Now don't get me wrong. But how is it, that leino is allowed to do every bad thing that Zherdev does, without any punishment?
I hate how they both carry the puck too often and lose it to the other team too. But, Leino has 28 assists compared to Zherdevs 4 assists and he actually plays consistent defense. That is probably why he is not always in the dog house like Zherdev is.
First game i've seen in about a week, so I don't know if my observations hold true for a longer time frame but from what I see today we are too focused on scoring.
The scoring ability of this team is other worldly. Every line is loaded, but every line gambles at every opportunity to score. Yes you make the occassional gamble every now and then, but this team really gambles every time.
Giroux and richards rush on the sh chance, proved to be a bad gamble because Giroux was to exhausted to get in front of Vanek who carried the puck into the zone untouched. Now come playoff time teams tighten up and this may all go away, or it may not. THis time of year all teams have tightened up a bit, yet we are still playing wide open. IM thinking this team may be too centered around scoring, instead of more rounded in all aspects
