- Comment on Odds & Ends
I'm glad that someone else is thinking the way I am regarding Streit and Dandenault. It just makes sense to me. Dandenault provides size, speed and tenacity on the line. Streit has a good shot but is a defensive liability back there.
- Comment on About last night ...
It had it's moments, but I found last nights' game difficult to watch in stretches, especially during the first period. And yes, I too called for the tying goal in the last 30 seconds. But that could have been avoided had Koivu at LEAST shot at the empty net. What do you lose? If you miss and get called for icing, you stop the flow, get a chance to set up for a defensive zone face off (which given the turn of the tide in that department during the later stages of the game, Smolinski actually had a shot at winning or tying up the circle and wasting some time). Or he scores. Either would have been preferable to a neutral zone dump into an oncoming rush. Ouch. Price has been excellent. That kid has a bright future. Komisarek continues to sacrifice the body and Latendresse looked impressive on the top line. I still think they should have Dandenault and Streit swap positions though. We could use the size on the line, and Streit...well, maybe he just needs those hot dogs.
