The defense is turning over the puck left and right. Liles, Vaananen, Blake, Clark, Breisbois, it doesn't matter who's out there, they're getting burned.
I'm also getting tired of watching Tanguay play. He makes so many little mistakes out there, it's amazing. He's got all the talent in the world, has accomplished so much in his career, yet he's always fugging up. I'd start entertaining trade offers for Alex Tanguay if I were Pierre Lacroix. This season is a lost cause, anyway. It's obvious we're a last place team in the Northwest Division.
I hope Aebsicher gets traded after the roster freeze, also. Budaj and Kolesnik are by far the better goalies, at least this season.
Lots of valid points there. I'd agree about Tang, and I'm a huge fan of Hejduk but man he's been almost non-existent this year as well. I also echo the sentiments about Aebi.
I'll take the 2 points even if it was ugly and close and the illegal goal was thrown in for good measure.
