Actually, the last two games he hasn't done any mistakes, I think he's turner the corner.



Come on, he's struggling enough at the position he played his whole life, and you want to put him on the wing? I mean, even I like to play armchair GM/Coach, but this is just complete non-sense.

EVERYTHING!

But in reality it probably would only complicate things farther than they need to be complicated.

If any defender is going to play forward on this team it is Bieksa or Ballard. They are masquerading as D-men anyways :emot-parrot: why not make Bieksa a power forward and Ballard a 2 way guy ?

The NHL DoPeS should enter politics. They lie with a straight face better than any politician in the world.

I seriously doubt the truth in that last statement, not much thought here....

He was an ALL STAR defenseman last year, has been progressing every year and is a -2 right now when he's been STRUGGLING.


I think people are a bit ridiculous sometimes
