I'm going to make this short and simple - those plays that Raymond and Schroeder made against the Blues will NEVER work in the playoffs. Playoff hockey is a whole different breed. There is tighter checking, it's more physical and passes like that do not get through.
Meanwhile, Booth plays playoff hockey. He hogs the puck, yes, but he drives it hard to the net. If someone like Raymond or Schroeder tried that they'd get their bodies broken by defencemen. Booth is one of the few Canuck forwards big and strong enough to do so, and come playoff time that's the only way we're going to score.
We need Booth in the playoffs or this team doesn't go very far.
So glad you made it short and simple DUC.
I always think people who generalise don't do themselves any favours. No space?
You see DUC the good players seek the space and make the passes and that works in any game.
By the way Boston went all the way by using the type of passes you saw last night.
