What I'm getting tired of is DB's refusal to punish or bench anyone with a "name".
Despres, Lovejoy, Kennedy, Tangradi, Jeffrey - Are all on a short leash, which I don't always disagree with.
However, we've seen Martin, Kunitz, Letang, Crosby, Malkin, Dupuis, Cooke, etc all look downright horrible for games at a time, yet they keep getting trotted out there. One mistake by the aforementioned names and they'll get bumped down or get their shifts cut. Multiple bad games by any of the big names and nothing happens.
We need some kind of accountability here. When Martin makes a soft play resulting in a turnover that turns into a goal. Sit him. When our first PP unit can't even enter the zone or get a shot off.....sit them. Make a point! Start the 2nd PP unit! They did it in WBS, and I've seen other NHL coaches do it. When Malkin takes stupid penalties, bench him for a bit. I know you can't consistently scratch these guys or bench them for half the game, but you have to at least put some anger and fear into them. Torts has tough love, Therrien had tough love, we need a coaching staff that doesn't coddle the whole time, but holds them accountable for their mistakes or horrible effort/play.
Shero will make a move soon, whether it's a trade or the firing of DB.....something will be done.
