Yep - moving Sutter to Beagle's wing, imo wasn't a 'strategic' decision but a necessary one that makes the team more vulnerable.  It's not so much the faceoffs - as the defensive role in general - but what can you do if Sutter and Miller are injured - they have to lean on EP and Gaudette.  EP has elevated his game remarkably - Gaudette has had some extremely challenging, long shifts in his zone.

100%, did you also notice he lost a gear also? He has noticeably slowed down and is pushing less. I think him Miller and Brock are playing hurt.

I haven't seen anything that Jake has done in these playoffs that Mac couldn't do better.  I'm disappointed in Jake

It pains me to agree. Everyone expected more. Imagine he has a monster game tomorrow :lol: one can dream

Might be a bit of a stretch but if we had their 4th line and they had ours, the series would be even at 2-2 and this series will go 7 games.

 

Think thats unfair on Motte... he has been a revelation during these playoff, but we could have used a ‘heavy’ bruiser willing to hit anything with a heartbeat on that line.

I understand your frustration but we haven't entered our cup window yet. 

We will have many chances at the Cup.

In fact, I think we're going to win it several times with this team.

Sorry, nope, in 2011 and for a few years after we were by far the best team in the league but we weren’t the best playoff team, we are headed down that same road. We may have some great regular season success by we are far far away from a cup without some serious changes.

Yes, there will be improvements to the team.

I should have said core.

I didn't mean to imply that this exact team will win us cups down the road.

He couldn't be worse than Willie D. 

 

Willie was another level bad. 

 

That I agree 

 

Willie was beyond incompetent 

 

I remember what Kovalchuk said when he was in LA about Willie. Something to the extent of I have no clue what he is saying or trying to accomplish

I've seen Virtanen blow by defenseman in transition a handful of times - no player on the roster can match his ability to do so.

And then he loses the puck or makes a bad pass.

Big Mac in for Sutter please.

Sutter does too much right to take out barring injury. There's only two guys I'd even consider taking out to insert Mac - Gaudette and Virtanen. Given two of our centers are sporting hand/wrist injuries Virtanen is really the only choice.

Yeah. I mean, it's not a surprise that he's no longer coaching in the league.
