When you're headed to the playoffs and playing a non playoff team its pretty simple what you need to do. Win the game and avoid injuries. Mission accomplished. Whining that your power forward didn't bang enough in a mean nothing game is dumb. Reserve your judgement for the playoffs.

And he probably had a little desire and passion in his game.

Nice post.

He was trying to make plays for kes and be back enough to be defensively in position.... That's what I saw.... He's sticking back by the d a lot .... Trying not to get benched I assume....

Watched the game but couldn't find him so I thought I would check the stats.

Give it a rest. He set up that Kesler goal last game in the Phoenix passing it to Bieksa, then it went to Raymond, and Kesler chipped it in. Once again he had the 3rd assist tonight on Raymonds goal. Just because he isn't on the score sheet doesn't mean he isn't chipping in. Btw the title is stupid ;)

This is what happens when you venture out of the Sovereign Thread.

He will get better with age. Once he gets better at protecting the puck, it will all come together. He's trying to dish it off to Kesler and let him do all the dirty work. Kas has to take the puck to the house and let chaos ensue.

Is it just me... or does he looks like he panics whenever he touches the puck?

I can literally tell he's got the puck just by seeing the movements of his body... before I even recognize the face or the number. He holds his hands extremely high up on his stick. Almost like he's golfing. His puck possession skill is pretty abysmal to begin with, and holding his stick in such a way can't help.

I like the kid.. and I really want him to succeed... but his hockey iq just seems so low.

YES, this is all I ask and he is very capable of this... even at his age.

He looked decent tonight but at times he does look lost out there. He just needs some stability of line mates instead of AV tossing him from line to line. If AV leaves him with Kesler a few games I bet he will really start to show what kind of player he can be.

On a side note, he really needs to stop fighting. That's what Sestito is for.

No he shouldn't stop fighting thats what we need. We need big bodies that can drop the gloves,power move inside,score goals,screen goalies. That's what L.A had they had big bodies nobody was a small guy that couldn't drop the gloves from 2nd line down.
