are you serious with these threads? everyone is so fvcking in love with goals and assists. Zubie does all the unsung sh!t like winning battles along the boards and creating space for his teammates. This thread MAY have made sense 4 years ago, but not now.

 

good grief. delete this thread and the bench kovy one.

Zubrus has definitely been better under Deboer.

I love Zubs now, but he's gotten better recently. The first couple years, he struggle to develop much chemistry with Elias and Gionta. In retrospect, it seems like some of that is on Gio, and more is on Sutter. Since JL came in, and even more so with DeBo, he's been used right on offense, and we can appreciate a lot of his other qualities more.

Well, this sucks. Msweet, we need the 411 on the recovery buddy, I'm sure Zubes will be stopping by the camera store again soon since he seems to have some time off coming up.

I was worried it would be serious when he fell through the open door at the bench. Such an awkward, unexpected way to fall.

Hope he is able to recover quickly. I like zubrus for the same reasons mentioned by many above.

"Next man up," as they say. Matteau stepping up tonight in Zubie's absense for the tying goal. :)

 

Let's hope that can continue!

This. DeBo does a great job getting the most out of the guys on the ice. Let's hope the team continues to battle.

I somehow get the feeling he's really hurt worse than they are saying.

Not saying I agree with the OP but noody has really offered any stellar pro Zubrus sentiments. Me, I think he brings you a balance of everything you need, the quintessential 2 way forward with the size to be a power forward. He's willing to block shots,take shots,has good sense offensively and defensively, is hard to move off the puck and can score a timely goal. But he has nothing on Clarky...

I would say that zubie handles quite a few hockey chores better than Clarksys, ....  handling a breakout pass, carrying into the zone, regroups in the neutral zone, escape turns, etc etc.  but yeah, putting the puck in the net trumps many things!

 

one aspect of clarkys game which has REALLY improved is his feeding the point passing!  deboer really fixed that!
