Kinda reminds me of the Devils game a few weeks ago. Really bad first period down 2-0 and we lost 2-1. Just the way the game has been going. We have a difficult time facing uphill battles. Sometimes it be nice to play an opponent like us that would let us back in the game
Seriously... I think we should trade off Carcillo, Zherdev and maybe Shelley. I seriously think that Wellwood should replace all 3. Fiesty, fast and smart. Better hands than Carcillo or Shelley.
One of these 3 is not like the others.
Seriously though, I don't see a good reason to throw Wellwood into the lineup right now. He has 2 games of NHL experience and the only role he would fit into right now is on a 4th pk/checking line; a position quite frankly Carcillo or Shelley are indeed better suited to fulfill right now.
Of course we can always just waive shelley, trade Carcillo, and dress Zherdev full time when Lappy miraculously comes back in time for the Playoffs and go on an awesome, team-inspiring run (well, a guy can dream )
