Thread is bloody useless" cause it sure as hell doesn't describe Kuba's play.
