Ignoring Tokarski's terrible game and Pavelec's game of the season.... PP is useless. Wont really go anywhere unless we fix that. NYR and Tampa are going to kill us. If we get past Ottawa or Washington. Which im pretty sure we will.

9 for 13.... Not great. How is Mike Condon doing in Hamilton?

I see a comeback as soon as we put Price back in goal.

Yes. As a group we are very simple. Score and we like you. Don't score and you are useless. Look at Guillaume Latendresse. We expected DSP to come in and score at the same pace if not better than when he was on a team where he played with the top two lines. On a team that is 23rd in the league in GA... 6th in GF, and 17th in goal difference. David Desharnais.... Rene Bourque. Thomas Vanek.

Im not saying he is doing great with us because he hits. I am saying that we tend to jump quickly and bash players who dont score in games we lost without thinking. How many points does Galchenyuk have in his last 14 games? 3 assists and is a minus 6. Im not seeing a lot of Gally is a bust. But a lot of DSP is a bust...

While I agree with what you are saying, let's keep in mind that the same system that has stifled our offensive chances is one of the main reasons why we are number one in the NHL right now.

Lots of hate right now for DSP. Just goes to show you that if you don't score on this team, fans do not see any value in your play. Comes about specifically right after a loss as well. Lead our team in hits, and we clamored for a player who hits and has some size. I know we expect him to score 40 goals a season as well. But i think we need to realize exactly what it is we have.

5 points in 13 games is nothing huge to worry about losing, especially considering he was tried right away and has spent time on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. And the bulk of his points came in his first few games, he has points in one of his last 8 games and was down to playing 6 minutes in his last game. I dont think Sekac is better than we thought, I think we realize we have a lot of talent and maybe not a need for him specifically. I think we knew he was a good player. A lot of DSP point in Anahiem came in games where he played top two line minutes. I think you are right when you say his checks and aggressive style willl be more valuable in the playoffs. I would love to see him in front of the net a bit more. But then who will go in the corners and get the puck. We cycle and chip more than we crash the net. It takes time to acclimate for more role players to a different style based on speed. I think we will come to appreciate what he brings more and more, Josh Gorges style.

Who would sign him? As soon as the economy in Russia improves he could simply ditch again. Talented player, but zero loyalty.
