You have no patience. You want these huge sweeping changes, and that's not how it works. People said be patient with the Marty thing, and it worked out. Volchenkov got bought out, Tallinder got traded. Fayne was let go so Larsson could step up (Severson did instead), and Gelinas has shown he can't play defense yet. Peters and Boulton are long gone, Janssen is in the minors, replaced by Tootoo and Ruutu who can at least play hockey. Josefsen has yet to capitalize on his chances.
Sal will be gone this off season. Zids might be depending on Gelinas.
Would you like to know who the only forwards who played LESS than Zubrus did tonight? Gionta and Tootoo.
So you're saying the guy who sucks less got more minutes than the two guys that suck more. Brilliant!
Sal actually had one good play tonight. ONE. And that's when he played the man instead of the puck. Most of the time he looks like a hot, fumbling mess who freaks whenever the puck comes near him. Larsson has his issues but he keeps his wits about him most of the time.
Bottom line: We don't have a shut down line and pretty much no shut down D so we might as well bench Gio, Sal and Tootoo and call up Matteau, Helgeson and Boucher because either way we're probably fvcked.
