fnveenie Posted January 27, 2016 Report Share Posted January 27, 2016 Well. Hopefully the situation is addressed this off-season and Alex can be given a full-season role at center with decent wingers next year. I think a huge problem with this team has been the "WE'RE CUP CONTENDERS, YAY!" mentality. It feels like the team is afraid to use younger players in more prominent roles as if it's going to hurt our chances at winning the Cup this year... Well. Bad news team! We're not winning anything this season. I just don't understand the logic though. The sky is falling and we have vets like Pleks and DD and Markov playing the worst hockey I've ever seen them play. We have tried literally every possible solution besides the ones that make the most sense. Eller is playing well, Galchenyuk was until he was moved to the wing. Eller has looked good with Patch for small amounts of time and is currently our best center over the last few games. Why do neither of them get a shot in the top line C position? This is after we've resorted to ridiculous ideas like Flynn playing with our perennial 35 goal scorer. I just don't get it. It makes zero sense and I don't see how supposedly knowledgeable hockey people can't pick that up. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
